Hypnotherapy can help you identify the triggers, stressors and routines that cause you to reach for cigarettes, and reduce their power over you. Imagine the freedom you will feel, the time and money you will save, and the vitality you will regain when you no longer have the insistent urge to smoke.

Once you've finished your last cigarette, the following changes will occur:


  • Within 20 minutes, your blood pressure and pulse rate will decrease and circulation to your extremities will improve.

  • Within 8 hours, the carbon monoxide level in your blood will normalize, restoring its ability to carry oxygen and returning your blood oxygen level to normal.

  • At 24 hours, your risk of having a heart attack will decrease.

  • At 48 hours, your ability to smell and taste will improve as nerve endings repair themselves.

  • Between 2 weeks and 3 months, your circulation will continue to improve so walking becomes easier. Phlegm production will have decreased so airways will be clearer.

  • Within several months, you will have significant improvement in lung function, so fatigue and shortness of breath decrease.

  • In 1 year, risk of coronary heart disease and heart attack will have reduced to half that of a smoker.

  • Between 5 and 15 years, your risk of having a stroke returns to that of a non-smoker.

  • In 10 years, your risk of lung cancer will drop, along with your risk of cancer of the mouth, throat, esophagus, bladder, kidney and pancreas.

  • In 15 years, your risk of coronary heart disease and heart attack will be similar to that of people who have never smoked. Your mortality rate will be comparable to a non-smoker’s.

Those are the health benefits. Aesthetically, your skin will become healthier and age more slowly, your teeth will stay whiter and you’ll stop exacerbating the crow’s feet at the corners of your eyes. You’ll feel better and look better. So are you ready to quit once and for all? If so, hypnotherapy can provide invaluable support in eliminating cigarettes from your life.
