Attempting to quit smoking does not only require a desire to quit but also to maintain a different way of life and change habitual behaviour – hypnotherapy can help the client achieve this.

According to researchers at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and the Johns Hopkins Children’s Centre, tobacco smoke could negatively impact the kidney function in adolescents, a new study has found. Findings showed that teenagers exposed to smoke via second hand methods or those who had decided to smoke had lower glomerular filtration rates – a common measure of how well the kidneys are working. Such results suggest that tobacco smoke has a damaging effect on the kidneys and should be avoided by teenagers at all costs.

This is the latest of results that demonstrate just how damaging smoking can be. Whilst some young people are using the National Health Service to quit smoking, others need a new approach. Hypnotherapy has helped hundreds of thousands stop smoking by changing the way they feel about cigarettes and working to strengthen their willpower, desire to quit and determination.

The National Council for Hypnotherapy is a directory of hypnotherapists based in the UK specialising in a range of ailments and issues including relief from phobias, habits, weight loss and behavioural issues. The therapy can give smokers a novel and unique way to quit, as a representative added, "Attempting to quit smoking does not only require a desire to quit but also to maintain a different way of life and change habitual behaviour – hypnotherapy can help the client achieve this."
