Illness after Quitting Smoking

Have you ever heard of people getting sick, days or even months after quitting smoking? You may wonder why this could happen. After all aren’t you supposed to feel healthier as a non smoker? There are a number of factors why this may happen.

Quit Smoking Hypnosis

Quit Smoking with Hypnosis

However breathing is a big factor.

You see when a person is smoking they take deep breaths with every puff from a cigarette. Once a person quits smoking, especially if it is immediate as in hypnosis, then there is no longer a need to take those deep breaths. So the breathing becomes more shallow. We would probably refer to this as ”normal breathing”. However the lungs have been used to expanding consistently over usually, many years. Suddenly stopping this pattern of deep breathing can be detrimental to a healthy future for the lungs. In fact due to the build up of tar and other unhealthy toxins in the body and especially the lungs, it is even more important to continue taking those deep breaths.

Paul was a recent client who quit smoking with the local hypnotherapist Maureen Hamilton. He was saying that he had quit smoking 2 years early with a hypnotherapist in Melbourne and 2 months later was in a hospital ICU with pneumonia. A doctor walked in and made the comment, “You recently stopped smoking?” Paul replied that he had quit 2 months earlier. The doctor then said, “Yes, plus 8 other patients in the hospital, all with pneumonia.”

What should a smoker do when they quit

So if you are a smoker and have given up recently, it is important you continue to take those 5 deep breaths as often as you can remember. So how can you remember? Hypnotherapist Maureen Hamilton suggests tie it in with when you are eating as most people eat 3 meals plus 2 snacks a day. However if you were a heavy smoker, then perhaps tie it in with when you would normally have a cigarette. When you do need to really expand the lungs to avoid complications.

Water is also very important however this and other important information regarding quitting smoking can be found on this website.

Customer Testimonials

Hi Maureen,You worked your wonders on me on the 16th of January 2013 for smoking and guess what? I haven’t had a smoke or even felt like one! It is truly amazing after smoking for over 30 years I am no longer a slave to the smokes. I feel better (although I was a bit grumpy for a week or so) but that has passed, I can breathe better and my cough has gone. But food tastes so much better so I am trying to watch what I eat. I do get a craving every now and then and it goes as quick as it come…
