Stop Smoking The Easy Way With EFT Tapping

Posted by – October 25, 2014

Stopping smoking is not normally an easy task for most of us mere mortals. And I am sure Superman does not smoke and has therefore never had the disappointment of trying then starting again. Think about it this way, though; most smokers stop every day, when they are asleep. Therefore it is possible.

So if you are thinking of quitting, have a look at these tips from my clinical experience with EFT and successful stop-smoking sessions. See how you feel about moving forward.

Smoking itself is not because of lack of willpower. You have the willpower to read this article. So you have the willpower to try different ways of quitting until you stop smoking for good.

You can set a stop smoking date and stick to it. Alternatively, you can reduce by 1-5 cigarettes a week and stop more gradually. Whichever strategy works best for you is fine.

Taking nicotine in any other form is still being addicted to it. Do not fool yourself that you have stopped if you have merely switched addictions or habits.

If you worry about weight gain, then surely you are using the cigarettes as an appetite suppressant. This is where a method like EFT can help. EFT goes to the roots of why there is a tendency to overeat, and removes those feelings from your mind-body. Then you no longer need to smoke to control your weight.

If you worry about cravings or a smoking desire, EFT is the easiest way I know of for releasing them on minutes. It usually takes less time to release a smoking craving with EFT than it takes to actually smoke a cigarette. So you can see why EFT makes sense.

And if you have stopped before but became moody or irritable, EFT is great for that. With EFT, we say that the moodiness or irritability was self-medicated away by the smoking. So if you stop smoking without releasing the underling uncomfortable emotions, then they simply make themselves known. It is better to use EFT for those feelings before stopping smoking. Then quitting should be easy.

EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Techniques and is the moat effective long-term results method that I know of for giving up smoking. Otherwise known as Tapping, EFT is a specific combination of self-applied easy acupressure and specific releasing wording. This combination is what makes EFT so powerful.

Maybe you can write a list of what you hope to achieve when you stop smoking. Make a list of all the positives. Then armed with that list, go seek out a good Stop Smoking EFT book, program, or practitioner. Enjoy your freedom!

5 Limiting Beliefs That Thwart Stop Smoking Efforts

Posted by – October 19, 2014

EFT, short for Emotional Freedom Techniques, blasts through these beliefs and then you can simply choose to stop smoking without a craving or discomfort to be felt. Why? Because these 5 beliefs keep that smoking desire in place. All are from my clinical experience with EFT and successful stop-smoking sessions. Without further ado, here they are.

  1. “I must always be perfect”. This belief makes people so nervous, they need a cigarette to calm down.
  2. “I will get fat”. If you use EFT, the root causes why you may wish to smoke are the same why you may wish to overeat, and both are obliterated at the same time.
  3. “I will be irritable”. You smoke because smoking takes away the irritability. Not-smoking does not cause irritability but merely unmasks it.
  4. “I will become one of those horrible non-smokers who keep shouting at their smoker friends to go outside”. EFT does not change your personality. It merely takes away the desire to smoke and leaves you calm and composed.
  5. “I will become a different person”. I have yet to see it. What do you expect to happen, that you turn yellow, blue, green, look like an alien? Another daft misconception.

Any other excuses? When you have finished reeling them out, try EFT. You may be very pleasantly surprised!

This Stop Smoking Expert’s Prayer Discussion With Shopkeeper

Posted by – May 2, 2014

This Stop Smoking Expert’s Erm, Heated, Prayer Discussion With Shopkeeper…

The Muslim shopkeeper nearest to my healing studio, otherwise a very nice man, whose hard work and dedication I truly appreciate, tried to get me to buy a packet of cigarettes. He is a very good salesman and I am sure he has persuaded many a would-be quitter to start again. Now here’s the thing, this is the second time he has tried it with me whilst the Islamic prayer was playing on his radio warning against the devil and doing the devil’s work. The first time, I just laughed and took the story to the security guard at work and we had a good laugh about it  😀 This time, well, it was too early in the morning for me to be ultra democratic, so I found myself telling him: “You need to make a choice. Your radio is warning against doing the devil’s work and you are doing just that by pushing cigarettes onto people who don’t want them. Either you turn the prayer off, stop pretending to be religious and push the cigarettes on anyone you like, or you listen to God’s word and put those cigarettes away.”

He put the cigarettes away. The look on his face was priceless. I hope this made him think twice that the words in the prayer are sacred, they are not just words. He can sell healthier things.

There you go. I say it how it is.

 

If you like my approach, and you know someone who needs to stop smoking, schedule a FREE initial Tapping Planning Session with me personally and find out exactly how you can best quit smoking for good!

My name is Suzanne Zacharia,and I specialize in getting you rid of bad habits and addictions, including the one that nearly took my life – smoking. For rapid EFT success, you need to be very specific and get quickly to the core of the issue, which I know how to lead you to, in a simple and easy way. EFT is now endorsed by several  famous doctors, including Deepak Chopra.. I work in London SE, in the centre of Bromley, easy to get to from London and Kent, and most clients prefer sessions over Skype or Whatsapp video.

And now for a short legal disclaimer… You are advised to consult with your medical practitioner before embarking on any course of alternative, complementary, or beauty therapy. Our use of systems that are trademarked or have a registered trademark represents our views and not necessarily those of the trademark owners. Whilst EFT has shown remarkable results, I do not recommend it to someone with psychosis, where other methods may work better (if in doubt, ask for the best method for you).

How do UK life insurance companies define a ‘smoker’ and a ‘non-smoker’?

Posted by – April 2, 2013

When you fill out an application to apply for life insurance you will be sent a long questionnaire to fill out. It is primarily on the basis of this that your life insurance premiums will be decided.

So how do UK life insurance companies define a ‘smoker’ and a ‘non-smoker’?

There are generally two different types of questions asked on these forms to determine whether or not you are a smoker. The following two examples are taken from the application form for the Legal & General Whole of Life plan although you are likely to find very similar examples elsewhere.

1. Have you used cigarettes, cigars, pipes, or nicotine replacements in the last 12 months – including occasional use?
2. If you smoke cigarettes how many do you, or did you, smoke on average each day?

 

The first question was found in the first section of the questionnaire entitled “Initial Client Details” and the second in “General Health and Lifestyle”. What this may imply is that the companies are attempting to obtain an honest answer by catching the reader off-guard. Moreover, it implies that the moment an employee of the firm sees the answer to that question your application is sorted into a particular pile right away.

It may surprise you to learn that it is on the basis of the first question that life insurance companies will decide whether or not to class you as a “smoker”. If you said “yes” to this question, even if you only had one cigar last Christmas, then you are going to be asked to pay the far higher insurance premiums that the insurer asks of all smokers.

“..If you are an occasional smoker looking for a life insurance policy it is perhaps best shopping around..”

You may, of course, end up paying far lower premiums than someone who later divulges that they smoke a pack a day. However, as we have already discussed, the difference between what a smoker and a non-smoker pay is large enough in itself.

There are, however, some companies who give a small “occasional smoker’s” allowance – they enumerate the number of cigars/cigarettes they believe an occasional smoker should smoke in a year and if you can say that you smoke fewer than that you will not have to pay the smoker’s premiums.

Most companies quote a number of around one a month or twelve a year. If you are an occasional smoker looking for a life insurance policy it is perhaps best shopping around until you find one of these as it could make a considerable difference to the amount you pay. The best way of doing this is usually to try talking to one of the company’s sales representatives and asking them to clarify their stance on occasional smokers.

How does smoking affect the cost of UK life insurance?

Posted by – April 2, 2013

How does smoking affect the cost of UK life insurance?

Smoking can affect the size of your life insurance premiums in two different ways. Firstly, most providers will charge a smoker’s premium to anyone that says they have smoked within the last twelve months. However, there is another way that smoking affects premiums and that is by deciding the insurance band you will be assigned to. Insurers generally assign every applicant to one of three insurance bands depending on their level of health. These are: Standard, Preferred and Preferred Plus.

If you have smoked within the last year you will probably be assigned to the Standard band, no matter how often you exercise or how healthily you eat. Generally, insurers will not allow anyone into the Preferred band unless they can say they have not smoked within the last three years, and five years for the Preferred Plus band.

 

Over the course of your insurance term the difference in premiums between those classed in Preferred and Preferred Plus bands will usually amount to thousands of pounds. This means that even if you identify as a non-smoker, smoking can make a huge difference to the cost of your life insurance.

The most important difference is between regular smokers and those who have smoked within the last twelve months. In 2011, Sainsbury’s Financial published research which said that the average annual life insurance premium for a smoker was £209.76 while for a non-smoker it was just £113.88.

Over the course of a standard twenty year insurance term the difference between them adds up to £1917.6. What’s more is that this is only an average. Many smokers will be paying far higher premiums than this on the basis of the fact that they smoke alone.

Other research by the Money Saving Expert calculates that the hidden insurance cost of smoking could amount to over £30,000 over twenty years. The problem with this research is that it is a deliberately unrepresentative number, calculated on the basis of someone who has purchased term assurance, critical illness insurance, private medical insurance and permanent health insurance. As such, this should be treated as a maximum figure that helps to illustrate the fact that smoking makes health insurance a lot more expensive. To read more about how they calculate these numbers, go to: http://www.moneysavingexpert.com/family/quit-smoking-cheaply

The biggest difference between smokers and non-smokers is found with term life assurance and critical illness insurance – the two most common types mentioned above. A non-smoker generally saves 55% on the first and 50% on the second compared to a smoker. Term assurance is a type of policy which consists of an agreement that the insurer will pay out a fixed sum (or occasionally that they will cover your mortgage) if you die within a fixed term. This is the most common kind of life insurance and, unfortunately, also the most expensive for smokers.

Critical illness insurance is a form of insurance policy that agrees to pay out if you are diagnosed with one of a list of critical illnesses. It is another type of policy popular in the UK as it generally allows people to provide for their families in the event that they are rendered unable to work as well as helping cover the costs of medical care. The Money Saving Expert calculates that there is an average £24,000 price difference between smokers and non-smokers for this type of policy over the course of a twenty year term.

With private medical insurance you will only achieve a saving of 5% as they are generally based more on an assessment of your current rather than of your lifestyle. Permanent health insurance, or insurance that agrees to continue to pay your salary or wage if illness prevents you from working, generally differs by about 25%. Yet again, this amounts to a cost of thousands of pounds over the duration of the plan.

What is clear from all of these figures is that there is never any time when the affect of smoking on an insurance policy is small. Any calculation of how much money you would save by giving up smoking (by spending less on cigarettes, chewing gum, air fresheners etc.) will be out by thousands of pounds if it does not also take into account the cost of your life insurance.

Kinesiology-Based Bio-Feedback In My Cape Town Stop-Smoking Session

Posted by – August 18, 2011

Most people in Cape Town take a number of sessions to quit smoking, unlike my UK clients, who usually stopped in one session. This is because there are more factors tying a Capetonian to smoking. So we are left with a dilemma. A smoker who wants to stop smoking needs some reassurance that the methods are working. But the methods are chipping away at the smoking in each session rather than releasing it all in one. So I have come up with a reduction plan, which is becoming increasingly popular. At the end of each session, I would sit down with the client and agree a maximum number of cigarettes a day that they felt they could cut down to, giving them the confidence that their treatment was working.

However, although most now ex-smokers on this plan have done very well, some smokers came back discouraged that they could not stick to the plan. The problem was that the reduction was determined by the the clients’ subjective wish to succeed, want to save money on sessions and cigarettes, and need to be in control. It was not an objective assessment of the state of mind of the client. It usually was perfectly spot-on and worked, but when it did not, that was not good enough for me. I started doing kinesiology-based muscle-testing to objectively find root causes of the clients’ smoking desire, and that was both full of great revelations to the client, and it was also a great way to go beyond denialism, the greatest block in any smoker’s path to recovery. Once the smoker was face-to-face with what their mind-body was clearly saying, they owned it and worked with me to let it go. This was a great success. And then, I thought why not use the muscle-testing for an objective measure of the reduction that is right for each particular ex-smoker-to-be?! Well, I am pleased to say that it is working a charm.

Kinesiology-based muscle-testing is a way of using a muscle to tell us objectively what is going on in the mind-body. This ranges from pathogens to food intolerance to emotions. Muscles used for this bio-feedback mechanism are usually in an arm or leg. The muscle chosen gives two types of feedback; strong, and weakened. “Marcelle” (not her real name) came to see me in my Cape Town treatment studio for stopping smoking. At the end of her session, I wanted to know how many cigarettes she could reduce to. I was concerned, because we had a holiday coming up when she had to wait longer for her second session that I would have liked. She smoked 15 cigarettes a day when she came to see me, so I was worried about gauging this correctly. The muscle-test came up with a strong muscle when she repeated “I can easily reduce to 12 cigarettes a day”. And so we used this number for moving forward. Had we not used muscle-testing, Marcelle may have tried to cut down further, only to end up disappointed. This way, we knew what we were dealing with.

The target of 12 a day had indeed been successful. And then Marcelle’s mother made a very abusive visit, and Marcelle turned to cigarettes as a way out of the distress. So we treated this, and at the end of the second session, We tested for number of cigarettes again. 14 Gave a strong muscle, as did 12. At 11 cigarettes a day, the muscle started to wobble, and at 10, the muscle lost its strength. So we agreed to cut down to 11-12 a day until the next appointment.

At the next appointment, I was delighted to hear that not only was the 11-12 a day target realistic, but it was even bettered. The reason why was that Marcelle had tapped during a mother visit where her mother was again being abusive. Marcelle told me that she asked herself whether it would be better to tap and look silly or smoke and feel defeated, and she decided to tap. And so she was able to remain strong and even exceeded our expectations. If you are not familiar with tapping, this is a revolutionary new self-help and practitioner-application method called EFT that can help make you stronger. At the end of this session, we muscle-tested again. A maximum of 10, 9, 8, and 7 cigarettes a day all gave a strong muscle. The muscle started to wobble at 6 cigarettes a day and went weak at 5. And so we set a target of 6-9 a day.

After this, an unexpected ongoing disastrous situation happened in Marcelle’s life which the muscle-testing could not have predicted. We then changed the treatment to one of disaster management rather than forward progress. When the situation finally stopped, Marcelle went back to the program with a plan of 7 cigarettes a day. We then kept reducing till Marcelle reached zero number.

The muscle-testing made a big difference in showing Marcelle what her subconscious mind really wanted. This is because you cannot truly stop smoking unless all parts of you are in agreement. And many a smoker who is unsuitable for a one-session stop smoking program wants to fool themselves that they will stop in one session, and then they feel hopeless and ashamed when they fail. This is not to say that many smokers quit in one session. Many do. Of course they do. However, in high-stress places like Cape Town, where Marcelle is, most smokers need a bit longer than one session. And this is where muscle-testing can really help the person move forward. When the smoker literally sees their subconscious mind speaking to them, they do listen. It is a very powerful tool indeed.

Finally – Stop Smoking Success For This Well-Deserving Cape Town Lady

Posted by – August 18, 2011

“Marcelle” (not her real name) quietly handed me her progress sheet today with nothing on it. She said the reason it was unfilled was because she had not smoked! Yes! She has now been smoke-free for a week! I am absolutely delighted, and she is very proud of herself.

When I first met Marcelle, she did not want to stop smoking. But since seeing how easily her relatives stopped, she asked to see me. This is what is so poignant about this case. Her relatives stopped in 2-3 sessions, but she needed longer. Had Marcelle come for treatment without knowing how easy it was for them, she would have probably given up giving up, like many others do, if they find out it is going to take longer. They do not understand that it is a personal thing and start blaming the process, the practitioner, anything that the hooked mind will direct the anger and frustration at. Anything, that is, except the real causes. But Marcelle trusted the process that she had seen work for others. She realised it was a personal thing, and everyone goes at their own pace. And she is a non-smoker now.

There was big theme running in Marcelle’s sessions. This was a childhood full of abuse from her mother. Now, before you think of psychology, banish that thought from your mind. Think energy healing. The problem with most talk therapy is that you talk about the problem, bring it to the surface, making the wound raw again, and not be able to do anything with it except get insights and try to get used to it. With energy healing, we simply release the energy disruption, or energy imprint, left by the traumatic events. This does for some people bring up traumatic memories of counselling or psychotherapy. If you suspect this may happen with you, and you are going for EFT energy healing treatment, then simply let your practitioner know that you have this problem. Then, they can work on releasing the trauma of going through psychotherapy out of your system first. Anyway, luckily, Marcelle had not been through this kind of trauma, and so we were able to go to this energy disruption and chip away at it session by session. After the 14th session, enough of it was gone, and Marcelle became a calm non-smoker.

 

Two important things happened in the 13th and 14th sessions. One was that we worked on some of the things her husband did which reminded her too much of her mother. And so we released that connection and the attached pain. Another is that I suspected the smoking was stubbornly refusing to go because Marcelle was undergoing a tough time with her child who was mixing with the wrong crowd, and she could not cope with the stress on her own. I wondered if this was a way for Marcelle’s subconscious to bring her back to see me for healing. And so I tapped on her as I said that she does not have to smoke to see me, and I would be more than happy to see her to support her through this difficult time. I really do not know for sure about this factor, but I treated it anyway, in case it may be a secondary gain. And today, Marcelle came to see me for just the stress-release, and it was great to see her face beaming with pride as she announced her success!

I will be continuing to see Marcelle for as long as she wants to. It certainly is cheaper and healthier than cigarettes! I am also helping her to re-gain her health after all those years of smoking damage. Well done, Marcelle. You hung on in there and refused to give up. And you are a big success. Thank you so much for your story.

Marcelle enjoyed EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), kinesiology-based muscle-testing, and 635 nm cold laser. All are energy methods. All are suitable for anyone unless they have schizophrenia or are suffering with psychosis, in which case a mixture of gentle kinesiology-based methods and Reiki can be used. None of these methods are against any religion or interfere with other treatments.

Marcelle did it. Now there is no reason why you should not.

Stop Smoking EFT – And Some Weight Loss Too – Cape Town Case Study

Posted by – July 27, 2011

If you want to stop smoking with EFT and wonder how to structure your progress, there is much you can learn from “Marcelle” (not her real name). Marcelle is the third amongst her relatives to quit using EFT. Although they quit in 2-3 sessions, her progress is over a longer period of time. She is using a gradual reduction of smoking plan. The way this works is that in every stop-smoking session she attends, the EFT releases some more of the underlying reasons why she smoked, and then she can reduce her smoking accordingly, with the ultimate target being zero cigarettes. EFT, as you may know, is short for Emotional Freedom Techniques. It involves bringing to the surface a little bit of the energy disruption behind a problem using words, and then letting it go, using a specialised form of acupressure.

Marcelle’s last reduction plan was 2-5 cigarettes a day. And she has stuck to it. This is despite life throwing her two major curveballs. One was an ongoing serious problem which Marcelle has no way to control. And the other was a big challenge involving her daughter, who was mixing with the wrong crowd. We tapped on both of those matters. To be honest, due to the severity of these issues, what mainly happened is that I tapped on her points continuously as she talked and tried to find ways to cope or deal with these two major challenges. We reduced both down to a 2 and 4 out of 10 respectively which was the best that could be done under the circumstances. Marcelle now has a plan of action to resolve the daughter challenge, and she felt much better as a result.

The last thing treated in this session was how she felt about her husband’s behaviour. He was on life-saving medication for a physical condition. However, this gave him terrible mood swings. We had worked on this before, and so it was not surprising that it started at a 5 out of 10 in intensity in this session. We soon brought it down to zero, in about 20 minutes of tap-and-talk, as above.


Share on Facebook

And really, that was all that we did in this 90-minute session. There was no “direct” work on any smoking desire this time. We concentrated purely on the stress in Marcelle’s life. At the end of the session, we agreed to keep to the same target on the reduction plan, with emphasis on the lower end. Marcelle is going slowly but surely in the right direction. She is also losing weight, as the stresses that lead to smoking also lead to overeating, so she is hitting two birds with one stone by going at a slow but comfortable pace. If you or someone you know have tried everything and are still smoking, I hope you have found inspiration and comfort from Marcelle’s story.
