Smoking Cigarettes makes you an Outcast

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.
Now days, the pressures of society are to be fit and healthy and smoking does not fit into this model.

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 […]

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. […]

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.
I had a woman who came to see me that said that she wanted to quit smoking cigarettes because it made her look older and that she did not like the control that cigarettes and smoking had over her. 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 […]

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 […]

You Know You Need to Quit Smoking, But Do You Want To?

I had a client recently who came to me to quit smoking. He had been smoking for 50 years and was smoking 40 to 50 cigarettes a day.
When I asked him if he thought that smoking cigarettes controlled him he replied, no. This really puzzled me because he was spending hours and hours every day smoking.
So, then I asked him: if cigarettes don’t control you, what do you reckon is stopping you from quitting smoking?  Easy, He replied,  because I didn’t want to.

Two things immediately came to mind when he said this:

Quitting is a Choice

1. How could he […]
