If you're like most smokers I talk to, you will have tried unsuccessfully to quit smoking many times, possibly as many as seven times.
Seven is about the average number of attempts to quit smoking. In trying to quit you may have tried using patches, gum, cutting down, electronic cigarette, tablets and last but not least, using will power.
Hypnotherapy is usually the last port of call for most smokers, yet it's one of the most successful ways to quit smoking as it helps break the associations and habits of cigarettes by dealing directly with your subconscious. Have a look at the FAQ page to help you dispel some myths about hypnosis.

For many smokers it's just a habit, something they do at certain times of the day, with certain people in certain situations. Smokers who smoke out of habit often talk about how they can go for long periods without a cigarette, and they often don't experience any cravings.
One main question to consider is this - if you are deprived of your cigarettes for any extended length of time, do you become intensely anxious?
If so, then this increased anxiousness may be an increase of the constant anxiety level that is around but is controlled and reduced by smoking. For many smokers cigarettes can be the only form of relief from the stress or anxiety.
This could indicate that smoking is a compulsion and serves a purpose. The good news is that hypnotherapy can help you overcome both the compulsive and the habit elements.
Most smokers know about the dangers of smoking, these are spoken about all the time and include lung cancer, heart disease, impotence, fertility problems. But the media never lets you know how quickly the body starts to heal itself once you stop smoking, and so within:
Your body has a natural tendency towards health and is constantly looking to heal itself. As well as the health benefits, there are also the financial benefits for you to consider. If you smoke a pack of 20 cigarettes a day, you're going to be around £2400 or more per year better off, probably more when you consider how many you give to other people. I'm sure you can think of other things you could spend that on?
The first step is easy to do, decide honestly whether you really want to quit smoking, do you really want to be free from cigarettes?
Secondly, put the financial benefits to one side and consider what you'll be giving up and also what you'll be gaining by quitting smoking. What will it mean to you and your family? Here are some of the reasons others have told me, some of these may be new, some may sound familiar, you may also have other reasons.
Are the benefits enough of a motivation for you to quit smoking?
