Quit smoking naturally and safely
Target the reasons why you smoke
Free yourself from addiction: regain control of your life
Can you afford not to quit smoking?
Experts estimate that 1 in 2 people who smoke across their lifetime will die from a smoking-related disease. In 2011, tobacco use caused more than 18,800 Australian deaths. These deaths could have been prevented. Quitting smoking reduces your risk of lung cancer, stroke and heart attack (source: Better Health Channel).
The cost to your health
Smoking causes a range of serious and life-threatening diseases including:
- Cancer, heart disease and stroke
- Emphysema and chronic bronchitis
- Impaired respiratory and lung function
- Erectile dysfunction (ED)
- Narrowing of the leg arteries
- Eye diseases
- Complications during and after surgery
- Problems during pregnancy and childbirth.
Smoking is also a risk factor associated with a number of health problems including breast cancer, erectile dysfunction and Type 2 diabetes.
The cost to your bank balance
The average packet-a-day smoker spends more than $200 per week on cigarettes (source: ABC News). That’s over $10,000 a year. Wouldn’t you rather put that money to better use?
The cost to your loved ones
There is a reason smoking is banned in so many places. Smoking harms those around you. Day-to-day your smoke affects the people closest to you. Your loved ones are also affected by the impact that smoking has on your health and your life.
The cost to you
That people still smoke today is evidence of the old adage that knowledge in itself is not sufficient enough to create change. Knowing smoking is bad for your health, that it harms you and your loved ones, that it is expensive, may not be enough on its own to make you stop smoking.
People smoke for many different reasons. Maybe it’s something you enjoy, something you associate with taking a break, stress relief, socialising, a hot cup of coffee or a good meal.
People want to quit smoking a variety of different reasons. Maybe you or your loved ones don’t like the smell, maybe you want greater fitness and lung capacity, maybe it’s stopping you from living your life the way you want.
Deciding to stop smoking can be frightening but also liberating. It’s about weighing up the costs and benefits and deciding what is most important to you. Many people try to stop smoking and can’t. That’s where I come in.
How I help you stop smoking
Together we will explore your specific motivations for smoking. What are your individual smoking habits (smoking is not a single ‘addiction’ or habit, but a series of smaller habits)? What does smoking and being ‘a smoker mean’ for you? What are your triggers for smoking? How can you get your wants and needs met without smoking?
We will tap into your core strengths, shift your underlying beliefs and assumptions (for instance, that you ‘can’t’ stop smoking, that quitting will be ‘hard’), and refocus your attention on success. I will support you through the process and work with you to make changes that last.
How does hypnosis work?
Hypnosis is a highly focused state in which you can show greater responsiveness to suggestion. Using hypnotherapy we can target the reasons why you smoke, and help you make changes naturally, safely, and without the need for drugs or patches.
