Is smoking really addictive? Did you know that after 24-48 hours after quitting smoking, all nicotine is out of your body? No physical cravings exist even though the individual may feel a desire to smoke due to the habitual behaviour of doing a specific thing at a specific time or with something they normally connected with a cigarette.
The actual definition of Addiction is ‘Doing more of it, more often’. Smokers usually smoke a same relative number of cigarettes each day, for years, in fact, same brand and same strength, therefore, the definition of addiction fails to apply. Smoking, while an annoying habit, is not addictive. It is a desire and one you can most absolutely correct and change.
Some people smoke due to boredom, most to release stress or lower anxiety. When I ask my smokers how does smoke going into your mouth, down your throat and into your lungs relax you, they are perplexed because it can’t. Smoking does nothing to relax you, nothing to release any stress or anxiety. What does assist is the act of breathing in deeply and exhaling; however, there is no need for smoke to achieve this. If this were the case, then any of us can stand on the edge of a fire, breathe away and be euphorically relaxed.
People tell me when they contact me for hypnotherapy to quit smoking they have tried almost every other method. They advise they have used patches, pills, sprays, or even cold turkey, yet failure is what results. Once people recognise it is their mind keeping them smoking, therefore, it is their mind that can stop them, they understand how to achieve being smoke-free forever.
