10 Tips on How to Quit Smoking
by Darren Hiller, CH

1. Believe you can quit. Studies have shown that belief that you can quite is the most important trait in successful quitters.
2. You must be motivated. Ask yourself on a scale of 1 Ė 10 (Ten being the most) how motivated you are? If you are not at least an 7, you are not ready. If you are not quite ready, write a list of the reasons you want to quit, and put it on a bulletin board. Also, write down all the health risks involved with from smoking (Smoking-related diseases claim an estimated 430,700 American lives each year, cigarette smoke contains over 4,800 chemicals, 69 of which are known to cause cancer, about 8.6 million people in the U.S. have at least one serious illness caused by smoking.) Source: American Lung Association
3. Create a Plan. Choose an date and write it down on your calendar. It is helpful if the date you choose is a special day, like a birthday or anniversary. Each day before your Quit Date, write in your calendar (__ days till I quit smoking), mentally prepare yourself that you will be quitting on that day. Like many thousands before you, choose a safe and natural method to quit smoking. Hypnosis is the most effective method according to MedScape Medical News. Plan to have water, gum, and healthy foods to offset your smoking triggers. Find a support group, friend, or a quit buddy who you can share your experience with.
4. Work with a Certified Hypnotist on the day of your Quit Date. Show up for your appointment. Throw away all your cigarettes, ashtrays, any other related paraphernalia. Listen to your reinforcement CD at least once day for a few weeks. Hypnosis will help you with your triggers, and give you tools to help you reinforce your decision to quit. 5. Make a list of all your triggers. I smoked when I felt, bored, stressed, with coffee, after a meal, in my car etc.. Make a second list of all the activities you will do instead of smoking. Healthy dis-tractors like reading a book, going for a walk, working in your garden, taking a deep breath, chewing gum, lifting weights, riding a bike, listening to music, drinking water.
6. Use Daily Affirmation and place in on your fridge, mirror, or at your desk. Say them to yourself 10 times each morning, afternoon, and evening. I am Happy, Healthy, and smoke-free, Everyday I choose to breathe fresh air into my lungs. Today I am a proud and healthy non-smoker.
7. Tell a Spouse, Friend, or co-worker that will hold you accountable If you are held accountable by someone else it may help you to quit. Signing a contract, may make it more official. Find a support group locally or online.
8. Daily Exercise If you do not currently have an exercise regiment, start off by walking 10 minutes each day. This will help you release any daily stress.
9. In the beginning, reward your self each day with with a healthy and safe reward. Some inexpensive reward ideas are flowers, a book, and an apple.
10. Donít give up! This is one of the best decisions you have made in your life. 1000ís of people do it everyday, you are no different. Write a list of the reasons you quit, and the benefits you enjoy from being a non-smoker, and keep them with you at all times in your wallet or purse.

How to Stop Smoking with EFT
by Darren Hiller

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is simply the quickest and most effective way to deal with doubts, obstacles, triggers, cravings, concerns, and emotions that most people who are quitting smoking have to deal with. Not only does EFT help make the transition to non-smoker easier, it better equips ex-smokers to deal with any stressful situations that may cause a relapse.

EFT was founded by Gary Craig, a Stanford Engineer, Ordained Minister and Personal Performance Coach. You can download a free how-to manual from his website (www.emofree.com). EFT is simply emotional acupuncture without the needles. Our bodies are made up of subtle energies. When negative emotions are present, it's simply a disruption of the body's energy system. With EFT you stimulate certain meridian points by tapping on them, and it tends to balance the energy flow in our body. EFT is simple to learn, gentle and easy to use, can be used anywhere, only take minutes, and has such great results.

Here are the EFT basic steps to Stop Smoking:

1. Write down all doubts, triggers, emotions, obstacles, and concerns you have about quitting smoking? (I doubt that I can quit smoking or quitting smoking is too stressful)
2. Evaluate the intensity level of each issue or emotion on a 1 to 10 scale (10 being the most). (Doubt - 8, Stress - 7)
3. Set up the affirmation and reminder phrase starting with the most intense issue first.
Affirmation - Even though I doubt I can quit smoking, I deeply and completely accept myself, or Even though I think quitting smoking will be too stressful, I deeply and completely accept myself. Reminder phrase - My doubts about quitting smoking and My stressful feelings about quitting smoking.
4. Begin tapping lightly on the following meridian points on one side of your body using your index finger and middle finger with either hand, as you speak the phrases out loud. (To view a chart of the tapping points go to www.mindbodytapping.com)

  • Kartate Chop - "Even though I doubt I can quit smoking, I deeply and completely accept myself." (Repeat 3 times).
  • Eye Brow (Beginning of your eye brow near the top of your nose) - "My doubts about quitting smoking"
  • Side of the eye - "I doubt I can quit smoking"
  • Below the eye - "My doubts about quitting smoking"
  • Under the nose - "Doubt I can quit smoking"
  • Middle of the chin - "All the other things I have tried did not work"
  • Under the collarbone - "I really just doubt I can quit smoking"
  • Under the armpit - "My doubts about quitting smoking"
  • Top of the head - "Doubt I can quit smoking"

    5. Take a deep breath.
    6. Re-evaluate the intensity level of the issue using the 1 to 10 scale.
    7. Tap a second round (Continue tapping as many rounds as you need to reduce the intensity level of the issue below a 3).
    8. Move onto the next emotion or issue starting with the Evaluation #2.
    9. Once you have removed all of your doubts, fears, concerns, and obstacles, you are ready to quit smoking.
    10. For the first few weeks, use EFT at least three times each day to deal with any emotions, or issues that come up.

  • Quit Smoking Techniques - 7 steps with Creative Visualization

    One of the first techniques that I recommend to my client's who want to quit smoking, is to begin visualizing themselves as a non-smoker. Creative Visualization is a technique where you imagine or think about yourself as you want to be. It's like replaying a mental movie about you successfully achieving your goal.

    Using the power of Creative Visualization will help mentally prepare you to become a non-smoker.

    Creative Visualization steps:

    1. Center yourself
    With your eyes closed, take a moment to center yourself by taking a few deep breaths while becoming aware of your surroundings (What are you sitting or standing on? What color is it? How is your body touching the earth? Can you feel your heartbeat? What sounds can you hear?)

    2. Start visualizing
    Think about where you are at this moment. This is where you will begin your one minute visualization. (How much are you smoking per day? How confident and motivated are you?)

    3. Enjoy a benefit
    Quickly move past your quit date, and create a mental picture of a moment in your first days/weeks as a non-smoker enjoying one of the ways you are going to benefit. (If being healthier is one of your benefits, you can imagine what it's going to be like to breath fresh air into your lungs).

    4. Bring in details
    Enhance your visualization by bringing in more details into your mental movie. (Where are you? what are you doing? what are you wearing? notice your surroundings, who else is there?).

    5. Bring in all your senses
    Bring all your senses into your visualization.(what else do you see in the scene? What sounds do you hear? what emotions are you feeling? what do you smell and taste?).

    6. Positive affirmations
    Give yourself positive affirmations throughout your visualization. (I am a calm, healthy, and happy non-smoker).

    7. Visualize each day
    Repeat your one minute visualizations at least two times each day. Visualize yourself in different situations enjoying one or multiple benefits at the same time, always imagining yourself how you would like to be as a non-smoker. You may visualize yourself as if you were watching yourself on a movie screen or from the perspective of looking out of your own eyes. The ideal time to begin visualizing is as soon as you think you want to quit smoking.
    FDA orders strongest warning label for 2 anti-smoking drugs, including one taken by slain Dallas musician
    11:47 PM CDT on Wednesday, July 1, 2009 From staff and wire reports
    The Food and Drug Administration will require two smoking-cessation drugs, Chantix Ė blamed by friends and family of a Dallas musician for the violent behavior that led to his death in 2007 Ė and Zyban, to carry the agency's strongest safety warning over side effects including depression and suicidal thoughts.
    The new requirement, called a "black box" warning, is based on reports of people experiencing unusual changes in behavior, becoming depressed, or having suicidal thoughts while taking the drugs. The antidepressant Wellbutrin, which has the same active ingredient as GlaxoSmithKline PLC's Zyban, already carries such a warning. The FDA is also requiring an additional study on Chantix and Zyban to determine the extent of the side effects. Pfizer Inc., which makes Chantix, had already updated its labeling after the FDA began investigating potential side effects in 2007. That investigation was sparked by reports of about 37 suicides and more than 400 of suicidal behavior in connection with the drug. The FDA announced that investigation after the death of Carter Albrecht, 34, in Dallas in September 2007. His girlfriend told police that Albrecht suddenly became violent, had hit and chased her into her house and then was attempting to break into the home of her next-door neighbor in the White Rock Lake area when he was shot. Police said the homeowner shot once at the top of the door to scare Albrecht away but instead struck the 6-foot-4 musician in the head, killing him. Albrecht, who played guitar and keyboard for the bands Sorta and Edie Brickell & New Bohemians, had a blood alcohol level of 0.29 when he died, according to an autopsy report. The legal limit for driving is 0.08. After his death, the FDA asked Pfizer to provide reports of any "adverse events similar to the events that occurred with Mr. Albrecht." Albrecht's girlfriend, Ryann Rathbone, said she and Albrecht had been taking Chantix for about a week before he died, and she said they were having vivid sleep experiences that users call "Chantix dreams." In February 2008, the FDA said the connection between Chantix and serious psychiatric problems was increasingly likely, though the company had already updated the label to reflect the potential side effects. Despite the new, stricter warnings, the FDA said consumers and doctors still have to weigh the benefit versus the risks when taking the drug. "The risk of serious adverse events while taking these products must be weighed against the significant health benefits of quitting smoking," said Dr. Janet Woodcock, director of the FDA's Center for Drug Evaluation and Research. "Smoking is the leading cause of preventable disease, disability, and death in the United States, and we know these products are effective aids in helping people quit." Last fall, the FDA also began looking into scores of patient reports about blackouts and injuries while taking Chantix. The Federal Aviation Administration later banned use of Chantix by pilots and air traffic controllers. The drug's label also warns that patients may be too impaired to drive or operate heavy machinery. Chantix was approved in 2006. Sales reached $846 million in 2008, a 4 percent drop from the prior year, as concerns over side effects surfaced. "The labeling update underscores the important role of health care providers in treating smokers attempting to quit and provides specific information about Chantix and instructions that physicians and patients should follow closely," said Dr. Briggs W. Morrison, senior vice president of the primary care development group at Pfizer. Pfizer said it made the revised label warnings in agreement with the FDA and is immediately making the information available to health care providers and patients.

    Thanks to Chantix, Quitting Smoking May Be Hazardous, Too
    Source: Wall Street Journal (sub req'd), May 29, 2008
    The pharmaceutical company Pfizer "is preparing an advertising and public-relations campaign to counter concerns about its antismoking drug Chantix, once trumpeted as a potential billion-dollar- a-year blockbuster. " So far, Pfizer has "run ads in five major newspapers in which its medical director explains Chantix's risk-benefit balance." The drug company will soon "start hosting round-table discussions on Chantix for members of the media." The Pfizer campaign comes after an independent study linked Chantix "to 988 serious side effects in the last quarter of 2007." According to Senator Charles Grassley, who has asked the U.S. Food and Drug Administration about the drug's safety, Chantix has had "more reports of serious adverse events in this country than any other prescription drug." Some of the side effects reported for Chantix aren't currently listed in the drug's warnings. The Institute for Safe Medication Practices, which conducted the Chantix study, receives drug company funding, but not from Pfizer, according to the Center for Science in the Public Interest.

  • Put a straw or a cinnamon stick in your mouth

  • Ben Affleck quits a twenty year smoking habit with a little help from his friend. Best friend Matt Damon, who quit smoking with a Professional Hypnotist over a year ago, told Ben all about it. Ben decided it was time to quit, and took his friends advice to use a Professional Hypnotist. "I finally decided to quit smoking when I was going to have a child. I actually went to hypnosis." Now, Mr. Affleck is a non-smoker thanks to Hypnosis and a little help from his friend.

    DeGeneres Uses Hypnosis to Quit Smoking. Admitting that she didn't "look like somebody who should smoke," DeGeneres told her audience, "I work out and I'm very healthy and I like to think I'm a very intelligent person." She added, "My mother had breast cancer. I, of all people, should not smoke... She said of her Hypnotist, "You've helped me tremendously and probably saved my life, definitely changed my life."

    "As a former smoker, I know how difficult it is to quit smoking. If you are motivated, Hypnosis is a very effective method to help you quit."
    Anne Brackett was 28 and living in Boulder, Colo., when she saw an ad in the paper for a group hypnosis class at a YWCA to help people quit smoking. She was smoking more than a pack a day and thought she'd give it a try. "I didn't think I was being hypnotized," Brackett says. In fact, she thought it was sort of goofy to sit there with her eyes closed listening to the leader say, repeatedly, "You will forget to remember to smoke." But she did just as the leader suggested. "I never wanted to smoke again," Brackett says. Today, 30 tobacco-free years later, Brackett who is 58, lives in Elk Grove and works as a respiratory therapist. "I dismissed so much, and this taught me not to do that," Brackett said. "The problem is that medicine tends to be conservative."
