You may believe that the only reason you continue to smoke is due to the nicotine addiction and the chemical dependency. In fact, there are other factors to consider and support is available to stop smoking in Brighton with hypnotherapy at The Conway Practice, where all the underlying issues will be explored.*
The smoking habit is notoriously difficult to break and there are several compelling reasons behind its tenacious hold. Understanding these factors is crucial for those who want to quit and the holistic, therapeutic intervention with hypnosis is the first step towards becoming a non-smoker.*
Smoking often becomes ingrained in daily routines and socialising. You may well associate cigarettes with various activities, such as taking a work break, having a cup of coffee or meeting friends for a drink. Smokers often turn to cigarettes as a way to manage their emotions, creating a powerful psychological link between smoking and emotional well-being. Breaking these associations can be emotionally challenging and often requires significant effort and adjustment. During hypnotherapy sessions with Jonathan Conway, new coping mechanisms to manage stress and anxiety can be introduced while your non-conscious mind is open and receptive to positive suggestion.*
Social factors also play a significant role in sustaining the smoking habit. Peer pressure, the normalisation of smoking in certain social circles and the desire to fit in can make it difficult to quit, as you may fear the loss of social connections. A lack of self-confidence may also be a factor if you feel more at ease holding a cigarette, especially while in the company of fellow smokers. Hypnotherapy to quit smoking provides support by taking all issues into consideration and replacing negative beliefs with positive affirmations.* Relaxation methods and distraction techniques can be used to reduce the initial nicotine cravings and help to break the smoking dependence.*
