Smoking cigarettes is now more than ever a socially unacceptable behaviour, which is highly addictive, erodes your will power, and slowly robs you of your health, time (self, family and friends) and finances. To kick the habit, there are a myriad of nicotine replacement therapies, and no doubt if you’ve tried to quit, you’ll be familiar with patches, gums, lozenges, mouth sprays and the contentious e cigarette inhalers. Maybe you’ve even tried prescribed medication like Zyban®, Prexaton or Champix® with varying degrees of success?
There is another alternative, most people consider as a last resort: Hypnosis.
Can hypnosis help me quit?
In a word, yes. However, it is reliant on your true motivation to be cigarette free. If you have made a commitment to yourself, for yourself and are prepared to do whatever it takes, you will be among those who quit easily and effectively with hypnotherapy. If you can still justify reasons to continue your smoking habit, chances are you are not yet ready to take your last puff.
What is Whispered Wisdom Hypnotherapy’s Quit Smoking Program?
We do not offer one session quit smoking hypnosis. It is our experience that only a few people successfully quit after their first session. In truth, most people require between three and five sessions. Hypnosis is not a magic cure and there may still be times you feel like a cigarette, the feeling will pass, and if you’re committed you will choose not to act upon it.
Maximum fee – five sessions $450
Decide you are a non-smoker
There is no slowly going off cigarettes, make the decision that you are now a non-smoker.
Ensure your reasons for quitting are compelling and you are doing this for yourself, not for someone else.
Pre-prepare for your success by removing (preferably throwing away) all of your smoking related paraphernalia, eg cigarettes, ashtrays, lighters, etc.
If you smoke in your car, clean it out.
Know your triggers
Make time to list your triggers, such as when you smoke, what you do while you smoke, how you feel when you smoke and where you smoke.
Once you identify your patterns, be brave and change one.
Schedule your attendance
Plan in advance and book in to attend 5 weekly hypnotherapy sessions in our Muswellbrook Clinic.
If you need fewer appointments you are not locked into any contract and we can decide this as you progress.
Do not have your last cigarette on the way to your first appointment.
If you attend one session and are not completely successful first go, does not mean hypnosis does not work.
Do not leave your first session and go home and have a cigarette to test out the skill of your hypnotherapist. What you are testing and re-programming is yourself.
You must advise us if you are under medical supervision and where appropriate gain the consent of your medical treatment provider prior to undertaking hypnosis to quit smoking.
