A SHORT CASE HISTORY
From our Bridgend hypnotherapy branch
David came up with something that we do see from time to time. He had stopped smoking very easily with hypnosis almost three years earlier. That was the first point to note – that it had been easy. The second point was that when we asked him if he had been a happy non-smoker he said yes. Very much so.
This raised two issues for our Bridgend hypnotist. Why had David started smoking again if he had enjoyed not smoking? And why did he need help to stop again? Well, in fact everyone who stops smoking is happy about it. So why had David started again? For the usual reasons. The question this raises is how anyone who is happy not smoking would take a cigarette from a friend over a few drinks.
Of all the smokers our hypnotists see, most have stopped before, some more than once. What this tells us is that something overrides the pleasure of not smoking at certain times. Everyone who stops smoking remembers that they used to enjoy it. This is false because smoking is not in fact enjoyable. Part of what hypnosis does is to help the client understand this. Most smokers understand it on the intellectual level, but our hypnotist helped David to understand it on the emotional level. It is this emotional understanding that is critical to stopping smoking, and it’s what hypnotherapy is so good at.
Another issue for David is one we also see regularly. People who enjoyed not smoking are afraid of stopping again. We talk of fear as something very real for smokers. But it’s also real for people who start again. Their memory of not smoking is good, and yet they fear stopping again. This is because one of the effects of addiction is to create fear of not being addicted. And it’s the level our Bridgend hypnotist worked on with David. Breaking this irrational fear was what David needed, and again it’s what hypnotherapy is so good at.
