Around 30% of the population snores while they sleep, an indication that something is obstructing the movement of air during their time of much needed rest.

Factors Contributing to Snoring

There are many factors that contribute to snoring—sleep apnoea, weak muscles, drugs—but one common habit that exaggerates the condition is smoking. Hence, people who snore really need to quit smoking if they want to have a more restful sleep for themselves and those they share the bed with. Let’s take a closer look at exactly how smoking affects snoring to further underscore the importance of giving up the habit.

A study led by Karl Franklin, MN, PhD, of the University Hospital in Umeå, Sweden found that the more people smoked, the more often they suffered from snoring and snoring-related problems. These include irritability, daytime drowsiness, low libido and difficulties with focus. The main reason that smoking contributes to snoring problems is because it irritates the upper airways of the human respiratory system. This causes inflammation and ultimately snoring. Anytime the airways are obstructed, the risk of snoring increases. Smoking continuously obstructs the airways, causing mucus blockages and damaging cilia.

Can Secondhand Smoke Cause Snoring

Second-hand smoke is just as harmful with regard to snoring as direct tobacco inhalation. Consequently, smoking can cause snoring problems for anyone in regular contact with the smoker’s environment. This alone should be cause enough for people to want to quit smoking.

The decision to quit smoking is not easy to face alone. Not only does it require great willpower and patience on the part of the smoker, it also requires support from family, friends, and especially health professionals. One health type of health professional that can really help in the quit smoking quest is Quit Smoking hypnosis. Hypnotherapists assist smokers in developing new attitudes and beliefs towards cigarettes, helping them recognize that smoking is a psychosocial habit that they has the power to control. Quit smoking hypnosis enables smokers to realize they no longer a need to attach cigarettes to positive or negative emotional experiences—they can learn to mentally detach from the existence of cigarettes altogether.

Help for Smokers




Will I be Tempted to Smoke?

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.

Interviews – Demartini Method®

Just recently a group of Nine Demartini Method® Facilitators got together to create the Brisbane Stress Busters to assist people who have suffered as a result of the disasters that hit Queensland earlier in the yea, particularly in Brisbane itself.  With the cooperation of The Mayor of Ipswich, Councillor Peter Persale the first workshop was presented in Ipswich on 27th August 2011.  People attending agreed it was time well spent and certainly worth while.

Two of the attendees have given their testimonials for this event. The first one is Louise.

The Second one is Bob and both people were in agreement in that they felt they recieved really good value from attending this workshop.

NLP Master Practitioner

As a Quit Cigarettes in 60 Minutes Specialist using hypnotherapy and Neuro Linguistic Programming or NLP, assisting people overcome their smoking habit, has been an amazing journey. I love talking to people and hearing their stories and knowing that at the end of their session they will be a non smoker. Just recently I was in Sydney doing my NLP Master Practitioner training and what an amazing week listening to the experts in NLP.

Both George Faddoul and Nick LeForce are the true experts sharing their knowledge and stories to make an already interesting topic more interesting. One of the therapies presented was overcoming allergies. So many of us have an allergy and within just a couple of minutes one man had his allergy to perfume completely removed. A number of different perfumes were sprayed around him and yet he didn’t react at all. The first one he couldn’t even smell.

Another great aspect of this training was meeting such an interesting group of people from many walks of life doing incredible things. Over the six days we were able to work with a wide range of people and it was so interesting hearing their stories, about family and their work. One person really stood out in my mind and that was another lady from Brisbane who is one of my “Quit” clients. We were able to share stories and I was delighted to hear how she was going with her work and studies as a non smoker. Another interesting chap was from Perth and he was working in the mining industry yet in his spare time was helping small businesses with their financial and/or legal issues.

I now look forward to my next training with QC Seminars in March 2012 which is the Millionaire Speakers training.
