HYPNOSIS IS THE MOST EFFECTIVE WAY, and five times more effective than sheer willpower alone, as a way to stop smoking.

Scientists at the University of Iowa1 discovered that Hypnosis was the most effective way of giving up smoking by statistically combining the results of more than 600 studies covering almost 72,000 people from America, Scandinavia and elsewhere in Europe.

Considering that about half of all regular cigarette smokers will eventually be killed by their addition and smoking accounting for over one-third of respiratory deaths, over one-quarter of cancer deaths, and about one-seventh of cardiovascular disease deaths and, even if it doesn’t kill you, the benefits of quitting smoking are clear. However, although there are about 9.6 million adult smokers in Great Britain and surveys show that about two-thirds of current smokers would like to stop smoking only 30% – 40% try to quit in each year.

Is now the right moment for you to break free from smoking and become a non-smoker? Smoking is a powerful addiction which, once formed, can be difficult to break without help, therefore the more motivated you are, the easier becoming a non-smoker will be.

To give yourself the greatest chance of success, you must agree with the following two statements:
• Yes, I want to break free from smoking
• Yes, I am fully committed to being a non-smoker
If you have answered YES, I can help you to stop smoking today and the process can be completed in as little as two hours.

We’ll start by understanding if smoking is a habit or perhaps you feel the need to smoke? When do you reach for a cigarette? When you first wake up, after a meal, completing a task or before bed? When you’re feeling stressed, bored, nervous or alone? Or perhaps it’s to help you relax or feel confident?
Next comes hypnosis, a pleasant, relaxing experience during which you are completely in control and whereby I, a trained therapist, will target your unhelpful behaviours and remove the desire to smoke. That’s it.

The good news is that within 20 minutes of quitting your pulse returns to normal and within 8 hours, nicotine, within your system, is reduced by 90%. After 48 hours, your nerve endings begin to regrow and your senses of smell and taste begin to return to normal and within a month skin loses its grey pallor and becomes less wrinkled2.

With one cigarette costing 11 minutes of life and a 20-a-day smoker spending about £3,000 per year, why not book a ‘SINGLE STOP SMOKING’ hypnotherapy session with Jenny West today. Smokers are apparently most likely to think about quitting on a Monday3, but you don’t have to wait for help to stop smoking and to start saving money and your perhaps your life.
