NLP Can Aid You To Quickly Kick The Smoking Habit

If you are one who is trying to quit smoking cigarettes, you know how difficult it is to break this harmful addiction. It is possible however, and half of all adult smokers quit smoking forever. Many smokers have successfully quit smoking cigarettes by replacing them with new, more positive habits without having to experience withdrawal symptoms. By far, the easiest, most effective method to stop smoking and achieve this end is hypnotherapy.

Hypnosis for smoking cessation is one of the most regularly practiced forms of hypnosis. It is often cited as a tool to quit smoking along with strategies such as nicotine replacement therapy and other popular methods. It works to end the smoking addiction by combating cravings to smoke, motivating you to stay committed to quitting, and promoting relaxation and stress relief so you will not be tempted to smoke.

The smoking addiction contains both physiological and psychological components. The physiological addiction is a physical need the body acquires for nicotine. This aspect of the addiction is what causes the physical withdrawal symptoms that make it seem near impossible to stop smoking. However, this is a short, temporary part in the overall progression of quitting smoking, lasting only between three days and one week. By the end of this period, your body adjusts to regular, nicotine-free functioning. Based on thirty years of experience, I believe that the physical addiction to nicotine represents a mere ten percent of the addiction to cigarettes.

By far, the most challenging part of quitting smoking is overcoming the psychological addiction, which are the mental and emotional aspects of smoking. I believe this makes up ninety percent of the cigarette addiction. When you develop a smoking habit, you develop an unconscious desire to smoke in certain environments, such as before going to bed. This is called a conditioned response. Stop smoking hypnosis works to eliminate the unconscious associations that cause you to crave cigarettes, thereby eliminating the conditioned urge to smoke. Hypnosis also helps you stay motivated to give up smoking by reinforcing the ideas that gave you the wish to break the smoking addiction in the first place.

Smokers get stuck ritually lighting up and smoking. This is why many people who attempt to stop smoking using nicotine gums or patches alone are unable to quit. They rapidly overcome the physical withdrawal, but they have no replacement or relief for the ritual of smoking cigarettes, which has become a habit and comforting source of stress relief. Self hypnosis techniques eliminate this mental addiction and serve as stress reducers as well. As a relaxation tool, hypnosis helps effectively relieve anxiety and stress so you will lose the cravings for cigarettes.

Combined with some effective NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) techniques, stop smoking hypnosis can keep you motivated to kicking the habit by training your unconscious mind to focus on the benefits of quitting. Eliminating tobacco benefits you in numerous ways. Within days of quitting, body parts damaged by smoking begin to heal, damaged nerves re-grow, and the sense of taste and smell improves significantly. Within weeks, circulation and lung function improve. Within a year, your risk of heart disease is less than half that of a smoker. Within five to fifteen years, the risk of having a stroke is the same as a non-smoker. Your risk of heart disease is the same as someone who has never smoked at all, and your risk of death from lung cancer and numerous other cancer risks have decreased.

In spite of the harmful effects of smoking and the benefits of quitting, some smokers never overcome their unpleasant addiction. For the most part, this is because they have never seriously committed to quitting. Other smokers are afraid to suffer from withdrawal symptoms or let go of the smoking habit. However, quitting smoking does not have to be the torturous process that makes so many smokers reluctant to even attempt quitting. Hypnosis is a very simple, natural technique for quitting.

Stop smoking hypnosis is a powerful tool for curbing cravings for cigarettes, providing powerful motivation, and promoting relaxation and stress relief to completely eliminate the psychological addiction to smoking. Stop smoking hypnosis techniques can be easily learned from specialized self-hypnosis programs that have been developed after decades of using hypnosis, Neuro-VISION video hypnotherapy, and NLP to help clients stop smoking.

Hypnosis programs make it easy to stop smoking for good because they break the smoking addiction in a process that helps eliminate cravings and the desire to smoke. Whatever your motivation is for breaking the habit, hypnotherapy makes it easier to focus your mind on these reasons, which makes you feel a strong urge to quit. Stop smoking hypnotherapy programs eliminate the compulsion to smoke. Although quitting smoking can be an unsuccessful and painful experience for some, those who utilize hypnotherapy have a far greater rate of success because it makes the process a ‘slam-dunk’. Hypnosis is the most effective method for smoke cessation.
