These days smokers are always hearing or reading “No.” Whether it’s in the workplace, a favorite restaurant, or the smoker’s own house, “Not in here!” is getting more and more frequent.
But even though these smokers know that smoking indoors is hazardous to their health and others’, many of America’s estimated 4.5 million adult smokers can’t help feeling like a bad child who’s always being punished. Maybe you’re one of them.
But wait! Aren’t you at least thinking about quitting? Then maybe it’s time to re-program this “deprivation” into an opportunity.
This is not some New-Age mumbo-jumbo suggestion. On the contrary, it’s derived from a scientific study just published in the American Journal of Public Health. The researchers found that workers whose employers enforced a non-smoking policy at work doubled their likelihood of successfully quitting.
And on a more personal level, those smokers who decided not to smoke in their homes were almost 10 times as likely to be successful quitters as smokers in homes where smoking was permitted.
So, choosing not to smoke in your own home not only decreases the amount you smoke and the hazardous effects on others around you, it will help you quit!
That’s what we mean about changing your thinking. If you think of not smoking at home as an opportunity, you’ve changed two major aspects in progress toward becoming a non-smoker: you’ve changed your behavior and you’ve changed your thinking.
Changing your thinking from the negative to the positive feels a whole lot better too. Instead of focusing on “I can’t smoke here,” and all the similar “I can’t”s, you’ll be thinking “I am choosing to make my home smoke-free.”
In effect, you’ll be positively re-programming your mind. After all, you spent many years as a non-smoker; you had to be programmed to smoke. So now you can re-program positively not to smoke — at least in certain places at the beginning.
One of the most effective ways to de-program the smoking mindset and re-program the non-smoker back into your mind is through clinical hypnosis. Again, we’re not pushing any magic on you. Clinical hypnosis is not the stuff of silly stage shows.
Clinical hypnosis has been recognized as a valuable technique for helping change your mindset and your behavior by both the American Medical Association and the British Medical Association since the 1950s.
Moreover, hypnosis is not only a mainstream method for altering your mindset, it’s extremely effective for quitting smoking. In fact, multi-session hypnosis has about a 66% success rate, far higher than any other method!
So, start by doing some Self-Hypnosis on your own. Begin thinking, “I want a smoke-free home; I like how much cleaner and healthier it is now that I don’t smoke in here.” We bet you’ll next be saying, “Look what I’ve accomplished! I thought I’d never be able to stand not smoking in the house, but I achieved it — and it wasn’t at all as hard as I thought it’d be!”
And once you’re ready to quit for good, consider the effectiveness of hypnosis. We urge you to ensure that you have a reputable Hypnotherapist, but if you can’t locate one that’s affordable, consider audio hypnosis as an alternative.
