A SHORT CASE HISTORY
From our Barnes hypnotherapy branch
Kim’s problem was her husband, who had never smoked. It was an abusive relationship, and one of the ways her husband exercised control over her was to tell her she was no good. She would never quit smoking because she was weak. Smoking is a weakness, of course. The problem for Kim was that her husband needed her to remain weak.
It’s not our Barnes hypnotherapist’s job to get involved in relationship problems. On the other hand, he had to help Kim to find a way through this. Sometimes there is no choice but to help a client through the primary reason they can’t stop, even if it seems like an intractable problem beyond our remit.
If our Barnes hypnotist could not get involved in the problem, he could help Kim to separate the issues. If her husband was attacking her belief in herself, this was something our hypnotist could help with. It might indirectly help Kim in her marital problems, but at the least it would help to stop her believing she had to be a failure. Paradoxically, stopping smoking would itself beneficially increase her belief in herself. Smoking is abuse, in some ways similar to any abusive relationship. In fact we could say that all drug taking is abuse.
Kim arrived at our Barnes hypnosis service looking quite anxious, which was hardly surprising. But the change in her when she left was remarkable. We can only wonder what her husband must have made of it when she got home.
What actually happened is what we have been talking about here. Kim stopped smoking, which was instrumental in breaking her husband’s control over her. Stopping improved her self-esteem, and that was further improved by proving to her husband that she was made of more than he had told her all those years. In fact she returned to see our Barnes hypnotist for help with more of the life issues that she was now able to face, so it was a very good result.
THE NSCI STOP SMOKING HANDBOOK
Before seeing our Barnes hypnotherapist, why not read the free sample pages on our website.
Here is a very small taster:
How do you know if you are addicted to nicotine?
Well, you are, but you want some proof, don’t you?
Do you have an urge to smoke as soon as you wake up?
If you haven’t smoked for a couple of hours, does a cigarette give you an immediate feeling of relief?
Do you use more cigarettes in the first hour of the day than at any other time?
When you are in a non-smoking environment, do you look forward to getting out so you can light up?
Do you make sure you won’t run out of cigarettes?
When you haven’t smoked for several hours, do you experience mild symptoms such as headache, stomach cramps, sweats?
Not one of these can be attributed to any of the psychological problems you think you’ve got about stopping. You don’t want to smoke when you wake up out of habit, you want to smoke because you need nicotine. The relief you feel when you smoke might be interpreted as pleasure (more about that later) but it isn’t, it’s just relief because you’re getting a fix. You don’t make sure you don’t run out of cigarettes in case you might be stressed and need to smoke, you do it because you are addicted. If any of the above applies to you you are addicted, but in any case it’s certain that you are addicted, if you smoke at least four cigarettes a day. Why?
TALK WITH OUR HYPNOTIST FIRST
When you call us about hypnosis, or complete the enquiry form, we will contact you to discuss whether hypnotherapy is what you need. Once we are sure, we will have our Barnes hypnotist phone you. He is highly qualified, of course, but you will still want to see if you like him. Hypnotherapy is great, which is why we provide it, but your success will to some extent depend on your relationship with the hypnotherapist you see.
