In this day and age, medical professionals are highly encouraging people to put down the cigarettes once and for all, as there are so many benefits to quitting, but when you are personally faced with the decision to quit, will you be able to go about this task cold turkey or will you need some additional aid or assistance?

As mentioned earlier, every person is different, and what works for some, may not be the answer for others.
Many people try using nicotine patches, gum, mints, and more to quit cigarettes, but when these methods produce no positive results, it may be time to consider an entirely different method: hypnotherapy.
Why Hypnosis For Smoking Cessation May Change Your Life
Hypnosis for smoking therapy is a treatment method that can be used to help people make changes in their way of thinking and behavior, so that they can live happier and more fulfilled lives. This treatment involves putting the patient into a trance or hypnotic state, in which they become more susceptible to suggestive language. Unlike how it is often portrayed on television or entertaining shows, the patient is still in control of their free will and cannot be forced to do anything they do not want. The hypnotherapist speaks to the patient in a soothing voice, suggesting ideas that help to reinforce certain ideas or behaviors.
What this does is communicates with the patient’s subconscious, where the motivations for their actions lie hidden.
This method of treatment can be used to change behaviors and has been successful in helping many people to stop smoking as well. The process to stop smoking hypnosis works essentially the same as making other behavioral changes, as the associations in their subconscious mind that causes the behavior must be altered. However, the suggestions that are typically made in sessions to quit smoking pertain to the destructive nature of the habit and the need to preserve the body.
There are three key ideas when you are trying to quit smoking hypnosis: by smoking you are poisoning your body, you need your body in order to live, and that you should respect and protect your body. This is used often in conjunction with imagery of the negative associated health risks. With the help of a hypnotherapist, you could drop your dirty smoking habit.
Stop Smoking In 3 Hour Smoking Cessation Hypnosis Sessions
When you’re ready, you can use hypnosis to combat this self-destructive habit from your life. Becoming an ex-smoker begins with a 20-45 minute telephone session, when I learn about your specific smoking behavior and history. With this foundation I provide you with an individualized hypnosis program that supports your goal of being a non-smoker. This is followed by a 3 hour smoking cessation session and a personalized recording for you to listen to each day for a week. After the first session and with your commitment and the tools you have learned to support your health and well being you are ready to be a non-smoker. There is one follow up session a week later. In this session, you will receive another personalized hypnosis recording to listen to each day for at least one week.
If you smoke over a pack of cigarettes a day, we have a more gradual plan available. Your first session will be 2 hours long, and the following 2-3 sessions are one hour long.
You are given a personalized recording that will help reinforce the suggestions, enabling you to learn new ways to diffuse triggers that will allow you to maintain your smoking-free status.

I owe it all to Ava Evans. She totally saved my life in the nic of time
July 16th was the one year anniversary in quitting smoking. I owe it all to Ava Evans. She totally saved my life in the nic of time.
I flew out to Los Angeles from New York specifically to have a hypnotherapy session. I just turned 60 & I smoked way to long. I never thought I would be able to quit; I had tried many times before. I spent 4 hours with Ava which sounds like a ridiculous amount of time. The time flew! The 1st 3 hours Ava gives you the whole rendition of the cigarette industry. We went through so much material. I think this is what makes the actual “hypnosis” work. It’s the icing on the cake! She puts all your receptors to sleep.
Ava is so knowledgeable & totally gets all the facts into your head. Her technique totally worked for me. I feel so lucky to be a non smoker.

How Hypnosis For Smoking Cessation Can Improve Your Life
How Hypnosis Can Help You Quit Vaping ?
Vaping is an insidious addictive habit. It is more addictive and I believe more dangerous than smoking cigarettes. Many people who vape are so used to carrying the mechanism around literally having it with them wherever they go, which contributes to making it much more challenging to quit. Vaping can cause serious damage to the lungs in a much shorter time span than cigarettes.
Hypnotherapy is the best way to quit vaping and cigarettes. We start with a 30 min session/questionnaire. This is followed up with one 3 hour session after which you are no longer vaping/smoking. We make a 55 minute recording which you listen to each day for 7 to 10 days. There is a short appointment a week to 10 days later which includes another recording.
Vaping and Popcorn Lung
Diacetyl is frequently added to flavored e-liquid to enhance the taste. Inhaling diacetyl causes inflammation and may lead to permanent scarring in the smallest branches of the airways — popcorn lung — which makes breathing difficult. Popcorn lung has no lasting treatment.
Popcorn lung is a rare condition that causes airway scarring due to inflammation and eventually lung damage. While treatments exist to limit and manage symptoms, currently there is no cure for popcorn lung, and it is considered life-threatening.
