How Hypnosis Can Help Quit Smoking
Quitting smoking can be incredibly difficult, but it’s a good decision for your health. If you have tried other methods to stop smoking and they haven’t worked, hypnosis could be an option for you. Hypnosis may be able to help you relax, manage anxiety, and kick your smoking habit for good.
Understand how hypnosis works. Unlike the myths in popular culture, hypnosis doesn’t render you unconscious, and you cannot be forced to do anything against your will while under hypnosis. Hypnosis first encourages you to relax. Relaxation is often achieved by deep breathing and visualization exercises. When Risa helps you she will speak very softly and slowly to you.
Once relaxed, hypnosis provides statements and suggestions to help you change your behavior. It is thought that the hypnotic state makes you more receptive to embracing suggestions. Hypnosis helps you achieve focus. While in a hypnotic state, ideally you will focus only on the goal that you want to accomplish. This enhanced focus can help you accept the suggestions and prepare you to work for your goal to finally quit smoking. Hypnosis will only help you make changes that you actually want to make. For hypnosis to help you, you must be committed to quit smoking.
