Hypnosis for smoking cessation: What is the success rate?

Especially the hypnosis for smoking cessation is well researched. There are numerous studies on this standard application of hypnosis and its success rate.

Smoking cessation through hypnosis has been well studied

The studies that I list below can give you an overview of why hypnosis has the highest success rate of all non-smoking programs.

90.6% success rate for smoking cessation through hypnosis

Of 43 consecutive patients who underwent this protocol, 39 reported that they were abstinent from tobacco use at follow-up (6 months to 3 years after treatment). This corresponds to a success rate of 90.6% in hypnosis. University of Washington School of Medicine, Depts. of Anesthesiology and Rehabilitation Medicine, Int J Clin Exp Hypn. 2001 Jul; 49 (3): 257-66. Barber J.

After 12 months: 48.1% success with hypnosis, 22.6% in control group

149 participants were divided into 3 groups. 66 participants received a group hypnosis, 46 participants received single hypnosis, 43 participants were treated without hypnosis in a control group. All participants (including the control group) also received nicotine patches and behavior therapy elements.

At 3 months, 66.3% of the hypnosis group were abstinent (single hypnosis slightly better than group hypnosis) and 27.3% from the control group. After 12 months, 48.1% were still abstinent from the hypnosis group (group hypnosis slightly better than single hypnosis) and only 22.6% from the control group.

Hypnosis most effective says the biggest study of all time: 3 times as effective as a nicotine patch and 15 times as effective as willpower.

Hypnosis is the most effective way to stop smoking, according to the largest scientific comparison of ways to break the habit. A meta-analysis that statistically combines the results of more than 600 studies with 72,000 people from America and Europe to compare different listening methods. On average, hypnosis was more than three times as effective as nicotine replacement and 15 times as effective as trying to quit alone. University of Iowa, Journal of Applied Psychology, One in Five Give Up Smoking. October 1992. (Also New Scientist, October 10, 1992). Studies on the effectiveness of hypnosis for smoking cessation.

For hypnosis patients, it is twice as likely that you will remain smoke free after 2 years

A study of 71 smokers found that hypnotic patients stopped smoking twice as often after two years of follow-up than patients who stopped alone. Guided health pictures for smoking cessation and long-term abstinence. Wynd, CA. Journal of Nursing Scholarship, 2005; 37: 3, pages 245-250.

81% said that they no longer smoke after hypnosis

Thirty smokers participating in an HMO were referred for treatment by their family doctor. Twenty-one patients returned after a first consultation and received hypnosis for smoking cessation. At the end of the treatment, 81% of patients said they stopped smoking and 48% said they were abstinent 12 months after the treatment.

Hypnosis more effective than drug interventions for smoking cessation

Group hypnosis sessions rated at a less effective rate of success (22% success) than individualized hypnosis sessions. However, it has been shown that group hypnosis sessions are more effective than drug interventions. Ohio State University, College of Nursing, Columbus, Ohio, USA 43210, USA Descriptive Results of the American Lung Association of Ohio’s Hypnotherapy Program on Smoking Cessation. Ahijevych K, Yerardi R, Nedilsky N.

87% reported abstinence from tobacco use after hypnosis

In a field study with 93 male and 93 female CMHC patients, the facilitation of smoking cessation by hypnosis was investigated. At 3 months follow-up, 86% of men and 87% of women said they continued to abstain from using tobacco with hypnosis. Performance after sex in a smoker program that combines hypnosis and dislike.

What do these studies tell us about smoking cessation through hypnosis?

 

  • Hypnosis is the effective method of smoking cessation
  • Hypnosis is 15 times as effective as sheer willpower
  • Long-term success requires a comprehensive program

My smoking cessation approach aims for long-term and lasting success. A single session is successful after almost 12 months in almost 50% of the participants.

It therefore makes sense to run a program of 2-3 sessions to bring the success rate in the range of 80-90%.

If you want to become a non-smoker, I can assist you with hypnosis that:

  • Your subconscious mind no longer sabotages you
  • Your withdrawal symptoms are greatly reduced
  • The subconscious triggers for your smoking will be resolved
  • Learning techniques to help you become a nonsmoker

 

Whether you really have the will to stay non-smoker and whether your social environment allows you to stay non-smoker decides on success. If your friends sabotage your attempt to become a non-smokers, your chances of success are lower.

But if you really want to be a non-smoker, we have good chances with my FINALLY SMOKE-FREE program.
