The hardest thing you’ll ever do is ‘try’ to stop smoking?

Have you ever heard that one? I’m sure you have. 🚬

But, it’s not true. Believe me…trust in me…🐍😵‍💫

Firstly, I’ve done it for myself

after a life time’s ‘addiction’ but more importantly every day, I help people quit by using hypnotherapy to stop smoking. 🛑

There’s nothing more exciting than watching the revelation spread across a person’s face when they open their eyes….👀

and come out of their smoking trance…out of a trance into a new reality…a reality where they…you…

I become free ⛓️from that loathsome, self-sabotaging, habit.

And do you want to know what the really beautiful thing is about hypnotherapy to stop smoking is?

You know I’m going to tell you.

The beautiful thing is that it’s really easy . The whole “It’s the hardest thing you’ll ever try to do”

is a downright lie – that keeps you stuck….🕳️in that pit.

that keeps you inhaling as you suffocate yourself…😷coughing and fearing for your health as you continue…

as you continue to hand over your 💶💵💷 and control to something that’s certain to reduce the quality and length of your life.

and if you’re fast on your draw 🔫

You’ll have already processed and understood that the word ‘try’ assumes failure…

How many times have you announced or heard someone say “I’m trying to quit”?

Come on! Who are you kidding? You may think.

If you’re announcing your intention of quitting and inserting the word ‘try’ before it, your resolve is fairly lame. 🤕

Sorry, If I’m coming across as judgemental…it’s only that I recognise this quality in myself…or lack of.

“Do or Do not there is no try”

That’s what Yoda has to say on the matter

and although I don’t normally like relying on fictional sources

when it comes to writing articles and blogs about the effectiveness of hypnosis and hypnotherapy for stopping smoking or answering the frequently put question in Google: ‘Hypnotherapy stop smoking does it work?”

Yoda is bang on the money here and you can’t not love Yoda, ❤️❤️❤️

he’s beautiful and wise beyond all consciousness. Thank you George Lucas.

The thing is, when you really want to do something, you just do it.

You find a way. 🚙🚧⛔️💪

I know I do. Tell me how it’s possible that I wrote a novel, taught in secondary school and introduced a new life into the world all in the same year but somehow, never found the strength to stop smoking.

Not determined enough? Bullshit.

Don’t want to stop enough? more likely.

And if you don’t want to stop, I’m not even convinced that you’d be reading this….

too many words have passed. 📑📑

which means if you do want to stop and haven’t, it’s partly because you’ve believed the myth that stopping smoking is one of the hardest things to do.

My mum said that for years, but she did eventually stop smoking and she didn’t use hypnosis, she used will power alone…but she’s always said it was the hardest thing she’s ever done.

And if you’d witnessed some of things that went on when I was growing up, that’s no small claim. Okay, it wasn’t like fighting in the jungle, 🎋🌴🎋but there were times when it didn’t feel far off.

But she did quit smoking effectively ⛔️

and immediately once she became a Grandma and my sister (who temporarily for the love of her child became a non-smoker) and banned my mum from smoking in the house. My mum stopped and never started again. And I am thankful because she is now 82 and can still do a headstand. 🧘🧘‍♀️🧘‍♂️

The thing is when you stop smoking with hypnosis

it’s easy because you’ll be talking to the part of the mind that runs the smoking cravings and you’ll be switching the cravings off

and you’ll also be using resources within your own mind to explore and dissolve the obstacles that had previously got in your way.

And it just feels so good, so natural and you will be awoken to the better possibilities in life

and before you start typing ㊗️🈷️🈁into Google ‘Stop smoking hypnotherapy near me.’

Consider that the best thing that came out of COVID for hypnotherapists is the discovery that hypnosis works just as powerfully online

so wherever you are in the world 🌎 if you want to stop smoking with hypnosis you can do it just as, if not more effectively over Zoom.

Think about it. 🤔💭🚬🚭🔥
