Stop Smoking Now!
My Stop Smoking programme consists of a detailed phone consultation of 20-30 minutes (which does not include hypnotherapy) followed by one intensive session of hypnotherapy plus other therapies of approximately 60-90 mins.
The techniques I use will be determined by the information you share during the consultation as you begin your stop smoking journey.
At that consultation you will be asked about when, where, why, how you smoke, any triggers for smoking and about your motivation to become a successful non-smoker.
I will send you the consent forms etc by email and request that you complete these and email back.
Payment by bank transfer is made prior to the appointment. Please read my Terms and Conditions.
You will be expected to smoke your last cigarette the night before your appointment and to dispose of all but one of your cigarettes, together with any smoking paraphernalia such as ashtrays and lighters.
Why is it important to stop smoking?
Well, years ago it was the fashion to smoke - every film star in Hollywood smoked so all their fans did too! There were no real concerns about how smoking might affect your health - you could even buy menthol cigarettes so they couldn't possibly be harmful, could they?!!
It was even believed that smoking helped you (usually ladies) to stay slim and that it gave you an air of sophistication.
Many young people took their first drag of a cigarette to fit in with their mates...
Nowadays of course we know that smoking is harmful; we know that cigarettes are packed full of dangerous chemicals:
Of the 7000+ chemicals in cigarette smoke, at least 250 are known to be harmful, including hydrogen cyanide, carbon monoxide, ammonia, arsenic and cadmium. You are literally putting deadly chemicals in your body.
Tobacco companies are no longer allowed to advertise on tv and in magazines and there have been big anti-smoking campaigns over the years highlighting the dangers - dangers such as lung and mouth cancer, amputation as a result of poor circulation, impotency, not to mention bad teeth, smelly hair, breath and clothes.
So what's stopping you from being a non-smoker?
You were not born a smoker, were you? It's a habit you have picked up and habits can be broken!
If you are struggling with the thought of the cost of this programme then consider this:
How much did you pay for your last holiday? Was it what you wanted - or what you could afford?
Now think about how many cigarettes you buy each week, and how that affects the rest of your life:
Buying a pack of cigarettes in the supermarket will cost you between £10-£13.50.
Well, if you are a 20 per day smoker you consume approximately 140 per week (give or take the cigs you give to your mates and the cigs they give to you) - even if you buy the £10 packs at around £10 per 20 that's £70 per week and £280 per month...
£3360+ PER YEAR!
(or £4536+ if you smoke the more expensive cigarettes)
AND CIGARETTES ARE ONLY LIKELY TO INCREASE IN PRICE
Now think about the holiday you could have with an extra £3-£4.5K per year...
NB At the consultation you will be asked why you are now looking for help to stop smoking; if you are doing it because your partner/parent/friend is the motivator it is unlikely that I will take you on as a client. You have to really and truly want it for yourself.
YOU WERE NOT BORN A SMOKER SO STOP SMOKING NOW!
