STOP SMOKING THE EASY WAY
Stop Smoking no cravings no willpower no weight gain
Let hypnosis do the work for you.
Hypnosis works by dealing with smoking where it happens - in your mind. Stopping smoking is psychological. There is actually very little physical addiction to smoking, stopping is all about attitude and belief. Hypnosis works on your unconscious to remove the reason you need to smoke so that you can stop easily and immediately with no cravings, no willpower, no weight gain. Every time you smoke another twenty cigarettes you take five hours off your life.
Wellington Hypnosis makes it easy to stop smoking.
Can I really give up?
Yes, you can.
Wellington Hypnosis smokers mostly give up for ever after one session. Each person is different in terms of how long they have smoked, how many they smoke a day and why they smoke. That is why there are different stop smoking plans. But with hypnosis most stop immediately and never think of a cigarette again.
A few ex-smokers start getting antsy after some weeks and need a second session.
But in general most are able to stop permanently and with no cravings or weight gain.

If I can do it, you can stop too.
How much does it cost?
Wellington Hypnosis lets you choose the plan that suits you best. Some people just need a little push, others need a bit more support.

Why is it so hard to stop?
Stopping smoking is all about unconscious thoughts and feelings. Most smokers started in their early or late teens, at a time when they were changing from a child to an adult, when they formed all sorts of new ideas about who they were and what they can and can't do. Most teenagers felt smoking helped them fit in, to be a rebel, to look cool, and they formed powerful connections between cigarettes and feeling good.
When you succeed at something, you make a link between what you are doing and how you are feeling. The result is an automatic link, an unconscious association, a belief that doing one thing means doing the other. And if you form the belief that you need to smoke to feel good, then you have a smoking problem. And then part of you believes that giving up cigarettes means giving up that ability as well. The link is not obvious to the smoker, but that is why they keep doing it.
That is why smoking is so hard to give up. Your own unconscious fights desperately against stopping in order to not be friendless, to not look like a dork again. That is what cravings are, an unconscious attempt to get you to start again so that you will get back those feelings you need. That is also why some smokers can just stop and start as they like - they didn't form the automatic associations. Smoking is all about beliefs. Hypnosis works to remove these, to break the associations.
Once the beliefs are gone so are the cravings. That is why hypnosis is effective.
How does Hypnotherapy work?
People who are can't quit cigarettes are not weak, or lacking in character, or natural addicts.
"The problem is in your head, not in the cigarette. "
You can go 'cold turkey' - some do. You can grit your teeth, go live in a tent somewhere without smokes and after a week or so you are no longer smoking. But as soon as you get back to your familiar surroundings all the triggers are there waiting. As soon as you hit the first bit of normal stress your own mind will betray you. If you believe that you cannot handle stress without a cigarette then the pressure will build until you take one. Going cold turkey gets rid of the physical addiction, but it does nothing about the mental associations of cigarettes.
The physical effects are not what keeps you smoking. After two days all the nicotine is gone from your body. Totally gone. If you start again it is not because you need the nicotine. It is because some part of you believes that you cannot function without cigarettes and that part actually doesn't want you to stop.
It is your own mental beliefs that are the problem. Hypnosis changes that.
The STOP SMOKING method
Wellington Hypnosis stop smoking method addresses three specific areas to stop smoking. There is the physical addiction, clearing false ideas about smoking, and the situations that act as triggers to remind you to light up.
The Physical Habit
The physical addiction of nicotine is actually quite mild. Smokers often have convinced themselves about how addictive tobacco is and how difficult it will be to give up. Smoking is actually quite difficult to get addicted to. Nobody gets addicted from the first cigarette. People who have smoked sixty a day for forty years can give up instantly. They could not do that if cigarettes were physically addictive. Therefore the first part of the therapy is aimed at correcting the client's ideas about how easy it is give up, and giving the client post hypnotic instructions about how they will feel after they throw away their cigarettes.
This is reinforced by teaching a replacement behaviour. Psychology studies show if an existing behaviour is associated with a new behaviour, the old behaviour rapidly goes into extinction, and the desire to do that behaviour fades away as well. So this part of the treatment consists of teaching you a new behaviour to use any time the desire to smoke occurs. This new behaviour gives you something to do with your hands, it takes the place of the cigarette until the link between stress and reaching for a cigarette is broken, and then the link fades away with disuse.
The second part of the therapy focuses on the role that smoking plays in your life. Smokers often are convinced that they cannot relax without a puff, or that their best ideas only come when smoking, and other self justifying beliefs. In extreme cases clients believe that smoking defines who they are, and that stopping smoking somehow will diminish them. Direct hypnosis suggestions and metaphors deal with these quickly.
For the long term smoker, all sorts of situations have become associated with smoking. Most smokers tell themselves that they enjoy a cigarette after a meal, with a drink, to have a break. These are all highly charged situations and the smoker has created powerful conditioned responses to these.
Hypnosis breaks mental associations with meals, breaks, coffee, driving - whatever it is that the ex-smoker associates with cigarettes.
By using this three-part approach hypnosis beats smoking for ever.

What Wellington Hypnosis Smokers say
Thought I would drop you a quick line to let you know that I am now 12 weeks not smoking.
In this time I have been through some fairly traumatic circumstances and have succumbed to the odd cigarette, however I have not bought any and now I am climbing up to the ridgeline in the hills behind where I live with relative ease.
Thank you for your help, I am ever so grateful.
Vanessa, Upper Hutt
Thank you so much for what you helped me with on Wednesday. No cravings to smoke at all, and more importantly have put steps in place to deal with my other issues.
As for the smoking, not had a smoke since we last met. Had a few triggers, but quickly got rid of them quickly. After our last session where you dealt with the root of my issues, I am totally amazed how quick it has been to stop. All I can say is thank you.
Just to let you now how it has been going: pretty well! It's been 4 weeks this Sunday since our appointment and it's been surprising the results. From just after the appointment there has been no angsty desire for a packet and wondering how I'm going to get by for the day. I have more time as well! Instead of procrastinating with cigarettes I'm doing more productive things like reading. Thanks for your help.
Just a quick note to let you know that I am feeling wonderful!! Not a cigarette in sight.... Peter is doing excellent too and he very much enjoyed his session with you as I did. It is early days but we are never ever going to go back to that smoking again yuk yuk yuk MANY THANKS TO YOU.
I am eternally grateful to you that I don’t feel the need or want to smoke on a daily basis. I never thought that it could be this easy.
As of last Tuesday I quit smoking, The session didn’t work on its own for me I had to mentally prepare myself in the last few weeks to quit. But its been 9 days since my last smoke and the hypnosis has definitely helped to get me to quit because I now know why I smoked. Craig, Riverstone Terraces.
