Hypnotherapy For Smoking Cessation

Hypnotherapy For Smoking CessationSome smokers may be more likely to quit smoking with hypnotherapy than using other smoking cessation methods. For these smokers one hypnotherapy session is more likely to help than nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) alone or quitting "cold turkey".

When you say, "Quitting is so hard, I just can't imagine I will ever be able to stop", you are asking you body to crave a cigarette. Instead, you should close your eyes, relax, and imagine yourself in a future when you no longer a smoker. Make it as real as you can, adding in a visual experience as well as the sounds, the smells, the emotions, etc.

Spend time in your fantasy future, take a trip on your future time line to a time when you have completely forgotten about smoking, and then let yourself look back on the time line and remember how easy it was for you to stop. Now, let yourself really feel the freedom you have. Feel that you no longer are owned by cigarettes, that your thoughts are your own, that you are free to choose what you want to do and where you want to go, without cigarettes coming into your thoughts. Spend lots of time here in the future, and let your mind take these future resources with you to your present day.

Any time you think you want a cigarette, stop, and remind yourself that the urge will be gone in a moment. Do not say you won't want a cigarette, or you won't want to smoke. Use words like satisfied and comfortable that describe the way you want to feel. Drink a big glass of water. Take three very deep slow breaths. Close your eyes, tell yourself that when you exhale on the third deep breath you will feel completely satisfied, and tell your brain to access a new feeling. It is possible that even with these simple self-hypnosis sessions, water, and oxygen, your positive future image of being a nonsmoker will become your present. Also welcome to use links to some great hypnosis products available on the market at the left.
