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.

Will I be Tempted to Smoke?

Now a Non Smoker

Have you ever broken a habit and occasionally thought about that habit? For example you may have made the decision to stop watching TV every night and as you walk into the study or go outside to play, you have a memory of that action.

Is Smoking Really a Habit?

There was a man who was a gym junky and over did it with extreme exercise and high protein rather than a balanced diet and moderate exercise. He did end up in hospital to recover.  He said he knew he had overdone it however occasionally he recalled his experience and while he was back at the gym he was more careful and eating a balanced diet.  So the answer is yes, you MAY have a thought about the habit you once had.  However rarely do people actually restart the habit if they really don’t feel the need again.  This includes people who have become non smokers.  A  non smoker would not pick up a cigarette or light one or even start again as they recall their goal in wanting to be a non smoker.

A successful non smoker at last

Now a Non Smoker

Happy non smoker after hypnosis!

After 50 years as a smoker, Ted Gray can now call himself a non smoker. Ted had many supporters encoraging him to see Maureen Hamilton for Hypnosis and eventually he did. He has never looked back.  However he did say, ”There was a time when I was tempted to have one. However I recognised I didn’t really want it, it was just a thought. So I told myself very sternly I am a non smoker and the thought went away.” He also mentioned that being around other smokers didn’t make him feel like a cigarette.  He is now saving himself $150 a week or $7,800 a year, enjoying his golf and looking at healthy options to spend his money.

Do you feel like a Leper when you smoke?

There are many people still smoking even though the pressure is on to quit.  Smoking is becoming more anti-social with limited areas in which to smoke. As people often say they feel like lepers when they are seen smoking.  Then there is the price which has gone up. People often associate smoking as an addiction so in people’s  mind, there is the perception that it will be so hard to quit.  However as Ms Hamilton says, with hypnosis, it is one easy session and people are non smokers at the end of their session providing they do want to quit. So if this is you, a friend or a loved one then share this information with them so they know there is an option for them to quit.

Do it for the Kids! Smoking’s Impact on Children

Quitting smoking is something you do not only for yourself—you also do it for the people you love, particularly children.

 

Paul was a smoker and his daughter Alexis was the main reason for stopping as he knew it was affecting her health.  You see Alexis had asthma and he had been advised that smoking was harmful for children. He was very surprised and grateful to be a non smoker at the end of his Quit Smoking Hypnosis session.

You see when parents have a regular smoking habit, their children are negatively affected in a variety of ways including:

Poor Health: Breathing secondhand smoke is just as poisonous and dangerous as smoking a cigarette. For children, however, secondhand smoke is particularly dangerous because their lungs, among other body parts, are less developed and more susceptible to the harmful effects of cigarette toxins. Often children of smokers develop issues such as asthma, chronic pneumonia and other respiratory illnesses. They can also develop circulatory problems and there has even been research suggesting a link between secondhand smoke inhalation and leukemia and brain tumors in children.

Poor Habits: Children exposed to their parents’ unhealthy smoking habit, learn that this kind of unhealthy behavior is acceptable. Parents are children’s number one role models and children are always watching mum and dad in order to mimic their behavior and learn to be adults. This is how children learn many of the habits they will carry with them into their adult life, for better or worse.

You have the power to quit—you just need to make the decision to do it. And when you do contact Maureen Hamilton 1300 619 684 or go to http://lifecoachtoquitsmoking.com/ for more information.

Quit Smoking and Quit Snoring

Around 30% of the population snores while they sleep, an indication that something is obstructing the movement of air during their time of much needed rest. There are many factors that contribute to snoring—sleep apnea, weak muscles, drugs—but one common habit that exaggerates the condition is smoking. Hence, people who snore really need to quit smoking if they want to have a more restful sleep for themselves and those they share the bed with. Let’s take a closer look at exactly how smoking affects snoring to further underscore the importance of giving up the habit. [Read more…]
