Mind Over Matter: Smoking Cigarettes, A Force of Habit

If you want to stop smoking, you have to defeat your mind and not your body.

Smoking is a problem

Worried about Quitting Smoking?

Smoking Cessation is About Habit Cessation

The common belief about smoking over the last 50 years has been smokers are physically addicted to tobacco, particularly nicotine. While it is true that the body can become addicted to tobacco, research published in the Journal of Abnormal Psychology from Tel Aviv University confirms what many smokers and non smokers have known all along: Smoking is more of a psycho-social habit and less of a physiological addiction.

Not a Popular Theory with Smoking Advocates

While it doesn’t seem like rocket science to deduce that smoking is a habit influenced by social elements, it is not a particularly popular theory. Dr. Rueven Dar of Tel Aviv University suspects this has to do with opposition from nicotine addiction advocates: “These findings might not be popular with advocates of the nicotine addiction theory because they undermine the physiological role of nicotine and emphasize mind over matter when it comes to smoking.” Dr. Dar definitely is on to something when it comes to smoking cessation. People don’t like to think they can be in the driver’s seat when it comes to quitting. It is much easier to blame smoking on a physical addiction than it is to take responsibility for changing the habit. Smoking cessation is easier to relegate to the back of a smoker’s mind if they don’t think that quitting has anything to do with their own willpower.

Psychological Cues and Not Nicotine Cravings

Dar and his research team were able to determine that smokers crave cigarettes as a result of psychological cues and not nicotine cravings or withdrawal. They conducted an experiment with flight attendants in which they monitored their smoking behavior on flights that were 10-13 hours long and flights that were 3-5 hours long. They were able to conclude that the duration of the flight had no impact on craving levels, and were surprised to find that craving levels were higher for flight attendants that had just completed the short flight. Were nicotine as physiologically addictive, the flight attendants should have felt stronger cravings after the longer flight. The fact that the cravings had lessened or were the same after the long flight indicates that the smokers had gone longer without their habit of smoking. The longer you give up a habit, the less effect it has on you.

So what are the implications the Tel Aviv University study for smoking cessation?

Dr. Dar believes that smoking cessation techniques should concentrate on the psychological aspect of smoking rather than the physical addiction; teaching people to be cognitively aware of their actions and to learn to control their thoughts and cravings. The power to break your smoking habit lies in your hands, or maybe it would be better to say it lies in your thoughts. For Dr. Dar and many others in the fight against tobacco, mind over matter is the key to smoking cessation.

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 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!

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.

Is There a Cure for Skin Cancer?

Ambro / FreeDigitalPhotos.net

Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in humans, and it affects millions of people across the globe every year. This cancer is caused by over-exposure to the sun, radiation, carcinogens, and aging.

Types of Skin Cancer

There are three types: basal cell carcinoma, melanoma, and squamous cell carcinoma. All three pose a serious risk to your health, but melanoma is the most dangerous.

How Can Skin Cancer be Detected

Skin cancer is relatively easy to detect because it comes in the form of skin discoloration and abnormally colored or shaped moles; indeed, most skin cancer victims discover their condition on their own just by examining their skin (however, a diagnosis can only be made by a doctor).

Since many people are desperate to maintain their golden brown tans year in and year out, skin cancer remains a potent threat to public health because most people are not willing to take the link between sun exposure and UV rays and the development of skin cancer seriously. Tanning is in and trendy, and people don’t like going against the aesthetic curve. However, being an avid sun bather does not automatically lead to skin cancer, and it isn’t the only cause.

What Else Causes Skin Cancer

Skin cancer can also be caused by damaging free radicals from carcinogens and the unavoidable effects of ageing. In act some research is being done on the effect of high level in diets. Still, the best method of avoidance is to stay out of the sun or use only a strong sunscreen when out in the sun. Keep in mind that the decreasing ozone layer makes it more and more dangerous to soak up UV rays on the beach.

Is There a Cure for Skin Cancer?

As with all forms of cancer, everyone wants to know: Is there a cure for skin cancer? Last year, a study conducted in the UK by researchers from Rush University Medical School in Chicago showed that a vaccine developed was able to completely cure 16% of those who used it and who were infected with advanced melanoma. For the rest of the group, the vaccine greatly improved the user’s chance of remission. This does not definitively prove that skin cancer can always be cured, but it makes curing it an option. In addition to pharmaceutical cancers medication, there are many topical ointments that have been shown to relieve skins cancer.

Cymilium, an over the counter insect bite remedy, has been shown to improve it’s symptoms, and a variety of natural remedies such as aloe vera and vitamin D are also used. If you have skin cancer, any course of treatment you undertake should be at least discussed if not approved by a doctor. However whether you are interested in natural medicine or pharmaceutical-driven medicine, the chances of completely curing your cancer are slim, so in that sense, both sides of the medical aisle are worth a try.

Does Smoking Cause Skin Cancer?

One of the causes of skin cancer is poor lifestyle including a sugar rich diet and/or smoking. So for smoking, you may have tried many times to quit smoking and perhaps you have stopped. However after a time you became stressed or you were having a drink and thought you would just have one puff. That is waking up the habit!

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.

5 Ways to Quit Smoking

5 Ways to Quit Smoking Hypnosis

5 Ways to Quit Smoking – Check the 5th way – Hypnosis

Making the decision to quit smoking is the first and most important step in quitting smoking. Some people can go cold turkey and not feel too many side effects.  This is often due to the fact they have made the conscious decision to stop smoking. However, most people feel extreme stress and sometimes anxiety when they try to quit.  This is due to the act that they are going against their unconscious mind to do something that has been doing it for so long. It is now a habit.

What are the 5 Ways to Quit smoking

1. Make a Plan and be Committed

Have you ever been on a holiday to say for example Fiji, made the decision and all of a sudden you were there. Now that doesn’t seem feasible does it. So planning is very important and is like most things. There needs to be a plan of how you are going to do it. Then there needs to be the date. This is usually followed by doing the research and finding out the best options.

2. How are you Going to Avoid those Cravings

Be prepared for the cravings and the discomfort of quitting. What can you do to avoid it? People often find that keeping themselves busy is a good start. Think about all the times you smoke eg, when you are bored, filling in time when you have nothing to do, after meals. So give some conscious thought about these times.

However the best way to do that is to make a list in one column of the times you smoke. Then in the right column list down what you can do instead. Keep adding to this list.

Start to affect change in your mind. Stand in front of a mirror and look at yourself smoking and see how ridiculous it looks allowing a little white object to control you so strongly.

Another thing you can do is save all your butts in a jar and every now and then open it and smell it and see how repulsive it is.

3. Avoid Those Times or Places When You Smoke

Perhaps you are smoking more frequently when you are with certain people or places. If it is with certain people, let those people know what you are doing. They will understand you will not be seeing them for awhile.

If it is certain places, then possibly the best thing you can do is stay away for a few weeks until you are well on your way or more comfortable with being a non smoker

4. Stay Positive and Seek Help

Sometimes it is a good idea to share with people your goal to become a non smoker. However on the other hand it can also work against you as they persist on asking you how you are going. Sometimes that in itself can be extremely annoying and enough to make you want to give up. Of course All you need is for someone to sympathise with you and that in itself can be a trigger.

5. Hypnosis

Would you like to quit without worrying about the cravings and other effects mentioned above. Well now you can, with hypnosis. With just one easy 2 hour session you can walk in as a smoker and out as a non smoker. The only thing that is required of you is the “want”. Hypnosis will not work for people unless they have the desire to quit. They cannot quit for someone else, it must be for themselves. People often make the comment that it is like magic. So easy and relaxing.

How to Quit Smoking and Not Gain Weight

Businesswoman, now a non smoker and watching her weight

Businesswoman, now a non smoker and watching her weight

One of the many reasons smokers cling to their habit is because they believe that it is the perfect form of weight control. Unfortunately, this belief is not based in myth, but grounded in reality: smoking does cause weight loss.

How Does Smoking Help to Lose Weight

Nicotine acts as an appetite suppressant thus causing smokers to eat less. Additionally, cigarettes boost the body’s metabolic rate. Indeed, researchers estimate that smoker’s lose an extra 250 calories a day from the side effect of smoking alone.

The fact that smoking makes weight control easier is particularly problematic because it gives smokers an excuse to keep indulging in their toxic tobacco habit. Many smokers live in a world of denial, enjoying the short-term weight loss benefits of cigarettes without thinking about the long-term health damages of tobacco.

The cigarettes lead to weight loss dilemma which highlights the importance of smoking cessation assistance. Quitting smoking is not just a matter of getting rid of cigarettes. It requires a total lifestyle change. Smoking is a psycho-social habit, and along with the need for re-shaping attitudes towards cigarettes, people who quit smoking are also in need of re-shaping their approach to health and physical fitness.

Weight Gain is Not Always Associated with Quitting Smoking 

Quitting smoking does not equate to weight gain if the quitter in question is willing to create a balanced diet and exercise plan. This does not need to be complicated or difficult. Instead, people need to understand that weight management is basically built around the certain principles.

Stay Health and Eat super foods

Super foods include green vegetables, colorful vegetables, Omega-3 fatty fishes, lean proteins, legumes, brown rice, spices, herbs nuts and fruits. A diet fortified in these foods will keep a person’s body going strong (and will also mitigate the harmful effects of tobacco smoke) by way of a diversity of nutrients and antioxidants. Conversely, when people eat diets heavy in starches, processed junk food, sugar and unhealthy fats, weight gain becomes a major problem—with or without cigarettes.

Stay Healthy with Exercise

The second key principle of weight management is exercise. The body needs regular cardio activity such as walking, swimming, running, aerobics or cycling in order to keep the metabolism running, the muscles growing; exercise is also a weapon against mood disorders. Around Day 4 when the energy kicks, most people are greatly motivated to exercise.

Why do People Gain Weight When they Quit Smoking

When that energy kicks in on day 4, there are some people who ignore this burst of energy and they are the ones who put on weight. Add to that the fact they are probably not eating healthy and are more inclined to eat high levels of processed food.  When a person quits smoking they are certainly hungry as the body is craving healthy food.

How to Quit Smoking and Not Gain Weight

When the weight management pillars of super foods and exercise are combined, they keep the body in its optimal state. What many smokers who use cigarettes as a means of weight management don’t want to admit is that they don’t want to go through with creating a fully healthy lifestyle—that takes time and effort. It is easier to puff on a cigarette and keep eating unhealthy foods than it is to give up the habit and learn how to eat and exercise right. But this is a fatal excuse—habitual smoking can only lead to severe medical problems and even death. If people want to quit smoking and manage their weight, then they need to be ready to make the commitment to move their bodies and eat the right foods, In other words, they need to make the choice that is healthiest for their mind, body and spirit.

Smoking and Cardiac Arrhythmias: What You Need To Know

Smoking is incredibly damaging to the human heart. Whether contributing to heart disease, heart attacks, or other circulatory problems, tobacco smoke is a deadly poison for the cardiovascular system and it is imperative that people quit smoking in order to save their lives.

What is Cardiac Arrhythmia

One cardiovascular aspect of smoking that is discussed less often than the others is the cardiac arrhythmia. Cardiac arrhythmia is common. It is quite normal to have the occasional irregular heart beat due to occasionally wacky electrical impulses coursing through the veins. However, cardiac arrhythmia can also become chronic and may signal more serious cardiovascular problems. And chronic cardiac arrhythmia  is very often caused by smoking.

Smoking can cause cardiac arrhythmias because it is a stimulant that makes the heart beat faster and more irregularly. Chronic cardiac arrhythmias can be very uncomfortable: dizziness, shortness of breath, headaches and racing heart beats are all symptoms that can be bothersome and even alarming when occurring constantly.

Quit Smoking to Stop the Cardiac Arrhythmia

The good news is that cardiac arrhythmia can be eradicated when smokers quit; over time, the body heals and the cardiovascular system gets back on track.  In fact, quitting smoking can reduce the risk of death by cardiovascular disease by nearly 50%!

Getting rid of cardiac arrhythmias means quitting smoking, but this can very often feel harder than climbing Mt. Everest. As a psychosocial habit, the need to smoke is deeply habituated and it takes a lot of patience, willpower and commitment to quit.

Luckily, there are a variety of quit smoking methods available to make tobacco cessation easier. One such method is quit smoking hypnosis, which gets to the root of the smoking habit. It allows smokers to re-wire their beliefs relative to cigarettes so that they no longer depend on them for emotional gratification or stress relief. Quit smoking hypnosis is easy. Of course the long-term health benefits, such as reduced cardiac arrhythmia makes it definitely worth the effort.

Eczema: Quit Smoking and Quit Scratching

Eczema is an umbrella term used to cover a wide array of itchy dermatitis manifestations. Eczema symptoms can generally be mitigated and controlled, but they have a

tendency to flare up when exposed to internal and external irritants. Some of the main eczema enemies are food allergies and pollen, but many people do not realize that smoking cigarettes can actually trigger and intensify eczema symptoms as well. Hence, people who have eczema need to quit smoking in order to find relief from all the redness, itching and scratching. Let’s have a more in depth look at how and why this can be done.

The Symptoms of Exzema

As anyone suffering from the condition will tell you, eczema is no fun. The following symptoms accompany an eczema outbreak on the skin:

  • Rashes
  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Itching
  • Burning
  • Flaking
  • Cracking
  • Bleeding
  • Dryness

Though not fatal, eczema is extremely uncomfortable and unsightly; the redness and swelling often lead people to be embarrassed or ashamed of their eczema-filled body parts. Eczema cannot be cured; instead, it must be controlled by way of treatments that include various creams and ointments. Eczema treatments can either be homeopathic (herbs etc.) or mainstream (various doses of steroids).

Irritants Including Smoking Aggravate the Skin

Controlling eczema is all about keeping the skin away from irritants. Lotions, the sun, junk food, and perfumes can all trigger an eczema attack. Cigarettes are also extremely irritating to eczema, as tobacco smoke contains over 4,000 toxins waiting to attack every pore on the skin. And cigarettes not only affect smokers—tobacco smoke also triggers the eczema of people in its vicinity. This is why it so important eczema sufferers to quit smoking. Cigarettes smoke makes it too difficult to control the all the itching, burning and even bleeding and cracking.

Suggestions to Help with Ezcema

The good news for eczema smokers with a tobacco habit is that there are many ways to quit smoking. One that is particularly helpful is hypnotherapy. This is because it gets to the core of the smoking issue by helping people re-shape the thoughts and beliefs they associate with this dangerous psychosocial habit. Hypnotherapy can really help anyone who is affected by eczema quit smoking for healthier skin.

Quit Smoking and Quit Snoring

Quit Smoking with Hypnosis to Stop snoring

Quit Smoking with Hypnosis to Stop snoring FreeDigitalPhotos.net

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.

Smoking Hurts Your Feet!

Smoking hurts your feet

Most smokers are well aware of the risks associated with smoking: lung cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, emphysema and many more. But many smokers suffer from a more puzzling tobacco-induced symptom: chronic foot pain. Difficulty walking, nasty sores that won’t go away, swollen feet that can’t fit into shoes—these are just a few of problems associated with smokers’ chronic foot pain. The only way to get rid of these troublesome symptoms is to quit smoking. But before we tackle how to quit smoking, let’s first get a better understanding of why smoking makes the feet ache.

Why Smoking Makes Your Feet Ache

Smoking causes chronic foot pain because of a condition known as peripheral arterial disease or PAD. PAD is caused by the build-up of excess plaque in the arteries. Particularly vulnerable to this build-up are the legs and feet. As the veins and arteries clog up, blood has a harder time circulating through the legs and feet and this can cause pain, numbness and foot sores that do not heal. PAD is a nasty problem and smokers are four times as likely to develop it as non-smokers due to the way in which tobacco smoke ravages the cardiovascular system.

How to Avoid Aching Feet

The best way to avoid developing PAD is to quit smoking. Within hours after the last cigarette puff, the body begins to heal. It is almost never too late to mitigate smoking risks by quitting. There are a many quit smoking methods out there. A particularly effective approach to quitting smoking is  quit smoking hypnosis. Quit smoking hypnosis can be done alone or under the watchful eye of a hypnotherapist. Quit smoking hypnosis’s goal is to help the smoker create new systems of beliefs and new thought processes vis-à-vis smoking so that they no longer depend on tobacco products for psychological soothing.

Quit Smoking Hypnosis

Hypnosis gets to the root of the psychosocial smoking habit. This gives smokers the power to take control of their thoughts, emotions and habits so that these processes can guide them in a healthier direction for their bodies and minds.

Aches Pains Numbness in the feet?

Smoking is very likely the culprit. Smoking is a psychosocial habit and it will make your feet hurt—but only if you let it. The power to quit smoking rests in your hands and your hands alone.
