The Mind Enhancement Center agrees with the CDC statement, “Smoking harms nearly every organ of the body, causing many diseases and affecting the health of smokers in general. Quitting smoking has immediate as well as long-term benefits for you and your loved ones.” A large percentage of smokers want to quit for health purposes, what’s holding them back? Well, there may be more than a couple reasons why. Smoking isn’t limited to physical habit; it’s a mental pattern as well. If you are ready to change your mindset and quit smoking, hypnosis can help.

Understanding the Physical Hook
The sensation of smoke filling your lungs and the feeling of relaxation that comes with it is only part of the craving. It’s the body’s physical response to the smoke and nicotine. Some may crave a cigarette just for the nicotine. However, this craving has its drawbacks. Nicotine withdrawal has many symptoms that are unpleasant, ranging from headaches to nausea. Understanding the health risks that come along with smoking and what’s triggering this habit is important, especially for hypnosis. During your session with our trained hypnotist, you can control your urges and suppress that automatic response to light up.
Understanding the Mental Compulsion
Many smokers believe cigarette smoking relieves stress, calms the nerves, and helps them relax. In reality, nicotine is a stimulant and actually has the opposite effect. Also, cigarette smoking is like an old friend that you don’t want to let go. Smoking becomes automatic for most users and they reach out for that cigarette without thinking. It is a compulsion. However, hypnotic suggestions can change your desire to smoke, giving you the power to overcome the urge to smoke.
