Stop Smoking With Hypnosis, The Natural Smoking Cure.
If you are looking for a natural aid to assist you with
quitting smoking, hypnosis may be it.
The theory behind stop smoking hypnosis is that the mind
controls the body, so that by using suggestions, affirmations,
and hypnotherapy your own mind can be the key to your quitting
The addiction to smoking is physical however the mind is
strong and can be programmed to overcome the physical symptoms
while the nicotine levels in your body drop. That way, you will
be less inclined to pick up that pack of cigarettes again.
For stop smoking hypnosis, you have to start by finding a
hypnotherapist in your area that specializes in helping people
with quitting smoking. You will need to go to a number of
sessions, though the exact number will vary from person to
Depending on your hypnotherapist, you may focus on your
future as a non-smoker, where you picture yourself doing things
that you cannot do currently because you smoke, or they may go
back into your past to look into the reasons why you started
smoking in the first place. In either case, you will need to
think positively and really believe that you can quit smoking
By focusing on the benefits that you will get by stopping
smoking, your mind will become used to the idea. Your
subconscious has no way to tell what is real from what is
fiction so if you keep telling yourself that you are a
non-smoker your subconscious will make this true, and the rest
of you will follow suit.
A hypnotherapists job is to lead you through the sessions
and assist with planting these positive thoughts. More often
than not, this will require several sessions. You might also
receive a tape or CD to use at home that includes stop smoking
messages. This will help to reinforce the idea of becoming a
non smoker and assist you with your at home self hypnosis

Progressive Relaxation With Hypnosis
Soft music might be played in the background if both the subject and the hypnotist agree to it. In soft yet firm voice, the hypnotist starts by getting the subject to focus attention on each of the major muscle groups, starting with their feet and working their way up.
The subject should be asked to tense the muscles, hold for a count of three, and then relax, working their way from the feet up the calves, knees, thighs, etc. After every few muscle groups, the hypnotist should remind the subject to remain in that relaxed state, by reiterating the groups that have already been relaxed.
Some hypnotherapists believe that withdrawal symptoms come from
conditioned responses you have heard that it is difficult to
quit smoking so many times that you believe it and do not make
an honest attempt. Plus, when you fail, you feel little or no
guilt everyone else has a hard time, so why feel bad? Your
subconscious has been trained to believe that it was an
impossible idea in the first place.
Your hypnotherapist will try to break this grip by giving
your subconscious new responses that are positive and will
give you confidence in yourself to give up smoking. This
emphasis is laid on your psychological healing instead of
your physical healing. While you are in the trance, your
hypnotherapist will point out all of the benefits you will
receive by not smoking. When you come back to reality, your
mind will be conditioned to avoid cigarettes, reducing the
severity of withdrawal symptoms.
The national cancer institute has a
dictionary of medical terms and it defines
hypnosis as "A trance-like state in which a
person becomes more aware and focused and
is more open to suggestion"

at home. There are several books and CDs on self hypnosis
