It’s Time To Stop Smoking in Hertfordshire, for Good!
October is here and with it comes Stoptober, the month dedicated to helping people quit smoking once and for all.
We all know that smoking is bad for you, even the graphic pictures of diseased lungs etc don’t put people off smoking. So instead of focusing on the negative let’s take a look at the benefits of quitting smoking today.
You may find it helpful to write these down as a reminder of why you want to quit.
Stopping smoking improves fertility.
If you are hoping to start a family you really need to stop inhaling chemicals which reduce fertility and cause disease, there’s no point starting a family if you won’t be around to help raise your family!
Stopping smoking reduces stress.
Nicotine addiction makes smokers stressed due to the ‘withdrawal’ between cigarettes. The feeling of satisfaction that comes after smoking is temporary and is not a real cure for stress.
Stopping smoking gives you better skin by reducing the effects of premature ageing caused by toxins in tobacco smoke.
Wrinkles and spots can be reduced by quitting smoking today!
Within two to 12 weeks of stopping smoking, your circulation improves. This makes all physical activity, including walking and running, much easier.
Quitting also boosts your immune system, making it easier to fight off colds and flu, just what you need as the cold season gets into full swing. The increase in oxygen in the body makes ex-smokers less tired and less likely to have headaches.
One of the most appealing benefits to quitting smoking is the money you save! Smoking is expensive and you might be surprised at how it all adds up.
On average, most people who quit save around £250 each month.
That’s nearly £3,000 a year going up in smoke. What else could you spend that money on?

How we can help you quit smoking.
Stop smoking for 28 days and you’re five times more likely to stop for good. That’s a great statistic but those 28 days are full of nicotine withdrawal symptoms and they directly contribute to the decision to start smoking again. Perhaps you will feel like you have given up an old friend who has seen you through the good and bad times. Cigarettes are more like a parasite that have taken your money, time, health and have given you nothing back.
Stopping smoking suddenly using sheer willpower (‘going cold turkey’) is the least effective way to quit. Stopping is more likely to be successful if you plan ahead, have support and have a genuine desire to become an ex smoker.
Using a combination of techniques including Clinical Hypnotherapy, NLP and CBP we can assist you in tapping into the power of your subconscious mind and changing your attitude toward smoking permanently. By setting realistic goals and changing your subconscious focus you can stop smoking and become a retired smoker without experiencing distracting withdrawal symptoms, weight gain or feeling like something is ‘missing’ from your life.
Costing only £180 for a block of 3 sessions we can help you work out a bespoke therapy plan which will give you the best chance to take control of your habit and quit for good. We recommend 3 sessions as this gives your subconscious mind time to fully absorb the new behaviours. You will probably find there are times or circumstances which challenge your new non smoker status, we can address these as they come up and limit the possibility of you going back to that dirty old habit. If you’re saving £250 in your first month of quitting, the sessions will actually save you money! You can feel more confident knowing that you beat smoking and are now enjoying the benefits.
