How do you value you?

Recently at Quit Smoking in 60 Minutes in Capalaba I have had several people questioning the cost of quitting smoking. It is quite interesting as I have found that people are asking this question as they do not fully understand their choices. You always have choices, in this situation you can either choose to pay and quit smoking or decide that it is too expensive and carry on smoking.
Let’s look at the consequences of these decisions.
By deciding to pay and quit smoking you will become healthier, live longer and your chances of heart disease and cancer will drop dramatically. All […]

What’s In Your Mind?

Most smokers that I see at Quit Smoking in 60 Minutes in Capalaba have taken up smoking to fit in. the habit of smoking cigarettes has been put into the unconscious mind but has been warped so that the unconscious mind thinks that by smoking it is protecting you. When you have a habit like this, linked to survival, it can be hard to eliminate.
There are many ways to quit smoking but the biggest problem is that when you remove the habit of smoking from the unconscious mind you leave a void. Nature will not have a void and will […]

Perceptions

As they say perceptions are reality and that is why it is really good not to have perceptions of hypnosis but in particular hypnotic trance.
When someone has a perception of trance it does two things: it takes away from your concentration and if the trance is not like you imagined you think that you have not gone into trance. When this happens you then begin to question what has happened.
I had a customer at Quit Smoking in Capalaba the other day who did not think that she had gone into trance. When I asked her about this she told me […]

Where is Health in Your Values?

At Quit Smoking Expert in Capalaba I am often asked the question by women of why they were able to quit smoking when they were pregnant and then took it up after the baby was born.
This is all about your values and where they stand on your hierarchy list. You will live your life according to your values. The higher something is on your values hierarchy the easier it is to accomplish and you will not procrastinate. When a woman falls pregnant the value of health often rises up the list of values and often becomes the top value. The […]

Emotional Smoking

One of my clients came back the other day as he had started smoking. He started smoking within 48 hours of doing the quit process. When this happens it usually happens for one of two reasons: you don’t really want to quit or deep in the unconscious mind there is a feeling that there is a benefit.
After some questioning it transpired that the client thought that he wanted to quit smoking but deep in his unconscious mind was an emotional tie to smoking. You see the client was spending all his money and energy on bringing up his family and […]

Smoking Is My Friend

I’ve recently had a few people that have come to me at quit smoking in 60 minutes in Capalaba that have told me that smoking is like a friend to them. It is always there and they can get comfort from it.
This is seriously flawed thinking. Smoking will shorten your life, it is often a slow and miserable way to die, it increases your chance of stroke, it increases your chance of cancer and heart disease plus many other things. If you knew someone that would slowly and surely kill you would you be friends with them? Of course the […]

Mindchatter

I was recently talking to someone who has quit smoking and they were remarking on the mind chatter that is going on. They said that it was constant and whilst it seemed to go away when they were busy the moment they were not the mind chatter came back and it was really hard to stay on track with quitting.
Smoking is a habit that lies in the unconscious mind and smokers train themselves well unconsciously to smoke with cartain circumstances ie: boredom, drinking etc. If this unconscious habit is not addressed in the unconscoius mind it results in mind chatter […]

Old Habits Die Hard

Smoking is a habit and not an addiction. It’s often a strong habit as it is often associated with fitting in and survival. Pavlov was a Russian psychologist that trained dogs by ringing a bell when he fed them. Eventually he got to the stage that when he rang the bell the dogs would salivate and expect food. You see he trained them well.
As smokers this is exactly what you have done. You have trained yourself well to smoke with certain circumstances and triggers. You have trained yourself to smoke when you get stressed, drink alcohol, after meals etc. millions […]

Why Shock Does Not Work

At Quit Smoking in 60 Minutes in Capalaba I have been carrying out my own survey on the effect of the horrible pictures that they put on cigarette packets and the cost of smoking. Both these measure have been implemented to reduce the number of people that smoke.
In almost 100% of people that I have surveyed the picture on the pack has made no difference at all. I ask people if they know what the picture is on the pack and does it make them want to give up. In just about all cases the person does not know what […]
