Quit Smoking Today!Tobacco is Classified as a “Gateway” Drug The American Lung Association states that adolescents (12-17 years old) who reported having smoked in the past thirty days were three times as likely to use alcohol, eight times as likely to smoke marijuana, and twenty-two times as likely to use cocaine, within that time period than adolescents who have not smoked tobacco in the past thirty days. Tobacco is classified as a “gateway” drug and therefore adolescent smokers are more likely to begin drinking alcohol and using illicit drug than non-smoking adolescents. While smoking tobacco the smoker will feel a “high” such as a tingly feeling, feeling light headed, and/or feeling more relaxed. This “high” does not last for long and as the smoker becomes addicted they are smoking so much that they do not feel any pleasure in smoking. Therefore this leads to the adolescent drinking alcohol, smoking marijuana, using cocaine, and other illicit drugs. Recently posted on Facebook:
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 correcting the client’s beliefs about how easy it is give up, and giving the client post hypnotic instructions about how they will feel after they throw away their cigarettes.
This is reinforced by teaching a replacement behaviour. Psychology studies show if an existing behaviour is associated with a new physical behaviour, the old behaviour rapidly goes into extinction, and the desire to do that behaviour fades away as well. So this part of the treatment consists of teaching you a new physical response to use any time the desire to smoke occurs. This new response gives you something to do with your hands, it takes the place of the cigarette until the link between stress and reaching for a cigarette is broken, and then the behaviour fades away with disuse.
Beliefs about smoking
The second part of 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. In extreme cases clients believe that smoking defines who they are, and that quitting smoking somehow will diminish them. These beliefs are removed with a mixture of direct hypnotic suggestion and metaphor therapy.
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 create new mental associations with meals, breaks, coffee, driving – whatever it is that the ex-smoker associates with smoking.
By using this three-part approach smoking gets beaten for ever.
