It doesn’t control me

Just recently at Quit Smoking expert in Capalaba I conducted a survey on clients to see if they thought that smoking and cigarettes controlled them. only about 30% of people thought that smoking controlled them which was quite surprising.

If you think about it the act of smoking cigarettes these days is very inconvenient. There are fewer and fewer places to smoke and it is more and more anti-social. People have to go out in all sorts of weather to smoke and interrupt what they are doing to smoke.

Who Do You Trust?

Trust is an interesting concept, it can be defined as: Reliance on another person or entity. Trust starts to establish itself the moment you meet a person. You sum this up very quickly from how the person looks, speaks, how they stand and the tone of the voice. Trust then continues to build as you go along.

Hypnotherapy has a huge element of trust as quite often people think that they are doing something that is new or unknown. You are trusting the hypnotherapist to do the right thing by you.

Trust is also a two way street and not only does […]

Quit Smoking Now and Live 10 Years Longer

The effect of smoking on the skin and aging is obvious when I see clients at Quit Smoking in 60 Minutes in Capalaba. Smokers do look older than they are.
A new study says that if women quit smoking before the age of 30 they could almost completely reverse the impact of smoking, while those aged forty could stand to add at least ten years to their life.
It may surprise you to learn that, in both the US and the UK, smoking ranks higher than obesity as the leading cause of preventable deaths.
This fact has spurred UK researchers, funded by Cancer […]

What’s Trust Got To Do With It?

If you want to go into a hypnotic trance to quit smoking you need to trust your hypnotherapist. One of the most important things to establishing trance is to trust and accept all the suggestions that your hypnotherapist gives you 100%. If you question or do not accept the suggestion then you will not go into trance. It’s fundamental in going into trance.

The other day at Quit Smoking in 60 Minutes in Capalaba had a client and as we were talking I could see that this person saw the world as black and white and that he judged people solely […]

So what’s Hypnosis?

I get a lot of clients here at quit smoking expert in Capalaba with some very weird and strange notions of what hypnosis is. Believe it or not but the most common question is, am I going to make them cluck like a chicken. Unfortunately most people have had their beliefs of hypnosis developed from stage shows or TV. Hypnosis is so much more than entertainment, I don’t even have a gold watch to hypnotise people!

Hypnosis has been around since the early days of the Egyptians where they had sleep clinics. In fact hypnosis is a powerful tool to change […]

Teenagers Have As Much Trouble Quitting Smoking As Adults Do

The sooner you quit smoking the greater your chances are of staving off a host of smoking-related health issues, including emphysema, lung cancer and heart disease. However, putting out that last cigarette is easier said than done. And it’s not just adult smokers who have a difficult time quitting the habit.
A new study finds that teens experience many of the same negative psychological effects during abstinence as adults do, even if they had been smoking only a short time. Although, there are some exceptions to these findings, according to researchers at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island.
“Adolescents are showing — […]

Electronic Cigarettes

The World Health Organisation has just come out with a recommendation that electronic cigarettes are harmful. In the past they have endorsed the electronic cigarette as there has not been enough evidence that the electronic cigarette is harmful.
The electronic cigarette is just another way to deliver nicotine to the body and anybody that thinks that nicotine is not harmful is deluding themselves. Nicotine is a stimulant and when it enters the body it causes the blood vessels to constrict. By doing this it increases your blood pressure and thus your chances of stroke. By constricting your blood vessels nicotine interferes […]

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.

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.

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 […]
