There are many reasons why our clients at the Harley Street Stop Smoking Clinic decide to make the change to a smoke-free life. Here are FIVE GREAT REASONS to kick the habit…
1. To Save Money
Smoking is expensive – according to the NHS the average 10 cigarettes a day smoker spends over £1000 a year on their habit.
With the money you save from quitting smoking you could book an exciting adventure for you and the children, or treat yourself and your partner to a relaxing spa break. Spending less on cigarettes could mean a positive change in your finances, allowing you to spend more on what really matters to you.
2. To Feel More Attractive
Smoking causes various undesirable changes to your appearance, from yellowed teeth to premature ageing. Quitting cigarettes often means a brighter smile, fewer wrinkles, and clothes and hair that no longer smell of smoke. Once you quit smoking you will begin to feel more attractive and self-confident as you begin to change for the better.
3. For Your Family
Not only can second-hand smoke harm those around you, but your smoking habit probably worries your friends and family too. Those closest to you care about your health and wellbeing, and by quitting smoking you will be making your nearest and dearest very proud as you become a healthy non-smoker. Imagine the sense of achievement you will feel when you next see your family and friends and can tell them that you have finally stopped smoking for good.
4. For Your Health
Do you wish you could walk the dog without losing your breath? Or does your family have a history of illnesses made worse by smoking?
Smokers are at a 70% higher risk of heart attacks than non-smokers. The good news is that after quitting it takes only 24 hours for this risk to begin to drop, and after a year of non-smoking your risk will have decreased by 50%. After two weeks you will be able to exercise without feeling winded, as your circulation and lung function improve.
A month after you quit your lungs will be able to begin to start repairing the damage caused by cigarettes; with correctly functioning lungs you can rest easy in the knowledge that you are at a lower risk of infection and illness. As well as all of these benefits you can feel positive and happy as a non-smoker knowing that you are no longer exposing yourself to harmful smoke and chemicals that cause cancer, emphysema, stroke and problems with fertility.
You will be healthier, more active and have more energy to spend time with your family and friends.
5. Because YOU CAN
We understand that quitting smoking can appear daunting; something that other people do but perhaps you seem only able to dream of. This isn’t the case! Many people delay quitting, but the realisation that you can succeed is a major reason to make up your mind and seek support in your journey.
With our advanced hypnotherapy for smoking cessation techniques we have helped many hundreds of people to quit smoking, even when they thought it was impossible. After just one session our clients leave feeling motivated, happy and positive in their new life as a healthy non-smoker.
With a success rate of 93-94%, many of our clients report leaving our clinic feeling no desire to smoke, commenting in amazement that they do not even think about cigarettes anymore. This could be you too. Whether you have smoked every day for the past thirty years, or only smoke socially, hypnotherapy can help you to kick the habit once and for all.
