Hypnosis was the most effective form of smoking cessation
A world-wide survey carried out by the ‘New Scientist Magazine' which surveyed over 72,000 smokers found that Hypnosis was the most effective form of smoking cessation (stopping smoking) over every other method.* Will power alone had a success rate of only six percent.
Most smokers are fully aware of the dangers of smoking and are capable of consciously altering their behaviour if they choose to however, many smokers do not. This means that there must be unconscious forces at play.
One reason why Hypnotherapy is so successful in smoking cessation is due to its ability to access the unconscious mind where our behaviours are based.
Some of the key benefits of smoking cessation are that in only four days all traces of nicotine will be gone from your body, it's both encouraging and motivational to notice these benefits as one goes along. Below are the facts about how your body will change.
