To understand how hypnosis helps you stop smoking, let’s examine hypnosis first. It is a state of relaxation and focused concentration during which a person becomes more open to beneficial suggestions. This focused (or trance) state helps people to change unwanted behavior. You are never asleep or unconscious. You are in a natural state of trance. Hypnosis is a means of talking directly to the subconscious mind. When used to quit smoking, hypnotic suggestions are given to the subconscious mind to convey the desire to stop smoking.
The subconscious mind is where all our beliefs, emotions, habits, and addictions live. The reason most people fail to stop smoking is that they try to consciously stop smoking. This approach doesn’t work because our conscious mind is only 10% of our brain-power, and our subconscious mind is 90% of our brain-power. With those statistics, you can see the subconscious always wins.
When you use direct communication with your subconscious mind, your desire to stop smoking becomes much easier and more effective to remain smoke free.
The Keys To Your Success To Be Smoke Free
Strong Desire to Quit Smoking.
First and foremost, you must first want to quit for yourself. This doesn’t mean you might want to quit because your spouse or family want you to stop. Those may be reasons you ‘think’ you want to quit, and your family and friends may have your best interests at heart. However, if you want to quit smoking permanently, you must be at that point you are sick and tired of being sick and tired from everything related to smoking.
How can you determine if your motivation is strong enough? On a scale from 1 to 10, ask yourself, “How much do I want to quit smoking”? If your desire and motivation is not at least an “8”, you are not ready to stop.
Your hypnotist cannot make you quit smoking. Ultimately, your success depends on your level of motivation and taking responsibility to quit.
Along with a strong desire to quit, you must be ready to do whatever is necessary to quit smoking. This includes going through any reading or audio materials that your hypnotist may assign for you to complete between appointments.
Having a positive attitude changes your beliefs. Believe in yourself and your ability to quit smoking. Expect to succeed, and you will. Hypnosis is a great tool to help make the transition easier. With a trained hypnotist, you can become smoke free without the side effects commonly seen in other methods.
