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.

Smoking’s Effect on the Teeth

You are likely well aware of the many adverse side-effects linked to smoking http://lifecoachtoquitsmok ing.com/smoking-2/why-you-shouldnt-smoke-the-basics, but one issue that often goes unnoticed in the quit smoking battle is the harm cigarettes can do to your teeth.

What is so bad about smoking

Smoking is toxic and the thousands of poisons and chemicals in each cigarette hinder the functioning of your body’s circulatory system.This means that the blood you need to keep your gums healthy and strong isn’t quite making it to your mouth. Furthermore, cigarettes interfere with your body’s ability to generate new cells. As a result healing and preservation don’t take place vis-à-vis your teeth.

How can smoking affect the teeth

These are the main reasons why smoking can lead to a plethora of dental problems, including:
• Gum disease
• Bad breath
• Tooth discoloration
• Plaque and tarter build-up
• Inflamed salivary glands
• Oral cancer

All of the issues above are impediments to your health and happiness (who wants to go around with bad breath). What’s worse is that life with oral cancer can be fatal. Thus, smoking is tantamount to giving up on dental care.

Do you want to have healthy teeth

Then you really should consider quitting smoking. Perhaps you realize this and you are looking for a way to kick your cigarette habit? One quit smoking method that is worth your efforts is quit smoking hypnosis. Quit smoking hypnosis harnesses the power of the brain—the power you have over your own mind—towards positive changes in habits and beliefs. Since research shows that smoking is a psycho-social habit, quit smoking hypnosis gives you the chance to quit smoking for good by creating new, healthy habits that don’t include cigarettes.

Harness the Power of Your Unconscious Mind, Quit Smoking for Good

Many people think that quitting smoking entails a mixture of nicotine patches and endless suffering and cigarette cravings. But, truthfully, quitting smoking doesn’t have to be so difficult (or painstaking) if you tap into the power of your unconscious mind.

Quitting with Hypnosis

Is smoking really an addiction?

Mainstream medicine tells you that smoking is an addiction to nicotine, but new research, conducted at Tel Aviv University, shows that smoking is actually a psychosocial habit. That is, you smoke because you are mentally—and not physically—dependent on cigarettes.

The conscious and unconscious mind

Being mentally dependent on cigarettes means that your unconscious mind is at work. The mind is divided into both the conscious and unconscious mind. The conscious mind is the awareness that we have of our thoughts and actions in daily life—what am I doing right now or what will I do tomorrow? The unconscious mind, on the other hand, stores our memories, emotions, thoughts and habits—what happened yesterday, or years ago, and how do I feel about it?

Most people begin smoking for a variety of psychological reasons that get lodged in the unconscious mind: relieving stress, easing of social anxiety, wanting to looking cool. In the past the army encouraged their troops to smoke as they said it would keep them calm. Cigarettes, then, become associated with certain psychosocial situations and needs and as a result, smoking becomes an unconscious habit.

When smoking becomes a habit

The best way to quit is to get to the root of the problem: your unconscious mind. In order to quit smoking, you need to change the unconscious messages that you tell yourself about smoking: that it will make you feel relaxed; that it will help you make friends; that it will make you look “cool” and popular.

The Power of Hypnosis

One way to change your unconscious beliefs is to harness the power of your unconscious mind through hypnotherapy. With the help of an experienced hypnotherapist, you can re-train your thoughts and beliefs so that they tell you a new set of messages: that you don’t like cigarettes, that you don’t need cigarettes, that you will never smoke again! Hypnotherapy helps you realize that your thoughts create your own reality and that you have the power to change and control them. So if you want to give up cigarettes—and really give them up for good—then take advantage of a quit smoking method like hypnotherapy and harness the power of your unconscious mind for positive changes. You are in charge of you!

Smoking and the Health Care System: The Cost of Cigarettes

Save your health and money!

You know about the cost of smoking in terms of longevity—smokers live shorter, sicker lives. But did you know that smoking costs health care systems across the globe billions of dollars every year?

Quit Smoking with Hypnosis

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention smoking  related-illnesses account for 6-8% of all health care costs in the United States, with parallel costs worldwide. Thus, health care systems are putting a lot of their time and resources into helping those with problems like lung cancer, emphysema, and circulatory illnesses.

Total economic cost of smoking

This is more than $300 billion a year, including:-

  • Nearly $170 billion in direct medical care for adults
  • More than $156 billion in lost productivity due to premature death and exposure to secondhand smoke

Even when smokers quit, the health care system is still taxed by the health problems that they experience as a result of their deadly habit. However, if smokers can stay smoke-free for at least two years, the costs even out.

So what does all this mean?

For one, smoking is an expensive habit that impacts more than just the individual. When you smoke, you are asking tax payers to help fund your medical care, medical care that may not have been necessary if you never used cigarettes in the first place.

Furthermore, research shows the importance of quitting smoking in the long run; if you quit smoking for at least two years, then you no longer are an extra burden to the health care system—instead, your costs are similar to non-smokers.

how much money could be saved if people gave up their smoking habits for good? Think, for a minute, how much money you could save if you gave up your smoking habit for good? While you can’t control what everyone else does, you can control what you do; you can be a part of the rising health care cost solution by giving up cigarettes for good—and encouraging others you know to do the same.

Steps to Become a Non Smoker

So you have made that initial step to find out more about the Quit Smoking Hypnosis.  Well done! Information is power so once you have done your research then you will have a clearer mind as to how hypnosis works so well.

Quit Smoking Hypnosis Information

I congratulate you on wanting to stop smoking!  Here is a brief on what is shared with people when they phone or information.

  1. Information is essential so here is a link to 2 audios. The first one provides information while the second one is a Stress Reduction and Relaxation Hypnosis allowing you to experience hypnosis. http://lifecoachtoquitsmoking.com/listen-to-this-audio/We do ask  people to listen to these two recordings before they come in for their session.
  1. I ask people to allow 2 hours for their session. While the hypnosis takes less than an hour you need to go through and fill in your forms as I modify the script to meet your needs.  Everyone has different reasons why they want to quit cigarettes, different triggers etc. Also many people who smoke have been smoking for many years and while you will be a non smoker at the end of the session (providing you do want to stop smoking) we need to work on strategies so you can maintain this status of non smoker long term.
  1. Cigarettes contain between 8-20% sugar. So I encourage you to look at fruit to replace this sugar for 4-5 days as a non smoker and especially for you to eat on your way home.

Where are you located?

The practice is Joyner Health Centre, 263A Young’s Crossing Road Joyner.

The cost is $495 unless you are a pensioner then there is $50 discount, so the cost will be $445. I have an eftpos facility for MasterCard and Visa. The benefit is that providing you want to stop smoking then you will be a non smoker at the end of your session with a lifetime guarantee (and yes it is only one session).  That means if you ever relapse back into being a smoker, you will be able to come back with no cost to you.  This is a hugely successful process and I would love to help you.
