You can also use hypnosis together with other stop smoking programs like the patch to achieve even better results.
There are a couple of ways that you can use hypnosis to stop smoking:
2. Hypnotherapy by a certified hypnotherapist
Self-hypnosis involves using techniques to relax yourself, and guide yourself through the images that can make quitting smoking work. This technique can take practice and time to master.
A hypnotherapist is typically certified (or should be) and has specific training and expertise to help you relax and guide you using specific images and words that work to help a person quit smoking. Some hypnotherapists will offer a one-session program, while some may suggest multiple sessions to make sure you succeed.
A third alternative is really a combination of these first two methods: a Hypnotherapy session followed by a recorded program.
Bottom Line: Can Hypnosis Help Me Quit Smoking?
Multiple studies have shown that using hypnosis to quit smoking works in a high percentage of cases-as high as 66%. While hypnosis may not be for everybody, it can aid in reducing stress, which is one of the reasons many smokers report that they smoke in the first place.
Hypnosis for smoking provides two main benefits:
- Reduced stress and/or learning techniques for controlling stress
- Effecting change in attitudes, beliefs and associations towards smoking, thus enabling elimination of the smoking habit.
