Default Hypnosis and subliminal messages...

A few weeks ago, just for fun, I tried a self hypnosis with subliminal messages session. There are numerous on Youtube. The next morning, I did not even think of grabbing a cigarette. That was so odd. After getting my coffee ready, I did not really feel an urge. I waited a while. Then I said I'll try one. It tasted like a stale cold ashtray. Just like when smoking a cigarette after a few days or so. That was weird because I smoke just before going to bed. I put it away but smoked later that day and the next two weeks.
I tried this recording again a week ago with the firm intention of not smoking anymore. The thought or urge barely crossed my mind. The smell of smoke and the sight of someone smoking is totally displeasing. I do have an inhaler that I sometimes use, in case I would get edgy. But just deep breathing seems to be sufficient. One thing I noticed is that smoking did not make me happier and I was not more fulfilled after smoking a cigarette. I was always frustrated by the smell or my clothes, house, hair breath and the burning sensation in my throat. In the 2 weeks delay, that is what I was telling myself. I believe that has helped me build the motivation.

Not proud... After 11 days I had a relapse. The other days went fine and did not feel any serious urges. I had already saved 100$ !!! Yesterday I felt like I had a tiger with its claws hanging inside me. The pain was so real. Everything was hurting. I had such an urge but my friend refused to give me a cigarette. She said it was not worth ruining it and had to get used to it. I did another hypnosis session but it was interupted by the neighbours had a serious fight. The walls of the building were shaking. It woke me up in a panic. Went the whole day with that pain inside me and that feeling of claws scraping the whole inside of my body and on the verge of a panic attack and the most bizarre emotions. So, I went and bought a small pack. Of course, that first cigarette only lasted a few minutes. It tasted awful, the burning feeling inside my throat and no satisfaction at all. I know I will do that hypnosis again. I still hate the smell, the taste and everything about it. There is absolutely no advantage about smoking. I tried calling the help line but of course, like any help line I ever called, it is not available... Next time this happens, I will go and lie down and do some relaxation session.

Remember it is not the external things that happen that decide whether your quit will be successful or fail, it is all internal. There is no one putting a gun to your head saying that you have to smoke now.

Distract, distract, distract the next time you feel that pain and remember smoking doesn't solve any problem it just makes everything worse.

Get back on the bandwagon. Throw the cigs away and begin your new life as a non-smoker.

Very interesting. Care to share where one can purchase/ download the recording? My brother and I have been considering a hypnotist to help us quit.
