When they make the decision to quit smoking, most smokers turn to patches or nicotine gum. The snag is that these aren’t particularly effective. Partly because you’re still getting an intake of nicotine.
There are other methods to quit smoking that don’t involve the use of patches, gum or drugs. One of the most effective of these is using hypnosis to quit smoking.
It’s been shown that hypnosis has a success rate of around two people out of every three who use it. That’s a lot more success than near enough any other method.
The good news is that not only is hypnosis more effective but it’s cheaper than most of the alternative methods (apart from will power of course, but that has the lowest success rate). Patches seem to be priced at around the same cost as your daily ration of cigarettes. A hypnosis course to quit smoking will likely only cost you about a week or two’s worth of your regular cigarette intake. So providing you manage to quit for at least two weeks, you’ll be in pocket.
You may be asking what happens to the one person in three who doesn’t manage to use hypnosis to quit smoking. Why didn’t it work for them?
There are a lot of possible reasons. One of the most common is if they were the only person in their group of friends who tried to give up. It’s difficult to go against the crowd, so that person needs to either be very strong willed or change the group they mix with. Otherwise they don’t stand much chance of being able to give up smoking.
