Can You Be Hypnotized to Quit Smoking?

In earlier posts, we’ve been discussing how hypnosis works and how it can be applied in areas such as procrastination, weight loss, and new year’s resolutions.

In this article, I’d like to talk specifically about how I help people quit smoking with hypnosis.

How does hypnosis work?

Hypnosis is not a magic pill, but it can be a powerful tool for self-improvement and positive change.

We’ve explored how hypnosis works by rephrasing your internal dialogue, creating a positive mindset that can help you achieve your goals. Another way to understand the process, is that hypnosis taps into the power of your subconscious mind, planting positive and empowering messages, which in-turn instill self-confidence. Ultimately, this can help you control your conscious thoughts and choices.

I’ve had clients tell me that hypnosis helped them “rewire” their brain and process things differently. For example, situations that used to be processed negatively and caused stress, could now be handled in a positive way with hypnosis.

Hypnosis works by:

  • Tapping into the power of your subconscious mind
  • Rephrasing your internal dialogue
  • Rewiring the brain
  • Inspiring change from the inside out

In this way, hypnosis can help people overcome all kinds of problems, from obesity to chain-smoking, in a way that is safe, natural, pain-free, and relaxing.

An Example of Quitting Smoking With Hypnosis

One of our clients at the Greater Toronto Hypnosis Centre, is an elderly woman who had been smoking since the age of 12. She was finally able to kick the habit with hypnosis, but after quitting, she still had cravings. Every smoker knows what that’s like, and how impossible it can be to say no to them—no matter how resolved you are to quit.

Here is what hypnosis did for her:  For the first time in her life, it made the cravings manageable. They didn’t disappear, but hypnosis gave her to power she needed to control them. What an incredible difference it made in her life!

Of course, hypnosis impacts everyone differently. Other clients who have come to see me to stop smoking have said that their cravings disappeared after their first hypnosis session.

Positive Mindset

I am in charge of how I feel and today I choose happiness.” ~ Likainen Parketti

I really love this quote for many reasons; there is so much truth to it. One topic that I talk about in my speaking engagements is centered on the idea of “attitude”. Do you realize that only thing we truly have control over in our lives, is our attitude? We often get so stressed and feel anxiety over things that we have no influence over. While we cannot control how someone else acts towards us, we can control what we do when that energy gets to us. Will we absorb it? Deflect it? Step out of the way and let it go past us?…Simply put, we have the choice of what to do, how to handle it, and how we want our attitude to be.

It’s been said that when things are going really poorly, or you’re in a bad state, you should take a moment and be grateful for something. I know that can be challenging when things are bad, but finding gratitude in something (it can be as simple as that the sun is shining, or that you got up this morning breathing and alive) can be very beneficial in setting a positive mindset.

Hypnosis can be a very effective way to help get into a positive mindset. Many clients come to see me for stress, confidence and anxiety issues. One of the things I teach them is to change their way of thinking, and to be more mindful of their thoughts so that they approach situations and ideas in a more positive way.

But the one thing that is evident in all cases, is that you have to CHOOSE to have a positive mindset…or at least in the case of a new hypnosis client—choose to be OPEN to the idea of learning how to change your mindset.

Hypnosis can help you change your mindset, so that you can go through life with a more positive attitude. Call now for your free 30-40 minute screening, and see if hypnosis is right for you:  (647) 210-8842.
