    Does Hypnosis to Quit Smoking work?

    Can Hypnotherapy help you to Stop Smoking for good this Stoptober ?

    Last year Stoptober passed quite a few people by as we headed into another Covid wave and people had other things on their mind.

    This year as we head into a flu season with Coronavirus still around, there is no better time to look at giving up smoking for good. Studies have shown that being a smoker can make your reaction to both Covid and flu worse. Because we now know that Covid cases can cause even worse problems in the lungs of smokers, you may also wonder if Hypnotherapy could be the answer you are looking for, if you find it hard to quit smoking alone.

    What is Stoptober?

    It has now been going for a good few years. The idea of a month to help raise awareness of giving up cigarettes for good to help you and also of course the strain on the NHS in having to deal with more patients at a time when things are already very busy.

    It is a government backed scheme designed to help people who really want to give up smoking. The thinking of a month long campaign is that if you can give up for 28 days then you are much more likely to remain a non smoker.

    It takes about that long to break a habit so with a little support you can get to November and not need another cigarette again.

    The difference with Hypnotherapy to stop smoking... The biggest difference is that we really want you to leave after seeing me with the habit already in check. Rather than a struggle with willpower for a month, my aim is that you simply stop and don’t find any cravings or need to smoke any longer.

    How do I know Hypnosis works to quit smoking?

    Well...I used Hypnosis to Stop Smoking myself

    For myself, I gave up smoking myself with hypnotherapy well over twenty years ago and now I help others to quit smoking with hypnosis in just one session! We have a session which lasts about an hour and a half and after we talk things through and I introduce you to how hypnosis works then you go away already a non smoker.

    I even make you a recording of the hypnosis that we do to help everything sink in and also act as a great way to switch off and relax at home.

    Many of the things that I help people with can take a few sessions, but quitting smoking with hypnosis is completed in one session for you. Don’t forget, I even make you a recording that you can listen to at home to really help you stay a non smoker.

    There are many different ways that you can get help and as a Clinical Hypnotherapist I know how successful hypnotherapy can be.

    The most important thing is that just starting to think about it and talk about it can lead you to really make the change.

    Having read this page on my website is a great start. You can either contact me now, or just let yourself have a few days to think about when you are ready to let go of the cigarettes and take back control from them.

    When Covid hit the world many people turned to working online. However, I have been working with people online to help them with Skype Hypnotherapy for about ten years so I already had lots of experience. If you are near to me in Redditch in the UK then you can come and see me in person. If you are further afield then you can still work with me online on Skype in the comfort of your own home.

    In 2021 the Covid crisis has made Stoptober even more important. If you catch Coronavirus as a smoker then the effects could be much worse for you as it affects your lungs. This year the UK Government will be making even more noise about the benefits of stopping smoking.

  2. Should I stop smoking to help against Coronavirus and will hypnosis help?

    Can Smoking lead to Coronavirus?

    Smoking itself is of course never good for us, but news coming out now shows that in cases of coronavirus smokers seem to have been affected more than non smokers. Of course it doesn’t follow that smoking in itself is the problem. The biggest problem is that smoking weakens your immune system.

    Public health officials now recommend several ways for people to improve their immune system and protect themselves against the virus.

    Coming up very highly in the list of things that could help you is to quit smoking.

    If the idea of being a non smoker has been on your mind for a while then perhaps now is the time to make it actually happen.

    A recent study of more than 44,000 confirmed coronavirus cases in China showed that men (2.8 per cent) are more likely than women (1.7 per cent) to die of the virus. Men represented 51 per cent of confirmed cases. Some researchers believe smoking could be the reason for the disparity.

    Chinese men smoke more than Chinese women — In China men smoker more than women and it has been shown that cigarette smoke weakens the defensive function of the immune system.

    Even social or occasional smoking can cause damage to a your lungs and body, leading to problems like high blood pressure, high cholesterol and hypertension.

    It may even be possible that smoking makes a person more susceptible to catching viruses like COVID-19. There is “conclusive evidence that smoking is associated with an increased risk of respiratory viral infection,” per the results of a 2014 report.

     

    There’s currently little data to prove that smoking is a risk factor for COVID-19 specifically, but the World Health Organization (WHO) says it’s a possibility.

    “There is a marked difference between males and females in this outbreak in terms of severity, and there’s certainly a marked difference in [smoking] habits in China,” Michael Ryan, executive director of WHO’s Health Emergencies Programme, said in a news conference on Feb. 14.

    “It goes without saying that smoking is a risk factor for severity of any lower respiratory tract infection, and we would expect it to.”

    The good news is that quitting smoking can have almost immediate positive effects on a person’s body, generally to do with heart health; our bodies have a great ability to heal themselves and almost as soon as you stop smoking things can start to improve for you.

    What happens when you stop smoking cigarettes?

    Within just 20 minutes, your blood pressure drops to a level similar to what it was before your last cigarette.

    Just eight hours later, the level of toxic carbon monoxide in your blood drops to normal, and within 24 hours, your risk of heart attack begins to drop. After 10 years of not smoking, your chance of dying from lung cancer dramatically decreases.

    Can I use Hypnosis to help me quit smoking and help guard against Coronavirus?

    Quitting smoking with hypnotherapy has been shown in studies to be one of the most effective ways to give up cigarettes. It’s also must better than switching to vaping, you don’t need to inhale anything and you are not still paying out lots of money all the time.
