Closing the gap between wanting to quit and actually doing so can be extremely difficult for some people. Here at Revibe in Winterpark, we use hypnotherapy to access the subconscious part of your brain in order to have a more powerful effect on your behavior, so that when you quit, you quit for good. Dr. Jose De La Cruz specializes in behavioral patterns using hypnotherapy and psychotherapy in order to overcome issues such as smoking addiction, anxiety, depression, phobias, and much more. His approach focuses on why something is happening, not just what is happening, which has proven to be successful for hundreds of patients. Hypnotherapy is commonly used for smoking cessation, as it has been proven to be highly successful. Read some of our testimonials to find out how hypnotherapy has helped others. 

Maybe your family has been pestering you to quit for months now, but you just can’t seem to be able to. You can picture how much healthier and happier you’d be if you finally did, but that pack just keeps calling you back. Maybe the idea of quitting smoking has crossed your mind, but you’re still not completely convinced that it’s something you want to do. Read on for 5 reasons to quit smoking, today! 

     1. Your Health

You’ve heard it before, but smoking can have some serious negative effects on your health. From heart disease to lung cancer to stomach ulcers, smoking affects each part of your body in some way. This study from the CDC states that smoking cigarettes causes harm to almost every organ in the body. It’s important to understand that although smoking does cause many serious illnesses, those are not the only issues associated with it. Smoking can affect your everyday health, even if you haven’t developed something as serious as lung cancer or emphysema. For instance, smoking can cause a raspy cough and severe headaches on a daily basis, even before a serious illness has developed. For the sake of both your short-term and long-term health, quit smoking now!

     2. Your Family and Friends

While you are primarily affected by the issues that arise due to smoking, others around you can potentially be affected by them to some extent as well. Secondhand smoke can cause serious problems for those consistently exposed to cigarette smoke, including stroke, lung cancer, and heart disease. Children exposed to secondhand smoke are at an increased risk for Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, asthma, respiratory issues, and other serious problems. Read more on the effects of secondhand smoke in this American Cancer Society article. If your own health isn’t enough of a reason to quit, let the health of your family and friends decide for you. Contact Revibe Therapy to set up a hypnotherapy session for smoking cessation today. 

    3. The Cost of Medical Care (and Cigarettes)

Numerous studies have definitively shown that smoking does cause some serious diseases. Along with the serious hit to your health that comes with these diseases, there’s a major hit to your bank account as well. The cost to treat diseases such as lung cancer begins at several thousands of dollars…a month. Even if you’re looking at less severe diseases, such as gum disease or bronchitis, you’re still going to have to make a trip to the doctor or dentist, and those will definitely rack up over time. On top of the medical bills, the cost of cigarettes can also add up over time. Save yourself and your wallet—call Revibe Therapy to schedule a smoking cessation session today!
