"I first tried hypnosis in August to quit smoking, it worked! No cravings, no desire and I feel as though I was never a smoker!" -- S.K.
It's popular these days to hear "nicotine is more addictive than cocaine". But is that really true?
Whether you're smoking or dipping or vaping or just trying to get off the patch, you must surely have wondered, "just how easy is it to quit doing this?"
Since nicotine dependency is the leading cause of death in the United States, the answer to this question is of critical importance to every smoker.
If you read the scientific literature, you'll find research showing nicotine to be highly addictive, and you'll also find contradictory research showing it to be nothing like cocaine or heroin.
Our observation has been that whatever the addictive value of nicotine is, our clients can kick the habit in a single session. Yes, even clients who have smoked for 40 years can stop smoking in one session.
We believe nicotine addiction is more of a state of mind, rather than just a chemical dependency. If that were not the case, we would not have this success rate. You CAN stop smoking, and hypnosis can help you!
So, in what way is hypnotherapy better than nicotine replacement therapy?
Read this abstract about a study conducted in 2014 which showed that those treated with hypnotherapy were 3 times more likely to still be non-smokers 26 weeks after treatment than those treated with nicotine replacement therapy alone.
The American Lung Assocation of Ohio did an experiment to see whether a single group session would be effective to help people stop smoking. They found 22% of the group participants had benefited from even this short exposure to hypnotherapy that wasn't even custom-tailored to them.
Far more effective is a 3-session program customized to the individual, as this study in 2010 discovered an 81% success rate. Maybe that's why our Nicotine Cessation Program is 3 sessions for most clients.
