Stop Smoking Hypnosis
Answer the following questions if you are smoker:
- Have you tried quitting and failed with nicotine replacement strategies such as nicotine gum or patches?
- When going cold turkey, are the cravings hard to manage?
- Have you managed to quit for a while but ended up smoking again?
- Do you feel like you will never have enough “willpower” to quit?
Just because you may have answered yes to any, or all, of these questions, doesn’t mean it’s your fault that you haven’t been able to quit the cigarettes for good. You are completely normal!
The reason you haven’t been able to quit is because you haven’t yet learned to address the underlying issues behind your addiction.
Is Nicotine the Real Problem?
Most smokers will attribute their unsuccessful attempts to quit solely on the nicotine addiction, but is physical addiction to a substance all there is to it?
Let’s explore the issue in a little more depth by answering a few more questions:
- Can you sleep through most nights without having to get up for a smoke?
- Are you able to sit through a meal at a restaurant without having to go out for a cigarette?
- Are you able to go on long flights without smoking?
If you can answer “yes” to any of these questions, then nicotine is not the biggest roadblock preventing you from quitting.
Nicotine addiction is different from other addictions, such as those caused by alcohol abuse and heroin. A person addicted to either of those substances will endure through horrible withdrawal symptoms, which often require hospitalization and sometimes cause death.
Nicotine withdrawal is quite mild by comparison, even though it may not feel like it at the time. Most people quitting smoking report feeling irritable and stressed, which is a long way from being physically ill.
The Real Problem
The lack of severe withdrawal symptoms suggests that the real problem isn’t the nicotine addiction but is more to do with the habit. Let’s say you are a 20 a day smoker, and on average, each cigarette averages 10 drags. When you do the math, that’s up to 200 drags on a cigarette a day, which equates to a firmly embedded habit in your brain that will prove challenging to change.
A habit that has such a firm grip on your brain isn’t going to be easy to beat and is going to create some stress and irritability when you try. It’s plain to see that your withdrawal symptoms may be more to do with your habit rather than the nicotine.
If you have tried the nicotine replacement therapies, then you probably already have a firm grasp on how strong your smoking habit is. The patch may ease some of the physical cravings, but it does next to nothing for the mental triggers that cause you to whip out the pack and light up.
You immediately start thinking of cigarettes when you hit the breakroom for a coffee, finish a meal at a restaurant, start your walk to the bus stop, or have a stressful moment at work – even though you’re wearing a patch.
The Easier Way to Quit Smoking
By now, you may be thinking that if patches or gum doesn’t work, you have no hope of giving up, but there is some good news. You can retrain your brain, so it doesn’t struggle with thoughts of smoking that lead to cravings.
