Meditation can help smokers smoke less.

Assured Effects Hypnotherapy responds to a report in the Health Day News published last week which stated “Learning a type of meditation technique might make it easier for smokers to cut down, at least on a short-term basis”

Although the report at face value seems good news it is based on a trial group of just 5 subjects.

Andy Cox, director of Assured Effects Hypnotherapy in Bournemouth and London, commented “Whilst it is good to cut down on smoking, stopping smoking for good surely has to be preferable. 70% of smokers in the UK want to stop smoking. And three quarters of all smokers have tried to give up at some point in the past.”

“Hypnotherapy is a very successful way to stop smoking. Smokers often believe that they are addicted to nicotine. The physical addiction to nicotine however is minimal and it is in fact the psychological habit which smokers are addicted to. Hypnotherapy overcomes the psychological addiction by using the power of your subconscious mind to change your thoughts process on smoking. Hypnosis allows the habit of being a smoker to be replaced with the habit of being a non-smoker in a single session.”
