It seemed like a good idea at the time. It seemed like everyone was using e-cigarettes and it is not as if it was dangerous like smoking cigarettes. Then you realise, for whatever reason, that it is not for you.
Then you find it is a lot harder to stop using e-cigarettes than you thought it would be!
How Does One Quit “Vaping”?
So why do you want to stop using e-cigarettes (or stop “vaping”)? If you are reading this, you have probably tried and found it difficult. You have come to the right place because Hypnotherapy can help you stop your e-cigarette habit.
Do You “Vape” to Stop Smoking Cigarettes?
About 100,000 people die in the UK per year from smoking related illness. Fifty percent of smokers die as a result of their smoking. These are harsh statistics so anything that encourages smokers to stop has got to be viewed as positive. E-Cigarettes were introduced as a “safe” delivery method for nicotine (other chemicals in cigarette smoke are the poisonous ones). We are told that smokers are hooked on nicotine because it is highly addictive. One would therefore expect any delivery method for nicotine to be as addictive; yet the NHS state that “most people using nicotine replacement products do not become dependent on them”(See Myth No. 9)!
So what happens if you become dependent on e-cigarettes?
Unfortunately, according to the American National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIOD) e-cigarettes may be safer than smoking tobacco but they are still dangerous to health because they contain cancer causing chemicals that are produced as a result of vaporising nicotine. There is also no regulation (as exists with other nicotine replacement products) to ensure that they are “safe” to use. Your use of e-cigarettes is putting your health in danger.
Are You Addicted to Nicotine?
There is no correlation between how addictive a substance is and the severity of the withdrawal (and therefore the ease at which you can stop using it). Nicotine is deemed to be highly addictive and long term smoking is even said to change the structure of the brain yet, I have had many people use my Stop Smoking using Hypnotherapy service who find it easy to never smoke again after just one session.
What has happened to make you dependent on e-cigarettes?
In my experience people who become dependent on nicotine replacement products find it harder to stop using them than a smoker to stop smoking. Moving to e-cigarettes reinforces all the negative programming surrounding smoking tobacco and can easily trap those who make the move in a powerful habitual prison. Stopping smoking is more decision based but “vaping” is locked more in behaviour and habit so must be treated differently.
Stop “Vaping” with Hypnotherapy
If you want to escape your “addiction” to e-cigarettes you have to commit to two sessions of hypnotherapy (one lasting 90 minutes to two hours and the second lasting one hour to 90 minutes). The full programme will cost you £280. Hypnotherapy can be extremely helpful in stopping most habits.
