Smoking is just a series of habitual behaviors once these behaviors have been changed smoking is much easier to quit

According to The Guardian, the number of children taking up smoking has risen by 50,000. In 2011 the figure stood at 157,000 and for 2012 it was 207,000. This means there has been a sharp spike in the amount of children aged between 11 and 15 who have started to smoke in the UK.

Findings also show that the figure is the equivalent to 567 children taking up the habit each day.

This is alarming news for anti smoking campaigners, the National Health Service and the Government after years of trying to persuade young people to not start smoking. Whilst traditional approaches can help smokers quit, complementary approaches such as hypnotherapy can also help smokers beat the habit.

The National Council for Hypnotherapy offers members of the public an in-depth directory of local hypnotherapists throughout the UK who have experience and skills to help clients stop smoking. A spokesperson from the Council explained, ‘Hypnotherapy works by helping people to change their behaviour. Smoking is just a series of habitual behaviours once these behaviours have been changed smoking is much easier to quit. ’

As a result of member’s efforts, the National Council for Hypnotherapy has helped smokers quit, some in as little as one session.

The National Council for Hypnotherapy continues to follow smoking related news and highlight the benefits of hypnotherapy.
