It can be hard to quit smoking until you gain an understanding of how the mind and body work together. The mind has 2 spheres: the conscious (logical mind) wants you to quit. Yet the subconscious (feeling body) will not let you quit. When the two minds are in conflict, the subconscious always wins. No amount of logic, reason or willpower can battle a smoking habit. The issues lie deeper. Hypnosis to quit smoking can enable you to gain this greater deeper understanding and lead you towards a unique and more successful outcome.
The critical portion of your subconscious mind holds beliefs (incorrectly) making it impossible to quit. I will quit smoking when I am ready; I am under a lot of stress; smoking helps me relax; I am much more creative when I smoke; occasional smoking won’t hurt me; i’s my only vice: it’s too hard; I do not have the willpower; I get irresistible urges to smoke; I have tried to quit smoking; All my friends in NYC smoke.

“Once my sessions were over, I realized I had a lot of clarity regarding why I picked up cigarettes, and my susceptibility to other addictions. I realized that I already have all the things I need to survive and be happy, and that smoking was merely me reaching for an anchor when I was already on dry ground. After each session, I was calmer, and felt more restored. I smoked after my first session and my next sessions were sporadic, but the impact on my quitting was profound.”
