But what you probably don’t know
Is that, despite all this knowledge, its entirely natural for you not to be driven to give up.
Your smoking habit is not a conscious behaviour
…and so it cannot be controlled by conscious determination.
Of course you can try and be conscious of not smoking, but this is difficult to maintain for very long. The reason you smoke and the continuation of the habit are subconscious beliefs and behaviours.
The good news
Is that with a strong desire, you can give up without unnecessary effort or side-effects.
Hypnotherapy provides a context that can enable you to form fresh perspectives and understandings regarding the smoking habit and any links with stressful situations, social activities, and relationships.
That’s why it only takes one hypnotherapy session to stop.
As long as a genuine desire to be free of the habit exists, and you are not in emotional turmoil then hypnotherapy will help you do the rest.
This is a one-off double session lasting up to two hours.
