Hypnotherapy for Smoking
During my work with smokers, I find many people say to me “that voice within me, that wants to keep me a smoker is so strong. I know I want to give up and I start out so well, but after a few weeks, that voice of temptation starts to shout louder and louder and I end up giving in to it, feeling disappointed and frustrated.”
That voice comes from your smoking identity, that voice is the voice that put you on the path of smoking in the first place. When you smoked that first cigarette, it was disgusting, you coughed and choked, it tasted awful, it may have given you a headache or even made you feel sick, your body recognised the poison you were inputting into it.
But that voice spoke up, you wanted to be a smoker, to be part of the ‘in crowd’, to be cool, to be like your friends or the people you admired, you wanted to be a rebel, to be grown up and you wanted these things at all costs.
So you managed to switch off your poison receptors, through the strength of this voice and this continues to rest within your subconscious beliefs and identities. This voice had to become so powerful, that it changed your perception of smoking, shutting down your natural senses and ignoring all the health issues.
Through hypnosis you are able to reset these self saboutaging beliefs and allow your new preference to be a non smoker, to have the stonger motivation and identity.
Many people put off the day when they will become a non smoker, fearing the change, but I would say to you that if you aren’t intending to be a smoker all your life, then why put off that day? The only time that exists is now, and whether you stop smoking ‘now’, or when at a ‘now’ in the future, ‘now’ is always ‘now’….
