Hypnotherapy is an extremely effective way to give up smoking because it doesn’t rely on ‘willpower’. This is because Willpower doesn’t really exist, it only appears to exist when your subconscious mind agrees with your conscious mind.
When you ‘give something up’, you naturally feel deprived. If you experience a stressful day, you may think to yourself, ‘Why have I given up smoking when I enjoy it?’ At such stressful moments, your subconscious and conscious mind are at loggerheads and your resolve weakens. However, your subconscious mind can manage your habits, desires and cravings independently of your conscious efforts.
Hypnosis works because it alters the way your subconscious feels, so it ultimately agrees with your conscious mind, then, after a stressful day, you will think to yourself ‘Wow, that was a hard day, I’m glad I have more energy since stopping smoking and can deal with the stress more effectively.’
Hypnotherapy ‘changes’ how you feel about smoking so that you are no longer ‘giving up,’ which implies losing something. Instead you appreciate how your fitness has improved, how good things taste and smell, now that our senses are no longer being damaged by the chemicals you used to inhale. You will notice how your breathing becomes easier and how much more energy you have gained. As each day passes as a non-smoker you will begin to feel fitter and healthier… not to mention the money you have saved!
