How Long Does It Take To Become A Non Smoker?

Have you ever wondered how much time it takes for a smoker to become a non smoker?

This may be especially important to know if you are the smoker considering to  make that decision to change.  Clients come to see me to create that type of change, as well as many others, and they ask me how many sessions will it take to work?   The answer is “It depends”.

There are a few factors at play. The clients level of desire to create change, the level of willingness to participate in the hypnosis session.....you’d be surprised how many people come in to a hypnosis session and say they are sceptical.   From time to time prospective clients almost demand one session of an hour to change. This is possible.

Often I found it’s not just the smoking habit, as there are underlying anxieties, stresses and negative beliefs to be dealt with.   Now lets calibrate for a moment. You may be thinking I’ll change in one hour, and you may well do when you make that decision. What's your history though?

 Take a pack a day smoker who has been smoking for 35 years. 20 smokes a day and lets say 5 minutes per smoke, for the ritual = 100 minutes/day.
7 days in a week means that is 700 minutes spent smoking.
52 weeks in a year means that the time spent smoking is 36,500 minutes
That’s 608 hours or 25.3 days with a smoke in their mouth or hand.  

The numbers are adding up, aren’t they?  

Over 35 years that means a smoker has spent 1,277,500 minutes attached to a smoke.   Or 21,291 hours....non stop.  (887 days......126 weeks.....2.4 years...)   21,291 hours repeating a habit...a movement...continuously.....and yet....some clients get upset that they don’t change in one hour.  

For me, I want to see my clients achieve their desired outcome....that is...to become a non-smoker. That’s why I’ll take the time to get them started in the first session and then over two maybe three more sessions embed the new behaviour as well as simultaneously deal with old habits, old associations, negative thinking and old patterns of behaviour.  

Some clients are surprised that I hold them to account for following through on doing what they need to do to ensure they remain a happy, healthy, confident non-smoker. They might have to read an e-book, listen to my hypnosis recordings or do a task that we mutually agree on.   After all, if you’re serious, why wouldn’t you follow through and save your life.   You would do it....wouldn;t you?  

Until next time.....stay safe

For the smokers that sharing update is quite useful. If they wanted to stop smoking they can grab the number of the person and contact them for direction on how to stop. I really enjoy this wonderful and that would be understandable for public too.

It has fully emerged to crown Singapore's southern shores and undoubtedly placed her on the global map of residential landmarks. I still scored the more points than I ever have in a season for GS. I think you would be hard pressed to find somebody with the same consistency I have had over the years so I am happy with that.
