Hypnotherapy to Quit Vaping
Quitting vaping is not an easy task. Vaping addiction is the same as tobacco addiction, meaning it is just as difficult to quit. Don’t let it control you. Learn about how hypnotherapy can help you.
We’re here for you.
How vaping and addiction impacts your life.
Vaping is a trending alternative to smoking that claims to be less harmful to the body. It is a new technology that provides a way to alleviate smoking addiction with less harmful effects. It does this job well, but it is not without its downsides.
Why vaping is bad for you.
Being a new technology means that, unlike tobacco products, it does not have decades of extensive research and medical testing behind it. The lack of research leaves the potential for unknown health risks. As time goes on, we find out more about how vaping could be bad for you. The CDC even created the term EVALI which stands for “e-cigarette, or vaping, product use-associated lung injury.” A few medical occurrences associated with EVALI health risks include:
Lung disease and death related to the consumption of THC cartridges containing Vitamin E acetate
Traces of toxic metal compounds from the vape coils are aerosolized into the vapor
Chemicals used in flavoring linked to various chronic lung diseases, including asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease(COPD), and lung inflammation
These pale in comparison to the nearly 500,000 smoking-related deaths per year in the US. But these risks serve as proof that we still have much to learn about the potential health risks revolving around vaping. Even though vaping can be safer than smoking, it is far from being completely safe.
Living with a vaping addiction.
Though vaping has different physical effects on your body as smoking, the psychological consequences are the same. It is merely another form of nicotine delivery. Whether or not you vape, you still have the same addiction as a smoker. You will build the same dependence and difficulty quitting as a smoker. The withdrawals are no different. Yet, it’s so easy to dismiss the evidence against your vaping addiction, as it’s known to be less harmful than smoking. When looking to stop vaping, you might tell yourself, “Vaping is not good for me, but at least I’m not smoking” or “One last hit won’t do any harm,” or “If I just vape a little less, it will be easier to quit.” These are sure signs of addiction and are no different from what you may tell yourself when you try to quit smoking.
What methods exist to quit vaping?
Since vaping causes nicotine addiction, all of the methods to quit are the same as smoking. They all require the ability to resist every temptation and commit. You can use nicotine gum, patches, counseling, but there is no way to stop as quickly as you went from smoking to vaping. Every person has different requirements for tackling their addiction. There are countless multi-step guides and programs to help quit. But it isn’t always easy, even with vaping.
You won’t stop vaping if you don’t want to.
A common cause of relapse is a lack of commitment. If you are not convinced that you NEED to quit, you will have trouble pushing through the process of stopping your addiction. Being strict with yourself is hard if you aren’t doing it for a good reason. For this reason, many people think that quitting is impossible. And that may as well be true if you aren’t willing to push yourself and leave your comfort zone.
How does Hypnotherapy work?
Hypnotherapy is a form of therapy utilizing the entranced state of a patient. You become relaxed, focused, and very sensitive to your environment. It is entirely safe, and a small noise could wake you up. In this state, a hypnotherapist can give your brain subliminal messages by talking to you. Therapy utilizing hypnosis can help various problems, from traumas to depression, anxiety, and loss. It is particularly useful with vaping and smoking.
Hypnotherapy can help you quit vaping.
Hypnotherapy takes a new approach to combating nicotine addiction. By putting you into an entranced state, a hypnotherapist can give you subliminal messages that can change your impulses. Techniques used by hypnotherapists attack the problems at their roots. They reinforce the thought that smoking is a bad thing. They assign negativity to smoking-related objects and triggers. They work against the urges and cravings that you get during withdrawal. Hypnotherapy is an excellent tool for your internal fight with addiction.
Because of its success, using Hypnotherapy to quit vaping has been gaining popularity. Hypnotherapy has been surprisingly effective at helping both young people and ex-smokers stop vaping. After each session, the cravings get progressively easier to resist until you don’t feel the need to smoke, vape, or Juul at all. Many people see results after just a few sessions. Hypnotherapy is one of the few ways to quit vaping that eases the internal battle of quitting. No replacements, no easing off.
