How Quit Smoking Hypnotherapy Works
How quit smoking hypnosis works is by replacing the ‘habit’ of smoking with a new habit of breathing fresh air!
Most people think that the nicotine in tobacco is a highly addictive substance. All research has shown that nicotine is not addictive, but we have been taught that it is addictive. Smoking tricks the subconscious mind into thinking that it (smoking) is linked to safety and survival. How this happens is that most people start smoking between the ages of 13 and 18. At this time, a teenager is trying desperately to ‘fit in’ or ‘belong’ to a group. Smokers are a group. If your mates, parents or someone you want to associate with smokes, you will join the group, to fit in. After time, your subconscious mind believes that, as ‘safety is in belonging’, then smoking keeps you safe. That is why smoking has such a hold over you.
Perception of Relaxation
Cigarettes creates perceived feelings of momentary relaxation, increased energy and improved concentration. In reality, nicotine is a stimulant which has the opposite effect to relaxation. The nicotine in cigarettes cause the blood vessels to constrict which interferes with the blood circulation and causes your blood pressure to rise rapidly. This increases stress. The feeling of energy is due to the ‘sugar hit’, 20% of cigarettes is sugar!
These feelings of relaxation are short lived and do not actually come from the nicotine but the ‘action of smoking’. The action being: taking a deep breath and also the movement of the hand to the mouth and sucking. It is the adult equivalent of sucking a dummy or a pacifier!
Many mainstream methods of quitting smoking neglect to recognise how complex the issue of smoking dependence is. The ‘actions’ or triggers of smoking are deeply rooted in subconscious, and most methods to ‘quit’ only address the physical cravings. This is what sets our quit smoking hypnotherapy apart.
