I’ve had several clients who have quit smoking but are still struggling with the cravings. Even years after quitting, the cravings and old habits of smoking are an exhausting, daily battle to overcome.
The reason why people still struggle with cravings is because the underlying issues behind the smoking haven’t been addressed. This is the same with overeating and many other addictive behaviors. It is also the reason why some smokers gain weight after quitting. They haven’t dealt with the core issue of why they smoke which is often a safety behavior to flight, or avoid a situation. When this isn’t resolved, the body will find another distraction like overeating or even manifesting an illness to get out of and avoid what is perceived to be, a negative situation.
CBT is a great method to help heal the core issues around stress and anxiety, however when combined with hypnotherapy, results are a lot quicker, (and more enjoyable in my opinion!)
If you are still struggling with cravings, it’s best to see a professional because they deal with this sort of issue on a daily basis, and can give you all the tools you need to quickly resolve the issue. You’ve done the hard work of quitting, so now cross the finish line and heal those core issues to really feel the achievement of quitting cigarettes for good!
