Quitting smoking – “Tomorrow never comes”
How hypnotherapy helps you quit smoking
I recently had and on-again off-again email exchange with a client who wanted to quit smoking. She had been referred to New Farm Hypnotherapy by some friends who had successfully quit smoking after visiting the clinic. After enquiring about our Smoke Free program and what might be the most effective way for her to quit smoking she made an appointment for the following Tuesday. The day before her appointment she emailed and postponed for a few days and this became a pattern over the next couple of weeks and in the end, she didn’t come at all.
This is not uncommon for people who want to quit smoking, in fact, most smokers put off quitting until “tomorrow.” At the time they decide to quit, the decision seems final and it seems like the right thing to do – tomorrow. The problem is that day after day, week after week, month after month, tomorrow never comes.
70% of smokers want to quit smoking
Many insomnia sufferers turn to drugs to help them sleep and while these can be useful in the short term, some can have significant side effects both physical and psychological, and many are also habit forming. Experienced medical practitioners usually don’t recommend using medication for insomnia for more than a few days. These medications don’t actually promotes the natural sleep cycles that are restorative, in fact many clients tell us that they wake feeling ‘groggy’ after taking drugs for insomnia and feel that they can’t function effectively after taking them.
Hypnosis is the natural way to restore healthy sleep patterns
Research shows that more that 70% of smokers want to quit smoking and more that 40% try to quit in any given year so, if you are a smoker the chances are you want to quit and there is an almost 50/50 chance that you will try to do so at some time in the next 12 months.
So, is it “tomorrow” yet for you? You probably have doubts about quitting smoking and you may have tried before and not succeeded. You may feel like the time isn’t quite right. You probably also feel that there is a part of you that wants to keep smoking, a bit like wanting to hold on to a familiar habit or behaviour that once was fun but now isn’t helpful anymore. That’s okay, in fact it’s normal and that you are reading this, means that the scales are tipping in favour of your health and freedom – it means that at some level you are ready to stop smoking.
Hypnotherapy is an easy and effective way to release yourself from the power that smoking holds over you. The reason that it’s so effective is that by using hypnotherapy when you quit you overcome all three dependencies that come with smoking. The physical, psychological and habitual are dealt with allowing you to move forward enjoying better health, a great feeling of personal achievement as well as saving a lot of money. A client told me a few days ago that his pack of 40 cigarettes cost $38.40, this equates to about $1.00 per cigarette. Most people we see smoke about 25 cigarettes a day which means that quitting smoking saves each person we see more than $9000 a year. Do that for 25 years and that adds up to $225,000 or half the cost of a home.
