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.

Customer Testimonials

Hi Maureen, You worked your wonders on me on the 16th of January 2013 for smoking and guess what? I haven’t had a smoke or even felt like one! It is truly amazing after smoking for over 30 years I am no longer a slave to the smokes. I feel better (although I was a bit grumpy for a week or so) but that has passed, I can breathe better and my cough has gone. But food tastes so much better so I am trying to watch what I eat. I do get a craving every now and then and it goes as quick as it come…
