Hypnotherapy for Addictions
Addiction may refer to a range of substance use including, caffeine, tobacco, pain killers, energy drinks or over eating.
People who generally are looking for ways to “take the edge off”, are either overwhelmed or are experiencing challenging thoughts or feelings. Addiction is usually a secondary concern because addiction is often as a result of an underlying ‘self-medication’ for anxiety.
How Fear Keeps You Smoking and, how to change it
If you’re a smoker and worried about the risks around COVID-19 then now would be a good time to think about quitting for good.
It’s a harsh reality that if you’re a smoker you’re more likely to get acute respiratory infections and have a higher risk of those infections becoming severe.
There has never been a better time to stop smoking.
But quitting is hard for many, and perhaps particularly so at a time of great stress and when many of our routines have been so suddenly disrupted
Perhaps, like the majority of smokers, the mere thought of stopping fills you with panic
If you smoke, the mere thought of giving up can fill you with PANIC…? Is this YOU?
You have every intention of quitting one day – just not today…
Is this YOU?
Most smokers continue to smoke for one reason…
THE ONLY THING THAT PREVENTS US FROM QUITTING IS: FEAR!
Fear – that you will have to undergo an unknown period of time suffering feelings of deprivation
Fear – that social occasions will not be quite as enjoyable without a cigarette
Fear – that you can’t concentrate or be as confident without that crutch
Fear – that your identity your personality or your character will change
Fear – that you will lose the “helpful friend” that helps you cope with stress And that quitting may cause you to gain a few pounds.
And here’s the news…
That fear of giving up is actually CREATED by cigarettes
You never decided to fall into the nicotine trap!
