What is your vice?

Smoking with an early morning coffee, late night snacking, too many beers or drugs, too much gambling: we all need to enjoy life, but what happens when it gets out of control?

Habits and addictions can seriously harm our well-being if they get out of control.

Hypnosis is the most effective way to stop smoking.

The National Council for Hypnotherapy recently circulated information about new research into the effectiveness of hypnotherapy as a way of stopping smoking.

To investigate the most effective method of stopping smoking, the University of Iowa’s Frank Schmidt along with research student Chockalingham Viswesvaran carried out a meta-analysis, using the results of more than 600 studies, with a total of nearly 72,000 people. The results included 48 studies of hypnosis covering 6000 smokers, and were published in the Journal of Applied Psychology. They clearly showed that hypnosis was three times more effective than nicotine replacement therapy.

More money

The average cost of a 20-pack of cigarettes is £9.91. If a person is smoking 20 cigarettes a day for 10 years, they

will have spent over £35,000. Quitting smoking could mean you are nearly £300.00 richer every month.

Stop smoking timeline:

The time since the last cigarette and how it affects the body:

  • 20 minutes: Blood pressure and heart rate return to normal.

  • 12 hours: Carbon monoxide levels drop back to normal.

  • 24 hours: The body starts to clear out the mucus build-

    up in the lungs.

  • 72 hours: Breathing becomes easier and energy levels

    increase.

  • 1 month: Appearance of the skin improves.

  • 3 to 9 months: Lung function can improve by up to 10

    per cent.

  • 1 year: Risk of suffering from a heart attack falls to about

    half of that of a smoker.

  • 10 years: Risk of developing lung cancer falls to about

    half of that of a smoker.

  • 15 years: Risk of suffering heart attack falls to that of a

    non-smoker.

Derek offers support to overcome the initial withdrawal symptoms and also to replace the addiction with healthier habits that are more workable for you.
Addiction is a habit, it can seem that you need that cigarette, that drink, those drugs, that food or to gamble. This is an illusion of thought – it does not mean you cannot change it.

The required number of sessions vary depending on the complexity of the habit. Derek offers support during and after your sessions and will maintain support for as long as necessary.
