Well, we're now on 4th October and day four of Stoptober . . . any smokers out there still on track?
Do you really want to stop, is the question I always ask, because if you don't . . . then you won't!
Often, a bit like with reverse psychology, if you're told to stop something . . . or are told you shouldn't do something . . . or told this is 'when' you have to do something . . . then very often we revert back to the child within and say NO . . . I don't want to do it . . . or I'll do it in my own time.
It's like telling a child "Whatever you do don't touch the pen!" . . . curiosity is an amazing quality of the mind, because once something has been pointed out to you, you can't help but be drawn towards it more and more . . . that temptation has been put there . . . like dangling a carrot in front of a donkey . . . it's hard to avoid the very thing you want it to avoid.
So whatever you do don't stop smoking in October . . . you'll never do it because you've been told to do it . . . not because you want to do it . . . because you don't want to stop now do you . . .
So when you are really sure that you don't know you can do it . . . easily with hypnosis . . . then you can relax during October and just change those habits of a lifetime for good. You could have a craving free month . . .
