THE NSCI STOP SMOKING HANDBOOK
Here is a small taster from the book. If you’re coming to our Preston hypnotist or acupuncturist, it’s an idea to read the free sample pages first.
….. People’s psychological reaction to stopping smoking ranges from incredulousness that they’ve finally done it to trying to convince themselves that they will never keep it up. Almost everything you think when you do stop smoking is conditioned by the twin fears of failure and success, and that means you can still be afraid of failing, even though you have just succeeded, and you can still be afraid of succeeding, even though you have, as I said, just done it and the world didn’t come to an end.
In other words, all the issues that affected you before you stopped smoking, the ones that made you afraid to try, and that made you give in when the going got tough, are still there after you succeed. The issues that make it hard to stop smoking are the same ones that make it hard to stay stopped, with one exception – you are no longer addicted to nicotine.
Not being addicted is great, but it often isn’t enough. This is because addiction creates psychological depend-ence, remember. Once it has done that, paradoxically the dependence no longer needs the addiction. Tobacco can have almost as firm a grip on you after the addiction is over as before. Don’t think it’s going to let go of you just because you aren’t addicted, oh no. It’s like an alien in your brain controlling you, even after it’s dead. (Listen, you let it in, remember.) Tobacco’s job, once you have beaten it, is to win you back.
A SHORT CASE HISTORY
From our Preston hypnotherapy branch
Magnus’ GP had tried him on one NRP after another, in the vain hope that if one didn’t help another would. He even gave him Champix, but that didn’t help either.
Then Magnus himself came up with the idea of hypnotherapy. A friend of his had succeeded with it, again after failed attempts with the NHS, so Magnus wanted to do it. He went back to his GP and asked for a referral to a Preston hypnotherapist. The doctor told him he couldn’t refer him, so Magnus just asked for his advice on finding a qualified hypnotist. Again, the GP said he couldn’t recommend hypnotherapy, because unlike NRPs it wasn’t proven to work. Magnus thought about this. ‘Unlike NRPs’? All the NRPs he had tried had failed to work, so what did the doctor mean? The doctor, though, had an answer. He said something like, NRPs have a proven success rate but of course they don’t work for everyone. The implication was that they work so the failure was Magnus’s.
He searched online for a Preston hypnotist, and found there were plenty to choose from. The problem was, how could he know who was qualified? Well, the fact is that most hypnotherapists are qualified to one degree or another, but this isn’t really helpful. So he tried a different search, thinking there might be a difference, for a Preston hypnotherapist. The results were the same.
He noticed, though, that one result on Google stood out. National Stop Smoking Centres. He hadn’t heard about us, but he reasoned that since we only do stopping smoking that’s a good start.
To cut a long story short, he came to our Preston hypnotherapy branch, and he stopped smoking after just one session. That might have been the end of the story, but it wasn’t. The next time he saw his GP he mentioned that he had stopped smoking. The doctor said something like good for you, and that might have been the end of it. But Magnus told him how he had managed it, hoping the doctor might be interested. But he wasn’t.
Anyway, Magnus thought for himself, did his research and attended our Preston hypnotherapy branch. So for him, that’s the end of the story.
TALK WITH OUR HYPNOTIST * FIRST
When you call us about hypnotherapy or acupuncture, or complete the enquiry form, we will contact you to discuss whether they are what you need. Once we are sure, we will have our Preston hypnotist or acupuncturist phone you. They are highly qualified, of course, but you will still want to see if you like them. Hypnotherapy and acupuncture are great, but your success will to some extent depend on your relationship with the hypnotist or acupuncturist you see.
OTHER PRESTON STOP SMOKING RESOURCES
