According to the CDC, smoking is the leading preventable cause of death in the US—about 1 in 4 Americans smoke. We all know the compelling reasons to quit: smoking causes heart disease, stroke, multiple cancers, respiratory diseases, and other costly illnesses. And secondhand smoke causes lung disease and lung cancer.
We also know that quitting smoking greatly reduces the risk of disease and premature death:
- Lowers the risk for lung cancer and other types of cancer.
- Reduces the risk for coronary heart disease, stroke, and peripheral vascular disease.
- Reduces respiratory symptoms such as coughing, wheezing, and shortness of breath.
And among women, quitting smoking reduces the risk of infertility.
If you’ve envisioned what you could do with the money you’ll save, or the years you’ll add to your lifespan, or the energy and good health you’ll enjoy after quitting snoking—if you, like most smokers, truly want to quit—hypnosis can help.
Hypnosis works by quieting our dominant left brain, allowing us to access the part of our brain that governs automatic functions–like habits! In this session, we will use hypnosis to develop alternative responses to the triggers that drive the smoking habit. And we’ll use hypnosis to reinforce the benefits of quitting, and the new awareness of ourselves as non-smokers.
In this 2-hour session, you’ll learn to use your own power and inner strength to reprogram your mind and body. You’ll harness your mind’s own healing ability to leave cigarettes behind for good, and move on to the next phase of your life, as a non-smoker. Think about the powerful sense of accomplishment you’ll feel as you achieve a life-changing goal, and become the person you want to be.
