Stop smoking for good with the power of hypnotherapy
Did you know that you’re ten times more likely to quit smoking and never worry about relapse with hypnotherapy? Imagine walking away from cigarettes without a second thought – no desire to ‘just finish the packet’ or ‘quit at the end of the week’. How good would it feel to quit? To breathe easily, watch your skin quality improve and your energy increase?
There’s a reason quitting is so hard. The compulsion to smoke comes from your subconscious mind, not your rational conscious mind. But your subconscious mind doesn’t respond to logic – which is why the increased risk of lung cancer is little incentive to quit.
With hypnosis, we can influence your subconscious mind using positive suggestions and therapies. Your HypnoFit® therapist will work with you to find out what feelings and emotions you associate with smoking and learn about your habits. With this understanding, they will create a plan for the moments, hours and days where cravings kick in.
“I'm 52, and I've been smoking since I was 15 years old. In the last ten years, I've been smoking at least a pack a day. Since doing the hypno, I'm a week into my journey now being smoke-free. I haven't felt like a cigarette. I don't want a cigarette. I was pretty sceptical at the start; you know, smoke and mirrors and all that, but it's worked for me, and I'm not questioning it now. I'm just moving ahead.”
“I didn't want to smoke any more. It was something that was controlling my life in every aspect. If I ever intended to have children, I wouldn't want that to be a carryover for them as well. Also, for the people around me, I didn't want to keep smoking. It's expensive and bad for my health in every way. This is the first step to me becoming a non-smoker for the rest of my life.”
“I wasn't sure if I believed in, to be honest. But I wanted to give something a try because I wanted to give up smoking, for my children in particular. The first session was great. I found it fairly easy - easier than I thought. The tasks I was given over the two weeks were a real eye-opener for me. I wasn't sure how I would deal or cope with it, but I surprised myself. After my last session, I feel really good. I'm just so happy to be where I am today. I have no desire to smoke at all.”
“I came to see Christan for hypnotherapy so that I could quit smoking. I'd been smoking for about 45 years. And, hypnotherapy does work. I would recommend it to anyone. I'd tried to quit smoking many times through different therapies - acupunctures; you name it. I've got a few mates lined up for hypnotherapy with Christian, and I truly recommend it.”

Frequently Asked Questions
Anyone! Most people who smoke know it’s a bad habit, and most smokers would like to stop. Smokers know that smoking is terrible for their health, costs an awful lot of money and is becoming an increasingly anti-social habit.
Hypnotherapy is the best approach for anyone looking for a safe, natural and effective way to stop smoking for good.
You’re probably already aware of the dangers of smoking and here because you’ve decided to take charge of your health.
If you need a reason to quit smoking, there are many. Cigarettes contain substances that are harmful to your health. The tar that gets sucked into your lungs contains more than 4,000 chemicals, many of which are cancer causing or harmful in other ways, and these go to various parts of your body via your bloodstream.
Although some people smoke to reduce stress, that effect comes largely from the nicotine, an addictive drug that causes craving and other withdrawal symptoms when you try to stop smoking. The stress-relieving effect is short-lived and, longer term, smoking tends to increase stress levels.
The carbon monoxide that smokers take in reduces the level of oxygen in the blood, reducing energy levels and causing shortness of breath.
What’s more, cigarette smoking is a costly activity! Anyone who smokes a pack a day spends thousands each year on cigarettes. And this expensive habit will only become more costly with time, given the medical care required. Not to mention that you’re contributing to the issues caused by second-hand smoke.
Imagine how much you could save and how much healthier you would feel if you quit. There are so, so many benefits to quitting smoking!
Hypnotherapy is a cost-effective, long-lasting solution that brings an inner calm you won’t ever find in a pack of cigarettes.
You’re a smoker who wants to quit and have tried the Nicorette patches. You’ve tried going cold turkey and any number of natural remedies that supposedly suppress those cravings that itch at you every day. Yet, surprise-surprise, none of them worked, or at least not in the long term.
Why? Smoking is an addiction, and while traditional treatments address the chemical nature of that addiction, they fail to treat the root cause, which is found in the subconscious. Quit smoking hypnotherapy is different for this exact reason.
While our conscious mind is geared toward logic, the subconscious doesn’t respond to logic. So, regardless of the overwhelming evidence that smoking causes cancer, heart disease and brings about many other negative effects, the compulsion to have another is driven by the emotional response, as opposed to the potential risks.
When smoking is used as a means to release anxiety and stress or to suppress appetite, the subconscious calls for it over and over again.
This learned behaviour typically stems from an experience or first response to a similar situation. Given the addictive nature of Nicotine, it can be challenging for a smoker to say no and suffer through their specific emotional state.
Hypnotherapy is so effective because it addresses the root cause of your cravings and urges to smoke.
At Hypnofit, our therapists first try to find out why you want to stop smoking and learn about your habits so that they can target the treatment to your specific needs.
Throughout the process, we seek to understand the feelings or emotions you associate with smoking, such as stress release. We also encourage you to identify beneficial substitute activities that could result in the same payoff.
The end goal is to create a practical and realistic plan for the coming moments, hours and days.
We want you to be prepared when the cravings kick in and inclined to opt for a healthier alternative without a second thought. To achieve the latter, we use hypnosis to help you form negative associations with smoking and positive associations with your new healthy activity.
Nicotine patches and gum are the most common yet primarily ineffective ways of fighting cigarette cravings, as most smokers have discovered.
The intensity of cravings for cigarettes has more to do with the psychosocial element of smoking than with the physiological effects of nicotine as an addictive chemical, according to 2010 research by Tel Aviv University.
A report published in The New Scientist, produced by Schmidt and Viswesvaran of the University of Iowa, concluded after an exhaustive study of 600 other research projects covering some 70,000 people (including 48 studies of hypnosis covering 6,000 people) that…
