Making Use of a Hypnotic Approach to Quit Smoking
An estimated 114,000 people die annually in the UK due to smoking related ailments; such as smoking associated types of cancer (lung, bladder, pancreatic, stomach, colon, head & neck, and more), cardiovascular illnesses, and chronic lung diseases such as emphysema.
In spite of knowing the risks, numerous smokers find it difficult to quit. They frequently try a variety of times, yet constantly unable to give up smoking long term. People smoke for several reasons – perception of stress reduction, monotony, as a social thing or maybe just out of pure habit. There are numerous reasons why people like to smoke; some believe that it reduces stress, lots of people simply like the social aspect of it.
Were you to give up smoking cigarettes today, in just 2 weeks from today your circulation and lung function should have improved; in 5 years’ time your chance of stroke should drop to that of a non-smoker; in 10 years’ time the likelihood of developing lung cancer will have dropped to 50 percent of that of a smoker, and in fifteen years’ time your risk of coronary disease should be the same as a non-smoker.
Why is it very hard to get rid of smoking?
Research published by the Journal of Applied Psychology shows that hypnosis is 3 times more efficient at enabling someone quit smoking than nicotine replacement, and 15 times more effective than using will power alone. Studies have shown that nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) and willpower aren’t the most effective methods if you would like quit smoking; actually, hypnotherapy has been described as being respectively 3 times and 15 times better.
Physical dependence on smoking normally plays a rather small portion in the overall dependence. Smoking dependence is frequently not the most difficult aspect of smoking to get rid of. So it is no wonder that nicotine patches frequently fail to cure smokers of their dependence in the long run. With the focus on the physical dependency, the mental addiction to smoking stays unresolved, and thus your instinctive behaviour is likely to dominate again and it’s not long before you go back to your old strategies.
How can a hypnotic approach help?
With the correct help, getting rid of smoking doesn’t have to be tough. Giving up smoking doesn’t have to feel nearly impossible if you find the proper support. By coping with the root of the problem, the hypnotherapist can help free you from your unconscious yearning for cigarettes using powerful imagery and positive suggestion.
Not only does this provide enormous health benefits to the smoker, but also for their family and others around them who could have been at the receiving end of countless amounts of second-hand fumes.
