7 Frequently Asked Questions On Stop Smoking
Does hypnosis really work for quitting smoking?
When you first started smoking, you probably coughed or thought it tasted or smelled terrible, but you kept doing it. Maybe it was to be cool, or rebel against your parents, or bond with your friends. By smoking over and over again, you convinced yourself you were a smoker. In other words you hypnotized yourself into it.
These days you may be using smoking as a cue to relieve stress or boredom, or to take a break, or reward yourself. Maybe you link smoking with daily activities such as having a coffee or driving. Or you are used to smoking when you are socializing or connecting with others.
When you learn how to use hypnosis to stop smoking, you can return to the truth: you were born to breathe fresh clean air. You will also learn some healthy new ways to relieve stress or boredom, go enjoy your daily activities, or bond with others. This way you can enjoy your life as a non-smoker.
When you are sincere about stopping smoking, hypnosis is a powerful tool you can use to help you make it easy for yourself.

Does stop smoking hypnosis work?
Stop smoking hypnosis uses fixation and repetition to remind you of the truth. You were not born with an urge to smoke, you have trained yourself to smoke. You created your own triggers by smoking when you were bored, stressed, angry or nervous. Your mind now thinks of smoking as a way to deal with those unwanted states of mind.
Stop smoking hypnosis will help you re-train your subconscious mind to deal with your smoking triggers in a different way. You can learn how to manage stress, boredom or anger in other ways that are healthy for you.
At the stop smoking clinic, we hear smokers tell us how they suffer through coughing, shortness of breath, health scares, the obvious stink, embarrassment and social hassle of smoking. The amount of money smokers spend is often thousands of dollars a year on cigarettes.
Only you can decide when it is time to get smoking out of your life. When you are sincere about stopping smoking, hypnosis can help.
