How to relieve stress without smoking

Many people who smoke cigarettes say that they do it to relieve any stress that they may have. Smoking does and it does not relieve stress.

When you inhale the nicotine from a cigarette it causes your blood vessels to constrict, this interferes with your blood circulation. When you get stressed your blood goes to your muscles so that they can react, they tense up. Smoking interferes with the blood circulation and makes the stress worse!!

On the other hand, the act of putting a cigarette to your mouth and taking it away plus the deep breathing of the smoke helps relieve […]

Smoking Cigarettes makes you an Outcast

When you first started smoking cigarettes it was probably the in thing. Your friends or family might have smoked around you and it was cool to smoke. It was a way to fit in. You may even have started to smoke as an act of rebellion.

In Australia especially, it is becoming more and more hard to find a place to smoke. People look at you as if you are an outcast when you are standing outside smoking.

It is ironic that most […]

How to stop your suicidal habit of smoking

Smoking is just a suicidal habit that can lead to an early and miserable death. Just about everybody that I see wants to quit smoking because of the effect it has on their health.

Her next statement said it all; she said that she had just turned 36 and was beginning to feel the health effects of smoking. She did not have […]

To Succeed you need to Engage

I had a client come to see me for quit smoking. Before we started I was careful to explain that you have to engage for the process to succeed. In other words, you have to accept all suggestions and act on them.
Not long into the hypnosis session I noticed that she was just closing her eyes but not accepting the suggestions that I was giving her. I stopped the session and then asked her what was going on for her. She told me that she was consumed about the recent death of a friend and was finding it very hard […]

Why can people smoke and be healthy?

Some people can smoke all their lives and it does not seem to affect them. They live to a ripe old age and they die from something not related to smoking.

The answer I believe is that we do not know. What I do know is that these people do not represent the norm. It is a complex interaction of factors that contribute to the effects of smoking and these include lifestyle and genetics.

 

Just because your father lived to a ripe old age and was not affected by smoking does not mean the same thing will happen to you. You may […]
