What if, after years of lighting cigarette after cigarette, you can just stop smoking? We’re not talking about quitting cold turkey and then breathing in as much noxious smoke as you can after a few days to compensate, no. This is stopping for good, as in no matter what, you’ll never light another stick again. Sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it?
But it’s not!
I can see you rolling your eyes. After all, you’ve tried everything – vapes, nicotine patches and gum, maybe even just your iron will alone – to no avail. So, what else could possibly be out there? What method have you not yet attempted in order to be rid of cigarettes once and for all? The answer is hypnotherapy!
Hypnotherapy isn’t an unheard-of means to quit majority of addictions, smoking included. In fact, hypnosis, which is primarily used in hypnotherapy, has been around since the late 18th century. It’s a tried and tested method that helps with a variety of issues like pain management and sleep disorders, to name just a few. But how does it work in relation to quitting cigarettes exactly?
Before we break down just how it can help you stop smoking, let’s first look at the two levels in which human brains function.
The Conscious and Subconscious
The conscious part of your brain influences the behavior you are aware of: you know that smoking is harmful and is therefore something you need to stop doing, but then find yourself unable to. This is because of your subconscious mind, the part of your brain that controls beliefs and habits. The more you do something, the higher the chance that your subconscious will integrate it as part of who you are. That being said, with much rinse and repeat combined with the chemical effects of smoking, no surprise.
You eventually start identifying as a smoker.
Now here’s another thing – between the two, it’s your conscious mind that responds to logic. In contrast, the subconscious simply focuses on meeting your needs with little regard to anything else. So, if you’ve made a habit of smoking a cigarette in order to feel more relaxed, even while logically knowing it’s bad for you, your subconscious then goes, so what? You want to relax now and, based on previous experiences, only smoking can instantly help you achieve a relaxed state.
That’s when you shake a stick from your cigarette pack for a smoke, and the cycle continues.
This is where hypnotherapy comes in. The reason why it’s so effective is because it interacts directly with the subconscious mind, right where your beliefs are ingrained. It helps retrain your unconscious mind so that it’s easier to change compulsive, life-long habits with just a single session. Then we can proceed with replacing bad habits and beliefs with good ones instead.
