If you're a smoker, it will be easy to think of reasons to quit. Perhaps you have shortness of breath, or other health issues. Maybe you're sick of being nagged, or you just don't like that part of yourself. Maybe you even know someone that has lost their life to cigarettes.
So many good reasons, but you still do it, perhaps even enjoy it. If you have attempted to quit, it didn't last and it was easy to find an excuse to start again.
Quitting on your own IS hard because you're dealing with the subconscious mind which, once upon a time, decided that smoking was good for you. It made you feel rebellious, your friends did it, it was cool. Or perhaps it relieved stress or helped you cope in certain situations. When we do something once and it works, we do it again, and again and before we know it a habit is formed.
So then when you make a conscious decision to stop, there's a part of you that tries to defy you and undermine your best efforts because it still thinks that smoking is good for you. Smoking has become so much a part of your life that it seems impossible to imagine your morning coffee, your working day or drinks with mates without a cigarette in your hand. You can use all of your willpower to resist, but the part of you that still wants you to smoke will create cravings and self talk that will encourage you that one more can't hurt, it feels good to give in and you're back where you started.
Unlike traditional stop smoking aids, which work to suppress the craving, hypnosis works directly with the subconscious, which is where the habit resides.
You have total control at all times, but by allowing yourself to completely relax, your subconscious is receptive to new ideas and the positive association to cigarettes can be removed.
If you're committed to quit, a single smoking cessation session could be all that stands in the way of you becoming a non smoker. No cravings, no substitutes.

"I cannot recommend more highly enough Kath's services. I saw Kath 6 weeks ago tomorrow to quit smoking! At 38 years of age & being a "social smoker" (whilst drinking) for the last 11 years. I had finally decided it was time to quit once & for all as I noticed that smoking was controlling everything I did. It consumed my family time, my thoughts, my dreams, where I went & who I saw! I also found I was drinking daily & clock watching 5 pm for a glass of wine & (3 quick cigarettes which would then turn into 10).
I now comfortably say I do not smoke to people when they ask. I don't feel like one, I don't crave one, I had no withdrawal symptoms in fact I feel like I have never smoked. I know I did, I wish I had done this years ago. I can only put this all down to Kath & her expertise, attention to detail & the hypnotherapy session I partook in."
