Why don’t people just stop smoking?

As an ex-smoker myself who tried & failed to stop more times than most, I understand exactly how you might feel when considering stopping smoking.

I have helped hundreds of people stop smoking for life – I know this problem from the inside out and I am fully confident that every smoker can stop more easily than they think.

Most people know that by stopping smoking they will:

  • Save thousands of pounds a year
  • Add years to their life
  • Save their health before it’s too late
  • Stop affecting those around them through passive smoking

So why do people continue to smoke?

Experience gained from the USA & the UK shows that the answer is the same across the world….FEAR.

  • That you’ll have to give up your crutch or pleasure
  • That you won’t be able to enjoy life or handle stress
  • You will put on weight
  • That you will have to suffer awful trauma to get free
  • That you will never be completely free of the craving

All of these fears are examples of one overriding fear.

The one reason that you have not stopped smoking is that you: Fear that it’s going to be too painful & too difficult!

As an ex-smoker myself I understand the feelings of powerless around stopping smoking & have developed a programme which combines a number of therapies to make it easy

Stopping smoking using will power alone has a 2% success rate, with nicotine replacement therapy just  4%
I have a 93% success rate & offer free back up support if you start smoking any time from 2 days to 2 years down the line.  All you will need to do is commit to keeping your alcohol consumption down to no more than 1 or 2 drinks at a time for 2 or 3 weeks & to use the tools I give you to clear any cravings.
1,000 people stop smoking for life every day in the UK – you can choose to be one of them!

How the unconscious mind makes it easy

The unconscious mind runs everything – your heartbeat, your fears, your habits, your beliefs about what you can & cannot achieve. If you can change your unconscious mind you can change your life.

The unconscious mind is always trying to help us out but tends to take the shortest route to solve a problem eg when we have nicotine craving it will suggest a cigarette. However, using Hypnosis & NeuroLinguistic Programming (NLP) we can enable the unconscious mind to see the longer-term benefits of choosing a different route. Once the unconscious mind has decided to support you in your conscious decision to stop smoking success is easy  – if any cravings arise you simply use a basic acupressure technique, which I will teach you in the session, & dissolve cravings in less than a minute.

What will happen:

The stop smoking programme is a single session that lasts for 2 hours.
We start off talking a little about the physiology of smoking – it’s good to have it top of mind to help convince the unconscious mind that the change is of long term benefit. Then we go through each of your personal triggers for smoking eg stress, boredom, socially with a drink, using a technique called NeuroLinguistic Programming. This is a technique which uses language & visualisation to shift the mental programming we have around cigarettes. We develop new strategies for you to gain the same benefits without cigarettes eg a breathing technique to help relieve stress.

I use painless ear acupuncture to help you with detoxing & reduce cravings (optional)

After the first hour, you are in a position where you are giving nothing up you are just planning to do things differently.

Then I teach you an acupressure technique which enables you to clear nicotine cravings within about 30 seconds.
Then we do the hypnotherapy session which reinforces all the changes at an unconscious level & is recorded as an MP3 so that you can use it at home.
I then give you notes on everything we have covered & on what to expect over the following days, weeks & months so that there are no surprises.
You leave feeling positive, confident & ready for a smoke-free life of health & vitality.

Free Backup support:

I offer free backup support if you start smoking any time from 2 days to 2 years down the line.
Over 90% of my clients have only one session – almost invariably if I see people a second time its because they had more alcohol in the 3 week detox period after the session than recommended or they didn’t use the acupressure technique.

I strongly encourage all clients to come back if they are struggling at any time – even years down the road – I take great satisfaction from helping people to stop smoking for life – I know how impossible it seems when you are a smoker & how easy it is to stop for life using these techniques.
