Quit Smoking Hypnosis and What to Expect After the Session

When it comes to quit smoking hypnosis, most smokers want to know: What will I feel like when the session is over.

Will I Still Have Cravings?

The answer is that there are no cravings with Quit Smoking Hypnosis. For most people, hypnosis will have the” I-was-never-a-smoker” effect. They don’t think about cigarettes and will go about their daily lives as if cigarettes do not exist. There are no cravings or withdrawals especially if they have followed directions prior to their session (see below).

Some people will have the occasional fleeting thought about cigarettes, but it will disappear as quickly as it came. The rest of the time they will feel great and have no cravings.

Some people have the potential to fall back into old associations, meaning that the things they used to associate smoking with—drinking coffee, socializing, stress etc.—may cause them to have thoughts about smoking on occasion. This is easily handled as long as the person remembers to just say no to those thoughts, drink water, breathe deeply and do something they enjoy as those thoughts will pass.

What Happens if I Start Smoking Again?

On very rare occasions, a person may struggle with smoking cravings and thoughts after their session—but this is usually because they didn’t really want to quit smoking in the first place.  The key to a successful quit smoking hypnosis session is truly wanting to be there and truly wanting to quit smoking. So people who are forced or cajoled into a quit smoking session with hypnosis—often by caring friends and loving family—tend not to have the best results until THEY make the decision to quit on their own. It was mentioned that it is extremely rare for this to happen as the therapist likes to talk to the person before their session to ensure there is a real WANT to stop smoking.

Following Directions

Another reason why people may struggle after their session is lack of preparation.  Information is sent out including the following:-

  • A two track audio – either on CD or online
  • A number of forms
    • Confidential Information
    • Reasons and  Benefits to becoming a non smoker
    • Triggers or any time they smoke
    • Ideas to Replace Cigarettes
    • Pre Session Action Plan
  • Confirmation Letter with instructions and the address. On this letter clients are asked to bring water and fruit and this is explained to them during their session.

So it is important the forms are filled in by them and not a member of the family. It is important to listen to the audio with the two tracks.

So if this isn’t completed then it is an indication people are not committed to the process.  They have to be responsible for their own lives because the hypnosis works however the clients has to also work with it.

What Guarantee do I Have?

Quit smoking hypnosis is so successful that Life Coach to Quit Smoking offers a Lifetime Guarantee to people so if they ever fall back into their old habit of smoking then they can come back for a free follow up session.

Note:  The reality is that when people really want to stop smoking they are non smokers at the end of their session.  It is only if they start smoking again that they need to come back.

The key to quit smoking hypnosis success, however, is truly wanting to quit smoking—truly wanting to make a change. Hypnosis is all about the power of the mind. If the person’s mind isn’t in the right place—that is, if their mind doesn’t agree with the idea of quitting smoking—then it will be difficult for them.

Remember: Change is something that has to come from within; change has to be something they truly want.  So if they really want to quit smoking, then quit smoking hypnosis will work for everyone. Some people say that for them, it was like magic. However it is the power of the subconscious mind and the WANT.

Are you ready to quit smoking and are ready to Book Your Appointment? Then go right ahead and once you have made that commitment you will already commence feeling the joy of making the decision.

Is it Difficult to Quit Smoking?

This habit was commonly commenced during teenage years – a bit of fun or peer pressure. However after a short or even a long while people really want to quit, especially in today’s society where it is such an anti-social behavior.

How difficult is it to quit smoking?

For the average smoker the answer will most probably be – nearly impossible!  Giving up smoking is not easy and it is made more difficult when we are lead to believe that smoking is an addiction.  Of course we all have our own ideas and beliefs around addictions.

People with an addiction do not have control over what they are doing, taking or using. Their addiction controls them and they may reach a point at which it is harmful or even dangerous.

What is an addiction?

Addiction is a complex condition, a brain disease that is manifested by compulsive substance use despite harmful consequence. People with addiction (severe substance use disorder) have an intense focus on using a certain substance(s), such as alcohol or drugs, to the point that it takes over their life. They keep using alcohol or a drug even when they know it will causes problems. Yet a number of effective treatments are available and people can recover from addiction and lead normal, productive lives

People with a substance use disorder have distorted thinking, behavior and body functions. Changes in the brain’s wiring are what cause people to have intense cravings for the drug and make it hard to stop using the drug. Brain imaging studies show changes in the areas of the brain that relate to judgment, decision making, learning, memory and behavior control. (Psychiatry.org)

People with an addiction do not have control over what they are doing, whether they are consuming something or a doing a particular behavior.  People use drugs or alcohol to escape, relax, or to reward themselves.

Most Common Form of Addiction

Drugs are the most common form of addiction followed closely, according to the authorities, smoking!  However research is showing, that smoking is also a very powerful habit.  This is made more convincing when we understand how successful hypnosis is in assisting people to stop smoking.

Many people have never heard of using hypnosis to stop smoking.  So when they realise there are other options such as hypnosis to quit smoking, they are delighted.  They are even more delighted at the end of their quit smoking session to find they are non smokers.

So watch the video and if it is time for you to stop smoking then go ahead and Make your Booking.

Why is it so Hard to Stop Smoking?

I am sure many smokers have asked themselves or their doctor this question.  People often say they were able to stop Marijuana easily but they cannot stop smoking. Which raises the question, is it really an addiction or a very powerful habit? Most people have managed to stop smoking briefly such as air flights or hospitalisation. So why is it so hard to stop smoking permanently?

Is Smoking a Habit?

Most people agree smoking is a powerful habit. Our unconscious mind is like a sponge taking in information, positive or negative. How often do you hear or see information that says smoking is an addiction, such as media, articles, images or even self talk. This can be so powerful and convincing we start to believe it. When people go cold turkey, this message becomes more convincing as they feel the side effects of stopping.

So what can you do?

Understand that smoking is a habit. Cigarettes also contain sugar and we know that sugar is very addictive.  So be prepared with fruit or some other healthy option to replace the sugar. Water is going to be very important too, as smoking dehydrates the body. As a non smoker your body is going to be craving water, food and sugar.

Will I Gain Weight?

Weight gain could be an outcome so eat healthy to avoid this. The wonderful part of our body is that the energy kicks in around Day 4. So eating healthy and picking up the exercises will be a huge help to maintaining weight.  The other point to mention is once you become a non smoker you will be very hungry so be prepared with healthy food. Of course there are many other tips that will help. So do check out the other articles on this site.

Impact of Smoking on Breathing

Most people really enjoy a cigarette after a meal.  Why? Deep breathing can greatly assist in calming down your body and mind. It’s re-energizing and soothing, but did you know that it also aids in digestion?

So why is Deep Breathing Important When Quitting?

A person usually takes approximately 5 deep breaths with each cigarette they smoke. If they smoke 15 cigarettes a day, that is 75 deep breaths a day. People often stop taking those deep breaths as non smokers. As non smokers it is important to fill the lungs and give them a chance to recover from the onslaught of toxins and chemicals that have been going into their lungs, sometimes for years.

Regular Health Checks

Some people become alarmed as they cough up more phlegm over the first couple of weeks of stopping smoking. This usually subsides and if there is a concern then they need to contact their doctor. So the more deep breaths, the quicker the lungs will recover.

Plain Packaging: Is It Working?

Over the years, anti-smoking initiatives have tried numerous approaches to keeping cigarettes out of the hands of smokers. But Big Tobacco has always stood in the way, marketing their brands as cool and rewarding, even when they lead to serious health complications and death. However, the fight against Big Tobacco took an interesting turn when Australia became the first country to employ what is known as plain cigarette packaging in December 2012. But, the vital question at hand is still: will plain packaging work?

Plain packaging means that all branding is removed from cigarette packages. No colours, no logos, no images, no nothing from the tobacco company distributing the cigarettes. Instead, the packages are only printed with the brand name in a small, standardized size and then massive pictures of people suffering the health drawbacks of smoking are plastered across the package in an almost macabre manner. Furthermore, health warnings and the toxic ingredients are included in the packaging.

Pre-implementation research—such as that conducted by Cancer Council Australia—has shown that smokers generally have a negative response to plain packaged cigarettes and thus are less likely to buy them. But, as Craig Glasby of the Alliance of Australian Retailers points out, “plain packaging hasn’t had any impact on my customers who are smokers and there’s been no decline in my sales since its introduction”. Still, the verdict is far from in; plain packaging hasn’t been on the market long enough for researchers to understand its true effect on the smoking economy.

While plain packaging is a great idea—a definite step in the right direction—it still doesn’t get to the heart of the matter: that smoking is a psychosocial habit that can only be broken through the power of the mind and will. Packaging can help smokers see that smoking is dangerous, but it can’t help them change their attitudes and beliefs towards cigarettes so that they are no longer dependent on them. Only a method like quit smoking hypnosis can help smokers achieve that outcome—so if you are a smoker, pay attention to the health warnings on plain packaged cigarettes as incentive to give quit smoking hypnosis a try.

Plain packaging won’t make you quit smoking—only you have the power to make yourself smoke-free for good! If you want to find out more about how to quit smoking in as little as 60 minutes, then visit us on Facebook and Twitter and get involved in the discussion.
