How Can Hypnosis Help You Quit Smoking?
Hypnotherapy is well known for helping people quit smoking. However many people are skeptical simply because they don’t know how it works. Here we explain how hypnosis helps people quit smoking.

A hypnotherapist first guides the subject into a hypnotic trance. This is in reaity just a natural daydream state of mind. The conscious mind is tuned down and relaxed, which allows information to be absorbed more deeply into the subconscious mind. Most people slip into a hypnotic trance state when they are engrossed in the TV or in a good book. That is why advertisers will spend millions getting their messages out there during TV programmes and films.
The subconscious mind
Talking to the subconscious mind is critical when it comes to changing habits like smoking. All our automatic habits and urges are controlled by the subconscious mind. This is why you can talk for hours to a smoker about the dangers of smoking, but yet they still persist. You are talking to them on a conscious level and this is usually not enough. They may rationally and consciously not want to smoke, but subconsciously they still want to.
A hypnotherapist will guide the subject into a trance and then talk to the subconscious mind. They will attempt to convince it to change it’s mind about smoking, using techniques such as metaphors, imagery, and clever use of language. This has a far greater chance of making an impact than normal conscious conversation.
