Can Hypnosis Be Used to Quit Smoking
When you are determined to quit smoking, you are ready to fight it any way you know just to quit it.
You might have already tried to stop smoking before but it wasn’t so successful. And then you’ve found out how people use hypnosis to quit smoking.
At first, many people don’t even consider it thinking it’s some sort of a scam, and on the other hand, many people get worried and are unsure if it’s a healthy way to deal with something serious such as addiction.
We all know what are the dangerous risks of smoking, but still many people do it on daily basis. Deciding to quit smoking, especially after a long time can be really hard. If nicotine chewing gums or any other ways of quitting didn’t work out for you – there is still a hope. Maybe hypnosis will do its trick and help you quit smoking.
How Is Hypnosis Related To help you Quit Smoking?
If you don’t know much about hypnotherapy or hypnosis, I’d recommend you to do your research before even thinking about quitting smoking with hypnosis.
Smoking is one of the top rated dangerous addictions, which is more of a bad habit. Hypnotherapy with the help of hypnosis is able to put a person in the inducted trance-state where the person is very relaxed. When a person is in that state of relaxation, his conscious mind is suppressed while subconscious mind is revealed.
All the bad habits, fears, phobias are part of human’s subconscious. It’s hard to get rid of them since our conscious mind is suppressing those bad habits and feelings deep down our subconscious.
Thanks to the hypnosis, people are able to reveal our subconscious and deal with the habits, fears, phobias this way when it’s hard to do it any other way.
Addiction is clever. No matter how strong you decide to quit smoking – once you’re at your lowest point you’ll start thinking that taking just one cigarette is okay and there you go again into the circles.
That’s the reason many people can’t fight or quit smoking, while on the other hand there has been a lot of success using hypnosis to quit smoking.

What is The Process of Using Hypnosis to Quit Smoking?
It all starts with the negative outcome of being a smoker.
Of course, everyone already knows that smoking can kill you or that you can get lungs cancer because of it. Still, it’s hard to quit smoking on your own even when you know what the risk is if you don’t quit it.
That’s why the same negative outcome of smoking is used during hypnosis since it won’t only reach our conscious mind, but subconscious mind too.
Also, it’s important for a person to know the reasons he wants to quit smoking. Having goals will keep you motivated and will help you not to smoke one since all your hard work will be in vain.
There is a Spiegel method which is commonly used when using hypnosis to quit smoking.
It focuses on one of the three ideas:
- Smoking poisons the body
- You need your body to live
- You should respect your body
That way, a hypnotherapist teaches smokers how to use self-hypnosis to their advantage whenever they get the feeling to smoke a cigarette.
During the process, a patient is usually asked to image the worst outcomes of smoking. A hypnotherapist will suggest things such as the cigarette smoke smells like a truck exhaust which is related to unpleasant outcomes.
Does it Actually Work?
Hypnosis won’t work for everyone. But make sure you understand that hypnosis won’t make you quit smoking right away.
There is a research done that says 1 out of 4 people won’t be able to get hypnotized. Also, other 3 people who are able to get hypnotized successfully won’t experience the same intensity level which means different results.
It varies from person to person, and nobody can say guarantee if it will work. The best way to stop smoking would be to combine different techniques with a determinate goal to quit smoking.
Along with the hypnosis, you should be using different techniques as well for the best outcome possible.
There are still people who have quit smoking many years ago but they still say they get the feeling to have a cigarette when having a coffee. The reason is simple. They’ve decided to quit smoking on a conscious level and they did it on a conscious level. However, they haven’t get rid of it in the subconscious mind and that’s why they get craving feeling for a cigarette.

Are There Any Side Effects?
There are not any side effects of using hypnosis to quit smoking.
As I have mentioned before, hypnosis won’t make you quit smoking right away. However, after a few sessions, you will slowly start to lose the feelings of addiction.
You will slowly start losing the feeling that tells you to smoke one when having a coffee, or one before the bed to get relaxed.
It’s all about the state of mind and that’s what hypnotherapy is there for.
As there are no side effects of using hypnosis, there are some side effects of quitting smoking in general. Your body starts changing immediately after you quit smoking, but you don’t feel it right away.
You won’t feel how your body changes back to normal. You will rather feel side effects of quitting to smoke. You will start craving for a cigarette, probably lose some sleep because you won’t be able to relax before bed as you used to, will experience mood swings and so on.
These are just temporary side effects of quitting smoking which isn’t related to hypnosis and everyone who quits smoking no matter which way will experience it.
If you quit before you are 50, you cut the chance of dying in the next 15 years in a half.
In my opinion, hypnosis is simple and everyone should at least give it a try. There are no actual side effects, which means it can only be a win situation for you.
Hypnosis is done by a licensed hypnotherapist, and it is nothing to be afraid of.
In order for Hypnosis to be effective, you must be 100% committed to the process. At the end of the day, you have to be responsible for your own actions don’t you? If you go into this not being 100% committed, I assure you hypnotherapy will NOT work for you. You’re just wasting your time and money, and our time. We aren’t in this just for the money. We’re in this to see that you’re successful in what ever bad habit or issue you want to change. It makes us very happy when you succeed. The money is the byproduct.

Although feel free to mix techniques along with the hypnosis, as hypnosis won’t make you stop smoking immediately, and it will slowly change your subconscious habit.
Which, in my opinion, is always better in a long run than quitting to smoke at the conscious level as the cravings might appear even many years after.
