We all know how deadly tobacco can be. Government statistics indicate that smoking will claim the lives of almost half a million people a year each year. That comes to almost 1,300 deaths per day, and tobacco addiction will likely take 10 years off your life, and severely compromise your health for as long as you live.
Almost as important is to consider the cost of the cigarettes. At $5 a pack, anyone who smokes a pack a day is spending more than $1,800 a year on a habit that will only become more expensive down the road, given the cost of medical care and lost time at work. The persistent smell on your clothing and in your car is more perceptible than you know. The social implications are amazing given the thousands who die each year from second-hand smoke. Then consider what smoking does to your lungs.
There are pharmaceutical treatments for this addiction, including Chantix, which has a list of side effects that includes nausea, vomiting, and worse yet, suicidal thoughts or actions. Given that this treatment offers only a 44% success rate, how effective is this treatment?
If you have thought about the use of transdermal patches to conquer your smoking habit, you probably know about the list of side effects, which includes dizziness, nausea, and swelling in the feet and/or ankles. I would also point out that one of the great things about hypnotherapy is that you can use the power of your subconscious mind to avoid gaining weight, a common problem associated with kicking the habit.
Fortunately I can offer a 95% success rate in helping my clients kick the habit. Although some take a little more effort, many of my clients are able to quit smoking for good after only three sessions.
