A SHORT CASE HISTORY

From our Birmingham hypnotherapy branch

Sue couldn’t understand why she couldn’t stop smoking. Her GP had prescribed various nicotine replacement products, at first individually and then, in desperation, in combination. To be fair, her doctor also couldn’t understand why she couldn’t stop, and decided finally that she didn’t want to. Whatever that means. When Sue asked him to refer her to a hypnotist, he said he couldn’t do that. Well, that much was true. GPs can’t refer patients for hypnotherapy, or indeed for any smoking cessation therapy. Because of the contractual relationships between the pharmaceutical companies and the NHS, GPs can only prescribe drug products.

So Sue looked online for hypnotists in Birmingham. There were so many, she got confused, but when she saw National Stop Smoking Centres it became easy. She wondered why her GP had not at least told her about our service, but she was unaware of the above. Patients always are. They simply assume that the NHS informs patients about their health choices. It’s a reasonable assumption, and of course it ought to be true. It isn’t, though.

Sue booked in to see our Birmingham hypnotherapist in Yardley Wood after a lengthy chat with our national advice service. She stopped smoking much more easily than she expected. We could have told her she would, but we didn’t because we don’t. That would constitute a claim, which we don’t make. Sue was one of the lucky people who understood that the pharmaceutical industry may have a monopoly in smoking cessation through the NHS, but patients still have a choice. Hypnotists and acupuncturists are powerless in this arena, but smokers are not.

There are many hypnotherapists and acupuncturists in Birmingham, hundreds perhaps, and they are providing a really important resource for smokers. That the NHS won’t work with therapists is a great shame, because at the end of the day what matters is the health of people in Birmingham, not drug company profits, or GPs’ earnings. Sue actually went back to her doctor to tell him she had stopped smoking with hypnosis, but he wasn’t interested. That surprised her, but it didn’t surprise us when she told us. GPs are paid by the National Health Service to help people to stop smoking, within the NHS model. And therapy is not a part of that model. So when Sue stopped smoking with hypnotherapy, it fell outwith her doctor’s field of interest.

Sue recommended our Birmingham hypnotist to several friends, all of whom had tried to stop smoking and failed with the NHS model. People will find what they need, no matter how many obstacles are put in their way.

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 like to read some of it before you visit our Birmingham hypnosis or acupuncture branch. Here is a very small taster.

….. The benefits to your child of reducing your smoking in pregnancy (as well, remember, as in breast-feeding) are exactly the same as the benefits to you at any other time. Bearing in mind that your unborn child is very very much more sensitive to the poisons in tobacco, every cigarette you don’t smoke is a good thing. If you really can’t, for some reason, stop smoking in pregnancy, the fewer you do smoke the better. The subtitle of this book is ‘How to become a light smoker and feel good about it’, and within the constraints of the difficult subject I would say if you can’t stop smoking when pregnant you can allow yourself to feel good if you reduce the damage you are doing.

So to summarise, if you are pregnant or you think you are likely to get pregnant, try as hard as possible to stop smoking, but if you can’t take cutting down very very seriously.

OTHER STOP SMOKING SERVICES IN BIRMINGHAM

Hypnotherapy or acupuncture might not be what you’re looking for. If they aren’t, and you want to take pharmaceutical products to stop smoking, we suggest you see your GP.. You can also visit the Birmingham Public Health website here.
