The top two reasons why people smoke .. And why they should stop smoking!

The Top Two reasons why people smoke as heard in my hypnotherapy practices in Suffolk and Essex and why they should stop:

1: Smoking for comfort

People believe that smoking relieves stress and anxiety and relaxes them while giving them a stimulation. There are many other healthier and better ways to achieve the same end.

After all if I told you that I was giving you a tube to suck filled with 4000 deadly poisons, tars that would sit in your lungs, plus smoke that would impact your ability to breathe and if I also said that you had a one in three chance of dying horribly from smoking it – would you take that chance?

2: Because smoking is glamorous and sociable

It is illegal in the UK to smoke in certain areas and this is because we now know that theorising in tobacco affect not just you but anyone near you that is also other adults, children and even pets. Smoking is injurious to health and is less socially acceptable. Sadly smokers also smell horrible to non smokers both breath and o their clothes and hair. Many people cite smoking as a reason to not date smokers. Hollywood stars were paid a kind of product placement fee in the Golden Age of Cinema to smoke and many of them subsequently died of cancer related to smoking.

Hypnosis is THE most tried and tested and successful way to quit smoking for good and it isn’t necessary to gain weight – many of the drivers for overeating and smoking are the same. So if you want to get fit and healthy and stop relying on using food and smoking or other substances or alcohol as tranquillisers then talk to me to see how hypnotism can teach you the tools to address all the reasons like stress anxiety and more and boost you self confidence too. If you are a sports person I also throw in some coaching!

It is a dangerous habit as we now know that costs in terms of health and an average of £2,500 a year for a habit that kills. It is a habit you learned and you can unlearn it and replace all the reasons you smoked with healthier and even more interesting alternatives..

Stop playing Russian Roulette with a three chambered gun and see how this will even save you money at an average of £2,500 a year.

How to stop Smoking with hypnosis

This months BLOG from Graham Howes Hypnotherapy – Howe to stop smoking.


Whether you’re a teen smoker or a lifetime pack-a-day smoker, quitting can be tough. But with the right game plan tailored to your needs, you can replace your smoking habits, manage your cravings, and join the millions of people who have kicked the habit for good.


Managing unpleasant feelings such as stress, depression, loneliness, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common reasons why adults smoke. When you have a bad day, it can seem like cigarettes are your only friend. Smoking can temporarily make feelings such as sadness, stress, anxiety, depression, and boredom evaporate into thin air. As much comfort as cigarettes provide, though, it’s important to remember that there are healthier (and more effective) ways to keep unpleasant feelings in check. These may include exercising, meditating, using sensory relaxation strategies, and practicing simple breathing exercises.

For many people, an important aspect of quitting smoking is to find alternate ways to handle these difficult feelings without smoking. Even when cigarettes are no longer a part of your life, the painful and unpleasant feelings that may have prompted you to smoke in the past will still remain. So, it’s worth spending some time thinking about the different ways you intend to deal with stressful situations and the daily irritations that would normally have you reaching for a cigarette.

Hypnosis to Stop Smoking

A popular option that has produced good results. Forget anything you may have seen from stage hypnotists, hypnosis works by getting you into a deeply relaxed state where you are open to suggestions that strengthen your resolve to quit smoking and increase your negative feelings toward cigarettes.

A Lancet study of one million Women shows that if you stop smoking before you are 30 – your chances of dying of smoking related disease are small. Stop at 40 and you lose a year of your life. Beyond that you lose 10 years of your life. Actually other studies show you have a one in three chance of dying if you smoke.
