Most people have a combination of YES and NO responses. This information will help you to see your barriers and challenges. Our work together will help you to become ready. Most people have some reluctance and hesitation — it’s a very normal and natural part of the process!
Eventually, every smoker stops….because either the smoker stops the smoking…OR…the smoking stops the smoker.
My job is to help you to become ready, willing and able and develop the tools and plan to quit and stay quit and to release your identity as a smoker. Your effort is an investment in yourself, your self-care and your future. You are worth it !!
Our work together can include:
- Identify the benefits from smoking and develop other ways to achieve them. (Example: keeping your hands busy, stress management, etc.)
- Develop ways to make smoking feel “unfamiliar” and to battle cigarettes, nicotine and smoking instead of battling yourself.
- Create your Relapse Prevention Plan and look at ways that cigarettes try to lure or seduce you back into smoking. We can use a variety of tools, including homework assignments, and even consider Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy if you wish. Many clients find Hypnosis to be very very effective !!
- It’s all up to you !! You can choose life, health and freedom as you stand up to cigarettes on this journey to tobacco-freedom!!
Please give me a call or send a website message. Think about how great you will feel and fees about yourself when you become and remain tobacco-free !! I will look forward to hearing from you !!
