If you have been smoking and you want to quit the habit, you have to first start with the admittance that you are indeed addicted and that you have to commit to the process of quitting. We say it is a process because it is possibly one of the most difficult things that you will ever have to do but if you are committed to it, it is certainly not impossible. You need to have a strong mind and will power in order to give up a bit like smoking or even drinking alcohol because you will likely be addicted and breaking an addiction is difficult however, if you want to be healthy and to live the rest of your life in good health, this is something that you have to do. You need to find ways of making the process easier for you.
In the first week, your body will go in to withdrawal and it will possibly be one of the worst weeks of your life as your body starts to get rid of the tobacco from your body. In order to commit, you need to find your reason for doing it because focusing on this can help you to have a stronger mind set.
Seeking out professional help
While some people will be able to do it themselves with a lot of effort, others will need to seek out professional help to help them to quit smoking. Hypnosis has been known to help you to get rid of the habit but again, it is not a sure thing and it certainly is not a proven cure for anyone. Again, it really depends on the kind of person that you are and how strong you are mentally.
You do not have to seek out hypnotherapy at the very beginning. It would be a better idea for you to first try to break the habit yourself. Keep in mind that your body is severely addicted to the nicotine and when you give up smoking, your body goes in to shock and will react in various different ways. You can go in to depression, you might be angry, irritable, anxious and so many more things all at the same time and you are likely to find it hard to focus and concentrate which is why it might be a good idea to plan ahead and take time off work so that you can stay home, relax, buy yourself treats and watch movies to help to take your mind off what you are going through.
