Hypnosis for Smoking and Tobacco Cessation
This Will Be the Last Time You Quit Smoking
Are you a tobacco addict or are you looking for a smoking cessation solution for a loved one? Both situations can be very frustrating, especially when you’ve tried other solutions in the past and nothing has worked.
There are many reasons to quit smoking with health usually occupying the number one spot. Knowing the serious medical risks associated with smoking should give people the emotional strength they need to quit. However, this isn’t usually the case. Even when you know that there is not one part of your body that isn’t negatively affected by smoking, it can still be extremely difficult to kick the habit. Why? We believe we have found the answer to that question and a solution. We can actually make quitting smoking a less painful and more possible goal that you can achieve.
Stop Smoking in One Session
In most instances, we can get right to the root of what causes you to smoke. When we deal with those causes, the uncomfortable feelings you have that you call ‘cravings’ no longer occur. When you don’t crave smoking and you have made the decision to quit, there is nothing stopping you from quitting for the rest of your life. When there is no longer anything to fight, willpower isn’t needed.
The Smoking Cessation Method
We use a multi-faceted approach to smoking cessation that includes the following:
1. Addresses all aspects of your being and identifies values, beliefs, behaviors, and your environment.
2. Disconnects good feelings from the act of smoking and eliminates bad feelings that you could be using smoking to escape from (such as anxiety.)
3. Makes sure that every part of you is ready to quit. Don’t worry about being ready. If you are not ready, we will get you there.
4. Uses hypnosis to implant thoughts and feelings of being smoke-free.
5. Wraps up the session with auricular micro current acupuncture to further eliminate cravings and soothe what is left of withdrawal symptoms. Acupuncture has shown to be a great way to quit own its own, when used with hypnosis you have the combined power of the two together.
When we get all of this communicated to the right parts of your brain, problems are removed and only the solution is left. Throughout the process, we train your brain that health is the most important thing to you. We also address eating habits to keep you from gaining weight as a result of quitting. You will see that being a non-smoker is familiar to you and have a sense of peace when it comes to quitting. There are no known side effects from quitting smoking. The success rates are far higher than prescription medications, nicotine gums, nicotine patches or cold turkey. We handle the mental aspect of the smoking problem so where the pills and gums run out, your new way of thinking keeps on working in a way that keeps you free.
What to Expect
So what do we expect of YOU, and what can you expect from US as a team and ME as a provider?
All you need is a good solid decision to quit smoking. You need not worry about this working for you as we tap into your body and brain’s ability to learn new behavior. Everyone is a good candidate for our program. You can quit and remain tobacco-free.
This is a team effort between you and I. We cooperate to retrain your brain to think and act as a non-smoker. Our collaborative effort produces the outcome of you walking out of my office and never needing a cigarette, vape, or chewing tobacco ever again.
I am a hypnotist who used hypnosis to quit smoking many years ago. Hypnosis reduced cravings and withdrawal symptoms for me by about 80 percent. I have not and never will smoke again. I know what it is like to try to quit on your own, and what it’s like to be set free. It has been my life’s mission to solve the cigarette addiction problem and because of that, I have created the premier solution for you. I am the most extensively trained hypnotist in the area and I have seen thousands of smokers with a very high quitting success rate.
When you quit smoking with us, we have your back. Any back-up sessions that are needed are covered in the initial cost. If you need support in any way after you leave, we are happy to lend a helping hand. We will look forward to meeting you and working together to make you a non-smoker for life!
