A SHORT CASE HISTORY
From our Bromley acupuncture branch
Brendan didn’t know whether he need hypnosis or acupuncture to stop smoking. So the first thing we needed to do was get his history of trying to stop. Only by doing this can we establish what the problems are with stopping. By seeing what has or hasn’t worked we can decide which therapy to recommend.
Brendan had been looking for a Bromley hypnotherapist when he found us by chance. Our website showed him there is an alternative, and instead of helping this actually confused him. He had thought he needed hypnotherapy, but in fact would acupuncture work better?
What he actually asked us was which therapy is more effective. The answer we gave him, which we give anyone who asks it, was that neither is better than the other. The one that Brendan needed was the one that was going to work for him. Having said that, for most smokers it doesn’t really matter whether they have acupuncture or hypnosis. They both work so much better than the drug products they have used before. This is because therapy, by definition, works better than drug products. The products provided by the NHS have a published success rate of 11%. No Bromley hypnotherapist would be able to get away with such poor results.
So how did we assess which therapy Brendan should have? Well, there is a range of questions we ask. We wanted to know how many cigarettes he was smoking, and how long he had smoked for, but those are not the most important questions. That was about which methods he had already tried to stop smoking with. He had been on all the usual nicotine replacement products (NRPs), but even that wasn’t what we wanted to know. We wanted to know how he had reacted to them. The answer to this question told us that Brendan should see our Bromley acupuncturist (the reasons are too complex to go into here).
Although he had contacted us about hypnosis, Brendan accepted our assessment. He realised that his reason for choosing hypnotherapy had not been based on any science but simply that he had heard about it. Most smokers have. It is in fact the best-known smoking cessation therapy there is, and more than three quarters of our clients have it. But Brendan saw our acupuncturist in Bromley and he knew, after just the first treatment, that it was the right choice. That’s one of the great things about stopping smoking with therapy – it’s so quick.
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 Bromley hypnotist or acupuncturist.
You haven’t tried
If you have never tried to stop you should continue working through the Handbook. If you succeed, that’s great. If you don’t, at the very least you will have a far better idea why you can’t stop than you did before and what the best approach would be for your personal circumstances.
You tried on your own
This is usually called cold turkey, but what turkeys, regardless of their temperature, have to do with stopping smoking is a mystery to me.
Did you stop, completely, for a week or more? If you did, you have proved you can stop. Have you done it more than once?
If not, you have done what a lot of smokers do. You have convinced yourself you failed. Actually, you didn’t fail, you succeeded and then you went back to smoking, which is different, and if you can make yourself believe this there is no reason why, with the help of the Handbook, you shouldn’t succeed again.
If you have succeeded several times, in other words you stop and start regularly, you are almost there. Perhaps with the help of the Handbook you will now stop for ever, but if not consider joining the Institute’s research project, epsilon.
What you don’t need is to be spending a lot of money or taking drugs to do what you have already proved you can do without them.
