I’m Afraid To Quit

A lot of people that come to see us at Quit Smoking in 60 Minutes in Capalaba say that they are afraid or fearful about quitting smoking.

We use hypnotherapy to help people to quit smoking in 60 minutes and a key to this being successful is that the person must want to quit smoking cigarettes. if they are fearful about quitting then this must first be addressed.

They see smoking as almost a friend: it’s always there for them and they have been doing it for a long time. What will they do if they do not have smoking?

Let’s look at […]

What’s Underneath?

We sometimes get clients at Quit Smoking expert who go back to smoking after the quit smoking in 60 minutes process. There are usually two main reasons: the client does not really quit or deep in the unconscious mind there is a perceived benefit.
This perceived benefit in the unconscious mind was really brought home to me the other day. I had a client the other day that had successfully stopped smoking cigarettes with hypnosis for over a year and then started again.
When the client arrived I asked him to tell me what had happened and how it had made them […]

What’s Down Under?

At Quit Smoking Expert we sometimes get people who believe that they want to quit smoking cigarettes but there is something else going on underneath it all. Quitting smoking in 60 minutes requires all of your focus and attention to succeed. If you have something going on down under then the chances of you quitting smoking are significantly reduced.

I had someone come to me to quit smoking. During the initial questioning some of his answers lead me to ask the question, “what’s going on in your relationship?”.

This […]

I messed up

I had a lady come to me at quit expert to quit smoking in 60 minutes. With this program I use a mixture of hypnotherapy and NLP to help people to stop smoking cigarettes.

One of the keys to success is that you have to want to, but you also have to have good reasons to quit. In other words you have to want to but you also have to have a why!

In the course of the discussion before starting the process of quitting smoking I asked her why she wanted to quit smoking. She gave me her reasons and at […]

The Trap

How dare you sneak up
Lured me with your scent
You have imposed a false lifestyle
And stolen my health
Big man, tough man, standing so tall
Glamour in adverts and movies
With your taxes and all

I saw you from childhood
I was conditioned to see
That this is the coolest
The best way to be
Dragged kicking and screaming
No will to resist
Into Venus flytrap I gradually slipped

Two dozen years later
Already tired and sold
How did it come to this
With your uncompromising hold
I can’t even work or answer the phone
Without reaching for a smoke
How am I so prone?

Ink now to paper desperate to stop
Smoke surely billowing
As these words are being cropped
With […]

Nicotine, poisonous even third hand

At Quit Smoking Expert here in Capalaba we realise how poisonous and dangerous nicotine is. We know that inhaling smoke from a cigarette someone else is smoking is dangerous. In fact they now call it passive smoking. I believe that the dangers from passive smoking have now increased because of banning smoking in shopping centres etc. Sounds weird, think about it. Because you now cannot smoke in a shopping centre all the smokers congregate outside to smoke, usually outside the entrances and exits. This means that you usually have to pass through a cloud of second hand smoke which exposes […]

Can I trust You?

The other day at Quit Smoking in 60 Minutes I had an email from a lady who said that if she came to me for quitting smoking cigarettes, could she trust me?
That is a really important question because if there is no trust then the process of stopping smoking will not work. In fact when you think about it, it doesn’t matter what it is because without trust the process will not work. In a lot of cases people who come to see me have never experienced hypnosis before and therefore need to trust that I will do the right […]

Quit Smoking is a Series of Small Decision

In today’s world the term “instant gratification” is often used”. At Quit Smoking in 60 Minutes we subscribe to this thinking. People want to quit smoking and they want to quit now!! Many people do not believe that you can quit smoking cigarettes in 60 minutes but the reality is that the unconscious mind can accept suggestions and act on them extremely quickly.
For hypnosis to be successful in quitting smoking you have to want to quit. You have to be at the point where you have had enough. Quite often this decision is a result of a series of small […]

False Expectations Appearing Real

I’m doing a walk on the top of the highest building on the Gold Coast in Australia. I’m attached to the building by a strap and harness that can lift 2.5 tonnes; I know this because I read the label on the harness. My guide now says go to the edge hold onto the strap and lean back outward from the building. I am immediately assaulted by fear, s..t what happens if I fall? Logically this is impossible but I have fallen into the trap of fear. Playing out what could happen if I fall. I reassess and think that […]

Smoking Helps You to Survive

At Quit Smoking in 60 Minutes in Capalaba I have been researching some of the benefits of smoking. Most people will say that there are no benefits to smoking cigarettes, however you do nothing if you do not get a benefit, hence you do get benefits.

From the age of 12 to about 25 the urge to fit in and be accepted can and will override the consequences of our actions. It is my experience that the urge to fit in will override consequences until we die. The urge to fit in and be accepted is translated by the brain as […]
