National Stop Smoking Day
Smokers nationally are being urged to stop smoking on National No Smoking day which this year is on the 13th of March, this campaign highlights the savings that can be made by stopping smoking using the “swap fags for swag” program.
Stop Smoking and save money
This program draws the smokers attention to just how much money they are spending on smoking cigarettes. With the average price for a pack of cigarettes now costing £7.46, smoking just one pack of 20 a day will cost the average smoker more than £2720 every year.
Stop Smoking and save your life
Of course, probably more important than saving money, is saving your life, maybe that sounds a bit over the top, but even if you do not die from a smoking related disease, you may still have a significantly poorer quality of life.
I have just recently had a client come to me to ask for help in quitting smoking, he had been a smoker for over 40 years, so why did he want to stop now? it wasn’t the money, it was a health scare. He had a few problems with his breathing and was referred to a specialist who told him that he had shadows on his lungs, which were more than likely caused by his 40 a day habit of smoking cigarettes.
Luckily he had caught the signs early and was told that if he was to stop smoking now he would be ok, but if he continued then he may die. The specialist told him that even if he did not die he would contract emphysema. this he was told would mean than he would be on oxygen for the rest of his life, the thought of carrying around an oxygen tank really frightened him.
How do I Stop Smoking?
There are many ways to quit smoking, from nicotine replacement patches, electronic cigarettes, nicotine replacement drugs to cold turkey. Of those there is help from the NHS in the form of a Quit Kit, these are available free from pharmacies.
The cold turkey method is probably the hardest route, overcoming the withdrawal symptoms and cravings without any help is not easy, and with all these methods there is always the temptation after quitting smoking that you may start again, due to stress or being on holiday etc.
Is there an easier way to Stop Smoking?
Yes by using hypnotherapy to stop smoking you can quickly and easily overcome that habit for good, with no cravings, no withdrawal symptoms, and usually in just one session.
