Hypnosis (also known as “hypnotherapy”) is a popular alternative therapy among people looking to quit smoking. Defined as a trance-like state of mind, hypnosis is marked by focused attention and greater openness to suggestion. Because of its supposed ability to increase responsiveness, hypnosis is often used to affect change in unhealthy behaviours such as smoking and other forms of tobacco use.

Why People Use Hypnosis to Quit Smoking

About half of the people who don’t quit smoking will die of smoking-related problems, according to the National Institutes of Health. Quitting smoking offers several immediate benefits (such as improved circulation, healthier blood pressure, and easier breathing), and lowers your risk for a number of major diseases (including heart disease and cancer) in the long term. Many hypnotherapy proponents claim that the therapy can help you achieve these beneficial effects without relying on prescription drugs, nicotine replacement therapy, and other standard smoking cessation aids.

What To Expect If You Use Hypnosis to Quit Smoking

A hypnosis session typically begins with the hypnotherapist inducing relaxation in the patient. Once you’re under hypnosis, the hypnotherapist may suggest specific ways for you to reach your smoking cessation goals.

Even though you appear to be in a trance during hypnosis, you are not unconscious. You are still aware of your surroundings, and — despite what many stage performers may claim during an entertaining show — you cannot be made do to anything against your will. In fact, brain tests performed on patients during hypnotism sessions have shown a high level of neurological activity.

Patients can also practice self-hypnosis in order to promote deep relaxation. Since stress often triggers the urge to smoke, achieving deep relaxation may help reduce cigarette cravings. In addition to hypnosis, mind-body techniques like guided imagery, meditation, and deep breathing may help bring about deep relaxation.
