What is the process of stopping?
My approach to smoking cessation is not ‘bish, bash, bosh, you are now a nonsmoker’.
The key to becoming a nonsmoker is the realisation that you really don’t need it and you really don’t want it (ever), irrespective of the circumstances. You might think that’s kind of obvious, but many people struggle to quit because they believe smoking does something for them and they feel that without it they are being deprived. When life throws a wobbly they inevitably turn to the cigarette for perceived comfort or solace. But when you know that it only makes things worse, when you have better alternatives available to you you won’t be lured back into the smoking.
Sessions are 1 to 3 hours in length and tailored by your specific motivations
