'How to Quit Cigarettes with or without Hypnosis'

Posted by on in QuitWithNick Blog

Hi there,

I just thought I would share with you what the deeper power of Hypnosis is and what it actually does. This is essentially why I love helping people with Hypnosis.

Now this might get a little deep, but stay with me, I think you'll find this pretty interesting, or at the very least some food for thought :)

I have a fundamental belief that we are all born with an inherent (and often dormant) creative genius within us just waiting to express itself to the world.

But as we go through the early stages of our lives we all experience certain situations that leave us somewhat wounded and bruised. I'm sure you can remember such moments in your life.

We've all experienced situations in our past where either a conscious or unconscious judgement was made, 'This thing that is happening is bad", and then clicked into a way of being, a type of behaviour, which acted as a coping mechanism which may have served us back then, but no longer serves us now

At that moment, we acquired a small piece of emotional baggage which will manifest itself time and time again, often in ways we are not aware of, any time a similar situation is experienced.

As a result, we slowly become more and more disconnected from that creative, powerful, joyous, fully self expressed being I believe we were all born to be.

Did you know that our conscious mind governs only 2-4% of our automatic behaviours, who we are and what we do?!

That leaves the rest to our unconscious mind.

What I love about Hypnosis is that it acts as a gateway, a bridge between the struggles of your day to day life (the conscious mind) and the resources you have within yourself to confidently and easily overcome them (the unconscious mind).

I think that's an amazing thing to experience, and it can be experienced in such a short amount of time with Hypnosis.

If you would like to find out more, ask questions, or book a session, feel free to give me a call anytime on 0403 819 681.

You've probably heard of him, you may have even done his course and read his books. His most famous being 'Easy Way To Stop Smoking'. It has sold over 6 million copies and has been translated into over 25 languages, so he must be doing something right, yes?

Anyway, I was doing a bit of research, came across this video and thought I would post it to see if you can get something out of it.

i will always give credit where credit is due, and Allen Carr deserves some credit. He was a REALLY heavy smoker and went through a personal journey, came out the other side and decide to share it with the world, and he's done pretty well to date.

This clip will give you a small insight into the psychology of a smoker. This is the most important thing to address, after all, it's mostly a psychological dependency, a psychological crutch if you will.

In the video he shares 4 myths that smokers have about quitting that are very helpful to recognize when you want to stop smoking and quit cigarettes once and for all.

I truly hope you get something out of it.

Hi there,

Well, I guess it's a step in the right direction. The Australian Government is leading the world in taking action with regards to the currently brightly colored and alluring cigarette packs. Very soon, you're not going to be seeing all the fancy colors but an apparently boring, dreary lime green color. How did they arrive at this color you ask? Apparently a statistical poll was taken, and this was the least attractive color to smokers.

Cigarette packets will now have the standard health warning (because we all know that those warnings help people quit cigarettes and stop smoking), as well as one little line with the brand and then the type under that.

cigarette pack prices

I find it kind of amusing how this has gotten so much attention. Sure, the tobacco companies are not going to like this, despite the huge savings and cost cutting they can expect in their respective graphic design and art departments, but is this move REALLY going to make smokers quit cigarettes and stop smoking all of a sudden?

I mean, seriously, I can't really see a smoker saying; "Oh darn it, I guess I'm going to have to quit now that my pack of cigarettes no longer has that nice lovely picture of the beach with the sun setting over it". Somehow I can't imagine smokers going, "well, since my packet no longer has that really cool coat of arms on it, i guess there's no reason to keep smoking eh?"

One thing it might do is prevent the kids from going for particular brands though. There might be some pictures and styles that appear more alluring to teens than others, but is this going to stop them from trying cigarettes when they are facing all the growing pains of teenage years, trying to fit in and "look cool".

Once again I can't imagine a teenager being encouraged by his peers to try a cigarette, 'fit in' and 'look cool', but saying, 'no thanks I don't like the way that dull green pack looks, I'll pass thanks". hmm . . . unlikely, I'm sure you would agree.

The simple bottom line is, YOU, the smoker will either be at that place where you are ready to decide to quit, or not. No matter how many restrictions are imposed on where, when and how you smoke, if you want to keep smoking, YOU WILL! no matter how much of an inconvenience it may be. You would think that the government would have figured out by now that placing more and more restrictions on any behavior judged to be harmful has never stopped people from doing it, it just makes them more creative, determined, defiant and resilient.

Hi there,

When people hear the word ‘Hypnosis’, very different thoughts come into peoples heads. Often people have an idea what they think hypnosis is because of something they have either seen at a stage show, on TV or in movies. Even though this entertainment aspect of hypnosis has had broad reach in society, it unfortunately doesn’t accurately represent the therapeutic hypnosis. The hypnosis that is used for entertainment is often very different to the hypnosis that is used for a therapeutic outcome such as quitting cigarettes, stress reduction and weight loss.

Watch the video below to give you some idea of what you can expect while your hypnotized.

Both of these types of hypnosis have only one common denominator, and that is, that it will not get you to do something that you do not want to do. Some people believe that hypnosis is some sort of power, a type of voodoo that can get you to do things against your will. But this is ridiculous really. It quite obviously can not do that if you think about what is actually happening during a hypnosis session. Hypnosis is basically words coming out of a therapist’s mouth, designed to lead you into a nice relaxed state. How you listen internally and participate is the most important element. Words coming out of a hypnotherapists mouth can never make your body and mind do something that is either against it’s will, like cluck like a chicken, or something that it really doesn’t want to do, like quit cigarettes. However if client and therapist are working towards a desired outcome, then hypnosis can be a very effective, fun and relaxing way to effect positive behavioural changes and outcomes.

People will often hypnosis NLP to quit smokingask me if anyone can be hypnotised, believing that not everyone can be. However there is a flaw in their question in that they are asking this question often assuming that hypnosis is something that is done ‘on’ or to ‘them’, meaning that it can either work ‘on them’ or not. This is simply a misconception. Hypnosis is basically a technique a used to guide a client into a state that every person naturally drifts in and out of often without them even realising it.

People will not use the words, ‘I was in a hypnotic trance’, but they might say things like; ‘I was in the zone, I zoned out, I was day dreaming, I was a million miles away, I tuned out, the lights are on but no one’s home’. I’m sure you have used these terms before to describe a situation where you were ‘there but you weren’t’. Simple examples include driving a car being in a kind of mental daze where you miss a turn off or end up in a place and have had no idea how you got there. Other examples include when you’re watching TV or reading a book. These things can have your attention so firmly, that you won’t even realise that someone else in the room is trying to have a conversation with you.

These are all examples of being in a hypnotic state. And because of these things, the question then becomes not can you be hypnotised, but how resistant are you to allowing someone else guide into that state in a particular time. This is the crucial element.

For someone to experience a hypnotic trance there needs to be an object of attention. In the everyday examples I mentioned above, the object of attention is the road that one is driving on, the TV show someone is watching, or the book in their hands. The important difference with therapeutic hypnosis is that the object of attention is the voice of the hypnotherapist and the instructions being given.

 

Having made that distinction, the important questions for successful hypnosis then become; Can you follow simple instructions? How resistant are you in allowing someone guide you into a state of relaxation? What is the nature of your internal dialogue during the hypnosis? Are you in a comfortable environment? Do you feel comfortable with the therapist? Does the therapist have your trust? Do you believe hypnosis can actually get you the result you want? What is the quality of the suggestions? Are you expecting something that isn’t going to happen?

relax through hypnosisThese are all elements that play an important role in determining the success of any kind of therapeutic hypnosis. These questions should be addressed and answered for the client by the hypnotherapist during the pre-hypnosis talk. This is an essential discussion had prior to the actual hypnosis. It sets the foundation for the right mindset needed by the client.

To your health,
