Many people start smoking at a young age because they think it is “cool,” or because all their friends are smoking. They rarely think about the negative effects it will have on their health and bank account. By the time they realize the dangers, they are already addicted to nicotine. Nicotine stimulates brain receptors to release dopamine, which causes a pleasure response. Over time, nicotine receptors increase in number, changing the brain’s anatomy. When smokers try to quit, their brains’ pleasure response shuts off. Without nicotine, they experience withdrawal symptoms. Which means they just can’t Quit Smoking.
Tobacco can be deadly, as everyone knows, but nicotine is very addictive. Even if someone wants to Quit Smoking, it can be hard to quit without help. Many smokers first seek support from family, friends, doctors, or maybe a telephone quit-line. Some turn to nicotine replacement therapy with inhalers, nasal sprays, patches, or gum.
These smoking cessation methods may work for some people, but not for everyone. Some smokers turn to hypnotherapy when nothing else works. Hypnosis can have excellent results. The subconscious mind is open to suggestion and adaptable. Hypnosis can effect change deep within the mind, where smoking habits form. It works because the urge to smoke often takes place at a deeper level than the conscious mind understands.
Hypnosis is a natural state that enables smokers to relax. It teaches them to release negative associations and holds on their life. Hypnotherapy can be used alone to Quit Smoking, or it can be integrated with nicotine therapy and self-hypnosis.
Each smoker is unique, and every situation is different. Smokers must find the cessation method that works best for them. The most important thing is that they Quit Smoking, and hypnotherapy can help. The result will be more money, improved health, and a better quality of life.
