Quit Smoking Sunshine Coast

Hi Future Non Smokers

Quitting Smoking on the Sunshine Coast brings all the same challenges that smokers experience anywhere. We do have a high number of fly in fly out workers. Many of them face a unique challenge of restricted smoking onsite and then over catch up at home.

Some are office workers with restricted opportunities to smoke during the day, yet manage to survive the day. Some go on long flights and manage many hours without a smoke yet race to the exit doors of the terminal on arrival, yet admit that if they had a longer flight they would have been OK.

Most smokers go all night without needing to wake for a smoke. But somehow need to smoke every hour or so when awake.

Some are construction workers or drivers who can smoke as much as they want to but if pressed can go for long periods without lighting up.

Some are people who are already suffering the ill effects of smoking. All those fear based messages are coming to life for them.

Some are stay at home parents who avoid smoking at home, and in some cases their children don’t even know they smoke. Or if they do they sometimes face the pain of standing outside while their child calls them through door, all the while wondering why on earth they are spending such valuable time like this.

Some with young babies shower after each smoke so not expose baby to their ashtray smell, some are pregnant and feel so guilty.

 You know that Sunshine Coast smokers are just like smokers everywhere, they have the same stories, the same struggles, and the same wishes and desires that smokers every have.

You want to live a long healthy life, to be able to enjoy people, places and events because you have the energy and wellbeing to do so. That’s not a lot to ask is it?

Just to live your life without feeling controlled by cigarettes, and to stop wasting thousands of dollars every year just poisoning yourself. In fact to just be a non smoker, to go through your life not thinking about smoking, and just feeling sorry for those smokers you see in the street or in social situations.

One thing many Sunshine Coast ex smokers have in common is that they have successfully joined the ranks of non smokers by using advanced hypnosis to put aside all those habits, all those future health concerns, all the hiding away in public places and of course wasting all that hard earned cash.

 

 

 

 

Quitting Smoking…South Brisbane And West End

September 24, 2014 by  
Filed under Quit smoking

Hi Future Non smoker

Life for smokers must feel like its closing in. As in other part of the city it has become increasingly difficult to smoke in south Brisbane and West end. While cigarettes are perfectly legal to purchase you need to hide further away to have your much needed smoke during a work break or while dining out.

There are two problems here, firstly the inconvenience of smoking and secondly the idea of the much needed cigarette. Cigarettes have at times been attributed with the almost magical powers of being able to wake you up of a morning, relax you after work, calm you when you are stressed, solve your boredom and help you to think to name just a few of it’s so called benefits.

Can a dried plant rolled in paper really have all these benefits? The short answer is no.

All of those situations have come about through repeated habit. Most smokers have had between 100,000 and 400,000 cigarettes. You probably don’t want to know how many you have smokes. It’s said that to create a habit you have to do it daily for 30 days.

What do you think happens when you do an action like smoking thousands of times. You may have had a smoke with coffee, 30,000 or more times. Maybe 40,000 cigarettes to relax and of course a smoke to start every day of you smoking life.

I’m sure you are beginning to see how such a habit develops, and continues, and of course how hard it seems to be to quit. The difficulty is compounded by hearing stories from smokers who have struggled, or government ads which remind you that it’s difficult but you need to keep on trying.

Or perhaps the major pharmaceutical company whose ad for it’s product stated that you will need to try at least six times before you succeed.

All of these do just one thing. They prime you to believe it will be very difficult. My main message to you is this. You can quit smoking, you can do it, millions have and so can you. It’s a simple matter of separating out your life and routines and smoking.

This is most easily done with hypnosis. It is a simple, safe, straightforward way to make important life changing new habits which will have a profound effect long after you even forget about being a smoker in the past. Just remember you can do it. You deserve it.

To quit smoking the fast easy way just call me for a complementary chat on 1300 203 422 in Australia.

 For those who can’t come to my clinics on the Sunshine Coast or Toowoomba we can easily help you quit smoking anywhere in the world. Just email me at newld@iinet.net.au. (paste into your email page) For details on how you can be free from smoking for life.

Hi Future Non Smokers

One of the problems in being at a distance from a capital city is a reduced access to important resources, such as quit smoking and weight loss.  Having lived and worked in Gladstone many years ago I maintain an interest in this important region.

So to remedy the problem I can come to you. Approximately once per month I will be in either Rockhampton or Gladstone offering hypnosis for quitting smoking and achieving your ideal weight.

You already know why you need to quit, the health problems, the rising costs not to mention the day to day things like not having the energy to keep up with your children or grandchildren. Or perhaps your morning hacking cough routine followed by a smoke and a coffee.

But do you know how it will feel when you quit? Imagine easily taking a deep breath first thing in the morning, having your coffee taste like coffee, being able to climb stairs or run with children without puffing and most importantly putting aside all those health risks so graphically portrayed on your cigarette packets.

Quitting Smoking…The Circle Of Cynicism

September 7, 2014 by  
Filed under Quit smoking

Hi Future Non Smoker

In a recent online article I read that a large North American Tobacco had also moved into the Nicotine replacement  Business. To use a marketing term they have closed the back door. Locking their customers into their product cycle.

People smoke, then they decide to quit, and turn to nicotine replacement, which has been proven to be of little effect beyond the placebo effect in closed door studies, and close to zero in real world studies.

Then they start smoking again, attempting several times on average before they manage to quit. In many instances it’s because they become ill in some form, such as a heart attack or emphysema. It doesn’t take a brain surgeon to see the only interest this company has is making profits.

This is of course a reasonable goal for a business but a highly cynical business model at best. I guess no one would have ever accused a cigarette company of ethical behaviour.

They are not the only ones of course. A few years ago it was announced that the Australian future fund, which is designed to provide savings in the years ahead was investing in cigarette companies. Talk about blatant hypocrisy.

Recent three dollar a packet price rises in Australia will prove to be an excellent way to top up the government coffers.

Even our quit smoking advertisements which focus on telling people how hard it is to quit, and that they have to keep trying until they succeed is just an exercise in priming their negative beliefs about their ability to quit.

Marketers using MRI technology have proven that grisly images on cigarette packets cause people to think about smoking.

My clients have told me many times that the television ads showing sick smokers make them want to light up straight away.

So what is going on? I believe it’s a combination of well intentioned, poorly executed quit programmes with a touch of cynical money grabbing.

Smokers know the truth. These programmes and price rises have little effect. It’s like being bullied by authorities to change. Most people will rail against such pressure.

Smokers who have quit all have one thing in common. They have made the decision to quit. They have decided when that would happen. It was then they brought a full commitment to stopping. And especially for those who choose hypnosis, they were surprised how easy it was for them to quit, and to remain a non smoker for life.

Quitting Smoking…$3 A Packet Price Rise Is That Enough?

September 3, 2014 by  
Filed under how to quit smoking

Hi Future Non Smoker

The first of September 2014 in Australia saw another rise in the price of cigarettes. This time $3 a packet and there will be even greater rises over the next four years. The price now is $20 to $25 per packet. This translates as a minimum of $1 per cigarette for even the cheapest smoke.

In four years time the tax alone for a 20 a day smoker will be $7300!

To a non smoker this sounds like the last straw, after all who would possibly spend $7000 a year on average on a dirty habit with the only outcome being bad at least.

On that same day my first clients were a couple who were spending $12,500 a year between them, and that was before the price increase. The woman was thinking about how the extra cash would improve their lives, but the guy admitted that even though they couldn’t afford it, money wasn’t a motivating factor in there quitting.

This first days of more expensive smokes has seen an increase of bookings, but that spike will dip again as smokers just absorb the price rise.

What is gained is a few extra people who quit, probably those who were ready anyway.  Of course if just one life is saved it’s all worth it. But, mostly the effect is that for those who can least afford it will be put under even greater financial pressure.

Some would say it’s a cynical exercise for a government which professes to want people to quit, that will enjoy the benefits of raising up to an extra $9,000,000 per week. Raising the collected taxes to over a billion dollars per year. Wow, what government would really want to give that up!

I’m sure there are those who really do care. Much of this money is poured into the health care system to support ill and dying smokers. The circle goes around and around, with no winners.

I must have heard it said hundreds of times that the cost isn’t a factor. And this will be true for many of you living outside of Australia where cigarettes are far less expensive.

Maybe there will come a time when nobody smokers, and not because they all died from lung cancer, but that will be a long long way off.

You can absorb the cost but if this is too much for you, in addition to all the other reasons you have for quitting your best bet is to book a quit smoking hypnosis as soon as possible.

Quit Smoking…200 Reasons And Counting

August 30, 2014 by  
Filed under how to quit smoking, Quit smoking

Hi Future Non Smokers

Since 2009 I have published 200 articles on the topic of quitting smoking. When I started there was no way I could have imagined finding 200 reasons to quit smoking. The fact that I have found 200 topics about stopping cigarettes in itself, tells a powerful story.

That there are so many reasons to stop smoking now. Even more than 200. Reasons that delve into every area of your life, physical, emotional, financial, family, time etc.

Every organ, every cell, every obvious and unobvious part of you is affected. Your time on this planet is so precious, but you are voluntarily giving up perhaps 14 years of your life.

14 years is a lot to sacrifice just for the pleasure of sucking in burning smoke. Of course not everyone loses all those years, some just experience failing health for decades, losing much of their quality of life along the way.

Unfortunately there has been little room for humor in those 200 articles, as there isn’t much to joke about with this topic. The only smiles are those on the faces of all those who have taken the action to quit and to take back their lives.

The emotional relief for them and their families cannot be under estimated. Of course after a few months most ex smokers forget about the danger they have left behind, in other words they just stop worrying.

So imagine for a moment, not having to worry about lung cancer or emphysema or any of those horrible conditions depicted on the cigarette packets. Or those television ads with a stressed out family, standing by the bedside of the dying smoker.

Now imagine yourself getting out of bed and taking an easy deep breath, feeling your lungs expand, and the best part is , there is no coughing, no gasping no nasty surprises from your lungs. With that easy breath comes a feeling of freedom, and a confidence that you have reclaimed a big chunk of those 14 years back.

I wonder what you will do with those years, family, travel, hobbies, and most importantly living!

Something that can easily be taken for granted, until that moment when the doctor announces that you have a smoking related cancer.

But that’s not you, because you are reading this article, you have taken a step, and maybe you have reached that point where you have had enough and you pick up the phone and make that all important appointment to see a quit smoking hypnosis specialist.

Quitting Smoking…Billy Joel Knew The Truth About Cigarettes.

August 26, 2014 by  
Filed under how to quit smoking

Hi Future Non Smoker

Sweet Virginia cigarettes are burning in my hand, they used to be a friend of mine but now I understand, it’s been burning up inside me for so long, but in the morning there will be hell to pay somewhere along the line.

These are some lines from an old billy Joel song, and they very much sum up the realities of smoking. I’m sure many of you have thought of cigarettes as your friend at some point.

That companion who is always there whether you are bored or lonely or stressed. There with your morning coffee or your, after work drink.  Always at hand to help out, always ready to relax you.

You may remember your friend being right there when you first noticed having less energy or started coughing in the morning. It was with you as you stepped out of your doctor’s office after being advised to quit.

Maybe it was there when you received that serious diagnosis. I’ve even seen people standing out the front of hospitals in their gowns hooked up to their drips, still sharing a special moment with their friend before returning to the ward to continue treatment.

For these people they have reached the point where there is hell to pay. Of course you wouldn’t let it get this far, would you? Well many have, and many still do!

You understand that this friend of yours is no friend at all. What kind of friend would deceive you, steal your hard earned cash and threaten to kill you.

The cleverly written lines by Billy Joel go right to the heart of the problem. Those cigarettes which drew you in, seemed to offer so much but were plotting against you all the time. If you don’t realise it by now then good luck, you may be one of the lucky few who slide through unscathed.

But if you want to get rid of that dodgy friend before there is hell to pay, then you need to consider quit smoking hypnosis. Because when you think about it you know it’s all about the habit. Those times your friend was there was about routine not some questionable drug habit.

All those moments spent with a cigarette, were just moments of self deception. Fooling yourself that some dried plant combined with chemicals and rolled in paper can have meaning in your life will surely end in pain.

Quitting Smoking…What Does It Really Mean To you?

August 21, 2014 by  
Filed under Quit smoking

Hi Future Non Smoker

Generally when asked, what quitting smoking means the answer is off the cuff and superficial, such as “I will feel healthier”

But what does this really mean? And does this answer provide the emotional power required to quit smoking for good. I have to say an emphatic no. If an easy answer is the best you can offer then I seriously question your real commitment to stopping cigarettes.

I guess at this point the less than serious will opt out, but I encourage you to take a long hard look in the mirror and find a powerful reason.

Given that you have seen hundreds of grisly images of dying smokers on cigarette packets and countless television commercials of people in sad smoking induced situations, you are most likely quite jaded and a little fatigued by fear based quit programmes.

So how can you access those deep powerful reasons which will be your guide to stopping cigarettes for life.

Perhaps you could take yourself to a quit place, and allow yourself to remember the important times in your life. To recall times when you felt healthy and well.

Now think about the things you still want to do in your life. Things that will work much better if you have your health and energy.

Really concentrate on seeing yourself doing those things, notice how you feel, how good that will be. Allow yourself to completely be immersed in those feelings and enjoy seeing your life unfolding.

Now quickly switch your mind to the same future if you don’t quit smoking. Your health has declined; your energy is low, see and feel how things would be different. Maybe you have had a serious diagnosis.

Now think about oranges or cows or anything else. No one wants to dwell on thoughts like these, but that imagined future is likely to happen and you know it.

So I’m sure you are beginning to gather a list of powerful reasons to quit. Each limitation of your future smoking life will add to the list. Keep looking at that list then make an appointment for a hypnosis quit smoking session.

A good therapist will take all those reasons and weave them into your session. But more importantly they will filter all those future healthy events into your unconscious mind and make it easier than you could imagine to walk away from cigarettes forever. Start planning for your life today.

Quitting Smoking…How Far Is Too Far?

August 16, 2014 by  
Filed under how to quit smoking

Hi Future Non Smoker

When you first started smoking, it’s most likely your friends did also, you were cool and grown up, part of the group and perhaps a bit of a rebel. But soon that changed.  You discovered that smoking didn’t make you special; you had just created for yourself a powerful dangerous habit.

Then in spite of all the warnings you continued, but for you how far is too far. Was it the first signs of loss of energy, or puffing climbing the stairs?

Maybe the cough when you wake up each day, or the more frequent colds. The slow decline of your cardio vascular health or the general feeling of being unwell, often blamed to aging, with the obvious signs of skin aging.

Through to the more serious problems, such as amputation from smoking caused diabetic complications or the long list of deadly illnesses lead by lung and throat cancers.

In my experience as a clinical hypnotist I have seen it all. From the person with the slight shortness of breath, to the emphysema sufferers, to the client who has had a limb amputated and facing the prospect of losing another.

Right through to the person who only has three months to live and has come in to quit in the desperate hope of just having a few weeks more on this planet with their loved ones.

So I ask you again, how far is too far. How much pain will you put up with, how sick will you become, how much of your body must fail or succumb to illness before you lean out of the window and shout to the world, that enough is enough.

When you weight it up; in the blue corner you have a habit which stinks and costs you a fortune over time. A habit which has conned you into believing you are getting some benefit instead of just a ticket to a premature demise.

In the red corner you get back as many as 14 years on your life, thousands of dollars in your pocket , not having to go outside to smoke, and the security of knowing you have given yourself the best chance to be healthy.

Don’t sweat over the past, it’s right now and the future that counts. The sooner you book your hypnosis quit smoking session the sooner you can get on with leading the best possible life. Just do it!

Quitting Smoking…Recognising The Big Con

August 12, 2014 by  
Filed under how to quit smoking

Hi Future Non Smoker

Smoking is one big con.

  1. When you started you thought you would look cool or sophisticated or at least more grow up. But it didn’t take long before you got over those feelings and grew up yourself.

 

  1. You thought it was a good way to bond with friends. Sharing clouds of smoke and all smelling like ashtrays doesn’t seem like such a great idea in hindsight.

 

But the con goes much deeper than just the superficial. Accepting smelling bad and spending a fortune over your life time, not to mention the added cost of health care and loss of income is just a part of the con.

 

  1. You were conned into believing that smoking could help you relax. Relaxing helps you relax not some stick of poison in your mouth.  Nicotine increases anxiety it’s as simple as that.

 

  1. Smoking relieves stress. Nicotine while briefly it delivers a dose of dopamine to give you a boost of feel good chemicals comes back quickly with a hit of cortisol which raises your stress. Simply stated smoking makes you stressed.

 

  1. Smoking helps you to think or manage boredom. Stopping what you are doing for a few minutes helps you think and the whole world of non smokers survives boredom perfectly well without lighting up.

 

  1. Smoking is harder to quit than heroin. This is just an urban myth, we all know that coming off heroin requires some serious medical intervention; coming off smoking just needs a good hypnosis session.

 

  1. A big con which has been perpetrated by government campaigns and pharmaceutical companies is that you will need several attempts to quit. This is not true!

 

  1. The biggest con is that nicotine is so highly addictive that you will need mind altering drugs with significant side effects or nicotine replacement at least. Real world studies show no benefits from nicotine replacement.

 

Perhaps the biggest injustice that continues to levied against smokers is that the most successful method to quit smoking, hypnosis, according to New Scientist, is still something of a secret, in spite of practitioners worldwide helping smokers every day to quit.

 

The simple fact is that for you to quit smoking, the best thing that you can do is to put all the past beliefs behind you and look at quitting with fresh eyes and feelings.

Decide to quit, believe you can do it and book your hypnosis session as soon as possible.

Quitting Smoking…Where Have All The flowers Gone

August 6, 2014 by  
Filed under Quit smoking

 

Hi Future Non Smoker

There was a famous anti war song in the late sixties entitled “where have all the flowers gone”, by Pete Seeger.  Not a very happy song but quite true. Someone could have equally written the song about smokers.

Where have all the smokers gone. Well the good news is that many have quit, but the bad news is that many have died or are likely to soon.

So why do so many continue to smoke given that we have known the truth about smoking since the late seventies. In spite of the American government refusing to believe the research that showed that smoking caused lung cancer, for several years.

Similarly it was recognised about the same time that smoking did not relieve stress, it just gave you a short term hit of feel good chemicals followed by the big hit of cortisol, the core stress hormone.

In the eighties the research continued into the effect of smoking and heart disease and diabetes, confirming more and more reasons to not smoke.

Yet people in countries where this information was freely available continued to take up or continue smoking. It’s almost impossible to believe that in this era of so much conclusive data that smoking kills, there are still large numbers of new people taking up smoking each year.

Sure more and more smokers are quitting than ever before, but the problem still exists for millions, and every year many young people take up the habit.

It’s not about being uninformed, the nanny state we live in plasters or consciousness with images and messages about the problems. It’s not about blatant stupidity, even seemingly intelligent people smoke, so what is the attraction for new smokers and why do so many continue, often in spite of painful reminders right in front of them.

Many know family members and friends who have died, some are feeling either mild or severe effects, yet it’s not enough. At the time of writing I have a potential hypnosis client who has suffered one amputation and facing another, yet still remains uncommitted to confirm his appointment. I cant imagine the thought processes involved.

Perhaps he is fearful of feeling some discomfort or not knowing what to do with his hands or even that he will miss his special smoking moments. But if you weight up the loss against the pain of being a double amputee, it is mind boggling.

What he is failing to grasp is that quitting with hypnosis is at best 100% pain free and at worse a mild discomfort over a couple of days. What a shame to have to live with that pain and regret.

Quitting Smoking…Better The Devil you Know?

August 1, 2014 by  
Filed under how to quit smoking

Hi Future Non Smoker

A reason I have heard many times that people give for not quitting smoking is that they can’t imagine life without a cigarette.

For many people in the forties and beyond they have smoked since they were in their early teens and virtually every event in their lives was accompanied by a smoke.

Smoking with friends when young,  stepping out for a quick last smoke before tying the wedding knot.  Cigarettes with the birth of children, or celebrating a business success.

Smokes to comfort, to calm, to energise, to think, to relax. Other smokes to fill in the gaps during boring times, or as a reason to escape from a party or dinner party for a few minutes.

If you stop and think back there will be so many occasions when a cigarette was just a natural part of your life. So many events, so many people you have shared a smoke with, friends family and strangers.

But now things have changed, perhaps some of those people are no longer with us, taken by the very habit which provided so many memories. Or perhaps you are one of few or the only remaining smoker in your social circle.

And instead of chatting away outside of the restaurant or party, you are there on your own, sucking that toxic smoke into your lungs while the fun is being had without you.

In those early days you were fit and healthy, now the morning cough and the lack of energy is a cruel reminder that smoking isn’t all it was cracked up to be.

Yes it may have seemed like a friend, always there to share your special moments, but that friend has turned on you. Robbing you financially and slowly draining your health in such a stealthy way that you can’t quite remember when you started to feel old.

This dodgy friend who still promises to solve your boredom and help you to think and relax, the friend you still rely on to get you going in the morning with a coffee.

This friend, the devil you know has sold you one lie after another with zero in return. Just the unspoken knowledge that one day it would turn on you and kill you.

You don’t have to stand for this any longer. None of those special times in your life was made any better by smoker, that was just another lie. If you have had enough and are ready to make the most of the next part of your life, then quit smoking hypnosis is the quickest most effective way to do it.

Quitting Smoking …How Your Body Will Respond

July 30, 2014 by  
Filed under Quit smoking

Hi future Non Smoker

Most people thinking about quitting can only focus on the problems they expect to experience. But virtually from the moment you quit your body will be letting out a huge sigh of relief.

Then it is all uphill from there. Within 24 hours your nicotine levels will be close to zero and you will be transporting more oxygen and much less carbon monoxide.

In just seven days your breathing will have dramatically improved and the small hairs will have begun to recover.

 This knowledge alone can give you comfort and convince you that you have made the right decision.

After two weeks your throat will be feeling better, you will be losing that classic smoking discomfort.

Three weeks in and your body could cope with surgery, your immune system is making a recovery and therefore wound healing will be much improved.

Six weeks on and your circulation will improve.

Around two months your insulin resistance will be subsiding, basically this allows you to feel well, plus a host of improved physical functions.

Around nine months your sinus and lungs will be better than they have in years.

Inside just a year your risk of heart attack, heart disease and stroke are less than half of that of a smoker.

It does take fifteen years for your risk of stroke to fall to that of someone who has never smoked. But don’t let this be an excuse if you are an older smoker. The benefits flow quickly to every part of your body, plus to your pocket through significant weekly savings, and your lifestyle, i.e. not smelling like an ashtray or having to stand outside in the cold to smoke, or skulk off to smoke so no one will know.

Your body has a remarkable capacity to tolerate various kinds of insult. Smoking thousands of cigarettes proves this. If your body immediately went into shock with your first smoke it would have done you a big favour.

But unfortunately you did tolerate the thousands of cigarettes you had, but only on the surface. All along, your cells and organs and every part of you has been suffering slowly, bit by bit, until you notice a lack of energy or breathing difficulties on exertion.

Maybe you start to cough up phlegm of a morning, so what everyone starts to slow down, but this isn’t about feeling a little off. This is the start of a very nasty deadly process. Fortunately there is a simple way to get you on the recovery trail, hypnosis will get you on the road to heath in as little as 90 minutes.

 

 

Quitting smoking…Take Five It’s Important

July 26, 2014 by  
Filed under Quit smoking

Hi Future Non Smoker

Most of us are familiar with the term to take five, but it has a special importance for you when quitting smoking.

The only possible benefit that smoking brings is that smokers often take a break to have their cigarette.  Over time these cigarettes are given magical powers such as helping you to think or relax. The simple fact is that it is the break itself that provides the benefit, the smoke is just the excuse to take the break.

In the mining industry in the past it would be common for a miner to stop, have a smoke and survey a rock wall or similar. It was often during these times that problems would be noticed. This time is so important that it is now standard procedure in the mines to take five.

Smoking is no longer allowed but the time out is. Many potentially hazardous situations are recognised and dealt with because of take five.

So what does this mean for you as a smoker wanting to quit? If you look at your smoking habit you will be able to identify those cigarettes which you have that are connected with taking five.

Sitting on your patio, or in your car before work.

The recharging smokes at morning or afternoon tea.

A few precious minutes near the back door or your work place.

The after work, wind down on your back deck alone or with your partner. Etc etc

You have your special smoking moments, which rightly you will miss when you quit cigarettes. Many people will give up these moments in the belief that they will trigger them to smoke. But this is a big mistake, because quickly you may feel twice as bad, no smokes and way to relax.

Firstly to remind you it’s the break which gives you the benefits, so it is important that you continue to take five. What you need is a new strategy.

First you can do simple things like sit in a different chair when you make phone calls. The same when you relax outside at home. Try a different cafe or again face a different way in your favourite.

Some people will stop having their breaks because they don’t feel justified, if they don’t have a reason to stop. Remember these break are important to your stress levels and decision making, so grab a cup of tea or coffee or just stop to take a few deep breaths or just stare out of the window.

These simple strategies are much more powerful than you can imagine and are made even more effective when you use hypnosis to quit smoking, because all those old habits will be addressed and your new take five habits introduced.

Quitting Smoking…Who Wants More Carbon Monoxide

July 22, 2014 by  
Filed under how to quit smoking

Hi Future Non Smoker

Carbon Monoxide, is a simple combination of one molecule of carbon and one of oxygen, which has no taste or colour, yet has a profound effect in your body.

While it is true that you produce carbon monoxide (CO) naturally in your body, like most things there is a natural optimal level.

CO is a common pollutant, most well known as the gas which released from car exhaust systems which can kill.

Some friends of fine who are dedicated smokers, like to cite the example of coffee drinkers sipping their brew at roadside tables. They argue that they are breathing in more pollution than smokers.

Unfortunately this is just another example of smoker rationalisation.

The concentration of CO in a smoker’s blood stream is ten times the amount seen in a non smoker in the same environment. The reason is simple, when you smoke you are directly breathing in high levels into a closed system.

The CO coming out of the cars passing the roadside cafe is being diluted by air movement. And depending on wind direction it may not even reach you as you enjoy your coffee.

The effects of CO poisoning, yes you are poisoning yourself, chronic low level exposure effects can range from headaches, vertigo, flu like feelings, depression, confusion, sleep problems, nausea and  memory loss to name a few, through to death from acute poisoning.

The good news is that when you quit smoking your CO levels will fall to close to zero in just one week! That’s right in just seven days you can replace the CO in your blood , which is toxic, with oxygen which is life giving.

So this is either another powerful reason to quit smoking or another inconvenient fact which must be filed away in the do not mention part of your brain, for which you will need to create an excuse, such as my friends did with the coffee drinkers.

Let’s assume you  have had enough CO and it’s time for oxygen to be your friend again, then hypnosis is the easiest way for you to once again to get your fair share of oxygen.

Freeing you to have more energy to pursue life, better sleep to enhance that increased energy, a more stable mood allowing for less stress and more happy moments, all of these effects and more can be enjoyed when you use hypnosis to stop smoking and reduce your carbon monoxide.
