As one of the leading hypnotherapists in Cardiff that can help you kick the habit for good I thought I might let you in on a few little secrets about our filthy friends and why some of you have found it so difficult to wave goodbye to them.
Over 10 million people in the UK still smoke. That sounds like a lot right, but its a lot less then 20 or so years ago. Back in the 80's 1 in 2 people smoked, now its more like 1 in 5, and 1 in 4 of us are now Ex-Smokers. Around 660 people successfully give up smoking every day....forever.
How come they stop and you can't? What's so different about them?
Take a look at those warning signs on your pack of fags. Take a good look......
Eeeewwww. That's gross.
It doesn't stop you wanting one though does it? Lets throw in a few facts about how many people die each year, its around 100,000 people that die every year from smoking-related causes.
Did that make you stop? For most people the answer in NO. Some people will react the exact opposite way when reading these facts and seeing these images, they will start to CRAVE a cigarette.
So why isn't this effective?
A) The mere mention and repetition of the words cigarette, smoking, lighting up etc., even when used in a negative way only serves to reinforce our habit, it reminds us of smoking and all its joys.
B) When we really truly look at the frightening hard facts of what the habit is actually doing to the body and mind, it becomes so large, so scary, so enormous that our minds go into a panic - and what do we do in a panic?, reach for something that will calm us down, something that give us that old reassuring relaxing feeling and for smokers guess what that is.......
You can see how the smoking habit is a vast vicious circle.
The good news is breaking this circle is actually very easy, and very quick. I can help you fundamentally change the way you view your habit and help you say a clear, concise GOODBYE to smoking FOREVER.
