Quit Trying To Quit Smoking
When new clients come in to see me the first thing I want to know from them is if they are ready to quit trying to quit smoking. Most people that come into my office intend to use hypnosis to stop an unwanted habit such as smoking. They also have tried other methods before deciding on hypnosis. They have failed in the past and one of the reasons that I attribute to those failures is that they where “trying”. The truly successful individuals that leave my office as non-smokers are the ones that are finished trying to quit and have decided to become a non-smoker. After all, they where a non-smoker long before they became a smoker. We can not accomplish anything if all we are doing is trying.
To make this concept understandable you must first understand what the word try means. By definition the word try means the following:
1. Make an effort to do or accomplish (something); attempt: tried to ski.
2. To taste, sample, or otherwise test in order to determine strength, effect, worth, or desirability: Try this casserole. Try the door.
As you can see there is nothing about the word try that equals success. I do not want my clients to try, I want them to succeed. In order for this to occur they must have in their mind the right words for success. They must have in their minds the right commands to achieve their desired outcome. Once you get your mind hearing and understanding the words that truly reflect your desired outcome you can succeed.
Most clients after having a hypnotic session to become a non smoker will often say that if they knew it would be this easy they would have quit years ago. I will normally tell them that if they where truly ready to quit years ago it would have been that easy then also. One thing that is important to know about hypnosis is that it is not mind control. When you are in hypnosis you are in control and in a heightened state of awareness. You can not be made to do anything against your will or that you do not want to do. The effectiveness of a hypnotic session rides squarely on the shoulders of the individual being hypnotised. If the words “I’m going to try to quit”, as apposed to, “I’m going to quit”, are in their mind then the outcome will be a try, an attempt or effort, not a commitment to succeed. This is why I want all my clients to quit trying to quit smoking….and do it!
