Most people are well aware of that it is harmful to your health to smoke. Smoking is one of the most leading causes of lung cancer, chronic bronchitis and heart diseases. Recently it has also been shown that there is a strong link between smoking and hearing loss. Besides, research has shown that women's smoking during pregnancy increases the risk of pregnancy complications, premature delivery, low-birth-weight infants, stillbirth, and sudden infant death syndrome.
Thus there are many good reasons to quit smoking. Nevertheless, it is incredibly difficult for many people to stop smoking, probably because tobacco is just as addictive as for example heroin or cocaine. So, how shall it be done?
Hypnosis has shown to be one of the most efficient methods to quit smoking. The hypnotic trance is closely related to changes in our conscious mind, primarily our attention; for example you will be more susceptible to the suggestions of the hypnotist. A lot of surveys and reports have demonstrated the fact that even if quit smoking hypnosis is a rather new method it has proved its efficacy in a great number of cases.
The results of numerous tests all over the world have shown that hypnosis is one of the most effective aids in the cessation of smoking.
The number of sessions necessary to quit smoking depends upon several factors, i.e. how long time you have been a smoker, how much you smoke and of course your own motivation to quit smoking. However, in most cases one session will be sufficient to help you beat the urge to smoke, but in some cases two or three sessions will be required.
