How long does it take for Sydney hypnosis to work when it comes to helping you to stop smoking? Well, every smoker has a slightly different and personal relationship with cigarettes, so it's a bit like asking how long does it take to get over an ex? It just depends on the relationship and the level of attachment. There's three crucial stages of the journey that you really need to understand in order to improve your probability that you'll be able to stop smoking for good.

If, by the time you come along to see a Sydney hypnotherapist, you're already at the stage where you're just over it, every time you light up a cigarette you just hate it, you hate that you're addicted to it, and you hate the way that you see yourself as a smoker ... By this stage, you really want this. You really want this for yourself, not just because somebody else has sort of pushed you into it or because you know it's the right thing to do, but because deep down you actually really feel a strong desire that you want this for you.

Well, the good news is, once you get to this point, you're probably more than halfway there because breaking the habit is actually a lot easier than most people realize. For most people, the hardest part is just getting to that point where they're ready to make that decision to really jump in and feel a sense of dedication and commitment to decide that they really want to stop smoking for themselves. Once you get to this point, most people can quit in around about two to three sessions. Some people even do it in one session. It really depends on your level of dedication and how committed you are to want to stop smoking.

If you ever hear about people that have quit smoking after one session of hypnosis, it's because they've reached that second stage. Now, if you haven't reached that second stage yet, and you're still kind of stuck at that first stage where part of you sort of knows it's the right thing to do but another part sort of still enjoys smoking, or maybe you feel a sense of obligation, maybe a loved one is kind of pushing you into it, well, that's okay. That's certainly better than having no desire at all, but you really got to get to that second stage before we know that hypnosis Sydneyis going to work.

If you're still kind of stuck at that stage one, look, that's okay, but I just wouldn't make the aim to quick smoking straight away. Probably use those first couple of sessions to sort of dig deep and find within you a really strong and compelling desire to want to quit smoking for you rather than just want to quit smoking for someone else or because it seems like the right thing to do.

After those first couple of sessions, you wouldn't [inaudible 00:02:17] to stop smoking straight away. You would be expected to keep smoking, but the aim would be to get to the point where, every time you light up, you notice that, gradually, it just starts to feel different, so every time you have a cigarette, you find yourself enjoying it less and less. Gradually, over time, over a matter of days and weeks, eventually, you get to the point where you're just over it. You just don't want to smoke any more. That way, you get to that second level where you decide that you want to stop smoking for you, not just because you know it's the best thing to do, but because you feel a strong desire to want to stop smoking.

Stage one, you know, intellectually, it's the right thing to do. Stage two, you get to the point where you feel a strong desire to want to stop smoking. You do some hypnosis. You break the habit, and you quit smoking. That's great, but stage three is the part that a lot of people never reach. Stage three is the part where there's no way you could ever possibly regress back into your old smoker self.

Now, let me explain what happens for most people. For most people, they start smoking at a younger stage of life where, maybe, they're under a lot of stress. There's a lot of uncertainty, a lot of self-doubt. They don't feel self-confident in themselves. Then, over the years, they kind of grow up a bit. They mature a bit, and they get to the point where they're a little bit more motivated to care for themselves and look after themself. They get to that point where they feel a strong desire to want to stop smoking. They do some hypnosis. They break the habit, and everything is going fine. They stay on the wagon so long as life doesn't get in the way.

Here's the thing that happens inevitably, whether it's six weeks, six months, or six years or more down the track. This is the best way to think of it. Have you every noticed that when people are going through a really tough time, when they're under an enormous amount of stress, and they're not coping, and it's like you can sense the energy in them changes? It's like this sort of scared inner child part of them sort of comes to the surface, and they start behaving in a way that's not their usual self. When life gets in the way, we tend to regress back into a less mature version of ourself. When we do that, we tend to regress into our old destructive habits as well.

Let's say this person, they've got to the point where they do the hypnosis. They quit smoking, and everything is going fine, but then they hit one of life's hurdles. Maybe they go through a breakup, or they get a new boss at work who starts bullying them, or they lose their job, or they experience the death of a loved one, or something gets in the way. What happens is, at that point, they're likely to regress back into their old ways. When you end up hitting one of these hurdles in life, that's the true test. If you can hit one of these hurdles and come out the other side and remain a non-smoker, there's a very good chance that you'll never go back to smoking.

Now, the realistic probability of the treatment being successful long term becomes a lot more unpredictable if you're the kind of person who smokes not just because it's a bad habit, but if you're the kind of smoker who uses cigarettes as a coping mechanism or, essentially, you're using smoking to sort of medicate your emotions. If that describes you, and you do a hypnosis purely to break the habit, I mean, you'll be fine so long as life is fine. But once when you hit one of the hurdles up ahead, by that point, you want to make sure that you've got a new and healthier coping mechanism installed to make sure that you don't regress into your old familiar patterns.

The other thing that happens to a lot of people that use smoking as a coping mechanism is, once the hypnosis gets rid of the desire to smoke, then they end up transferring that desire onto something else, some other addiction, some other coping mechanism that they use to medicate their emotions with instead. Now, it could be other drugs, but the most common thing is foods. A lot of people end up addicted to comfort eating instead.

What's the difference between the kind of person who quits temporarily and then falls back into their old ways compared to the person who quits permanently? Well, the major difference is the person who quits temporarily will say that they essentially feel like the same person only without the cigarettes, whereas the person who quits permanently, they'll say that they feel like something has kind of changed on the inside. Now, let me explain what I mean by this.

Think of it this way. If you think back throughout the course of your life, we tend to sort of categorize or break different parts of our life up, sort of like into different chapters. During a certain chapter, you lived in this place. You were in this relationship. You did this job. Then you moved to this place. Then you were with someone different, doing something different. For each chapter, each time that you sort of moved to the next section of your life, you feel a little bit different. You feel like you've come to accept things that you hadn't accepted previously. You come to an understanding, an awareness about things that you hadn't previously been aware of. You kind of feel like you've sort of grown up and matured at each different level as you progress through life. That's how we grow and mature emotionally.

The person who quits for good permanently, when they think back to their younger self when they used to smoke, they kind of feel like that part of them has changed. They sort of feel almost like a new person. They feel a little bit more wiser, more grown up. They feel like they couldn't see themselves being like that anymore. It's like they've started to move on to a new chapter of life. So, ideally, in order to make sure that the treatment is successful for good, you want to try and make that your goal, to sort of change on the inside so you get to the point where you just feel like you're writing a new chapter of life, essentially.

The other classic mistake that a lot of people make, and this is predictable among the kind of people that are likely to regress later on down the track, is they set out with the intention, or their aim is to try to quit as quickly as possible, to kind of hurry up and get it over and done with. Now, people that think this way tend to be very short-sighted. They tend to be more impulsive. They tend to have less patience. Finally, they tend to be prone to addiction. The aim here is to really change your way of thinking.

Now, how long is it going to take you to install healthier coping mechanisms? That's much harder to predict, and it depends a lot on your personal situation. If you're willing to learn how to change your way of thinking and learn how to respond to stress and how to respond to those emotions that you've been otherwise medicating with cigarettes or some other addiction, then that's what's going to help you get to that third stage. That's what's going to help make sure that, no matter what gets in the way, no matter what hurdles you hit in life, you'll stay smoke-free and addiction-free for the rest of your life.

Beneath this video, you can either download the ebook, if you prefer reading, or audiobook, if you prefer listening. Either way, in this ebook, I explain the psychological factors behind smoking that a lot of people don't even realize. I also explain the difference between person A and person B who both start smoking around the same time, but when it comes time to quit, person A is a lot more successful compared to person B who goes around in circles. I show you how to make sure you become person A rather than person B. Once you understand the mental aspects with a lot more clarity, it'll guide you in the right direction to make sure you reach that third stage and not only become a non-smoker but, most importantly, stay a non-smoker.
