Do a great thing for your health.
A great number of people find Cognitive Coaching an effective treatment to help them quit smoking – and you could be one of them. The method works by breaking the negative behaviors and thinking patterns associated with smoking.
Addiction is hard to overcome and although we know that smoking leads to all sorts of health problems – it is hard to stop. The key to giving up smoking is this: if your will to quit is stronger than your desire to smoke then you will succeed. Coaching can swing the odds back in your favor and often smokers report that they gave up lifelong habits with hardly any craving at all. The thoughts and behaviors the smoker holds is often what prevents them from successfully giving up.
The only way to break an addiction is to rewire the brain and change the neural pathways which drive you to carry out the addiction. The most effective way of doing this is working with the unconscious part of the mind because the behavior itself is unconscious. For example: you find yourself doing it before you have had a chance to stop it, and even when you know you are doing it, you still can’t stop yourself.
Smoking increases the risk of developing a wide range of health ailments and diseases, but the habit does not only harm the smoker’s health, it can also have a negative impact on the people around them. Children and babies living with people who smoke are vulnerable to many health problems via the effects of passive smoking. We all know by now that smoking kills you, but the reality is that addiction is hard to kick – even though we know that we are poisoning our bodies.
