Do you want to quit smoking for new year?

If that's a yes then you're in the right place. Smoking is one of the hardest habits to break, but luckily hypnotherapy is one of the few modalities that can actually make it easy.

  • Change your subconscious mind so that you never return to smoking again in the future

What's in a cigarette? 

As we know tobacco smoke is both toxic and addictive. 

Tobacco smoke contains around 7,000 chemicals. Many of these are poisonous and over 60 are known to be cancer causing (carcinogenic). So, it's no wonder that so many smokers would like help finally putting out their last cigarette. 


The chemical constituents of cigarettes include:

  • Nicotine - Nicotine is a colourless, poisonous alkaloid derived from the tobacco plant. It is a powerful drug that affects the brain and quickly becomes an addictive habit
  • Tar - ‘Tar’ is the term used to describe the toxic chemicals found in cigarettes. It looks like a sticky brown substance that forms when tobacco cools and condenses. It collects in the lungs and can ultimately cause cancer or lung damage 
  • Carbon monoxide - An odourless, colourless gas that is released when tobacco is burning. When it is inhaled it enters the blood stream and interferes with the working of the heart and the blood vessels. Researchers have found that up to 15% of a smoker’s blood can be carrying carbon monoxide instead of oxygen
  • Arsenic - Arsenic-containing pesticides used in tobacco farming occur in small quantities in cigarette smoke. Arsenic is commonly found in rat poison and other pest control products
  • Ammonia - A toxic, colourless gas with a very strong odour. Ammonia compounds are commonly used in cleaning products and fertilisers. Moreover it is used to boost the impact of nicotine in manufactured cigarettes 
  • Acetone - A fragrant volatile liquid ketone, used as a solvent which is found in products such as nail polish remover
  • Toluene - A highly toxic chemical which is used in industrial items such as rubbers, oils, resins, adhesives, inks, detergents, dyes, explosives and more
  • Methylamine - A chemical found in tanning lotion
  • Pesticides - A number of pesticides (toxic chemicals used to kill pests and most insects) are present in cigarette smoke. These pesticides find their way into cigarettes because they’re used on the tobacco plants as they are growing and being fertilised 
  • Polonium – 210 - A radioactive element which is used in nuclear weapons as well as an atomic heat source 
  • Methanol - A fuel used in the aviation industry

Why is it so hard to quit smoking cigarettes?

Cigarettes are addictive because of the nicotine they contain, which they are designed to rapidly deliver to the brain via inhalation. Nicotine triggers the release of the 'feel good' chemicals, like dopamine, which gives the smoker a temporary feeling of well being. In addition, the behavioural/social aspects of cigarette use are highly rewarding for the smoker. 

While there are many factors that make it difficult to kick the habit, there are solutions such as over the counter patches, gum or inhalers. Your local GP can also give you advice on how to stop and there are plenty of Group meet ups in local community centres where people support each other to quit.

However, it is estimated that about 85% of ex-smokers will return to smoking within a year and that is where hypnotherapy comes in. Hypnotherapy can break the cycle. 



How can hypnotherapy stop me from smoking? 

For people trying to quit smoking, hypnosis has proven to be a successful solution. Instead of replacing or slowly reducing addictive chemicals in your system, hypnotherapy works by breaking negative behaviours and thought patterns associated with smoking. It is also possible for hypnosis to target the unconscious motivations for smoking, such as boredom, stress and loneliness, and deactivate some of the triggers that cause you to pick up a cigarette without thinking, like driving, drinking, or finishing a meal.

I'm sure if you're a smoker you are already aware of the huge benefits of stopping, but you may feel nervous too. It's hard to imagine life without a cigarette...it's a familiar and comforting habit and you can't imagine that there won't be a huge gap left once you stop. But this is where hypnotherapy really shines, as your UNDERLYING feelings will have shifted from listening to the sessions. You will subtly change the emotional dependence you have on smoking, and this more than anything can make the difference to your outcome.

Imagine feeling perfectly fine and content in a social situation, without reaching for a cigarette. Imagine not needing to smoke when you're frustrated in traffic, or at the end of a stressful day. And now imagine that that is EASY for you, that you can look back on your years of smoking and be so incredibly relieved that you've moved on to a healthier life, that your loved ones no longer nag you or worry about you, and that you have saved so much money along the way. That is a truly wonderful feeling, and one that could be a lot easier for you to achieve than you've ever thought possible. 

Hypnotherapy works, and it works quickly and inexpensively. You simply have to decide that this is the time for you to take back control and make a change that can ONLY benefit you positively. There are literally no downsides to quitting smoking! 

All you have to do is trust the process of hypnotherapy and it will help you quit smoking for good.
