- Knowledge and Experience
Before you try hypnosis, the hypnotherapist that will be helping you throughout the entire process has to know why you smoke and what triggers it. Some smoke as a way to relieve pressure or stress while others use it to boost their confidence. Keep in mind thought that you don’t have to smoke when the pressure is building up or you want to show who you really are.
After speaking with the hypnotist who determines that this method has a good chance to help you give up your addiction, the next step is your actual session where you will relax and be guided into a trance state. Some people fall asleep while others claim that they are able to hear the hypnotist the entire time but the important thing is that you will be able to control your urge of lighting that next cigarette.
It’s during this relaxed state that various hypnotic suggestions are provided several times so that you will give up the habit for good. The suggestions given are often rephrased or reworded to address different areas discussed during your initial consultation. This continues until the client is taken out of the hypnotic trance state.
How effective it is varies but most people will quit smoking after their very first session with the remainder of the quit smoking for life sessions used to reinforce this positive life change.
What Happens When Cigarette Tobacco Burns?
When smoking a cigarette, the tobacco is changed.
The formation of ash and smoke is the result of this change.
Burning is also known as “combustion”.
Definition of Combustion
Three items are necessary for combustion to occur:
• oxygen; and
• fuel (e.g. cigarettes).
Oxygen is present in the air we breathe. (typically 21%)
Combustion is referred to as a chemical reaction.
Here is an example of a chemical reaction: a nail getting rusty (the metal oxidizes in the presence of oxygen).
Did you know?
When smoking , a cigarette can reach temperatures as high as 900°C.
Combustion modifies the order and organization of atoms in chemicals.
Order and organization
• and more…
• Hydrogen Cyanide
• Carbon Monoxide
• and more…
There are more than 2,500 chemicals in tobacco. During combustion, these are transformed into more than 4,000 chemicals, over 70 of which are carcinogenic. It is important to remember that most of the chemicals in smoke are different from those in tobacco! These new chemicals are formed because of combustion (burning). Smoke is a mixture of gases and suspended particles.
