Want to stop smoking but nothing works? Try hypnotherapy - from the comfort of your own home.




Despite nearly 100,000 people in the UK dying from smoking-related illnesses each year, nearly one sixth of adults are still smokers.
While it wasn’t until the early 20th century that the harmful effects of smoking were explored, studies continue to expose the dangers of the habit. Quitting smoking is a big challenge for a person to face and they will often need more than just willpower. For many people, hypnotherapy is an effective solution.
  • Nearly 50 per cent of all smokers die prematurely due to smoking-related diseases.
  • The life expectancy of a smoker is about 10 years less than that of a non-smoker.
  • In the UK is it estimated only half of long-term smokers live past the age of 70.
  • Up to 17,000 children under the age of five are admitted to hospital each year as a result of passive smoking-related illnesses.
It is important for the person to know why they want to quit before any successful attempts can be made. It is common for people to relapse if they are quitting for somebody else. If the individuals are making the decision for themselves, the chances of success can improve.
Why stop smoking?
Smoking increases the risk of developing a wide range of health ailments and diseases. But the habit does not only harm the smoker’s health, it can also have a negative impact on the people around them. Children and babies living with people who smoke are vulnerable to many health problems. This includes chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and an increased risk of cot death.
Some of the most common smoking-related illnesses include:
  • Infertility - Smoking affects the fertility of men and women, making it difficult to conceive.
  • Gum disease - As well as staining your teeth, smoking can cause premature tooth loss due to gum disease.
  • Heart disease - This is considered the UK’s biggest killer. Nearly one in six cases are smoking-related.
  • Lung cancer - More than eight in 10 cases of lung cancer are directly related to smoking.
  • Other cancers - This includes mouth, throat, nose, blood, cervical and pancreatic cancer.
Adults who endure passive smoking for a long period of time are also at an increased risk of heart disease and lung cancer. Tobacco is also an irritant; therefore it can make conditions such as asthma worse.
Hypnotherapy for smoking
A great number of people find hypnotherapy for smoking an effective treatment. The method works to break the negative behaviours and thinking patterns associated with smoking. The thoughts and behaviours the smoker holds is often what prevents them from successfully giving up.
When a person makes the decision to stop smoking, the key aspect is to let go of the routine and change their perspective of cigarettes. Breaking an addiction like this is a challenge. Many people find changing how they think about something difficult. As hypnotherapy focuses on this change, it is fast becoming one of the most popular forms of treatment.
When considering stop smoking hypnosis, the first thing the person has to do is make sure they are choosing to quit for themselves. Hypnosis for smoking has been found to be most effective when the person really wants to quit.
How Much Does it Cost?
Hypnotherapy for smoking cessation is usually done in just one session which costs £95. Now if you think you can't afford £95 think about how much money you're spending on cigarettes. Do you know if you smoke 20 fags a day you're literally burning at least £3,000 every year? 
Think what you could do with this money? And think also of the health benefits. It's really a no-brainer.
