EVERYTHING IS CHOICE

YOU HAVE A CHOICE

You have a choice:

  1. You avoid doing the things you enjoy and let panic and anxiety win.
  2. You take medication and still suffer as the core issues stay present.
  3. Remove the blocks, allow neurons in the brain to make healthy positive mindset changes using Hypnotherapy and mind techniques to access the non-conscious or subconscious part of the mind.

This part of the mind controls emotions and feelings, habits, involuntary body functions, creativity, developmental stages, long term memory, relationship patterns, intuition and spiritual connection. 88% of the mind is running from the nonconscious and many cannot access this without assistance.

“Can’t believe it, I got past dinas mountain bit and managed to control it!
Thank you very much for your help – with out it I’m sure we would still be there! “

This week I received a phone call whilst this person was panicking about driving home. Some years previously, they had to drive home, earlier than expected, through an unfamiliar route and during a heavy storm. They were having to hurry as they received news of a family member who was very ill and had to be by their side as soon as possible. This created a fear and the fear attached itself to storms, built up traffic and unfamiliar routes. Whenever they drove again on holiday or a long distance, panic started to increase at the thought of driving. They felt like they had to drive as no-one else could drive and if they didn’t, their family wouldn’t have a holiday to enjoy.

Once we spoke, I immediately took away the panic with Psycho-sensory techniques. This took the panic feeling away, from a 10 to a zero, but when they thought about driving home, they had feelings which they described as their stomach flipping. We spoke about the core issues of how this started. I used some other techniques with left/right brain work and tapping and vagus nerve work. Vagus nerve work increases spinal cord sympathetic neurons – post and pre-synaptic, which join peripheral sympathetic neurons.

During hypnosis, I took them into a deep trance and embedded those suggestions to keep the body calm, which keeps the autonomic nervous system working well during moments of uncertainty, so that the logic, rational mind can come into focus and decisions are made easier. Confidence builds when challenges arise and this is practiced. I embedded those suggestions with lots of post hypnotic language, which means each time they drive, no matter where they go, they will be in a calm and focused state of mind.

STOPTOBER SPECIAL

Take a moment to think, right now......are you ready

Imagine the day you give up smoking for good................now i imagine that fills you with dread and fear right now, that is because your amygdala, the fight flight response trigger in your brain is relying on nicotine (the addictive substance in tobacco) for comfort - but ask yourself, who is in control - me or amygdala, are you tough enough to challenge it,

  • if YES - Read on
  • if NO - stop reading from this point and do something else, this is only for those who wish to be healthier wealthier and happier

You still reading good, i have something special for you. here it comes

BACKGROUND INFO
The day you gave up smoking will surely rank as one of the most significant of your life, for now you can look forward to a longer life of enhanced quality. Smokers now readily accept the real threat of early death and a very significant reduction in their potential to enjoy good health and the pleasures that can bring.

During your therapy session, you had the opportunity to look realistically at what smoking has meant to you and to accept fully the responsibility to ensure that you no longer deliberately poison yourself.

Cigarettes have been responsible for the deaths of more people in the last century than all the wars and conflicts.

THE BAD NEWS

Initial Effects
In their advertising, tobacco manufacturers suggest it is 'cool' to smoke; that smokers are more adult, more sophisticated. Remember your first cigarette, how foul it tasted, how dizzy you felt. Perhaps you felt sick. You certainly did not enjoy it but, wanting to be seen as one of the crowd, more adult, more sophisticated, you persisted and became hooked.

The human body is a most wonderful and highly evolved organic machine, delicately and critically balanced.
The feelings of nausea and dizziness you felt were the natural sensations as your body reacted to the poisons you breathed in when taking that first smoke. Your body reacted by trying to expel the poisons, making you feel nauseous. The dizziness was a result of oxygen-deprivation to the brain and the coughing was your lungs' defence system trying to expel the contaminants in the smoke.

chemicals in cigarettesPoison
There are over 4,000 toxins (poisons) in tobacco smoke, with complex compounds and substances such as tar, nicotine, cyanide, arsenic, carbon monoxide, prussic acid and benzopyrene, not to mention the chemical fertilisers and insecticides sprayed onto the crop. Cyanide? Arsenic?

Actually, are you aware that nicotine is one of the most poisonous substances known to mankind? If you were to extract the nicotine from a single cigarette and inject it directly into a vein you would be dead in seconds. It is enough to kill a horse. Then there is ammonia, which is added to modify the effect of nicotine, making it easier to be absorbed into the bloodstream.

To compensate for the effects of the toxins entering the body, your arteries narrow which causes your blood pressure to rise and heart rate to increase.

Acclimatisation
However, as you persisted in smoking, your body became fooled into thinking that the noxious substances being introduced through the cigarette smoke were necessary for survival. So then your subconscious mind which controls all the body's functions began to send out signals for replenishment of the level of nicotine dropped and so we see the beginning of nicotine addiction. These messages are the craving for another cigarette — to restore the chemical balance your subconscious mind now believes is correct.

However, each time you inhale tobacco smoke, the heart beats faster and respiration increases as the need for oxygen to the brain and muscles increases. Adrenaline is produced as the body goes into a 'fight or flight' mode (the body's natural reaction to imminent danger). Lactic acid enhances the readiness of the muscles to respond rapidly to the perceived danger.

Many people claim that cigarettes help them relax, although from the evidence of the body's reactions this appears most unlikely!

In times of danger, many bodily functions close down so that the major resources available may be focussed on the fight / flight reaction. So, as the digestive system is not required, it shuts down and the blood is withdrawn from the outer extremities so that oxygen can be sent to the main internal organs to maintain them prime function (which explains why hands and feet often feel cold when smoking).

Continued smoking does not allow the body to revert from the fight / flight state to normal relaxation. The stress is constant and the body remains on alert. The enzymes that are used to enhance performance are not used in running or fighting and remain in the body as toxins. The immune system becomes suppressed and smokers become more susceptible to infections and take longer to shake off the effects of colds and viruses.

Damage
Nicotine destroys essential vitamins and minerals in the body, not the least of which is Vitamin C. Vitamin C is important for the maintenance of a healthy immune system.
Every organ of the body, including the brain and skin, can fall victim to cancer and smoking is a major culprit in the body's inability to protect itself against many killer diseases.

The Heart
A smoker's heart will beat an extra ten thousand times a day as it strives to combat the effects of nicotine. This is because nicotine causes arteries to narrow, so the heart has to work much harder to deliver oxygen to vital organs and muscles. Arteries are subject to furring up as the filth and muck is pumped around them, causing arteriosclerosis. Increased blood pressure results and there is an increase risk of heart disease and heart attack.

The Lungs
Tar in cigarette smoke coats the tiny hairs (cilia) in the lungs causing them to become brittle, break off or lie flat. As a result, they are unable to carry out their normal important function of detecting any foreign matter, such as particles of dust, which they propel back towards the mouth so they may be expelled from the body.

The mucus lining of the lungs is important in the vital interchange of gases, carbon dioxide and oxygen. Tar and other
noxious chemicals and materials in the smoke are able to pass down into the small spaces called alveoli (which make up the greater mass of the lungs) and accumulate there. By doing so, the capacity of the lungs is reduced and consequently their ability to efficiently oxygenate the blood.

This is why smokers get out of breath when they climb stairs or run for a bus.
Some smokers find that the chemical alteration of the mucus can lead to the lungs producing too much liquid and they begin to fill up and they begin to drown in their own body fluids. Emphysema is an extremely debilitating condition causing sufferers to fight for every painful breath, often with an oxygen cylinder constantly by their side.

Fertility

Smoking can effect the genetic pattern (DNA) in a male's sperm or a female's eggs. Reproductive potency is detrimentally affected. A smoker's sexual prowess will decrease at a faster rate than a non-smoker.

Life Expectancy

Every cigarette you smoke will rob you of up to six minutes of life expectancy. A 50-year-old smoker is as old physically as a 70-year-old non-smoker.

0
Die every year from smoking........

THE GOOD NEWS

After 20 minutes
Blood pressure and pulse should retum to normal. Circulation improves, especially to hands and feetquit smoking time
After 8 hours
Blood oxygen levels increase to having a heart attack start to fall
After 24 hours
Carbon monoxide leaves the body. The lungs start to clear out mucus and debris
After 48 hours
Sense of taste and smell begin to improve
After 3 days
Bronchial tubes begin to relax so breathing becomes easier and energy levels increase
2-12 weeks
Circulation improves throughout the body. Walking and exercise get easier. Lung function increases by up to 30%
3-9 months
Breathing problems, sinus congestion, coughing, shortness of breath and wheezing improve. The cilia re-grow in the lungs increasing ability to clean out the lungs, reduce mucus and reduce infection
After 5 years
Risk of having a heart attack falls to about half that of a smoker.
After 10 years
Risk of lung cancer falls to around half that of a smoker. Risk of a heart attack falls to about the same as someone who has never smoked.

Plus:

You'll look better

Your skin should start to look brighter and younger than if you had continued to smoke, because oxygen levels in your body will return to normal and circulation will improve. You'll slow the formation of wrinkles around your mouth and eyes, and your eyes themselves will probably look brighter. Staining on teeth and fingers will stop and breath, hair, clothes and home will all smell better

You'll feel better

Food will taste better. Smells will be more intense. You'll have more energy and you'll breathe more easily

You'll save money

Smoking 20 a day costs over £150 per month. Why not start thinking about what you'll do with all the extra cash?

SOLUTIONS - How do i achieve this.....

I have many techniques and methods we can use to aid you in stopping smoking, i will teach you some control methods to use on your own at home or anywhere, and i will do some hypnosis work with your sub-conscious mind. if you are worried about what hypnosis is, please read on.

What is hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy is a very pleasant and effective technique used for the treatment of many different conditions. During sessions, patients are induced into a deeply relaxed state (hypnotic trance — not unlike the way one feels whilst daydreaming) in which they remain fully aware of what is happening and cannot be made to do anything they do not want to do. Suggestions are made by the therapist, for the benefit of the patient, directly into the patient's unconscious mind whilst he or she is in a relaxed, calm and comfortable state and patients will remember just as much as they want to remember whilst in the trance state. Sessions usually last around one hour and can take place in the comfort of the patient's own home. Most conditions are routinely improved in 3 to 4 sessions - except for smoking cessation which is undertaken in a single (extended) session. Clinical hypnotherapy bears little resemblance to stage hypnotism so patients can be assured that nothing will be done to embarrass them. Any information given to the therapist will be treated in the strictest confidence.
Other treatments include:

  • Anxiety
  • Exam Fears
  • Driving Test Fears
  • Fear of Flying, Dentist, Heights, Spiders, etc.
  • Lack of Confidence / Low Self-Esteem
  • Phobias
  • Smoking Cessation
  • Stress
  • Weight Control
  • Worry

If you know of friends, colleagues or relatives who may have tried but have been unable to give up the smoking habit, why not do them a favour and recommend they follow your example and stop smoking now in a single session as you have successfully done with the assistance of HYPNOTHERAPY?

You want to be, so how can you be Slim For Life? Top tips to create the lifestyle you want.

Boredom eating? Overeating?

Heres the “thin” (no g) !!

Stay busy.

“Oh is that the time?”

How many times have you said that in one day? Then you realise you’ve not eaten and possibly you’re not hungry until your stomach feels like you’ve swallowed a dinosaur!

Take action and do stuff to keep busy! Join a club – Pilates, Yoga, Crafts, Tennis, Basketball, Knitting, Swimming, Archery, – something unrelated to your current life or work. Read books that give you encouragement. Help a friend, volunteer or try something new every week.

Overfill your diary and not your stomach 🙂
