One of the main reasons people fail to quit smoking is because they’re afraid they’ll gain weight.
It’s not a completely unfounded fear but it’s more of a self-fulfilling prophecy. People hear, “if I quit I’ll gain weight” and when it’s time to think about quitting for themselves, that voice in their ear tells them, “You’ll get fat… don’t do it…” That’s the nicotine talking.
The bottom line is that you need to start listening to a different voice. The nicotine voice is overwhelming and you need someone to help silence it. That’s where hypnosis comes in.
Why We Eat When We’re Trying to Quit
People eat when they’re trying to quit smoking for a number of reasons, but the biggest ones are to stimulate pleasure centers not being stimulated by nicotine and to counter the depression that is part of nicotine withdrawal.
How Can Hypnosis Help?
Hypnosis pinpoints the root of these motivators and deals with them on a subconscious level. The conscious mind is very passionate; it has specific opinions and feelings. The subconscious, on the other hand, is neutral. It also decides how much weight (no pun intended) is given to the thoughts that determine how easy or difficult it is to quit smoking.
Through hypnosis, I can help turn off those signals that prompt you to eat as a means of compensation. I can block the thoughts that lead to depression and break the emotional addiction to nicotine instantly and permanently. I can keep them from ever reaching your conscious mind by planting suggestions in your subconscious that stop them in their tracks.
The physical withdrawal from nicotine is never easy, but the right suggestions can make it easier for the brain to remember how the body functioned before the introduction of the drug into your system. By making your brain relearn those processes, I can also alleviate the vast majority of physical effects as well. You will no longer feel the urge to eat for comfort during withdrawal because you will be considerably less uncomfortable with the introduction of post-hypnotic suggestions.
Your Next Move
I won’t say unequivocally that you will fail if you try to quit on your own. Some people can. In fact, many people have. The vast majority, though, will often try again and again and fail when the physical and mental effects of withdrawal become too much to bear.
Do not think you’re weak if you can’t quit on your own. Admitting that you need help is a sign of strength and it can only contribute to your success. Hypnosis cannot circumvent free will – if you quit, it’s because you decided to. I’m just here to talk to your subconscious in a way you can’t. If you give your free will to the process, you WILL succeed.
