We ask people, when they ring up about our Glasgow hypnotist, the reason they can’t stop smoking. There is of course often more than one reason, but one that comes up time and again is habit.

Here is the reason why habit is not actually stopping you stopping. Habit is something you do without thinking. You light up after a meal, when you make a long phone call or with a cup of coffee. These are habit cigarettes, but is habit the reason you smoke them? No, the reason you smoke any given cigarette is because you have cigarettes to smoke. You can test whether this habit matters by not having them readily available.

Before you book for hypnosis, try breaking your habit. Don’t keep your cigarettes where you can just smoke them without thinking. Make yourself think, so that it’s not a habit. Even better, don’t buy any. Now try smoking out of habit. So, you would have to go and buy some? True, but it has at least proved our point. Having to buy some is nothing to do with habit, is it?



From our Glasgow hypnotherapy branch

We have two Glasgow hypnotists. Malcolm lived in Motherwell but worked in the city and our Glasgow hypnotist was able to see him just after he left his office. Clients sometimes ask if they can come during the working day, but if this means they are going back to work after the session we don’t recommend it.

In fact Malcolm was glad not to do that. He had a lot of experience of friends and colleagues pestering him about how he was doing, when he tried to stop smoking. We sometimes find that friends ask about the client’s progress not because they want to be helpful but for less constructive reasons. What he did was tell no-one at work he was coming to see our hypnotist. Then, the following day, one or two asked him to come outside for a smoke break, and he declined without saying why. What he found, after a few days, was that people did notice he wasn’t smoking, and he said he wasn’t at the moment and left it at that.

Do we recommend telling people you’re going to stop smoking? It depends. Our hypnotherapists often say this is a good idea, but again it depends on the circumstances. If people are going to give you constructive support, go ahead. If they are likely to be negative, or over-interested, then keep it to yourself.

A week after Malcolm had his hypnosis, he did in fact have one slip-up when a colleague enticed him out of the office for a smoke break. Malcolm said he would go, but had no intention of smoking. What happened was that his friend asked him to hold his cigarette while he popped back to the office for a moment. Malcolm made the mistake of doing this, and yes, he took a puff, in a moment of madness. What happened then was that it made him feel ill. So he recognised that he didn’t want to smoke, ever again. 


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 Glasgow hypnotist phone you. They are highly qualified, of course, but you will still want to see if you like them. 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.


If you don’t want hypnosis you can try pharmaceutical products to stop smoking. See your GP or visit the NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde website here. If you need DO want to see our Glasgow hypnotist, call us.


We would like to discuss with you becoming a locum therapist as holiday cover to see our hypnosis clients. If you can match our high standards, please send your details to
