Hypnosis to Stop Smoking
Every summer, the narrow Charleston streets become crowded with tourists and people seeking the beauty of its old buildings and artisan shops. The locals take joy in the scenic views of their town, sitting on porches and balconies to soak up its wonder….including the smokers. As a former smoker, seeing them brings back your old triggers. You want to pick up a pack again, bum just one off of a friend while you’re out at the bar. Only one won’t hurt, right? You know that’s not true. You know that if you give in to the temptation, you’ll start right back up again. Hypnosis to stop smoking can help.
Uncover Your Triggers and Learn to Overcome Temptation
Seeing someone else smoke may not be your only trigger. Perhaps stress makes you want to pick up a cigarette, or when something emotional happens, when you’re bored, having your morning coffee, or sitting in the car to drive somewhere. Every person is different and that means that every person has different triggers.
- Learn what makes you want to smoke. It’s not about resisting the urge, it’s more about realizing what you really want and that’s not to smoke. Your hypnotherapist can help you get past the urge to smoke and be resolute with what you really want.
- Temptation is the next part, after your trigger is activated so to speak. You see something or do something that makes you want to smoke and the desire to do so can be overpowering. That’s the temptation and you can use hypnotherapy to get past that and not give in.
- The warm weather means being outside a lot more often than before. That’s a major temptation in itself. Summertime can bring out a lot of the smokers that have been in their homes or other indoor places before. Seeing so many of them can bring back memories of how you felt when you smoked. Use smoking cessation hypnosis to overcome these feelings so that you can continue to quit smoking.
Follow Through and Feel Good About Your Goals
Smoking cessation hypnosis is still simply one of the steps. You’re not finished when you leave your hypnotherapy sessions. After hypnotherapy, it’s up to you to use the tools that you gain in hypnotherapy every day so that you can feel good about achieving your quit smoking goal. When you quit, there’s an elation that comes in the beginning. You notice changes to your body, which may be different and feel different to everyone. However, the next part, where you have to resist the temptation to pick up a cigarette again and again is usually the most difficult. Hypnotherapy gives you the tools to think differently so that it’s not so hard to continue your smoking cessation and feel good about yourself.
