Some people see themselves as the smokers that are going to get away with it. They expect to be in the percentage of the population that can smoke for the rest of their very long lives with no adverse effects on their health. They still have the hope that a “Good for you” cigarette will be invented, so they can just switch brands.
Do we consider ourselves to be immortal sometimes? How about when we drive and talk on the phone, or text and drive, does that only cause other people to get into car accidents?
The real answer is simple:
WE DO NOT EXPECT TO GET CAUGHT. We are too smart for that.
“Not me, everyone else is at risk to get cancer from smoking.”
Many people who are seeking help to quit smoking with hypnosis have tried other ways unsuccessfully. They really do not want to quit smoking. Are you here because you have to? Most people hate to HAVE to do anything; most of our actions are based on WANT.
So, how to want to quit smoking? Well, if you have to, it means to me that Smoking is NO longer SAFE for you. Hypnotherapy for smoking cessation is the way to get this message through to your subconscious mind. When your subconscious realizes that smoking is not safe anymore, your defense mechanism will naturally help you WANT to change this harmful behavior.
Here are some helpful questions to ask yourself before going for hypnosis for smoking cessation:
- How motivated I am to quit smoking?
- How many cigarettes a day do you know would be more than enough?
- What triggers smoking?
- How will your life change when you quit?
- Is weight gain a concern?
