From our Doncaster hypnotherapy branch

Charlie didn’t want to stop smoking. At least that was what came across quite strongly when he called our national advice service. You could be forgiven for wondering, in that case, why he was calling us. But think about it. Every smoker is in conflict. You want to be a non-smoker, but you wish you didn’t have to go through the process of stopping. It’s like going to the dentist. No-one wants to go, but we do it because we want our teeth to get fixed. It’s the price you have to pay to get what you want.

What Charlie really wanted was our Doncaster hypnotherapist to make this all go away, as if he had never smoked. He wanted to be someone who doesn’t smoke. He just didn’t want to go through the becoming bit. Why was that? Well, it’s pretty much the same for everyone. Stopping smoking isn’t in fact all that hard. At least it shouldn’t and need not be. But it is, because, in short, the National Health Service puts people on drug products that let them down. We’re not saying stopping is easy, but we are saying that with the right therapy it can be, and usually is. It has been turned into a big problem largely by the NHS.

And yes, Charlie had been through all that. He had been put on one nicotine replacement product after another, with some short-term success only. He had been prescribed Champix, with the usual bad result. So what had been a bit difficult now seemed to him to be impossible. It is hardly surprising, is it, that by the time he came to us he was so convinced he couldn’t stop smoking that the only way he had to express himself was to say he didn’t want to. This wrong belief comes largely from the myth that you have to want to stop to do so, which means that if you fail it must be because you didn’t want to. Well, we have some news from those people who believe this. No-one wants to stop smoking. Our Doncaster hypnotist sees people all the time who don’t want to. And yet they come to her, and they stop. Why is that?

It comes down to what ‘want’ means. As we suggested above, almost everyone who smokes wants to stop. So why don’t they? Why aren’t they all trying right now? Why does the average smoker try to stop, say, once every couple of years instead of all the time? Because every time they try, usually with some drug product, and fail, it makes them believe they don’t want to. Think about the number of smokers locally, and how many of them are on some kind of NRP, or Champix, or an electric cigarette (which is also an NRP). Almost all of them, statistically, are going to fail, or succeed only in the short term. And many of them are going, in the end, to approach a hypnotherapist in Doncaster for help. But by that time they have come to believe they can’t so they don’t want to, which is where we started with Charlie. The point here is that it doesn’t mean what it seems to mean. In fact it doesn’t really mean anything.

We had to explain all of this to Charlie, and he did finally come to believe it. He looked back at his failures and doing that he could chart his growing lack of faith, first in the products he was given and then in himself. All Doncaster hypnotherapists see people like Charlie regularly. The way to succeed, though, is to help the client to understand why they have convinced themselves that they don’t want to stop smoking. Then, they can more forward with doing what they really want, which is to become someone who doesn’t smoke.


Sometimes, people come to us not to stop smoking but for smoking reduction. It’s a choice they make, and we publish a book on reduction. ‘No, You Don’t Have to Stop Smoking’ will be of interest even if you do want to stop completely. Why not take a look at it before you visit our Doncaster hypnosis branch. Here is a taster to get you started.

Weight gain and sugar

First, let’s establish why people put on weight. Weight comes from food. It doesn’t magically appear, you have to eat it. If you eat more than you burn as energy, some of it will be left. This is called fat.

If eating more than you need for fuel makes fat, why do people put on weight when they stop smoking? Well, first of all they don’t; some people put on weight when they stop smoking. Most people don’t put on weight; in fact some people lose weight when they stop, so that drives a coach and horses through any excuse you have used in the past for not stopping. On the other hand maybe you did stop and maybe you put weight on which kind of contradicts what I just said, except it doesn’t, because if you did gain weight you are actually in a minority. Nonetheless, if you did you have a valid worry that when you cut down your smoking this will happen again, so let’s have a look at that idea and see if it’s at all likely – at whether what happened when you stopped smoking is likely to happen when you just smoke a lot less.

There is an unhelpful myth (in that all myths are unhelpful, because by definition they are not true) that when you stop smoking your metabolism slows down and therefore you are bound to gain weight. Apart from the fact that most people wouldn’t know what a metabolism was if it smacked them in the face, is this actually true? Well, yes and no (wouldn’t you just know there isn’t a simple answer?)

OK, it is true that smoking slightly increases the metabolism, which is the rate at which your body converts sugars into energy. But first it is only a slight effect and second it varies, which means that for a lot of people the effect is so slight as to be unimportant, and thirdly the fact the smoking can increase your metabolism and therefore stopping smoking can decrease it does not mean that decreasing it is a bad thing.


Therapy might not be what you’re looking for. If it isn’t, and you want to take pharmaceutical products to stop smoking, we suggest you see your GP.. You can also visit the Yorkshire Smokefree website here.
