Becoming a Former Smoker is quite an undertaking. As a matter of fact, it is by far the most important decision you will make in your entire life. Not only will it save your throat, your lungs, your heart, and your arteries, most importantly, it will save your life.
There are basically three types of smokers.
The first is the habitual smoker who smokes about a pack or less a day. This type of smoker does not reach for a cigarette upon awakening in the morning, nor does he smoke in the middle of the night.
The second type is the addicted smoker. This type of smoker smokes more than a pack a day (usually 2 or more) and is physically addicted to nicotine. The addicted smoker reaches for a cigarette immediately upon awakening and sometimes smokes in the middle of the night.
The third type of smoker is the chain smoker. This type of smoker smokes three or more packs a day, is physically addicted to nicotine and may be psychologically addicted as well. The chain smoker reaches for a cigarette immediately upon awakening and often smokes in the middle of the night. We believe it to be in the best interest of the chain smoker to be medically supervised when withdrawing from his or her addiction. We suggest that a thorough history and medical evaluation be done by a Medical Doctor and a licensed Psychologist. Then, under the supervision of the treating physician and physician prescribed prescription, we can help with the withdrawal process. This type of smoker will best benefit from individual sessions.
In order to help all types of smokers, we developed a variety of programs to help end smoking no matter what the category. And, our programs (group or individual) are designed to fit into nearly anyone’s schedule.
Our most successful programs are the highly intense group “Three Day Weekend Stop Smoking Program,” and the “Three Consecutive Evenings Program.” Upon completion of these programs, if needed, weekly support sessions are available at no additional charge. For those who prefer, individual Smoking Secession Sessions are available to assist the Habitual Smoker. If you prefer individual sessions, please contact us for availability.
We also provide the Addicted Smoker a Smoking Secession Program prior to entering into a Weekend Program or the Three Evenings Program. The Secession Program slowly decreases the number of cigarettes the smoker smokes. The Smoking Secession Program is held one night a week over 4 to 8 weeks depending on how much the individual smokes. If the smoker smokes a pack and a half a day, the program will last 6 weeks with the smoker rationing the cigarettes to cut out five cigarettes each week until the final week. The smoker’s quit date will be six weeks from the start date.
If the smoker smokes 2 packs a day, the program will extend to a total of eight weeks. Again, the smoker will reduce the number of cigarettes by five each week. The same 5 cigarette a day reduction will apply to one who smokes more than two packs a day. For those smokers, the individual’s start date and quit dates will be adjusted accordingly.
For the Addicted Smoker who prefers individual Smoking Secession Sessions, please contact us for availability.
The free seminar will provide you with an overview of how Hypnosis works and how Hypnosis can be a solution to helping you to quit smoking in the future.
We will be accepting donations whcih will be donated directly to cancer research and treatment programs in the area. Additional stop smoking resources will be provided at the seminar.
