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

Depressed as he would like to quit

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

Paul’s Story

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 has asthma and Paul 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 for more information and/or to book online.

Quit Smoking and Get Rid of Your Chest Pain

Whether you have just quit smoking or even if you are still smoking, chest pain is a problem you are likely to encounter with cigarette usage. If you experience smoking-related chest pain, then you know that it can be a scary experience; chest pain causes many smokers to worry about diseases such as cancer and emphysema. However before you diagnose yourself (or dive into the scary medical information flooding the internet) take the time to understand the various kinds and causes of chest pain—and then make sure to see your doctor to get the final verdict on what you are experiencing.

Are you a long term smoker?

Long-term smokers, short-term smokers and the newly smoke-free all have the potential to experience chest pain. Chest pain, as a term, is  very vague. There are different kinds of chest pain: sharp, shooting pains when breathing, dull aching, throbbing, pain with coughing etc.

Smokers often experience all of the above mentioned types of chest pain, but not all indicate the presence of a medical condition. Still, if you are a smoker and you experience sustained chest pain, then you need to get to a doctor right away; you could be suffering from lung cancer, emphysema, or angina pectoris—insufficient blood flow to the heart which can result in a heart attack.

For the newly smoke-free, chest pain and even black mucus are very common in the first few weeks after you quit smoking. However, if you notice that the pain does not subside, or that the mucus is black and also streaked with blood, it is important you go to the doctor for a check-up to make sure there is not something more serious going on.

How to avoid chest pain

The best way to avoid chest pain? Don’t smoke, obviously! In other words – quit smoking! But if you are a smoker, then it is never too late to take charge of your health and get rid of that nagging sore feeling in your chest for good. There are many methods out there that can help you, such as quit smoking hypnosis. Quit smoking hypnosis will help you re-wire your brain’s beliefs and feelings about cigarettes so that you no longer depend on them for emotional and/or psychological soothing.

You have the power to quit

You just have to make the decision to stop. Quitting smoking doesn’t have to be difficult—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 get involved in the discussion on Facebook and Twitter.

Becoming a Non Smoker

Did you ever smoke and are you now a non smoker? You must feel that sense of pride and achievement, and no doubt very, very happy and relieved. Yes, and of course it is an achievement and you have made it – so well done!

Receiving lots of comments and congratulations?

Family are usually the ones who appreciate the sacrifice and effort you have made because they are the ones who worry about you. Clients often tell me that their partner hasn’t made them give up.

Hugh Hamilton

Hugh Hamilton-Smoking killed him at age 47

However so often the smell, mess and worry about their partners health as a smoker is the true reality of their concern and silence. They feel helpless as I did with my husband when he continued to smoke. Being a trained nurse and knowing the facts, resulted in a great deal of stress especially with four young children. When my husband had his first heart attack, I was scared and worried, even more worried when he decided he wanted to work in PNG. Thankfully the hospital on Bougainville was the best equipped hospital in PNG. So we were blessed.

Twenty months later when he had his second heart attack I was working as the Nursing Superintendent at the hospital. The Medical Superintendent medivac’d him out the next day so he was in Brisbane when they diagnosed him two days later with extensive lung cancer. This had caused a blockage of one of the main arteries to his heart resulting in his heart attack. I sent one of the trained staff to travel with him so I could stay with the children.

The dangers of living on Bougainville

At that time Bougainville was becoming more isolated with the violence; the airport had been destroyed along with all the planes except one which had been severely damaged. However the staff were able to repair the plane sufficiently which allowed it to continue flying. It was a difficult time as I had two children still on the island. However a very dear friend agreed to care for the children until we could organise flights out of Bougainville. They also packed up our house which was a huge task. Such kindness is never forgotten as another very kind person gave up their seat on the next available flight to allow me to travel to Brisbane all the while unsure of how my husband was doing. We had to make four stops including an overnight stay in Cairns due to the problems on Bougainville. At every stop I wasn’t sure if I had a seat on the next flight as I hadn’t booked. However the airline used their emergency seating to accommodate me. When I arrived in Brisbane my husband was very sick as they had started chemotherapy. There was such a lot of cancer the body struggled to remove the dead cells from the cancer and chemo.

What about the Children?

I was delighted when the children arrived three days later and we could spend time with their father. We had 11 months with him before he died a most unpleasant death having gone through chemo and later on radiotherapy when he was diagnosed with brain tumours. However I will always look back on those 11 months and feel gratitude for this time with him. Wherever I can, I will continue to help other families so their loved one can have additional time with them. So love your partner, families and the world at large. You have had your life extended by up to 14 years now so love your life and enjoy those people around you.

Is Smoking a habit?

Smoking is a habit, and Hypnosis has been proven successful in changing this habit. At Life Coach to Quit Smoking we address all parts and triggers of the habit during your session. Wanting to quit smoking is the key. Smokers we see are non-smokers at the end of their session, and you could be too.

How did the Smoking Habit Start?

Since it is a habit, we not only use hypnosis we also use the power of NLP or Neuro Linguistic Programming. That first cigarette you smoked may have tasted terrible, you possibly coughed and felt awful. However, after a while you decided you enjoyed it.

The subconscious mind is there to protect you mentally and emotionally. So, once it registers you are getting pleasure out of it, it puts it into your subconscious mind as a habit. The more you smoked and the longer you smoked, the more powerful that habit has become.

Are There Any Cravings When I Stop Smoking?

While in that relaxed state of hypnosis and speaking to the subconscious mind, telling it you want to be a non-smoker, your subconscious mind registers your desire and you will cease to want that cigarette ever again. You will be pleased to know there are no cravings or withdrawals.

Hypnosis has helped many people deal with a multitude of problems including weight loss, anxiety, depression, PTSD and so many other conditions. It is a completely drug free, natural way to deal with habits and other emotional issues.
