Smoking can be one of the most difficult habits to quit. We all know people who have gone through a “quitting cycle” (you stop, and then start, and then stop again, etc.). In fact, maybe you have experienced this yourself: First, you announce to your friends and family that you have quit smoking. You don’t touch cigarettes for a couple of days, maybe even weeks, and then you start again. Sadly, you weren’t prepared to deal with the cravings, and triggers that cause you to smoke in the first place.
Reasons for smoking are different for everyone and can range from things like an unbeatable urge to smoke after a stressful day at work, or a social environment that triggered the desire to light up again, and so on. But regardless of which, the next thing you know, you’re holding a cigarette in your hand and telling yourself that just one is fine. Then, before you know it, you’re back to your regular smoking habit. The worst part is that every time you fail to quit, success at stopping smoking seems to slip farther and farther out of reach.
Now that a new year has begun, it brings new hope! Perhaps quitting smoking has been one of your New Year’s resolutions for 2019, and this can be the year that you stop cigarette smoking forever. Let hypnosis be your pain-free, and drug-free way to quit!
Why and How to Quit Smoking
There are many ways to quit smoking: using e-cigarettes, nicotine replacement therapy, or simply going cold turkey are just a few examples. However, whether or not you can achieve success with these methods is a different story.
When you are trying to quit smoking, it helps to know “why” you’re doing it. Properly understanding the adverse effects of smoking, as well as the immediate and long-term benefits of quitting, can help motivate you. It’s also important to understand that the sooner you quit, the faster your body will benefit. In fact, the benefits of quitting will begin in as little as one hour after your last cigarette, and you will immediately be on the path to a reduced risk of cancer, heart disease, and lung disease.
Don’t tell yourself you’ll stop next month or next year, when you can discover how to quit smoking now.
