Why People Don't Stop Smoking
Most people know that by stopping they will save about two thousand dollars a year. Most know that they could add years to their life, and most know that if they stop smoking right now, they could save their health.
So, why do people continue to smoke? With more than 20 years combined experience in dealing with the mind, both in the USA and the UK, we have found the answer to be the same all over the world. It all comes down to one thing…FEAR.
• Fear that you’ll have to give up your crutch or pleasure.
• Fear that you won’t be able to enjoy life or handle stress.
• Fear that you will put on weight.
• Fear that you’ll have to go through an awful trauma to get free.
• Fear that you’ll never get completely free of the craving.
All of these fears are just examples of one overriding fear. The one simple reason that you have not stopped smoking is that you...
Fear that it is going to be
too painful and too difficult!
In fact, my unique hypnosis technique is so informative and relaxing that after only one session you’ll leave a happy non-smoker...you’ll have a sense of relief and elation that you have finally achieved what all smokers long to achieve…
You have become a non-smoker! *
When smokers try to stop with other methods they suffer misery and depression caused by the feeling that they are being deprived of a pleasure or a crutch. The beauty of hypnosis, and the way we use hypnosis in particular, is that it eliminates this feeling of deprivation. It removes the need and the desire to smoke. You won’t need useless aids, gimmicks, or substitutes. No nicotine gum or patches. No inhalers or nasal sprays. No needles or lasers. No e-cigarettes. All you have to do with hypnosis is sit back in a nice comfortable chair and relax. It doesn’t get much easier than that! **
The reason we assure your satisfaction is because we have such a high rate of success. Your success is our goal! Isn't it time to let it go?
Our Unique Approach
Since the American Medical Association (AMA) and the British Medical Association (BMA) approved the use of clinical hypnosis in the 1950’s, thousands of people have found hypnosis to be an effective way to stop smoking, lose weight, and otherwise improve their lives. Of course, there are varying degrees of success with hypnosis, because much depends upon the skill, experience, and general competence of the individual hypnotist – as well as the techniques being used by them.
The beauty of our unique approach is that we use the best of traditional hypnosis techniques, and combine them with the new science of Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), which takes hypnosis to an even greater level of effectiveness.
One of the reasons why it’s not painful or difficult to stop smoking with our method, and the reasons why it is so easy, is that we transfer the pleasure derived from smoking to a healthier habit of your choice (e.g. exercise, drinking more water, or relaxation). This is the reason why, with us, there is usually no unwanted weight gain or other problems associated with kicking the habit – the only side-effects are an increase in health, wealth, and freedom. ***
RESEARCH USING HYPNOSIS TO STOP SMOKING
* Hypnosis to Quit Smoking – One Session (Compared to Placebo and No Treatment)
Use of Single Session Hypnosis for Smoking Cessation.
Results: When they were followed-up at 4, 12, 24 and 48 weeks, the researchers found that significantly more members of the hypnosis group had quit smoking than the other two groups. They also found that among those still smoking, those who were in the hypnosis group were smoking significantly less than those in the other two groups.
Notes: This study involved 60 participants who were randomly assigned to one of three groups: one that received a placebo, one that received a single hypnosis session and one that received no treatment.
