Hypnotherapy, NLP and Quitting Smoking

When you are addicted your body needs that drug, whether it is nicotine alcohol or cocaine. There is a connection between a habit and an addiction. A smoker will reach for a cigarette at certain key times. Possibly a habit after a meal. Having a drink with friends. Hypnotherapy, or a programme using our ‘hypnochange’ approach, is a very effective way of helping you to overcome those habits/ addictions that interfere with your life.

What is important to note is that it started a pattern of behaviour and is now ingrained in your mind. You can break that pattern and change that habit and overcome the addiction need that is attached. OK, you know that smoking is bad for you.
