Hypnosis for Stopping the Smoking Habit

Is smoking really an addiction or a habit? According to a recent study done by Dr. Reuven Dar, of Tel Aviv University in Israel, researchers have found that smokers find it hard to give up cigarettes not because they are addicted to nicotine as many will have us believe today but simply because it is a habit.

Most smokers continue smoking mainly for 3 basic short-term affects like:

Oral gratification -the need to have something to suck on...kind of like a pacifier or chewing on a pencil.

Sensory pleasure-you enjoy the smell, taste, and feel of a cigarette in your mouth.

Social companionship-most of your friends are also smokers plus you get to smoke outside with the cool dudes.

Past life regression therapy raises the important question of whether our spiritual evolution on earth is attained through successive incarnations. Many oriental cultures accept pre-existence and reincarnation in one form or another. Recently these beliefs are becoming increasingly popular also in the west. An alternative view that does not embrace the idea of reincarnation is that, in past life recall, a person's unconscious may be dipping into a universal memory bank, which Jung referred to as collective unconscious , and psychically may be drawing upon a story from the past which mirrors the person's own problems. A third possibility is that the unconscious mind may be making up a story, just like in a dream. Some people doubt the reality of their experience, suspecting that their story may be a product of their imagination. Others find themselves deeply immersed in the story, and the experience they report is felt to be authentic and real.

Most people are suffering from one or the other type of depression, one acute, the other chronic. The condition is so controlling and so painful, and the depressed person so needful, that skilled help is essential. Most counsellors who use "talking out things" as their therapy are used to dealing with depression and anxiety. However, for many people, talk therapy can seem to take forever; and, often, even when the reasons for the depression are known, the depression symptoms remain." What is depression? How does it affect people? Depression is not "the blues." Feeling blue is a temporary condition. Depression seems like it will never end and if not treated can get worse. It can last for weeks or months--even many years. Long-term depression is insidious because it can give rise to other conditions and symptoms, some of which can be very serious even life thrusting.
