Stoptober kicks off on 1st October. Over 1 million people have taken part in the campaign since its launch.
Smoking is the biggest cause of preventable deaths in England and nearly 80,000 people die of it every year. 1.5 million people have a smoking related disease (NHS).
In reality, statistics like this don't really have a huge impact on smokers. In my hypnotherapy practice the issues that drive clients to stop are usually quoted as:
- my health is actually being affected - I am out of breath, less fit and coughing
- the cost is getting difficult to manage
- my teeth are becoming discoloured
- it smells
- it is making me look older than I am
- it's no longer doing anything for me - its just a habit now that I don't really enjoy
If you smoke 20 cigarettes a day and you stop smoking on 16th October, by Christmas you will have saved £700!
If you feel ready to quit, try hypnotherapy. It is easy, pleasant and effective. Two things are required: 1 - you need to want to stop (I'm not bothered if you think it will be difficult or you are not sure if you can - I will deal with those in the session). 2 - you still need a bit of will -power. I can't take away that last little bit of free will but I will get as close as I possibly can!
I am a Certified Smoking Cessation Specialist (Cert SCS). I am a Senior Qualified Specialist on the Central Register of Stop Smoking and the Fylde therapist for National Stop Smoking Centres.
