At District Hypnosis, we recognize that you have already been hypnotized – into becoming a smoker. Your smoking habit is a subconscious behavior rooted in the erroneous belief that smoking brings pleasure. Nicotine is a stimulant, yet you think it’s relaxing. (The truth is, the cigarette does not help relieve stress, it only relieves the stress caused by the nicotine craving.) You’ve been convinced that quitting has to be a miserable ordeal with suffering, agitation, overwhelming cravings and emotional turmoil. It doesn’t have to be. We will work with you to change these perceptions and prove it through your own success! Just as the power of your own mind programmed you into becoming a smoker, it has the power to re-boot your mindset back to non-smoker.
Do you remember your first cigarette? Did it really taste good? Seriously. Did you really relax as you felt it fill up your lungs? Or were you just trying not to choke on it? And what about now? Do you ever smoke because you “need” a cigarette? Do you really think of yourself as an “addict”?
