    Top tips to help smokers stub out the habit

    by Anne-Marie Bradley

    A HUDDERSFIELD hypnotherapist has put together some top tips to help smokers kick the habit in the wake of No Smoking Day. Debbie Taylor-Payne – who runs Hypnotherapy Rooms at Marsh and Marsden – has seen an increase in smokers wanting to quit since smokefree laws were introduced last year.

    She gave the following advice to help people remain strong and smoke-free:




    Use your imagination and see yourself as a contented non-smoker who is fit and healthy. Remember your personal reasons for quitting. Your imagination is much more powerful than your will power.

    Use affirmations to make you feel more positive such as, "I am now a permanent non-smoker", "I no longer need that crutch and this time I am going to make it happen", "I want this to happen", "I deserve this to happen".


    Use quick and easy relaxation techniques. Begin by taking a long, deep breath, pulling the air into your tummy and hold for a few moments. Then exhale slowly and deeply, thinking "calm and relaxed". As you breathe out, just let your jaw relax and your shoulders droop, and then press your tummy tight towards your backbone. As you practice doing this any tension will flow out of your body. Practice this every day for a few moments to help you release any tension that you may have.

    After a meal do not light-up. Get up from the table and go and have a drink of water. Break old patterns and associations by sitting in a different place from your usual one. Find something to do instead, read a book or go for a walk.

    Keep your hands busy. Keep a pen or pencil handy to fiddle with, or find something to do with your hands. This need to do something with your hands will gradually go within a few days, if it happens at all.

    Satisfy your oral need. Drink lots of water or low calorie drinks to suit you. If you feel peckish in-between meals, then crunch on a carrot or some celery, or eat a banana or some other fruit or chew sugar free gum.
