A SHORT CASE HISTORY
From our Beckenham hypnotherapy branch
We occasionally see clients who have never tried to stop smoking before, but want hypnosis. As a not-for-profit public service, we ask ourselves why anyone spends money they might not need to. Anyone who has tried to stop and failed can justify the cost of hypnotherapy, but what about those who haven’t?
Some independent Beckenham hypnotists might take such clients on, but we do at least ask why they want to come to us. This is what we asked Suzanne. Her answer was that she knew she couldn’t stop smoking without help. She couldn’t explain how she knew, she just knew. It turned out that she did at least have some idea. Whilst she claimed not to have tried stopping, that wasn’t exactly true. She had stopped when she was pregnant, and she had been using an electric cigarette recently. She wasn’t clear about why with the latter, but in her mind it was something to do with stopping. Having said that, she told our Beckenham hypnotist that she considered she had never seriously tried to stop.
Perhaps she was right. Pregnancy is a common reason why women stop smoking, but Suzanne started smoking again soon after. That’s disappointingly common. As for the electric cigarette, was that ‘trying to stop smoking’? Even Suzanne wasn’t sure about that. Which left us with the question: did she actually need hypnosis to stop smoking? This brings us to a typical reason why people come for hypnotherapy. Almost every client we see has failed with NRPs, which convinces them that they can’t stop. The fact is that most people who use NRPs also haven’t tried stopping on their own. It’s part of the myth that when you come to stop smoking you have to use some method. Most of the clients seen by our Beckenham hypnotist believe that a ‘method’ is essential.
We did at least give Suzanne the option to delay her hypnotherapy appointment and try to stop smoking on her own. She was adamant though that she wanted to make an appointment with our Beckenham hypnotherapist as soon as possible. In the event, she succeeded very easily. Too easily. Perhaps, to be sure she even needed the hypnosis, but does that really matter?
THE NSCI STOP SMOKING HANDBOOK
Here’s a snippet from the book. There are lots of pages you can read for free. We suggest you do this before you come to our Beckenham hypnosis branch.
Work out if you need help and where to get it.
You might just have bought this Handbook, or some lovely person gave it to you, and you want to stop but you really don’t know what would be the right way to go about it. Can I offer you some guidance about choosing a smoking cessation product or programme?
Not easily, no, because to be honest I don’t know you. When a smoker calls us we spend perhaps fifteen minutes on the phone talking about their problems with stopping before we feel we can make a recommendation. But since you have read this far it seems only fair to have a bash, so with your help here goes. Answer the questions here about your previous attempts to stop.
