A SHORT CASE HISTORY
From our Raynes Park hypnotherapy branch
Peter’s problem was that he couldn’t understand why none of the drug products his GP had given him had helped him to stop smoking. He had an uncle who had stopped with nicotine patches, a sister who had stopped with Champix, and a friend of his had stopped after using an electric cigarette for two years. As far as he was concerned everyone he knew who had used drug products had succeeded. So why couldn’t he?
Well the first point is that what he said probably wasn’t even true. There were almost certainly people he knew who had tried these products and failed. He just didn’t know about it. The issue our Raynes Park hypnotherapist needed to address was Peter’s conviction that there must be something wrong with him. If other people could stop smoking with those products, why couldn’t he?
Our second point is that the success rate for drugs for smoking cessation is somewhere in the region of ten percent. If 90% of users fail with them, that means there was nothing special about Peter failing with them. It also means that the failure can be blamed on the products, not the users. Almost all of the clients who come to see our Raynes Park hypnotist have failed with such products, usually more than once. So statistically the three people Peter told us about were the exception, not the rule.
At this point we found it helpful to look at why Peter had not stopped smoking with the products he had tried. The explanation is too long to go into here, so we’ll summarise. Nicotine replacement products have such a poor success rate because giving people nicotine to stop them smoking is a bad idea. Electric cigarettes are also NRPs, so that deals with them. And Champix has two problems. One is that it has such a high incidence of side effects that most people can’t complete a course. The other is that altering brain chemistry to stop people smoking is a bad idea. Our hypnotherapist in Raynes Park has been helping people to stop smoking for fifteen years, and not one of them has ever suffered any side effects from hypnotherapy.
And now we come to an inescapable fact. Therapy always works better than drugs. Drugs are easy for the National Health Service and GPs. That’s fine, but what is not fine is that they don’t work in most cases. That is not solving the problem. It’s appearing to tackle the problem. The end result is a lot of people who come to hypnosis or acupuncture, after years of frustration, because they finally realise that the NHS can’t help them. If everyone who has ever come to our Raynes Park hypnosis branch had made that their first choice, they would have saved themselves a great deal of wasted time.
THE NSCI STOP SMOKING HANDBOOK
Before you see our Raynes Park hypnotherapist, have a read of the free sample pages on our website.
Here is a bit of a taster:
This is actually two case studies which illustrate fear.
Maureen was a woman in her sixties, very strong both physically (she was an ex-Olympic swimmer) and emotionally. Her husband attended the clinic with her, not as a patient but just to support her, which we approve of.
Before we had gone too long into the appointment a ghastly look came over Maureen’s face and she got up from her seat. Before we had time to realise what was happening, she had crumpled onto the floor in the corner of the consulting room. She was shaking violently and crying. Her husband was, not surprisingly, highly alarmed. It was fear of going through with it. The nurse gave her a dose of Argentum Nitricum (a homeopathic remedy we sometimes use for fear) and helped her to do some breathing exercises, and in due course she calmed down and completed the session. She went on to stop smoking, but it was an eye-opener for her husband, who saw her as a swimming champion but had never known how afraid she was of stopping smoking. It was a bit of an eye-opener for us too.
Barry came to the clinic with his sister. Half-way through the session, after the nurse had given him his first dose of the neutrogen, he stood up and said he refused to continue, and he left the room very aggressively. His sister was acutely embarrassed but continued with her treatment. That afternoon, when we were in the next session with more patients, she knocked on the door of the clinic. Her brother had sent her, with his payment, and asked if he could have his neutrogen. He was too embarrassed to come himself, but they had sat in a pub over the road having lunch, and he realised that he didn’t feel like smoking. The only thing that could overcome his fear of failure was seeing his own success. A week later his sister rang to request a repeat prescription for him, because he was still embarrassed, but was still not smoking.
Fear makes people do strange things, including refusing help from the very people who can make the fear go away.
