Four questions that will determine your success
Are you really ready to stop smoking? Answering these questions honestly will help determine that.
1. Is it you that wants to stop smoking?
The reason I ask this is because if it's your wife, your husband, your kids, your parents, your boss, your doctor, or anyone else… that wants you to quit.. and YOU don't really want to.. then chances are you will not be successful.Hypnosis will not make you quit. It will allow you to quit. You possess the power to make many kinds of changes. Cravings and withdrawal symptoms can be reduced or even eliminated but the power of hypnosis or the hypnotist can't stop you from buying a pack and starting the process all over again. It is only your desire and the support that I give you that will allow success.
2. Is there anyone else at home that smokes?
The reason for this question is that when you become a non-smoker, you will need a refuge from cigarettes. Cigarettes will smell very bad and you will notice the stink on everything. You also had a very strong trigger to smoke when others smoke, and will need a place that you can have sanctuary from that. If you have someone at home that smokes, you can still quit if your desire is strong enough. Often you will find that others who used to smoke around you now find a place far away to be supportive. Soon your success influences them to a healthier happier smoke free life.
3. Do you think of cigarettes as your friend?
The reason for this question is because we assign all kinds of benefits to our smoking activities. The friend that calms me down, gives me something to do when I'm bored, that lets me enjoy the end of a meal, that lets me enjoy my me time, that gives me something in common with the people in the smokers break area...etc. If you still think of your smoking activity as your friend, rather than accept what the activity really is...which is breathing toxic fumes that will kill you...make you look older...turn your teeth yellow...and make everything you have stink. Then lets face it, you aren't quite ready to quit yet.
4. Are you ready to put them down for good?
This is a decision only you can make. You will know when it is your time to quit. Then, and only then, will you make the commitment, and have the level of desire, to put them down for good.
Know up front, that I will specifically look for reasons that you are NOT ready for hypnosis and our smoking cessation program. Too many people look for a magic bullet, instead of making a stand and taking responsibility. Hypnosis is not a magic bullet. It is the easiest way to become a non-smoker, but your commitment, and your investment, has to be at least as strong as mine for it to succeed.
