Does Smoking Impact Your Pet?

Smoking is a fatal habit that not only puts your life in jeopardy, but the lives of others around you as well. You have probably heard of the term second-hand smoke and are likely aware that it negatively affects people, but did you know that it can also affect your pets?

Protect your pets from smoke

Research demonstrates that pets are equally as affected by second-hand smoke as humans. Dogs, cats, bids guinea pigs or your niece and nephew-tobacco toxins do not discriminate when it comes to the human animal divide.

Animals exposed to cigarette smoke are at a high risk for developing respiratory illnesses and cancer. Like humans, animals exposed to second-hand smoke can potentially develop the following medical conditions:

  1. Lymphoma
  2. Lung cancer
  3. Asthma
  4. Nasal cancer
  5. Nervous system disorders

In addition to the dangers of second-hand smoke, medical researchers at Harvard University were able to establish a third category of tobacco toxin transmission vis-à-vis animals and humans: third-hand smoke. Third-hand smoke is passed on to animals by smokers and non-smokers who have been exposed to cigarettes. Your nose always identifies third-hand smoke-think about that “smoker smell” that we have all had waft into our nostrils at one point or another. That is third hand smoke. Third-hand smoke is comprised of the poisonous particles and gases that remain on clothes, bags, hair and other materials touched by tobacco smoke. These poisons are then passed on to pets; young children are also particularly vulnerable to their toxins as well.

Another reason second-hand and third-hand smoke are particularly dangerous to pets is because they don’t get the chance to be mobile and in fresh air as much. Good dog owners walk their dogs a lot and let them out in the yard, but not all dog owners do. Most cats never leave the house and other inside pets are in the same boat. Thus, pets can be more entrenched in the toxins with little chance of escape.

If you are a smoker, then smoking cessation should be a top priority for your own health and the health of the friends and family that you love and care about. However, pets can provide you with the extra incentive to kick your tobacco habit for good. Most people don’t think that their cigarette smoking is bad for the dog or cat, but it is. Why continue with a habit that harms the creatures you have otherwise sworn to protect? Take the time to learn more about how to become tobacco free, by way of hypnotherapy smoking cessation for example, and increase the health and vitality of yourself and everyone around you.

Is Smoking a Crutch for you?

It wasn’t so long ago that people looked on smoking as a socially acceptable behaviour.  Of course these days smokers or often looked down upon and made to feel uncomfortable because they smoke.

People use Smoking as a Crutch

It is becoming more prevalent for people wanting to quit smoking to have emotional issues where the cigarette has been used as a crutch.  So removing that crutch reduces the long term success for the person quitting, no matter what method has been used to quit.

Address Emotional Issues Before Quitting

Addressing emotional issues before quitting is an important first step.  There are a number of ways to address these issues such a counsellor, psychologist, psychiatrist. These often assist the person to deal with the symptoms resulting from those traumatic events yet not deal with the actual trauma. One really successful therapy to address the trauma is The Richards Trauma Process.  The Richards Trauma Process™ provides a very powerful way of addressing major trauma, including PTSD, anxiety, depression, phobias and panic attacks. It resolves these issues quickly, effectively and very safely.

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 very 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. Yes that can be challenging however how can a person walk in to do hypnosis to quit smoking and walk out a non smoker? Because it is a habit!

Cigarettes 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.

Steps to Become a Non Smoker

So you have made that initial step to find out more about the Quit Smoking Hypnosis.  Well done! Information is power so once you have done your research then you will have a clearer mind as to how hypnosis works so well.

Quit Smoking Hypnosis Information

I congratulate you on wanting to stop smoking!  Here is a brief on what is shared with people when they phone or information.

  1. Information is essential so here is a link to 2 audios. The first one provides information while the second one is a Stress Reduction and Relaxation Hypnosis allowing you to experience hypnosis. http://lifecoachtoquitsmoking.com/listen-to-this-audio/We do ask  people to listen to these two recordings before they come in for their session.
  1. I ask people to allow 2 hours for their session. While the hypnosis takes less than an hour you need to go through and fill in your forms as I modify the script to meet your needs.  Everyone has different reasons why they want to quit cigarettes, different triggers etc. Also many people who smoke have been smoking for many years and while you will be a non smoker at the end of the session (providing you do want to stop smoking) we need to work on strategies so you can maintain this status of non smoker long term.
  1. Cigarettes contain between 8-20% sugar. So I encourage you to look at fruit to replace this sugar for 4-5 days as a non smoker and especially for you to eat on your way home.
