A SHORT CASE HISTORY

From our Woking hypnotherapy branch

The issue Lorraine had was that she confused habit and association. She said her problem with smoking cessation was the habit, and then she went on to describe the triggers that made her smoke. So is association (by which we mean what you associate with certain trigger situations or events) the same thing as habit? Perhaps no-one has ever even discussed association with you. But we did, before Lorraine got to the stage of seeing our Woking hypnotherapist.

In all fairness, to the layman the two issues are much the same, but in our work we do need to be very specific about the words we use. This is because if we use the wrong words we are probably trying to solve the wrong problems. The wrong words can lead you down blind alleys. In practical terms what this means is that if we had simply accepted what Lorraine told us we would not have been helping her to address the actual reasons she couldn’t stop smoking. A hypnotherapist who doesn’t do that is unlikely to be of much help. (We could say the same about the National Health Service, but we won’t.)

For our Woking hypnotist to be able to address Lorraine’s specific issues, we needed her to understand them first. Or at least to be able to express them, even if she wasn’t quite sure what that all meant. We don’t ask too much of our clients, but on the other hand this isn’t something we were doing to Lorraine, it was something she needed to do, with our help. In short, it wasn’t essential for her to understand everything, but it would help if she did.

Habit is something you do without thinking. Lorraine was in the habit of smoking, and yes, that habit was often connected to certain triggers. But we said often, not always. The triggers were in fact another issue. What our hypnotherapist in Woking had to do was to tease out of the client what her triggers were. This way, she could tailor the hypnosis to address those specific triggers. In fact they were pretty much the usual ones. Most smokers will be triggered by, say, a cup of tea or coffee, and obviously by alcoholic drinks. Lorraine’s triggers also included getting into her car at the end of the working day, and another was after she had put her children to bed. This one is really quite common.

Once she had a complete list of Lorraine’s triggers, our hypnotist in Woking was able to address each one separately within the session. This is in fact what hypnosis is so good at. Following the session, the triggers were no longer triggers at all.

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 Woking hypnosis or acupuncture branch.

….. Another example might be helpful? Say you are really stressed at work, and smoking gives you a chance to get out of the office and take a cigarette break. And then after work you reward yourself for getting through the day by going out with your friends for a drink, but they smoke and that undoes your resolve not to. You’ve got two interconnected issues here, so you need to separate them.

Resolving the problem at work will remove the reason why you smoke during the day, or at least one of the reasons. On the other hand, finding some other way of de-stressing at the end of the work day will resolve the second problem. Or you could ask your friends for their support and still go with them but give them permission to beat you about the head if you ask them for a cigarette.

The purpose of this exercise it to disentangle the web of reasons you can’t stop smoking so that you deal with each one separately and eliminate it. This will leave you with the big one, whatever it might be. Only you can work out what it is, but I promise you I know from long experience with thousands of smokers there is usually one main reason why they have failed to stop. If every smoker analysed their smoking in this way, they would, all of them, have a much better chance of stopping.

And what are you going to do now? You’re going to ignore what I just said? No, I don’t think so. What you are really going to do, which I’m sure you meant, is from now on you are going to think before you light every cigarette, and you are going to ask yourself if you really want it, and if you don’t you are going to not smoke it. Why? Because if you can’t control when you smoke how are you going to control whether you smoke?

OTHER STOP SMOKING SERVICES IN WOKING

Acupuncture or hypnotherapy might not be what you’re looking for. If it isn’t, and you want to take pharmaceutical products to stop smoking, we suggest you see your GP.. You can also visit the NHS Smokefree website here.
