Natural Awakenings San Diego

The Only Thing to Fear is?

Jan 31, 2014 10:42AM ● By Dr. Ginger Marable

As a smoking cessation specialist hypnotherapist, I ask all prospective clients where they would rank their motivation to quit smoking on a 10-point scale. If they answer anything less than 10, I ask what it would take to get them to a 10. Almost every response is based on fear: fear of failure, weight gain, trauma, cravings, stress, or giving up a crutch. The one overriding fear of smokers is that it will be too difficult and too painful to stop.

Then I ask, “If I could absolutely guarantee that you will not fail, gain weight, or experience terrible withdrawal, where would you be?” The response is nearly always a resounding “Ten!” This is vital for success, because all hypnosis is self-hypnosis; therefore, in hypnosis clients can never be forced to do anything they do not already want to do.

One of the reasons it is neither painful nor difficult to stop smoking with our unique hypnosis method is that we remove the desire for cigarettes completely and transfer any perceived pleasure derived from smoking to a healthier habit of the client’s choice, such as exercise, drinking more water, or making better food choices. So the client experiences only positive changes in behavior—without any fears. The only side-effects are an increase in health, wealth, longevity and freedom!
