How Can Mindfulness Help Me Stop Smoking?
“How Can Mindfulness Help Me Stop Smoking?”
by James Hazlerig, MA, Certified Hypnosis Practitioner
Mindfulness is a simple meditation technique that many hypnosis practitioners use to
help their clients quit smoking for good.
See, in mindfulness, you learn to let a thought be a thought, a feeling just be a feeling,
and a craving just be a craving.
For most smokers, there is no distance between having the thought of a cigarette and
lighting up. Mindfulness is about the art of putting distance between our thoughts and our
actions, so that the though of a cigarette no longer means what it used to. It is simply a
reminder of how good you feel now that you are free from cigarettes.
A good hypnosis practitioner will have many tools to help you stop smoking, and
mindfulness is an important one.
