Stop Smoking in just ONE hour
From my experience of helping more than 3,000 smokers around the world to give up, I have found that hypnosis has a much higher success rate than any other treatment.
Over the years, I have honed my own technique so that I now have it a 95% success rate and have also found it is possible to cure someone of smoking in just one hour-long session.
Everyone is susceptible to hypnosis, thought some more than others. The most important thing is for the smoker to genuinely want to give up.
I use a perfectly safe mind reprogramming techniques to change peoples attitude to smoking, and to shift the satisfaction they get from smoking to something beneficial to them. But it is also possible to hypnotise yourself.
Below is a step-by-step guide to creating your own cassette tape for self-hypnosis. You can stop smoking in one hour, or as long as it takes to play the tape you prepare from the following instructions.
There are three stages to self-hypnosis:
Progressive relaxation- a set of words to induce a trance state.
A stop smoking recorded script you listen to while in the trace state.
Counting yourself out of hypnosis.
All of the above can be recorder with your own voice on the cassette, which you should play when you are sitting or lying comfortably.
There should be no distractions, so you may need to take the phone off the hook. When taping your voice, you need to be slow and monotonous.
You may prefer to hypnotise yourself every day for three weeks, or you may find that once is enough.
My book includes a suggested script for progressive relaxation, but you can simply buy one of the many relaxation tapes available and record it in your own voice for the beginning of your stop smoking cassette.
Relaxation techniques will create a hypnotic state, by slowing down, the brain, waves, even if the word hypnosis is never used. When you listen to the tape, dont worry about whether you are achieving hypnosis: just let you mind drift with the words, and it should happen.
There is an aversion therapy script in my book which I often use at this point to increase the effectiveness of the stop smoking suggestions.
The aversion therapy helps the mind experience the unpleasant side of cigarettes, such as the stale smell of the smoke, so when you return to a normal state the thought of a cigarette repulses you even more.
To HELP bring yourself out of hypnosis, use the counting out script to count backwards from ten to one.
In a moment, I am going to count from ten to one, and at the count of one you feel fully aware, fully alert and your eyes will open. Ten, nine, eight coming up now seven, six five- more and more alert four, three, two, one: eyes open.
Which this form of suggestion hypnosis it may work immediately, or you may feel more comfortable hypnotising yourself daily for up to three weeks.
If you have no desire for a cigarette after one session, there is no need to continue. Keep your cassette handy and if you feel you want a cigarette in the future, just reinforce your resolve with another session.
