Yes… Quitting Smoking Is Easy
www.iwanttoquitsmoking.com The Stop Smoking Hypnosis people.
We've heard about all levels of disease we can manifest in physical body from smoking habit so there is no sense even going there. Scare tactics never have and never will resolve any problem. What few acknowledge is most problems originate on an energy level. And solutions to problems are also on an energy level. That means focus on scare tactics is only making smoking habit stronger, locking a person into an almost phobia reaction to quitting. It also means solution, when approached from an energy level, is only way to deal with problem. Not everyone has experienced a traumatic event associated with smoking habit. A good many persons resistant to quitting smoking have strong indicators for survival associated with smoking habit. For example, one person was raped at age of thirteen and started smoking after event. Every time she lit up, she replayed event in her mind until many years later she wanted to stop doing this. The problem was every time she tried to quit smoking, she began choking replaying that old event from past, which meant she had to smoke or fear choking to death. The choking became a safety mechanism to remind her to avoid that fear mechanism.
Also death and dying seems to play a part in initiating smoking habit. Many persons begin smoking after a death of a loved one. This is a highly emotional time to be gotten through and many will report lighting one up to keep breathing through sometimes weeks of preparation for burial. And then find they can't quit because negative emotion has locked them into survival factors.
Let's take a look at some of messages we learn growing up that often as adults trip us up. These may sound silly and childish, they are however strong self programmed, self hypnotic messages:
"A car with one headlight is approaching. Hold your breath until it's passed. We shouted out a mental trigger, a word for initiating this process. Pididdle. So years later program may have been forgotten, body still replays message automatically, and we hold our breath until danger is past. Yes, danger because that is how brain is taught to keep us safe. Yes there is no real danger in a car with one headlight. It doesn't matter when mind is trained to perceive a possible danger; it goes into automatic response until this nasty bit of self disciplined support is relayed as "I am safe now." Safe to light up another one without consciously knowing why a person is locked into doing so.
"Driving past a cemetery on either side of road. Hold your breath until past it. Years later a loved one takes us through release process and a cigarette becomes our best friend. At least when we're smoking , it's okay to breathe; make space for ourselves to breath, to get past that old bit of programming.
"Walking down a sidewalk, step on a crack; you'll break your mother's back unless you hold your breath.
"Marksmanship. Hold your breath for accuracy. The problem with this mechanism is we encounter daily problems where we attempt to be accurate in many different things and smoking takes some of pressure off that old bit of programming and makes it okay to breathe.
Reclaiming Your Life From Anxiety SymptomsWritten by Charles Linden
Only somebody who has lived with anxiety – as either a sufferer or a carer – knows how devastating it can be. The affect can be seen and felt across every aspect of your life for years and years.
So how does anxiety make you withdraw from life?
Basically, people with anxiety live their lives defensively, at a level where they are merely ‘coping’ instead of ‘embracing’. They are life’s ‘passengers’, passive in their emotional and physical relationship with world around them - rather than ‘activists’ who engage with their surroundings and interact with people.
Now I want to share something with you that will probably – hopefully! – shock you.
Have you ever sat down with pen and paper and worked out how much time you spend feeling anxious every day of your life? An hour? Two? Four? Ten?!
If you spend even a single hour a day in anxious mode, that equates to 30 hours a month – that’s two ‘waking’ days every month where you could be playing with kids, training for a marathon run, taking up a hobby, visiting old friends… LIVING your life. Instead, you’re wasting that valuable time on your anxiety.
At it’s worst, I know my anxiety had reached point where it took over 90% of my waking thoughts. It left me totally exhausted.
