Stop Smoking In 9 Easy Steps

About 6 months ago, I got an email from a buyer of Stop Smoking In 9 Easy Steps. She just wanted a little extra help with an issue in order for everything in the book to go faster for her. We worked briefly together, she went back to her book, and yesterday, she sent me the following in an email.

“I Tell Everyone About You And Your Book”

“I wanted to thank you for all of your help with quitting smoking. Smoking was something that I had struggled with for so long. I knew inside I was not a smoker, and thanks to you for your help I am free from that need to put harmful smoke and chemicals in my body. (almost 5 months now). Thank you also for helping me with other issues too, especially with the worry about my children. I am sure it was helpful in freeing myself from that nicotine trap. I appreciate that you helped me even though I didn’t have a lot of money. You are an amazing person, kind and caring too. I am so glad to have met you.

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.

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 EFT and Kinesiology-Based Methods Are Better Than Even Hypnosis To Stop Smoking

Posted by – June 23, 2011

Welcome to the continuing story of “Marcelle” (not her real name), one determined ex-smoker-to-be slowly but surely overcoming a stubborn smoking addiction. To give you some background, I have a good history of helping smokers quit in one session in London and usually within 6 sessions in Cape Town (different cultural stresses). Marcelle’s relatives quit with me in 2-3 sessions, and she does understand the benefits of going at her own pace, which is relatively slower but a very healing process.

 

We are using a mixture of EFT, Emotional Freedom Techniques, or Tapping, and kinesiology-based muscle-testing and treatment. The treatment is gentle and removes the emotional reasons behind the smoking. As these are removed, Marcelle is able to smoke less. Every time that we can, we draw up a plan to cut down on the daily number of cigarettes smoked. The last target that Marcelle had was 7 cigarettes. It is the 10th session, and Marcelle showed me her progress sheet. She had stuck to her target 3 days out of 6. On one of the days, she even went below it. So we started with a quick analysis.

The first part of the analysis was talking about the progress sheet to identify areas that needed more work. The three days of smoking more had several stress and habit factors. The most important (in my experience) were the following:
* A visit to relatives who kept giving Marcelle cigarettes to smoke with them, saying “Oh, take a cigarette”.
* A day which started with Marcelle saying to herself “Today, I’m going to improve”.

Then I started the muscle-testing. We tested for a few things that came up not relevant, and then I asked Marcelle to repeat “I´m going to improve” whilst pressing on her arm. The arm went weak. In other words, there is something about “I am going to improve” that made Marcelle fail that day. We talked a bit about that and investigated the theme of the following ideas that Marcelle felt were related:
* “My mother never stops criticizing me, and so will not stop if I stop smoking, so what’s the point”.
* “I’m going to fail anyway, so I may as well fail now”.
* “No matter how much I improve, my mother will not love me”.

I then asked Marcelle to find a time in her life that encapsulates the above. She came up with a specific childhood memory that on the surface seemed totally unrelated. But it had many aspects of root causes of smoking. The story started when Marcelle had been given some money by a visiting uncle. The rule was that she had to hand that money over to her mother. But on that occasion, Marcelle, wanting to keep the money away from her abusive mother, left to the shop as soon as the uncle had left, and she bought a big bag of sweets with all the money. Upon her return, her mother threw her out on the porch in the dark. She was out there for several hours before her father came home and let her back in. The event started at an intensity of 8. We tapped in down to about a zero, tapping on all the following aspects:
* The hurt.
* That no matter what Marcelle did, she got a hiding from her mother, so she may as well be naughty anyway.
* The danger of being out alone in the dark as a helpless child.
* That she physically could not eat all those sweets, although she had them with her when she was thrown out, and her mother and sisters finished them afterwards.
* That her mother will never stop criticizing her.
* That her mother will never act proud of her or be approving of her.
* That her mother continues to treat her badly, in start contrast to the favored sister, who gets the good treatment.
* Smoking is a rebellion against her mother, who does not like her smoking.
* Guilt about not loving her mother like a daughter “should”.

By the end of this tapping, Marcelle was so relaxed she was almost asleep. We tested again for “I’m going to improve”, and it tested strong and clear.

We then tapped on other smoking issues, clearing them. And finally we muscle-tested for a new smoking reduction plan. Marcelle tested weak for 7 cigarettes a day and strong for 6 a day and 5 a day. This is good, meaning that she really did not want to smoke more than 6. So we drew up a new plan of a maximum of 6 a day.

The plan also includes exercise. As we were setting up the new version, Marcelle proudly announced that she had had to take her jeans in at the hips. Now how’s that for a great treatment? She is losing the cigarettes and weight! And she is overcoming the many years of abuse without any psychotherapy, without painful talking about the issue over and over again, nor anything like that. Every time she leaves her session, she feels lighter and stronger, her face radiant and calm. This is why I like this treatment so much; because it is holistic and gentle, the results far-reaching into every aspect of the person´s life and well-being. Now who do you know who did hypnosis-only and got these great additional results?! As always, I look forward to the next session!

Latest Success In Previously-Challenging Cape Town Stop Smoking Case

Posted by – June 17, 2011

When “Marcelle” (not her real name) first came to see me, she was smoking about 15 cigarettes a day. The day before her 9th session, this was down to 7 a day. And now, after a few weeks’ stalemate, she has succeeded to stick to her last reduction plan, which was 9 cigarettes a day. Each cigarette represents negative emotion. We have been releasing plenty of these, and now, finally, the number is less than half what we started with. Marcelle was very proud.

 

If you have been following this series of articles, I am also pleased to report that the disastrous happening in Marcelle’s life is now over. The EFT we did has clearly helped her through it, as she has simply bounced back to her usual cheerful self now.

Whilst Marcelle’s relatives had quit with me in 2-3 sessions, including her husband, she does understand the benefits of going at her own pace, and that this is OK. Marcelle reported that she feels she has grown and developed through this healing journey. She has become a stronger person and feels different. This is what happens when you quit smoking using EFT, Emotional Freedom Techniques, otherwise known as Tapping. It is truly a journey to freedom from many negative emotions, so you feel lighter and calmer as a result.

We started Marcelle’s session with kinesiology-based muscle-testing. This is a biofeedback mechanism that gives information about the body and speaks with the subconscious mind. The testing revealed an imbalance in neurotransmitters on the left part of her brain. We proceeded to treat with a 635 nm cold laser.

Next came the emotional stuff underlying the smoking. I tapped on Marcelle as she verbally walked me through her average day’s smoking, from start to finish. Her voice became strained and her shoulders looked stiff when she came to one particular part, so we stopped there for tapping. The situation was teaching her grandson and helping him with his homework. The grandson insists that his teacher’s way of doing things is the right way and will not consider any other approaches that Marcelle takes. The desire to smoke after this homework session started on a 9 out of 10 intensity. Marcelle said that after all that, she needed a treat. We began tapping saying statements like “Even though I need this treat…” and “Even though I don’t want to deprive myself of this treat”. The intensity reduced to a 6 out of 10. And then I tapped on Marcelle something like “Even though he insists his teacher is right, at least he is respectful of his teachers, and that’s a great attribute than many kids don’t have”. Marcelle agreed, citing a story with one of her daughters, and how she did better when she learned to like her teacher. But still, Marcelle was unhappy about this teacher adoration, so much so, she still wanted that cigarette. I asked her if there could be a parallel in her own childhood and life where her mother favors her sister all the time. She agreed and saw the connection straight away. So we released this block with Inner Child tapping, and Marcelle no longer desired the after-homework cigarette. It was a zero intensity.

Marcelle then carried on walking me through her smoking day. We came at a point which I know from experience to be relevant. This was a cigarette smoked with a favorite close person. The person in question was her aunt, let’s call her “Auntie Nelly”. We started at a need to smoke with Auntie Nelly of 6 out of 10, which went down to 5 after some tapping. I kept tapping on Marcelle as I asked her if this aunt is like a mother to her, since her mother was abusive and not like a mother. Marcelle agreed, and we tapped on all aspects of this, until finally, the desire was about a zero, and Marcelle could see herself happily just being with Auntie Nellie as she alone smoked. The bond keeping the two so close together was love, and there was no need to cement it with a cigarette.

Lastly, we tapped on one more daily cigarette, and moved on to the muscle-testing. 7 Cigarettes a day tested strong, and 6 and 5 a day were weaker, so we set anew target of 7 cigarettes a day. I look forward to our next session!

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.

Stop Smoking By Solving These Reasons

Posted by – March 28, 2011

So you want to stop smoking. It is good to take some time first to ask yourself why. The reasons why you want to stop can be a very strong incentive and motivation for you, and that is all good and well. But these are not the real reasons that I am talking about.

You may have expected to read motivation in this article to keep strong. For example, motivation about your health, your family, your looks, your teeth, all the money you will save, your smell, and your freedom from the constrictive habit, to name just a few of the common reasons. But just suspend your beliefs for a while and let me show you some other reasons.

So, amongst these are reasons why you smoke. Armed with these reasons, and maybe a few more of your own, you now have a list of reasons that bind you to the smoking. Release these reasons, and you release that link to smoking. Every one of these reasons is a block in your path to success. But with the right techniques, you can bulldoze your way through and smash every block to smithereens! You can release every one of those reasons out of your system and break free!

The best method I know of to help you do just that is EFT, or Emotional Freedom Techniques. known also as Tapping, EFT uses a combination of acupressure and releasing wording to set you free the really easy way. It is suitable for almost everyone, unless you have schizophrenia or psychosis, in which case other methods are recommended, such as the gentler energy techniques like Reiki or Kinesiology. Whatever route you take, I wish you every success breaking through those reasons and reaching that beautiful place of freedom!

A virus caught along with 5 other students at university at the end of 1986, plus medical negligence, meant that I got smokers lung at a relatively young age. In desperation for help with my symptoms and quality of life, I turned to complementary therapy, and I have outlived one doctor’s prognosis by many years now.

I am now a complementary therapist, author of the Stop Smoking E-book at http://www.quit-smoking-ebook.com and trainer specializing in energy healing. Want to use this article?
