Why stop smoking?
Smoking increases the risk of developing a wide range of health ailments and diseases. But the habit does not only harm the smokers' health, it can also have a negative impact on the people around them. Children and babies living with people who smoke are vulnerable to many health problems. This includes chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and an increased risk of cot death.
Some of the most common smoking-related illnesses include:
Infertility - Smoking affects the fertility of men and women, making it difficult to conceive.
Gum disease - As well as staining your teeth, smoking can cause premature tooth loss due to gum disease.
Heart disease - This is considered the UK’s biggest killer. Nearly one in six cases are smoking-related.
Lung cancer - More than 8 in 10 cases of lung cancer are directly related to smoking.
Other cancers - including mouth, throat, nose, blood, cervical and pancreatic cancer.
Adults who endure passive smoking for a long period of time are also at an increased risk of heart disease and lung cancer. Tobacco is also an irritant; therefore it can make conditions such as asthma worse.
Hypnotherapy and smoking
Hypnotherapy is a very effective treatment to quit smoking.
The method works to break the negative behaviours and thinking patterns associated with smoking. The thoughts and behaviours the smoker holds are often what prevents them from successfully giving up.
When you make the decision to stop smoking, the key aspect is to let go of the routine and change your perspective of cigarettes. Breaking an addiction like this is a challenge. Many people find changing how they think about something difficult. As hypnotherapy focuses on this change, it is rapidly becoming one of the most popular forms of treatment.
It is important to remember that hypnotherapy for smoking is not a quick fix. While for some people, just one session is enough to quit smoking (or continue the journey alone), others may benefit from follow-up sessions.
