My approach to Quit Smoking
Smoking cigarettes is something that starts out innocently enough.
Back when you were younger, it was fun, enjoyable and socially acceptable.
Making you feel more mature, more desirable, maybe even cool. Or you’re the young rebel wanting to feel tough!
Unfortunately times have changed and society has now deemed smoking a disgusting habit. It doesn’t seem fair does it?
And you’re here right now, looking for the best way to help you quit smoking once and for all.
You are sick and tired of the struggle. Everything you have tried so far has failed. Cold turkey, patches, gum, champix.
It’s time to end the struggle. Time to try something that works!
I have helped hundreds of people to quit smoking with hypnosis.
I understand why it’s hard to quit.
And over the years I have discovered that for some people, smoking cigarettes is more than a habit. It is way of helping them cope with life’s stresses.
That is why I have developed two different approaches to help you to quit smoking cigarettes for good.
The 2 different approaches are:
The Accelerated Approach to Quit Smoking program
In this program we focus on the habits and behaviours of smoking.
Helping you to change how you think and how you feel about smoking. And being happy with the decision that you are making. To never smoke again. Freeing you to adopt a new set of healthier habits. It’s about releasing you from the hold that smoking has had on you.
It is on average 2 x 90 minute sessions of hypnotherapy. This program works on the mindset to break the habit of smoking for good.
This programs includes:
- 2 x 90 minute sessions of hypnotherapy
- “Breaking Bad Habits” support audio MP3 download
- “6 Triggers of Smoking” information handout
The 6 Triggers of Smoking
- Tired – need more energy
- Stressed – need to relax
- Agitated – need to calm down
Did you know that 5 of the 6 triggers of smoking are psychological?
That’s right, triggers 1 to 5 are psychological.
And most people are not addicted to nicotine. If you can go long periods of time comfortably without a cigarette, you are not addicted. For example, if you can sleep through the night without the need to get up and smoke, chances are you are not addicted. Only a very small percentage of smokers are actually addicted to nicotine. Isn’t that good to know!
That is why using hypnotherapy to quit smoking is so successful in helping people quit once and for all. Because we reprogram those 6 triggers of smoking under hypnosis and the smoking disappears.
But, the therapeutic approach to quitting is required if you:
- haven’t quit smoking at the end of the Accelerated Approach
- have started to gain weight
- have taken up another bad habit instead of smoking
- start to feel emotional, eg, weepy, nervous, anxious, moody, irritable
Most people think that the act of trying to quit smoking causes these feelings. When in fact the smoking was just masking them.
Those feelings were there all along and you weren’t aware of them. Because you were self-medicating with cigarettes to not feel them. If this has been the case for you in the past, then the therapeutic approach to quitting is recommended for you.
The Therapeutic Approach to Quit Smoking program
When the smoking is acting as a band aid. Providing some sense of comfort from the wound underneath.
Before we remove the band aid, we must allow the wound to heal.
The therapeutic approach does just that.
As the name suggests, it is therapeutic. We work to uncover the underlying cause of the smoking.
You see, smoking has become a symptom of a deeper issue. Most likely emotional. Which you have been trying to self-medicate yourself from feeling.
In hypnosis, we remove those emotional ties that have been created with the cigarette. And get rid of the internal conflict and self-sabotaging behaviour you experience.
This is on average 6 x 90 minute sessions of hypnotherapy. This approach is for those whom smoking is more than a habit. And has become a coping mechanism for life’s stresses. For these cases, before we address the smoking, we must address the other issues. This is important because if the root cause of the issue is not addressed and you stop smoking, you will most likely pick up another bad habit in its place. Such as eating too much or drinking too much alcohol, as a substitute coping mechanism.
That is why some people gain weight after quitting. And my program prevents this from happening to you.
This programs includes:
- 6 x 90 minute sessions of hypnotherapy
- “Breaking Bad Habits” support audio MP3 download
- “Secret Language of Feelings” information handout
Do you have a fear of gaining weight once you quit smoking?
Don’t worry! Hypnosis can help with that.
The reason why people gain weight when they stop smoking is that they have substituted the cigarette with food.
Instead of putting a cigarette in their mouth, they are putting a biscuit or a chocolate bar in their mouth. All they have done is transferred one bad habit to another. The cigarette has become a distraction from how they feel.
Once you neutralize the underlying negative emotions that have triggered you to want that cigarette or feel the need to eat. Then the smoking or the comfort eating disappears.
Get to know what your feelings are trying to tell you
When you sign up for the therapeutic approach to quit smoking program, you will get more than just becoming a non-smoker. You will also begin to understand yourself on a much deeper level. You will learn what your feelings are actually trying to tell you. Enabling you to satisfy your feelings in a better way.
Most people report an improvement in their general wellbeing. Feeling calmer, more in control and notice an improvement in their relationships.

I don’t need to sell you on the benefits of quitting
But you are here because you want to:
- Be healthier
- Protect your future health
- Look and feel better
- Save money
- Be free of the habit and addiction once and for all
Imagine yourself now as a non-smoker. Non-smokers don’t have to try to be non-smokers,
It’s easy when you take the holistic approach to
So, why do you want to quit?
Is it because:
- It is affecting your health, appearance and self-esteem
- The cost of cigarettes is rising
- The inconvenience of it all
- You feel ostracised for being a smoking
- You don’t enjoy smoking anymore
Success on the program
Attempting to quit because your partner wants you to stop will usually result in failure. Hypnotherapy cannot make you do something you don’t want to do. So if you are thinking to yourself, “I really should quit”, there is no point in attempting to quit.
Don’t torment yourself or waste your time and money until you can honestly say to yourself…
”I really want to quit”.
Most people quit smoking within the time frame of the program. Some will quit in that very first session; while others will cut down considerably, and then quit altogether during the program. You quit when the time is right for you. Whichever way you chose to quit is fine — the most important thing is that you quit.
Enjoy life as a non-smoker
Anna has given me the tools and strength to become a non-smoker, which previously I didn’t have. I feel extremely confident that now I can enjoy life as a non-smoker.
This experience really was invaluable.
