THE NSCI STOP SMOKING HANDBOOK

Here’s a snippet from the book. There are lots of pages you can read for free. Do this before attending our Cheltenham acupuncture or hypnosis service.

….. But you, remember, are no longer afraid. You have conquered tobacco and you have conquered your fear of it. Therefore, you will be pleased to know, even the withdrawal symptoms are going to be lessened; in fact, whilst I can’t promise, you might not even have any. How do I know this is true? It’s simple to prove. A good hypnotherapist can convince the brain not to feel withdrawal symptoms when you stop smoking. It’s mind over matter, and it works. Therefore, if you have come this far with this Handbook and you are in control, that is to some extent like having hypnotherapy. You have a mind and it doesn’t matter, or something like that.

So far so good, but it’s all about the psychology, so what can you do in practical ways to make the next bit easier?

Do your stress management exercises from Project 7.

Make the dietary changes from Tutorial 10, including the business with tomatoes.

Buy some herbal cigarettes and use them the way I explain in Project 5.

Ensure your fluid intake is as high as possible.

Put yourself on a detox regime of vitamin C.

Exercise as much as you feel comfortable with, preferably outdoors, but if you feel tired give in and rest.

A SHORT CASE HISTORY

From our Cheltenham acupuncture branch

James had seen two Cheltenham hypnotists before calling us. Surprisingly, he wanted to ask about seeing our own hypnotist. You would expect us to be surprised, because if he has failed twice with it why would he want to try hypnotherapy again? We always ask a lot of questions about any potential client’s stop-smoking history, and once we learned about James’s alarm bells started ringing.

Having failed with any given method does not always rule it out, but it does usually. What we needed to do was to look at why these failures had happened. Was it just that the hypnotists he had seen had got it wrong, or was James not suited for the therapy? Not everyone is (although almost all are). The information James gave us was not conclusive, and in the end we decided it might have been a bit of both. So we suggested he see our Cheltenham acupuncturist instead, and he accepted our rationale for this.

It can be a problem for us when a smoker calls about a particular therapy and we have to advise against it. It doesn’t often happen, but it does happen. More often than not it’s that they want hypnosis and we have to advise against it. It’s not easy to explain why hypnosis might not be the right therapy, and it is completely about the individual. In James’s case, was it because we felt acupuncture was the right therapy, or was it more because hypnotherapy wasn’t? Well, if we don’t have a therapy that is going to suit a smoker we will say so. That is our responsibility. Having said that, there is almost no-one who won’t stop smoking with either hypnotherapy or acupuncture, so it is rare that we have to turn anyone away. James came to our Cheltenham acupuncture service, and in fact he did very well indeed.

Accepting our judgment in these matters is really important. If James had rejected it we would not have tried to persuade him. We won’t ever do that. Very rarely, we get a smoker who is set on having a therapy which we know is wrong for them but can’t convince them of that. Some people just have to learn the hard way.

Before seeing him, we gave our acupuncturist in Cheltenham a full run-down of the conversation we had had with James. Knowing the patient’s background is really helpful. This is a very important part of our work. We are NOT a referral service. Every smoker is seen by a Partner therapist as a member of our team, and the teamwork goes on until the patient has stopped smoking, and for long after if needed. There are of course not a few acupuncturists in Cheltenham, but there is only one who works in this way.

Had James been suitable for another session of hypnotherapy, we do of course have a hypnotherapist in Cheltenham as well. We have both therapies so we can be quite sure we are giving the correct, unbiased advise to every smoker. That was what James got – the right advice, the right therapy and the right therapist. And all of this is why he successfully stopped smoking. And by the way, the final part of what we do is long-term support, and this is why James not only stopped smoking but stayed stopped.

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 Cheltenham Borough Council website here.
