Eliminate Your Cigarette Habit with Hypnosis for Smoking
Smoking tobacco can be one of the hardest habits to successfully quit, especially if you are trying to do so without the appropriate support. Many smokers have developed patterns, habits, and behaviors centered around the act of smoking which might make it easier to relapse. These behaviors can become triggers, and the absence of nicotine during those occasions may lead to irritability and high-stress levels, making it harder to continue the abstinence from smoking.
Quit smoking hypnosis is focused on helping people drop the unhealthy habit of smoking cigarettes or other tobacco product addictions such as chewing tobacco or cigars. Hypnosis offers natural, effective techniques that help you to change behaviors, habits and self-beliefs. Whether you choose to learn self-hypnosis or visit a trained hypnotist, you’ll find your challenges and goals easier to address. Hypnosis offers freedom from any unwanted physiological responses to your thought patterns. You are literally training and allowing your body to walk around in a mental story. Hypnosis is a tool for changing that story.

How Does Hypnosis Help with Stopping Smoking?
Although the practice of hypnosis has popularity as a form of entertainment and mysticism, hypnosis philosophy has deep roots in research, science, and results. The use of ‘mind control’ is fictional, as hypnosis begins with the wilful participation of the subject. Trust and gentle guidance are used, rather than ‘control’. The client can only do what they are comfortable with, and fear is a limited motivator.
Hypnosis is an incredible tool that can be used to overcome a variety of challenges, including quitting smoking, vaping and other addictions. Hypnotherapy allows you to tap into the subconscious mind and use positive suggestions in order to develop the techniques and resources necessary to maintain healthier habits. Either on your own in self-hypnosis or with a trusted hypnotist, you’ll explore ways to:
- Rewire old habits
- Boost motivation
- Establish reasons to quit
- Control cravings
- Develop healthier behaviors
- Create a quit plan
- And more
Hypnosis for smoking cessation has repeatedly been proven to effectively release smokers from the addictive grip of nicotine. The techniques that you or your hypnotist choose to use will be personalized to your specific goals and preferences. This means that each time you apply hypnosis, you’ll be in tune with your own needs and more likely to experience long-lasting change.
Hypnotherapy can be practiced in conjunction with other smoking cessation programs, nicotine replacement therapies, support groups, etc. However, the end goal is to eliminate your nicotine dependence. Physical addictions are fed by our physiology, brain chemistry and stress levels, which hypnosis helps you address in a natural way.
The Benefits of Using Hypnosis to Quit Smoking
Few people would argue in favor of the health benefits of cigarette smoking, yet approximately 31 million U.S. adults smoke, according to the CDC, and many reportedly want to quit. It can be a long road, however, between the initial thought of quitting and actually succeeding. The average number of attempts before permanently giving it up is 8 to 11.
That's a testament to just how addictive cigarette smoking is. Smokers continually seek the satisfaction that nicotine provides through the release of dopamine in the brain. You may have tried to quit several times, but the physiological and psychological withdrawal symptoms are extremely potent.
- Abdominal pain
- Sleep problems
Hypnotherapy techniques allow the subject to address these symptoms at the root, in order to quit smoking for good. The activation of the subconscious mind allows the subject to visualize and step into a desired outcome, boosting their ability and desire to quit nicotine. Hypnosis can help to promote a greater sense of well-being overall, rather than in just one area of our lives. Many clients report more frequent experiences of better sleep, more mindful presence, natural confidence, and increased energy levels after participating in hypnosis.
Motivation for change and a willingness to participate are the first steps to effectively using hypnosis for smoking cessation. There is no wrong way to approach hypnosis techniques, and by its nature there are no negative side effects from the use of hypnosis.
