Allen Carr author of Easy Way Stop Smoking Book Used Hypnosis To Quit Smoking

Thursday, June 17th, 2010

This is something that most people don’t know. And even though he wrote about it in his book very few people understand or remember. Allen Carr, who wrote the book The Easy Way to Stop Smoking went to see a hypnotist to stop smoking cigarettes.

Yep, you read that right! Alan Carr used stop smoking hypnosis performed by a stop smoking hypnotist to get him off of a 100 cigarette per day habit. [edited]

Update: I’ve been contacted by the Allen Carr organization, or someone purporting to be from Allen Carr organization in London at 8:59 AM EDT on June 21, 2010, claiming that I disparaged the name of Allen Carr. This gentleman, (who refused to identify himself, even though I asked his name 3 times), mentioned he was giving me the chance to do something about what I wrote before he turned the matter over to their attorneys in New York. So, not wanting to disparage Allen Carr which was never my intention, and not wanting to court disaster with a lawsuit I am removing the rest of this post that has to do with Allen Carr and what I think are his views of hypnosis.

Now I must add that being sued by the Allen Carr organization might turn out to be a publicity gold mine for me, but that would certainly be a crap shoot, now wouldn’t it? I mean, press releases about it would be all over the internet. Appearances on the Regis show, Ellen Degenerous, maybe even Oprah! But I digress.

I want to add that this bloke from across the pond mentioned that Allen Carr, “helped millions of people” and “never did a bad thing in his life.” So my interpretation and views of the words that Allen Carr wrote in his book are being edited out of this post.

If you want to know exactly what I said about Allen Carr, you’ll just have to fill out the form below and you’ll get it sent to you along with my ebook on using self hypnosis to quit smoking.

Hypnosis To Quit Smoking, Or Cold Turkey Stop Smoking

Friday, March 19th, 2010

A colleague of mine reported a study that involved thousands of smokers who either quit smoking cold turkey, or used a gradual method to stop smoking.  The study reported that there was no difference in the success of either of these methods, abrupt “cold turkey” quit smoking, or gradual weaning off of cigarettes to stop smoking.

In my own opinion, I don’t believe there is any such thing as quitting “cold turkey”.
There is no quitting, or changing of any habituation without the use of hypnosis.  Either
learned through self discovery, or learned through a professional, in one on one, or group situations.  Period.  The myth that people can change without any help or knowledge of how
to properly use their mind to create change is just that…a myth.

Some people stumble upon the process that helps them change, others use the help of a
professional.  But in any case, these studies distort the very nature of creating change, and that is all about learning how to use your mind correctly for the outcome that you want.

In both of these cases, the frame was set out the beginning, as to whether the smoker wanted to and beleived they could stop abruptly, or they believed they needed to wean themselves off of cigarettes.  What was not at all discussed or studied was how they went about quitting.  The mental strategies that each individual uses is the only determinant of success or failure with changing any habit.

You can learn how to use your mind effectively on your own, or you can pay someone to show and guide you through the process.  When you go visit a hypnotist that is expert at helping you change your habits, something like stopping smoking becomes a quick and easy process to eliminate.

If you want to stop smoking and you are serious about it, then there is no better way to get it done, than by visiting a stop smoking hypnotist.

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 Hypnotist-How Does Hypnosis To Quit Smoking Work?

Saturday, July 11th, 2009

Hypnosis has been helping people heal and make changes for hundreds of years. Anton Mesmer popularized a trance method for healing back in 1774, but human beings have been going into hypnotic trance and using it effectively in a natural way ever since there was thinking and rational behavior. Hypnotic trance is a naturally occurring experience that a smoking hypnotist will use to help a smoker become a non smoker.

Becoming a non smoker is easier than most people make it out to be. After all, smoking is not second nature to us and we weren’t born to smoke. In fact smoke in any form is an irritant and being around smoke causes an immediate fight of flight response. We smokers had to work real hard to learn how to smoke. It’s not quitting smoking that’s hard but what’s hard is the process of changing one habit for another. It’s always easier to continue doing what we’re used to than to change to something that has become unfamiliar.

Now when you go to see a smoking hypnotist for smoking cessation hypnosis they will first get you comfortable going into a good trance state. A good hypnotist, that is well trained should be able to do this in about 5 minutes. While in hypnosis, you will become more suggestible. This just means that you are more accepting to new ideas, new behaviors, and new experiences. A well trained and experienced hypnotist will also have given you all the info that you need before hand so that you will be ready and able to accept the suggestions for being a non smoker.

Once these suggestions of being a non smoker are accepted by your subconscious there is a perception shift. You put an end to being a smoker, and you have become a non smoker and respond in your world as a non smoker would. So that every time you see someone else smoking you no longer feel like you’re missing out on something. You won’t be depriving yourself of anything because cigarettes are no longer something that you want. You become a non smoker because that is how you identify yourself to be.

This is a very quick process. In most cases all that is necessary is one or two sessions. It is important to have a special support system in place so that you don’t slip up and go back to smoking. This is critical because you don’t want to go back to smoking. I think in this day and age with all the negatives surrounding smoking and smokers, once you stop, it’s unlikely you will slip back into the old way again.

So now it’s time to stop reading about smoking hypnosis and get some training in self hypnosis or visit a hypnotist so that you can become a non smoker for the rest of your life. Even if you have failed before when you used other techniques to quit smoking you’ll be able to stop with the help of hypnosis. Even if you failed before using hypnotherapy to stop smoking you will still be able to stop smoking using advanced hypnotic techniques. No one needs to smoke cigarettes. We need to breath fresh air and that is what our bodies crave. Give yourself the gift of good health and long life by becoming a non smoker.
