Save Your Skin: The Facts About Skin Cancer

Healthy Skin now a Non Smoker

Be a non smoker and protect the skin

Your skin is your largest organ. It covers your entire body and has a surface area of around 2 square metres.

Quitting smoking is especially important because this bad habit exposes you to a variety of different cancers, skin cancer included. While most people associate smoking with lung cancer, the carcinogens in cigarettes can contribute to the development of skin cancer—the most common form of cancer in human beings.

Skin cancer can be deadly

When skin cancer it is not detected earlier it can be a real problem.  It can spread throughout the body until it essentially destroys all systems in its path. Aside from cigarette carcinogens, skin cancer can be caused by over-exposure to the sun, radiation, and ageing.

There are three types of skin cancer

  • basal cell carcinoma
  • melanoma
  • squamous cell carcinoma

All three types pose a serious risk to your health, but melanoma is the most dangerous.

Detecting Skin Cancer

Skin cancer is relatively easy to detect because it appears as skin discolouration and/or abnormally coloured or shaped moles. Most skin cancer victims discover the condition on their own just by examining their skin. A diagnosis, however, can only be made by a doctor. But the problem is not that skin cancer is difficult to detect; the problem is that people simply forget that skin cancer is a deadly threat and thus do not get treatment for their cancerous growths until it is too late.

So is there a cure for skin cancer?

A study conducted by researchers from Rush University Medical School in Chicago showed that a vaccine had been developed that was able to completely cure 16% of users infected with advanced melanoma.  For the rest of the group, the vaccine greatly improved the user’s chance of remission. Still, this number is relatively small. So banking on a cure is not the way to go when dealing with skin cancer. The best way to avoid skin cancer is by staying out of the sun, wearing sunscreen regularly and avoiding exposure to unnecessary carcinogens like cigarette smoke. Checking your skin regularly as well as Slip Slop Slap with sunscreen then slathering yourself in aloe vera and vitamin D cream also helps.

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 and why hypnosis works so well.

Quit Smoking Hypnosis Information

Congratulations on wanting to stop smoking!  To let you know what is involved with the quit smoking, I am going to go through some information including the location and price.

Information is essential so here is a link to 2 audios. The first one provides information about the process while the second one is a Stress Reduction and Relaxation Hypnosis allowing you to experience hypnosis. https://lifecoachtoquitsmoking.com/listen-to-this-audio/ – We do ask  people to listen to both of these two audio recordings before they come in for their session. It means they will be well prepared for their session.

How long does Hypnosis take to Quit Smoking

I ask people to allow 2 hours for their session. While the hypnosis takes less than an hour, you will be provided with a per-session information and education session to assist you as you move forward as a non smoker. You will also be provided with forms to fill in . You will 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.

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.

Why is it so Hard to Stop Smoking?

I am sure many smokers have asked themselves or their doctor this question.  People often say they were able to stop Marijuana easily but they cannot stop smoking. Which raises the question, is it really an addiction or a very powerful habit? Most people have managed to stop smoking briefly such as air flights or hospitalisation. So why is it so hard to stop smoking permanently?

Excuses and Reasons for Not Quitting the Smoking Habit

Making excuses and having convincing reasons, normally deter people and stop them from quitting smoking. Stress is the biggest excuse people cite to defend their smoking habit. Stress related to work or stress at home or worrying about kids, is the common reason everyone gives for smoking. Many of them smoke to relax and unwind themselves. Whereas some people just do it for fun and for pleasure. Lack of willpower dissuades them from facing situations and trying to quit the smoking habit once they have developed it.

Quit the Smoking Habit

Most people agree smoking is a very powerful habit. Our unconscious mind is like a sponge taking in information, positive or negative. How often do you hear or see information that says smoking is an addiction, such as media, articles, images or even self talk. This can be so powerful and convincing we start to believe it. When people go cold turkey, this message becomes more convincing as they feel the side effects of stopping.

Quit Smoking with Hypnosis

Understand that smoking is a habit. Yes that can be challenging however how can a person walk in to do hypnosis to quit smoking and walk out a non smoker? Because it is a habit!

Cigarettes contain sugar and we know that sugar is very addictive.  So be prepared with fruit or some other healthy option to replace the sugar. Water is going to be very important too, as smoking dehydrates the body. As a non smoker your body is going to be craving water, food and sugar.

Eat healthy to Avoid Weight Gain after Quitting Smoking

Weight gain could be an outcome so eat healthy to avoid this. The wonderful part of our body is that the energy kicks in around Day 4. So eating healthy and picking up the exercises will be a huge help to maintaining weight.  The other point to mention is once you become a non smoker you will be very hungry so be prepared with healthy food. Of course there are many other tips that will help. So do check out the other articles on this site.

If you are a smoker and want to stop, then contact Hypnotherapist Maureen Hamilton on 1300 619 684 or check out this website for more valuable information.  Maureen has helped over a thousand people to stop smoking in only one session.  She also offers a Lifetime Guarantee so if you start smoking again you come back without any cost to you – it is a win win situation.

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!

Can Quit Smoking Lose Weight

You’ve probably heard that smokers lose weight just from smoking, and that people who quit smoking start gaining weight.

If you’re a smoker, think about your other lifestyle habits. Odds are, they aren’t the healthiest choices either. Maybe your cholesterol levels are too high, or maybe you don’t get enough exercise, leading to poor metabolism and even poorer dietary habits.Quit Smoking Hydrates the Skin

If you’re looking to quit smoking to help you lose weight, or vice versa, find an accredited hypnotherapist in your area. He or she can help you develop good habits that will help you become a healthy nonsmoker!

Can quit smoking help you lose weight?

It’s widely believed that people who quit smoking gain five to ten kilos on average. Depending on the person, this can be due to overeating after quitting smoking. Many people eat more after quitting because of the oral fixation. Because the smoking habit is so deeply instilled in a smoker even after quitting, they need to replace the feeling of a cigarette in their mouth with something else, such as sucking on lollipops or crunching on pretzels. This often occurs in people who are not using hypnosis  but are giving up smoking using other methods which does not change the habit as happens in hypnosis.

Another reason why many people gain weight after quitting smoking is because of a drop in metabolism. Since nicotine raises the body’s metabolic rate, the absence of nicotine decreases it. This can cause you to gain weight if you do not change your movement or dietary habits once you quit smoking.

But—it is possible, when quitting smoking, to lose weight. Think about it! Quitting smoking for life takes a ton of dedication, self-motivation, and thought. Wouldn’t it make sense to use this opportunity to better your life as a whole, rather than only quitting smoking? Your health will undoubtedly benefit from you quitting smoking, but imagine how much better you’d feel if you quit smoking and, say, exercised for 20 more minutes each day. If you’re ready to quit smoking, take this opportunity to truly better your life and future. Check the information below.

If you are ready to become a nonsmoker and improve your life as a result, hypnotherapy is for you.

Why hypnotherapy is the right choice for quitting smoking

Hypnotherapy is unlike any other method to help you quit smoking, and it doesn’t come along with weight gain. Once you have just one session with a hypnotherapist, you are not a smoker and your habit is gone. This means you will not turn to food to replace cigarettes—the urge won’t even be there anymore.

Quitting smoking with more traditional methods, such as going cold turkey, using the nicotine patch, or taking medications, means you’ll still have to fight temptation, but quitting smoking with hypnotherapy eliminates the temptation from your life completely. You won’t wake up the morning after hypnotherapy craving a cigarette. The most important thing, however, is your commitment and “Want” to quit. If you don’t bring the want to quit to your hypnotherapy session, the treatment will not work. You also need to trust your hypnotherapist and be confident in him or her. Any shred of doubt will prevent you from becoming a nonsmoker with hypnotherapy.


So, if you want to lose weight while quitting smoking, you need to be determined to change your lifestyle and stay motivated to developing and maintaining good health. And hypnotherapy can help you do just that!

Maureen Hamilton – Hypnotherapist

Maureen Hamilton is a hypnotherapist and has helped over a thousand people to quit smoking. The experience and feedback coming from clients indicate that there are two groups of people. Group A do put on weight, on average 5 -10 kilos although very occasionally even higher. However in Group B people do not put on weight in fact quite often they lose weight. So why this discrepancy.

Note: Well Group A are probably not eating very healthy in the first place and when the energy kicks in on Day 4 or thereabouts, they don’t take advantage of that and increase their exercise. Meanwhile Group B as soon as that energy kicks in they are doing exercise and feeling healthy, breathing better and increasing their self confidence and self esteem. Most importantly they are not putting on weight and in fact quiet often lose weight.

Final thoughts

With a hypnotherapist, the hardest part about quitting smoking is finding your inspiration. Once you’re determined, you can work together with your hypnotherapist so that your future never includes another cigarette.

Why do People get Sick When They Give up Smoking

It is not unusual to hear people say “I quit cigarettes but was sick for days or even possibly weeks after quitting.

So Why do People Get Sick

There are over 4,000 toxins and poisons in every cigarette. Perhaps not huge amounts but over a period of time they do add up. The body has a blueprint of how it should be. So once a person quits smoking then the body will try to get rid of all the toxins and poisons out of your body as quickly as possible.

How Will This Release of Toxins in the Body Affect me?

For the first few days  people may feel nauseated, tired, even sad as the body goes through these changes. They may also feel quiet hungry and that is because the body is endeavouring to heal you so you can be healthy. Don’t forget there is sugar in the cigarettes too. So it is important to ensure you are eating enough healthy fruit and you only need to do that for four to five days and then slowly wean yourself back to what you would normally eat.

Why is Water So Important When Giving Up Smoking?

Those toxins and poisons (mentioned above) have to go somewhere and they will mainly go through the kidneys. So it is important to increase your water by at least 30% or if you are only drinking 1 litre of water a day, then you will need to increase this to at least two litres a day.

Here is an excerpt from an email message a client sent five days following his session:-

Hi Maureen, so far so good, I have not come even close to wanting a cigarette. I can’t believe how easy it has been and that I have only been drinking water and had good food and have not had withdrawals from any of my old habits. I must have been in pretty bad shape though as my kidneys have really been hurting. I am positive with the pain I feel I was verging on type 2 diabetes. I really do believe you saved my life. And I am over the moon about how I feel already.

My energy has to have doubled and its only day 4, I have more spring in my step and I feel more positive and bright throughout my daily jobs.

Notice he said his kidneys were really hurting. When I spoke to this chap he said he was drinking but hadn’t increased it. So water is very important so those toxins and poisons can be flushed out as quickly as possible.

What is a Big Benefit to Quitting Smoking?

The energy increases around day 4 and this is a common comment given by clients. The process used by Maureen Hamilton only requires one session. So it is important to be prepared for all the above suggestions.

Quit Smoking Inspiration

Such excitment at now being a non smoker

Happy man feeling free from the habit of smoking

Quitting a bad habit is one of the most difficult things to do, especially smoking. It is  a physically and mentally destructive habit that leaves its mark on all systems of the body. For you, quitting smoking may seem impossible. However, with the right tools, determination, and inspiration, you can quit without ever wanting a cigarette again.

However, you really need all of those three things: Determination, inspiration, and the right tools. Quit smoking inspiration comes from within, and the smoker must be driven in order to feel inspired. Maybe their family is worried about their physical or mental health. Maybe they have a family history of heart disease and don’t want to exacerbate their risk by smoking. If an addict doesn’t have the will to quit the habit, nothing will make them. While smoking is more of a habit than an addiction, it will still be fairly difficult for most people. For some, the will to quit might be sudden, and for some others it may be more gradual.

The Right Tools to Help You Quit

 Once you find your personal inspiration and determination to quit, it’s time to find the right tools to put you on the right track.

Remember: To quit, you have to be ready to quit. If you still want to smoke while you’re quitting, you are less likely to become a permanent non-smoker and more likely to cycle through relapses.

Frequently speaking with another person who has quit with hypnosis certainly is quit smoking inspiration. Mary went to see Maureen Hamilton (Hypnotherapist) to quit smoking. At the end of her session (only one) she went off a happy non-smoker. Two weeks later her son called and said, “You got Mum off cigarettes after smoking for 44 years. So I need to come and see you too.” This chap was working at the local station as a policeman.  Needless to say he also went off as a happy non-smoker. So if you’re ready and truly committed, then hypnosis will change your life so you too can be a non-smoker.

What can hypnosis do for you?

 Hypnosis is the most unique tool to help you quit smoking. It is the only one that can help you truly believe you are a non-smoker, rather than a smoker who is suppressing his or her cravings with medicated treatment. For hypnosis to be effective in terms of quitting smoking, you must first find an accredited hypnotist, and then you must trust them, and trust yourself, that the hypnosis will work.

What is the Process to Quit Smoking with a Hypnotherapist

Before you meet with the hypnotherapist, he or she may speak with you to try and gather more information, and to see if you’re uncomfortable or unsure of the process. It is their job to make sure everything goes smoothly!

By the time you first visit your hypnotherapist, you two should have an action plan all ready to go. Just like no two people are the same, no two smokers are the same. Each smoker’s experience with a hypnotherapist will be different than the next.

The importance of following up

 Once you become a non-smoker, you will have a period of adjustment, even just in terms of your lungs. In order to help you cope with this and keep you on track, you need to follow instructions about your care following your session. Only you can be in control once you become a non-smoker.

Final thoughts

With a hypnotherapist, the hardest part about quitting smoking is finding your inspiration. Once you’re determined, you can work together with your hypnotherapist so that your future never includes another cigarette.

Whether or not you’ve tried other methods to quit smoking in the past, you can find fulfilling and permanent success in hypnosis.

Can I Really Quit Smoking in 3 Weeks?

Have the healthy lifestyle with quitting smoking

Enjoy a healthy lifestyle and be a non smoker

It’s an offer you can’t refuse and it’s an offer that likely sounds too good to be true: quit smoking in three weeks? But quitting smoking in three weeks is actually a very attainable goal as long as you know how to go about it the right way.

How Can you Quit Smoking in 3 Weeks

There are three steps that you can take in order to permanently rid yourself of a smoking habit in three weeks: identifying a want, identifying a good reason and making use of hypnosis. Let’s take a closer look at all three:

1 – The Want

 To be able to quit smoking in three weeks’ time you have to have a very strong want. That is, a strong desire and then your will to quit smoking. This is a pretty simple and self-explanatory step. The old saying goes that where there is a will there is a way. Thus, without a will, there is no way to quit smoking. You may feel under pressure from well thinking family and friends to quit smoking. However while this may be helpful, you may not have that want. So think about all the negatives of smoking such as the dame it is doing to your health. Even dying at an early age  which happens quiet frequently. Hypnotherapist Maureen Hamilton had this experience with her husband dying at 47 from smoking. So it is possibly and it does happen. Perhaps think about second hand smoke and how it is affecting those around you, not only the people but also pets.

2 – A Good Reason

Most people develop a strong want to quit smoking because they have a good reason to quit smoking. There are a range of reasons why people want to quit: health, family, job or financial issues can all be catalysts for the smoking cessation process. The key is to find a reason or reasons that really compels you to put out the cigarettes. It is preferable to find this reason or reasons earlier rather than later. For example, it is much better to look into the future and decide to quit smoking before you have kids rather than wait until you have already had kids and expose them to the damages of second-hand smoke.

3. Hypnosis

 Finally, after you have identified your want and your reason, you need to find a quit smoking method. And if you really want to successfully quit smoking in three weeks then quit smoking hypnosis is the way to go. Quit smoking hypnosis will provide you with the tools you need to eradicate your emotional and psychological dependence on cigarettes. You can then learn to emotionally and psychologically gratify yourself in ways that contribute to your health and well-being in positive, life-affirming ways.

Smoking and Bone Health

arztsamui / FreeDigitalPhotos.net

Most people associate the harms of smoking with lung damage and cancer, but the tobacco habit’s negative effects on your health go much deeper—did you know that smoking can also damage your bones? The bones are rigid organs that protect the rest of your body, provide your body with structure, and allow movement. Damaging your bones means damaging our ability to move and take part in activities. Let’s take a look at some of the ways smoking harms your bones in order to keep you alert to the harsh reality of how dangerous the tobacco habit really is.

Smoking and the Hormonal System

Smoking wreaks havoc on your hormonal system which in turn wreaks havoc on your bones. Your bones need hormone balance in order to stay strong and the hormone imbalances caused by smoking cause the liver to produce hormone destroying enzymes (for example to balance estrogen levels) and this leads to bone loss—these enzymes damage the bones.

Another way that smoking damages the bones is by way of the generation of free radicals. Smoking infuses the body with an overload of harmful free radicals that kill osteoblasts which are the cells that make bones. People commonly make the mistake of misunderstanding that bones are constantly growing and require continuous nourishment.  Disrupting the bone growth and nourishment process by damaging and killing osteoblasts can lead to increased risk of fractures and osteoporosis.

What About Second Hand Smoke

Second hand smoke can be just as damaging to the bones of non smokers. It is especially vital to zone in on the damages of second hand smoke because many second hand smokers are children and they are in crucial bone development stages. Being around tobacco smoke can seriously hamper their ability to grow the strong bones they need for a healthy adulthood.

One good reason to put out that last cigarette is your bone health. Unlike many of the other damages the body incurs from smoking, healing the damage done to bones is a very slow process and some of the damage may even be irreversible. Bone density is not something that you can improve in  a week with calcium supplements.

Smoking is Abusive to Our Body

There is nothing about the habit that is good and nothing about it that is healthy. No matter how good you think cigarettes make you feel, they are really destroying you from the inside out. From your bones to your lungs, cigarettes are contributing to a shorter, less enjoyable life. If you are a regular smoker then it is time for you to seriously consider getting rid of your tobacco habit for good.

Unfortunately when quitting smoking it is important to be focused on being a non smoker. So preparation is extremely important. Going cold turkey is painful and there is an emotional struggle. That’s because smoking is a habit and you are trying a break a habit built up over years and years. The unconscious mind is there to protect you emotionally as well as physically. So that habit is keeping you happy. So changing that habit is going against your unconscious mind making quitting very difficult. This is where hypnosis comes in. Hypnosis is an easy pleasant way to become a non smoker in just one session.

Smoking and Pregnant

Impact of smoking on kids

Quit smoking before it harms your kids!

Smoking used to be cool, the coolest thing you could do. Just watch an episode of Mad Men or turn on a Humphrey Bogart flick for proof—tobacco used to be the King of suave. These days cigarettes have lost their glitz and glamour. In most Western countries, smoking is frowned upon and is quickly losing is social acceptability.

How Does Smoking Affect the Unborn Baby

Just because something is stigmatized does not make it an anti-social behavior. Many smokers would still claim that smoking is an act of community during which people can socialize and make and maintain friendships. However, recent research has linked prenatal smoking to anti-social behavior in children. If this is true, it has wide-ranging consequences for our society since many pregnant women are exposed to cigarette smoke on a daily basis even if they have made the conscious decision not to smoke themselves.

Potential Issues Due to Smoking While Pregnant

According to a study published in the British Journal of Psychiatry, a “small but significant” link exists between maternal smokers and the development of ADHD and unruly behavior in their progeny. They speculate that this has to do with the reduction of oxygen to the fetus when mother’s smoke during pregnancy, which can damage brain development as well as other parts of the body. While this claim is still quite controversial (as many psychiatrists see ADHD and unruly behavior as phenomena engendered by socialization), it is still worth pondering. How many children and the lives of those around them, are negatively impacted by the fact that they were exposed to the over 4000 toxins present in cigarette smoke? We know how fragile fetal development is and we know what cigarettes do to adult bodies. So it isn’t that far of a stretch to see the link between maternal smoking and the development of anti-social behavior in children.

What Can You do for Your Unborn Child

If you are a smoker and are considering having children or are around pregnant women, then you should seriously consider the implications of your habit relative to the healthy development of the baby growing inside you or growing inside the women around you. Children are born into this world innocent and dependent and rely on the judgment of their parents for their health, development and safety. Children are a great incentive for you to find the will power to break the chains of your tobacco habit. There are many smoking cessation methods that can help you put out your last cigarette. One method worth looking into is hypnotherapy or hypnosis to quit smoking as it helps you change your beliefs and restructure your habits—it is never too late to create a new you!
