Using Hypnosis to Cope with Nicotine Withdrawal

If you choose to quit cigarette smoking, the reality of the situation is that you will go through some form of nicotine withdrawal. It can’t be helped. Nicotine is an addictive substance.

Nicotine withdrawal is actually a group of symptoms that occur within the first few weeks of decreasing or quitting the intake of nicotine altogether. The most documented symptoms include anger, anxiety, cravings, depression, hunger, impatience, interrupted sleep, irritability, lack of concentration, restlessness, and weight gain. However, there are many other forms withdrawal symptoms can take as well. The strongest symptoms usually occur in the first few days and begin to lessen over a period of two to four weeks.

But here’s the good news. Hypnosis may actually help to alleviate these withdrawal symptoms. As a matter of fact, many individuals come out of hypnosis thoroughly and permanently satisfied on every level that they will never light up another cigarette again.

However, hypnosis cannot make you do anything that you don’t want to do. The most important factor is that you have a strong commitment to quit. You really have to want it.

Habits reside in the subconscious will power alone is not always effective. Since hypnosis addresses the subconscious, here’s what it can do for you:

1. remove patterns of habit

2. lower or eliminate the craving for nicotine

3. offer healthy methods in relaxation for stress reduction

4. relieve or eliminate additional withdrawal symptoms

5. reinforce a sense of wellbeing and success

The bottom line is that hypnosis can be a powerful aid in helping you achieve your goal of becoming a non-smoker. It is safe, effective, has no side effects, can help restore your health, and keep the money you used to spend on cigarettes in your pocket!
