One of the biggest challenges of civilisation is to “give up smoking” also known as “stop smoking” The subconscious mind will reject both of those statements, requests, wishes, demands, call them what you will. No tablets, pills, lotions and the like, will ever stop you smoking by default – more on that in a moment. Patches and other PHYSICAL things will also not work except by default. “But I used the patches by default the other day and they worked” you say.
“I took those tablets and I haven’t smoked since” you say. I said BY DEFAULT. worry worry. You see, any of the PHYSICAL cures were really` placebos. Smoking is a habit. ALL habits can only be in your subconscious mind. The only way that the smoking habit in your subconscious mind can be changed, is to get into your subconscious mind and change it. Sounds sensible. The habit is in your subconscious mind and NOWHERE ELSE !! Putting sticking plaster on your arm or sucking on a pretend plastic cigarette is not going to change a mind habit! Sometimes a conscious mind can get SO intent and you (it) keep on repeating the need to stop smoking, that it finally can get through to your subconscious mind and – you just stop. This is a kind of sneaky self hypnosis even if you have no idea about hypnosis or the mind. People that this happens to, may shrug their shoulder and say “I just made up my mind and stopped “Yeah, right oh…
At least they didn’t say they made up their shoulder or right foot and stopped!!
I hope that you can agree that you have the smoking habit so you could also agree that smoking is a habit eg: when you feel like smoking, you light up by habit. That’s cool. Nothing wrong with that. It’s a habit. So what. UM… You probably have other habits too. Many of them are beneficial. Some may not be so good. Ok you can handle that but where are these habits? Is it reasonable to suggest that they’re in your mind? and in your subconscious mind too. Because that’s where all your habits and beliefs are kept. Your subconscious mind resists all change and be assured your subconscious mind is far more powerful than your conscious mind. Your conscious mind is the ‘gonna’ mind. It’s gonna give up smoking and it’s gonna clean your teeth everyday and it’s gonna do this and gonna do that but you never do because the smoking habit is in your subconscious mind!
Your conscious mind can’t change/alter or remove the smoking habit. The habit is not in your conscious mind, it’s in your SUB conscious mind. The only thing you can do is to bypass your conscious mind (using self-hypnosis) get into you subconscious mind (where the habit is and carefully alter the smoking habit/belief that’s been in your subconscious mind all this time you need to ALTER the belief so you ‘see’ yourself as a non-smoker. Previously, you’ve been seeing yourself as a smoker, thereby having the habit that you’re a smoker which you’re now going to change!! The cunning beauty of this new attitude, this new belief (that you changed in hypnosis) is that you don’t actually GIVE up smoking -you’re not taking anything away from yourself. Your subconscious mind can’t get all ego-trippy and try and stop this “stop smoking ” caper.
You can still smoke if you want to, but you kind of don’t feel like it anymore. But how do I get into my subconscious mind and do all that stuff? The article labelled “Self Hypnosis” will show you the way.
