When you start asking for advice on some of the ways to stop smoking you’ll get a list of things that looks something like this:
- Start an exercise program
- Get out and walk everyday
- Chew gum to beat the carving
- Do something with your hands to keep them busy
- Drink lots of water
- Try deep breathing techniques to relax your body and mind
- Go to an entertainment spot where they don’t allow smoking
- Get together more often with non-smoking friends
- Take hypnosis therapy sessions
Ok, that’s a great list of approaches one could take. The approach I will focus on in this article is the last one, with a twist.
Self Hypnosis To Quit Smoking
Technology has allowed for the development of guided self hypnosis sessions. Rather than having to go to a therapist, guided audio sessions are done in the convenience and comfort of one’s own home. All that is required is a quiet place to relax, slip on the head phones or ear buds and just listen. In particular, using Self-Hypnosis sessions.
How To Self Hypnotize
I’m going to help you to understand the simplicity of hypnosis… hypnosis really is just a deep state of relaxation!
There really are no best self hypnosis techniques because it’s different for everyone. So now when you think about hypnosis you know it’s just a deep state of relaxation, that’s the definition, how you’re going to achieve a deeply relaxed hypnotic state is up to you.
It can be as simple as sitting down in a comfortable chair with some quiet music, closing our eyes and following our breath in and following our breath out.
You can count back from 100, again sitting comfortably, open your eyes on the even numbers and close your eyes on the odd numbers. This technique is going to induce hypnosis as your eyes are going to get tired… so you open your eyes on 100, close your eyes on 99, open your eyes on 98, close your eyes on 97 and so on. Hypnosis is induced because you get way too tired trying to make it down to 1 and the conscious mind become so confused it just goes off to sleep. And now the subconscious mind is open which means you are in hypnosis.
Another method is progressively relaxing your muscles. You imagine seeing a light coming in through the top of your head. You let the light flow down over your whole body feeling it relax every part as it goes. This is a good and widely used self-hypnosis technique.
Perhaps the easiest and most popular approach is using professionally recorded audio sessions. Regardless of your level of experience these audios are extremely effective. You can find sessions that are created to work for specific needs such as stop smoking, reduce anxiety and stress, overcome fears and emotional distress. The list is very extensive and a session can be found for most any situation.
Stop Smoking Audio Session
Smoking is an incredibly strong addiction. Millions of people struggle to quit each year, and unfortunately the majority fail. The nicotine gum, patches, and books all provide help but they fail to provide the real internal support needed to follow the process through.
Self hypnosis provides that internal support. Using a recorded session prepared by a certified hypnotherapist is a major weapon in the fight against dissolving additions.
With that said it must include the desire, the true want to quit smoking. The smoker has to be absolutely keen to give up the habit.

A Quick Look At Hypnotherapy
Hypnotherapy is a form of psychotherapy in which a patient is guided into a deep state of relaxation or trans-like state by a therapist. Once in that state the therapist works with the patient to help them create the change they are looking for in their life. This is done by the therapist using different guided relaxation techniques, visualizations, increased awareness of the mental and physical state, all of which help us slip into this trance.
While in this state, a person is able to shut off any outside noise, worry, or distraction and focus in on specific thoughts or tasks. Since this is done in such a state of relaxation, it can be helpful to try out hypnosis as a way to tap into any memories or experiences that may be too painful to recall consciously. Hypnosis is almost always done in combination with regular psychotherapy treatment. Being in this trance like state makes us more open to suggestion and change, so it’s VERY important that you know and trust your hypnotherapist.
Most commonly, hypnotherapy is used for 2 purposes:
- For suggestion: Meaning that people will seek out hypnosis as a way to have someone help them change a behavior they haven’t been able to change on their own, such as smoking, overcome test anxiety or even stop nail-biting. Many people have also reported using hypnotherapy as a way to better manage chronic pain.
- Analysis: Meaning that we would try out hypnosis as a way to explore a very painful root of our issue. For example, let’s say we could never really process through the abuse that caused our eating disorder. Every time it was just too painful and we would dissociate or completely shut down.
Hypnosis is another option that can allow us to finally get to the root of our struggles and bring it into our conscious mind. You can learn more about benefits of hypnotherapy and self hypnosis at PubMed website. In the PubMed search bar enter ‘scientific proof for the effectiveness of hypnosis’ or ‘the effectiveness of self-hypnosis’ and you will find a ton of articles, research based studies as well as evidence based studies that do support many beneficial claims.
