Anti-Smoking: The New Scientist has reported on a recent study by the University of Iowa covering 72,000 smokers/ex-smokers from America and Europe.
It concluded that hypnosis is the most effective way of giving up smoking. “Sadly”, reported the New Scientist, “willpower counts for very little”. A smoker will have years of information built up in his memory store such as “I am a smoker”, “I can’t stop smoking”, “I have to smoke to alleviate stress”, “It gives me confidence”. These are subconscious responses when the subconscious has been faultily programmed.
Rationally we know that smoking is actually a major cause of mental and physical stress. We also know that we have much more control than we believe we have. Most of us give up when we go to bed, have an operation, go on aeroplanes, etc., etc. With the help of hypnosis, the subconscious mind can be reprogrammed, thereby enabling us to do whatever we consciously want to do.
Anti-Smoking Therapy is done in one session lasting up to 1½ hours and costs £130.00.
