Stop Smoking Hypnosis CDs,
Do They Work?
By Alan B. Densky, CH
The average person tries to quit smoking between four to six times before they are successful. If you have tried gum, patches, prescriptions or willpower alone with no success, make your final attempt stick with stop smoking hypnosis.
Of all of the ways to quit smoking, hypnosis is literally the easiest and has the best track record. If you are willing to consistently watch and listen to DVDs and CDs specifically designed to curb your cravings to smoke, then quit smoking hypnosis will work for you.
Many smokers believe that they can not quit smoking because of their addiction to nicotine, but that simply is not true. Medical professionals maintain that after seven to ten days—even as soon as three days—all nicotine has been cleared from the system, which leaves smokers to deal with the more difficult and far reaching emotional and psychological addiction to smoking cigarettes.
There are countless ways to quit smoking, but only one method can address both the cravings and the emotional compulsion: stop smoking hypnosis. Many people who have a strong desire to quit still end up asking themselves, "Why can't I simply stop smoking?"
The answer is clear to consulting hypnotists. The part of you that won't let you quit smoking is your unconscious mind. You can’t change your unconscious by force of will or with a gum, patch or prescription. You need the right kind of help.
In order 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 effective way to ensure that your entire psyche is working to help you stop smoking. That's because hypnosis provides a powerful way of communicating with your unconscious.
Stop smoking hypnosis helps you eliminate the urge to smoke by removing the compulsion to light up. When the urge and compulsion to smoke are removed, quitting becomes a simple decision that you can make without difficulty. The best stop smoking hypnosis programs are effective because they address the most powerful components of the smoking addiction.
The first part of an effective stop smoking hypnosis program addresses the desire to smoke for relaxation and pleasure. This pattern was actually instituted when you were a baby. No doubt, when you got cranky, your mother or father put a bottle in your mouth. Then your attention got diverted, you relaxed and likely fell asleep. People who smoke get the same soothing effect from a cigarette.
With quit smoking hypnosis, the unconscious mind is reprogrammed to achieve relaxation and pleasure by automatically replacing 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 magically disappear.
Additionally, the very essence of hypnosis is relaxation. So by listening to a soothing hypnotherapy CD daily, stress levels will quickly diminish.
The second part of an effective stop smoking hypnosis program will deal with the habituation, or the "Habit." Habituation occurs when the unconscious mind makes an association between smoking and other behaviors, such as driving or watching television. Perhaps the moment that you turn on the TV you are overwhelmed with a craving to smoke.
An effective stop smoking hypnosis CD or DVD will reprogram your unconscious associations so that watching TV, for example, actually makes you want to REJECT smoking! This is called, no pun intended, extinguishing a conditioned response.
Here is a news flash! The physical addiction to nicotine is only about ten percent of the addiction. Ninety percent of the addiction to cigarettes are the mental / emotion components that we've discussed so far. And as stated earlier in this article, medical professionals tell us that the body is clear of nicotine in as little as three days.
People who use Neuro-Linguistic Programming and quit smoking hypnosis CDs find that when their smoking associations and reliance on cigarettes to relax are have been reprogrammed, the physical addiction is actually such a tiny part of their smoking habit, that it has no bearing on their ability to quit smoking without suffering from withdrawal.
Now, I must inform you that despite the unprecedented success that clients have had with stop smoking hypnosis and NLP CDs and DVDs, you must have the desire to quit smoking prior to beginning a program. And in addition to the desire to quit, you must make an honest decision to quit. That means that you must be ready and willing to throw your cigarettes away.
Hypnosis can't be used to force you do something you don't want to do, so no program can coerce you to quit. But if you have the desire to quit smoking, and you make a decision to quit smoking, hypnosis will help you to remain comfortable and not suffer from tension, cravings, or withdrawal symptoms. Let hypnosis and NLP give you the support you need.
