A Couple Successfully Quits Smoking Together
A married couple, ages 49 and 58, decided to quit smoking. They had been smokers for a combined 70 years, both having started in their teens. When friends or family members come together, I give them a group discount, even though I usually see them individually. I want each person to feel free to tell me what is really on their mind without censoring themselves, and I want to tailor the hypnosis to each persons needs and preferred imagery. Sometimes I will bring both clients into a joint session for teaching meditation or self-hypnosis, as I did with this couple. Each one had two private sessions, and then they shared a third session. When people quit at the same time, there is a small risk that if one falters, the other will feel discouraged and may even relapse. However, more often two people will help each other stay strong. Neither wants to let the other down. Besides, if they have been used to smoking together, it will be easier on both of them if they stop at the same time.
Of course, many clients quit successfully even when they are still surrounded by people who smoke. The husband in this case told me that he lost all desire for cigarettes, even when tested at a family reunion where smokers puffed away right in front of him. As this gentleman shared about his experience, I feel more able to decide for myself what I want to do, and then do it. Quitting smoking was so easy once Cara showed me how to convince myself I could do it. It was a comfortable atmosphere and an enjoyable experience that seemed to work magically. His wife said, I loved it. The whole experience helped me to quit smoking while feeling calm and relaxed, not like things I have tried in the past that left me feeling stressed and uptight. It really was easy and a very interesting experience.
