Hypnosis is the most effective method to stop smoking according to the largest ever scientific comparison of ways of breaking the habit”

Hypnosis is the Best Way to Stop Smoking

The University of Iowa carried out a review of more than 600 smoking cessation studies. Altogether, 72,000 people were studied. They concluded that hypnotherapy is the most effective way to stop. The Journal of Applied Psychology reported that hypnosis was “many times more effective than Nicotine Replacement Therapy” (such as gum, patches, lozenges, nasal sprays and inhalers) to help you stop smoking.

Quit Smoking with Hypnosis – Success Rates

An 85% success rate was reported for people having one session of hypnosis to stop smoking. Other “first attempt” success rates are much lower. Acupuncture has a 25% one session success rate. Nicotine gum (which has side effects) scores only 11%. Nicotine patches (also with side effects) doesn’t do much better, at 13%. On average, those wanting to quit smoking made an average of six attempts with nicotine replacement therapy before being able to stop.

Individually Tailored Treatment

Before hypnosis, you will be asked to answer specific questions about your smoking habits and why you want to stop. Your answers will determine which particular hypnosis techniques will best help you to achieve your personal goals. Everyone’s smoking habit is slightly different, and knowing which particular events trigger you personally to light up really helps in working out how to make you stop smoking. We will also give you practical tips on how to retain your motivation after leaving the consultation room, including self-hypnosis. You will also be given a CD to help reinforce the hypnosis undergone in the session.

How Many Sessions?

Whilst hypnosis can effectively help you to quit smoking in one session, if you feel more comfortable with two then this is what we’ll do. This can be particularly helpful if you smoke more than 15 cigarettes a day. But most people (even heavy smokers) give up completely after just one session. However you want to do it, we are available to support you by telephone or email. This can be between sessions or after you’ve finished.

Do You Really Want to Stop Smoking Now?

Motivation is really important! Every time a potential client contacts us, you get a free initial telephone conversation to ensure that you really do want to stop smoking, right now. If you only want to stop because someone else is pressurising you, then you’ll find it much harder to stop. The same applies if you are trying to stop at a time which is particularly stressful or difficult.

We’ll also help you work out any underlying problems which make you want a cigarette more. If you feel stressed, anxious or are struggling with emotional problems, we’ll help you deal with these. So you’ll feel happier, relaxed and more self confident, which will obviously help you to stop smoking.

Stop Smoking without Weight Gain

There’s already so much information about the health problems, costs and other difficulties smoking causes. These can be used in the hypnosis session if you want. But many people worry about weight gain when they stop smoking. What we concentrate on in the session is is up to you. It depends on what you’ve told us about your own personal reasons for smoking and wanting to give up. The treatment is individual to you and will be tailored specifically for your needs. But if you’re one of those people who worry about putting on weight as a result of having quit smoking, then your hypnotherapy sessions can also include suggestions about weight loss. This has been tried and tested many times, and has been extremely effective.
