Quit Smoking In The New Year With Hypnotherapy
It is almost 2023! While we are all surprised at how quickly 2022 went by, a lot of people are excited about what the new year might hold. And of course, for many people, the new year is a time to reflect on new goals or life changes for the future.
Smoking is one of these unhealthy habits that you may want to free yourself of this upcoming year. Sadly, it is not the easiest habit to break. Quitting cold turkey when you have a nicotine dependance is challenging and can result in anguish before it gets better.
If you are serious about leaving your smoking habit behind this year and are interested in getting help, you may want to consider hypnotherapy. Let’s take a quick look at how hypnosis sessions can help you overcome your smoking addiction.
Find The Will To Quit
The first step in quitting smoking is to find the will to actually do this. It can be difficult to quit smoking when you use this habit as a perceived way to calm yourself or as a means of keeping busy. Hypnotherapy sessions can help you to recognise your triggers, affirm the health risks of smoking and support you to believe in your abilities to become
cigarette free. This is invaluable for taking that first step towards your smoke-free journey.
Ease Through Withdrawal Symptoms
When choosing to quit smoking by going cold turkey, withdrawal symptoms can start to appear a couple of hours after you smoke your last cigarette. Nicotine withdrawal may include lots of physical symptoms like nausea, headaches, abdominal pain, and aches. You may also experience psychological symptoms like sleep issues, irritability, anxiety, depression, concentration problems, and insomnia. These symptoms are usually at their peak during the first three days and gradually fade over the course of the month.
Hypnotherapy can potentially alleviate or remove those horrible symptoms, provide emotional strength even if you were to experience these symptoms, and can give you the commitment to push through it all.
Eliminate Cravings From Your Subconscious
Cravings can sometimes continue for weeks after quitting and are one of the most difficult challenges of quitting. But, with the support of hypnotherapy you will be much more resilient to any urges to smoke again. Negative thoughts can be replaced with positive expectations and motivation. The chances of rebounding are greatly reduced.
How To Use Hypnosis To Quit Smoking
Your hypnosis journey may start with an in-person or online consultation with a skilled hypnotherapist. During the session, the hypnotherapist can identify your specific challenges, tailor the session to your personal needs, and will then perform hypnotherapy. During therapy you’re likely to experience a very relaxing daydream-like state. Hypnosis sessions are often incredibly soothing and enjoyable for clients.
Sometimes a hypnosis recording will be provided for ongoing professional support. These recordings are usually about 20 minutes long and can be enjoyed in the comfort of your home at any time, especially if you ever feel any urges to smoke again.
Many smokers only need to undergo one hypnosis session or only need to listen to a recording occasionally for it to be effective. Some people, however, will need a couple of sessions before they can overcome their smoking habit.
