Michael Douglas Cancer Linked To Smoking?

Tuesday, August 17th, 2010

It’s a sad day for family and fans of Michael Douglas. He has been diagnosed with throat cancer and is starting on a regimen of chemotherapy and radiation treatments. One report I heard described this process as a way to shrink the tumor lodged in his throat. The doctor claimed that the course of the protocol might be indicative of the large size of the tumor which might make it inoperable at this time.

This is a shame. Michael Douglas has been responsible for supplying us with hours of fine entertainment. There have been reports on how Michael and his wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones have struggled with trying to stop smoking for quite some time. I wonder if they ever used hypnosis to quit smoking.

The truth is that nobody has to smoke. If you are determined, and want to quit, you can stop smoking with hypnosis. Most smokers quit smoking after the first session. And those who don’t will quit in one or a few follow up sessions. The most difficult cases will be able to quit smoking with hypnosis for smoking, as long as they stay with the process long enough. Because the most difficult cases require additional training. Surely if you are one of those difficult cases, don’t you think working on your problem long enough is worth it?

I know the problems that busy people have with deciding to devote the proper amount of time to their problem. I’ve worked with quite a few high profile and busy smokers with similar careers as Michael Douglas. And it always comes down to what is their priority at this time. Is it their desire to spend their time in the pursuit of their career now? Or is it their desire to extend their career by taking the time to use hypnosis to quit smoking now? If you don’t decide to spend the time now, you might be forced to put your life on hold by a medical intervention.

Post your prayers and good wishes for Michael’s speedy recovery below:

The Reason You Smoke and Help Quitting Smoking

Saturday, July 10th, 2010

There are so many different types of smokers out there. So you might think that there must be many different ways to help quitting smoking. Some people tell me that they smoke because it relaxes them. Some say they smoke because they are bored, some say they smoke out of habit. But none of these reasons are the real reason as to why you began to smoke in the first place.

The reason that smokers begin to smoke is because they have an instinctual need to fit in. They need to be a part of the group. This is part of our primal programming. You have no control over it. You either follow what your programming is or you will feel an intense visceral feeling that something is wrong. You are connected to these instincts so strongly that you really have no way to control your actions. Unless you learn what their purpose is and how to sidestep the process entirely.

You probably can recall what was going on during your first cigarette. You were probably a teenager. Well, if you’ve been around teenagers lately you know that that age can be considered a form of mental illness. All kidding aside, that’s an age of many physical changes that affect our mental chemistry. So we don’t really know entirely what’s happening. There’s a lot of risk taking involved, and a feeling of immortality and invincibility.

So now we combine that with other things that might be going on around you as a teen and get a sense of what was happening at the time. Because it’s the combination of your instincts that come together in a unique way at a special time that makes it OK for you to do something that you really did know was the wrong thing to do. At that age you might have been off at school. Disconnected from the familiarity of family and home. And you were stretching your wings looking to soar.

Some friends around you probably were smoking. Maybe they did it because someone told them it was cool, or the “hip” thing to do. Maybe you had to pull an all nighter and needed something to keep you up and a friend suggested a cigarette. Underneath all of that was an intense desire to fit in. To be included in a friendly and supportive group of people. You were outmatched by your genetic predisposition to be part of the herd, and wanting to be grown up.

So you learned how to smoke. And it took some time. Nobody gets it right the very first time. That’s because your body actually doesn’t like smoke. It’s an irritant. All living organisms avoid smoke and fire. And we’re no different. So you actually had to work at it to become a smoker. And work you did. After a short battle between the smoker in you and the nonsmoker in you, the smoker won out. And congratulations! You became a smoker.

If you check what’s going on around you, you probably know that smoking is no longer the cool and “hip” thing to do. In fact smokers these days are ostracized. They are forced to go outside to smoke. They are looked down upon as a lesser citizen these days. I don’t feel that way, but I’m told by them that they do. So in reality smoking is no longer serving the purpose that was originally intended. You no longer fit in as a smoker. In fact if you want to fit in, and that’s still part of your primal programming, you need to become a nonsmoker. And if you are having difficulty you can get help quitting smoking.

Once your inner mind understands this as fully as it once understood your need to fit in as a smoker, you will be well on your way to freeing yourself of this nasty habit. There are several ways of doing that. There is some talk therapy, there is bio feedback training, and there is hypnosis training. Of the three, hypnosis to quit smoking is recognized as one of the fastest ways of stopping smoking. It’s a matter of getting to your subconscious mind and having it accept the truth about what it takes to follow your instincts to be part of the group.

There are also other quitting smoking side effects that can be used to convince your subconscious mind that it’s the right thing to do. Using hypnosis to quit smoking, you can quickly program your mind to respond in a much healthier way. So for the best help quitting smoking you can call a hypnotist at 212 223-1832 and find out whether you are a good candidate for change. The smarter you are the more responsive to hypnosis you will be.

Advantages of Using Hypnosis Help Quit Smoking

Thursday, July 1st, 2010

Remember what it was like to get out of bed, excited to get started on the adventures of living that lay before you. Remember what it was like to get out of bed filled with the energy that you received from your restful night’s sleep. If you’re having difficulty recalling those valuable times it’s probably because you’ve been smoking cigarettes too long. And if you’re reading this post you’re probably smart enough to know that it’s time for a change. Change with hypnosis to quit smoking can happen quickly and easily so read through all the words in this post to get the answers you’re looking for.

Maybe you are having difficulty with quitting smoking. Don’t worry. You have something going for you that other smokers don’t. You actually have a sincere desire to quit. I know that to be true of you.
How do I know? Because if you tried to quit and failed, and you’re on this website, that means you are still looking for a way to help you quit smoking for good. You haven’t given up. And I applaud you and congratulate you on your perseverance. And perseverance in this case is a good quality. But it didn’t always help you.

Perseverance is what helped you become a smoker. That’s right. Go back to that first time that you smoked your very first cigarette. How did you body respond? If you’re like the rest of us, you coughed, you got dizzy, you got nauseous. It wasn’t like your first time having some candy, now was it?

No. But something inside you decided that smoking was something you needed to learn to do. And that’s where your perseverance came in. You continued to put that cigarette into your mouth and continued practicing smoking until you actually became a smoker, thanks to your perseverance. Now we know that was a mistake. Let’s not harp on that past mistake. Mistakes happen all the time. It’s important not to make the same mistake over and over again. So we want to learn from our mistakes and our successes.

The point is you had to work at becoming a smoker. And now you want to become a non smoker and that quality that you have, that perseverance will serve you well. Do not stop in your quest to become a non smoker. Use every tool available to you to reach your goal of becoming a on smoker.

Hypnosis to quit smoking is one of the most powerful tools you can use to help you become a nonsmoker. You can use your perseverance along with the proper mental programing to change your attitude, behaviors, and habits so that you can more easily be that nonsmoker that you dream about.

With hypnosis to quit smoking you use the nature of how your mind works to program it to become a different person with new habits. And you can start from wherever you are. Depending on where you are in the evolution of nonsmoker > smoker > nonsmoker. If you can’t see yourself without a cigarette in your hand or mouth, than you would first use some mental rehearsal and visualization self hypnosis to practice forming the picture of you as a non smoker. If you can see yourself as a nonsmoker, than start with those ties that you always think about cigarettes. Like first thing in the morning, or after a meal, or after sex. You begin where you are and then never give up, never give up, never give up.

Smoking Cessation Hypnosis-Does a Smoking Hypnotist Stop You From Smoking?

Friday, July 17th, 2009

There has been much in the news about how to stop smoking. Top on the list of the most effective stop smoking modalities is going to see a smoking hypnotist.  And the question comes up, does a hypnotist stop you from smoking cigarettes?

First let’s address what hypnosis is and isn’t.  Hypnosis is a naturally occurring state of increased suggestibility where we humans are more receptive to accepting information.  This information can be from ourselves and from others as well.  This state is accessed quite a number of times each day without our willful intent of achieving this trance.  It is not a state where we are bound to follow any suggestion that comes our way.  It is not a state where we become powerless and become subjugated to the will of others.  So there is nothing that you need to fear of your naturally occurring hypnotic trance state, even when guided there by your hypnotist.

So now we know that we can easily go into trance, in fact we enter this state daily without any help.  So what about smoking cessation hypnosis, will the hypnotist make you stop smoking?  Well the short answer to that is, yes, and no.  You will stop smoking cigarettes when you visit a smoking hypnotist but the hypnotist will not make you stop smoking.  The hypnotist will be able to change the way you respond to cigarettes.  And you will be the one who makes you stop smoking.

Think about this for a moment.  There are plenty of things that you allow yourself to do.  Some of these things are similar to what others around you do as well.  It could be as simple as allowing yourself to eat certain foods, and removing other foods as even a consideration of food choices.

In certain cultures it’s more acceptable to eat certain foods than others.  You see this all around you with the different choices of ethnic food restaurants around your area.  Chinese food is different from Mexican food and that is different from Thai food, or Italian food, right?   Sometimes the first time we are presented with a food that is foreign to us, we reject the food because it’s unfamiliar.  Sometimes it’s culturally unacceptable to eat.  Some cultures eat dog while in the western cultures the thought of eating your pet would turn your stomach.

And that’s what changing perceptions is all about.  If every time you were presented with the choice of a cigarette, when your perceptions had changed by working with a hypnotist, your response would be as if it was some kind of foreign substance.  Not even something that you would consider inputting into your body.  And when that happens, you become familiar with being a non smoker.  Someone who no longer associates smoking with the normal everyday activities that you participate in.

This becomes a very powerful shift in your perceptions that will help you to become a non smoker for the rest of your life.  And that’s why when you visit a smoking hypnotist for a smoking cessation hypnosis session you are able to leave the office becoming a non smoker very rapidly and without withdrawal of any kind.  Allowing you the opportunity to then re-build the habits of a non smoker.

Smoking Cessation Hypnosis-What Does It Cost To Use A Smoking Hypnotist?

Monday, July 13th, 2009

People are always interested in how much it costs to see a smoking hypnotist to help them to stop smoking cigarettes.  And in these times more than any other people are concerned with the cost of any stop smoking program.  It usually makes me smile when I hear someone ask that question, because it often means that they are ready to spend some money to help them solve their problem, and that’s what I’m here for.

One of the primary things that brings a smoker to my office is the desire to stop smoking because they are tired of being a slave to a behavior that is no longer giving them any benefit.  They are doing something that they are not in control of.  It is also costing them a substantial amount of money every day, week, month and year that they continue to smoke, not to mention how much they have already spent on cigarettes.  And the costs don’t end with the dollars and cents outlay for cigarettes.

There are real costs associated with the increased financial burden placed on the smoker and their families because of increased colds, and viruses contracted meaning lost work days, higher medical bills, higher insurance costs.  There are even places that won’t allow you to rent places to live or stay if you are a smoker.  (This has spoiled quite a few people’s retirement plans).

So when you ask what it costs for smoking cessation hypnosis, it’s wise to compare it to what it costs to continue to smoke.  The good news is that it shouldn’t cost more than what you already spend on cigarettes for the next few weeks.  And since you still have quite a few years of life left in you, you’ll probably be saving enough each year to take a nice vacation, upgrade to a nicer car, or even be able to take in more movies or shows each month.  I’m happy to report that those few people (10% of the population reportedly make buying decisions on price alone) usually self select as people who don’t respond well to this stop smoking process.

Stopping smoking is about investing in your health and well being.  It’s a great feeling to be back in control of the things you do.  You already know what you’re willing to spend to continue making yourself unhealthy, the question is what are you willing to invest in making yourself well and in control?  Scheduling a session with a smoking hypnotist now is a smart investment to make.
