THE NSCI STOP SMOKING HANDBOOK
Before seeing our Henley hypnotherapist, you might like to browse the sample pages on our website.
Here is a very small taster:
….. Now, learning to smoke actually means doing something very specific in medical terms. It means teaching your immune system to stop telling you that tobacco smoke is poisonous. It’s a good trick and it’s incredibly dangerous, because your immune system being unable to tell you that it’s poisonous doesn’t stop it being poisonous.
When you learned to smoke, all you did was to stop your body protecting itself from being poisoned by tobacco. That’s why tobacco kills, because it has carte blanche to poison you without you knowing it.
So far so good, but what happens then? Well, I have to admit that no-one understands this mechanism completely, for the rather bizarre reason that there is no government funding for research into it. The only research we are aware of is being done by us. The drug companies, of course, don’t do the research because there would be no point. It wouldn’t help them to develop new drugs.
What we do know is that the immune system does something very strange when it is forced to accept poisons. It goes into reverse. If you insist on poisoning yourself, your immune system thinks that’s what you want to do and it says alright, if you insist, and throws itself completely into reverse mode and now, instead of trying to protect you from poisoning yourself it tries to protect you from stopping.
A SHORT CASE HISTORY
From our Henley hypnotherapy branch
Anthony rang us about hypnotherapy and, as we always do, we went through the issues he had with stopping smoking. He ticked all the right boxes, and we decided we should go ahead. Then, at the last minute, he asked whether he should have acupuncture. This showed quite a lot of confusion. Once we have assessed a client and made our recommendation, it’s not normal then to look at a different therapy.
However, before asking our Henley hypnotherapist to get in touch with him, we went through with Anthony what each therapy does, and explained why we had recommended hypnosis (which was what he had called us about in the first place). Now he knew more about each therapy he was happy to go ahead with the hypnosis.
So how do we assess a smoker and decide which therapy to provide? Like Anthony, most smokers don’t understand why they can’t stop. Almost everyone who calls about our Henley hypnotist has tried to stop smoking and failed. What this should show them is what their problems are, but in practice it just leaves most smokers bewildered. This applies especially if, like Anthony, they have been dependent on the NHS for smoking cessation. GPs are not good at asking questions. They provide answers, but in our experience providing an answer when you haven’t asked the questions leads to failure.
Anthony had assumed that if NRPs help people to stop smoking, and they hadn’t helped him, there was something wrong with him. This is why we worry about NHS patients being given one NRP after another, building failure upon failure. Anyway, that’s another subject.
So Anthony came to see our Henley hypnotist. Not because he had been told that hypnotherapy works but because he understood what it was going to do to resolve his problems. He came into this with his eyes wide open, unlike the great majority of smokers. They go to their GP, or even a hypnotist or acupuncturist, without knowing either what that method does or why they are using it. Perhaps we are being a little harsh, but it’s an important point. Before you come to us, or go to any of the Henley hypnotherapists you will find online, ask yourself two all-important questions. Why can’t you stop smoking, and how does hypnosis resolve those issues?
