“Hypnosis is the most effective way of giving up smoking, according to the largest ever scientific comparison of ways of breaking the habit.” – New Scientist v136

Smoking Habits
Smokers in the UK are quitting at a rapid rate . . . and the vast majority of them DO NOT find it difficult.Hypnotherapy can stop you smoking for good in just one session if you have a genuine desire to quit. Smoking is one of the major causes of STRESS and ANXIETY so that when you light up a cigarette you can ‘calm your nerves’ you are doing the exact opposite.

People whoo smoke throughout their life are 80% more likely to suffer anxiety and clinical depression in middle age than non-smokers.

Once a person takes  up smoking their brain stops producing the motivational hormone Serotonin.

Once a person regains control by quitting smoking, they are able to regain control in other areas of their life.

The physical side of addiction to smoking is less than 10%. The remainder is ALL IN THE MIND – the subconscious mind where behaviour patterns are stored. Your smoking is not conscious behaviour, which is why trying to quit with conscious will power is not enough.

Hypnotherapy can access the subconscious mind, suggest new perspectives on the habit, and remove your desire smoking completely and permanently.

HYPNOTHERAPY IS FAST, EFFECTIVE AND POWERFUL TOOL FOR THE PERMANENT ERADICATION HABITS YOU NO LONGER NEED AND SMOKING IS PROBABLY THE EASIEST!

It is never too late
