How To Use NLP To Break The Smoking Addiction

The average person endeavors to stop smoking between four to six times before they are successful. If you have tried patches, gum, prescriptions or willpower alone with no success, make your final attempt successful with stop smoking hypnosis.

Of all of the ways to quit smoking, hypnosis is literally the most trouble-free and has the most successful track record. If you are willing to consistently listen to and watch DVDs and CDs especially intended to curb your cravings to smoke, then quit smoking hypnosis will be successful for you.

Many smokers think that they are unable to quit smoking because of their addiction to nicotine, but that simply is not true. Medical experts maintain that after seven to ten days – even as soon as three days – all nicotine has been cleared from the body, which leaves smokers to work with the more arduous and far reaching psychological and emotional addiction to smoking cigarettes.

There are countless techniques to quit smoking, but only one method can address both the cravings and the emotional compulsion: stop smoking hypnosis CDs. Many people who wish to quit still end up asking themselves, “Why can’t I simply quit smoking?”

For hypnotherapists, the answer is clear. The part of you that won’t let you quit smoking is the unconscious mind. You can’t change your unconscious mind by force of will or with a prescription, patch or gum. You need the right kind of help.

To quit smoking, support is imperative, but many people do not realize that the best support comes from within their own unconscious mind. Hypnosis is the most successful method to guarantee that your whole psyche is working to help you stop smoking. That is because hypnosis provides a powerful way of communicating with the unconscious mind.

Stop smoking hypnosis helps you get rid of the urge to smoke by removing the desire to light up. When the compulsion and urge to smoke are subtracted, quitting becomes a straightforward choice that you can make without difficulty. The best stop smoking hypnosis programs are successful because they address the most powerful elements of the smoking addiction.

The first part of an effective stop smoking hypnosis program addresses the need to smoke for relaxation and pleasure. This pattern was actually instituted when you were an infant. No doubt, when you got cranky, your parents put a bottle in your mouth. Then it diverted your attention; you relaxed and likely fell asleep. Smokers obtain the same relaxing effect from a cigarette.

With quit smoking hypnosis, your unconscious mind is reprogrammed to receive relaxation and pleasure by unconsciously trading stress-inducing thoughts with calming thoughts instead, all through the use of the very same triggers that previously made you anxious. This makes the tension almost disappear magically. In addition, the very fundamental nature of hypnosis is relaxation. So by listening to a calming hypnotherapy CD daily, stress levels will quickly diminish.

The second part of an effective stop smoking hypnosis program will help you address the habituation, or the “Habit.” Habituation happens when the unconscious mind makes an association between smoking and other behaviors, such as driving or watching TV. Perhaps the moment that you turn on the TV you are besieged with a craving to smoke.

An effective stop smoking hypnosis DVD or CD will reprogram your unconscious associations so that driving, for example, actually makes you want to NOT smoke! This is known as, no pun intended, extinguishing a conditioned response.

Here is a news flash! The physical addiction to nicotine is merely about ten percent of the addiction. Ninety percent of the addiction to cigarettes comes from the mental and emotional components that we have looked at so far. And as stated earlier in this article, medical experts agree that the body is clear of nicotine in as little as three days.

People who use Neuro-Linguistic Programming and quit smoking hypnosis CDs and DVDs find that when their smoking associations and dependence on cigarettes to relax have undergone reprogramming, the physical addiction is in fact such a minuscule part of their smoking dependency, that it has no effect on their ability to quit smoking without suffering from withdrawal.

Now, I must advise you that despite the unprecedented success that clients have had with stop smoking hypnosis and NLP CDs and DVDs, you must hold the desire to quit smoking prior to commencing a program. And besides the desire to quit smoking, you must make a sincere decision to quit. That means that you must be ready and willing to throw away your cigarettes.

Hypnosis CDs and DVDs can’t be used to force you to do something you don’t wish to do, so no program can coerce you to quit. But if you have the wish to quit smoking, and you make a decision to quit smoking, hypnosis CDs and DVDs will help you to remain at ease and not endure withdrawal symptoms, cravings or tension. Let hypnosis and NLP give you the support you need.
