Hypnotherapy in Brighton & Hove can help you stop smokingAt the Conway Practice, hypnotherapy to quit smoking looks beyond the nicotine addiction with a holistic approach which explores the subconscious triggers related to ritualistic dependence.* The hand-to-mouth habit is a significant factor that makes quitting smoking particularly challenging. This repetitive action becomes deeply ingrained in a smoker’s daily routine, creating a powerful emotional and physical association that is hard to break.

You may well have developed a routine where the act of bringing a cigarette to your mouth becomes second nature without any conscious awareness. This habit can be soothing and provides a sense of comfort and security. When trying to quit, the absence of this familiar motion can lead to feelings of restlessness and discomfort, making it difficult to resist the urge to smoke. This is also closely linked to the emotional aspect of addiction. Smoking often serves as a coping mechanism for stress, anxiety, or boredom. The physical act can provide a temporary distraction or a way to channel nervous energy. Without this outlet, you may find that you struggle to find alternative methods to manage your emotions, increasing the likelihood of relapse, with disappointment and a sense of failure.

Behavioural conditioning can also play a crucial role. You may associate specific activities with smoking, such as after a meal, during a work break, or socialising. These situations trigger automatic responses, including the hand-to-mouth motion, creating powerful cues that can be difficult to ignore. While you are comfortable and deeply relaxed during hypnotherapy at The Conway Practice, breaking this conditioned response can be addressed and new coping mechanisms introduced, with easily practised calming methods and distraction techniques.*

Help to stop smoking with hypnosis in Brighton provides a safe and effective therapeutic intervention during which all aspects of your habit will be identified and addressed. Hypnotherapy can be a liberating experience, enabling you to finally achieve your non-smoking goal and a healthier life-style*
