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!

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.

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.

How To Release The Need To Be Perfect And Stop Smoking

Posted by – October 12, 2010

An unhealthy need to be perfect may seem just a drive for excellence, but there is a difference. It is one thing to aim to get things right and be the best you can be, and quite another to feel under constant pressure to perform. And the stress of this pressure keeps many a perfectionist smoker struggling in vain to give up.

And most smokers with an unhealthy need to be perfect do not recognize where this difference lies. Typically, they report having a need to smoke or a habit of smoking. Part of the unhealthy need to be perfect I the denial of imperfection. However, there is a way to find out, and there is a solution.

To find out if you have this unhealthy need, simply ask yourself how true this statement is:

I must always be perfect.
Rate the Validity Of Cognition, or truth value of this statement from a 10 to zero, where 10 is totally true and zero is totally false.

If this statement is anything above a zero, then you have just found one big emotional belief that blocks your stop-smoking success. You can now release this belief with effective modern energy psychology methods such as EFT. As you EFT this statement, you may gain many insights and have events come up for healing. This is a great opportunity to release those insidious drivers of smoking that lurk under the surface.

 

The best results are achieved after every aspect of this statement is tapped down to a zero. And then, you will find quitting smoking a much easier process.
