Afraid To Stop Smoking? - Articles Surfing
If it is that easy to stop smoking with hypnosis/NLP why do so many people continue to smoke?
In my experience I have found that for most people the answer comes down to one thing...FEAR!
FEAR that you'll never be able to continue your life as a non smoker and be completely free of nicotine;
All of these examples of FEAR are simply potential symptoms of the one simple reason that until now you have not been able to stop smoking and this in itself is another FEAR
The fear that it will prove too difficult and far too painful when you attempt to stop smoking!
Hypnosis or NLP, or anything else, cannot magically remove your need or desire to smoke. But it helps control your cravings, your urge to smoke. With the techniques you learn during our stop smoking program you gain tools to help you deal with stressful situations, whether by using a cue, a breathing technique or a mantra, without falling back to smoking.
Fear is the reason why most people are happy and content to stay in the their comfort zone even though they complain about what goes on around them. As the saying goes: "better the Devil you know". There is a comfort about complaining. Do you know someone who drains you by constantly complaining? You ask "how are you" and you actually get to hear all about their woes and pains when in fact you just want a pleasantry back.
What is F.E.A.R. and why am I writing it like that. Well, let's look at the letters:
F is False
E is Expectation
A is Appearing
R is Real
Now say it again and again.
Now think of situations that made you fearful, but you did it anyway and then when it was over, you wondered why it had bothered you so much.
So don't let your False Expectations Appearing Real hold you back. Take control of your life and quit smoking now.
Tips for Staying Smoke Free
* Get rid of all cigarettes and ashtrays before your stop smoking session or as soon as you possibly can after the session.
