THE NSCI STOP SMOKING HANDBOOK
Here is a taster from the book. If you are going to come to our Eastbourne hypnotherapist or acupuncturist, read the sample pages first.
Assess why you can’t stop.
If you have learned anything thus far from this Handbook, I hope it is that you have failed to stop smoking because you have been doing it wrong. Failure to achieve something is usually because you do it wrong, so why should stopping smoking be any different?
You have almost certainly also started to understand your past mistakes, and hopefully you have made a commitment not to make them again. But let’s go further, let’s analyse what you did and why it didn’t work. We go through this kind of procedure in our clinical programme, Phoenix (because it’s a long consultation and we have time to do it, and anyway it’s a fundamental of medical practice, for us at least, that we can’t help a patient until we understand them). You can’t decide what to do in future until you know what was wrong with the past, can you?
This project is also rather similar to the workshops we run for corporate clients. I have a great time standing in front of a group of smokers writing all this stuff on a whiteboard and watching their little faces as the lights start to come on in their heads. There are two parts to it. The first is going to help you to understand your individual problems with stopping smoking and in the second you will see why the attempts you made failed, because they failed to address the reasons you can’t stop.
A SHORT CASE HISTORY
From our Eastbourne hypnotherapy branch
Claire tried to stop smoking every year. Every attempt revolved around NRPs, either prescribed by her GP or bought over the counter. It didn’t matter either to the doctor or the chemist that she came back time and again for the same products. For both of them, she was trying and that was what mattered.
But it was not all the mattered. Our Eastbourne hypnotherapist regularly sees clients who do this – trying and failing with pharmaceutical products repeatedly. This is bad for two reasons. First, because failure is bad, and second because every time Claire failed she lost confidence. What the NRPs were doing was destroying her belief that she would ever stop. She was going through the motions, but that was all. For the NHS she was ticking a box marked trying, but that box is not what it seems. Trying and failing actually does more harm than good. By the time Claire saw our Eastbourne hypnotist, she didn’t really believe the hypnotherapy was going to work any more than the NRPs had. This, of course, is nonsense.
What happened was that Claire was so conditioned to failing that she did. Well, not exactly. She did stop smoking after just one session, but a week later she went out drinking with friends and fell into the trap of smoking ‘just one’. Of course just one led to one more, and so on. A couple of days later she called our AfterCare service to say she had failed, which she hadn’t. What she had done was succeed, and then slip up. But because of her history failure was how she saw it. That was the damage the NHS had done. Anyway, she did at least recognise that there was hope, and she asked us to arrange another session with our Eastbourne hypnotherapist.
However, before she came back she had to accept there was some work she needed to do. She hadn’t watched the videos on our website before her first session, so we instructed her to do that now. And we asked her to keep a smoking diary, which we went through with her. This helped her to understand why she was smoking. Now, she wasn’t depending on us to do it for her. Now, she, and the helpdesk counsellors, and our Eastbourne hypnotherapist, were working as a team. This was a new experience for her, because it’s not the NHS smoking cessation model.
After her second session of hypnotherapy in Eastbourne, she stopped smoking and didn’t start again, even when tempted. She had learned some valuable and important lessons, one of which was to take responsibility.
TALK WITH OUR HYPNOTIST * FIRST
When you enquire about hypnotherapy we will discuss whether it’s what you need. If it is, we will have our Eastbourne hypnotist phone you, because you will still want to see if you like them. Hypnotherapy is great, which is why we provide it, but your success will also depend on your relationship with the hypnotherapist you see.
– or acupuncturist, as appropriate..
