Perhaps you can remember the tale about the Emperor's New Clothes? How only a little boy hadn't heard the story about the cloth being only visible to a wise person - that only a fool couldn't see it - and so he said to the crowd at the Emperor's Grand Procession something on the lines of 'that silly man is starkers!' Then everybody noticed that indeed he was!! Well I never!!

Smoking is about False Beliefs,
a 'Very Successful' Compulsive, Dopamine Soaked, Habit
and a perception of anxiety and fear
- NOT an addiction to Nicotine!

Smoking Cessation is about Changing those Beliefs and Habits.

Unfortunately we have all been brought up being told that 'Nicotine is addictive,
highly addictive' and if we are told something often enough by people that we give credence to such as
 The Government, The NHS, Doctors, Scientists and even The Drug Companies we tend to believe it,
we validate it and it becomes part of our 'Truth' part of our own model of reality...
...and of course the government has never lied to the British public has it...

We all have our own model of the world we live in, our own 'Truth',
our own perception of reality, our own beliefs, our own blind spots.

This course challenges those beliefs, exposes your blind spots and exposes the Truth
that will make stopping smoking easier than you could have possibly realised.

 

Using clinical hypnosis to help you remove the fear of stopping smoking before you stop
- specifically aimed at long-term and heavy smokers.

Stopping smoking in Hampshire

"Hypnosis is the most effective way of giving up smoking, according to the largest ever scientific comparison of ways of breaking the habit. Willpower it turns out, counts for very little..."

(New Scientist vol 136 issue 1845 page 6)

Stopping smoking can be easy for some lucky people; the majority of smokers are, quietly, scared stiff of not smoking - almost as if it is a 'reverse phobia'; many just can't see themselves as non-smokers and therefore carry on unhappily smoking and some find JUST BEING TOLD they are a non-smoker doesn't work, in fact it annoys them.

I am not just a hypnotherapist but also I have been awarded a Diploma in Smoking Cessation Therapy by the College of Integrated Therapies. Which is validated by the General Hypnotherapy Standards Council as being above the entry standard required to become a
 member of the Central Register of Stop Smoking Therapists
.

 Chris Holmes' book "Nicotine - The Drug That Never Was - Volume 1" provides all the information needed to help smokers and therapists to learn the truth about Nicotine - I never really believed it about Nicotine either! You can find out more about his book at http://www.truthwillout.co.uk

 

The NHS promote it at a cost of over 130Million a year and the NRT advertisers' tell you that you need therapeutic Nicotine to get off your 'addiction' to Nicotine - BUT:-

Nicotine is not a Drug - It Is Just an Insecticide!

As Identified in 'The Biggest Medical Mistake of the 20th Century' (Chris Holmes 2008)

 

I can't even agree with the late Alan Carr that  all you are feeling in wanting your next ‘ciggy’ is to top up the falling Nicotine level from your last one – that it is the last cigarette you had that makes you want the next one.

'Withdrawal' is purely your Subconscious Mind reminding you, in tandem with a powerful neurochemical called Dopamine (which is an emotionally tagged and a 'high expectation' giving neurotransmitter) in a way you will not continue to ignore, that this is something you normally do every so often...every hour or so - or when at the pub...or with friends...or when feeling stressed...because you usually do! But the Subconscious Mind can be asked to turn those reminders off - permanently!

Introduction

Society doesn’t help in its terminology of stopping smoking by referring to it as  ‘Giving-up’ or being a 'Quitter’ - you give up something that you enjoy and like and if you are a ‘Quitter’ you can’t finish something and are perhaps seen as unreliable by others.

Even the NHS appears to advocate that smokers should be afraid – and not only suggest, but provide ‘Nicotine Replacement Therapy’ (Nicotine) to help them through it!

But if Nicotine was addictive, wouldn't that be like giving a Heroin Addict - Heroin, or an Alcoholic - Alcohol?

The thing is if you don't perceive yourself as a non-smoker or ex-smoker your chances of success are greatly reduced in stopping smoking. If your self-image/self-perception, in your Subconscious Mind, is still that of a smoker how do you think you can behave as a non-smoker and not smoke? You can't!!

Orr's Law states (in terms of self)

 'What the Thinker thinks, the Prover proves'.

Before stopping smoking you need to understand the Dopamine Trap and explain to your Subconscious Mind that you are now a non-smoker and be happy with that image of yourself. Then:-

your mind

will prove

to you

that

you are

a happy non-smoker.

 

Therefore in this smoking cessation programme, based in clinical hypnosis, you believe that you are - and explain to your Subconscious Mind - why you are a happy non-smoker, before you stub out your last fag. This is not a matter of being told you are an non-smoker (and a happy one to boot) but experiencing it for yourself - unlearning old bad habits and experiencing for yourself a new smoke free you, happily coping, without a crutch that you don't need or want any more.

Cigarettes, Addiction and Nicotine Effects

Don’t worry I am not going to bang on about smoking being a filthy habit that makes you and your clothes stink, robs you of years of your life, robs you of about 2000 a year (based on 20 per day), or about the 4000+ chemicals in cigarette smoke or the 60+ cancer causing chemicals (including Polonium 210, Benzene, Formaldehyde etc)  or the Hydrogen Cyanide, Carbon Monoxide and other poisons; and I am certainly not going to tell you that you have to stop doing it otherwise it will kill you – you know all that.  

But why do you continue to do it?

The Mechanics of Smoking

Before lighting up, when they can have one, the smoker has spent the last - however long - saying to him/herself ‘I need a fag’. Although the actual triggers for smoking are under the control of the Subconscious Mind as it is a behaviour that has become predictable in its regularity/ repetitiveness. The 'withdrawal' is purely and simply our Subconscious Mind telling us - with increasing ferocity and increasing Dopamine soaked links- that we have forgotten to do something that we normally do.

Smokers light a fag, inhale deeply, cough harshly (often bringing up a lump of phlegm), and say ‘that feels better’ as the reminders from our Subconscious Mind are quietened.

Also to help the body ‘relax’ smoking, with the only effect of Nicotine, causes your heart rate and blood pressure to soar.  

To ‘help’ the cigarette smoke also gives the body a dose of Carbon Monoxide that prevents the blood from being able to carry the much needed Oxygen to the muscles and brain - really useful!

Smoking Does NOT:-

Nicotine

Nicotine is a very effective poison, an insecticide, a highly toxic substance of which 30-60mg (the size of a drop of water) will kill you! It makes the heart beat faster and raises blood pressure - therefore increases the risk of a stroke or heart attack - a catastrophic one that could kill you or destroy essential functioning centres of your brain leaving you a prisoner in your own body. It is not an addictive drug for all the reasons set out above - but you have a belief that it is. Smokers all have learned ‘The Behaviour’ as to how to smoke and over-ride the body's attempts to stop us inhaling smoke. Most smokers start in order to fit in, to be part of the crowd - to appear grown up - or because someone they rather like smokes and it will give them rapport.

It Is All In The Mind!

For the first few weeks/ months, when starting to smoke, the smoking behaviour is under the control of the Conscious Mind - it is a conscious decision to get a fag out light it and smoke. It is a conscious decision to ignore the coughing and nausea. How much willpower does that require!?!

After many repetitions the Subconscious Mind stops sending out the reminders that we shouldn't inhale cigarette smoke as we are obviously going to carry on doing it and it takes over the prompting to remind us to smoke to make it easier for us. It even pattern matches so that we want to light up in similar circumstances to when we have before - when feeling stressed, bored, having a drink, chatting someone up, partying, relaxing, watching the telly. Our brain likes to pattern match - it is just making things easier for us!

That is part of the Subconscious Mind's role - to control and remind us about all those things that we do on a regular basis. To make it easy for us - to remind us through signals if we forget to do it! To make those signals as 'loud', annoying and uncomfortable as required to remind us about our habitual smoking. A job it does rather well to say the least!

The Subconscious Mind is incredibly powerful and accounts for 88% of the Brain's activity. It rewards us and 'punishes' us too. It controls our experience of fear.

Most smokers hate their habit and what it does to them, their health and the simple financial cost. Yet if confronted about their smoking will try to produce many reasons why they smoke – including enjoyment of something that makes them unhappy...because they have always been told that they are addicted, not that it is just a highly successful compulsive habit that is under the control of their Subconscious Mind. That they can explain to their Subconscious Mind, through the medium of hypnosis, that they have changed their priorities and that smoking isn't any longer wanted or required and get rid of the habit - and regain control.

What about the Addiction part?

Nicotine is a highly addictive drug, right up there with Heroin, Crack Cocaine and Cocaine – they all have a similar effect – Right?

No - it is a poison!!

In fact if you think about it in a normal night’s sleep of 7-8 hours the level of Nicotine in your blood stream has fallen to 1/16 of what it was when we went to sleep – and you didn’t notice it at all – it didn’t disrupt your sleep. So where is the chemical addiction?  

It is the psychological/psychogenic aspects of 'withdrawal' that prevent people giving up. Many people have a learned fear of not smoking, purely because they have been conditioned that it is an 'addiction' - just think of what you are like if you can't find your 'fags', or you only have one or two left and it's late at night.

If you don't believe me about the fear aspect then think back to the Nicotine gum/patches adverts - and the fear they help instil in you - with depictions of 'Nicotine Receptors' going bonkers when starved of Nicotine!! Evolution takes a long time to occur - I wonder how these 'Nicotine receptors' (if we indigenously have them in our brains) coped before tobacco was even first brought back from the 'Americas' by Sir Francis Drake???

To understand how to beat 'Nicotine Addiction' (because that is what you have always been told the other half of smoking is!) – we have to understand one simple thing - that it is not an addiction - it is not a drug, just an insecticide.

 

93% of 'Nicotine Addicts' who find NRT is useless can't be wrong!

Just in Case You Still Think it is About Nicotine

If smoking was about 'Nicotine Addiction' why are Nicotine gum, patches, inhalers etc so unsuccessful? A cigarette contains on average 0.8mg of Nicotine - per piece of gum you start at 2+mg almost 3 times more than a single fag and a 21mg patch (over 16 hours) has more Nicotine than over 26 'SuperKing Blues'!!

Why does that (as the NRT packets say) REQUIRE WILLPOWER?

Taking the 'Addictive Drug' requires you to have the willpower NOT to have the same drug at a lower dose???

Maybe it is just me but...That's BONKERS!!!!!!!!

 For 93% NRT doesn't work at all - why?

Because it isn't 'about Nicotine', it is about habits, beliefs...and Dopamine

 

But When I Try to Stop I Get all These 'Withdrawal' Pains/Feelings/Irritability!?!

Of course you do:-

Firstly you believe that nicotine is an addictive drug and you believe that it will be hellish stopping - therefore (remember Orr's Law above?) it will be hellish - it will be difficult because your 'truth' says it will be - because you validated what was in those adverts about nicotine receptors and NRT - the Government told you you were an addict, the NHS told you, your family and friends told you - other smokers told you - it is the 'truth' in your current model of your reality. Therefore you behave as you believe a 'nicotine addict' should and you carry on smoking because you believe you need to in order to prevent yourself suffering the withdrawal you believe you would have if you stopped.

Secondly your Subconscious Mind doesn't know that you have reviewed your smoking habit and decided to stop - it is sending out those reminders to ensure you don't forget to put that fag between your lips and have a smoke. When you ignore those reminders it thinks that you haven't heard it and sends out 'LOUDER' reminders - then it starts 'SHOUTING' at you - this is what a good and successful Subconscious Mind should do - make it easy for you to keep up the habit without any need for conscious thought.

Just to make sure that it works really efficiently all your subconscious links and memories about smoking are laced/soaked with a neurotransmitter called Dopamine - which is like a high priority alert on an email - apart from the fact it has an emotional tag to it and creates a wanting feeling, a 'must have' sensation and an expectation of a wonderful reward - all the reminders to smoke are soaked with Dopamine in ever increasing amounts when you 'try to stop' - they are laced/soaked with Dopamine as part of the trap to keep you doing a compulsive behaviour that does you no good - Dopamine deceives you into expecting something wonderful from smoking - which never comes. (This is true whether it is binging on food, alcohol, gambling or tobacco) There is never a reward just Dopamine's distorted cues!

On a conscious level you have made the decision to stop smoking - your Conscious Mind only accounts for 12% of your brain - did anyone think of telling your Subconscious Mind - the other 88%?

It is the seat of your habits and beliefs - it is the part that sends out those reminders to smoke - to remind you about your repetitive and predictable habit of sticking a fag in your mouth and lighting it. If you do not inform your Subconscious Mind that you have made the decision to review your smoking habit and thus stop smoking (and give your Subconscious Mind all the reasoning behind it) it will carry on reminding you VERY LOUDLY and uncomfortably that you smoke and have missed a few ciggies! Think about it another way if you were to put willpower up against imagination, imagination will win every time. Your Subconscious Mind behaves as a smoker and has your beliefs held in it about how horrible you believe it will be to stop smoking - can you think what your imagination can do to you? It can create pain, shakes, sweating, irritability - the list is as long as your imagination can make it! - But only if we allow it to become psychological...if your Subconscious knows the new truth that makes you a non-smoker, and accepts it into your beliefs then it has nothing to play you with as you are a non-smoker.

If, in hypnosis, you inform your Subconscious Mind of your review and reasoning and then simply ask your Subconscious Mind in the light of all these reasons to just switch off the reminders that it would send out and reset itself to a non-smoking state - then it can and will.

Increasing the Fear

Apart from, what I, personally, consider, to be highly unethical advertising by NRT manufacturers and an NHS that prescribes the poison to 'get you off the poison', thus furthering a myth that smoking is all about an 'addictive drug'- 'Nicotine addiction' - and increasing the fear about stopping smoking, many of the ‘award winning’ advertising campaigns from brands such as Marlboro, Silk Cut and Benson & Hedges etc have been based on amplifying fears about stopping smoking;

Marlboro utilised vultures circling and the tag line of ‘Warning – Picnic Area’ and other adverts based around sex imagery/performance
(subliminal but there);

Silk Cut used injury, stitches (and of course, sex) – i.e. you were more likely to have accidents or self-harm without the crutch of Silk Cut.

None, however, have been as blatant as the image of a mobile above a child’s cot – over the cot is an anvil and its counterweight is a pack of King Size – the very clear message is that  – ‘if you take away the fags you will harm your child’.

That advert (which I haven't yet found on the internet) was specifically aimed at young mothers...but...here are a few of B&H's beauties...

...and yes, smoking weakens your gums and causes your teeth to fall out, it is like a mousetrap and finally, made to look as attractive as a bird in a gilded cage - still a prisoner!

The tobacco industry even used their advertising to try to scare people away from the very effective intervention of hypnosis in helping people becoming happy non-smokers, below is another example from Benson and Hedges...

Where Hypnotherapy Fits In

Hypnotherapy is the doorway to your Subconscious Mind - The seat of your habits and beliefs - The powerhouse of how you as an organism functions - If your Subconscious Mind thinks you still smoke then it will remind you to smoke - That is part of the job of a successful Subconscious Mind - To automatically remind you to do things that are habitual and predictable!

In essence smoking cigarettes is purely and simply learned behaviour under the control of your Subconscious Mind –

No smoker is 'addicted' to smoking they are ALL caught in a trap of habits, beliefs and fear. All of which can be easily reframed or removed in hypnosis. Therapeutic hypnosis can remove a life-long phobia in less than a couple of hours, can change habits and beliefs just as easily, can encourage new learning on a fundamental level and can positively use hypnotic phenomena to help you see your present and future self as a Happy Non-smoker. "What the Thinker thinks, the Prover proves" - through hypnosis the Subconscious Mind can understand that changes are being made and should now see themselves as a happy non-smoker and then start behaving as one by not smoking as there will be no inner conflict.

The moment a smoker understands that...stopping smoking is easier and fear free.

Time since stopping smoking and the beneficial health changes that take place

 

As I said right at the top of the page:

Unfortunately we have all been brought up being told that 'Nicotine is addictive,
highly addictive' and if we are told something often enough by people that we give credence to such as
 the Government, NHS, Doctors, Scientists and even The Drug Companies we tend to believe it,
we validate it and it becomes part of our 'Truth' part of our own model of reality...
...and of course the government has never lied to the British public has it...

We all have our own model of the world we live in, our own 'Truth',
our own perception of reality, our own beliefs, our own blind spots.

This course challenges those beliefs, exposes your blind spots and exposes the Truth
that will make stopping smoking easier than you could have possibly realised.
