Quit Smoking Cold Turkey Timeline

Quit Smoking with Hypnosis

Congratulations on seeking help to Quit Smoking

Quitting smoking is not easy. Just as you become accustomed to pulling a cigarette out, your body and mind become accustomed to smoking. You develop a habit, and pretty soon it is almost a subconscious reflex. You have a cigarette when you get in your car. You have one when you have your first cup of coffee. You have one the second you step out of the office. As you continue to fuel your smoking habit, your body keeps destroying itself, and suddenly you’re hit with the realization that you need to stop.

Quitting cold turkey does not work for everyone. As mentioned before, the act of smoking is a habit, so quitting involves breaking the habit. And that is tough—imagine quitting another habit, such as biting your nails or cracking your knuckles.

What is the Quit Smoking Cold Turkey Timeline

The timeline of quitting smoking cold turkey is relatively short: Within 3 weeks of not having any cigarettes, all of the nicotine will be out of your system, and withdrawal symptoms should cease. But, if you’re a smoker, imagine no cigarettes for three weeks. Most smokers who choose the cold turkey method wind up giving in and smoking again. This can happen over and over and over. Quitting simply doesn’t stick—you’re still left with the habit that you aren’t fulfilling. This leads to cravings. Many people choose to replace cigarettes with other vices, such as e‑cigarettes, or try prescribed medications to quit smoking. Even when using these, you still want to smoke. You are constantly fighting the urge to have a cigarette and trying to ignore cravings.

How Hypnotherapy is the Answer rather Than Cold Turkey

Think of hypnotherapy as quitting on your own terms with your hypnotherapist helping along. After just one session with a hypnotherapist, you can become a nonsmoker. Doesn’t that sound better than weeks of agonizing withdrawal symptoms and fighting the urge to smoke?

Finding a hypnotherapist you can trust is crucial to the process as a whole. If there is any shred of doubt in your mind, hypnotherapy will not work. You need to be ready to trust your hypnotherapist, and you need to truly want to be a nonsmoker. You must be ready and dedicated.

Think about why you started smoking

Was it stress relief? Peer pressure? No matter how much you enjoyed cigarettes in the beginning, chances are you don’t enjoy them now as you once did. You reach for a cigarette because smoking controls you, not because you truly want that cigarette. This is what makes hypnotherapy for smoking so unique. It works to diminish this relationship that smoking has with your mind. After meeting with a good hypnotherapist, you will never want a cigarette again. The habit will be gone.

Now think about why you want to quit. Do you want to do it for your partner? Your kids? Is your family trying to get you to quit? No matter how close to your heart the reason may be, you will not successfully quit if you don’t want to quit.
