Statistics show that those suffering with mental health issues are twice as likely to take up smoking and become more addicted so more should be done to prevent this or help those who want to quit.

According to the BBC, the NHS in England is not doing enough to help people with mental health conditions quit smoking, an influential group of doctors has warned. Research shows that those with mental health disorders are twice as likely to smoke and tend to be more addicted.

The study, carried out by The Department of Health said that the NHS was failing to do enough to stop them.

The National Council for Hypnotherapy has responded to the study by highlighting the effectiveness of stop smoking via hypnotherapy. Normally, just a single session with a hypnotherapist can help to strengthen the desire to quit, increase the determination of those who want to stop smoking and can be used on people from all walks of life, including those with mental health issues, if they are willing to try and stop.

A representative from the National Council for Hypnotherapy explained, ‘Smoking has extremely damaging effects on the body which we are all aware of. Statistics show that those suffering with mental health issues are twice as likely to take up smoking and become more addicted so more should be done to prevent this or help those who want to quit. Hypnotherapy can be a complementary treatment to help smokers quit by using a fresh, alternative approach.’
