Quit smoking Australian statisticsSmoking rates have been steadily declining in Australia since cigarette advertising was restricted, and anti-smoking campaigns began to take effect. However, the rate of adult smokers is still around 15%. Whilst many people have become more health conscious in recent years, and awareness around the risks of smoking has increased, people who have been smoking for longest tend to have the most difficult time quitting.  And now we have a new problem with the introduction of vaping, which is particularly a problem for young people!

Whether you began smoking many years ago as a young adult, or only took it up as a ‘social’ habit recently, smoking is so insidious a habit that it can be difficult for people to break. Whilst many people turn to fixes such as nicotine patches and e-cigarettes or vaping, the rate of success is incredibly low and vaping also has major health implications. This is because the reasons for smoking go well beyond the simple addiction to nicotine. Deeply ingrained behaviours and habits are difficult to ‘kick’ without investigating and addressing these behaviours.

A study done by New Scientist magazine found that hypnotherapy increased the chances of quitting from just 6% (using willpower alone) to 60%. In fact, hypnotherapy was more successful than nicotine replacement therapies, whose success rates were as low as 10%!

Smoking Risks

We are all aware of the dangers of smoking, and yet many of us have a typical ‘it won’t happen to me’ attitude towards the cancers and various other diseases associated with smoking. For those who have been smoking since adolescence or early adulthood, the idea of breaking such an ingrained habit is almost impossible to imagine. 

Stop Smoking Hypnosis Gold Coast, cigarette broken in halfDid you know that, beyond cancer, smoking is a leading cause for the following?

  • Heart attack
  • Stroke
  • Lung disease
  • Bone fractures
  • Cataracts
  • Pneumonia

Whilst disease is a major downside to smoking, it can also result in financial stress and unpleasant side-effects such as accelerated aging of the skin and discolouration of the teeth. In fact, the ageing effects of smoking have been used in Australian advertising campaigns to impede smoking amongst younger users by appealing to their sense of vanity.

Personalised Stop Smoking Hypnosis Program

Here at Integrated Health Specialists we have a well-established Stop Smoking Hypnosis Program, that is tailored to suit your individual needs,  and explore your personal reasons for difficulties in breaking the habit.

Our hypnotherapy program has been developed by our qualified Psychologist and Hypnotherapist with over 30 years experience.  We understand the psychological components of addictions, and the difficulties involved with overcoming habits such as smoking. Little do many smokers realise just how important smoking is, in their daily lives, and how they use smoking as a coping strategy to overcome other problems. Stopping for a cigarette is a habit which many people develop in order to break up the day, manage or avoid stressful situations, or simply to relax and ‘unwind’ whilst having a drink with friends. Even for those who start out as ‘social smokers’, smoking can quickly become an integral and almost essential part of their day.

Hypnotherapy is a safe and effective process, which goes beyond the superficial reasons for smoking, to uncover your unconscious beliefs and behaviours which make it difficult to break the habit. If you have been struggling to quit smoking, and have found other methods ineffective, our Stop Smoking Hypnosis Program may be the treatment you’ve been searching for!

There are 4 steps involved in our program:

1. Explore the reasons for wanting to quit, and make sure that you really do want to give up smoking.

2. Identify your personal obstacles in quitting, and what your ‘secondary gains’ are that keep you smoking.

3. Schedule 3 hypnotherapy sessions about 1 week apart.

4. A personalised hypnosis recording will be prepared for you to take home after the third session for maintenance.

At Integrated Health Specialists, our Stop Smoking Hypnosis Program on the Gold Coast has helped countless people to finally quit smoking!
