Can't Get A Second Date -
Could Smoking Be An Issue?

like her (or him) so much that you are sure you would like to go out again. In
fact, you think this person might just possibly be the one. But when you ask for
a second date or a phone number, your date smiles and says, "Good
night." And walks away from you.
thought the night was going perfectly. You found a special restaurant that
played the perfect background music, and dinner talk was relaxing and enjoyable.
Your eyes kept meeting, and you were just sure that you two had hit it off. Then
dinner was over, and you stopped to have a quick cigarette before getting into
sad truth is, most non-smokers just don't like kissing ashtrays. And, frankly,
kissing someone who smokes tastes nearly as bad. Smoking is a major turnoff, and
a bad habit that most people just won't tolerate. In fact, dating sites even
allow users to filter out smokers from their searches for that Mr. or Ms. Right.
majority of people who smoke are aware of this and try to hide their annoying
addiction from other searchers by listing themselves as non-smokers. The first
meeting, however, gives them away. And the search begins again.
how much of a problem is smoking when it comes to relationships and marriage? In
fact, smokers are 53% more likely to divorce than non-smokers. This holds true
for people of every age, social class, and ethnic background. Researchers state
flat-out that smoking is a risk for divorce and marital problems. They also
encourage a person who is dating a smoker to think long and hard before
committing to marry someone who smokes.
you have found that, over and over again, you
aren't getting a second date or having trouble starting a relationship,
perhaps you are ready to quit smoking. Although people decide to quit smoking
for a variety of reasons, if you quit smoking because of concerns with romantic
relationships, you are far from alone.
most smokers start searching for ways to quit smoking out of concern for the
health of their family. There are many ways to quit smoking, and one of the
easiest ways is through the use of a specially formulated hypnosis program.
Hypnosis programs for quitting smoking are developed specifically to help
smokers quit smoking without having to suffer from withdrawal. They are
particularly useful because they help smokers beat the psychological aspects of
the addiction, which are the hardest aspects to overcome. The smoking habit is
10% physical addiction, and 90% mental addiction.
programs are developed to teach people self-hypnosis
techniques to help stop smoking. Even when a consulting hypnotist is the
agent that guides a client into the hypnotic state, it is still considered
self-hypnosis because hypnosis is an ability that is within the client.
the best things about such a program is the fact that smokers learn how to quit
smoking without feeling withdrawal symptoms. Hypnotic techniques can reduce or
even eliminate withdrawal symptoms associated with quitting smoking. Another
great thing is that since people are taught how to practice self-hypnosis, they
don't have to worry about relapsing. If they ever feel the urge to smoke, they
just use the techniques that allowed them to quit in the first place.
produces many effects to help
people quit smoking. It is an excellent tool for eliminating tobacco
cravings while also functioning as an aid to reduce stress and tension and
increase one's overall level of relaxation. It is this inducement of tranquility
that eliminates the ex-smoker's need to substitute food in place of the missing
cigarettes. It also is a tool, which can re-program the unconscious mind to
eliminate the psychological urge to smoke. This variety of effects gives
hypnosis its success in helping people to permanently stop smoking.
of the benefits of quitting smoking include better health. And since the effects
of secondhand smoke can make one just as ill, better health for friends,
co-workers, and family can be at hand as well. Those who want to stop smoking
for the sake of their families turn to self-hypnosis because it is an effective
and non-invasive tool for ending a smoking addiction. While many people recruit
the help of a consulting hypnotist, office visits can be fairly expensive.
Fortunately there are a few high quality professional programs available on CD
and DVD. Besides being more affordable, this method has a high rate of
effectiveness because it makes the process of quitting smoking so much easier.
And the CD's are always there for reinforcement if needed.
