How to Quit Smoking Tips with Hypnosis – Session Two

How to Quit Smoking Tips with Hypnosis – Session Two

 

Last week we talked about how to quit smoking tips with hypnosis and went over how I do a Client Intake and First Session.  Today, let’s see what the second session brings.

  Session Two

When our new Non-Smoker comes in on Week Two, he’s usually looking very good and feeling good.  Many clients come in with difficult and noisy breathing. They even sometimes wheeze with every breath.  Some have sallow looking skin.  This is because smoking reduces your veins, arteries and capillaries and less blood makes it out to the skin.  After week of no cigarettes, I can see a change in a person’s skin  tone; it pinks up.  And if their breathing was compromised, you can hear the difference with every breath.

This means that Week Two is an important one.  A person can feel the physical changes and they can understand now the importance of what they are accomplishing.

   What Happens Now

Now, I want to know how your week went.  Did you do your homework of Anchored Breathing?  How did that help your overall stress from quitting?  Did you smoke at all?  If so, where and under what circumstances?  If not, great!  Tell me when you had the most trouble.  Who were you with and what happened?  How did you get over it?

All these questions help me to formulate a picture of your week and your remaining relationship with cigarettes.  Then I know where to spend time during hypnosis.  We want to reinforce the idea that you are now a permanent Non-Smoker.  That those times of stress are in the past and you feel neutral about them now.  Just as you don’t really notice the hum of the refrigerator, it just plays in the background of your day,  so can the diminishing cravings for cigarettes just play in the background.

   Zeroing in on Problem Spots

Maybe you actually took a few puffs during the week, it happens.  We will discuss those times and what was the trigger so that I can remove that trigger.  You may need extra work around situations that arose that we didn’t cover.  We’ll look at those situations carefully and turn them around for you.  You can be the person who just doesn’t do that anymore. Just doesn’t smoke anymore.  Smoking is something you used to do.

  Hypnosis

It’s time for Hypnosis.  I’ll lead you into that very relaxed state once more.  This time I’ll be asking you to center in on your particular stressors and overcome those to become very relaxed.  That is very easy to do in Hypnosis.  Your Subconscious Mind wants to coordinate the very relaxed feeling of Hypnosis with the usual stressful feeling of cravings and habits with cigarettes. As we practice being relaxed in Hypnosis, your Subconscious Mind says, “OK, we have this new reaction to this problem.”  And it will embrace that.

Tapping

This week I’ll also teach you Tapping, another calming technique that’s very effective in calming strong reactions or cravings.  It’s also great on physical pain.  It can take that pain level down in a couple of minutes.  I remember a client who came in for weight loss but she was in constant pain from fibromyalgia.  As I taught her the technique we used her pain in that moment as a test for Tapping.  She was astounded that in about two minutes of my Tapping and two minutes of her echoing me, her was gone.  She took on tapping each day as part of her home treatment!

This is the end of Session Two.  You learned Tapping to cope with stress and cravings.  And we did a hypnosis to close up any gaps in our week one work.  Next time I’ll describe Week Three and Spinning.
