I was a smoker for 20 years, and like everyone who has smoked for a long time, I made a few efforts over the years to quit, but I could never completely kick the habit. I tried the nicotine patch, nicotine gum, Chantix, cold turkey, but nothing seemed to work. In fact, the best success I had with quitting was when I quit for two years after having pneumonia!
That was all before I tried hypnosis for smoking cessation and quit for good.
Hypnosis for smoking cessation is a proven, highly effective method to stop smoking once and for all.
No matter how long you have been a smoker for, hypnosis breaks the habit for good for most people in as little as a single session.

I’ll be honest, even though I had already used hypnosis with great success for my own issues with stress and anxiety, I was skeptical about how effective hypnosis for smoking cessation was. When you’ve tried everything else and nothing seems to work, how could this be the thing that would do it? But hypnosis did the trick. I’ve never experienced anything that has helped navigate and neutralize the cravings that come with quitting smoking as effectively as hypnosis. And as anyone who has tried to quit smoking can tell you, getting past those cravings is the hardest part.
Hypnosis is a powerful state of focused awareness that can be used to uncover and dissolve the root cause of many issues people suffer from every day. Hypnosis allows you to access all the healing resources inherent within the subconscious mind, promoting natural healing from within. Hypnosis is used to help people discover the subconscious reasons for their symptoms, behaviors, or habits. When they are discovered, certain tools and techniques are used to help release them and relearn a new positive way of thinking subconsciously. This is called hypnotherapy. Hypnosis has been sanctioned and used by the medical community since 1958 to help patients overcome chronic pain, create anesthesia, and heal psychogenic illnesses.
Hypnosis works by achieving a level of focused awareness while at the same time bypassing the analytical aspect of the mind. Another way to describe the analytical aspect of the mind is that it is a comparing mechanism. When new information is introduced to the mind, the comparing mechanism compares the new information to what it already believes is either true or false. This is a protective aspect of our mind. This is why changing habits by willpower alone is so difficult – we often already believe we cannot change, so thinking about making the change happen (using willpower alone) is ineffective. Hypnosis is powerful because with focused awareness, the analytical aspect of the mind is bypassed, and new, healthy, and beneficial suggestions can be made directly into the subconscious, without the comparing mechanism rejecting these new beliefs. So, the change we want to achieve in our life is accepted by the subconscious mind as true, and we see results quickly.
Hypnosis is safe – it’s a perfectly normal and common state of mind we go into naturally every day. You enter hypnosis regularly when daydreaming, watching a good movie, or reading a book. During these activities you remain consciously aware and in complete control, just as you do when a professional hypnotherapist assists you into entering a state of hypnosis.
Hypnotherapy is the applied use of hypnosis. Hypnosis is used to help people discover the subconscious reasons for their symptoms, behaviors, or habits. When they are discovered, certain tools and techniques are used to help release them and relearn a new positive way of thinking subconsciously. This is called hypnotherapy.
Yes of course! You’ve already been hypnotized anytime you’ve watched an enjoyable movie, or read a good book. Hypnosis is a normal and natural state of mind that everyone has already experienced. Actually, it’s such a normal state of mind that most people don’t realize they are hypnotized. All you need to do to go into a state of hypnosis when coming into Elliott Bay Hypnosis is be willing and able to follow gentle instructions for reaching a state of focused awareness.
