How Hypnotherapy Can Help You Break the Addiction
If you are a smoker then you’d probably agree that smoking is a difficult addiction to break. Perhaps you’ve tried other stop smoking methods such as patches or vaping and had no luck. If you’ve been smoking for a very long time, you get so used to tobacco that the thought of quitting alone could already make you feel sick.
Smoking is the biggest cause of death and illness in the UK. Tobacco kills around 8 million people each year, according to the World Health Organization, and 7 million of those deaths are from direct smoking while 1.2 million are from second-hand smoke. There is no safe way to smoke tobacco. With cigarettes containing 600 ingredients that release 4,000 chemicals when burned, smoking is the most common “preventable cause of death” according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Many people manage to quit smoking without hypnosis, they use strong willpower, nicotine replacement or other drugs such as Zyban; however when people quit smoking with these tools, they often never lose the desire, how often do you hear an ex-smoker tell you years on they would love a cigarette and it is still a struggle not to have one?
Have You Tried to Stop Smoking Many Times Before?
According to experts, quitting smoking can already add more years to your life. When you break this addiction, you start to feel more energized because of lower levels of carbon monoxide in the body. You’ll also notice that your skin looks better and that you get to increase your lung capacity by up to 10% so you can breathe easier. Smoking cessation also boosts your immune system and makes you feel less stressed.
In addition to the health benefits, once you quit smoking you will also have more money in your pocket! Many smokers who smoke a pack of 20 cigarettes a day at roughly £8 a pack, could save over £2500 in the first year alone of being a non-smoker.
By making the decision to live your life as a non-smoker, you will:
- Chose to increase your life expectancy by 10-11 years
- Reduce your chances of developing certain tobacco related illnesses or diseases
- No longer be exposing your friends and loved ones to harmful toxins
- Save money
- Improve your appearance and smell better
- Sleep better

Become a Non-Smoker with Hypnosis
“Giving up smoking is the easiest thing in the world. I know because I’ve done it thousands of times.” Mark Twain
Giving up smoking without any support can prove to be a difficult task for some people. For others, quitting is the easy part; it’s the ability to remain a non-smoker which is the challenge. The aim of using hypnosis is to make it easier to stop than you would normally expect. The side effects often experienced when stopping smoking (cravings, becoming irritable or substituting) are minimised and often eradicated completely.
Hypnosis is an effective treatment for people who wish to stop smoking and it instills a new set of belief patterns for the client. Smoking is by and large a psychological addiction. Someone who smokes 80 cigarettes a day will often sleep happily throughout the night, yet when they wake up, all the self-programmed associations begin to kick in; Cigarette with first drink, cigarette in car on way to work etc.
Research shows that stop smoking hypnosis is three times more effective as a tool to stop smoking than nicotine patches and other medications. Since the habit of smoking is mostly in the mind, hypnosis helps you to imagine a life without smoking and set your mind to the many benefits that you get to enjoy once you stop your addiction. Hypnosis is the tool that differs from the rest because it removes the subconscious desire, the ingrained longing for a cigarette that the addiction gives you, and leaves you completely free from the addiction.
