Can you imagine having to deal with nicotine withdrawals without any of the symptoms? That's right, you can withdraw from the filthy habit while symptoms like anxiety, irritability, headaches and mood swings are completely overridden. While you may be thinking this is too much to believe, hypnosis is a powerful way to alter physical sensation. Hypnosis is used in chronic pain control and even surgery. If hypnosis can control lifelong pain, it can certainly control a few days of anxiety and headaches. It is interesting discovering how these symptoms become just an idea and how this idea can be so easily dismissed because you are free of all of these symptoms.
You tell yourself that you smoke to get away, take a break, think clearly, feel better, feel independent... Ultimately you have connected cigarettes with a positive feeling. The part that you may find interesting is how you worked to make this connection. At some point in your life, toxic smoke entering your lungs and circulating through your entire body was a bad thing. There was some stimulus that re-wired your natural instinct to reject smoke and toxins that connected the idea of smoke to a positive emotion. Hypnosis simply allows you to sever the hardwired emotional connections and allows you to reconnect positive emotions to positive stimuli. It fortunately allows you the opportunity to reconnect nicotine and cigarettes to negative feelings and emotions.
Kicking the Habit...
Now that the symptoms of addiction are just an idea and you have forged new healthy and positive connections in your mind, you are still left with the habit. What are you going to to with your hands and what will help you breathe deeply and relax? Fortunately, hypnosis allows you to replace habits or completely remove the need for one. Many people find that when their cravings for cigarettes go away, so too does their need to replace the habit.
As you become more aware that smoking is completely controlled by your thoughts and what you think of cigarettes, you will discover your mind can begin to think of cigarettes in their true context. Cigarettes are toxic and they destroy health. Cigarettes are socially unacceptable and smokers are now forced to smoke outside in any weather. Cigarettes may have fit an effective strategy when you picked them up but it is a dated strategy and now is your time to put them down.
The significant problems we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them. – Albert Einstein
