Hypnosis Handles Smoking Cravings in Several Ways
“Hypnosis Handles Smoking Cravings in Several Ways”
by James Hazlerig
“I had decided to quit smoking,” said Jack Hanover, “but I was really worried about the cravings.”
As it turned out, Jack’s hypnotist had several ways of making cravings a non-issue.
“First, he explained to me what cravings really are,” Jack confided in an interview. “It turns out some of what I thought were cravings had more to do with the sugar content of cigarettes than the nicotine.” Cigarettes contain up to 18% sugar.
Even though Jack’s hypnotist gave him suggestions that his cravings would be minimal, the professional also taught Jack several ways to handle cravings if they occurred.
“I learned how to feel a craving and not act on it, or how to change the craving so it would just melt away. It was like magic,” Jack said.
“Ultimately, quitting with hypnosis was easy,” Jack added. “The mind really is powerful.”
