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!

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.

Stop Smoking EFT Cape Town Case Study – 3 Emotional Root Causes

Posted by – April 24, 2011

“Marcelle” is seeing me for stopping smoking. We are doing a gradual cut-down plan, which is great for smokers who have a large emotional element to their smoking and therefore cannot stop in just one session. To do this, we do as much treatment as we can fit into each session and assess at the end how free Marcelle is, cutting down accordingly. This is a relatively easy and pain-free process.

We are carrying out the treatment using Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) and kinesiology-based muscle-testing and treatment. EFT involves stimulating the end-points of certain meridian energy lines whilst using releasing wording. Muscle-testing is based on kinesiology techniques, and is a fairly accurate diagnostic tool for determining the state of mind of the client. EFT is my method of choice for releasing the underlying emotions to the urge to smoke. The muscle-testing helps me determine how successful we have been in an objective way, so than we can then plan the next step forward. EFT gave Marcelle a great deal of calm in this session. Like any other healing modality, EFT sometimes results in a gentle release, and this time the release was with a few tears, but this soon went away, and Marcelle was left with feelings of peace and calm, and desire to move forward. She had seen how a relative had released with laughter when they attended their sessions, and so she knew she was safe and protected in her session. Although EFT can be self-applied, I find that tapping on clients whilst they are lying down comfortably is gentler for big traumas. And Marcelle had given me a big trauma behind her smoking urges. We approached this very gently, and in this session, I chose to only take the edges off it, so that Marcelle would be thoroughly comfortable with the process. But before we approached this trauma, we worked on a general fear and on an innocuous specific smoking issue. This was to help Marcelle ease into the treatment and feel happily confident about it. So, in this session, we made good headway with three emotional root causes:

1. The fear of stopping smoking.
2. Overeating, which was kept at bay with smoking.
3. Childhood trauma of physical and emotional abuse.

Marcelle reported a fear of stopping smoking of value 10 out of 10 before we started. So I started with “Even though there is this fear of stopping smoking…” and peppered it with statements that made it comical, like “Oh my God, what am I going to do” in a funny tone of voice, which also helped Marcelle feel more at ease. We then took a detour to tap on overeating. I started by tapping “Even if you didn’t smoke, there is the fear of eating more, you can deeply accept yourself anyway”. We tapped around on this theme, and then I asked her if she did not smoke, what would she most likely binge on? She said “Luxury”. I asked her which luxury, to which she replied “Wholenut chocolate”. This immediately implied a need for luxury, rewards, a treat, and feelings of deprivation. So we tapped on all those. And we tapped on “this Wholenut chocolate desire” too. The chocolate desire went from a 5 out of 10 to a 2 and ended at about zero. After that, the fear of stopping smoking was down to a 5 out of 10 – half its value just 20 minutes previously. Next we started working on the trauma. Marcelle had said that she was the black sheep of her family, always blamed for anything and given hidings. I asked her how upset she felt when I said “black sheep of the family”, and she said 5. We tapped very gently on this statement and it went from a 5 out of 10 to a then a 1. We used gentle EFT with some inner child work, helping the young Marcelle feel good about herself, exonerating her from blame and taking her to a safe nice place. After that, the fear of stopping smoking was a 3, although we had not worked directly on it again. I explained that this was because the childhood trauma was a root cause of the smoking, and that by releasing it, we can move forward with ease. At the end of the session, we used muscle-testing to objectively determine how many cigarettes a day Marcelle can cut down to. This was 12 a day, 3 less than usual. I gave her a simple EFT tapping to do on the Karate chop as homework, and we set the next appointment.

Read on in this series of articles to see how Marcelle is doing. These are written as they happen, so that anyone who is looking for help can know that they are real, genuine treatments. Whether you are looking to stop smoking, or if you are a stop-smoking practitioner, I hope this article has given you useful ideas. And many thanks to my lovely client for permission to write about her case.

Stop Smoking EFT and Kinesiology-Based Testing in Cape Town – Case History and Background

Posted by – April 24, 2011

“Marcelle” saw her family benefit from EFT tapping and Kinesiology-based muscle-testing and treatment. She was interested in stopping smoking using these techniques. And I am delighted that she has graciously agreed for me to write about her treatment so that others can benefit from this powerful combination. I am writing about “Marcelle’s” treatment as it unfolds, so you know that it is for real.

 

Marcelle was a 15-a-day smoker. In my experience, this implies deep emotional reasons for smoking. A 20-a-day or 10-a-day smoker tends to smoke one packet and when finished, simply have to stop for that day. There are packets of 20 for most smokers, which supply enough cigarettes to fit into the hours available normally for smoking. And the packets of 10 are usually used in Cape Town by those who cannot quite afford a packet of 20 and have to ration their cigarettes to last. For someone who is more physically than emotionally addicted to contain themselves and not smoke the 5 remaining in a packet of 20 is very unusual. And so, I was not surprised to learn that underneath that strong exterior, there was some past turmoil for Marcelle to release.

Marcelle had been the black sheep of her family of 7. She was blamed in childhood for whatever went wrong, and then given a hiding for it. She had recurring lower back pain in the coccyx or SI joint area, which in terms of energy healing means the need to let go of issues, an insecurity, and the need to belong or feelings of rejection. It transpired that the latter was indeed the case, as she had been picked on at school by snobbish children. The pain has been more prevalent in just over the past year without any obvious physical cause, which suggests that something emotionally significant has occurred just before a year ago. Marcelle also has had a few health scares in the past year or so, including a benign breast cyst, as well as challenges with blood sugar levels and high blood pressure for a couple of months. The health scares also indicate some emotional stresses at the time. Luckily, family members with problems that may have contributed to this stress have already been successfully treated, but it is something to watch out for anyway, in case Marcelle has any residual stress from that lurking about in her energy system.

Armed with information, we proceeded with the first session. We treated mainly one general issue from childhood, in order to reduce its impact on the need to smoke. We then determined that is was good to proceed with cutting down to 12 cigarettes a day, I gave Marcelle simple, non-triggering homework to do, and we happily arranged our next appointment. I predict that Marcelle will be mostly able to stick to the 12-a-day agreed reduction, and that we will be able to reduce this further next time. She knows that her treatment will not be as fast as some relatives’ treatments and is happy with waiting. Mostly, this is because she knows that everything will proceed at a pace that is very comfortable for her, and that it will be easy for her to succeed.

EFT is a great way to release the emotional (otherwise referred to as habitual) components of smoking gently and effectively. Short for Emotional Freedom Techniques, EFT involves stimulating easy-to-reach acupressure points whilst repeating a releasing phrase. EFT is best performed in the waking state, where you are fully awake, and you remain conscious at all times. Kinesiology-based muscle-testing is a remarkable tool where the muscles in an arm or leg are used for bio-feedback from the mind-body. Using this bio-feedback enables a quick and far-reaching conversation with the unconscious mind that you can experience in the waking state. This in turn enables a fast and effective negotiation with the unconscious mind that enables you to break past barriers to success and move forward towards your goals. Thank you, Marcelle, for providing this case study for the benefit of all.

Is EFT Tapping an Instant Cure from Smoking?

Posted by – November 19, 2010

EFT, which stands for Emotional Freedom Techniques, is a great tool that helps you help yourself. It is used for almost any physical or emotional condition. And it works relatively quickly. Because of that, and because professionals using it want to encourage others to use it, it is mainly the stories about fast recovery that abound on the internet and in the press. For example, most ex-smokers that I have helped in the UK to quit did so in one session with EFT and did not need to use EFT for smoking again; and I wrote about it to encourage others to quit. This leaves some users disappointed, as they think that the EFT is not working and give up. For example, about 70% quit in one session and 30% came back for more sessions. There was nothing wrong with the 30%. Not at all. They just had more blocks in their path that we needed to remove with EFT, and that´s perfectly OK.

Let me give an analogy. Most of us have used headache pills or powders at various points in our lives. And most people have a bottle or box of pain-relief pills in their home. The reason is that we might need them. And in that case, we might just pop a pill and the pain would go away and we would just get on with whatever it is we need to do. And I know that for a lot of us who prefer holistic alternative health, popping pills is not the answer, but hey, there were times when I have just wanted a pill and so took one. What I am trying to say is that as a society, we think nothing of taking a pill for a headache or other pain if needed. And that we do so because it works. We know it works, because the pain goes away, and then we can get on with our lives.

Let me show you this from a slightly different angle. We take a pill for a headache, and it makes the headache go away, and we accept that. And even though that particular headache is gone, we still keep a stock of pills available. And we never even question why. It is obvious; we keep a stock of pain-relief tablets in case we get another pain later that we need to quickly get rid of. And that, realistically speaking, is OK. We are happy with that.

But let me ask you about another scenario. We get a physical or emotional pain, use EFT on it, and it goes away. Some people then become very surprised if that pain comes back, and then say the EFT did not work. But they are still happy to take a painkiller, even though they have taken many before in their life and the pain came back!

And just like the pain tablets do work, so does EFT!

Additionally, just like the pain may re-appear or a different pain may appear, we think nothing of taking another pain-killer. And so we should think nothing of using EFT again either!

Now, I am neither advocating taking pain-killers nor pushing doing EFT instead of taking a pain-killer. What I am saying here is look at the way we happily consider pain-killers effective, even though we may have to take them again on another occasion, and that we should look at EFT in the same light. Despite whatever anyone promises you about EFT, yes, most of the things that are said about its quickness and effectiveness are totally true, but it is a tool that can be used over and over again for many physical and emotional issues, and it is OK to keep using it on one issue for a few months before a more permanent solution is found. And even then, we are continually exposed to emotional hurt and physical mishaps, so it makes sense that we continue using EFT in our lives; just like most of us use that handy headache tablet.

EFT Tapping is a great way to release the vast majority of physical or emotional conditions gently and effectively. If it is new to you, you can download a free guide from many online resources and find out more for yourself. Or you can dive right in and work with an experienced practitioner.

Tapping is a great way to release a phobia gently and effectively. It worked for me. You can download a free guide from many online resources and find out more for yourself. Or you can dive right in and work with an experienced practitioner.
