Everybody knows the dangers of smoking, it is common knowledge that smoking is the single worst thing you can do for your health.
But somehow these scary facts just are just not enough motivation to stop. Research even suggests that smoking may produce anxiety symptoms in people making them more likely to develop disorders like panic attacks. People often mistakenly believe that smoking calms them down . when in fact it is just the way they breathe whilst smoking that causes a temporary calming effect. but all this makes little difference because human beings are very good at hiding from facts.
If it was just down to public information and common sense would have stopped ages ago. To stay stopped , you need to FEEL differently about smoking and that’s what hypnosis is good for. And you know people say things like “I know I should stop”.. but this is not the same as just stopping of course and when you are a real non smoker , smoking just becomes irrelevant. it just no longer applies, like any of the things you used to do but just don’t do that anymore.
When you were growing up and your feet grew too big for your shoes, those shoes really began to squeeze and to pinch. You didn’t have to give up wearing those shoes, it’s just that they were beginning to squeeze and to pinch that you grew out of them and stopped using them. The shoe just doesn’t fit anymore. And you have heard of the straw that broke the camels back. One straw on top of all the ones that went before was enough to do all the damage. You never know which cigarette will do the damage , it could be one you hurry over or it could be the one you sit down with and take time over. Which one on top of all the others that went before starts a chain reaction?
