Smoking-related illnesses are not just something people develop in old age. While smoking can be a contributory factor to many cancers, circulation problems and heart disease in later years, young women have been diagnosed with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease which can include a variety of diseases including chronic bronchitis and emphysema. These young women had smoked excessively in their teenage years. The symptoms can be as bad as lung cancer and cause breathing problems. About 30,000 people die unnecessarily young every year yet all they had to do was stop smoking.
But how do they give up addiction to nicotine, the most addictive substance on the planet? Every smoker says they can stop anytime but often find they cannot stop just by their own willpower so face cravings and horrible withdrawal symptoms. Some ask the pharmacist for nicotine replacement products eg tablets or chewing gum but still remain addicted to nicotine. Nicotine chewing gum has also been associated with oral cancer. Take your pick – lung disease possibly leading to lung cancer or oral cancer?
What if I told you that smoking can be beaten easily with hypnosis? It’s safe, natural and quick, in fact most people stop smoking in just one session and stay stopped. It is also effective. Recently a couple of chain smokers reported that they had not smoked since their single session with me back in 2009 – six years ago!!! One man told me that not only had he stopped smoking immediately but felt like he had never smoked. Hypnosis is really powerful.
Smoking cessation is even available via Skype in the comfort of your own home. The hypnotherapist will probably ask you questions about your health and lifestyle then ask about why you started smoking, why stopping has been so difficult and what are your personal reasons for wanting to stop. Everyone is different but many say:
– difficulty breathing
– reduced stamina,
– want to try for pregnancy
– don’t want to smoke around children
– health problem caused by smoking
– possible impotence
– doctor has advised you to stop smoking
– signs of early ageing
– makes you smell of stale ash
– waste of money (literally burning money away)
– prefer to spend the money on holidays, hobbies or going out
There are many reasons to give up and I cannot think of any good reason to keep smoking.
