FREE Hypnosis for Smoking Cessation

Imagine a disease that causes more annual premature deaths than HIV, illegal drug use, alcohol use, motor vehicle injuries, suicides and murders combined. Imagine that this disease robs each of its sufferers of an average of seven years of life, with their final years often characterized as painfully debilitating.

The annual American health care costs of this condition reach over $50 billion. The disease is responsible for more than 7% of all deaths, throughout the world. Within about a decade, this same estimate will likely increase to nearly 18% of worldwide deaths. Although it is not contagious, an average of over 3,000 American children and non-afflicted adults, who surround themselves by the afflicted, will consequently experience disease and premature death, each year.

The devastating "disease," of course, is Nicotine Dependence. This year, the American Cancer Society’s Great American Smokeout is scheduled for November 15th. The annual event encourages smokers to quit for a day in the hope they may quit for good. Over 80% of smokers actually admit that they do desire to be smoke-free.

Despite smoking’s horrendous health effects, a practically free, curative treatment has existed for many years. It has been demonstrated that the treatment is generally effective for more than 30% of those who embrace it. In fact, since 1992, according to New Scientist, it has been known that "Hypnosis is the most effective way of giving up smoking." Its quote was based upon a study cited within the Journal of Applied Psychology, earlier that same year. These findings appear to hold true, even in today's healthcare environment that demonstrates an overemphasis upon pharmacological approaches.

As a Pennsylvania psychologist and certified hypnotherapist, I advocate the use of clinical hypnosis for smoking cessation, one of the least expensive and most effective approaches to becoming smoke-free. Since the American Medical Association approved the use of clinical hypnosis in the 1950's, hundreds of thousands of people have found hypnosis to be an effective way to stop smoking, lose weight, and otherwise improve their lives.

Hi Jerry,
Yes - smoking is one of the most insidious and nasty problems around. Having watched a parent and grandparents die of smoking related illneses it is something no sane person would do.

One of the saddest things is seeing youngsters thinking it's oh so 'cool' to smoke. They wouldn't think it cool if they visited older people coughing their lungs up with emphysema or cancer, or stuck in wheel chairs after their legs have been amputated due to Peripheral Vascular Disease tht smoking causes.

For those who would like to do hypnosis, which is one of the best and most cost effective way to quit, they may be interested in the DIY approach. There are free hypnosis scripts which include a 5 sessions of Quit Smoking scripts available at http://www.hypnosisonline.com.au.

Keep up the good work!

I think it is also important to address the issues as to why a person smokes. There are many times a smoker will say they don't know why they lit up because they didn't really want it anyway. Yet, time and time again, the smoker lights up.

How many health care professionals smoke? They are exposed to these "consequences of smoking" day in and day out and yet still smoke. Addiction comes in many forms. Yes, nicotine is an addictive substance but I think it is very important to address WHY a person is smoking as well as the addiction to the drug itself.

Self-help is a positive step in achieving ones goals but I truly believe that obtaining the proper professional support ~ the one on one ~ that will help ensure
