Health impacts of smoking

Smoking is a deadly and dangerous habit. The detrimental health effects of smoking are well documented in the medical literature, and are also well known to the general public. Smoking increases your risk for:Doctor holding sign - Stop Smoking hypnosis in Indianapolis

  • Cancer – all types!

  • Heart attacks

  • Lung and heart disease

  • Stroke

  • Bone fractures

Even though most people are aware of the negative health effects associated with smoking, many smokers are unable to quit the habit due to the powerful addicting properties of nicotine and other hazardous chemicals contained in cigarettes. If traditional smoking cessation methods, such as nicotine lozenges, patches, chewing gum or quitting “cold turkey,” have failed to help you kick the habit, hypnosis is an option to help you permanently quit smoking. No matter how long you have been smoking, or how much you smoke, you can quit without anxiety, irritability or cravings using hypnosis.

People often become non-smokers after just one hypnosis session. Smoking cessation hypnosis can help slow or even reverse the effects of this deadly habit.

Scientific studies support the use of hypnosis for smoking cessation

Fortunately, scientific studies have shown that hypnosis is one of the most effective ways to quit smoking. In 2007, a study was presented at the annual meeting of the American College of Chest Physicians showing that hypnosis was more than twice as effective as quitting “cold turkey” and over three times as effective as nicotine replacement therapy. A University of Washington study showed hypnosis has a 90.6% success rate helping smokers quit this habit.
