If you want to stop smoking, hypnosis is the best way, according to extensive research. This is true even if you’ve tried, and failed before.

Hypnosis is the most effective method to stop smoking according to the largest ever scientific comparison of ways of breaking the habit”

New Scientist, volume 136, issue 1845

Hypnosis is the Best Way to Stop Smoking

The University of Iowa carried out a review of more than 600 smoking cessation. Altogether 72,000 people were studied. The Journal of Applied Psychology, reported that hypnosis was “many times more effective than *Nicotine Replacement Therapy” to help you stop smoking. *such as gum, patches, lozenges, nasal sprays and inhalers.

Quite smoking with hypnosis – success rates

There is an 85% success rate after one session of hypnosis, according to the review. Other “first attempt” success rates are much lower. Acupuncture has a 25% success rate after 1 session. Nicotine gum (which has side effects) scores only 11%. Nicotine patches (also with side effects) doesn’t do much better, with 13%. On average, those wanting to quit smoking made an average of six attempts with Nicotine Replacement Therapy before they were able to stop.

Individually Tailored Treatment

Before hypnosis, you will be asked specific questions about your own smoking habits, and why you want to stop. Your answers will determine which particular hypnosis techniques will particularly help you. Everyone’s smoking habit is slightly different. Knowing YOUR triggers really helps us to work out how to help you stop smoking. We’ll also give you practical tips on how to retain your motivation after leaving the therapy room, including self-hypnosis. You’ll also be given access to downloads to help reinforce the what we do in the session.

How Many Sessions?

Whilst hypnosis can effectively help you to quit smoking in one session, if you feel more comfortable with two then this is what we’ll do. This can particularly help if you smoke more than 15 cigarettes a day. But most people (even heavy smokers) give up completely after just one session. However you want to do it, we’re available to support you by telephone or email. This can be between sessions and after after you’ve finished.

Do You Really Want to Stop Smoking Now?

Motivation is hugely important! Every time someone contacts us, you get a free initial telephone conversation to find out whether you really do want to stop smoking, right now. If you only want to stop smoking because someone else is pressurising you, you’ll find it much harder to stop. The same applies if you’re trying to stop smoking when things are unusually stressful or difficult.

We’ll also help you work out any underlying problems which make you want a cigarette more. If you feel stressed, anxious or are struggling with or emotional problems, we’ll help you deal with these. So you’ll feel happier, relaxed and more self confident, which will obviously help you stop smoking.

Stop Smoking – Without Weight Gain

There’s already so much information available about the health problems, cost and other difficulties caused by smoking. These can be part of the hypnosis session, if you’d like. But many people worried about weight gain when they stop smoking. What we concentrate on in the session is up to you. It depends on what you have told us about your own personal reasons for smoking and wanting to give up. The treatment is individual to you and will be tailored specifically for your needs. But if you’re one of those people who worry about putting on weight as a result of having quit smoking, then your hypnotherapy sessions can also include suggestions about weight loss. This has been tried and tested many times, and has been extremely effective.
