So, if you smoke, listen up.
Side-smoke dangers are now clearly established and so smoking affects us all. Researchers took 67 patients with heart or lung problems and divided them into 4 groups.
The control group’ quit smoking without any supportive treatment, a second group underwent hypnotherapy, a third group received Nicotine Replacement Therapy (pills or patch), and the fourth group received both hypnotherapy and NRT.
More women chose hypnotherapy, whereas men were more likely to choose a patch or go cold turkey.
Hypnotic suggestion was the clear winner: 50% of patients remaining non-smokers at 6 months.
Cold turkey came second with 25% and NRT was a miserable 16%.
Interestingly to me, hypnotism and NRT combined didn’t work any better than just hypnotism alone.
So, forget the expensive patches and don’t suffer the hard route with just will power.
Get hypnotism, which had DOUBLE the success rate of “cold turkey”.
I know the numbers were small + all sick people, with dangerous heart or lung complaints, thus strongly motivated to quit smoking.
How far one can generalize the findings and apply them to (I almost wrote “fit, healthy smokers”, which would be an oxymoron) all would-be quitters, I can’t say. You can get stop-smoking hypnotism and other downloads from this page: www.hypnosisdownloads.com/downloads/health/smoking.
Means to adapt the body’s own energy field and invert certain key frequencies, so canceling them out.
You can do the same thing with the frequency signal of a substance. It works for wheat allergy, mercury detox etc.
Tobacco is just another toxin.
The practitioner has to be careful; I have seen a case with just a tiny signal for “wheat” cause a wheat-sensitive patient to go straight into an asthma attack.
Those offering bio-resonance therapy for wannabe quitters claim around 90% success.
Beware of statistics like that from somebody trying to sell you something! But I can tell you the method really does work and works very often. ( I do not practice this. )
My table of success priority:
1. Bioresonance if you can find it
3. Sublingual neutralization, aka. addiction neutralization
4. Counseling, Allan Carr etc. 5.Nicotine replacement therapy.
Ex smokers are under quite severe stress.
I used to administer a temporary low dose of steroids.
This made more sense than using anti-depressants, which is the fashion.
You’ll need an extraordinarily co-operative MD for this. But it really did help (first 10 days, maximum).
Nowadays I would use well-loved and tested complex homeopathic remedies, such as Traumeel,Nervoheel http://www.biopathica.co.uk
Finally: healthy chocolate contains L-theanine.
This amino acid, which occurs naturally in green tea, is a powerful relaxant and de-stresser.
My Friend Gerry sucks on a baby pacifier to get rid of tobacco with big success.
P.s.: I smoked 60 years 3 pack a day, and I apologize I still do.
