A STOP-SMOKING TIP
Something people are concerned about, when they call about seeing our south Manchester hypnotist or acupuncturist, is the issue of stress. They often say they can’t stop smoking because of it. Or that they smoke more when they are stressed. Or that they did stop, but it was stress that made them start again. It all boils down to the same thing. The erroneous belief that smoking relieves stress.
Why erroneous? You smoke, so you are addicted to nicotine. When you don’t get a drug you are addicted to, it makes you stressed. When you don’t smoke, you don’t get nicotine and so it makes you stressed. When you then smoke, the nicotine makes you feel less stressed. So what smoking is doing is nothing more than relieving the stress you feel because you haven’t smoked. There is nothing in tobacco that relieves any other kind of stress.
The problem this causes is that it creates the belief that it is smoking that makes you less stressed. It’s just not true. So before you see your local Manchester hypnotist or acupuncturist accept this right now. Stress. In fact, and this is the really good news, many people become LESS stressed when they stop smoking.
A SHORT CASE HISTORY
From our Manchester hypnotherapy branch in Sale
Fiona and Tim wanted to book with our Manchester hypnotist to stop smoking, but they wanted to be seen together. They had always tried to stop together in the past. They had obviously failed, which we could have pointed out to them but didn’t. We always recommend that couples stop together, for obvious reasons. But does that mean seeing our hypnotist together? No. Hypnotherapy is not a group therapy.
Our Manchester hypnotherapist in Sale could offer them an appointment on the same day, but clients are never seen together. As it turned our the two clients were very different people, with different issues and personalities. Even if hypnotherapy were ever done in couples they would not have been suitable. Perhaps one of the reasons for their past failures was that they had not recognised the significance of this.
Given that they had only tried with the NHS this was not surprising. Our Manchester hypnotist sees people every day who have failed with the NHS’s drug products. Is that because those products don’t work well, or because GPs know so little about smoking cessation? It’s probably a bit of both. The training NHS staff get is solely concerned with NRPs and psychotropic drugs. Neither Fiona nor Tim had ever had hypnotherapy or acupuncture before, or even seen a ‘specialist’ who really knew their subject. Smokers’ individual issues are important, and it seems only therapists really understand this.
Anyway, these two smokers both saw our Sale hypnotist on the same day, and interestingly when they compared notes they experienced the hypnotherapy differently. That might be because of their different perceptions, or because they were different people and our hypnotist tailored the sessions differently. The latter is certainly true in any case.
What we see from this story is the NHS smoking cessation model is very different from a typical Manchester hypnotherapist. All we can say about that is that most smokers try the NHS first, and then come for hypnotherapy. That, we suppose, says all you need to know.
THE NSCI STOP SMOKING HANDBOOK
Here is a small taster from the book. If you are coming to either of our south Manchester hypnosis branches, it’s a good idea to read the sample pages first.
….. Wanting to smoke, once you have stopped, should not come as a surprise for the simple reason that it is so obviously predictable. I’m not being negative. I talk to some hypnotherapists who say oh no, once I’ve stopped someone smoking that’s it, they will never think about it again. Really? When they see people smoking all around them? I don’t think so. I think they may not want to smoke for a long time, but I also think they will one day get caught out by an inexplicable urge to do it. Understanding that is the best protection you can have against it.
You could almost argue that stopping smoking is irrelevant, that actually the only issue is staying stopped, because all smokers stop every day, when they go to sleep, and is it not true that all smokers start smoking again every day, in the morning? I don’t know, but it’s worth thinking about.
Aha, you say, but in the morning I haven’t really stopped so it’s not a valid question. Well, who is to say you haven’t stopped? Excuse me, but what exactly does stopped mean?
