Giving Up Smoking

Smokers– The Habit Can Be Broken

Giving up smoking is a positive healthy way to stay fit. The average person endeavors to stop smoking between four to six times before they beat the addiction. If you have tried prescriptions, patches, gum or willpower alone without success, make your final attempt stick with stop smoking hypnosis.

Of all of the ways to quit smoking, hypnosis is truly the easiest and has the most successful track record. If you are willing to consistently watch and listen to CDs and DVDs specially created to curb your cravings to smoke, then quit smoking hypnosis will be successful for you.

The majority of smokers think that they are unable to quit smoking because of their nicotine addiction, but that simply is not true. Medical experts maintain that after seven to ten days of giving up smoking - even as soon as three days - all nicotine has been cleared from the system, which leaves smokers to focus on the more difficult and far reaching emotional and psychological addiction to smoking cigarettes.

There are innumerable processes to quit smoking, but just one method can address both the cravings and the emotional compulsion: stop smoking hypnosis. The majority of people who wish to quit still end up asking themselves, "Why can't I simply quit smoking?"

Giving Up Smoking dirty ashtray The answer to giving up smoking is clear to hypnotherapists. The part of you that won't let you quit smoking is your unconscious. You cannot change your unconscious mind by force of will or with a patch, prescription or gum. You require the correct kind of help.

In order to quit smoking, support is imperative, but a lot of people do not understand that the best support comes from within their own unconscious.

Hypnosis is the most effective process to ensure that your whole psyche is united to help you stop smoking. That is because hypnosis provides an effective way of communicating with your unconscious mind.

Giving Up Smoking Giving up smoking hypnosis helps you overcome the urge to smoke by removing the impulse to light up. When the compulsion and urge to smoke are removed, quitting becomes painless choice that you can make without difficulty. The best stop smoking hypnosis programs work because they focus on the most powerful elements of the addiction to smoking.

The first part of a successful stop smoking hypnosis program addresses the need to smoke for pleasure and relaxation. This pattern was actually set up when you were a baby. Likely, when you got cranky, your parents gave you a bottle on which to suck. Then it diverted your attention; you relaxed and likely fell asleep. People who smoke experience the same relaxing effect from a cigarette.

Giving up smoking with hypnosis, reprograms the unconscious to attain pleasure and relaxation by automatically trading stress-inducing thoughts with calming thoughts instead, all via the use of the very same triggers that formerly made you tense. This makes the tension almost magically disappear. In addition, the very essence of hypnosis is relaxation. So by listening to a calming hypnotherapy CD daily, anxiety levels will quickly diminish.

The second part of an effective stop smoking hypnosis program will help you tackle the habituation, or the "Habit." Habituation transpires when the unconscious creates an association between smoking and other behaviors, such as driving or watching TV. Perhaps the moment that you turn on the television you are besieged with a craving to smoke.

An effective stop smoking hypnosis CD or DVD can reprogram your unconscious associations so that driving, for example, actually makes you want to REJECT smoking! This is called, no pun intended, extinguishing a conditioned response.

Here is a news flash! The physical nicotine addiction is merely about ten percent of the addiction. Ninety percent of the addiction to cigarettes is comprised of the mental and emotional components that we've looked at thus far. And as stated earlier in this article, medical professionals tell us that the body is clear of nicotine in as little as three days.

People who use Neuro-Linguistic Programming and quit smoking hypnosis CDs and DVDs recognize that when their smoking associations and reliance on cigarettes to relax have been reprogrammed, the physical addiction is actually such a minute part of their smoking habit, that it has no effect on their capacity to quit smoking without suffering from withdrawal.

Now, I must tell you that regardless of the unprecedented success that clients have had with stop smoking hypnosis and NLP CDs and DVDs, giving up smoking requires you to possess the desire to quit prior to commencing a program. And besides the desire to stop smoking, you must make an honest decision to quit. That means that you must be ready and willing to throw away your cigarettes.

Hypnosis CDs and DVDs can't be used to force you to do something you do not desire to do, so no program can coerce you to give up smoking. But if giving up smoking is your wish, and you make a decision to quit smoking, hypnosis will help you to remain relaxed and not experience cravings, tension or withdrawal symptoms. Let hypnosis and NLP give you the support you need.
