I had one client who smoked to relax. She was convinced that nicotine helped her relieve anxiety. With education regarding nicotine’s stimulant effects, she surely could give up smoking. She had to learn some coping strategies to manage stress and realize in her own hypnosis that nicotine is a stimulant. Stimulants have the opposite effect. When she had the info that nicotine may not help her to relax, her motivation to give up smoking increased. Another client had emphysema. She had a solid motivation to quit, but was lonely. When strategies were found to assist her to be around people more, her motivation increased and she is currently nicotine free. In conclusion, to enhance your motivation to stop, speak with a hypnotherapist right away.
