NO, YOU DON'T HAVE TO STOP SMOKING
We help people to stop smoking, but we also help heavy smokers to become light smokers – IF THAT IS WHAT THEY WANT. We have a book on this subject, and there are pages you can read for free. You might like to do this before you come to our Colwyn Bay hypnosis branch. Here is a taster.
Nicotine replacement products (NRPs) come in a variety of forms. There is, as you probably know (because you have probably tried to stop smoking with them) nicotine gum, patches, lozenges, micro-tabs and inhalators, and what they all have in common is that they are delivery methods for nicotine. Included in this list of products is also the electric cigarette, always mislabelled as electronic cigarette. The product uses a battery to heat nicotine, which does not, by any stretch whatever, make it electronic. The word was coined by the manufacturers to make the product look more high-tech, and the media simply accept it uncritically, which is hardly impressive, is it?
The purpose of NRPs is to give you nicotine, of course, so you don’t have to smoke tobacco to get a fix of the drug. The theory is that doing this will help to wean you off the drug, which in fact has no scientific basis at all. The effect of NRPs is almost entirely placebo. Having said that, up to 11% of users have been shown to succeed with them (which is of course an appalling failure rate). There are two reasons why NRPs are so unsuccessful. The first is the mistaken belief that you can use nicotine to wean yourself off nicotine, and the second is the mistaken belief that taking any drug is likely to solve the complex issues around dependence on smoking. Which of course leads us to the benefit of therapy over drugs, but we’ll come to that in due course.
