Does it really all just boil down to Willpower?
Have you ever felt that you lacked the necessary willpower to stop smoking?. After all you hear people all the time talking about using willpower to tackle the issue of stopping smoking.
So..you set the date in your head for quitting, marked it off in a big red circle in your calender and felt full of enthusiasm and confidence about just making it happen. The morning came and you were fighting fit and ready and prepared to tackle anything that came your way. You went to work.You were feeling hopeful and confident about getting through the whole day without letting a smoke go anywhere near your lips. For sure it felt a bit weird not having a cigarette.At times you felt a little jittery and anxious but you persevered and struggled through. Next day by the time the afternoon came around you climbed off your high horse and borrowed a cigarette from a co-worker. By the time lunchtime came around you were on your way out to buy yourself a pack of 20. Now you’re left feeling annoyed with yourself for being weak minded and just not having enough willpower.
Does this sound familiar to you, are you wondering what on earth you have to do to stop smoking for good?.Is it because you lack the willpower?. Is it about not being positive enough, not confident enough, not determined enough?. Are you not trying hard enough do you think?. The answer is simply a BIG FAT NO!.Its none of these things, so do yourself a favour and stop beating yourself up because you tried and failed. What messed things up was not a lack of willpower. Willpower has nothing to do with habits and addictions to things such a cigarettes. What it is to do with is a lack of understanding of psychological addiction. You have to understand how the habit or addiction to smoking works psychologically in order to end it. You have to first and foremost understand and realise how psychological habits and addictions work so you can dismantle them and turn the tables on them for once and for all.
Hypnosis has shown to be the most succesful way to stop smoking in many studies. One in particular is from the “New Scientists Journal” a reputable Journal that credits Hypnosis as “the most effective way of giving up smoking. (New Scientists ,1992, issue 1845) References: Schiffman’s Study.
Because habits and addictions are hugely psychological by nature then this makes the case for using hypnosis to deal with the part of the mind responsible for keeping the habit going even a person wants to stop desperately. Using Hypnosis to stop smoking has a vast advantage over many other cessation methods because it deals with the psychological reasons why people smoke. A lot of other methods only deal with the physical such as Patches and Gum.
