stop smoking


With Sue’s Harmony Hypnotherapy you’ll find it’s easy to stop smoking…

Hypnosis works to remove these beliefs, to break the associations.

Once these beliefs are gone so are the cravings.

Some people prefer to cut down after the 1st session, and give up completely after the 2nd session, but most people find it easy to Stop Smoking Immediately.

The 2nd and 3rd sessions are to reinforce your decision to stop smoking, permanently and with relatively no cravings or weight gain,

I look forward to hearing from you.

The STOP SMOKING Action Plan

To stop smoking you need to address three separate areas. There is the addiction, the effect of the nicotine, the false beliefs about smoking, and the situations that act as triggers to remind you to light up.

The Physical Habit

The physical addiction of nicotine is actually quite mild. People often have self fulfilling beliefs about how addictive tobacco is and how difficult it will be to give up. Therefore the first part of the therapy is aimed at showing you how easy it is give up, and giving you post hypnotic instructions about how you will feel after you throw away your cigarettes.

Beliefs about smoking

The therapy focuses on your beliefs about the role that smoking plays in your life. Smokers often are convinced that they cannot relax without a cigarette, or that their best ideas only come when smoking, and other self justifying beliefs. These beliefs are removed with a mixture of direct hypnotic suggestion and metaphor therapy. If you start smoking again it is not because you need the nicotine. It is because some part of your mind believes that you cannot function without cigarettes and actually doesn't want you to stop smoking.

Situational Triggers

For the long term smoker, all sorts of situations have become associated with smoking. Most smokers tell themselves that they enjoy a cigarette after a meal, with a drink, to give themselves a break. These are all highly charged situations and the smoker has created powerful conditioned responses to these.

Hypnosis is used to reinforce your ability to gain the same benefits, like giving yourself a break, without smoking. By using this three-part approach smoking gets beaten for ever


Stopping smoking is all about inner beliefs and feelings. Most people started smoking in late teens.

At that time most people felt smoking helped them fit in, to be a rebel, to look cool, to get through new situations, and their mind formed powerful connections between smoking and feeling good, and your mind forms strong links between what you are doing and how you are feeling.

The result is you built an automatic link, an unconscious association.

That is why smoking is so hard for some people to give up. Their mind fights desperately against stopping smoking because they think they can’t relax or be confident without it. That is what cravings are, your mind's desperate attempts to get you to start smoking again so that you will get back those feelings you need. . If you believe that you cannot handle stress without a cigarette then the pressure will build until you take one.
