15 years: risk of coronary heart disease same as non-smoker’s risk.
There is no safe amount of cigarette smoke. When you smoke, the chemicals in tobacco reach your lungs quickly every time you inhale. Your blood carries the toxins to every organ in your body. But after you stop, your body begins to heal within 20 minutes of your last cigarette. The nicotine leaves your body within three days. As your body starts to repair itself, you may feel worse instead of better. Withdrawal can be difficult, but it’s a sign that your body is healing.
What is Hypnosis?
The word itself is defined by being an altered state of consciousness or awareness where the individual under hypnosis appears to be in a trance or sleep state. Hypnosis is commonly used in the treatment of a variety of physiological and physical problems. It is currently utilized in the treatment of pain control, speech disorders, weight issues and addiction problems. While there is certainly general debate about how it works, there is certainly statistical information that shows that for some, it does indeed work, and very well.
Hypnosis to Stop Smoking
The basic principle of hypnosis treatment for addiction is to bring those unhealthy thoughts to the surface and to replace them with more positive thoughts that encourage the smoker to cease leaning on something so dangerous to one's health. Clients may be asked, under hypnosis, to share what they know that the unpleasant outcomes of smoking could be. The idea is to make the client understand the three critical principles of stopping.
1. Smoking poisons the human body
2. The body is needed to live
3. Protect your body to the extent that you would prefer to live
In many cases, a hypnotherapist will also teach the individual the art of self-hypnosis
Reasons People Don’t Stop the Smoking Habit
Most people know the major benefits to stopping smoking. They know by stopping they would improve their health and vitality and cut the risks of contracting terrible diseases. They know by stopping they would not feel like such a slave to the constant urges to smoke. They know by stopping smoking they would smell better and not have to hide their habit from their friends, family and co-workers. And let’s face it, most people are aware that by stopping the habit of smoking they wouldn’t have to waste their money on the cigarettes and all the up-keep costs that being a smoker incurs.
So, why do people keep smoking in spite of knowing all these things? The answer comes down to one thing… FEAR.
The fear that you‘ll have to give up your pleasure, crutch, or “friend”.
The fear that you will get too stressed out or angry.
The fear of weight gain because you will start eating more or your metabolism will tank.
The fear that the withdraw process will be too traumatic.
The fear that you will be giving up one of the pleasures in your life.
The fear that even though you have stopped smoking you will always have the craving to smoke.
The fears above are all smaller fears of one big overpowering fear. The main reason that you have not stop smoking is this-THE FEAR that it is going to be too difficult and painful.
Usually when a smoker “tries” to stop with either on their own or with other methods they feel miserable and suffer the depression brought on by the feeling that “something’s missing” and that they are being deprived of their escape, pleasure, or crutch. The brilliance of hypnosis, and the way we have formulated our specialized treatment in particular, is that it takes away the feeling of being deprived. It removes the dependency and the need to smoke. You will find the need outside aids, gimmicks, or replacements unnecessary. No e-cigarettes, patches or nicotine gum. No herbal remedies, acupuncture or lasers. Hypnosis is as painless as sitting back in a pleasant, comfy chair, and relaxing…nice and easy!
You can become a non-smoker with Hypnosis
Our Method’s Specialized Approach
In the early 1950’s the American Medical Association approved the use of clinical hypnosis. Since then, thousands of people have found hypnosis to be a powerful way to stop persistent habits like smoking or weight gain, and to enhance confidence and productivity for an overall improved life. Results with hypnosis can vary of course because a lot depends on the experience, competence and skill level of each hypnotherapist – as well as the methods and techniques that they practice.
The beauty of our Hypnosis Stop Smoking Method is that it utilizes the best of classic hypnotherapy techniques and blends them powerfully with the science of Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP). Doing this makes the hypnosis more effective.
One of the main reasons we find success with our special hypnosis method is that the nature of the technique lets us take the pleasure associated with smoking and transfer it to a healthier habit of the smoker’s choice (e.g. relaxing, exercising, drinking water, etc). Therefore, with our technique there is NO weight gain or other undesirable side effects associated with stopping smoking. The only “side effects” are actually benefits that you receive when you become a non-smoker-an increase in vitality and health, a relief from the sneaking around, more money in your wallet, freedom, and peace of mind!
Nothing to Fear, Everything to Gain
Hypnosis has been around for centuries. The old misconceptions that hypnosis is magic or Voo-Doo and the myths about hypnosis have been replaced by researched and scientifically-backed applications. Now hypnosis is used in a wide range of fields, including sports, law enforcement, medicine, education and dentistry.
Some people still have misconceptions about the positive benefits that can be achieved during a session of professionally-controlled clinical hypnosis. We explain some of the myths and answer questions during your session.
Reason to Stop Smoking
When a strong craving hits, it can be easy to lose sight of the benefits of stopping. You might lose your focus, but there is no good reason to smoke.
Remind yourself of the rewards of stopping to help yourself stay on track:
20 minutes: heart rate, blood pressure drop
12 hours: carbon monoxide in blood stream drops to normal
2 weeks–3 months: circulation, lung function improve; heart attack risk begins to drop
1–9 months: cough less, breathe easier
1 year: risk of coronary heart disease cut in half
2–5 years: risk of cancer of mouth, throat, esophagus, bladder cut in half; stroke risk is reduced to that of a nonsmoker
10 years: half as likely to die from lung cancer; risk of kidney or pancreatic cancer decreases
Smoking makes your blood thick and sticky. The stickier the blood, the harder your heart must work to move it around your body. Sticky blood is also more likely to form blood clots that block blood flow to your heart, brain, and legs. Over time, thick, sticky blood damages the delicate lining of your blood vessels. This damage can increase your risk for a heart attack or stroke.
Smoking increases the cholesterol and unhealthy fats circulating in the blood, leading to unhealthy fatty deposits. Over time, cholesterol, fats, and other debris build up on the walls of your arteries. This buildup narrow-no-jss the arteries and blocks normal blood flow to the heart, brain, and legs. Blocked blood flow to the heart or brain can cause a heart attack or stroke. Blockage in the blood vessels of your legs could result in the amputation of your toes or feet.
Smoking causes inflammation in the small airways and tissues of your lungs. This can make your chest feel tight or cause you to wheeze or feel short of breath. Continued inflammation builds up scar tissue, which leads to physical changes to your lungs and airways that can make breathing hard. Years of lung irritation can give you a chronic cough with mucus.
Smoking destroys the tiny air sacs, or alveoli, in the lungs that allow oxygen exchange. When you smoke, you are damaging some of those air sacs. Alveoli don’t grow back, so when you destroy them, you have permanently destroyed part of your lungs. When enough alveoli are destroyed, the disease emphysema develops. Emphysema causes severe shortness of breath and can lead to death.
Cilia and Respiratory Infections
Your airways are lined with tiny brush like hairs, called cilia. The cilia sweep out mucus and dirt so your lungs stay clear. Smoking temporarily paralyzes and even kills cilia. This makes you more at risk for infection. Smokers get more colds and respiratory infections than non-smokers.
Your body is made up of cells that contain genetic material, or DNA, that acts as an “instruction manual” for cell growth and function. Every single puff of a cigarette causes damages to your DNA. When DNA is damaged, the “instruction manual” gets messed up, and the cell can begin growing out of control and create a cancer tumor. Your body tries to repair the damage that smoking does to your DNA, but over time, smoking can wear down this repair system and lead to cancer (like lung cancer). One-third of all cancer deaths are caused by tobacco.
Stomach and Hormones Belly
Bigger belly. Smokers have bigger bellies and less muscle than non-smokers. They are more likely to develop type 2 diabetes, even if they don’t smoke every day. Smoking also makes it harder to control diabetes once you already have it. Diabetes is a serious disease that can lead to blindness, heart disease, kidney failure, and amputations.
Lower estrogen levels smoking lowers a female’s level of estrogen. Low estrogen levels can cause dry skin, thinning hair, and memory problems. Women who smoke have a harder time getting pregnant and having a healthy baby. Smoking can also lead to early menopause, which increases your risk of developing certain diseases (like heart disease).
Smoking increases the risk of erectile dysfunction—the inability to get or keep and erection. Toxins from cigarette smoke can also damage the genetic material in sperm, which can cause infertility or genetic defects in your children.
Blood and the Immune System
High white blood cell count
When you smoke, the number of white blood cells (the cells that defend your body from infections) stays high. This is a sign that your body is under stress—constantly fighting against the inflammation and damage caused by tobacco. A high white blood cell count is like a signal from your body, letting you know you’ve been injured. White blood cell counts that stay elevated for a long time are linked with an increased risk of heart attacks, strokes, and cancer.
Longer to heal
Nutrients, minerals, and oxygen are all supplied to the tissue through the blood stream. Nicotine causes blood vessels to tighten, which decreases levels of nutrients supplied to wounds. As a result, wounds take longer to heal. Slow wound healing increases the risk of infection after an injury or surgery and painful skin ulcers can develop, causing the tissue to slowly die.
Weakened immune system
Cigarette smoke contains high levels of tar and other chemicals, which can make your immune system less effective at fighting off infections. This means you’re more likely to get sick. Continued weakening of the immune system can make you more vulnerable to autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis. It also decreases your body’s ability to fight off cancer!
Muscles and Bones
Muscle deterioration. When you smoke, less blood and oxygen flow to your muscles, making it harder to build muscle. The lack of oxygen also makes muscles tire more easily. Smokers have more muscle aches and pains than non-smokers.
More Broken Bones Ingredients in cigarette smoke disrupt the natural cycle of bone health. Your body is less able to form healthy new bone tissue, and it breaks down existing bone tissue more rapidly. Over time, smoking leads to a thinning of bone tissue and loss of bone density. This causes bones to become weak and brittle. Compared to non-smokers, smokers have a higher risk of bone fractures, and their broken bones take longer to heal.

What's in a Cigarette
There are approximately 600 ingredients in cigarettes. When burned, they create more than 7,000 chemicals. At least 69 of these chemicals are known to cause cancer, and many are poisonous.
Many of these chemicals also are found in consumer products, but these products have warning labels. While the public is warned about the danger of the poisons in these products, there is no such warning for the toxins in tobacco smoke.
Here are a few of the chemicals in tobacco smoke and other places they are found:
Ammonia: Household cleaner
Angelica root extract: Known to cause cancer in animals
Arsenic: Used in rat poisons
Benzene: Used in making dyes, synthetic rubber
Butane: Gas; used in lighter fluid
Carbon monoxide: Poisonous gas
Cadmium: Used in batteries
Cyanide: Deadly poison
DDT: A banned insecticide
Ethyl Furcate: Causes liver damage in animals
Lead: Poisonous in high doses
Formaldehyde: Used to preserve dead specimens
Megastigmatrienone: Chemical naturally found in grapefruit juice
Maltitol: Sweetener for diabetics
Napthalene: Ingredient in mothballs
Methyl isocyanate: Its accidental release killed 2000 people in Bhopal, India in 1984
Polonium: Cancer-causing radioactive element
Tips for Stop Smoking Day
1. Make a Stop Plan
Having a plan can make your stop day easier. A stop plan gives you ways to stay focused, confident, and motivated to stop. You can build your own stop plan or find a stop program that works for you with hypnosis. If you don’t know what stop method might be right for you, you can explore different stop methods. No single approach to stopping works for everyone. Be honest about your needs.
Stop Smoking with Hypnosis in the Clearwater and Tampa Bay areas.
Stopping a smoking habit can be intensely challenging for some. Many attempt to stop and then fall back into the dangerous habit. Because those who attempt to stop are often so determined to fight the addiction, they are often willing to try quite a few different ideas. This is a great way to approach the task as what may work wonderfully for one, may not work at all for another. Some methods people try, but are certainly not limited to are:
Nicotine Patches, Nicotine Gum, Counseling, Prescription Medications, Behavior Modification Techniques
If you have tried all that medical and mental health sciences has to offer and failed, your doctor may suggest you try hypnosis to Stop Smoking.
Stopping can help you add years to your life. Smokers who stop before age 40 reduce their chance of dying too early from smoking-related diseases by about 90 percent. Those who stop by age 45–54 reduce their chance of dying too early by about two-thirds. You can take control of your health by stopping and staying smoke free. Over time, you’ll greatly lower your risk of death from lung cancer and other diseases such as heart disease, stroke, chronic bronchitis, emphysema, and at least 13 other kinds of cancer.
When you stop, you’ll also protect your loved ones from dangerous secondhand smoke. You’ll set a good example and show your family that a life without cigarettes is possible.
Smoking harms nearly every organ of the body. Some of these harmful effects are immediate. Find out the health effects of smoking have on different parts of your body.
Addiction. Nicotine from cigarettes is as addictive as heroin. Nicotine addiction is hard to beat because it changes your brain. The brain develops extra nicotine receptors to accommodate the large doses of nicotine from tobacco. When the brain stops getting the nicotine it’s used to, the result is nicotine withdrawal. You may feel anxious, irritable, and have strong cravings for nicotine.
Head and Face and Ears
Hearing loss. Smoking reduces the oxygen supply to the cochlea, a snail-shaped organ in the inner ear. This may result in permanent damage to the cochlea and mild to moderate hearing loss.
Blindness and night vision. Smoking causes physical changes in the eyes that can threaten your eyesight. Nicotine from cigarettes restricts the production of a chemical necessary for you to be able to see at night. Also, smoking increases your risk of developing cataracts and macular degeneration (both can lead to blindness).
Cavities. Smoking takes a toll on your mouth. Smokers have more oral health problems than non-smokers, like mouth sores, ulcers and gum disease. You are more likely to have cavities and lose your teeth at a younger age. You are also more likely to get cancers of the mouth and throat.
Smoker’s face. Smoking can cause your skin to be dry and lose elasticity, leading to wrinkles and stretch marks. Your skin tone may become dull and grayish. By your early 30s, wrinkles can begin to appear around your mouth and eyes, adding years to your face. Stopping can protect your skin from premature aging and wrinkling.
Smoking raises your blood pressure and puts stress on your heart. Over time, stress on the heart can weaken it, making it less able to pump blood to other parts of your body. Carbon monoxide from inhaled cigarette smoke also contributes to a lack of oxygen, making the heart work even harder. This increases the risk of heart disease, including heart attacks.

Why Stopping Is Hard
Many ex-smokers say stopping was the hardest thing they ever did. Yet millions of people have been able to do it—and you can, too. One of the first steps is to learn why you feel like you need to smoke. Once you understand why you smoke, you can prepare yourself to find the best ways to stop. Build a Stop Plan to help you identify your smoking triggers, learn about managing cravings, and explore different stop methods.
One of the main reasons smokers keep smoking is nicotine. Nicotine is a chemical in cigarettes that makes you addicted to smoking. Over time, your body gets used to having nicotine. However, the more you smoke‚ the more nicotine you need to feel normal. When your body doesn't get nicotine, you may feel uncomfortable and crave cigarettes. This is called withdrawal.
It takes time to get over withdrawal. Most physical symptoms go away after a few days to a week, but cigarette cravings may stick around longer. There are ways you can be prepared for withdrawal.
The worst withdrawal symptoms only last a few days to a couple of weeks. Stay strong!
When you smoke, certain activities, feelings, and people become linked to your smoking. These may "trigger" your urge to smoke. Try to anticipate these smoking triggers and develop ways to deal with them:
Go to places that don't allow smoking. Shops, movie theaters, and many restaurants are now smoke free.
Spend more time with non-smokers. You won't want to smoke as badly if you are around people who don't smoke.
Keep your hands busy. Play a game on your phone, eat a healthy snack, or squeeze a stress ball.
Take a deep breath. Remind yourself why you want to stop smoking. Think of people in your life who will be happier and healthier because you decided to quit.
Count your savings! To pass time during a craving, think of how you’ll spend what you’ve saved.
Stop smoking Hypnosis programs help smokers understand and cope with problems they have when trying to stop. The program teaches problem-solving and other coping skills. A stop smoking program can help you stop for good.
Helping you understand why you smoke.
Teaching you how to handle withdrawal and stress.
Teaching you tips to help resist the urge to smoke.
2. Stay Busy
Keeping busy is a great way to stay smoke free on your stop day. Being busy will help you keep your mind off smoking and distract you from cravings. Think about trying some of these activities:
Get out of the house for a walk.
Chew gum or hard candy.
Keep your hands busy with a pen or toothpick, or play a game.
Drink lots of water.
Relax with deep breathing.
Go to a movie.
Spend time with non-smoking friends and family.
Go to dinner at your favorite smoke free restaurant.
Take stopping one day at a time. What you learn today can help you tomorrow.
3. Avoid Smoking Triggers
Triggers are the people, places, things, and situations that set off your urge to smoke. On your stop day, try to avoid all your triggers. Here are some tips to help you outsmart some common smoking triggers:
Throw away your cigarettes, lighters, and ash trays if you haven’t already.
Avoid caffeine, which can make you feel jittery. Try drinking water instead.
Spend time with non-smokers.
Go to places where smoking isn’t allowed.
Get plenty of rest and eat healthy. Being tired can trigger you to smoke.
Change your routine to avoid the things you might associate with smoking.
4. Stay Positive
Stopping smoking is difficult. It happens one minute…one hour…one day at a time. Try not to think of stopping as forever. Pay attention to today and the time will add up. It helps to stay positive. Your stop day might not be perfect, but all that matters is that you don’t smoke—not even one puff. Reward yourself for being smoke free for 24 hours. You deserve it. And if you’re not feeling ready to stop today, set a stop date that makes sense for you. It’s OK if you need a few more days to prepare to stop smoking.
5. Ask for Help
You don’t need to rely on willpower alone to be smoke free. Tell your family and friends when your stop day is. Ask them for support on stop day and in the first few days and weeks after. They can help you get through the rough spots. Let them know exactly how they can support you. Don’t assume they’ll know.
