The average person tries to quit smoking between four to six times before they beat the addiction. If you have tried gum, patches, prescriptions or willpower alone without success, make your final attempt successful with stop smoking hypnosis.
Of all of the ways to quit smoking, hypnosis is literally the most trouble-free and has the most successful track record. If you are willing to consistently watch and listen to DVDs and CDs specifically created to curb your cravings to smoke, then quit smoking hypnosis will work for you.
Many smokers think that they are unable to quit smoking because of their nicotine addiction, but that simply is not true. Medical experts agree that after seven to ten days - even as soon as three days - all nicotine has been eliminated from the body, which leaves smokers to focus on the more difficult and far reaching psychological and emotional addiction to smoking cigarettes.
There are countless ways to quit smoking, but just one method can address both the cravings and the emotional compulsion: quit smoking hypnosis. Many people who want to quit still end up asking themselves, "Why can't I simply stop smoking?"
The answer is clear to hypnotherapists. The part of you that won't let you quit smoking is your unconscious. You can't change your unconscious mind by force of will or with a prescription, patch or gum. You need the right kind of help.
To quit smoking, support is imperative, but many people do not understand that the best support comes from within their own unconscious. Hypnosis is the most effective technique to ensure that your entire psyche is working to help you stop smoking. That's because hypnosis provides a persuasive method of communicating with your unconscious mind.
Quit smoking hypnosis helps you get rid of the urge to smoke by removing the impulse to light up. When the urge and compulsion to smoke are removed, quitting becomes painless choice that you can make without difficulty. The best stop smoking hypnosis programs are successful because they address the most powerful elements of the smoking addiction.
The first part of an effective stop smoking hypnosis program addresses the craving to smoke for pleasure and relaxation. This precedent was actually established when you were a baby. Likely, when you were cranky, your parents put a bottle in your mouth. Then your attention got diverted; you relaxed and likely went to sleep. Smokers get the same calming effect from a cigarette.
With quit smoking hypnosis, the unconscious is reprogrammed to receive pleasure and relaxation by automatically replacing stress-inducing thoughts with calming thoughts instead, all via the use of the very same triggers that previously made you anxious. This makes the tension almost magically disappear. In addition, the very essence of hypnosis is relaxation. So by listening to a soothing hypnotherapy CD daily, stress levels will quickly fade.
The second part of an effective stop smoking hypnosis program will help you tackle the habituation, or the "Habit." Habituation occurs when the unconscious forms an association between smoking and other behaviors, such as driving or watching television. Perhaps the second that you turn on the TV you are fighting with a craving to smoke.
An effective stop smoking hypnosis CD or DVD will reprogram your unconscious associations so that driving, for example, actually makes you want to REJECT smoking! This is known as, no pun intended, extinguishing a conditioned response.
Here is a news flash! The physical nicotine addiction is only about ten percent of the addiction. Ninety percent of the addiction to cigarettes is comprised of the emotional and mental components that we've discussed so far. And as stated earlier in this article, medical professionals maintain that the body is clear of nicotine in as little as three days.
People who use Neuro-Linguistic Programming and quit smoking hypnosis CDs and DVDs recognize that when their smoking associations and reliance on cigarettes to unwind have undergone reprogramming, the physical addiction is in fact such a diminutive part of their smoking habit, that it has no effect on their capability to quit smoking without suffering from withdrawal.
Now, I must tell you that despite the unparalleled success that clients have had with stop smoking hypnosis and NLP CDs and DVDs, you must hold the desire to quit smoking prior to undertaking a program. And as well as the desire to stop smoking, you must make an honest decision to quit. That means that you must be ready and willing to throw your cigarettes away.
Hypnosis CDs and DVDs cannot be used to force you to do something you don't desire to do, so no program can coerce you to stop smoking. But if you have the desire to quit smoking, and you make a decision to quit smoking, hypnosis will help you to remain relaxed and not experience tension, cravings, or withdrawal symptoms. Let hypnosis and NLP give you the support you need.
