Is hypnosis to stop smoking safe?
Often when you have seen a stage hypnosis show or watched some TV shows about hypnosis, there can be some fears and concerns that you won’t be in control or will be manipulated during hypnosis. However, though that may sometimes be true in the world of hypnosis entertainment, hypnosis as used in a stop smoking session is very different indeed. A hypnotherapist is a trained professional who will only work for your best interests and support your health, growth and wellbeing. When you go to a hypnotherapist for a hypnosis session to stop smoking or for anything else, s/he will not be in control, but you will be. They will only do what you allow and give consent for. During a hypnosis ‘trance’, though you may have your eyes closed, you will in fact be able to hear what is going on and able to open your eyes anytime. You will not be under any sort of ‘spell’. In fact it will simply feel as if you are in a deep feeling of relaxation.
What Is hypnosis to stop smoking?
Hypnosis can be defined as an changed state of awareness in which, to an observer you appear to be asleep. You are deeply relaxed though not in state of sleep.

There is some debate about how hypnosis works. Some believe that when you undergo hypnosis, you relax and your focus is narrowed so that you concentrate more, and then your subconscious mind is more willing to listen to suggestions, for example to stop smoking.
Even though you look like you in a trance during hypnosis to stop smoking, you are not asleep or unconscious. You are very much aware of your surroundings, and, as mentioned, despite what some stage hypnotists may claim, you cannot be coerced to do anything against your natural instincts, will or moral code. In fact, brain tests performed on people during hypnosis have shown a high level of neurological activity, with no sign that they were unconscious or unaware.
Hypnosis to stop smoking sessions
During hypnosis to stop smoking, I might ask a client to imagine unpleasant results from smoking. For example, as a stop smoking hypnotherapist, I can use visualisations that help someone think about cigarette smoke smelling like a truck exhaust or that smoking will leave their mouth feeling extremely dry and unpleasant.
One popular method of hypnosis to stop smoking focuses on three main ideas:
- Smoking cigarettes brings poisons into the body
- You need your body to live and thrive
- You must gain respect for your body, protecting it for being the precious gift that it is.
It is common for stop smoking hypnotherapists to teach smokers self-hypnosis. This empowering and useful tool ensures the good work done during a hypnosis session is carried on at home. It may include some visualisations that can be utilised anytime the desire to smoke reoccurs.
Does hypnosis to stop smoking work?
Hypnosis, in general, works for the majority of people. However a very low number of people simply can’t be hypnotized. Yet from my years of experience, either none of those people have called me or I’m very good at guiding people into a trance! I say this since I have yet to have a client I have not successfully guided into a hypnosis trance. Indeed for hypnosis to stop smoking to be successful, only a light trance is needed. This level of trance is similar to daydreaming or the focused concentration you experience when reading a book or captivated by an exciting movie. As with any therapy, it is always important to bear in mind that success also will vary from person to person.
