Have the healthy lifestyle with quitting smoking

Enjoy a healthy lifestyle and be a non smoker

It’s an offer you can’t refuse and it’s an offer that likely sounds too good to be true: quit smoking in three weeks? But quitting smoking in three weeks is actually a very attainable goal as long as you know how to go about it the right way.

How Can you Quit Smoking in 3 Weeks

There are three steps that you can take in order to permanently rid yourself of a smoking habit in three weeks: identifying a want, identifying a good reason and making use of hypnosis. Let’s take a closer look at all three:

1 – The Want

 To be able to quit smoking in three weeks’ time you have to have a very strong want. That is, a strong desire and then your will to quit smoking. This is a pretty simple and self-explanatory step. The old saying goes that where there is a will there is a way. Thus, without a will, there is no way to quit smoking. You may feel under pressure from well thinking family and friends to quit smoking. However while this may be helpful, you may not have that want. So think about all the negatives of smoking such as the dame it is doing to your health. Even dying at an early age  which happens quiet frequently. Hypnotherapist Maureen Hamilton had this experience with her husband dying at 47 from smoking. So it is possibly and it does happen. Perhaps think about second hand smoke and how it is affecting those around you, not only the people but also pets.

2 – A Good Reason

Most people develop a strong want to quit smoking because they have a good reason to quit smoking. There are a range of reasons why people want to quit: health, family, job or financial issues can all be catalysts for the smoking cessation process. The key is to find a reason or reasons that really compels you to put out the cigarettes. It is preferable to find this reason or reasons earlier rather than later. For example, it is much better to look into the future and decide to quit smoking before you have kids rather than wait until you have already had kids and expose them to the damages of second-hand smoke.

3. Hypnosis

 Finally, after you have identified your want and your reason, you need to find a quit smoking method. And if you really want to successfully quit smoking in three weeks then quit smoking hypnosis is the way to go. Quit smoking hypnosis will provide you with the tools you need to eradicate your emotional and psychological dependence on cigarettes. You can then learn to emotionally and psychologically gratify yourself in ways that contribute to your health and well-being in positive, life-affirming ways.

Smoking and Pregnant

Impact of smoking on kids

Quit smoking before it harms your kids!

Smoking used to be cool, the coolest thing you could do. Just watch an episode of Mad Men or turn on a Humphrey Bogart flick for proof—tobacco used to be the King of suave. These days cigarettes have lost their glitz and glamour. In most Western countries, smoking is frowned upon and is quickly losing is social acceptability.

How Does Smoking Affect the Unborn Baby

Just because something is stigmatized does not make it an anti-social behavior. Many smokers would still claim that smoking is an act of community during which people can socialize and make and maintain friendships. However, recent research has linked prenatal smoking to anti-social behavior in children. If this is true, it has wide-ranging consequences for our society since many pregnant women are exposed to cigarette smoke on a daily basis even if they have made the conscious decision not to smoke themselves.

Potential Issues Due to Smoking While Pregnant

According to a study published in the British Journal of Psychiatry, a “small but significant” link exists between maternal smokers and the development of ADHD and unruly behavior in their progeny. They speculate that this has to do with the reduction of oxygen to the fetus when mother’s smoke during pregnancy, which can damage brain development as well as other parts of the body. While this claim is still quite controversial (as many psychiatrists see ADHD and unruly behavior as phenomena engendered by socialization), it is still worth pondering. How many children and the lives of those around them, are negatively impacted by the fact that they were exposed to the over 4000 toxins present in cigarette smoke? We know how fragile fetal development is and we know what cigarettes do to adult bodies. So it isn’t that far of a stretch to see the link between maternal smoking and the development of anti-social behavior in children.

What Can You do for Your Unborn Child

If you are a smoker and are considering having children or are around pregnant women, then you should seriously consider the implications of your habit relative to the healthy development of the baby growing inside you or growing inside the women around you. Children are born into this world innocent and dependent and rely on the judgment of their parents for their health, development and safety. Children are a great incentive for you to find the will power to break the chains of your tobacco habit. There are many smoking cessation methods that can help you put out your last cigarette. One method worth looking into is hypnotherapy or hypnosis to quit smoking as it helps you change your beliefs and restructure your habits—it is never too late to create a new you!

Unfortunately when quitting smoking it is important to be focused on being a non smoker. So preparation is extremely important. Going cold turkey is painful and there is an emotional struggle. That’s because smoking is a habit and you are trying a break a habit built up over years and years. The unconscious mind is there to protect you emotionally as well as physically. So that habit is keeping you happy. So changing that habit is going against your unconscious mind making quitting very difficult. This is where hypnosis comes in. Hypnosis is an easy pleasant way to become a non smoker in just one session.

Why Quit Smoking is Hard

Depressed as he would like to quit

Habits are hard to break. Like biting your nails or twirling your hair, smoking is a habit that becomes a nearly unconscious reflex. As you develop a smoking habit, your mind associates having a cigarette with getting settled in your car, having your morning coffee, or walking out of the office at the end of a workday. It becomes a subconscious habit. Quitting smoking is hard because, by quitting, you are forcing yourself to remove a habit out of your daily mindset.

Once you are a smoker, you do not continue to smoke because you truly want or enjoy every cigarette. You continue to smoke because smoking controls your life. It is automatic. This is why quitting smoking is so hard, but, as long as you’re truly ready, quitting smoking doesn’t have to be impossible.

The problem with physical treatments

People wonder why quit smoking is hard. Many people turn to physical solutions to help them quit smoking, whether those are nicotine patches, gums, or electronic cigarettes. These can help curb physical cravings, but the mental urge is still there. While using these treatments, you are still a smoker. It is common for smokers who have used these to pick up smoking again, either in the middle of treatment or shortly after quitting. Especially if you turn to using electronic cigarettes, you are replacing one habit with another. If long-term or life-long quitting is your goal, you may be looking for other, more permanent solutions.

How hypnosis is unique

Hypnosis is different. A good hypnotherapist can make you into a permanent nonsmoker after just one session. For a hypnosis session to be successful, though, you must be completely prepared. Perhaps the hypnotherapist will provide materials to fill out, listen to, or read before your session. Think of why you want to quit, why you started smoking in the first place, and why you have or haven’t tried quitting previously. You cannot have doubts while going into your hypnotherapy session—you must trust your hypnotherapist, and you must truly believe you will be a nonsmoker at the end of the session. You may have outside motivators to help you quit smoking, whether that is your family, friends, job, etc., but the most essential thing you can bring to your hypnosis session is your want to quit.

After hypnosis: Being a nonsmoker

Being a nonsmoker, of course, has its perks. But after so many years of smoking, suddenly quitting after just one hypnotherapy session can come as a shock to the body, especially the lungs. After all, you’re used to taking more deep breaths from inhaling cigarette puffs as a smoker. After your hypnotherapy session, your hypnotherapist should advise you to frequently perform deep breathing exercises. There is still a buildup of tar and other harmful chemicals remaining in your lungs, so modified breathing technique is essential to getting healthy lungs back. Practice deep breathing exercises whenever you’d normally have a cigarette, or several times a day.

With other methods, quitting smoking is hard, but with hypnosis and the true want to be a nonsmoker, it is possible after just one session.

Smoking and Cardiac Arrhythmias: What You Need To Know

Smoking is incredibly damaging to the human heart. Whether contributing to heart disease, heart attacks, or other circulatory problems, tobacco smoke is a deadly poison for the cardiovascular system and it is imperative that people quit smoking in order to save their lives.

What is Cardiac Arrhythmia

One cardiovascular aspect of smoking that is discussed less often than the others is the cardiac arrhythmia. Cardiac arrhythmia is common. It is quite normal to have the occasional irregular heart beat due to occasionally wacky electrical impulses coursing through the veins. However, cardiac arrhythmia can also become chronic and may signal more serious cardiovascular problems. And chronic cardiac arrhythmia  is very often caused by smoking.

Smoking can cause cardiac arrhythmias because it is a stimulant that makes the heart beat faster and more irregularly. Chronic cardiac arrhythmias can be very uncomfortable: dizziness, shortness of breath, headaches and racing heart beats are all symptoms that can be bothersome and even alarming when occurring constantly.

Quit Smoking to Stop the Cardiac Arrhythmia

The good news is that cardiac arrhythmia can be eradicated when smokers quit; over time, the body heals and the cardiovascular system gets back on track.  In fact, quitting smoking can reduce the risk of death by cardiovascular disease by nearly 50%!

Getting rid of cardiac arrhythmias means quitting smoking, but this can very often feel harder than climbing Mt. Everest. As a psychosocial habit, the need to smoke is deeply habituated and it takes a lot of patience, willpower and commitment to quit.

Luckily, there are a variety of quit smoking methods available to make tobacco cessation easier. One such method is quit smoking hypnosis, which gets to the root of the smoking habit. It allows smokers to re-wire their beliefs relative to cigarettes so that they no longer depend on them for emotional gratification or stress relief. Quit smoking hypnosis is easy. Of course the long-term health benefits, such as reduced cardiac arrhythmia makes it definitely worth the effort.

Smoking and Asthma – Secondhand Smoke: What You Need to Know

Asthma - Use Quit Smoking Hypnosis

Asthma – Use Quit Smoking Hypnosis

There are millions of asthma sufferers on the planet and if you are a smoker, they need your help: they need you to quit smoking so that they can breathe better. Secondhand smoking isn’t only damaging your health—your secondhand smoke is damaging the health of those around you. Let’s take a closer look at the dangers of secondhand smoke in general and vis-à-vis asthma.

There are many ways secondhand smoke harms non-smokers.

However it is especially hazardous to those suffering from respiratory illnesses such as asthma. Asthma is a chronic inflammation of the airways in the respiratory system. Cigarette smoke is extremely hazardous to people with asthma. It triggers asthma attacks and increases the severity of the attacks.

What Happens with Smoking

Inhaling tobacco smoke allows the toxins and irritating substances in the smoke to settle in the moist areas of the airways. This is what triggers an asthma attack. It also makes the attack more intense than usual and more difficult to recover.  Since the cilia in the airways are damaged they cannot sweep the toxin and junk away and help the breathing process even out.

Smoking also causes major mucus build ups which can be hazardous to asthma sufferers as this further blocks their airways. Additionally, if someone is suffering from a cold or other respiratory illness, inhaling secondhand smoke makes it more difficult for them to clear out the excess gunk and junk backed up in their airways.

How Does Smoking Affect Children

Aside from secondhand smoke exaggerating preexisting asthma, secondhand smoke can also cause new cases of asthma to develop especially in small children. Small children have small and delicate bodies and they breathe much more rapidly than adults. This rapid breathing causes them to inhale more toxins from secondhand smoke than an adult or teenager. This can cause damage to their airways which can cause asthma to develop or lead to other respiratory illnesses and difficulties.

How can I Quit Smoking

If you are struggling with a smoking habit then you need not feel ashamed. You just need to take action! Quitting smoking isn’t the easiest path to follow. Yet it is among the most rewarding thing you can do for yourself and of course those around you. Getting rid of your tobacco habit will set you on the path to better emotional and physical health in the long run. So have courage and quit smoking! Save your life and the lives of those around you!
