What You Need To Know Before You Decide to Quit Smoking Cold Turkey

Have you made a decision to stop smoking? Good for you! Quitting smoking is the smartest decision you can make for yourself. Are you going to try to quit smoking cold turkey? Well, that may not be the best way to go about it. Don’t get me wrong; any attempt you make to quit smoking is a good one. I just want to help you become aware of some information about quitting cold turkey.

First of all you need to know what your chances are of being successful when you try to end smoking without any kind of assistance. Let’s just say your chances are not so hot. What studies show about quitting smoking cold turkey can vary but in general you only have about a 20% chance of successfully quitting smoking cold turkey.

People who successfully quit smoking cold turkey often take numerous attempts to finally succeed. Again, study results vary, but on average it takes about five attempts to quit smoking cold turkey before you can expect to be successful and actually stop smoking.

Now, it is true your level of determination can boost your chances of being successful, but determination is not enough. Just about everyone who makes a decision to put an end to their smoking habit feels very determined to start. But as the cravings to smoke start creeping in that determination and “will power” start fading and before they know it they are lighting up a smoke. They are left scratching their heads, feeling frustrated, and wondering “what the heck happened, I was so determined.”

If you are serious about stopping smoking you may want to consider getting some assistance. It will increase your odds of being successful, and you will not require as many attempts to actually succeed, maybe just one attempt if you choose the right smoking cessation method.

So what kind of help is best? You have several options but there is one smoking cessation method that has proven through test results to be extremely successful at helping people break their smoking habit. I am referring to NLP, or Neuro Linguistic Programming. It is a form of hypnotherapy that combines traditional smoking cessation hypnosis with modern technology.

NLP is a form of self-applied hypnotherapy, meaning you do not have to see a therapist or be put in a trance. With NLP you can listen to a specially formatted recording that is designed to put the listener into a very peaceful and relaxed state. Once in this tranquil state the NLP recording works its magic targeting and removing the subconscious cravings to smoke.

NLP takes a different approach from most smoking cessation aids. Instead of trying to relieve the physical addiction to nicotine, NLP goes to the root of your smoking addiction and removes the cravings to smoke from your subconscious. Once the cravings to smoke are removed it is very easy to become smoke-free. NLP is much more successful and easier than trying to quit smoking cold turkey.
