As a former smoker, I know how difficult quitting smoking can be. With a global pandemic and health being at the top of our minds right now, perhaps it is a good time to consider if hypnosis can help you stop smoking so that you can finally be free.
Hypnosis for Smoking - How Does it Work?
Hypnosis is defined as an altered state of awareness in which you appear to be asleep or in a trance. Even though you appear to be in a trance during hypnosis, you are not unconscious. You are still aware of your surroundings, and -- despite what many stage performers may claim during an entertaining show -- you cannot be made to do anything against your will. In fact, brain tests performed on patients during hypnotism sessions have shown a high level of neurological activity.
Clinical hypnosis may be used to treat certain physical or psychological problems. For instance, it is frequently used to help patients control pain. It is also used in a wide range of other conditions such as weight issues, speech disorders, and addiction problems. With smoking being an addiction problem, it can be effective to help you quit smoking.
What is the success rate of Hypnosis to quit smoking?
A study by the National Library of Medicine has shown that 81% quit smoking with hypnosis, and the majority of those who quit remained smoke-free a year later.
However, Hypnosis is not magic. It I simply a tool that helps in making what you’re trying to do easier. If someone doesn’t truly want to quit smoking, then no form of treatment will be effective.
