More information about quitting smoking
There is no doubt that cigarettes are highly addictive. Even if you want to quit smoking you’ll have had great difficulty because the body desires the effect of nicotine, that is the changing levels of dopamine and nonadrenaline levels in the mind. Normal solutions such as patches, chewing gum and even nasal sprays may not suit you or have been unsuccessful. Some people have chosen the e-cigarette as an alternative, yet even the e-cigarette, normally stated to be harmless has been reported in the media to have an adverse health effect on the body due to the fact that you are still breathing in heated toxic substances into the lungs.
In the majority of cases it will take only one hypnotherapy session to quit smoking. Success rates are at approximately 80%. This therapy works so well because we are aligning your conscious decision to stop smoking with your subconscious, thus in changing the thought process behind smoking. When people use their willpower alone they will experience mood swings, bad temper, cravings and weight gain. Yet with hypnosis, you will find a quick and easy way to eliminate any desire to smoke.
