Have you ever tried to give up smoking but with no success? Well if you have, don't be afraid because you are not the only one. This is why you should consider individual hypnosis.
Individual hypnosis has proven to help people suffering from various addictions and disorders. This includes social anxiety, drugs, alcohol and stress. It has also worked for those who are smokers so you don't have anything to lose by trying it out.
Before you try hypnosis, the specialist that will be helping you throughout the entire process has to know why you smoke and what triggers it. Some smoke as a way to relieve the pressure while others use it to boost their confidence. Keep in mind thought that you don't have to smoke when the pressure is building up or you want to show who you really are.
After speaking with the hypnotist who sees that this technique has a chance to help you give your addiction, the next step is to get you to relax and put you in a trance. Some people fall asleep while others claim that they are able to hear the hypnotist the entire time but the important thing is that you will be able to control your urge of lighting that next cigarette.
When you are relaxed, the power of suggestion or hypnotic suggestion is then repeated several times so you will give up that habit. If the keyword does not work, this is rephrased or reworded. This continues until the patient wakes up from the trance.
How effective it is varies because some people will see the difference in a matter of days while others will only experience it after a few weeks.
But will individual hypnosis work for everybody? Well you have to remember three important things about this technique.
First, you have to be willing or open to try hypnosis. If you are not willing to be hypnotized, nothing is going to happen. Second, if you want to try hypnosis, go to the clinic because you won't find the hypnotist out in the street and asking smokers if they want to kick the habit. Third, you shouldn't expect to give up smoking overnight. This takes time so you will have to go back for several sessions.
Giving up smoking is not easy. If you need more help than what the hypnotist can offer, you can also buy a recording and try self-hypnosis. You can but this from the record store, online or from the clinic which is available in cassette or CD format.
Will you still suffer from withdrawal symptoms after undergoing hypnosis? The answer is no and that is something thing that a lot of people want to hear because it is really hard to give up this habit if you have been doing this for years.
Individual hypnosis can help you quit smoking because your mind will have a conditioned response each time you feel like lighting a cigarette. This can be as simple as holding your fingers together for 30 seconds or more, taking a few deep breaths and even drinking a glass of water that will make that urge go away. You just have to give it a chance because you will never know until you try.
