Firstly, why do you want to stop? We all have different reasons!
Are you fed up with stinking like an ashtray? Are you afraid of an extra risk of cancer? Do you want to improve your health / breathe easier? Is it financial reasons? Are you embarrassed about having stinky breath? Are friends and family nagging you? Are you worried about aging prematurely. Is it inconvenient standing out in the cold and rain? Do you feel controlled by fags?
If you have tried to stop before, do you know why it didn’t work?
Was your will power not strong enough? Peer pressure? Were you stressed? Angry? Fed up? Did alcohol play a part? Are you making excuses?
Are you scared to stop?
Most people are afraid to stop smoking – what if you fail? What if you succeed? These fears cause you to sabotage any attempt to stop. Do you worry about what you will do with your hands? What if I get stuck in a traffic jam, what will I do if I don’t smoke? How will I deal with stress? How will it change me? It’s what I have always done? You can overcome these fears if you understand them – you will find a way to work it out.
If what you are doing isn’t working, then do something else!
For example, if taking nicotine doesn’t help you to stop smoking, taking nicotine some other way isn’t likely to help you stop smoking either. The physical habit of smoking will not be replaced by a nicotine substitute.
What is the best method for me to stop smoking?
We are all different and so certain methods will be successful for some and not for others. So, if your friend stopped by using the conscious act of willpower, this does not necessarily mean it will work for you or if you know someone who succeeded with hypnotherapy, that doesn’t necessarily signify it is the right therapy for you (but of course it might be as hypnotherapy has one of the highest success rates in stopping smoking!).
Choose the right hypnotherapist for you
There are many people out there promising they can stop you smoking. The only person who can stop you smoking is YOU. A therapist can HELP you to stop smoking. When choosing the right therapist for you, check their qualifications.
