Frequently Asked Questions
Most people have false beliefs about what hypnosis is or "IF" they can be hypnotized. Here are the top Frequently Asked Questions and concerns that people ask before using hypnosis to stop smoking.
Does it work for everybody?In the past over 85% stop smoking or drastically reduce smoking after the first session. We do recommend listening to the hypnosis tape for reinforcement. The bottom line is this... if you are ready to stop, this will work. If you are not ready, your mind will override whatever "programming" hypnosis can provide. It "helps" you stop, it doesn't stop for you.
I don't think I can be hypnotized.Scientifically, only idiots and mentally challenged people cannot be hypnotized. If you are reading this, you have the focus needed to experience the state of mind called "hypnosis." Usually, the person with the "strongest mind" is the quickest to realize hypnosis can work for them, because they are still "in control" while they are changing beliefs about smoking.
Will I gain weight when this works?If you start to eat more food than your body needs, you will gain weight. The only people that gain weight are those that "substitute" fat based foods for nicotine. You will be programmed to breathe air and relax instead of eating or smoking. Most smokers are overweight anyway, so the cigarettes are obviously NOT keeping you thin. The goal is to get healthy. Smoking is not healthy.
I don't ever want to "lose control" over my mind.Most people remember every word during the hypnosis session. Your unconscious mind has a built in "security mechanism" designed to make sure you are not programmed to do anything that is unethical or bad for you. Usually, the person with the "strongest mind" is the quickest to realize hypnosis can work for them, because they are still "in control" while they are changing beliefs about smoking.
Hypnosis is against my religious beliefs.Alpha is the natural "state of mind" that every human being passes through while going to sleep or waking up. Hypnosis is nothing more than a fancy word for keeping you in the alpha state because you are more receptive to positive programming. Unless your religion wants you to die of lung cancer, hypnosis is perfectly fine and completely safe.
Will I remember everything or will I be "blacked out?"Most people remember every word during the hypnosis session. Unless you fall asleep, you will be alert, but drowsy during the session. If you do fall asleep, the stop smoking programming will still take effect.
What if it works, but then I start again a few months later.
First, define your definition of quitting. Anything over 21 days in a row forms a new "habit". So, if you stop smoking more than three weeks... you are a non-smoker. If you decide to start the habit all over again, that's your decision. If you do that, just listen to the tape program again. If it works once, it will work again for you.
What if it works, but I have a cigarette once in a while.The purpose of this program is to give you the freedom. Many social drinkers and social smokers can go for months between "experiences." Once you 'break the habit', one cigarette here and there should just be a one-time thing. Again, who is in control... you or the cigarettes? One night of smoking does not addict anyone.
