Quit Smoking Inspiration

Quitting a bad habit is one of the most difficult things to do, especially smoking. It is  a physically and mentally destructive habit that leaves its mark on all systems of the body. For you, quitting smoking may seem impossible. However, with the right tools, determination, and inspiration, you can quit without ever wanting a cigarette again.

However, you really need all of those three things: Determination, inspiration, and the right tools. Quit smoking inspiration comes from within, and the smoker must be driven in order to feel inspired. Maybe their family is worried about their physical or mental health. Maybe they have a family history of heart disease and don’t want to exacerbate their risk by smoking. If an addict doesn’t have the will to quit the habit, nothing will make them. While smoking is more of a habit than an addiction, it will still be fairly difficult for most people. For some, the will to quit might be sudden, and for some others it may be more gradual.

The Right Tools to Help You Quit

 Once you find your personal inspiration and determination to quit, it’s time to find the right tools to put you on the right track.

Remember: To quit, you have to be ready to quit. If you still want to smoke while you’re quitting, you are less likely to become a permanent non-smoker and more likely to cycle through relapses.

Frequently speaking with another person who has quit with hypnosis certainly is quit smoking inspiration. Mary went to see Maureen Hamilton (Hypnotherapist) to quit smoking. At the end of her session (only one) she went off a happy non-smoker. Two weeks later her son called and said, “You got Mum off cigarettes after smoking for 44 years. So I need to come and see you too.” This chap was working at the local station as a policeman.  Needless to say he also went off as a happy non-smoker. So if you’re ready and truly committed, then hypnosis will change your life so you too can be a non-smoker.

What can hypnosis do for you?

 Hypnosis is the most unique tool to help you quit smoking. It is the only one that can help you truly believe you are a non-smoker, rather than a smoker who is suppressing his or her cravings with medicated treatment. For hypnosis to be effective in terms of quitting smoking, you must first find an accredited hypnotist, and then you must trust them, and trust yourself, that the hypnosis will work.

What is the Process to Quit Smoking with a Hypnotherapist

Before you meet with the hypnotherapist, he or she may speak with you to try and gather more information, and to see if you’re uncomfortable or unsure of the process. It is their job to make sure everything goes smoothly!

By the time you first visit your hypnotherapist, you two should have an action plan all ready to go. Just like no two people are the same, no two smokers are the same. Each smoker’s experience with a hypnotherapist will be different than the next.

The importance of following up

 Once you become a non-smoker, you will have a period of adjustment, even just in terms of your lungs. In order to help you cope with this and keep you on track, you need to follow instructions about your care following your session. Only you can be in control once you become a non-smoker.

Final thoughts

With a hypnotherapist, the hardest part about quitting smoking is finding your inspiration. Once you’re determined, you can work together with your hypnotherapist so that your future never includes another cigarette.

Whether or not you’ve tried other methods to quit smoking in the past, you can find fulfilling and permanent success in hypnosis.

Can I Really Quit Smoking in 3 Weeks?

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.

Cigarette Prison: The Smoker’s Isolation

Very often, we think of smoking as a social habit; that is, smoking is something that people do to connect with others around them. But as smoking becomes more and more of a taboo—especially in the public sphere—many smokers are beginning to feel isolated and alone as they see their friends around them quit smoking one by one.

Depressed as he would like to quit

Not so long ago, smokers were everywhere. On planes, in the office, at parties, in their beds reading at night. And even though Big Tobacco is still a multi-billion dollar industry world-wide, headway has been made in the effort to get people to quit smoking: In Australia, for example, the smoking ban in all enclosed public spaces makes it impossible to light up in bars and restaurants.

Smoking bans

These bans plus people’s awareness that smoking is deadly, have contributed to lower rates of smoking in some cases here in Australia. But the shadow side is that smoking is now a stigmatized activity. In today’s world, smokers are usually looked down on by non-smokers.

The Stigma Surrounding Smoking

This can lead many smokers to feel isolated and alone. Some even go as far as to engage in their habit in complete secrecy. Others worry that they will be shut out or mocked by friends, family and colleagues because of their dependency on cigarettes. As a result, many smokers become depressed and unsure of what to do—they want know they want to quit, but aren’t sure how. They just feel so alone.

The good news

Is that smokers don’t have to feel isolated. They can give up their smoking habits without being stigmatized. Quit smoking professionals, like those who employ quit smoking hypnosis, help smokers quit without feeling ashamed of themselves. Smoking cessation professionals help smokers empower themselves to kick their cigarette habits for good. With the guidance of a good quit smoking professional, smokers learn to value themselves and build self-esteem. With self-esteem comes the ability to be alone without feeling isolated as well as the ability to socialize without feeling stigmatized.

No smoker need ever feel isolated because no smoker is ever really alone. There is always help for those who need it—and help to quit smoking is no exception.

Does Smoking Cause Indigestion?

Does Smoking Cause Indigestion

Many of the negative side effects of smoking are well-known:  quit smoking campaigns have made the dangers of cancer, emphysema and heart disease crystal clear to consumers. However, smoking can lead to a great many other health complications, including indigestion. Let’s look at some of the ways that tobacco use affects the gastrointestinal system in order to drive home the point that it is important to quit smoking as soon as possible.

What is Indigestion?

Indigestion is often defined as some kind of impairment of the digestive process. When this occurs the symptoms are very uncomfortable and include bloating, heartburn, nausea, belching and general discomfort in the stomach. There is nothing at all pleasant about indigestion.

Indigestion, however, is often a symptom in itself of a larger medical condition. For example, many people with chronic pancreatitis, ulcers, and gastro esophageal reflux disease experience the many discomforting aspects of indigestion listed above.

Aside from medical conditions that walk hand in hand with indigestion, smoking plays a big role in creating the right conditions for digestive disruption in the body. When a smoker inhales the tobacco smoke, the stomach and the esophagus is irritated, as well as the valves connecting them to the stomach lining. This boosts acidity and contributes to heartburn, bloating and indigestion.

This kind of disruption occurs every time a smoker inhales, and thus people who smoke many cigarettes on a daily basis are constantly irritating their digestive system and creating discomfort. The more the digestive system is mistreated, the higher the chance of a person developing gastrointestinal diseases. Thus, smoking contributes to a destructive gastrointestinal cycle.

Quit Smoking and Stop Indigestion

Luckily, a vexatious case of indigestion can be mitigated or even cured by giving up cigarettes. One of the great things about quitting smoking is that the benefits are immediate; that is, the body begins to heal in a New York minute. Once the body is no longer exposed to toxic tobacco smoke, the indigestion begins to fade as the gastrointestinal system is no longer agitated by the cigarette poisons.

Quitting Smoking is Not Always Easy

Especially since it is a matter of will power. Recent research conducted at the University of Tel Aviv confirms that smoking is not an addiction but rather a psychosocial habit. However, the good news is that there people can overcome their smoking habit by taking on a mind over matter mindset and this can best be done by enlisting the help of a hypnotherapist. Hypnotherapists help people change their core beliefs and thought processes in order for them to live more healthy and fulfilling lives. Quitting smoking takes commitment and persistence, but the long-term health and happiness benefits far outweigh the initial discomfort of giving up a bad habit.

Nicotine Replacement Therapies and Risks of Habituation

Nicotine Replacement Therapies and the Risks of Habituation

Smoking is a habit and NRT only prolongs that habit

The mainstream public has been led to believe that the main culprit behind tobacco use is the addictive nature of nicotine. Despite evidence to the contrary, such as studies that confirm that smoking is not an addiction but rather a psychosocial habit, many smokers cling to the idea that kicking smoking simply means kicking nicotine addiction. Thus, many smokers readily enlist the services of nicotine replacement therapies (NRTs). However, there is a major problem with this approach to quitting smoking: NRTs can create the same psychological dependency as cigarettes.

What is NRT

Nicotine Replacement Therapy or NRT is used by many people who want to quit smoking for good. The method is pretty simple: smoking cessation is achieved by administering doses of nicotine by way of either nicotine patches or nicotine gum. The idea is that as long as the smoker gets a little bit of nicotine, he or she will have satisfied the craving for cigarettes. Unfortunately, NRT very often becomes a bad habit of its own.

Research on NRT

According to researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health, NRTs are not effective in the long-term battle against tobacco use. In other words: those who smoke before they start chewing nicotine gum will likely keep smoking later on in life.

Tel Aviv University’s study that demonstrated the fact that smoking is a psychosocial habit and not a physical addiction shows that the reason for both cigarette and NRT dependency is a belief system that creates an unhealthy reliance on the former and the latter. Smokers continue to smoke because they learn to associate positive emotions and phenomena with the act of smoking a cigarette.

NRT users continue to chew gum or use patches because they become dependent on the psychological satisfaction they get from believing that they are controlling their smoking habit.  In the end, both dependencies are rooted not in the physical body but in the needs of the psyche.

So why do many quit smoking professionals continue to advocate NRTs?

The unfortunate truth is because there is money to be made in the manufacturing of such products. Helping people conquer the smoking habit via quit smoking hypnosis or other mind over matter methods is not very lucrative for the pharmaceutical industry. Hence, the mainstream has a tendency to promote NRTs.

The most surefire way to quit smoking for good is not to depend on NRTs but instead to create new beliefs and thought processes that diminish the need for the tobacco habit. Quitting smoking is really about getting to the psychological root of the problem and then fixing it.
