Tension is 75% of the reason why you smoke

Before seeking therapy for help to stop smoking it is essential that you prove to yourself that you really want to stop smoking. And the way to do that is to commence a new behaviour to replace the smoking behaviour. The new behaviour is to eliminate tension from your body and mind for it is this tension that is responsible for a large percentage of your smoking behaviour.

Once you remove the tension, what is left is habit and habits are easily eliminated with hypnotherapy. Hypnosis is a great way of dealing with the habit because this habit is in the subconscious mind and can be eliminated with the use of hypnosis.

When you really want to give up

I have a suggested regime to follow that will help you to reduce the number of cigarettes you smoke in any given day.

The new regime includes practising my Relaxation Exercise at least once a day. And I offer you guidelines as to when and how many cigarettes you may smoke.  You will also receive your Stop Smoking Therapy on CD to assist you to stay on track and remain a non-smoker.

You will find that your smoking will be drastically reduced and that within a week, or two (at the most) you should be down to less than 10 cigarettes a day.  Then, when you are absolutely serious about stopping smoking contact me for a hypnotherapy appointment.  A single session is usually all that is required for you to stop smoking.  You will find that with doing the Relaxation Exercise daily you will be cutting out the tension in your body and mind, and tension is 75% of the reason why you smoke.
