One women told me her life had closed down. Smoking every evening she didn’t feel like going out and doing normal fun things like the movies or going to a restaurant.
She avoided staying at anyone else’s home and worried about being caught smoking while on holidays. Travel always involved extra risk of buying from unfamiliar people.
She was just sick and tired of smoking, but felt trapped in the loop of smoking to relax and reduce stress, but felt increasingly stressed about the effect it was having on her life and her health.
There was nothing cool about smoking anymore, she just felt like she was over it, except like so many bad habits humans have she kept doing it in spite of her wishes.
This is where hypnosis was so helpful. Consciously she wanted to quit, but her unconscious was locked in an old framework, back to the days when she did enjoy it, when her friends smoked and they laughed about getting the munchies and she felt pretty cool.
These memories were still alive in her unconscious mind, plus all the times she used pot to escape from her feelings
