||I know many people who have tried patches and nicotine gum with little success. Why is that?
Because the whole concept of Nicotine Replacement Therapy is based on the mistaken assumption that nicotine is a physically addictive substance. When you compare nicotine to heroine, which is really an addictive substance, you'll notice that people that suddenly stop taking heroine go through physical withdrawal symptoms. (Heart palpitation, shakes, sweats, convultions, vomiting, halucinations...) With the 1,000s and 1,000s of clients we've seen over the years, we've never seen anyone suffer from physical withdrawal symptoms from stopping smoking. Attempting to quit with other methods, they may get grumpy, irritable, have cravings or get anxious...but all of those are in the mind. None of those are physical withdrawal symptoms. Smoking is simply a habit, (one of the most powerful habits in the world) and another word for a habit is an unconscious behavior, something that a smoker does without thinking about consciously. All unconscious behaviors (habits) are kept in the unconscious mind. The simplest, easiest, and most direct way to change a habit is to communicate directly with the unconscious mind using hypnosis. This is why, when it's done correctly, time and time again advanced hypnosis has proven to be far more effective than patches and gum.
|Is nicotine replacement therapy safe?
Isn't it just as dangerous as cigarettes?
We believe that it can be as dangerous, if not more so, than the cigarettes. We have seen clients who are using patches and chewing nicotine gum, and we've seen quite a few who are also smoking at the same time. Nicotine, although not an addictive substance, is a very powerful poison. Some say that 1 drop of pure nicotine, if it were injected directly into the blood stream, would be enough to kill a person. When you see someone who is chewing gum, using patches, and smoking, you've got to ask yourself 2 questions. First, "What effect is this having on their body?" The answer to this question is usually obvious. Their heart's racing, they can't sleep, they're experiencing a degree of anxiety, as well as various other symptoms. This is the body's way of trying to eliminate the poison. The second question, and perhaps even more interesting is, "Why on earth are they still smoking cigarettes when they have 3, 4, 5, even 10 times the amount of their normal dosage of nicotine going into their body?" The answer to this question is, "If nicotine was an addictive substance, they would have more than enough nicotine in their body to not smoke cigarettes." So it proves once again that smoking happens not because nicotine is an addictive substance but because the act of smoking itself is an unconscious behavior.
