We all know how difficult it is to change a habit, never mind dealing with an addiction. Smoking is an addiction on many levels – on physiological, chemical, mental, and emotional levels. Have you tried using willpower, only to fail a day or two later? A nicotine substitute that you then became addicted to or, worse yet, the second you got off you were right back where you started: smoking cigarettes.

Hypnosis is a whole new way to win the battle against cigarettes. One that The American Cancer Society endorses and proven to be one of the most effective smoking cessation tools available today.

How Does Hypnosis Work for Smoking Cessation?
  • Hypnosis allows you to understand why you smoke. Is it just a habit that’s turned into an “addiction” – or are you trying to numb some emotions in the process?
  • It allows you to fundamentally understand the damage cigarettes do to your body and set your mind to a state of self-care that is completely inconsistent with smoking or poisoning yourself in any way.
  • All habits start as conscious thought. You decided to try that first cigarette. Hypnosis allows you to go back and change that initial thought – essentially erasing the habit at its origin.
  • Hypnosis literally allows you to change your identity from a smoker to a non-smoker. As a non-smoker, you don’t think about or crave cigarettes. You’re not bothered, aside from the disgusting smell, when people smoke around you. You are a non-smoker with the mentality of a non-smoker. Free at last.
  • Hypnosis enables you to boost your immune system, helping you flush toxins from your body at a rapid clip, so you experience minimal if any side effects.

Supporting Research
Hypnosis Most Effective Says Largest Study Ever: 3 Times as Effective as Patch and 15 Times as Effective as Willpower.

Hypnosis is the most effective way of giving up smoking, according to the largest ever scientific comparison of ways of breaking the habit. A meta-analysis, statistically combined results of more than 600 studies of 72,000 people from America and Europe to compare various methods of quitting. On average, hypnosis was over three times as effective as nicotine replacement methods and 15 times as effective as trying to quit alone.

90.6% Success Rate for Smoking Cessation Using Hypnosis.

Of 43 consecutive patients undergoing this treatment protocol, 39 reported remaining abstinent from tobacco use at follow-up (6 months to 3 years post-treatment.) This represents a 90.6% success rate using hypnosis. University of Washington School of Medicine, Depts. of Anesthesiology and Rehabilitation Medicine, Int J Clin Exp Hypn. 2001 Jul;49(3):257-66.
