Why People Don't Stop Smoking

Most people know that by stopping they will save several thousand dollars a year. Most people know that they could add years to their life. And most people know that if they stop smoking right now, they could save their health - before it's too late.

So, why do people continue to smoke? With experience in dealing with the mind, both in the USA and in the UK, we have found the answer to be the same all over the world. It all comes down to one thing...FEAR.

Smoking cessation is the effort to stop smoking tobacco products. Nicotine is an addictive substance, especially when consumed through the inhalation of tobacco smoke because of the rapid absorption through the lungs. Tobacco use is one of the major causes of death worldwide, according to the World Health Organization[1], causing 5.4 million deaths per year world-wide. esearch in Western countries has found that approximately 3-5% of quit attempts succeed using willpower alone (Hughes et al, 2004)[2]. The British Medical Journal and others have reviewed the evidence regarding which methods are most effective for smokers interested in breaking free of the smoking habit, and concluded that Nicotine dependence is most effectively treated with a combination of drugs and specialist behavioural support . . As detailed in the Statistics section below, multi-session psychological support from a trained counselor, either individually or in groups has been shown in clinical trials to provide the greatest benefit. An even better chance of success can be obtained by combining medication and psychological support (see below) Medication or pharmacological quitting-aids that have shown evidence of effectiveness in clinical trials include medical nicotine replacement patches or gum, the tricyclic anti-depressant nortriptyline[4],bupropion (Zyban, or Quomem in some countries), and the nicotinic partial agonist, varenicline (Chantix in the U.S. and Champix elsewhere). There are many people and organizations touting what are claimed to be effective methods of helping smokers to stop. Such claims of success are rarely backed up by independent comparative clinical trials or correctly calculated success rates. A separate thorough review of the evidence for each of several methods and aids for stopping smoking is available via the Cochrane Library website, Cochrane Library. [edit] Hazardous elements of Cigarette smoke Tobacco smoke contains over 4,000 chemicals, many of which have a harmful effect on the body. But the main components of tobacco smoke are nicotine, tar and carbon monoxide. Nicotine is the element in cigarettes that causes the sensation people become accustomed to and is the component that is addictive – more addictive than opium. Tar is a mixture of over 1,000 chemicals. It includes a variety of irritants and at least 60 compounds known to cause cancer. The smoke from cigarettes leaves tar deposits in the lungs and respiratory system which are absorbed through the rest of the body. Carbon monoxide is a poisonous gas present in cigarette smoke. It reduces the amount of oxygen the blood can carry to the body tissues and cells, including the heart. Pregnant women should be especially mindful of the effects of carbon monoxide on the body. Nicotine has only moderate impact on health, and its negative impact is negligible when compared to tar and carbon monoxide. It is the tar and carbon monoxide which cause the most serious damage to health. Smoking causes one in three of all cancer related deaths, including 90% of lung cancer deaths, 20% of all heart disease deaths and 90% of all deaths from bronchitis and emphysema. More than half of all smokers will die of illnesses related to smoking. And while most people associate smoking with lung cancer, few people realize that cardiovascular illnesses (heart) make up almost half of all smoking related deaths, due in part to the heavy strain placed on the heart by oxygen-robbing carbon monoxide in cigarette smoke. [edit] What to expect when you quit Quitting smoking is notoriously difficult. Approximately half of all attempts to quit smoking actually succeed, and most people who do successfully quit do so only after several attempts. Common short-term effects of smoking cessation are increased irritability, depression, anxiety, restlessness, insomnia, difficulty concentrating, increased appetite, rhinorrhea, cough, and increased susceptibility to upper respiratory tract infections. Reportedly these symtoms generally last for up to four weeks. Increased appetite for some, though, can continue for more than three months. These side effects, however, are minor compared to the health benefits of smoking cessation. [edit] Information for smokers trying to quit Smoking cessation services, which offer group or individual therapy can help people who want to quit. Some smoking cessation programs employ a combination of coaching, motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral therapy, and pharmacological counseling. Few smokers are successful with their very first attempt. Many smokers find it difficult to quit, even in the face of serious smoking-related disease in themselves or close family members or friends. A serious commitment to arresting dependency upon nicotine is essential. The typical effort of a person that finally succeeds is the seventh to fifteenth try. Each attempt is a learning experience that moves them that much closer to their goal of eventual permanent freedom from smoking. Some studies have concluded that those who do successfully quit smoking can gain weight. "Weight gain is not likely to negate the health benefits of smoking cessation, but its cosmetic effects may interfere with attempts to quit." (Williamson, Madans et al, 1991). Therefore, drug companies researching smoking-cessation medication often measure the weight of the participants in the study. Major depression may challenge smoking cessation success in women. Quitting smoking is especially difficult during certain phases of the reproductive cycle, phases that have also been associated with greater levels of dysphoria, and subgroups of women who have a high risk of continuing to smoke also have a high risk of developing depression. Since many women who are depressed may be less likely to seek formal cessation treatment, practitioners have a unique opportunity to persuade their patients to quit.[6] [edit] Methods of quitting smoking A 21mg dose Nicoderm CQ patch applied to the left arm. Techniques which can increase smokers' chances of successfully quitting are: * Quitting "cold turkey": abrupt cessation of all nicotine use as opposed to tapering or gradual stepped-down nicotine weaning. It is the quitting method used by 80[7] to 90%[8] of all long-term successful quitters. * Smoking-cessation support and counseling is often offered over the internet, over the phone quitlines (e.g. 1-800-QUIT-NOW), or in person. * Nicotine replacement therapy when used for less than eight weeks helped with withdrawal symptoms, cravings, and urges (for example, transdermal nicotine patches, gum, lozenges, sprays, and inhalers). Nicotine replacement therapy doubles the smoker's chances of quitting successfully. * The antidepressant bupropion, marketed under the brand name Zyban, helps with withdrawal symptoms, cravings, and urges. Bupropion is contraindicated in epilepsy, seizure disorder; anorexia/bulimia (eating disorders), patients use of psychosis drugs (MAO inhibitors) within 14 days, patients undergoing abrupt discontinuation of ethanol or sedatives (including benzodiazepines such as Valium)[9] * Nicotinic receptor antagonist varenicline (Chantix) (Champix in the UK) * Recently, an injection given multiple times over the course of several months, which primes the immune system to produce antibodies which attach to nicotine and prevent it from reaching the brain, has shown promise in helping smokers quit. However, this approach is still in the experimental stages. [1] * Hypnosis clinical trials studying hypnosis as a method for smoking cessation have been inconclusive. (The Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews 2006, Issue 3.) * Herbal preparations such as Kava and Chamomile * Acupuncture clinical trials have shown that acupuncture's effect on smoking cessation is equal to that of sham/placebo acupuncture. (See Cochrane Review) * Attending a self-help group such as Nicotine Anonymous[2] and electronic self-help groups such as Stomp It Out[3] * Laser therapy based on acupuncture principles but without the needles. * Quit meters: Small computer programs that keep track of quit statistics such as amount of "quit-time", cigarettes not smoked, and money saved. * Self-help books. * Spirituality Spiritual beliefs and practices may help some smokers quit.[4] * Smokeless tobacco: Snus is widely used in Sweden, and although it is much healthier than smoking, something which is reflected in the low cancer rates for Swedish men, there are still some concerns about its health impact. [5] * Herbal and aromatherapy "natural" program formulations. * Vaporizer: heats to 410°F. or less, compared with 1500°F./860°C. in the tip of a cigarette when drawn upon; eliminates carbon monoxide and other combustion toxins. * "FAUX Cigarette" or similar commercial products which can be used as alternative to smoking as well as cessation. * E-cigarette (Ruyan and others): Shaped like a cigar or cigarette, this device contains a rechargeable battery and a heating element that vaporizes liquid nicotine (and other flavorings) from an insertable cartridge, at lower initial cost than a vaporizer but with the same advantages including significantly reducing tar and carbon monoxide. * Screened single-toke utensil (minitoke)[10]: smoking-reduction utensil substitutes 25-mg. single servings for the heavily advertised trap of each time lighting an entire 700-mg. commercial cigarette. * Smoking herb substitutions (non-tobacco)[6] * Great American Smokeout is an annual event that invites smokers to quit for one day, hoping they will be able to extend this forever. [edit] Physiological & Psychological Effects Upon smoking cessation, the body begins to rid itself of naturally foreign substances introduced to the body through smoking. These include substances in the blood such as nicotine and carbon monoxide, and also accumulated particulate matter and tar from the lungs. As a consequence, though the smoker may begin coughing more, cardiovascular efficiency increases. Many of the effects of smoking cessation can be seen as landmarks, often cited by smoking cessation services, by which a smoker can encourage him or herself to keep going. Some are of a certain nature, such as those of nicotine clearing the bloodstream completely in 48 to 72 hours, and cotinine (a metabolite of nicotine) clearing the bloodstream within 10 to 14 days. Other effects, such as improved circulation, are more subjective in nature, and as a result less definite timescales are often cited. As with other addictions, apart from the dependence of the body on chemical substances, a smoking addiction is often related to everyday lifestyle events, which can include thinking deeply, eating, drinking tea, coffee or alcohol, or general socializing. As a result, smokers may miss the act of smoking particularly at these times, and this may increase the difficulty inherent in a cessation attempt. As a result of a lower dopamine response from nicotine receptors in the brain, a degree of depression may ensue, along with somatic responses where the smoker feels less able to perform the day to day tasks previously related to smoking without having the usual cigarette to accompany them. High stress often results when heavily addicted individuals or long-time smokers attempt to quit, in part because their everyday lifestyle events have been altered and they may miss the social interaction normally associated with the habit. Smoking cessation will almost always lead to a longer and healthier life. Stopping in early adulthood can add up to 10 years of healthy life and stopping in one's sixties can still add three years of healthy life (Doll et al, 2004). Stopping smoking is associated with better mental health and spending less of one's life with diseases of old age. The immediate effects of smoking cessation include: Information for healthcare professionals Several studies have found that smoking cessation advice is not always given in primary care in patients aged 65 and older,[11][12] despite the significant health benefits which can ensue in the older population.[13] One way to assist smokers who want to quit is through a telephone quitline which is easily available to all. Professionally run quitlines may help less dependent smokers, but those people who are more heavily dependent on nicotine should seek local smoking cessation services, where they exist, or assistance from a knowledgeable health professional, where they do not. Some evidence suggests that better results are achieved when counseling support and medication are used simultaneously.[citation needed] Quitting with a group of other people who want to quit is also a method of getting support, available through many organizations. Health professionals may follow the "five As" with every smoking patient they come in contact with:[14] 1. Ask about smoking 2. Advise quitting 3. Assess current willingness to quit 4. Assist in the quit attempt 5. Arrange timely follow-up [edit] Statistics A U.S Surgeon General's report includes tables setting forth success rates for various methods, some of which are listed below, ranked by success rate and identified by the Surgeon General's table number.[15] * Quitting programs combining counseling or support elements with a prescription for Bupropion SR (Zyban/Wellbutrin) found success rates were increased to 30.5 percent, (Surgeon General's Table 25). * Quitting programs involving 91 to 300 minutes of contact time increased six month success rates to 28 percent, regardless of other quitting method included Surgeon General's Report Table 13, page 59] * Quitting programs involving 8 or more treatment sessions increased six month success rates to 24.7 percent (Surgeon General's Table 14, page 60) * High intensity counseling of greater than 10 minutes increased six month success rates to 22 percent whether added to any other quitting method, nicotine replacement, or cold turkey Surgeon General's Report Table 12, page 58] * A physician's advice to quit can increase quitting odds by 30 percent to ten percent at six months Surgeon General's Report * Seven percent of those who used over-the-counter nicotine patch and gum products quit for at least six months
  • Fear that you'll have to give up your crutch or pleasure
  • Fear that you won't be able to enjoy life or handle stress
  • Fear that you will put on weight
  • Fear that you'll have to go through an awful trauma to get free
  • Fear that you'll never get completely free of the craving

All of these fears are just examples of one overriding fear. The one simple reason that you have not stopped smoking is that you:

Fear that it is going to be too painful and too difficult!

Hypnosis Makes it Easy

In fact, our unique hypnosis technique makes it so easy that after only one hour you'll leave a happy non-smoker - not feeling deprived, not feeling that you've made a sacrifice, and not feeling any pain. Instead, you'll have a huge sense of relief and elation that you have at last achieved what all smokers long to achieve, you have become a happy, permanent, non-smoker.

When smokers try to stop with other methods they suffer misery and depression caused by the feeling that they are being deprived of a pleasure or a crutch. The beauty of hypnosis, and the way we use hypnosis in particular, is that it removes this feeling of deprivation. It removes the need, and the desire, to smoke. You won't need useless aids, gimmicks, or substitutes. No nicotine gum or patches. No inhalers or nasal sprays. No needles or lasers. All that you have to do with hypnosis is sit back in a nice comfortable chair, and relax. It doesn't get much easier than that!
