Hypnosis - Smoking Cessation

How does Hypnosis help with Smoking Cessation?
Hypnosis is a very effective tool for Smoking Cessation. Hypnosis uses the vast potential of your mind to eliminate unwanted habits. This is done through suggestions that your subconscious mind responds to in a positive way to make the changes you desire. The Subconscious is the part of your mind that controls the habit.

A suggestion is included that other peoples' smoking will not induce you to smoke but rather make you feel strong and glad to be a non-smoker. Suggestions are also given that you will not replace smoking with any other habit and that you will maintain your current weight and keep a balanced blood-sugar level.

Why become a non-smoker? Consider the following benefits:
  • Improve your health. Lower your risk for smoking related illnesses and diseases like high blood pressure, cancer, heart disease and stroke.
  • Feel more energetic and vital.
  • Breathe easier.
  • Get the monkey off your back. Free yourself from the addictive habit of smoking and the addictive substance of nicotine.
  • Save up from $2920* annually for a 20-cigarettes-a-day habit and from $3285 to $3475* annually for a 25-cigarettes-a-day habit. *based on August 2006 prices in Ontario
  • Reduce wrinkles! Smoking robs skin's elasticity. A study in the American Journal of Public Health in 1995 said the faces of 20-a-day smokers aged by 14 years for every 10 years of smoking.
  • Get rid of the smells from your clothing, your breath and your space.
  • Have whiter teeth, a cleaner mouth and fingers, and fresher breath.
  • Go to any restaurant (or public place) and sit anywhere you wish. No more freezing your buns off smoking outside in Canadian winters!
  • Enjoy the rich taste of foods again.
  • Experience less tension and stresses.
  • Feel able to cope more calmly in intense situations.
  • Feel FREE!
Go ahead…. Feel proud of yourself… Take control back
  • Your body begins to heal 20 MINUTES after you stop smoking! Your blood pressure drops to normal in that time and the body temperature of your hands and feet increases to normal.
  • Within 6 hours your heart rate and blood pressure stabilize.
  • Within 8 hours of quitting, the levels of deadly carbon monoxide return to normal and the level of oxygen returns to normal.
  • Within 24 hours of quitting, your chances of having a heart attack begin to drop. Within 48 hours, your ability to smell and taste normally begins to return.
  • After one week, most withdrawal symptoms are gone.
  • Within 2 weeks to 3 months, your circulation improves and lung function increases as much as 30%. Your confidence also improves as you begin to feel good about your progress.
  • Within 2 months your blood flow improves to your hands and feet and your skin looks healthier.
  • After 1 to 9 months coughing, fatigue, sinus congestion, and shortness of breath decrease. After 1 year, the excess risk of heart disease is half that of a smoker.
  • Within 3 months, the cilia ( the lungs' hair-like cleaning system) recover and begin ridding the lungs of mucous.
  • After 5 years, the lung cancer death rate for a one-pack-per-day smoker decreases by almost half. After 5-15 years after quitting, stroke risk is reduced to that of a non-smoker. Risk of cancer of the oesophagus, throat, and mouth is half that of a smoker's.
  • After 10 years, the lung cancer death rate is similar to that of a non-smoker.
