How to Stop Smoking with Ease
habits run our lives
It's strange how willing
we sometimes are to learn a bad habit. There's nothing wrong with
habits, in fact we depend on them - the things we have learned
so well that we do them unconsciously. You could say that our
habits run our lives most of the time. It's not a problem unless
we have habits that work against us, like smoking, overeating
or drinking too much alcohol
of us at some stage of our lives have smoked a cigarette and for
most people it was a mixed experience. It may have been a long
time ago, but you might still remember the giddiness and sick
feeling when you started. We tended to put a brave face on it
- after all, we only wanted to look cool and grown up, to be like
our friends, so we persevered until our bodies got into the habit
of breathing smoke, even though that's an unnatural thing to do.
Then the habit took over. I have helped hundreds of people who
really would have preferred to quit, who didn't actually enjoy
smoking, but who didn't know how to stop. (see the 'stop smoking'
button on: www.smithandfriends)
people try to deal with bad habits by telling themselves off:
'Now there I go again! Why do I keep doing the same silly things?
I must be stupid, I know it's bad for me .' and it doesn't
work. You see, the trouble with habits is that they are run by
our unconscious minds - and the unconscious doesn't do logic.
Despite health warnings we still smoke, as if nothing bad can
happen to us.

stop undermining ourselves and start to feel more in charge of
magazine has found that hypnotherapy is the most effective way
to stop smoking.
University of Iowa combined results of over 600 studies covering
72,000 people from Europe and the U.S. These studies also concluded
that hypnotherapy is the most effective way to stop smoking.
my experience it's a case of getting on the right wavelength to
address the problem and, since our habits are unconscious, using
an unconscious approach to change them.
When you use the right approach it's amazing how much quicker
and easier it is to succeed. Can you imagine how much better you'll
feel when you've taken charge of your habits and you're living
the life you want to live?
on, dare to dream!
will I put on weight when I stop?
In the past, some people who succeeded in quitting found that
their unconscious minds tried to replace tobacco with overeating.
It's easy to understand how this happened when you remember that
your unconscious only ever wants to help you. (I know, sometimes
it has a funny way of doing it, but remember: it doesn't use logic.)
see, your unconscious learns to run a habit for you because it
thinks that's what you want. The trouble is, when you've changed
your conscious mind about what you want, you're still stuck with
habits are much easier for you to learn when they fit well with
what you really want - like being healthier, feeling better and
being more confident that you can live the life you really want
stress relief: relaxation music support
number of studies have reported that some two thirds of current
smokers report that they would like to quit smoking (WHO, 1999).
Many people who succeed in quitting simply lose all interest in
tobacco and don't feel the lack of a little outside help to replace
the routines of smoking.
others find it very helpful to be able to replace the sensation
of stress relief that they had associated with cigarettes.
Especially for those brave souls who have given up without help,
one of the first things to think about is, once you've given up
smoking, what will you use to help you relax when you're in a

food in your mouth instead of a cigarette. Now there is an alternative.
