Does Hypnotherapy Stop Smoking Give The Wrong Impression?

September 17th, 2009 by admin

Many people that are looking for solutions to their smoking problem think that they need to do some kind of therapy to overcome what may be a life long habit or addiction.  (And I use that word addiction with hesitation and that’s a topic for another post.)  So what happens is they seek out the help of a hypnotherapist to help them with hypnotherapy stop smoking.

Well, there is really no such thing as hypnotherapy when it comes to stopping smoking or other behavioral change.  And there really is no need whatsoever to seek out a hypnotherapist, whatever that is.  A consulting hypnotist is far more effective and is the proper term for the hypnotist that will help you stop smoking.  Therapy is the treatment of a disease or a disorder.   Smoking is not a disease, nor is it a disorder.  What it is, is a bad, sometimes nasty habit.  Hypnotherapy stop smoking has become a common term that really doesn’t accurately describe the process that takes place.  When you see a hypnotist to stop smoking, you will learn how to properly use your mind so that you will be able to control that aspect of yourself that has to do with smoking.  It is not a therapeutic session, it is more like being taught or trained.

So what is a habit?  A habit is something that you learned to do, usually intentionally.  And you were required, or you desired to do this behavior often.  So often that the part of you that is responsible for storing your habitual responses, (your subconscious mind), decided to accept that particular behavior into it’s storage facility.  Once that happens, it becomes unnecessary for you to consciously be aware of doing the behavior, or of triggering that behavior.  It has been set up with all the parameters necessary for that behavior to run on it’s own.

This is really important, so listen up.  When any behavior becomes a habit, it has been determined by your subconscious mind to be an important behavior.  Your subconscious made that determination mostly on the basis that you did that behavior so often that it must be important to you.  Since the subconscious deems that behavior important, it will continue that behavior even if consciously you decide to stop it.  You weren’t able to make something a habit just by saying or thinking that you wanted it to be a habit, so why should you think that you’d be able to stop that habit by just saying or thinking you want to stop it?

No, that just doesn’t work that way.  Our subconscious mind is set up to protect us.  That protective quality is hard wired into us, and any behavior we do repeatedly is identified as a protective measure.  And that habit will be continued until it is replaced by another opposing behavior.  Because you cannot have two opposite behaviors running as habits at the same exact time.

One way to reset and change habits is by repeatedly doing an opposite behavior to the habit that is in place.  Repeat that new behavior enough times and it soon becomes the habit of choice.

With hypnotherapy stop smoking, or hypnosis to quit smoking, you will be able to perform mental rehearsal as a non smoker many times in quick succession.  This will help make that new more desirable behavior into the opposing habit that will replace the smoking habit.  This is just one of the ways that hypnotherapy stop smoking works to help you become a non smoker.  But to make this process really powerful a good hypnotist will first work to align the subconscious mind with that most important attribute of the subconscious, the need to be protective.  And the way that’s done is a topic for another post.
