A SHORT CASE HISTORY
From our Haslemere hypnotherapy branch
Ann rang to ask about stopping smoking but there was doubt in her voice. She was asking about our Haslemere hypnotherapy service, but she seemed just a little too eager to go ahead without really understanding what it does. Is it necessary for clients to understand hypnotherapy? Yes and no. No, if they really don’t want too, but then we need to ask why they don’t. It’s not something our Haslemere hypnotherapist does to clients, it’s something client and therapist work through together.
Most hypnotists will reject a client who doesn’t show complete motivation to stop smoking. We don’t do that. We know that every smoker has doubts. Ann wanted to but she also didn’t want to. She needed to stop, for health reasons, and on one level she also wanted to. But like all smokers she was afraid to. It’s a long story, but it’s this conflict that keeps people smoking. It’s created by the addiction to nicotine, and that in turn creates this psychological dependence. This is what our Haslemere hypnotist works so successfully on.
The reason Ann contacted National Stop Smoking Centres was that she had seen on our website that we do something no-one else does. We give clients not just one option but two. We know that because of the fear of stopping so many smokers are in conflict. This conflict stops people trying to stop. This is where independent Haslemere hypnotherapists have a problem, because very often local smokers aren’t even asking them for help. What attracted Ann was our second option, which is smoking reduction. This means taking control of your smoking but retaining the option to smoke occasionally.
Does this mean we encourage people not to stop smoking? Absolutely not. Our work in smoking cessation has always been about choice. We don’t tell people they can’t smoke. What we do is use hypnotherapy or acupuncture to give them a choice. Almost everyone chooses not to smoke, but occasionally a client will choose to choose instead.
What happened in Ann’s case was that she saw smoking reduction with our Haslemere hypnotist as a way of removing the fear of stopping. As it happened, she did stop. So by denying what she wanted she got what she wanted in the end.
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 coming to our Haslemere hypnosis branch.
….. What we have done so far is establish that being a light smoker is better than being a heavy smoker. So, worst case, you don’t stop, I want you to make a promise now, to yourself, not to me, that you will, if all else fails, become a light smoker. Look, I know it’s not what you want but we have a quaint saying in the Institute that goes like this:
If you can’t control how many you smoke, how are you going to control whether you smoke?
So now you are going to look at controlling when you smoke as a prelude, let’s say preparation, for stopping. You are going to learn to control when you smoke so that you are better prepared for controlling whether you smoke. Because control is, after all, what it’s about, isn’t it? No, I know you don’t want to do it, but humour me, because funnily enough I do know what I’m doing here. Anyway, what have you got to lose?
The first stage is to learn more about your smoking, and this means keeping a diary. It’s easy to do, and actually it’s hugely informative, and I think you will enjoy it and even if you don’t life isn’t supposed to be endless fun, you know, so just do it anyway.
Every time you smoke a cigarette, make an entry in the diary. Printed here is a diary for one day, but some people like to do both a workday and a weekend day which is probably a good idea, and some people like to do it for a whole week because they’re masochists but that’s their business, but either way just copy it out onto a sheet of paper, which I expect you had thought of already, and you can do as many days as you like.
