Smoking Cessation helps increase the quality of life. It is now well documented that smoking causes lung cancer, heart diseases, stroke, lung diseases and cancers of the mouth, pancreas, kidney, cervix and bladder.
Smoking usually starts when one wants to fill up the void in certain area of their life. At times, smoking started due to peer or social pressure.
Overtime, it become a habit that is hard to shave off due to the independency to the tabacco.
Health Issues for Smokers and Second Hand Smoke
Men who smoke are more likely than non-smokers to develop lung cancer. Other side effect of smoking also causes spontaneous abortion and sudden infant birth syndrome in expecting mothers and higher infertility in men. Children exposed to second hand smoke (environment tabacco smoke) is also known for developing asthma, pneumonia, bronchiolitis.
Benefits of Smoking Cessation
Smoking Cessation is highly encouraged to help increase the quality of life. Within few days of quitting, the sensation of taste and smell are enhanced.

Hypnotherapy for Smoking Cessation
Smoking Cessation is one of the common reason clients seek hypnotherapy. There are two types of identification for smokers who want to seek smoking cessation with hypnotherapy. They are:
