Your Personalized Quit Smoking and/or Weight Loss Hypnotherapy Program
Ditch those old habits that are holding you back!
Making the decision to quit smoking and/or get your weight under control is a complete life-changer, benefiting your mind, body, and wallet tremendously!
There are three individual parts to the addiction to smoking cigarettes or having eating habits that lead you to carrying too much weight. Two of the elements are mental, and only one part is physical.
Part A: YOU SMOKE / EAT FOR RELAXATION AND PLEASURE.
When you were an infant, and you got restless, your mother would put a nipple into your mouth to pacify you. You would get distracted, become calmer, and often go to sleep. That scenario repeated many times so that your unconscious mind was programmed: When something goes into your mouth, you get relaxation and pleasure.
Now that you are a grownup, if you feel anxious or tense, you crave something in your mouth for relaxation and pleasure - perhaps food or a cigarette!
Part B: SMOKING / EATING IS A CONDITIONED RESPONSE.
Remember Pavlov? He rang a bell every time that he fed his dogs. After a few repetitions, all he had to do was ring the bell, which would trigger the dogs to salivate.
When you associate smoking / eating with any other action, the other action will trigger cravings for a cigarette./ food and an urge to light up a cigarette / overeat. We call this a conditioned response.
For example, when you see someone else smoking, one may automatically get an urge to smoke when you see someone else smoking or eating something you love.
Here is precisely how this conditioned response gets programmed into your unconscious: If a person smokes a cigarette and simultaneously drinks a coffee, the mind takes a snapshot of the cigarette in hand and ties it to the cup of coffee. After that, every time the person has a coffee, his unconscious mind fills in the missing part of the picture. It flashes an image of a cigarette, and the smoker gets a craving for a cigarette. The same is true when we think about habitual eating—reaching for sugar and sweets after every meal, snacking between meals etc.
You may be unaware of the mental picture of your habit because it may only be at the unconscious level of mind. Just as you are unaware of what you see through your peripheral vision until something or someone draws your attention. But the image is there, creating a craving for a cigarette or food.
Part C: THERE IS A PHYSICAL ADDICTION, BUT . . .
I guarantee that the physical addiction to tobacco is the weakest part of the smoking addiction. Also, the human body needs food to provide energy and nutrition. However, people can feel addicted to food when they become dependent on certain types of foods. Any food can make a person feel addictive tendencies. Typically 90% of the addiction is the mental and emotional parts! (Parts A and B).
Let's kick these bad habits once and for all!
I am looking forward to working with you!
