Benefits To Quitting Smoking
Benefits To Quitting Smoking
Hello I am UK clinical hypnotherapist Jon Rhodes. I am going to show you how I can help you quit smoking for good using the power of hypnotherapy. You may wish to read this over a few times in order to fully digest what I am saying.
Hypnotherapy is a tool which allows a therapist greater access to the subconscious mind. A hypnotherapist guides (they cannot force this regardless of what the media sometimes claims) a person into a hypnotic trance. A hypnotic trance is actually a very natural state of mind that most of us fall into several times every day. It is a daydream like state, that we often experience when engrossed in the TV or a good book.
Once in a hypnotic trance, the conscious part of the mind is 'tuned down' allowing for greater access to the subconscious part of the mind.
The subconscious mind is the more automatic part of the mind. It is the part responsible for your habits and urges. People don't generally want to smoke consciously. If you ask a smoker, most will agree that they don't really want to smoke. They will often cite many reasons why smoking is bad, yet they still persist. Why is this?
A big part of the reason is that consciously they don't want to smoke, but subconsciously they do. It is their subconscious minds that are driving them to smoke. Like I said earlier, the subconscious part of the mind is responsible for all your automatic urges. It will nag you over and over again until it gets its way. In a contest between your conscious and subconscious, there is only one eventual winner – the subconscious mind. Just thinking consciously that you want to quit smoking is usually not enough.
That is why you can talk to a smoker until you are blue in the face about the dangers of smoking. They will probably genuinely agree with you that smoking is bad and that they don't really want to smoke. However it is their subconscious minds that are driving them to smoke. It is very difficult to effectively convince someone to quit smoking with a conscious conversation. You need to convince your subconscious mind to quit smoking.
Of course you can consciously resist any urge for a while, but that is all you are doing – resisting. The drive remains strong to smoke, and it's only a matter of time before most people cave in. Hypnotherapy is so great at helping people quit smoking because it can talk to your subconscious mind, and convince it that you no longer need to smoke.
When most people begin smoking, they usually cough, and feeling sick and dizzy. The coughing is caused by your lungs' defence system trying to get rid of a foreign matter. The dizziness was caused because of the poison that you system was receiving.
Your subconscious mind was trying to preserve the body's delicate chemical balance by giving you signals to tell you that you were poisoning yourself. It was telling you to stop smoking. However because you persisted with smoking, your mind eventually became fooled into thinking that these levels of noxious chemicals were the normal chemical balance needed to keep you healthy. Soon messages began to be sent to urge you to smoke whenever the levels of nicotine and other poisons dropped.
So because you began to regularly disturb your chemical balance with cigarettes, your subconscious mind began to take these levels as the norm. The balancing mechanism has now been disturbed and your subconscious mind now thinks that you need to smoke in order to be normal. Your younger mind may also have been programmed by repeated hints that smoking was "cool" and makes you look more street wise and mature.
Hypnotherapy can MASSIVELY help because it can reprogramme the subconscious mind into learning that smoking is a negative thing to do. A good hypnotherapist can communicate with the subconscious mind and tell it that it should stop urging you to smoke. The person receiving the therapy may still have some urges from time to time, but hypnotherapy makes quitting far easier to achieve.
In Britain, the use of hypnosis for smoking cessation has been acknowledged by the British Medical Association as the most effective help available for those who wish to quit smoking.
