Smoke Free Living


I just saw a client for a smoking cessation session – and he’s in his 70’s! He’s smoked for years and is a great example of the fact that it’s never too late to make positive changes in our lives.

Most of us know that smoking is bad for us and it’s a good idea to quit. Our lungs benefit – we decrease our chances of cancer, but did you know about these other benefits?

  • Vision improves – smoking damages your eyes

  • Decreases risk of heart attacks – smoking is the leading cause of heart attacks and heart disease

  • Thins out your blood – decreases the risk of forming blood clots

  • Less colds and infections – your cilia start to regrow and function normally

  • Shrinks your stomach – reduces belly fat and lowers your risk of diabetes

  • Improves your sex life – quitting lowers your chance of erectile dysfunction

  • Stronger immune system – you’re less likely to get sick

  • Stronger muscles – increases the availability of oxygen in your blood – creating healthier muscles

These are just a few benefits of giving up the smoking habit – there are lots more – including a better tasting mouth, food having amazing flavor, and all your clothes smelling clean and fresh again!

There’s also the financial benefits. A smoker who smokes 30 cigarettes a day (about 1.5 packs) at $5 per pack will save the following:

  • In 1 year - $2,737.50

  • In 10 years - $36,082.43

  • In 20 years - $100,700.56

It’s pretty eye opening isn’t it? The reason I’m going on about this is because smoking is actually an easy habit to eliminate from your life – if you’re ready to do it. Hypnosis makes quitting much easier and less painful. Here’s what research says about using hypnosis to stop smoking:

  • Hypnosis was deemed twice as effective than self-care methods – such as reading self-help books or quitting cold turkey

  • Hypnosis was twice as effective as nicotine replacement therapy with nicotine gum

  • Hypnosis was three times more effective than physician interventions that involved more than counseling

If you smoke – whether for a short time or for years – maybe it’s time to give it up. Hypnosis can help make that transition easier, quicker and more effective. I’d love to talk to you about my Stop Smoking package – and get you on the road to better health!
