Break Your Cigarette Habit With Hypnotherapy And Neuro Linguistic Programming

By Expert Author: webmaster

Today it’s harder and harder to be a smoker. From bars to restaurants to wherever else you can think of, cigarette smoking has been banned.

This is for good reasons. Not only can cigarette smoking harm you, it harms everyone else that comes into contact with your second hand smoke.

This article explores the very best hypnosis and Neuro Linguistic Programming Techniques that are available for

you to use to quit smoking. These techniques make it as painless as possible to break your cigarette habit.

While there are three parts to cigarette addiction, only one part is physical. The other parts are psychological.

Part 1 – Smoking relaxes you and gives you pleasure

As a baby, when you got restless, your mother would put her nipple into your mouth. This would relax you and help you go to sleep. Since this was repeated many, many times, your subconscious

mind was programmed to think that when something about the size of a nipple goes into your mouth, you get relaxation and pleasure from it.

Smokers often transfer these feelings to cigarettes. This means when you feel anxious or tense as an adult, you put a cigarette in your mouth to calm yourself down.

Part 2 – Your smoking habit is a conditioned response

Ivan Pavlov was the first scientist to work with what is now knows as classical conditioning. He found that dogs would salivate (drool) when he came into the room. He thought this was because they

associated him with food.

He devised and experiment where he rang a bell every time that he fed his dogs. He found that after a few repetitions, all he had to do was to ring the bell, and the dogs would salivate.

This is known as association.

You are classically conditioned to smoke though associations. Some action or environmental cue causes you to reach for a cigarette.

For example: In the morning you will automatically get an urge to smoke as you drink a cup of coffee. (This is known as a trigger.)

This works because your mind has been conditioned to reach for a cigarette when you smell a cup of coffee and/or see it. Your mind has associated coffee with smoking. When presented with a cup

of coffee your mind flashes images of smoking a cigarette.

While you are probably unaware of those mental images of smoking a cigarette it doesn’t prevent you from reaching for a smoke. One thing happens and it triggers the other – automatically.

Part 3 – Smoking has a slight physical addiction

After over a decade of working with several thousand smokers I can give you my guarantee that the physical addiction to tobacco is the weakest part of the smoking addiction. In fact, most experts

agree that only ten percent of the smoking addiction to tobacco is physical.

That means 90% of the smoking addiction are the psychological and emotional parts!

How Hypnotherapy and Neuro Linguistic Programming Can Help You to Quit Smoking

When you use hypnotherapy to create relaxation and eliminate the feelings of tension that trigger a smoker to reach for a cigarette (part 1)… and when you erase the conditioned response of feeling

compulsions for cigarettes when having a cup of coffee, driving, or finishing a meal, etc. (Part 2)… then you can quit smoking without having to suffer from any withdrawal symptoms what-so-


Hypnotherapy and Neuro Linguistic Programming can help to counter the triggers that cause a smoker to reach for a cigarette. This can help them quit smoking.

Hypnotherapy and Neuro Linguistic Programming will make it easy for you to give up cigarettes because it takes care of Parts 1 & 2!

Here is how Hypnotherapy and Neuro Linguistic Programming Techniques Can Help:

Part 1 is the reason smokers reach for a cigarette when stressed giving them a feeling of relaxation and pleasure.

Your thoughts create your feelings of stress. In other words you constantly create mental pictures of your life in your mind's eye. This means if the movie is negative, it causes a feeling of


You can use Hypnotherapy and Neuro Linguistic Programming to help program your subconscious mind. This allows you to quickly and easily remove those stress producing mental images. These

techniques also allow you to exchange them for calming mental pictures that allow you to relax.

This results in relaxation and pleasure, eliminating the stress that can trigger your oral urges and compulsions for a cigarette.

By eliminating this tension, you won’t experience the compulsion to reach for a cigarette or need to substitute food in their place. This allows you to quit smoking without gaining weight.

Part 2 counters the conditioned response to reach for a cigarette when exposed to different activities and locations.

In the earlier example you learned how smoking becomes subconsciously associated with these other activities and environments. These activities and environments trigger an image of a cigarette,

and your urge to light-up.

Hypnosis and Neuro Linguistic Programming techniques to quit smoking can quickly eliminate your conditioned responses. This will allow your subconscious to lose your cravings for cigarettes and

compulsion to smoke.

As a matter of fact, using hypnotherapy and Neuro Linguistic Programming techniques to quit smoking you can even get a compulsion to reach for a glass of water and reject the idea of smoking
