A SHORT CASE HISTORY
From our Kenilworth hypnotherapy branch
One of the biggest single reasons why people fail to stop smoking is ignorance. We mean that politely. Very few smokers have the knowledge they should have about addiction and psychological dependence in order to stop. You could say that is why they pay hypnotists or acupuncturists to help them. We would be more inclined to say that is why they pay therapists to DO it for them.
One of the questions we ask potential hypnosis clients is why they can’t stop. Usually, they don’t know, so we ask them if they are addicted and they say yes. Marianne said yes, without hesitating. She wanted to book up with our Kenilworth hypnotherapist but, like most smokers she had almost no idea why she couldn’t stop or how hypnosis helps.
So how does hypnotherapy, which is a psychological therapy, help you to overcome addiction, which is physiological? The answer is that it does it indirectly. Addiction creates psychological dependence, which means you come to believe you need to smoke. The problem with that is that even if you didn’t need to you still believe you do. Addiction can be tackled directly or indirectly. Directly means with acupuncture or Addiction Management. Indirectly is how our Kenilworth hypnotist helped Marianne. By reversing the belief that she needed to smoke, Marianne didn’t need to. Yes, she was still addicted, for the first few days of not smoking, but she didn’t care. That is exactly what hypnosis does. It stops you caring about smoking.
Every hypnotist has a slightly different way of doing this, but the end result is the same. We’re not going to go here into the detail of what our Kenilworth hypnotherapist did for Marianne. Suffice it to say that when she came out of the session she had a vague awareness that she used to smoke, but she couldn’t think why. And for this reason it didn’t actually matter that she didn’t understand her own smoking. She accepted what the hypnotherapy had done, without needing to go into the detail. Is that a good thing? Well, we could argue that we like clients to understand, but that’s more professional pride than anything.
Our Kenilworth hypnotist is always happy to explain the technicalities for clients who are interested. If they’re not, though, then there is no need to go into it.
NO, YOU DON'T HAVE TO STOP SMOKING
Sometimes, people come to us not to stop smoking but for smoking reduction. It’s a choice they make. We publish a book on reduction. It’s called, No, You Don’t Have to Stop Smoking. You might be interested to read some of it before you visit our Kenilworth hypnosis branch. Here is a taster.
You will stop feeling guilty
The nagging might irritate you, and it might make you cut off your nose to spite your face, which means smoking to spite the people who tell you not to, but you will probably admit that actually you feel guilty about being a smoker. You might feel guilty because your husband / wife / partner / children / grandchildren don’t want you to smoke. They might nag you, yes, but you know it’s because they care, and that makes you feel bad because you haven’t been able to stop.
Becoming a light smoker is inevitably going to reduce the amount of guilt you feel in direct proportion to the amount you cut down. So if you reduce from say 40 to 10 a day, you are going to feel 75% less guilty. If you cut down from 20 to five a day, you are also going to feel 75% less guilty.
