Stop Smoking

Counselling and Hypnosis

It is never too late to Quit Smoking.

 

Whatever age you are, if you make the decision to stop smoking, your health will benefit. So the sooner you quit; the faster the body can recover and the risk of developing serious health conditions will decrease.

The time since the last cigarette and how it affects the body:

  • 20 minutes: Blood pressure and heart rate return to normal.

  • 12 hours: Carbon monoxide levels drop back to normal.

  • 24 hours: The body starts to clear out the mucus build-up in the lungs.

  • 72 hours: Breathing becomes easier and energy levels increase.

  • 1 month: Appearance of the skin improves.

  • 3 to 9 months: Lung function can improve by up to 10 per cent.

  • 1 year: Risk of suffering from a heart attack falls to about half of that of a smoker.

  • 10 years: Risk of developing lung cancer falls to about half of that of a smoker.

  • 15 years: Risk of suffering heart attack falls to that of a non-smoker.

There are other benefits to stopping smoking, such as:

  • Able to breather better

  • Live longer

  • Reduced stress

  • Improved immune system

  • Less stress

  • More Money

  • Better skin condition

Hypnotherapy to quit smoking is an effective treatment for many people. The method works by breaking negative behaviours and thinking patterns that are associated with smoking; like smoking to relieve stress.

 

It is these negative thoughts and behaviours that often prevent people from successfully giving up.

When you want to stop smoking, the main point is to change how you view cigarettes and smoking.  This can be a challenge; it won’t be easy, especially if it is a lifelong habit, and changing how you think about something can be difficult.

Hypnotherapy focuses on this change. We will support you and guide you through the motions, you are no longer alone in trying to quit. Because of this, hypnotherapy is fast becoming one of the most popular forms of treatment.

When considering hypnosis to stop smoking, the first thing to do is to make sure you are ready and are choosing to quit for yourself. Hypnotherapy for smoking has been found to be most effective when you really wants to quit and you are determined to succeeding.
