If you are someone that has been smoking a long time, you will know that it is difficult for you to get through a few hours without a cigarette and that the very thought of not having your smoke can leave you feeling anxious and yet, the fact remain that the habit is slowly destroying your body and that eventually, you are going to get very sick from your smoking habit which is why you have to do everything in your power to give up the habit of smoking no matter how hard it may seem. It certainly is not an easy thing to do and once you start the process, it is likely going to be one of the hardest times in your life and yet, it is vital that you do.
The necessity of professional help
For some people, quitting the habit of smoking is a breeze but for most people, it is extremely difficult and you might even need to seek out professional rehabilitation to help you to quit smoking. Hypnosis is a technique that is commonly used to help people to break the habit and although it is unclear how the process and therapy work, it has been seen to work with some people.
Usually, hypnotherapy in Sydney would cause the person to go in to a trance and during this state, the doctor will tell the person to imagine the consequences of smoking and the dangers of it. This sometimes can make a person quit the habit immediately.
Prepare for the day
Many people quit the habit by reducing the number of smokes they take in a day but this is not the best technique. The best way is to quit completely and although this is going to be difficult for you over a period of a week or two, it is the best way to teach your body that you no longer need it. Plan the day out properly because the withdrawal symptoms will hit you just hours after you have had your last smoke and they will continue to get worse until they hit a peak at about forty eight hours after you have quit. You need to have other things that will pacify you during this time such as lots of food, treats, movies and such. Use this as a chance to spend some money on yourself and buy yourself everything you love to eat as you will feel intense hunger during this week as well as anxiety, sudden depression and anger. Your body will not know how to react but it will pass.
