Stopping smoking

Thinking of giving up the cigarettes? It's easier than you think.

When you smoke, it's not usually for a love of the taste or the smell of the cigarette. It's not even for the nicotine. You do it because it has become associated with a nice feeling of some sort, and that is what your “cravings” are actually for. Perhaps it’s relaxation, or just that self-indulgent "me" moment we all need from time to time, or maybe an excuse to escape work for a few minutes - but whatever it is, it feels good. Nicotine gum and patches don't let you keep that good feeling - hypnosis and NLP do. Imagine being able to feel that feeling just because you can, and then being able to access that good feeling instantly. There is no reason to smoke any more. That's what I teach - and it's surprisingly simple. 

Hypnosis is used to install this into the subconscious mind; the place where habits and other learned behaviours reside. The whole process takes about 90 minutes. The hypnotic part of the session, which is specific to you, is recorded and burned on to a CD for repeated listening over the next two weeks so the new habit is quickly put in place. You are now in control of your own feelings. There is no longer any need for a cigarette to achieve the feeling you were craving. It is easier and needs a lot less willpower than you think.
