Smoking is one of the hardest, most challenging addictions you can try to get rid of. Yet quitting is highly beneficial for your health. Smoking has indeed devastating effects on the human body and serious repercussions that can’t be ignored. It amplifies cardiovascular risks, rheumatoid arthritis as well as lung disease, and many more heath conditions.
No matter the case, you are not to blame if therapies, patches, medicine, chewing gum, or even support groups haven’t helped you in your determination to shake that nasty habit. Don’t get discouraged. Don’t give up. The statistics on the effectiveness of hypnosis in helping smokers quit are positively outstanding.
There is, in our culture, a somber veil draped over the concept of hypnosis. What is hypnosis really about? How does it work?
First of all, the patient is not asleep. It’s merely an altered state of awareness, a trance in which the person is attentive to his/her surroundings, to the hypnotherapist’s voice and able to react to any situation accordingly. Clinical hypnosis at the Centre d’hypnose Paris is a technique that gives potent results when treating physical problems as well as psychological troubles. Hypnosis is, for instance, progressively used as a side effect-free alternative to medical sedation in dental surgery, to appease the patient, dull and erase the pain. It can treat weight issues, all types of addictions, depression and phobias effectively.
Hypnosis puts the patient in a state of relaxation that allows him/her to focus his/her attention, increasing the acuteness of the mind. Therefore it allows the person to assimilate the suggestions the hypnotherapist presents to the unconscious mind (such as quitting smoking) much faster.
While we might talk about the unconscious mind, the patient is not unconscious. It’s important to differentiate those two notions. While the depth of hypnosis will vary from one person to another, there is always that one constant. The patient is free to make his/her own choices and is always in command of his/her own will. As a matter of fact, numerous brain tests performed on hypnotized patients have shown a higher level of neurological activity than usual.
In order to quit smoking immediately after the session, the hypnotherapist creates vivid, powerful, unpleasant, repulsive images with the intent to create a connection in the patient’s mind between the cigarette and everything revolving around the act of smoking and its dire outcomes. For instance, a suggestion might be made that the simple smoke smell reminds that person of the smell of vomit, that the taste of smoke in the patient’s mouth reminds them of vomit residue. That the mere exposure to the smell of second hand smoking disturbs and grosses out.
At the Centre d’hypnose Paris, hypnosis is a fast, efficient method that dissuades patients to pursue their smoking habit. Indeed, it doesn’t have to be an arduous task. Hypnosis reminds the smokers of the toxic effects of smoking. How primordial it is to respect and take care of one’s body in order to live a fructuous life. It reminds them of the various health benefits ceasing to smoke has (for instance, lowering the dangers of dying at an early age and increasing the chances of living a longer, unhindered life). Giving up is simply not an option.
Nicotine is amongst the most injurious and legal drugs in world. The intake of nicotine is getting more common day by day via smoking and is harming not only its users but even the others who are closely associated with the smokers as passive smokers. It is important to be aware of the cruel fact that cigarettes are responsible for the death of about 4.9 million people around the world each year.
Despite of all these facts it is also important to consider that quitting smoking is not at all impossible. Although the strategy of quitting smoking is not that much easy but at last it is not impossible.
There are few steps that can surely help to quit smoking or can make the hard passage easy to follow.
The first step that is going to help in the long run is self realization. The user should realize that smoking is actually harming him internally and with each cigarette he is moving a step forward to his death. This self realization can be done via public health awareness campaigns and with the help of sufficient reading and research material to the addicted person.
Self Control and self determination:
After getting aware of the harmful effects of smoking you need to find out the reasons for which you smoke. You need to first get rid of all those problems and decide to control yourself in case if you once again come across those reasons. According to research excessive thinking and excessive leisure also play an important role in promoting smoking so one should avoid both these situations. For this we will suggest to find some interesting things to do to keep you busy.
Removal of all smoking related products from your home:
It is suggested to remove all smoking related accessories from your closure to make you comfortable without smoking and enable you to forget about smoking. It includes cigarette packs, lighters and match boxes etc.
Proper medication and Doctor Consultation:
Once you have decided to quit smoking then you should better consult a proper doctor or you may go through a proper rehabilitation centrer where the team is going to make your effort organized in every way. Please keep in mind that proper consultation and medication plays an important role in this quit process and also will make the way easy and comfortable.
Use of the Cigarette Substitutes:
It is also advisable to use the substitutes for cigarettes like chewing gum, use of mint, sunflower seeds, getting busy with the toothpicks. The logic behind this is very strong as all these are going to divert the attention of your mind particularly from smoking to some other related acts and thus you can quit smoking.
Caring about your family members:
Start caring about your family members and of course many of you already do, but just think a second before going to smoke that your family members are getting affected by this at the same time as being passive smokers.
The use of hypnosis has been successful to stop smoking with thousands of peopleand as a result, they can easily get rid of the smoking habit. Hypnosis not only helps you get rid of the smoking habit but also helps to eliminate the desire and feelings of craving for cigarettes. Usually the people are afraid of that they will experience withdrawal symptoms or gain weight when they quit smoking through hypnosis. Similarly there are related misconceptions of getting more nervous or uptight but actually the people have experience it to be a very different and effective way by all means and they are no more afraid of now adopting this method for quitting smoking.
According to a feedback which we have received from people at the “Centre d’hypnose Paris” who have adopted hypnosis to stop smoking that if they experienced withdrawal symptoms or not, they related for usually some minor symptoms. The withdrawal symptoms are manageable using the strategies given to them during the hypnotic session. It is also important to note that everybody is different and everybody has a different metabolism so it is quite possible that the two people going through the same process respond differently at the same time. We have examples which say that instead of being nervous and uptight; they discovered that they felt calmer and relaxed going through their daily activities.
The session for hypnosis is specially designed for boosting up the body against the use of cigarettes thus making the internal will of the person much stronger than ever. It does not involve the aversion therapy or something irritating like that. By the end of the session the patient starts feeling much better than ever. However the success of hypnosis is always dependent upon the strength and positive attitude of the patient for quitting smoking.
The session of hypnosis is specially introduced by a specific hypnotic induction. It involves a series of various steps and suggestions. The theme of hypnosis is still a mystery to understand for the people as they wonder how a state of unconsciousness leads to follow the given instructions and actions with a pre planned activities. However, the importance of hypnosis is regarded as a therapy for those who are aimed to quit smoking and patients are being helped a lot through this procedure.
Hypnosis does not work for everyone but for a lot of clients, the results are miraculous. Similarly the intensity of the success is also variable from person to person. Usually by the end of the hypnosis session, it appears that the session has permanently convinced the body, mind and emotions that they will never light up a cigarette again.
It is also important to clear this confusion in the mind of the patients that Hypnosis never makes to decide to quit smoking. It is merely a reinforcement effort when you already have decided and are struggling now to quit smoking. A hypnotist has no special power of coercion as no one can be hypnotized to do something that goes against his will or belief.
The logic of adopting hypnosis to quit smoking habit lies in saying that willpower cannot reach the subconscious but hypnosis can….and we know that habits are in subconscious. The Hypnosis is effective because it can reach our subconscious and we can feel the results immediately after the session.

Instead, your emotions will be strong and you will enjoy a sense of relief without any loss or pain.
All this is due to the effectiveness of hypnosis “Arrêter de fumer par hypnose”, and the way we use hypnosis in particularly to remove the feelings of deprivation. The best thing to know about hypnosis is that it removes the need, and the desire, to smoke permanently.
The subconscious mind work as a protecting shield that save us from different things, whether they are real or not. The subconscious mind always keeps those things on priorities that are able to deliver highest protection.
When someone becomes addicted, the addictive substance is treating the subconscious mind in a valuable manner in order to help the subconscious mind to save the person from concentrating on painful information and realities that are present in the conscious mind. The subconscious mind then uses the substance to neglect such information. The same phenomenon is also used by some activities like sex and gambling etc.
We offer a very useful method to treat addictions. First the individual is exposed to the information from which he/she is trying to get protection. After getting exposed, hypnosis works to eliminate the subconscious dependence. Once the dependence is eliminated the subconscious mind simply accepts that such substances and activities are harmful and will start building and providing effective suggestions to get rid of.
Hypnosis is found helpful for individuals addicted to substances like alcohol, drugs etc. The success of hypnotherapy depends on two factors : up to what extent the individual is responding to hypnosis, and the level of the willingness of the individual to take initiatives to get rid of the addiction.
A number of factors directly affect the effectiveness of the hypnosis, such as
This is of great importance as the individual his/her self has to find out whether they really want to stop it or not.
It is observed at the Cenre d’hypnose Paris that individuals usually turn to drinking or using drugs to cope with certain serious issues related to their everyday life or even emotional health. Therefore, to get rid of such a harmful activity one needs to get an alternative/substitute. With hypnosis, healthy substitutes are offered but if a person refuses to get any alternative he/she can never get a real world solution and will end up with empty hands. The use of drugs/alcohol must be substituted by a healthy activity, skill or a practice to handle a particular situation that once you used to handle with drugs.
The crucial point is the willingness of the patient/individual, that’s how much the patient’s commitment is to get rid of an addictive substance? Don’t believe that hypnosis is a painless and easy treatment as many people perceived that they just have to lay down on a bed or sofa for a while and will be hypnotized and they will get rid of using alcohol/drugs. In fact, you have to show your commitment and has to implement all the suggestions and practices offered by your advisor plus have to find out additional effective ways.
The hypnosis is a very effective and useful therapy for those who want to try this to change their mind and thoughts about their everyday problems. Lots of patients Paris have reported positive results after getting a few sessions of the treatment.
There are many different techniques followed by the experts of hypnosis but a typical program like ours starts with a phone consultation, followed by an individual personal session where the client is guided through breathing and visualization exercises and then “induced” into a “trance” — which is actually a state of extreme relaxation.
Once the patient is in the trance phase, the hypnotist puts forth statements like “I am uninterested in cigarettes” or “I hate the smell of smoke on my clothing”. This type of remarks made in front of the patient either by himself or by the hypnotist are responsible for bringing the change in the behavior of the client specially when such statements are given in trance phase.
Then the client is brought back from the hypnotic stage. Actually the work plan is to guide the client in a hyper-responsive and hyper-attentive state by touching his subconscious state of mind. The example of the subconscious of human mind is just like a computer hard drive which is responsible for taking in information for records and when it is required it plays back that saved information or data. The advantage of working with subconscious is that we can remove the information that is not required at all and replace it with our choice.
The process of hypnosis actually uses the power of the subconscious in an ideal way to change or transform the behavior and life styles of the individuals. The most interesting thing about this phenomenon is that it is only initiated by the will power of the client which is a must for the proper recovery of the habits of the patients. The hypnotist suggests information about the drawbacks and effects of smoking into the subconscious of the client as they could for the best possible results. This information triggers the efforts of the client to stop smoking, “arrêter de fumer”.
Hypnosis (Arrêter de fumer par hypnose) is a wonderful method for those who really want to get rid of smoking. The hypnosis session help them to transform their desire to reality but if there is no desire then there is no hypnotist in the world who can do good to you, so there is always a need of an initiative or a step that will further be led by the hypnotherapist for success.
