Self hypnosis for stopping smoking

Quit cigarette smoking with hypnosis

You are twice as likely to quit cigarettes by hypnosis than you are to stop smoking with any nicotine product such as patches and gum.

Hypnosis is a trance-like state that resembles sleep. This can be brought about by many means. People can be in a trance-like state while watching TV, dancing, walking, even driving. It is a state were the subconscious mind takes over from the conscious mind.

The subconscious part of the brain is also referred to as the Ed, the primal area. When in the hypnotised state, all distractions are blocked out and only the specific suggestions are taken in. But because these suggestions are taken in to such a deep, primal area of the brain, they really take root.

So, the question is how do you get into this trance like state so that you can feed suggestions to yourself in order to stop smoking? Do you want the hassle of finding a certified hypnotherapist in your area? Not to mention the expense? You’ve spent enough on cigarettes already!

The answer is that you can do it yourself. You can repeat these suggestions to yourself at times when you are most receptive and most relaxed – just before you fall asleep, for example.

One famous proponent and writer of hypnotherapy was Milton Erickson. He was so severely paralysed with polio that, one night aged 17, he heard doctors telling his mother that he wouldn’t make it through the night, “autohypnotic experience”.

“I was damned if I would die without seeing one more sunset. I saw that vast sunset covering the whole sky. But I know there was also a tree there outside the window, but I blocked it out. I did not do it consciously. I saw all the sunset, but I didn’t see the fence and large boulder that were there. I blocked out everything except the sunset. After I saw the sunset, I lost consciousness for three days. When I finally awakened, I asked my father why they had taken out that fence, tree, and boulder. I did not realize I had blotted them out when I fixed my attention so intensely on the sunset.”

Here we see that intense concentration caused Erickson to see something that wasn’t there. He had moved “out of himself”. Erickson saw that this shift in consciousness could be used successfully in therapy.

Your conscious mind says to you, “oh, I must do the washing up now” so you do the washing up. The subconscious mind makes sure you don’t forget to breathe while you do it.

So this oldest, basest, primal part of the brain is the part you want to talk to in order to give up smoking. So make the suggestions to your subconscious self.

The Easy Way to Give Up Smoking

Stop cigarette smoking with hypnosis

So you want to quit cigarettes? Some people who want to stop smoking will rush down the drug store to buy patches and gum that the major pharmaceutical companies have spent billions of dollars marketing. Well, wait! What if they don’t work? Are the people at your local drug store going to refund the money? No.

Companies like Pfizer didn’t spend all that money so you could try their product once and then stop. They’re not going to invest large amounts of money in a miracle cure. That would mean everyone in the world who wanted to give up cigarettes suddenly stopped smoking. And then who would buy their products? Exactly…

So, don’t buy anything! Put that money back in your pocket where it belongs – believe me, you’ve spent enough on cigarettes already!

How to stop smoking easily

So is there an easy way to quit cigarettes? Yes. Forget about the patches, the gum and all the products. This is about you. It’s not external. You need to strip everything back and think about yourself.

Go into a darkened room when you’re not stressed, don’t have anything else to do and won’t be disturbed for 10-15 minutes.

Sit down in this room, close you eyes and feel the relaxation increase in your body. This is the easy way to stop smoking.

Concentrate on now. Not of the past mistakes, past experiences and memories. Not on the future, what you’ve got to do and your dreams and aspirations. Forget all that and experience the feelings you have in your body at the present moment.

The universe is constantly changing and forever in a state of flux. There is and never will be one moment when everything does not change. And for this reason there is always something to experience while you have your eyes closed on your own in the darkened room.

Experience the feeling of your bottom against the seat of the chair, your feet on the floor, the air in your lungs being drawn in and out. This is what you should concentrate on and be mindful of other thoughts about the past or the future entering your mind. When they do, notice that they are there and continue to concentrate on your present experiences.

Once you start to do this you will notice that you are becoming more relaxed.

If this is the case then, congratulations! You are starting to control your mind. It’s your mind after all! This is how you begin to hypnotise yourself into living a happier smoke-free life!

What they don’t want you to know

How is this possible? How is one of the most difficult things in the world (stopping smoking) easy? It may be difficult to stop smoking but you (the power of your mind) is capable of great things. We all are. The trick is to harness that greatness. And the way to do that is not by trying. The way to harness the greatness of your subconscious mind is to stop thinking and let it work itself. It just needs a push in the right direction.

Hypnotherapy and the Unconscious

Hypnosis to help quit smoking

Hypnotherapy has effectively been used in various forms for hundreds of years. Its concept is simple – the unconscious controls your habits, hang-ups, fears, phobias and self confidence therefore it makes perfect sense to deal direct with the part of you that can change general health for the better.

eye
A hypnotherapist can try to implant suggestions into your unconscious

When dealing with hypnosis the key is all about relaxation and distraction. You relax the body and distract the mind, inserting key suggestions into the unconscious that changes the way you behave.

When someone is experiencing anxiety or stress, it is not uncommon for the unconscious to go into overdrive causing panic attacks, heart palpitations, insomnia and extreme tiredness. This is your body’s way of communicating that you have a problem and it wants you to address it as soon as possible. After all experiencing these sorts of side effects are extremely unpleasant and difficult to live with.

Not everyone experiences such intense symptoms. Many have varying degrees of anxiety and stress. Symptoms can show themselves in many other forms such as unexplained weeping, rage, suppressed anger, obsessive worry, stomach pains, IBS, hair loss and most commonly a feeling of helplessness.

Anxiety and stress can also cause addictive habits such as smoking and alcoholism.

As not everyone is suitable or comfortable taking drugs to combat these symptoms, hypnotherapy gives an easy and healthy option that can also have other beneficial attributes.

Hypnosis relaxes and reduces tension throughout the body and mind, thus reducing the outward symptoms of anxiety and stress. More importantly the inner turmoil that is the root cause of these behaviours are tackled and negative thought processes are changed for more healthier alternatives.

What happens in a Hypnotherapy session?

This can depend on the therapist or the method you choose to tackle this challenging problem with. Generally you will experience deep relaxation and peace, accompanied by increased self worth and confidence.

The available implementation methods for this therapy are varied. Such as personal one to one and group sessions. Skype therapy for conditions such as acrophobia and severe anxiety. As well as serving those who find a therapist but are unable to travel to the destination due to time restrictions.

Multimedia options are increasingly popular such as CDs, MP3 recordings, DVD’s and smart phone apps. Many internet companies are offering free downloads just for joining their mailing list. Other options are free Self Hypnosis eBooks, and Amazon have a huge array to help any condition.

Like in every alternative therapy market, it is essential to find the right delivery method for you.

Therefore take the opportunity to find a therapist who makes you feel comfortable and at ease. Who asks about you (not just what they can do for you) as well as being registered with a competent society such as the BSCH.

Alternatively a lesser known option would be to search auction sites and second hand stalls, communicating with the seller to get feedback of how their anxiety was helped by using their hypnotherapy tool. You may be surprised at how many people will have been helped and are passing products on to help others.

One of the many questions asked of any therapist is: How long will it take to rid me of my problem?

Unsurprisingly, there is no easy answer here. Hypnosis is a matter of willingness to really be helped and cooperation with the therapist. It is widely claimed that all hypnosis is self hypnosis. Meaning that without a two way partnership between the therapist and the client, the therapy will never set deep enough. It is imperative therefore that all diligence is taken to find as stated before a suitable therapist or professional multimedia tool.

So to summarise

  • Make a decision that today is the day to claim your life back.
  • Explore the options and tools that are available to you such as therapist, multimedia, books, and auctions.
  • Choose one that suits your commitment and need.
  • Commit to the treatment, be patient and positive.
  • And above all look forward to the new found freedom that hypnotherapy will bring you.

How To Quit Smoking Cigarettes

How To Quit Smoking Cigarettes

Smoking is a habit that permeates every aspect of life; from nights out to breaks at work, it is easy to become reliant on cigarettes as a crutch. Now you want to break that habit and improve your health and wellbeing but it seems like a mountain to climb. With both the physiological and psychological addiction to tackle it may even seem insurmountable, it isn’t and with some simple techniques you can quit smoking today.

quit-smoking-natural
Natural methods are best when quitting smoking

The first step, as with any addiction, is to plan how you will quit. Choose a day to quit whether that be today, tomorrow or next week and stick to it! Try making a wall chart or calendar to map your progress. It is very encouraging to tick off smoke free dates such as a day, a week, a month and eventually a year. Choose some of the below techniques that you feel are right for you and above all else, have faith in yourself to stick to quitting.

Create A Mantra

A great way to encourage yourself to quit smoking is to create a personal mantra or phrase that will remind you why you’re quitting. For example, ‘Each clear breath renews my health’, would remind you of the health benefits of quitting. This mantra will also be very useful in combination with other techniques you can utilise.

Meditation

Most smokers will tell themselves cigarettes help stress but this is actually a myth, the feeling of relief is only a physiological response to a nicotine craving. There are far better ways to reduce stress. Meditation is a great way to relax and can be fitted into any routine. To get started simply sit and focus on your breathing, try to clear your mind and focus on the sensation of breath going in and out. Once your body relaxes, you can focus on your personal mantra. In this state of relaxation, getting in contact with your subconscious will be easier and you will finish meditation feeling cleansed and pure and definitely not wanting a cigarette! There is a great deal of more detailed advice about meditation available online.

Hypnosis and Self Hypnosis

With hypnosis, one can convince the mind to not smoke again. You can get in contact with clinics that provide hypnosis sessions from professionals who will help you to quit smoking cigarettes, but there are also ways you can utilise self hypnosis. Self hypnosis takes time and effort, it’s something you will have to do every day. Start by repeating your mantra at every opportunity, when cleaning the house for example. This will begin to implant the idea of quitting in your subconscious. Utilise meditation and once you are completely focused, communicate with your subconscious. This will be difficult at first but over time, the idea to quit will flower in your mind and your desire to smoke will evaporate. Again, there is a wealth of knowledge about hypnosis available online, so research and find the technique right for you.

These are just some of the techniques you can use to quit smoking cigarettes but remember, most of all trust in your own will power. If you are struggling, find a likeminded friend to talk to, or better yet to quit with. A partner in quitting can be just what you need to really motivate each other.

Hypnotize Yourself to Quit Smoking

Quit smoking with hypnosis

If you are looking on the internet for advice on quitting smoking you have my sympathy. You will run into a plethora of sites run by internet sharks and self-appointed smoking experts. Overall you will conclude two things: the first, it’s going to be difficult to quit smoking; the second, there are a lot of products to buy. I’m here to tell you two things: one, it’s not difficult to quit smoking; two, it won’t cost you anything. And the way to do this is: to hypnotize yourself to quit smoking.

self-hypnosis
You can hypnotize yourself to not feel the withdrawal symptoms so acutely when quitting smoking

In the Self-Help classic, Think and Grow Rich!, Napoleon Hill says that we all have the power to influence our subconscious minds and through this gain the cooperation of Infinite Intelligence.

In fact, all hypnosis is self-hypnosis. The skilled hypnotist merely directs the subject to auto-suggest.

Napoleon Hill also likens the subconscious mind to a fertile garden that will be overgrown with weeds as long as the gardener (that’s us) does not take care of what is planted.

You have complete control over what is planted in your subconscious mind, including the addiction to cigarettes, the only problem is that very few of us actually exercise the control over our subconscious minds.

So, how do you hypnotize yourself to stop smoking cigarettes

There are a number of ways. It’s not something that can be done hurriedly when you have a few moments to spare. It’s something you need to devote a certain amounts of time to everyday!

You can say things to yourself while you’re walking or doing a day-to-day task that doesn’t take up much brain power. For example, try saying to yourself “day by day, in every way, I’m getting better and better”.

This is a good start but you may not be actually making suggestions to your subconscious by doing this as you’re mind will be full of conscious thoughts. Your subconscious does take a bit of effort to get in touch with.

You can also actually communicate your desires to yourself out loud. Obviously you will have to find a quiet time to yourself to do this – I’m not advocated talking to yourself out loud while you’re out and about!

Try to clear your mind and affirm to yourself something you deeply desire: “I will stay smoke free”. “I will breathe in only fresh pure air into my lungs.” Or something like that.

But the best way to hypnotize yourself is to spend 10 to 15 minutes concentrating on your breathing. It may help to concentrate specifically on the sensation of the air going in and out of your nose as you breathe. Imagine the oxygen coming into your body giving life to your being, replenishing and satisfying you with every breath.

Once you have achieved a state of complete relaxation where your mind is 100% concentrating of the breath in the present moment and nothing else, then you can start to auto-suggest. Affirm to yourself (not out loud) your deep desires at this moment and you are communicating with your subconscious directly!

This is very powerful. Be careful what you wish for. Be very specific.

Conclusion

Quitting smoking using your conscious mind alone will be a long, constant struggle. The power of your subconscious mind – with hypnosis – will relieve this struggle and make it much easier, along with the other tips on this blog and in my e-book, to successfully become a non-smoker.

Quit Smoking Using Meditation and Self-hypnosis

Quit Smoking Using Meditation and Self-hypnosis

The use of meditation and self-hypnosis in quitting addictive habits such as smoking is sadly underplayed in today’s cynical and hard-nosed society. At the most basic level it is simply affirmation of your desire to quit and all the excellent reasons that you should, lending strength and determination to what we know will be a trying and difficult time.

cigarette

Many people include meditation and self-hypnosis (as well as regular hypnosis) in that group of incredible practises used by a semi-hysterical, airy-fairy section of the population; not something for sensible people with careers and responsibilities. This is unfortunate as the medical profession is gradually coming to appreciate just how little is known and understood about the workings of the brain and how it can influence the workings of the body. Scientists are now aware that the principle of mind over matter can have a quantifiable effect on disease and recovery, something ‘old wives’ have been aware of for decades!

What meditation and self-hypnosis does

In the case of an addiction, such as with nicotine, the brain is the affected body part and it is possible to loosen the grip of the substance with meditation or self-hypnosis. Within 10 seconds of lighting a cigarette the nicotine has reached the bloodstream and quickly finds the brain. The way nicotine works in the brain is by affecting the ‘reward’ centre, the place that makes us feel pleasure, releasing extra dopamine, a neurotransmitter that helps us to feel well-being and satisfaction. The pleasant feeling does not last very long, so it becomes ‘necessary’ to repeat the act of lighting up over and over throughout the day.

When one meditates one stops thinking and concentrates on feeling. Therefore one is only aware of the very basest and oldest part of the mind – similar to the subconscious. This is the best part of the mind to communicate with when you want to stop bad habits.

The thought of giving up smoking can create feelings akin to panic even in people who are determined to give up the habit and this is also where self-hypnosis and meditation can come in so very useful in allowing the smoker to see through the confusion and stress of withdrawal to a time when cigarettes no longer exert such great control over them. It is easy for someone who has never smoked to say ‘Just give up; it’s expensive and bad for you and you will be happier and healthier without cigarettes in your life’, because they have little or no understanding of just how tightly the habit can hold a person.

meditation

Many a smoker has worked themselves to the point where they agree, yes, it is a disgusting habit and causing smelly breath and browning teeth; yes, it is ruinously expensive, to the point that nearly all spare income is funnelled into the habit; and yes, they want to quit because they are a better person, they do not want to rely on a noxious weed any longer: only to crumble into self-loathing and doubt because they can not get through the week, day or even the next hour without a long satisfying drag on a cigarette at regular intervals…

How to do it

Incorporating meditation or self-hypnosis into a stop-smoking programme can be invaluably helpful and it can be easily and simply achieved. Some people need to have finished their last pack of cigarettes while others, once they reach the pre-specified time, are happy to bin the cigarettes they have left, still others prefer to keep that last pack or last cigarette as a souvenir. If you already meditate on a regular basis, you can begin to include an affirmation about not needing to smoke; about being strong enough to break the hold the habit has on you and about being a worthwhile person who deserves to be free of nicotine.

If you have never meditated before it will take some time to learn how. Once you have mastered the basics and have trained your mind to accept the fact that smoking will cease on such-and-such a day you will find it very much easier to let go of the habit and you will be able to break the binds of nicotine with relative ease. Good luck!

Meditation, Self-Hypnosis and Reality

Stop smoking with meditation

Many people often ask me what has meditation and self-hypnosis got to do with quitting smoking.

The answer is not a lot. Meditation, however, enables you to see life more clearly. It cuts back the filters, preconceptions and prejudices through which we view life and allows us to see things more clearly and make better decisions.

Ever since your very early years, you have been experiencing the world whilst your thoughts have been buzzing and whirring away in the background, clouding your consciousness. Meditation quietens them down.

Language, religion and reality

Between 20,000 and 50,000 years ago human beings in Africa invented a basic language which was a catalyst for human civilisation. During this time there were changes in human behavior including the creation of cave art and sophisticated hunting tools.

Language benefited humans by aiding communication and abstract thinking. However, words superimposed categories and value judgments upon a world that had been whole and perfect.

Just as they divided up the world and recognised the difference between “lions” and “tigers” they also contrived the difference between “good” and “bad”.

“There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.” – from Hamlet, William Shakespeare; Act II, scene ii

And not only was there are difference between “good” and “bad” but a difference between “you” and “me”.

It is interesting that also at this point, humans started practicing religion. The etymology of the word religion is also interesting, from the latin re-ligare (re: “again”; ligare: “bind, connect”) – to connect again back to something which we’d lost?

All the major religions of the world teach that a bad action against someone else is, in fact, a bad action against yourself:

“Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” – Christianity
“What is hurtful to yourself do not to your fellow man.” – Judaism
“Do unto all men as you would they should unto you.” – Islam
“Hurt not others with that which pains yourself.” – Buddhism

Thus emphasising the oneness of the universe. The idea is if you hurt someone else (even whilst apparently benefiting yourself) you are hurting the universe and therefore hurting yourself.

Returning to the source

zen garden

The practice of meditation allows you to experience the world without the confusion of vocabulary. As you concentrate on your breathing and nothing else you begin to appreciate the perfect calmness there is when you are conscious of the present moment and nothing else.

And after regularly practicing meditation you will begin to experience this calmness in the rest of your life which has untold mental and physical benefits.

Self-hypnosis

If you do have a smoking habit – or in fact any other behaviour or habit you want to get rid of – you should start self-hypnosis in exactly the same way as you should start meditation. Sit down and try to concentrate on your breathing.

Although, the purpose of meditation is to try to concentrate on feeling the breaths go in and out and nothing else, with self-hypnosis it is to use self-suggestion at the moment when the concentration is at its most intense and at the point when the relaxation is most pure.

Self Hypnosis to Stop Smoking

Stop smoking with hypnosis

There is no right or wrong way to do self hypnosis to stop smoking. However, it works. I know because I did it.

self-hypnosis

Smoking, as you are no doubt aware, is a terrible habit and addiction and the reason it seems so hard to break is that it is lodged deep in the subconscious mind.

The conscious mind is the part of you that thinks you should get a new job, wonders if you’ll catch the train or enjoys a good TV show. Your unconscious mind, however, is concerned with things that you don’t necessarily think about, like breathing, using muscles in your legs to walk or feels fear in certain situations.

The subconscious part of your mind is the older, more primordial part – concerned with the basics of survival and living that beings on this planet have relied on for millennia. Pretty important stuff. Unfortunately, this is the part that is telling you to keep smoking.

Hypnosis works by suggesting to your subconscious self that you don’t need cigarettes. Rather than pay someone to hypnotize you it’s much better to learn how to do it yourself – this way you can tell your subconscious mind to do anything at all!

How to hypnotize yourself to stop smoking

First of all you need to prepare yourself and your environment. You need a quiet place and time where distractions are at a minimum.

Make sure you are feeling as relaxed as possible.

Place a chair with a back but without arms in the middle of a room with no electric lights on and no sunlight streaming through the windows. Make sure you turn off any electrical appliances that may be making a noise or disturbing you.

Now sit down on the chair, close your eyes, cup your hands together on your lap, relax and be aware of the sensations in your body.

Feel the weight of your body against the chair. Notice the sensations on the soles of your feet where they are touching the floor.

Try to clear your mind. We spend all our time worrying about the state of our bodies but incredibly little time working on our mind and yet it has to be one of the most important organs!

You will find that these moments of silence, far from being boring, are actually very relaxing and enjoyable.

Now, turn your attention to your breathing. Breathing is constant and concentrating on it is the best way to empty your mind and only be aware of the present moment and nothing else.

So, feel the sensation of the air going in and out of your nostrils and count the breaths from one to ten and then back again to one.

At first you won’t be able to concentrate on the breaths for more than a few seconds other thoughts will flit into your mind. But, with practice your mind will calm down.

There is much more to write on this subject and if you sign up for email updates here you will receive an e-book on how to stop smoking cigarettes that will explain this in greater detail.

Once you reach a very relaxed state where you mind is completely concentrated on your breathing you should start the auto-suggestion. This is planting thought into your mind, just by thinking while you are in this super-relaxed state.

This process is particularly good for giving up smoking as you are concentrating on breathing. So, deliberately think of the clean, perfect air going into your body, replenishing it and giving oxygen in order for you to function. And, then exhaling so as to get rid of the waste products, the carbon dioxide, away from you.

This appreciation of clean air may be enough to make you want to continue your life without smoking another cigarette.

Quit Smoking With Auto-Hypnosis

Hypnosis for quitting cigarettes

The most natural way to quit smoking is to use the power of one’s own mind. In doing so, there are many strategies that can be employed, and one of the most effective is known as auto-hypnosis, or self-hypnosis. Auto-hypnosis is a methodology in which a person uses suggestion to change the pattern of thinking within the subconscious – which is responsible for the craving – in order to alter their behavior.

auto-hypnosis-and-suggestion
Suggestion is more powerful when a person is in a relaxed state of hypnosis

What are hypnosis and suggestion, and how do they relate to each other?

Hypnosis works by creating a state of focused awareness. This could, for example, be on a candle, a shiny watch or the voice of the hypnotist. Suggestion is when a person directs a person’s cognition by using words. This can be themselves, as is the case with this method. Suggestion is far more powerful when performed on a person who is in a state of hypnosis. This is because elements of the subconscious mind screen incoming sensory impressions and stop unwanted ones from arising into conscious awareness. Performing this task is essential to prevent a person from being overwhelmed by sensory input, so it’s generally a good thing, but it does make it more difficult to change established behavioral patterns.

How to make yourself suggestible

The most important thing is to put yourself in a state of relaxation. The easiest way to do this is to find a large, soft chair or to simply lie down in bed. Make yourself consciously aware of your lower legs and feet, and tense and relax them several times. Do this until you feel them becoming loose, and then move on to the upper legs. Repeat the process for the hands and lower arms, then the stomach, then the upper arms and shoulders, and finally the neck and head. Keep doing this for ten minutes.

The second step is to bring in the state of hypnotic induction, or hyperfocus. It helps if you have a lit candle nearby (although obviously you don’t want to worry yourself about burning your house down). If you have a laptop with an interesting, rapidly-changing screensaver you can focus on the colors and patterns of that. Do this until you get a sense that ordinary reality is fading away.

How to use suggestion to kick the habit

Once you feel that your sense of ordinary reality is no longer as powerful as it usually is, you are ready to start making suggestions. Tell yourself, in a firm but non-aggressive voice, that you are a non-smoker. Tell yourself that your previous habits of smoking were an aberration from the path of your normal life, that you started smoking by accident, that it wasn’t really you who smoked. Tell yourself that you have the strength and will to refuse the cravings and temptations, and that when they do arise you will not give in but will see them as a minor irritation that will soon pass.

The next step is to imagine some situations in which you act like a non-smoker. Imagine yourself going to a party and being offered a cigarette, and, without a second thought, you refuse with the words “Sorry, I don’t smoke.” Imagine getting bad news from a telephone call, and after you hang up you sit down and reflect rather than having a cigarette. Imagine waking up in the morning and eating a fruit salad for breakfast instead of reaching for a smoke first thing. Try to cover all the situations in which you are most likely to give in.

For some people, this method will work straight away. For those more resistant to hypnosis it could take longer. You can use it as many times as you need to until your subconscious starts altering your behavior, and then the most important thing is to never look back.

Vince McLeod is a psychologist who believes that understanding the psychology of smoking is the best way to stop smoking cigarettes.
