Halt smoking

What is the Easiest Way to Quit Smoking?
Written by - Hannah Simmons
What does Matt Damon, Drew Barrymore, Ben Affleck, Charlize Theron, and Ellen DeGeneras all have in common? They quit smoking using hypnotherapy. Celebrities have discovered the effective results of hypnotherapy and have used it to conquer their own smoking habits.
Researchers at the University of Iowa combined more than 600 studies of smoking cessation programs involving 72,000 people from North America and Europe. Hypnosis was found to be over 3 times more effective than nicotine replacement therapy and 15 times more effective than quitting cold turkey.
A comparison study of smoking cessation treatments was conducted by North Shore Medical Center and Massachusetts General Hospital. 26 weeks after discharge, 50% of patients who received hypnotherapy exclusively were non-smokers compared to the 25% of patients who didn’t and only 16% of patients who used nicotine replacement therapy alone.
Types of Addiction
image-1 Smoking addiction is a combination of two types of addiction. There’s the physical addiction, then there is the mental, or psychological addiction. Although nicotine addiction is considered one of the strongest addictions, even more addictive than cocaine, the good news is that the physical side of things doesn’t last very long. In fact, some believe that you will lose the physical cravings for nicotine in as little as 3 days.
The real struggle for smokers is overcoming the mental addiction. The smoker has essentially trained their subconscious mind to make smoking an “automatic” behavior. These are the habits and rituals that a smoker has developed over the years such as smoking when they wake up, just before they go to sleep, after they eat, when they drive, when they drink coffee or alcohol, and so on.
How Hypnotherapy Helps You Quit
So what will hypnotherapy do? Rather than just treating the physical urges that are part of your smoking habit, hypnotherapy targets the subconscious drive behind the addiction, and breaks the positive associations with cigarettes that the mind has formed. This is replaced by an empowering, smoke-free perspective the hypnotist offers through verbal suggestions that deem smoking as something undesirable – or unnecessary – to do. Gradually, these suggestions take hold and diminish the smoker’s impulse to smoke. Furthermore, hypnotherapy is considered to be a far more safe and natural method to quit smoking with and is non-habit forming. This cannot be said about most of the stop smoking aids we currently have on the market.
But going to a hypnotist can be expensive. As much as $200 per one hour session, and requiring as many as 5 sessions for the entire treatment. If you’re a celebrity like the ones mentioned earlier, then this isn’t a problem. But can the average smoker afford to go to a hypnotherapist? Well, that question is left to the individual, but consider that a pack a day smoker will spend in excess of $2000 a year on cigarettes, not even including the increased cost of life and health insurance, and doesn’t include the drastic cut in your ability to earn.

Quitting smoking is SO HARD – I’ve been smoking since I was 14 years old. My wife and kids can’t stand it and my smoking gives my wife headaches. She’s pregnant right now and I’ve been trying to quit for her and the new baby coming our way. Finally tried hypnotherapy after seeing stuff about it online and doing all the other quit smoking methods and I’ve been smoke-free for a few months now. It gets easier the more I listen to the CD.

Are people really quitting smoking with hypnotherapy? Seems difficult to believe just listening to someone telling you smoking is bad for you is simply going to work.

I suffered chronic bronchitis, asthma, and other respiratory problems due to smoking for so long. I’ve tried e-cigs and patches repeatedly and they never stuck. My doc told me I was heading for lunch cancer if I wasn’t able to quit so hypnotherapy was a last resort. I didn’t believe it would work for the same reason you said, Jim. So I am amazed right now that it’s actually keeping me off the cigarettes. I’ve only been off cigs for 3 months, but the urge to smoke is definitely not as strong as it used to be.
Zadie S. Feb 13, 2014
Me too. I’ve tried patches, meds, e-cigs, and all of them were a hassle to deal with and eventually cost more than they were worth. I’m looking for a cheaper alternative that ACTUALLY works. Don’t think that is likely, but I want to check out CD. It’s free and I’m willing to have a go at it. Seems less of a hassle too.
Mae J. Feb 14, 2014
I, for one, can’t deal with patches. Maybe I’m overly sensitive, but patches constantly made me nauseated and e-cigs always tasted funny to me – and I felt like I looked silly smoking them. A friend sent me this link the other day and I just ordered my CD. Crossing my fingers.

I’ve tried hypnotherapy and it worked for me! My cravings for nicotine always won...I’m not into patches or e-cigs so going cold turkey was my go-to method. Cold turkey is BRUTAL though. Just tried hypnotherapy randomly and the biggest difference I see is that my cravings and urge to smoke a cigarette is much less than while I was a smoker. I consider that a miracle. I feel more in control.

Hypnotherapy helped with my cigarette addiction. I listen to it every night and have been slowly weaning off the habit. I used to feel like I NEEDED to smoke, but it now feels more and more like an option I can push aside. Not only that, I have saved SO MUCH money from not having to buy more cigarettes. It’s only now that I’m on my way to quit smoking that I realized how much money I drained keeping up the habit.

I’ve tried to quit smoking at least a dozen times and I’ve always relapsed. It helps with my anxiety the most. Quitting is just so hard, and honestly, I sometimes don’t even want to quit.
 
Josh M. Feb 16, 2014
I hear you. Whenever I try to quit my anxiety rages back and I gain weight. It’s like I have to choose a lesser evil –destroy my lungs or be a chubby basketcase? I’m at my wit’s end. I’m going to try hypnotherapy out even if it does sound too good to be true.
Josh M. Feb 18, 2014
My doc said lung cancer can be a very real scenario for me if I didn’t quit soon – they are in such bad shape. That scared me straight. It’s my wake up call. I always heard about lung cancer being related to smoking, but never really accepted it. Smoking just felt too good to give up. I can’t afford to think like that anymore and I feel like I need a mental/attitude change for quitting the habit to be successful. I’m hoping hypnotherapy will work.
Marla T. Feb 18, 2014
Hypnotherapy has helped be kill a habit that was about to kill me. Really. I obviously can’t speak for everyone who has tried it, but after going through surgery to remove cancerous growth in my lungs, I was willing to try anything to help me quit. I haven’t had a cigarette for a year and half and I hope hypnotherapy can keep this going.
Grace H. Feb 18, 2014
Wow, I’m sorry to hear that. If hypnotherapy is working for you thus far, keep using it. I wish you the best.
Randy F. Feb 22, 2014
My family and friends are almost all non-smokers and hanging out with them usually means them jokingly, and not-so-jokingly tell me to quit smoking ALL the time. I can tell they really dislike having to breathe any second-hand smoke (even though I try to be considerate and smoke outside whenever possible). My willpower to quit was always weak and brief, though. My wife suggested hypnotherapy because she has a friend who does that for her anxiety issues and even though I laughed at the suggestion at first, I tried it out. I’m amazed to say it does work! At least for me it does. I no longer need to smoke or feel weak-willed about it. My wife is loving it and so are the rest of my family and friends.
 
Greg P. Feb 23, 2014
That’s awesome, Randy! My wife also really hates my smoking habit and my kids like to hide my cigarette packs when I come home from work. I keep promising to quit, but never successfully have been able to do it. Makes me feel really guilty. I’m skeptical about hypnotherapy, but seeing how there seems to be a few people that had success with it, I’m willing to give it a try.
Randy F. Feb 23, 2014
You should, Greg. I don’t know if it differs from person to person, but it really made a difference to how much control I feel now over choosing not to smoke. I hope you get the same success as I did!
Cynthia R. Feb 25, 2014
Hypnotherapy is the one-stop quit smoking therapy you will ever need. It works. Period. I wish I knew about this before I went through all the other quit smoking junk that’s on the market. Would have saved me a whole lot of time, money, and side effects. I can’t recommend it enough.
 
Amy C. Feb 26, 2014
Hmm...really? I’m really sick and tired of other stop smoking aids too. I’m pretty convinced there isn’t anything out there that can really make you quit smoking...at least for me. Maybe I’ll try this. At least it’s free.
Cynthia R. Feb 26, 2014
Amy, seriously, just try it. Wouldn’t hurt to try. Your health, wallet, clothes, and house might thank you for it. Mine did. Being free from nicotine dependency is something I wouldn’t trade for anything else in this world...well, most things
