A SHORT CASE HISTORY
From our Durham hypnotherapy branch
John was a pipe smoker, and wanted to know if hypnotherapy would work for him. The short answer was yes. It didn’t actually matter what he was smoking.
However, there is an issue with pipe smoking that our Durham hypnotist had to take into account. People who have smoked a pipe for years are habituated to the rituals around it. This is not to deny the importance of addiction to nicotine though. The point here is the things people do with pipes are not in themselves important. What happens is that the pipe tells the brain that a fix of nicotine is on the way. Our hypnotist discussed this with John, and he got the point.
This raises the point that a lot of people believe, wrongly, that the habit is a problem in smoking cessation. Habit has nothing to do with it. Some people think that hypnosis means that smokers are not addicted, because it’s a psychological therapy, but that misses the point. Yes, John had a strong relationship with his pipe, but it wasn’t enough to keep him smoking. That was something else. What our hypnotherapist had to do was use the power of his subconscious mind to ignore the feelings of withdrawal from nicotine. And because she achieved that John didn’t need his pipe.
As he himself said, if his pipe had been the issue he could have filled it with tobacco and suck on it if he thought that would help. But it wouldn’t. You cannot get a fix of nicotine from raw tobacco, because you are addicted to burned tobacco, which is completely different in chemical composition. Let alone could the action of cleaning and refilling a pipe satisfy the craving. All hypnotists are aware of these issues, we would hope.
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 Durham hypnotist phone you. She is highly qualified, of course, but you will still want to see if you like her. 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.
– or acupuncturist, as appropriate..
OTHER DURHAM STOP SMOKING RESOURCES
If Durham hypnosis or acupuncture are not what you’re looking for to stop smoking, see your GP.. You can also visit the Smokefreelife County Durham website here.
TWO STOP-SMOKING TIPS
Before seeing our Durham hypnotist or acupuncturist, there are two things to remember. One is to be done, say, before your hypnotherapy, and the other is to be done after. Before your hypnosis appointment, watch the videos here. They are good preparation for your therapy. And after you have seen our hypnotist, call us (the next working day), on 01200 40 50 22. This follow-up phone consultation is free, and is really worthwhile.
