In my Portland, Oregon chiropractic, nutrition and hypnosis clinic, Optimum Function, I often see patients who come to me to stop smoking through hypnosis. Many of them also need help losing weight and becoming healthier and more active; these patients often see the best and most long-lasting affects. Often, it is these patients who are the ones to permanently stop smoking bcause they change their entire lifestyle with regards to exercise, food and habits.

It’s the middle of November and it’s time for the Great American Smokeout. This program, sponsored by the American Cancer Society challenges smokers to quit smoking for one day with hopes that is they can quit for one day, they’ll realize they can quit smoking for good.
Quitting smoking is not easy, but it can be done. To have the best chance of quitting successfully, you need to know what you’re up against, what your options are, and where to go for help. click on the above link for the Great American Smokeout for more info on this program. In addition, hypnosis has a 60-70% success rate in helping people quit smoking. My Stop Smoking Portland program includes a phone consultation in which I will help determine the best way to prepare and set your date to quit, schedule your first hypnosis session (very often on the day you’re to quit) and give you a few tools to help you prepare. The preparation phase is VERY important as it helps to modify your behaviors as a smoker and reduce chemical dependency on nicotine. From there, it usually takes 1-3 visits to help permanently ex-sponge this unhealthy and damaging habit from your subconscious mind.
