If you despair of ever beating your tobacco addiction, why not try the gentle and effective method of hypnotherapy? Sydney based Stressfree management offers programs to help eliminate the craving for cigarettes and get your life back.
How does it work?
If you’ve ever tried to quit smoking you may have found that you can handle the physical aspect. After all, most nicotine is eliminated from your system around 48 hours after you put out your last cigarette. Curiously, this is the time when most people light up again. That’s because the mental aspect of smoking is as important as the physical side.
Most smokers begin in their teens. The usual impetus is from peer pressure or wanting to appear more mature or sophisticated. Soon nicotine addiction takes over and the smoker is hooked.
Meanwhile over the years, the smoker comes to associate smoking with pleasure and stress relief. This happens at the subconscious level. Your logical mind knows that smoking is destructive but deep in your mind, it’s associated with pleasure.
It’s these subconscious aspects of smoking that hypnotherapy deals with. It works on these destructive patterns and associations you’ve built up and replaces them with new ones.
Here’s what happens.
Firstly, your hypnotist will ask you some questions about smoking to determine your triggers, motives and habits. He can then formulate a session that’s right for your particular needs.
Hypnotherapy sessions begin with a trance induction. Your therapist will guide you into a deep state of relaxation. In this state, your subconscious is highly receptive to suggestions.
The exact form and content of the session will vary between therapists and also depend on your own situation. Your hypnotherapist will plant negative thoughts about smoking and positive ones about quitting.
He may paint a rosy picture of a tobacco free life without the stench and expense of cigarettes and the damage they cause to your health. A few sessions are all it takes. It’s a relaxing and pleasant experience with a good success rate. It’s well worth a try.
