Six Tips to Quit Smoking

Despite how aware we are of the health hazards associated with smoking, millions of people across the globe still light up each day. That does not mean, however, that millions of people want to keep smoking. There are many who do want to quit.

Hypnotherapist offers tips to support you to quit smoking:

Admit that smoking is also a habit

Smoking is often quoted as being an addiction. However it is also a really powerful habit. Have you ever found you have a cigarette in your hand and thought, “That’s odd, I really didn’t want this one!” So the question is often asked, how many cigarettes a day do you really enjoy?

Plan, plan, plan

Make a quit smoking plan. This may include setting goals and deadlines or enlisting the help of a hypnotherapist, find a way to approach smoking cessation with structure and support.

Make a full commitment

Quitting smoking requires a full commitment especially because breaking down old habits and building up new ones requires that you really focus all of your energy-no slacking!

Find a source of motivation

What is it that motivates you to quit smoking? Your life-health, your family, work, finances? Whatever the reason or reasons, know it as it will help you keep your eye on the prize.

Find a quit smoking buddy

It is always easier to hold ourselves accountable when we are accountable to someone beyond ourselves. Find someone who will support you or find someone you can share the smoking cessation process.

Cigarettes contain sugar and lots of it

So once you become a non smoker, you need to replace this sugar for approximately 4-5 days and then slowly wean yourself back to what you normally eat in a day.  This is one of the reasons why people put on weight when they stop smoking.  Their blood sugar drops and they eat, and frequently it is the wrong food, rewarding themselves for being non smokers!

The other more upsetting side effect of this is getting grumpy.  On her third day after her session, Paula phoned to say she didn’t feel or even want a cigarette, but was getting grumpy! Paula was asked how she was going with the fruit. Apparently Paula had eaten lots the first day but stopped.  So Paula went back to eating some fruit and when followed up a week later said it was the sugar and she was fine.

Quitting smoking is an important step to finding a healthy balance in life and living out your days to the fullest. It can be difficult or it can be easy.  If you are thinking about giving up cigarettes then take the easy road.  Maureen Hamilton has assisted over a thousand people to quit smoking and even offers a Lifetime Guarantee.  Maureen can be contacted on 1300 619 684.

Will I be Tempted to Smoke?

Now a Non Smoker

Have you ever broken a habit and occasionally thought about that habit? For example you may have made the decision to stop watching TV every night and as you walk into the study or go outside to play, you have a memory of that action.

Is Smoking Really a Habit?

There was a man who was a gym junky and over did it with extreme exercise and high protein rather than a balanced diet and moderate exercise. He did end up in hospital to recover.  He said he knew he had overdone it however occasionally he recalled his experience and while he was back at the gym he was more careful and eating a balanced diet.  So the answer is yes, you MAY have a thought about the habit you once had.  However rarely do people actually restart the habit if they really don’t feel the need again.  This includes people who have become non smokers.  A  non smoker would not pick up a cigarette or light one or even start again as they recall their goal in wanting to be a non smoker.

A successful non smoker at last

Now a Non Smoker

Happy non smoker after hypnosis!

After 50 years as a smoker, Ted Gray can now call himself a non smoker. Ted had many supporters encoraging him to see Maureen Hamilton for Hypnosis and eventually he did. He has never looked back.  However he did say, ”There was a time when I was tempted to have one. However I recognised I didn’t really want it, it was just a thought. So I told myself very sternly I am a non smoker and the thought went away.” He also mentioned that being around other smokers didn’t make him feel like a cigarette.  He is now saving himself $150 a week or $7,800 a year, enjoying his golf and looking at healthy options to spend his money.

Do you feel like a Leper when you smoke?

There are many people still smoking even though the pressure is on to quit.  Smoking is becoming more anti-social with limited areas in which to smoke. As people often say they feel like lepers when they are seen smoking.  Then there is the price which has gone up. People often associate smoking as an addiction so in people’s  mind, there is the perception that it will be so hard to quit.  However as Ms Hamilton says, with hypnosis, it is one easy session and people are non smokers at the end of their session providing they do want to quit. So if this is you, a friend or a loved one then share this information with them so they know there is an option for them to quit.
