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.

What is a Skeptical Hypnotist?

Wednesday, May 14th, 2008

I am by nature somewhat skeptical. I usually don’t take things at face value. In order for me to do so, the info probably has to be coming from a reliable source. That is the nature of my skepticism.

So, when I went to my very first hypnosis training, I went with an open mind, but I needed to get some kind of information that would allow me to understand what hypnosis was. I needed to experience hypnotic trance for myself, and find out what it was all about.

I was quite amazed at that first training. The things I witnessed went far past what I was expecting. I saw a grown medical doctor spontaneously act like a 5 year old child. I saw sad dull exteriors become shining smiling faces. I saw smokers become non smokers and food cravings disappear. I saw the power of hypnosis in action.

Skepticism will not keep you from being hypnotized, nor will it prevent you from getting the results you see a hypnotist for. It might slow down the process, just a little bit. It shouldn’t even extend the length of your first hypnotic session. All you really need is a sincere desire to change. If you want to be a non smoker, then you need to have a sincere desire to stop smoking. And who wouldn’t want to stop smoking these days? If you want to lose weight, you only need a sincere desire to lose weight.

Follow my directions and I’ll lead you there.
