Just one month from now, on 11th March, it will be No Smoking Day and last year, over 1.2 million people made an attempt to give up smoking on No Smoking Day. All over the UK, various promotional items advertising No Smoking Day and the benefits of giving up smoking, both to the smoker and to those around them, are appearing in places like nurseries, health centres and more.

For those who really want to stop smoking, it is worth taking a few minutes to consider their reasons why.

The reasons you want to give up smoking are what can drive you and there is no real reason for you to wait another month before you quit. There are all sorts of ways to help you get motivated and keep off the cigarettes, including nicotine patches, counselling and of course hypnotherapy.

Quitting smoking is probably one of the most famous treatments that hypnosis is known for, as it has helped people to quit smoking for life after just one session. One of the keys to its success is the client’s reasons for quitting. There is little point visiting a hypnotherapist to stop smoking if you don’t really want to stop. If you are doing it to keep your partner or family quiet it is unlikely to work.  Hypnosis can’t make anyone make life changes that they really don’t want to make so, if you really don’t want to stop, it will be a waste of your money and the hypnotherapist’s time. However, you do not have to believe in hypnotherapy for it to work. So, no matter how cynical you are of hypnotherapy, if you really want to quit smoking then hypnotherapy could be the answer to your prayers.
