Staying Smoke-Free Through Hypnosis
On November 17, the American Cancer Society marks the 36th Great American Smokeout, a day dedicated to helping people kick the nicotine habit. But if you’ve quit more than once only to start smoking again because sheer willpower or nicotine gum hasn’t worked, perhaps there’s a better alternative to becoming and remaining smoke-free. According to the Hypnosis Counseling Center, with offices in Bloomfield, Flemington and Frenchtown, hypnosis offers the easiest, most effective way to quit smoking for good. The center will hold group smoking-cessations programs this month in Parsippany, Morristown, Maplewood, Roxbury, Rutherford and Bayonne.
The method most recommended by doctors to change ingrained behavior, such as smoking, is also the one that makes the most logical sense: behavior modification. Hypnosis can be a very powerful tool for modifying ingrained behaviors. With hypnosis, you discover what the subconscious roots are to your behavior-triggers for smoking. In just two or three sessions, the center’s therapists can analyze the patterns of your smoking behavior, delve into the emotional and psychological needs you might be trying to meet, and create a fully personalized audio CD for your use that is custom-made to your specific situation.
