A SHORT CASE HISTORY
From our Teddington hypnotherapy branch
George asked a question we get from time to time. Was he too old to stop smoking? Let’s say before we go any further that the answer is always no. Even asking it is wrong.
First, let’s look at the age range our acupuncturists and hypnotherapists see. We get very few enquiries about stopping smoking from people under thirty, although it’s always good when we do. Our Teddington hypnotherapist recently helped a young man of twenty-four, but that is uncommon. And at the other extreme our Teddington acupuncturist saw a man of eighty who had been smoking for over sixty years. George was only 68, so he was a youngster!
So why did he even ask the question? Well, to some extent we can understand it. It’s hard to imagine not smoking after so many years. This is what we call fear of success, which means being afraid of something you haven’t experienced for a very long time. We all fear change, and stopping smoking is a big change.
George wanted to come to our Teddington hypnotist, otherwise he wouldn’t have called us about this. But one of his problems was that his GP had given up on him. The doctor had more or less said he thought at George’s age it didn’t matter. There are good and bad ways to die, and anything related to not being able to breathe comes under the heading of bad. George’s lungs were not too bad for his age, but they weren’t too good either. He was in fact at an age when the lungs can suddenly go downhill. So it was his choice.
He booked up to see our hypnotist in Teddington, and in fact he did stop smoking after just one session. He understood what he had to do. We suspected he even understood why he had asked the question. As well as fear of success every smoker has a fear of failure. And one of the ways you avoid failure is to not try. In a sense George’s age was relevant here. It was just easier for him to carry on doing what he had always done. Sixty-eight is not an age for making big changes.
There is an interesting postscript to this story. Six or seven months after his visit to our Teddington hypnotist, he called our AfterCare team. No, he said, he didn’t need any help. He just wanted to tell us how glad he was he had made the decision to stop smoking. We were pleased to hear this. It vindicated our own decision to encourage him to stop.
THE NSCI STOP SMOKING HANDBOOK
Here is a small taster from the book. If you are going to come to our Teddington hypnosis or acupuncture branch, it’s a good idea to read the free sample pages first.
How nicotine makes you think you like smoking.
In this tutorial I am going to be asking five questions:
Is the perceived pleasure of smoking stopping you stopping?
If you enjoy smoking, is it also true that you enjoy being a smoker?
Who enjoys life more, smokers or non-smokers?
Is smoking as enjoyable as you think it is?
If it is, is it worth dying for?
The answer to all five questions is going to make it harder for you to justify smoking. You could guess that, couldn’t you? What would be the point of this kind of Handbook otherwise? The sad thing is that I’m right. Sorry, but if you read this tutorial you are never again going to be able to say you won’t stop smoking because you enjoy it too much, not with a clear conscience, anyway. That excuse is going to be lost to you for ever. You could skip this tutorial, but come on, are you really such a coward?
