It’s not just lung cancer

When people think of diseases associated with smoking cigarettes they often think of lung cancer or heart disease. Whilst these are the most known diseases it is just the tip of the iceberg. Here are some of the lesser known diseases caused by smoking:

• Cancer: bladder, liver, colorectal, cervical
• Diabetes
• Erectile dysfunction
• Ectopic pregnancy
• Vision loss
• Rheumatoid arthritis
• Stroke
• Weakening of bones
• Hearing loss
• Poor circulation
• Crohn’s disease
• Acid reflux

This is by no means the entire list of diseases caused by smoking. The question is, given the fact that we know that smoking destroys our health why in most cases […]

Stop Smoking Quickly

I recently received an email from a client of mine!  She said, “Hi Steve it’s been over two and a half years since you helped me to stop smoking.  I have the odd thought of a cigarette but I do nothing about it. Thank you.”
This made my day as she had been smoking for 50 years, 30 to 40 cigarettes a day.

Smoking Habit

People ask me how is it possible to stop smoking so quickly! How can you change such a long-ingrained habit with one session of hypnosis? Hypnosis allows you to move the critical part of the mind, the conscious […]

My favourite hobby is to travel so by helping people to quit smoking via Zoom is that I get to meet people from all sorts of places and backgrounds and hear about their lives..

Imagine Life with No Smoking

What do you imagine happens during your Quit Smoking hypnosis session?  Often people who come to quit smoking, think that it is up to the hypnotherapist to make them stop smoking.    I suppose that could be an acceptable expectation.  However, the only person who can make change in your life is you.  Your therapist is the facilitator of the change, but the client makes the change happen.  It is essential that You decide ‘you want to stop smoking’.   You decide the result you want is to be a permanent non-smoker!   The hypnotherapist skill is to make suggestions to your […]

Hypnosis, an excellent way to stop smoking

Hypnosis, an excellent way to stop smoking

I recently received this from someone who I helped to stop smoking cigarettes.

Before I came to you I was smoking 30 cigarettes plus a day. I had been smoking for 30 years and I was sceptical about hypnosis. It’s now three years later and I’m still a non-smoker and I have not had any cravings from the moment you used hypnosis to help me to quit smoking. Thank you.

Wow what a great pick me up for the day!

The problem with smoking cigarettes is that the habit tricks the unconscious mind into thinking that smoking is associated with safety and survival. […]

Look to the future and stop smoking

Let’s face it we all now know that smoking is not good for us from a health point of view. One of the things that doesn’t help is that the effect of smoking cigarettes on your health only starts to become apparent from your mid 30’s onward.

This often means that you can smoke for 10 to 15 years without thinking that smoking is destroying your health. Most people that come to me to quit smoking are 35 and over. They can feel the effect that smoking is having on their health and they worry about what it will do to […]

I really want to

I had someone come to me recently to quit smoking. He said that he had been diagnosed with terminal cancer and that he wanted to stop smoking cigarettes.
I said to him, if you have terminal cancer why do you want to quit smoking? He replied that he just wanted to quit the habit. It had nothing to do with health, he just wanted to quit smoking.
From this point, I knew that when I helped him quit with hypnosis it would be very, very successful. Why’s that I hear you ask. The answer is that as with all things in life […]

Quit Smoking, Lose a Friend

Quiet often when someone comes to me to quit smoking they tell me that it is the only thing that is always there, it’s like a friend.

The problem is that this friend is slowly but surely killing them! It sounds dramatic but we know that smoking destroys your health and exposes you to a horrible way to die. You would not make friend with someone that would slowly but surely kill you, but that’s your friendship with smoking.
Let’s look a bit further at this relationship that people have with smoking. I think that you will agree that most people want […]

Quit Smoking – Address the cause

A lot of treatments to quit smoking address the symptoms, smoking, rather than the cause of why you smoke. To successfully stop smoking cigarettes, you need to break the cause of why you smoke.
Our brains can be quiet primitive, especially when it comes to survival. In the days when we were cavemen and women the chances of survival were improved if you stuck together in a group. People start smoking to fit in. it might be because friends are smoking, family is smoking or workmates.
When you have your first cigarette the conscious mind goes: hey this is cool I’m fitting […]

Why Did You Start Smoking?

I have been using hypnosis for many years to help people quit smoking. In all that time, everyone has started smoking to fit in.
The subconscious mind wants to keep you safe and healthy, unfortunately the habit of smoking tricks the subconscious mind into thinking that smoking cigarettes is associated with safety and survival.
When you are in danger your chances of survival increase if you are in a group. This is why animals, fish and even insects hang around in groups. If the people or people that you look up to smoke cigarettes, then subconsciously you feel left out and thus […]
