Without a doubt, your own will and determination to stop smoking are the best quit aids available to you. They are also mandatory requirements for successful, long term smoking cessation. With solid commitment in place, any quit aid of your choice will help. Without it, nothing will.

So, with that said, let's take a look at hypnosis as a tool to help you stop smoking.

What is Hypnosis and How Does it Work?

Hypnosis activates an altered state of consciousness in which a person is fully awake while being deeply relaxed and more susceptible to suggestion.

Exactly how hypnosis works isn’t known, but one thing is certain: people in a hypnotic trance can't be convinced to do things they wouldn’t normally do. They are in full control of their free will.

You might be surprised to learn that you probably experience a self-induced hypnotic trance at least once a day. Have you ever been driving your car only to suddenly realize you can't remember some of the trip? Do you sometimes "lose yourself" while reading a good book or watching a movie? Three-dimensional life fades away, and you're immersed in a different reality, often vividly complete with emotions and physical sensations.

That sense of disconnection from your present surroundings while awake and alert signals a hypnotic trance. Rather than being sleep-like, while under hypnosis, people are actually in a state of increased attentiveness, and suggestions offered can take root more easily.

Hypnosis as a Quit Smoking Aid

As a smoking cessation aid, hypnosis has one important benefit that other quit smoking tools aren't able to offer.

Because it uses the power of positive suggestion to help you stop smoking, it actually has the ability to help you develop and strengthen your will and determination to succeed. 

Most smokers start their quit programs on shaky legs. Nicotine addiction makes us think we are weak and unable to live happily without cigarettes.

Given time and a healthy attitude though, we can tip the scales in the other direction.

With every smoke free day completed, you are proving to yourself that quitting tobacco is possible. Add some hypnosis to your smoking cessation plan, and it will help you develop the attitude you need to succeed. Further, if you use hypnosis in conjunction with another quit aid, such as the nicotine patch, Zyban or Chantix, your chance of long term success is even higher.
