Kick the Smoking Habit!

How to quit smoking once and for all!

So what if it is really that easy? What if all your beliefs about how hard it is going to be to quit are completely false? What if, after just one session of hypnotherapy or NLP you find it incredibly easy to become and remain a happy, confident non-smoker for life?

The reason why hypnotherapy & NLP are so successful is because both our beliefs about smoking and our habitual smoking behaviours reside within your unconscious mind. So whilst consciously we may wish to quit, all too often our all powerful unconscious mind simply would not let us.

You see when smokers first start; they buy into years of conditioning telling them that smoking made them feel somehow better, more confident and more relaxed. And as a result of lighting up those first few cigarettes, smokers permanently install these extremely unhelpful beliefs directly into their unconscious, beliefs that also included the concept that quitting was going to be really difficult.

At the same time, smokers make a conscious decision to choose those perceived benefits of feeling better, more relaxed and more confident, over the initial physical reactions of inhaling the poisonous fumes. So as time goes on and those uncomfortable physical reactions start to subside, as a result of their newly formed nicotine addiction, they started to mistake the relief of feeding that addiction with feelings of relaxation and confidence.

So many years later, after smoking tens of thousands (possibly hundreds of thousands) of cigarettes, they have re-enforced those unhelpful beliefs about smoking and how hard it is to quit and, they have also trained their unconscious minds to wrongly associate the process of lighting and smoking a cigarette with feeling good, confident and relaxed.

Hypnotherapy and NLP allow us to retrain the unconscious mind of a smoker to disregard those false beliefs about smoking and how hard it is to quit, and to swap those unconscious benefits for something altogether more exciting and fulfilling - feeling absolutely great!

So as a result, the all too familiar withdrawal pangs of irritability, mood swings and cravings, the primary reasons why people fail to permanently quit smoking, will be replaced with feelings of relaxation, improved self confidence and overall happiness.

Gall Bladder Issues

If you're experiencing pain in the upper right quadrant of your body, and you have a family history confirming gallbladder attacks. Don't worry. This can be treated by diet and under the supervision of your physician. This is a guide, and is not to be used as a substitute for seeking medical care.

Twenty years ago, I suffered a horrid gallbladder attack, folding over, and vomiting. The medical staff at that time diagnosed by fluoroscope that I had gallstones. Later, I would see the evidence, the stones were the size of my "pinky nail".

Okay, what I'm getting to is there are alternative treatments, other than surgery, to provide relief. First of all, eliminate all high fat diets, and switch over to a reasonable high fiber diet. I had the surgery, old school, not the laprascopic procedure. Some foods I have to stay away from: corn, broccoli, cauliflower, and any form of pork. You'll have to try by experiment, and maintain a diary detailing foods eaten throughout the day.

By the way, here's the link for the gallbladder diet:

Also, stuff the docs don't tell you: You'll gain weight, and you'll have loose bodily functions (stools). Put yourself on Citrucel fiber support. I found out this works better than the psyllium husk based products, less gas.

Finally, take digestive enzymes to help break down high fat foods, such as cheesecake. I'll admit that the cheesecake melted in my mouth, but I'm paying for it right now as I type this. Right now, I put myself on a white rice diet, mixed with a scoop of protein powder (23 grams per scoop). I'm hoping I'll flush out the toxins by the end of the week.

Please remember that there's hope and alternative solutions - "read health food stores".

Update 3/16/2011:

I've changed over to Benefiber because Citrucel was giving me issues - rapid evacuations from the lower tract. These are very good products, but choose whatever works best and stay with it. Also, try steaming your vegies. Doing so, softens up the fiber. Broccoli stems are "equivalent" to eating lumber. I found this out the hard way, not fun. Hey, one more thing: Cook a can of whole green beans in the micro, and use the fresh vegetable setting. My microwave, a Sharp, has an option for soft or hard vegetables. I put the whole can in, beans and all into a covered Corning pan. Works for me.

Here's to your health!
