Have you seen the Department of Healths hard hitting campaign, where there is a Cancerous tumour growing inside a cigerette? It’s very graphic and is launched in response to smokers who think that the health risks are greatly exagerated.
If you’re a smoker its likely that you will quickly turn away from it as it is pretty gross, or like the smoker in the advert, pop outside for a well earned fag.
As an ex smoker, I know how hard people THINK it is to stop smoking. You’re ADDICTED to it, you can’t STOP yourself etc etc. The truth is, it isn’t difficult to stop smoking, you just have to want to do it. Usually something will trigger you to stop, whatever that may be is down to you. Most smokers wish they were non smokers. Of course there are the die hards who insist they love every fag they take, fine, see you in Hospital.
Does it look familiar, propped up outside the back door in all weathers, cold, lighting up and taking in that big inhale, seeing the grey noxious smoke billowing around you? Most smokers hate the smell of smoke, no matter how many times you scrub your hands, spray perfume and chew mints the smoke smell will still be there as it permeates through your SKIN. How can it not when you are inhaling poisonous smoke into the very core of your being?
A friend of mine contracted the Norovirus over Christmas along with a terrible chest and lung infection. As a smoker this was doubly worse as her lungs were smoke damaged and her recovery has been laborious. She has been in complete agony with bruised ribs and lungs through coughing so hard, amongst other unsalubrious symptoms. My smoker friends never ask me for help funnily enough, only when they need it, as was now in this case. She realised the damage she had some to herself and as a young mum didn’t want any repercussions that her past smoking habits can bring. I’m happy to report she hasn’t had a cigarette in 12 days and recovering well.
What will it take you to realise you need to/want to stop? Whatever it is, don’t let it be too late. Stopping smoking with hypnosis is one of the easiest ways to give up. The body starts to repair itself within hours and you can begin to feel better immediately. You can see my website and blog page for further details and my Stop Smoking New Year offer.
Don’t let it be too late for you, you can stop smoking anytime you want, it will be easier than you think.
