Quit Smoking Service in Malaysia - Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy is more effective than nicotine replacement therapy for smoking cessation.

The efficacy of pharmacotherapy for smoking cessation is well documented. However, due to relapse rates and side effects, hypnotherapy is gaining attention as an alternative treatment option. The aim of this one-center randomized study was to compare the efficacy of hypnotherapy alone, as well as hypnotherapy with nicotine replacement therapy (NRT), to conventional NRT in patients hospitalized with a cardiac or pulmonary illness.

Hypnotherapy patients were more likely than NRT patients to be nonsmokers at 12 weeks (43.9% vs. 28.2%; p = 0.14) and 26 weeks after hospitalization (36.6% vs. 18.0%; p = 0.06). Smoking abstinence rates in the HNRT group were similar to the H group. There was no difference in smoking abstinence rates at 26 weeks between “self quit” and participants in any of the treatment groups. In multivariable regression analysis adjusting for diagnosis and demographic characteristics, H and HNRT were over three times more likely than NRT participants to abstain at 26-weeks post-discharge (RR = 3.6; p = 0.03 and RR = 3.2; p = 0.04, respectively).

Results of this randomized controlled trial reveal that Hypnotherapy is more effective than NRT in improving smoking abstinence in patients hospitalized for a smoking-related illness, and could be an asset to post-discharge smoking cessation programs.

Natural Way To Quit Smoking Proven To Work in Malaysia - Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy, a form of psychotherapy, is a powerful way to let go of bad habits, get to the core of triggers that can be affiliated to your emotions and explore your consciousness. Through guided meditation, visualization, relaxing music and deep breathing this form of therapy will put you in a state of trance says Mayo Clinic. Your hypnotherapist will talk to you through this process that will transmit to your subconscious to increase your motivation for quitting and change your previous smoking habits.
Imagery or visualization is commonly used in hypnotherapy for smokers who want to kick the habit. Your therapist may ask you to picture how easier it will be to breathe without smoking.
In a study, conducted at the San Francisco VA Medical Center and the University of California-San Francisco, researchers found that hypnotherapy was just as effective as conventional methods of smoking cessation. A sample size of 286 participants were randomly divided and received either hypnosis or standard behavioral counseling to quit smoking for two 60-minute sessions along with three 20-minute follow-up calls to discuss the sessions. The results showed that hypnosis was helpful for smokers who had a history of depression or struggled with other psychiatric conditions.
The relaxed state and a therapist's discussion of the series of skills for coping with nicotine withdrawal symptoms is one of the many alternative therapies that has gained national recognition and acceptance. "This study provides much-needed evidence that hypnosis is indeed a very helpful treatment," said senior researcher in mental health at SFVAMC, clinical professor of psychiatry at UCSF and lead author of the study Timothy Carmody.

Stop Smoking in One Session

Without a doubt, your own will and determination to stop smoking are the best quit aids available to you. They are also mandatory requirements for successful, long term smoking cessation. With solid commitment in place, any quit aid of your choice will help. Without it, nothing will. So, with that said, let's take a look at hypnosis as a tool to help you stop smoking.

What is Hypnosis and How Does it Work?

Hypnosis activates an altered state of consciousness in which a person is fully awake while being deeply relaxed and more susceptible to suggestion. Exactly how hypnosis works isn’t known, but one thing is certain: people in a hypnotic trance can't be convinced to do things they wouldn’t normally do. They are in full control of their free will.

You might be surprised to learn that you probably experience a self-induced hypnotic trance at least once a day. Have you ever been driving your car only to suddenly realize you can't remember some of the trip? Do you sometimes "lose yourself" while reading a good book or watching a movie? Three-dimensional life fades away, and you're immersed in a different reality, often vividly complete with emotions and physical sensations. That sense of disconnection from your present surroundings while awake and alert signals a hypnotic trance. Rather than being sleep-like, while under hypnosis, people are actually in a state of increased attentiveness, and suggestions offered can take root more easily.

Hypnosis as a Quit Smoking Aid

As a smoking cessation aid, hypnosis has one very important benefit that other quit smoking tools aren't able to offer. Because it uses the power of positive suggestion to help you stop smoking, it actually has the ability to help you develop and strengthen your will and determination to succeed. In my mind, that's a significant benefit!

Most smokers start their quit programs on shaky legs. Nicotine addiction makes us think we are weak and unable to live without our cigarettes. Given time and a healthy attitude though, we can tip the scales in our favor. With every smoke free day completed, you are proving to yourself that quitting is possible. Add some hypnosis to your smoking cessation plan, and it will help you develop the attitude you need to succeed. Further, if you use hypnosis in conjunction with another quit aid, such as the nicotine patch or bupropion (Zyban), your chance of long term success is even higher.

Hypnotherapy For Smoking Cessation Sees Strong Results

Hospitalized patients who smoke may be more likely to quit smoking through the use of hypnotherapy than patients using other smoking cessation methods. Smoking patients who participated in one hypnotherapy session were more likely to be nonsmokers at 6 months compared with patients using nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) alone or patients who quit "cold turkey." retrieved from

Efficacy of hypnosis in smoking cessation - A review

A larger meta-analysis of research into hypnosis to aid smoking cessation (Chockalingam and Schmidt 1992) (48 studies, 6,020 subjects) found that the average quit rate for those using hypnosis was 36%, making hypnosis the most effective method found in this review with the exception of a programme which encouraged pulmonary and cardiac patients to quit smoking (42%) using advice  from their doctor (such subjects are obviously atypical as they have life-threatening illnesses which are aggravated by smoking and therefore these people have very strong incentives to quit).
