A SHORT CASE HISTORY
From our Thetford hypnotherapy branch
Harvey was keen to stop smoking, and had tried all the drug products offered by his GP. This included NRPs and Champix. The former had not really helped, and the latter had had serious side effects. His doctor had omitted to inform him it is a psychotropic drug. Had Harvey known what that means he would never have taken it.
Having failed with all these products, he had asked his doctor about seeing a Thetford hypnotist for therapy. At first the GP failed to understand what that means. This is because NRPs are called nicotine replacement therapy by the pharmaceutical companies. Obviously they are products, not therapy. The doctor’s confusion was unhelpful to Harvey, but once he understood what therapy means he took a firm stance. Harvey asked him to recommend a qualified Thetford hypnotherapist but his response was why would the patient want therapy when he could prescribe drugs? Harvey politely pointed out to him that the NRPs had not helped, and the Champix had made him ill. His reaction to that was to suggest using them again. Harvey could see that this made no sense.
This was the point at which he gave up on the NHS smoking cessation model altogether. He understood, when we explained to him when he enquired about our Thetford hypnotist, that therapy works better than drugs. Always. The pharmaceutical model makes an assumption that altering body chemistry will solve every issue there is in smoking cessation. Clearly, that is an unworkable assumption, witness the very low success rate for such products. Harvey could see that himself. He had been through the whole range and was no better off. He started to see that he needed to stop taking drugs, and look at therapy instead.
Most people who want to stop smoking have to discover this truth for themselves before they get as far as seeing our Thetford hypnotist. Not only had Harvey’s GP presented his products as the default option, but Harvey didn’t have a lot of money and anything that could be prescribed by his doctor was a first choice. However, something cheap that doesn’t work is not actually cheap. Harvey wanted therapy that wasn’t going to cost too much, and was attracted to National Stop Smoking Centres as a not-for-profit public service. He was also wary of side-effects, having suffered so badly on Champix, and hypnosis has no side-effects at all.
The first thing he noticed, when he spoke with our Thetford hypnotherapist, was the friendly, helpful attitude. This is not to say his GP wasn’t friendly, but Harvey spent more time talking with the hypnotist before he even made his booking than he had ever spent with his doctor. This was a good start for the whole process, and Harvey went on to stop smoking more easily than he had thought possible.
THE NSCI STOP SMOKING HANDBOOK
Before seeing our Thetford hypnotherapist, you might like to read the sample pages on our website.
Here is a very small taster:
….. But I said before that addiction isn’t the only reason you can’t stop smoking, and it isn’t, because addiction, as I’ve already said, creates the psychological dependence that makes you believe you can’t stop, and this is the point.
I have a confession to make. Back in 1991, when we started using the treatment for nicotine addiction that we have, we just gave it to people and expected them to stop smoking. Well, they were no longer addicted so what else could there be? There was in fact, believe it or not, no literature on the complex relationship between addiction and dependence. Reams and reams of research papers, shelfloads of books, but no answer to the real problems, and we had to learn the hard way, by which I mean some of the people phoned and said they weren’t succeeding.
It was a bitter blow, but we knew the treatment was important so we learned about dependence from our patients and then it all worked the way it was supposed to.
It is, in short, this relationship between addiction and dependence that makes it hard to stop smoking. I’m going to be explaining both subjects in a lot of detail in later tutorials, so by the time you finish Part One and you’re ready to start the projects in Part Two you will have a completely different understanding about why you can’t stop, and how to tackle those reasons logically and successfully. I think I’ve said it before but I’m afraid I have to say it again, knowledge is power. With this knowledge you will have the power to stop smoking.
