The average person makes an effort to quit smoking between four to six times before they are successful. If you have tried patches, gum, prescriptions or willpower alone with no success, make your final attempt stick with stop smoking hypnosis.

Of all of the ways to quit smoking, hypnosis is literally the least complicated and has the best track record. If you are willing to consistently listen to and watch DVDs and CDs especially designed to curb your cravings to smoke, then quit smoking hypnosis will be successful for you.

Many smokers believe that they are unable to quit smoking because of their addiction to nicotine, but that simply is not true. Medical experts agree that after seven to ten days - even as soon as three days - all nicotine has been eliminated from the body, which leaves smokers to work with the more arduous and far reaching emotional and psychological addiction to smoking cigarettes.

There are various techniques to quit smoking, but just one method can address both the emotional compulsion and the cravings: quit smoking hypnotherapy. Many people who want to quit still end up asking themselves, "Why can't I simply stop smoking?"

The answer is clear to hypnotherapists. The part of you that will not let you quit smoking is the unconscious. You can’t change your unconscious by force of will or with a patch, prescription or gum. You require the correct kind of help.

To quit smoking, support is imperative, but a lot of people do not see that the best support comes from within their own unconscious. Hypnosis is the most effective way to guarantee that your complete psyche is working to help you stop smoking. That is because hypnosis provides a powerful method of communicating with the unconscious.

Quit smoking self hypnosis helps you get rid of the urge to smoke by removing the compulsion to light up. When the urge and compulsion to smoke are removed, quitting becomes a simple decision that you can make without difficulty. The best stop smoking self hypnosis programs are successful because they work to eliminate the most powerful components of the smoking addiction.

The first part of a successful stop smoking hypnosis program addresses the need to smoke for pleasure and relaxation. This precedent was actually founded when you were an infant. No doubt, when you were cranky, your parents put a bottle in your mouth. Then your attention got diverted; you relaxed and probably fell asleep. Cigarette smokers experience the same soothing effect from a cigarette.

With quit smoking hypnosis, your unconscious is reprogrammed to receive pleasure and relaxation by automatically trading stress-inducing thoughts with calming thoughts instead, all with the use of the very same triggers that previously made you tense. This makes the tension almost magically disappear. Further, the very fundamental nature of hypnosis is relaxation. So by listening to a calming hypnotherapy CD daily, anxiety levels will quickly diminish.

The second part of an effective stop smoking hypnosis program will help you deal with the habituation, or the "Habit." Habituation transpires when the unconscious forms an association between smoking and other behaviors, such as driving or watching TV. Perhaps the second that you turn on the television you are overwhelmed with a craving to smoke.

An effective stop smoking hypnosis CD or DVD will reprogram your unconscious associations so that watching TV, for example, actually makes you want to REJECT smoking! This is known as, no pun intended, extinguishing a conditioned response.

Here is a news flash! The physical addiction to nicotine is only about ten percent of the addiction. Ninety percent of the addiction to cigarettes is comprised of the emotional and mental components that we have looked at thus far. And as stated earlier in this article, medical experts agree that the body is clear of nicotine in as little as three days.

People who use Neuro-Linguistic Programming and quit smoking hypnosis CDs and DVDs find that when their smoking associations and dependence on cigarettes to relax have undergone reprogramming, the physical addiction is in fact such a tiny part of their smoking problem, that it has no effect on their capability to quit smoking without suffering from withdrawal.

Now, I must advise you that regardless of the unparalleled success that clients have had with stop smoking hypnosis and NLP CDs and DVDs, you must hold the desire to quit smoking prior to undertaking a program. And besides the desire to quit, you must make a sincere decision to quit. That means that you must be ready and willing to throw away your cigarettes.

Hypnosis CDs and DVDs cannot be used to force you to do something you don't wish to do, so no program can coerce you to give up smoking. But if you have the desire to quit smoking, and you make a decision to quit smoking, hypnosis will help you to remain relaxed and not experience cravings, tension or withdrawal symptoms. Let hypnosis and NLP give you the support you need.
