Frequently Asked Questions

How does The Breathe Quit-Smoking Technique work? 

A significant factor in the effectiveness of this system is Advanced Hypnosis and when this is combined with NLP and CBT, it creates a very powerful therapeutic approach to smoking cessation. 

Another aspect of the BQT system involves addressing your individual needs and working with your desires for your future as a non-smoker. The technique also dispels smoking myths, breaks unwanted triggers and habits and positively reframes your thoughts and beliefs about smoking.

The outdated misconceptions about hypnosis have been replaced by proven, scientifically supported applications. Today, hypnosis is used in various fields such as medicine, dentistry, law enforcement, professional sports, and education.


How does hypnosis work for quitting smoking? 

Our minds operate on two levels: the conscious mind and the subconscious or unconscious mind. The conscious mind is responsible for decision-making, thinking and acting. On the other hand, the subconscious mind controls our habits and many of our behaviours, including your smoking habit. Through the relaxed state of hypnosis, we can directly communicate with the subconscious mind and offer suggestions for change. This can facilitate swift and effortless transformation of lifelong habits, including smoking.


Is Hypnotherapy safe? I’m afraid of losing control. 

Hypnotherapy is entirely safe. You will remain aware and in control throughout the entire session, with the ability to end it at any time. It is not possible to become stuck in hypnosis, nor can you be coerced into doing anything against your will. Hypnotherapy is a collaborative process where you are a willing participant and are helped to tap into your own inner resources to make positive changes.

Hypnosis is a safe, relaxing, and enjoyable experience and your hypnotherapist will guide and support you throughout the session.


Will this BQT system work for me? 

So long as you do not have any severe mental health conditions, you can achieve success using this system no matter how long you’ve been smoking, how much you smoke or how many times you’ve tried to quit previously. Moreover, since the session is tailored specifically to your needs, it can be highly effective!


How will I know if the system has worked? 

You will know it has worked because you will have quit smoking and feel wonderful as a non-smoker. You will think, feel and behave as a non-smoker. Many individuals do not experience withdrawal symptoms after the session and for those that do, it’s really handleable and doesn’t last long. In fact, some even say they feel as though they have never smoked or it feels like it was a long time ago.


How does this system help me quit smoking? 

The reasons for smoking cigarettes differ from person to person, meaning the areas in which you require assistance differ from those of other smokers. By tailoring the session to your specific needs, we can enable you to become a non-smoker quickly and easily compared with other methods.


What if I’ve tried other methods to quit smoking and they haven’t worked?
Hypnotherapy can be particularly effective for smokers who have tried other methods without success. It focuses on addressing the underlying psychological factors that sustain your smoking habit, not just the nicotine addiction that is solely addressed with nicotine replacement therapies. (Nicotine is cleared from your body 48 hours after you quit). By working on changing these patterns at the subconscious level, it can provide you with a fresh and powerful approach to quitting.

The BQT combination of Advanced Hypnosis, NLP, and CBT offers an even more powerful approach than hypnotherapy alone. These therapies work on multiple levels, addressing the psychological, behavioural, and emotional components of smoking addiction, making it much more likely for you to succeed.

What about nicotine? 

When you quit smoking, nicotine is quickly gone from your body -  around 48 hours afterwards.

Though nicotine is addictive and can give you a small dopamine ‘hit’, usually with the first smoke of the day, most smokers don’t notice this effect with most cigarettes they smoke. Smokers are not woken up every hour or half hour through the night with their bodies going cold turkey for nicotine. Smokers go on long flights, stay in hospital or don’t smoke for many hours on a work shift, all usually without even thinking about it much, because they know they can’t smoke! So, if nicotine was that highly physically addictive why aren’t their bodies going into a debilitated state and suffering powerful physical withdrawal symptoms when they can’t smoke? 

The answer is that nicotine is not the root of your difficulty in stopping smoking!

The real addiction is your powerful psychological habit, constantly being reinforced multiple times a day through repetitive actions and associations with things you do, like always having a smoke with a drink, or on a break or in the car. 

Think how many times you lift that cigarette to your lips every day.  A 15 per day smoker may take, ten or fifteen drags per cigarette, or more. So, a smoker is usually doing that repetitive action 150, maybe 200 or 300 times per day.  What other actions do you do hundreds of times per day without thinking about it? Maybe blink, breathe or the number of steps you take.  These are all stored in your unconscious mind. 

This is what the Breathe Quit-Smoking Technique targets and fixes, that nicotine replacement therapies do not.


How many sessions do I need to stop smoking?

With the Breathe Quit-Smoking Technique, you only need one session and you’re done! No need to find the time to have to come back for more sessions. 

Of course, we also include as part of your BQT package, our 30-day unlimited support guarantee, in the unlikely event that you’d need it to help you remain a non-smoker. Very few people do need further help because this technique is so successful. We would be unable to run a business if many of our new non-smokers relapsed or struggled so much that they needed additional help not to relapse. We know this because we always follow up with clients after 3 days, 1 week, 1 month, 3 months and 6 months to check in with how they are doing.
