Quitting smoking…7 Habits Of Self Destructive People

With two Quit cigarettes programmes to suit your budget and needs, from as little as $69

Hi Future Non Smoker

I have to admit to browsing my book shelf when looking for a title for this article. 7 Habits of self-destructive people is of course a cheap rip off from the classic business book by Stephen Covey, 7 habits of highly successfully people.

I have to admit I haven’t thought through an entire list of self-destructive habits, I’m sure you can make your own list, but certainly smoking would have to compete for a top listing. And it falls perfectly into the category of self-destructive.

In fact I can’t think of any positive grouping it could possibly below to. But deep down you already know that, it’s not cool, or sophisticated, or fashionable, or healthy, or likely to win you a heart or a job.

It’s just a rotten deadly stinking expensive, and life stripping habit.

Habit number one is to be proactive. Become more informed about smoking dangers, go right into the gory details. Now research the best way to quit, and you will quickly discover that hypnosis is the best by far.

Habit number two of the Covey book is to start with the end in mind. This is great advice. Clearly see yourself having already quit cigarettes.

Now work back a little, see yourself in a successful hypnosis session, all going well, you are relaxed and feeling good. You leave the session full of confidence and take a few deep clean breaths of fresh air.

Now see yourself feeling excited about going for your session, really looking forward to quitting for good, putting out that last smoke and saying goodbye like you would to a parasite that has been flushed from your body.

Go back earlier to picking up the phone and booking your hypnosis appointment, and even before that making your firm decision to quit.

Run this movie in your mind backwards and forwards, see it clearly, feel the benefits and the emotions and make it as real as possible. This process is like beginning to wipe the slate clean and sets you up perfectly for your quit hypnosis session.

You have already moved out of self-destructive mode into self-care mode. Psychologically speaking this is a huge shift which starts as soon as you make the decision to quit, and is strengthened with each step you take.

Stephen Covey became famous with his book and who would have thought that there would have been a message for smokers in his work

Quit Smoking…Punishment & Comfort

July 2, 2015 by  
Filed under Quit smoking

Hi Future Non Smoker

Quit Smoking…Punishment & Comfort

A client recently came back to see me. She had been doing well until she had a big bust up with her partner, so she resorted to smoking again. I asked her why she choose to smoke again and initially she couldn’t give me a clear answer.

But as I pressed the question she admitted that smoking was comforting to her. She admitted that she didn’t enjoy it, so being comforted by it was a bit confusing to her.

As we continued our pre-hypnosis chat I ran some ideas by her as they came to mind, when I mentioned punishment, it struck a cord and she teared up. She realised that she had used cigarettes as a form of self punishment over the years.

This usually comes from feelings of not being good enough or not deserving. So she was smoking for comfort and to punish herself. She could see the internal conflict, but couldn’t understand her actions.

I’m not a psychologist so I don’t try to explain why she is doing this. It was enough for her to become aware of her pattern, which had repeated throughout her life.

So when we did the hypnosis I could focus on this comfort, punishment cycle. The use of cigarettes as a comfort is fairly common and I address it regularly, but using cigarettes as a form of self-punishment was a new realisation to me.

This may not make any sense to you, so let’s take a closer look at it.

You are already using cigarettes for comfort. You smoke when you are stressed, tired, need to relax and need a break.

But you may not believe that you are smoking to punish yourself. So what else would you call sucking in toxic poisoness smoke into your lungs 10, 20 or more times per day, in the full knowledge that just like the ads say, every smoke is doing you harm.

You see the images on the packets, the television ads and perhaps you even know someone who has died or is dying from smoking and yet you continue to smoke. Call it what you want to, but self-punishment is as good a term as any.

It probably didn’t start that way, but at some point that’s exactly what happened. Denial won’t change anything, but quitting will. It will change so many aspects of your life to come that we could spend hours listing them.

So just do it, use hypnosis to put it behind you for good.

Quit Smoking…So Long And Thanks For All The Fish

Quit Smoking…So Long And Thanks For All The Fish

With two Quit cigarettes programmes to suit your budget and needs, from as little as $69

Hi Future Non Smoker

In the Douglas Adams classic “A hitch hikers guide to the universe’ So long and thanks for all the fish were the parting words of the dolphins as they left earth, just before it was destroyed to make way for a hyper-space bi pass.

In many movies there have been famous parting words. On Australian television there are a couple of anti-smoking ads which feature smokers on their death beds, the content of their parting words are implied.

It’s been said and written many times that people on their death beds never say they wished they worked more hours or lead busier lives. I’ve not seen it written but I will go out on a limb and state that no one has ever uttered the words that they wished they had smoked more, with their dying gasps.

So what about you? What if you just pull your head out of the sand for a minute and cast aside all of those crazy hopeful beliefs that smoking won’t kill you. What will your last words and thoughts be?

Will you claim that you enjoyed smoking and that everyone has to die sometime? Or will you be wracked with regret and sorrow.

The fact is that no one knows your future, but you can take steps to perhaps to create a brighter future. Or at least the best future possible for you.

You can’t change the past, every cigarette is a part of your history. But you can change the present, you can take action, you can quit smoking using hypnosis.

The only question is, which now moment will you choose to start your pushing away from a horrible, nasty, slow and painful death.

It could be now today, or now in July 2031. The similarities are that you will quit smoking just as easily now as you would then. The difference is however that you your body will have suffered so much more and that you will have less ability to recover.

Ekhart Toll Published a book entitled the power of now. So why not embrace the power of now, today. Often I hear people say that they are waiting for the right time to quit. Well I have to tell you that there never will be a perfect time.

Right now is as good as it gets, so take action pull your head out of the sand and book an appointment.

Quit Smoking…The French Don’t Always Get It Right

With two Quit cigarettes programmes to suit your budget and needs, from as little as $69

Hi Future Non Smoker

In many respects the French are seen as a model of class. Great food, wine, fashion, impressive towers, supposedly slim women and depending on your view, classy cars.

But there is one area that we certainly don’t want to follow their lead. Their smoking rate, up to the last censes was rising. It sits at 30% with young women pushing the rates along.

This is one trend that we definitely wouldn’t want to follow. Fortunately our statistics are better with males at 21% and females at 16% which is good but it still represents nearly a million lives which will be limited at best or made extremely painful by using cigarettes.

If you consider that the average person is closely connected to about four other people that means, that at some point there will be around 3,200,000 lives strongly impacted by cigarettes.

That is 7% of the Australian population will suffer because of cigarettes. So these are just numbers maybe they mean something to you and maybe they don’t. It’s easy to dismiss numbers and statistics and pretend these don’t mean anything to us.

But ask any family member of a smoker who has died or any smoker struggling to breathe or one who spends too much time in doctor’s surgeries if these statistics have meaning, they will tell you of the fear and the pain and the loss and the anger.

None of this sounds very classy. You never see French movies where the star is delivering smooth lines in a cancer ward or maybe the beautiful woman in haute-couture with a breathing tube in her throat.

But that is the real back story, nothing cool or sophisticated. Nothing suave nor debonair, just nasty and painful and sad.

I have published about 250 articles on smoking, I would like to write happy stories, but I’m speaking to smokers not ex-smokers so it’s very difficult to put a good spin on these messages. There just isn’t anything cheerful to write about except, that there is an out.

There is a way to get yourself out of the film noir and back into a feel good, living happily ever after story.

Hypnosis will free you, not beating your head against the wall with cold turkey or mincing your brain with pharmaceuticals or increasing your toxic load with nicotine replacement.

So maybe it’s time to write a new script for your life and enjoy the new cool, not smoking.

Quit Smoking…Real Ninja’s Don’t Smoke

June 22, 2015 by  
Filed under Quit smoking

With two Quit cigarettes programmes to suit your budget and needs, from as little as $69

Hi Future Non Smoker

When I think back over the years in sports I’ve engaged in how many people used to smoke. Martial Arts has long been a passion and in my early days rugby league and running.

I can clearly see people smoking after a fun run, or after a hard martial arts training session and sometimes even during a break. I could never worked out how it worked. Some of us would be bent over trying to suck air into our lungs and a few would go outside for a smoke.

I guess they were drawing hard as well just with a cigarette in the middle. I those days I never rated people’s performance down because of smoking, some were just fitter than others, but it must have made a huge difference.

Athletes of all kinds are seen smoking in the old movies, as was the habit of the day, maybe the four minute mile would have been broken sooner if some early champions hadn’t smoked. We just don’t know. But it’s safe to say that many people never reached their athletic potential as smokers.

The old Ninja’s smoked heavily as was the social norm, but there is no way they were jumping backwards in trees or running fast for long distances or able to hold their breath under water like the movies as smokers.

I suspect cigarettes would have robbed them of their super powers.

So what superpower have you lost? Maybe you’re not a Ninja, although there are plenty of people still train in Ninjitsu and statistically 10-20% would smoke.

At an elite level smoking would barely exist, although other drugs have made their way into the lives of the fit and famous.

But at a weekend warrior level there are still plenty of people not getting the best from their training because of cigarettes.

This also makes me think of how we prioritise things in our lives. Have you every stopped to think about how much importance you give cigarettes.

Smokers come in second in many areas of life. They miss important moments being out of the room smoking. They are negatively judged fairly or unfairly. Is second good enough? In some areas of life like relationships being second is another name for losing, and what a shame to lose just to keep smoking.

Just to keep harming yourself. Hypnosis has proven to be the most successful way to quit so if you are sick of second best you know what to do next.

Quit Smoking…Taming the Smoking Dragon

Quit Smoking…Taming the Smoking Dragon

With two Quit cigarettes programmes to suit your budget and needs, from as little as $69

Hi Future Non Smoker

On the maps of old there would often be a dark place with the warning. There be dragons! Obviously this would be a very dangerous place. And typically the dragons would blow fire and smoke from their nostrils.

But the dragons of old were difficult to train and manage, just as your inner dragon is difficult to control. If you think of smoking as an external thing, as a dragon that is not a part of you, but something that has taken control of you, then the process can be easier.

If you believe it’s a part of then how will you ever separate you from the habit. So start to see it as the dragon, sure dragons are cool but they are dangerous and killed people in the myths.

So the strategy is from now on to treat every cigarette as a foreign invader, a dragon from the dark ages trying to destroy your kingdom. Treat it as an enemy. Look at your packet with disgust and talk to each cigarette.

You may appear slightly mad if you do this in public, probably in your mind will do. But in the privacy of your own home look at it before lighting up and say something like: “You dirty stinking thing, I’m sick of controlling my life, I’m sick of you robbing me financially and I’ve had enough of you destroying my health and my life.

(Back to dragons) I’m going to slay you, cut you down and be free from you forever. Say it with passion and mean it, get angry! Get serious! This is your life and your future at stake. This is no fairy tale, the dragon is real and it’s out to get you.

Your self-talk is the first phase, it prepares you for your hypnosis session. Self-talk at best can motivate you, but the hypnosis takes those same messages deep into your unconscious mind, and this will set you free.

Hypnosis is the most effective dragon slaying weapon you can use. It’s like putting on your armor and swinging your magic sword and returning triumphant from battle.

Ok that’s a bit overkill, but the dangers in the long run are just as real as dragon fighting, just slower, which gives you more time to think about your actions. At least a dragon has the decency to whip your head off quickly.

So start taming your dragon and get ready for a healthier life.

Quitting Smoking…A Tale Of Two Sisters

Quitting Smoking…A Tale Of Two Sisters

With two Quit cigarettes programmes to suit your budget and needs, from as little as $69

Hi Future Non Smoker

There have been a number of studies using twins, one a smoker and one a non-smoker. The advantage of twins is obvious, given that they lead similar lives, in general they should age at a similar rate. A famous study followed twins until age 39, one a smoker and one a non-smoker, and the results were alarming.

In the studies they controlled for other things such as alcohol and sun exposure etc.

So the differences are obvious. The first is the facial appearance. The skin loses its elasticity and forms lines around the mouth and eyes and jowls. In photos of twins even the underlying muscles are lax and diminished.

The classic look for thin women is the cats bum look. The skin pulls tight around the mouth and a lot of fine lines appear.

It’s easy to see the differences in study photos but the real question and concern is why this is happening. Maybe you could stop for a moment and consider what sort of things are going on in your body to make these changes occur.

The problem for most smokers is that there is no one else to compare yourself with, you have no idea what you would have looked like if you never smoked. In some cases the clue lies in the fact that some smokers look older than a younger sibling.

Back to what is going on in your body. These changes that are obvious in your face are occurring throughout every cell in your body. The toxins and poisons are everywhere. The lack of oxygen affects everything and everywhere.

The problem is that you can’t see what your liver or your lungs and every other part of your internal body look like.

Most smokers develop a cough at some time. When you next cough or hear a smoker cough perhaps you could let your mind wander to what is actually happening. Even a chest cold will aggravate the surface of the lungs, and that’s just a bit of mucus.

But in the lungs of most smokers, and probably yours the surface of the lungs are damaged. Just imagine the wrinkled face of an older smoker, with that same aging in your lungs.

Add to that the build-up fr of tar and you have a very scary situation which unfortunately all too often leads to lung cancer.

I haven’t even mentioned your heart, or arteries or your brain for that matter. There is not a single space in your body that is not affected by cigarettes, so there is nowhere to hide. But the good news is that it’s never too late to quit smoking using hypnosis.

Quitting smoking…Your Solution Lies In Your Mind

Quitting smoking…Your Solution Lies In Your Mind

With two Quit cigarettes programmes to suit your budget and needs, from as little as $69

Hi Future Non Smoker

Most smokers consider themselves addicted to nicotine. It is true that nicotine causes a short term release of dopamine which makes you feel good. In much the same way that when you dig your fingernails into your flesh and then you stop doing it, feels good.

But there is another part of your mind that is far more involved in keeping you smoking. It is your unconscious mind. This is the place where all of your reasons and excuses for smoking are locked in place.

Every time you try to quit the flood gates are open and these thoughts fill your conscious mind with negative beliefs about quitting. For most people this makes quitting almost impossible.

This is why just wanting to quit is not nearly enough. The problem lies in your unconscious and so does the solution.

The problem with discussing things like the conscious and unconscious minds is that they are not places that you can locate on a map of the brain. But none the less they are clearly understood as being real things with real jobs to do in our lives.

Hypnosis is the fastest way to influence the unconscious mind, and if that doesn’t happen then quitting will be a short term thing at best.

It’s like chaining up a vicious dog with a weak chain and hope it will remained restrained, but you know that it’s only a matter of time before it gets free and runs amok.

Hypnosis overcomes your natural barriers which can both harm you and protect you. Some equate the unconscious mind with the hard drive in a computer. The reality is that your mind is much more  powerful and complicated than any computer, but the interesting thing is that influencing your unconscious mind is very simple if done right.

After all you are unconsciously being influenced by marketers every day to get you to buy what they want you to.

In hypnosis we just gently slide past the barriers and with carefully crafted suggestions your old connections to smoking and your triggers just gently fall away. In their place are new strong convictions that will keep you on the side of being a non-smoker.

Your new life will be simple, just breathe fresh air, let your body heal itself cell by cell and this process will begin straight away and within a year your body will have gotten over your old habit and reconstructed itself.

Quitting Smoking…Creating A New Life Management System

June 15, 2015 by  
Filed under Quit smoking

With two Quit cigarettes programmes to suit your budget and needs, from as little as $69

Hi Future Non Smoker

Quitting Smoking…Creating A New Life Management System

We all like to think that we are in charge of or lives, but I’m here to tell you that as a smoker you have given over a very important aspect of your life management to cigarettes.

You may disagree but what is in control of your stress management or relaxation. What is your first port of call in a time of stress or crisis? You know that its cigarettes. You have found something outside of you to handle your internal world.

Unfortunately there are two problems here.

  1. Cigarettes to not manage stress, but they do make it worse. It is simple bio-chemistry; just add nicotine to a human, after a brief feeling of wellbeing the body produces adrenalin and the stress hormone cortisol.

Given that humans all have the same endocrine systems then every smoker feels more stressed by smoking.

  1. Your chosen method for stress management will possibly kill you and highly likely to make you very ill.

So by now you are becoming aware that you need a new life management system. Firstly you need to decide that your current way is no good for your life.

Next you need to use hypnosis to help you quit smoking and dump this destructive habit for good.

Then you need a better way to relax and to release stress. What you choose will depend on your personality. An active person may choose to exercise daily or at least having a relaxing walk.

Some may choose to read or to spend a little time in nature. But the research shows that some form of meditation works the best.

Before you run a mile you don’t need to be fancy and you don’t need to spend hours doing it. It’s a s simple as sitting in a quiet space and just notice your breath for 10 minutes, start with 5 minutes if it’s too much.

Please note. Only do this if you want less stress in your life, if you want to feel happier and to have a stronger immune system. Don’t do it if you prefer to feel stressed and tired and grumpy.

Research shows that that only 10 minutes per day will change the way your brain functions in just two weeks.

I wonder what effect the 200 chemicals from smoking that crossed into your brain every time you smoked have had. The good news is that you can unwind this effect, but your first step is to stop smoking.
