How Hypnotherapy Helps
Smoking is a habit that millions of us innocently pick up when we’re young, and then spend a lifetime trying to break. Whilst peer pressure is often the main reason people start smoking in the first place, there is a unique pressure from within that prevents you from breaking a habit you ultimately don’t want to have. The secret to moving forward is to admit that you want to change, and then begin creating the personal tool kit that will make it happen.
Why Am I Addicted?
Addiction is a complex combination of the psychological and the physiological. As your body becomes accustomed to a steady stream of nicotine it will begin to crave it if your background level drops, there’s simply no getting away from that. There’s also the psychological side of things whereby you become used to the feel of a cigarette in your hand as it becomes ingrained in your daily habits and rituals. Going out for a meal, meeting friends down the pub, watching TV in the evening, all of these things become closely associated with smoking. What we need to do is begin a personal approach that will break these links.
Understanding Your Cravings
Cravings are completely normal and a combination of habit forming and physiology. By focusing on the idea of gradually breaking habits and replacing them with robust coping mechanisms you will be able to make more progress in less time than you think. It all starts with staying calm when your mind and body are telling you over and over again that one more cigarette is what is needed to restore your balance.
Calmness Is the Way Forward
Hypnotherapy offers a unique opportunity to transport yourself away to a calmer place. This new state of mind will be your go-to approach to preventing yourself from giving in to your cravings so that you can start breaking one of life’s most difficult habits.
In our first session we’ll get to know your cravings by talking about why you started smoking, and what has brought you to the point where you want to stop. There are no judgements here, only unconditional positivity that will be with you every step of the way. As we begin a journey that will culminate in breaking your addiction to smoking we’ll work together and stay positive by focusing on where you want to get to.
