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.

Hypnosis for Weight Loss-Changing Habits

Hypnosis for weight loss?

Is it possible to use hypnosis to lose weight?

Absolutely yes

How would you use hypnosis for weight loss?

In my office in NYC I use Hypnosis to help people take back control over their habits and behaviors. I help them eliminate old unhealthy habits by teaching them how to replace those old habits with new healthier behaviors and then I work with them so that these new behaviors then become their conditioned habitual responses. And when this takes place losing weight becomes the natural response to healthier behaviors

You see, it is our habits, our unthinking, unconscious patterns, that get us into the most trouble. If we condition ourselves to walk into our home everyday at the end of the workday, and drop our packages on the floor, and run into the kitchen for a “treat” of some kind of non-essential food (unhealthy food) and then plop ourselves on the couch in front of the TV, then every day we will feel compelled to do this same unhealthy activity. In fact, if we omit this activity from our normal everyday list of things to do, we will feel out of sorts. We will feel off balance. Things will not seem right. If we complete our day of work with a trip to the gym, or the yoga class, or the meditation circle, we can create this same kind of conditioned response with a healthier behavior. And when we don’t follow through with this new healthier behavior, we will get those same feelings of being out of sorts, off balance, or not feeling right. And those uncomfortable feelings will propel us to stay on track with a healthier behavior rather than an unhealthy behavior.

How can hypnosis help me with developing good habits?

Hypnotic trance is a state where we become more suggestible. We tend to believe and accept whatever suggestions are placed into the subconscious mind when we are in hypnotic trance. In my office, I suggest to my clients that they will start to behave differently. I suggest that they will start to behave in the way that they have agreed to behave during our brief pre-session interview. I link the old behaviors to an extremely unpleasant feeling or experience so they will be motivated to stop doing that unhealthy behavior. Then I have my clients practice the new behavior and link it to an extremely pleasant feeling or experience so they are motivated to follow through with the new healthier behavior.

Why does this hypnosis process work?

Now the reason this works, is that we tend to move away from things that feel bad and move toward things that make us feel good. You’ve heard of the metaphor of the donkey being coaxed in two ways. With a carrot and a stick. Basically this is providing my clients with their own carrot and stick. Nudging them along a path that will lead them to the healthier choices that are required for them to lower their current weight and keep them able to maintain that weight for as long as they want to maintain that healthy lifestyle. This is a lifestyle change, not a remedial quick fix like a short term diet that, because it is so restrictive, is impossible to maintain. When you change your lifestyle and it becomes habitual, its becomes as easy as brushing your teeth every morning, or washing your hands at specific times. And because habits are so very powerful, we make them our powerful allies in our program of weight loss.

In Summary

This then becomes one of the very powerful ways that hypnosis is effective at helping my clients become thinner, healthier and happier. Hypnosis is also a very pleasant experience for people so they have fun, and feel extremely relaxed and more capable. Just a by product of this rewarding way of making changes permanently.
