A SHORT CASE HISTORY
From our Doncaster hypnotherapy branch
Charlie didn’t want to stop smoking, so why did he call us? But every smoker is in conflict. You want to be a non-smoker, but you wish you didn’t have to go through the process of stopping. It’s like going to the dentist. No-one wants to go, but we do it because we want our teeth fixed.
What Charlie really wanted was our Doncaster hypnotherapist to make this all go away, as if he had never smoked. He wanted to be someone who doesn’t smoke. He just didn’t want to go through the becoming bit. Why? Well, it’s much the same for everyone. Stopping smoking shouldn’t be hard. But it is, because, in short, the NHS puts people on drug products that let them down. We’re not saying stopping is easy, but we are saying that with the right therapy it usually is. It has been turned into a big problem largely by the NHS.
And Charlie had been through all that. He had been put on one NRP after another, with some short-term success only. So what had been a bit difficult now seemed to him impossible. It’s hardly surprising that by the time he came to us he was so convinced he couldn’t stop that the only way he had to express himself was to say he didn’t want to. This belief comes largely from the myth that you have to want to stop to do so, which means that if you fail it must be because you didn’t want to. Well, we have some news for people who believe this. Our Doncaster hypnotist sees people all the time who don’t want to. And yet they come to her, and they stop. Why is that?
It comes down to what ‘want’ means. As we suggested above, almost everyone who smokes wants to stop. So why don’t they? Because every time they try and fail it makes them believe they don’t want to. Think about the number of smokers locally, and how many of them are on some kind of NRP, or an electric cigarette. Most of them are going to fail. And many of them are going, in the end, to approach a Doncaster hypnotherapist for help. But by that time they have come to believe they can’t so they don’t want to, which is where we started with Charlie.
We had to explain all of this to Charlie, and he did finally believe it. He looked back at his failures and doing that he could chart his growing lack of faith, first in the products he was given and then in himself. Every Doncaster hypnotherapist sees people like Charlie regularly. The way to succeed, though, is to help the client to understand why they have convinced themselves that they don’t want to stop smoking. Then, they can move forward with doing what they really want, which is to become someone who doesn’t smoke.
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, and we publish a book on reduction. ‘No, You Don’t Have to Stop Smoking’ will be of interest even if you do want to stop completely. Why not take a look at it before you visit our Doncaster hypnosis branch. Here is a taster to get you started.
Weight gain and sugar
First, let’s establish why people put on weight. Weight comes from food. It doesn’t magically appear, you have to eat it. If you eat more than you burn as energy, some of it will be left. This is called fat.
If eating more than you need for fuel makes fat, why do people put on weight when they stop smoking? Well, first of all they don’t; some people put on weight when they stop smoking. Most people don’t put on weight; in fact some people lose weight when they stop, so that drives a coach and horses through any excuse you have used in the past for not stopping. On the other hand maybe you did stop and maybe you put weight on which kind of contradicts what I just said, except it doesn’t, because if you did gain weight you are actually in a minority. Nonetheless, if you did you have a valid worry that when you cut down your smoking this will happen again, so let’s have a look at that idea and see if it’s at all likely – at whether what happened when you stopped smoking is likely to happen when you just smoke a lot less.
There is an unhelpful myth (in that all myths are unhelpful, because by definition they are not true) that when you stop smoking your metabolism slows down and therefore you are bound to gain weight. Apart from the fact that most people wouldn’t know what a metabolism was if it smacked them in the face, is this actually true? Well, yes and no (wouldn’t you just know there isn’t a simple answer?)
OK, it is true that smoking slightly increases the metabolism, which is the rate at which your body converts sugars into energy. But first it is only a slight effect and second it varies, which means that for a lot of people the effect is so slight as to be unimportant, and thirdly the fact the smoking can increase your metabolism and therefore stopping smoking can decrease it does not mean that decreasing it is a bad thing.
TALK WITH OUR HYPNOTIST FIRST
When you enquire about hypnotherapy we will discuss whether it’s what you need. If it is, we will have our Doncaster hypnotist phone you, because you will still want to see if you like them. Hypnotherapy is great, which is why we provide it, but your success will also depend on your relationship with the hypnotherapist you see.
