Why do people smoke?

It is well known that smoking is harmful to your health and cigarettes are very expensive to buy.

Even though 63% of smokers say they want to quit, they keep smoking anyway. So why do people smoke? The reasons can be any combination of:

  • Fear of weight gain
  • Fear of withdrawal symptoms
  • Belief they have insufficient willpower to quit
  • Smoking to relieve stress and relax
  • Addiction to cigarettes

Quit SmokingBut the main reason is that smoking is not actually under people’s conscious control and it is done automatically as an unconscious action. One of the most successful therapies for addictions such as smoking is hypnotherapy.

When it comes to quit smoking, nicotine in not the major problem it has been made out to be. Nicotine can be out of your system in three to four days. Yet people can go cold-turkey for weeks or months and still find themselves drift back to smoking.

This is because the Habit Of Being a Smoker has not been broken.

So unless the individual reasons unique to each person are addressed, there is unlikely to be any success in permanently stopping smoking.

All sessions are conducted one-on-one; this ensures a higher success rate. When the individual reasons and the daily habits around smoking that you have are being targeted with something as powerful as hypnosis, change happens.
