Whether you consider yourself a social smoker or a heavy smoker, the thought of quitting can be daunting. While it certainly can be tough, it is the absolute best thing you can do for your health.

When you have made the decision to stop smoking it is completely natural to have some initial fears. Some of the most common fears include:

Before you try to quit smoking it often helps to have a solid reason or goal in mind; you may want to quit because you are trying to have a baby or because you've promised your other half you'll quit, it may simply be because you want to be healthier. Whatever the reason, try writing it down and pin it up somewhere you can see it every day.

Once you have made the commitment to quit smoking, it's time to find some support. Seeing your GP is a great first step, they can talk you through the various treatments including nicotine replacement therapy (NRT), support groups and tips to change your behaviour.

A big part of quitting smoking is letting go of the smoking routine you once had and looking at cigarettes differently. Hypnotherapy is fast becoming one of the most popular forms of treatment to help do this.

If you are considering hypnotherapy to quit smoking the first step is to make sure you are choosing to quit for yourself. Hypnotherapy is most effective when you really want to quit - if you are doing it because you think you 'should' or because a friend or family member is pushing you, you may not get the results you want.

Hypnotherapy works by putting you in a deep, relaxed state where your mind is more open to suggestion. At this point your hypnotherapist Ricky will look to change your thought patterns by making suggestions such as 'I do not want a cigarette' or 'I am repelled by the smell of cigarette smoke'. For many people, just one session is enough to quit smoking however some may benefit from a follow-up session.

Some people find hypnotherapy alone is enough to break the habit, while others prefer to combine it with NRT or medication to tackle both the physical and mental addiction together. By exploring all the avenues you should find a suitable treatment that will help you quit smoking for good.
