Smoking Cessation: Becoming Smoke-Free Is A Radical Lifestyle Change


Yes, becoming smoke-free is a radical lifestyle change. I support those who are willing to become smoke-free since 1998. Assisting smokers in successfully making that change is a highly rewarding endeavor for me providing smoking cessation interventions with Hypnobalancing. It is rewarding to witness the transformation clients go through as they gradually extract themselves from the stranglehold nicotine has on their daily routines and embrace the fresh outlook on their lives that lies ahead on the smoke-free path. It is also gratifying to know that for each smoker who is able to stay smoke-free, there are others in that person’s life who are happy and relieved to see their loved one choose health over the debilitating habit. Of course, the benefits of becoming smoke-free go beyond the individuals seeking treatment. Smoking cessation plays a key role in improving public health.




Step by step


Quitting is one thing, becoming smoke-free is quite another, and remaining smoke-free involves a fairly dramatic lifestyle change. Promoting lifestyle change as a successful aid to remaining smoke-free is an important focus of the process. This aspect of the process acknowledges the grief process and far-reaching changes that often occur in a person’s life as a result of giving up smoking. Therefore it is important to describe the change they are undertaking as quitting smoking, with its negative connotations of losing something, it is instead described as becoming smoke-free. Becoming smoke-free signals a process of gaining something. Clients are gaining the freedom to make lifestyle choices unfettered by the demands of nicotine dependence.






Incorporating the idea of lifestyle change in the 3 steps process with Hypnobalancing™ also acknowledges that for many of my clients smoking has played a significant role in their life and that new activity, beliefs, and coping strategies are going to be needed to take the place of the former smoking lifestyle. Having professional support when dealing with this lifestyle change helps my clients to reduce the risk of relapse through, by developing an awareness of how imbalances in lifestyle and some aspects of their previous lifestyle choices ﹣ before becoming smoke free ﹣ can threaten their attempts to remain abstinent, and, also adopt ways to address these imbalances in order to promote a smoke-free lifestyle.
