The first thing smokers should do when deciding to quit

Everest-Institute---Dearborn-Campus-Dearborn-MI-SchoolSmallLogo.gif


Sally Borrello, a specialist in smoking cessation, is an RN, MSN, and certified Tobacco Treatment Specialist joins the show.. She is also an instructor at Everest Institute in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

250sq_edrugstore.jpg


Sally Borrello discusses & answers the following:

  • What’s the best way to quit smoking?
  • What’s the first thing smokers should do when deciding to quit?
  • When smokers are trying to quit & feel to urge to smoke, what kind of activities can they do to stop the cravings?
  • What do you tell smokers who have tried to quit several times before without success?
  • Will the new graphic labels on cigarette packs help?


CONCLUSION: It’s very difficult to quit smoking. The withdrawal symptoms, both physiological and psychological, such as headaches and irritability, are common and can negatively impact both quitters and their families. However, the most important part of quitting is perseverance.  It’s critical to set a quit day as soon as possible and never quit quitting. Relapses can happen, just pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and get back to quitting.

250sq_edrugstore.jpg


Abbreviated Transcript of Interview with Melanie Barnum


Eric Michaels: Most people equate hypnosis with the comedic stage hypnotists.  So what is hypnosis, really?
Melanie Barnum: Hypnosis is a state of heightened suggestibility. It is a sometimes deeply relaxed state in which the hypnotist is able to introduce suggestions to the sub conscious part of the clients mind.  Thus, the hypnotist has the ability to "re-program" the mind to create more favorable habits, allowing for positive changes desired by the client. Hypnosis is also a state we enter into daily.  Take for example watching a suspenseful movie.  We've all been "sucked into" movie plots.  When we see the bad guy sneaking up behind the main character, many people talk to the screen! "Watch out!  He's behind you!" They can't hear us, but we feel like we are part of it.  Believe it or not, that, too, is hypnosis!  Or, when we are driving on the thruway and miss our normal exit we take everyday because we are "in a trance".  That is also a hypnotic state. Contrary to what some people believe, hypnosis is not scary!  While in a hypnosis state or during hypnotic suggestions you will never lose control.  A hypnotist can never make you do anything you don't want to do or wouldn't normally do. In all the years I have been a hypnotist I have never had anyone or even heard of anyone going so deeply into hypnosis that they weren't able to come out, and come out better off than when they began hypnosis! Hypnosis, although traditionally a non-traditional form of therapeutic help, is becoming more acceptable and more of a go-to method for people looking for assistance with all types of issues or concerns. Hypnosis essentially is a heightened state of awareness during which suggestions for positive change are given to the subconscious part of the mind.  It is a much easier, painless and drug free way to make changes or reach goals than many other traditional plans that are on the market today.  Knowing this, it seems to be an easy choice to make hypnosis a major part of any plan for everything from weight loss and smoking cessation to past life regression to increasing self confidence.


Eric Michaels: Okay, so now we know what hypnosis is, but does hypnosis really work for weight loss or smoking cessation and if so, how do you do it?
Melanie Barnum: Yes, it does!  Hypnosis works because it addresses the subconscious desires; those learned behaviors and cravings we all have.  Often, trying to use sheer will power alone will backfire.  Willpower causes the body, mind and spirit stress which makes it incredibly difficult to lose weight and keep it off without help.  Using willpower can help you lose that 5 pounds you need to lose to fit into a dress for the wedding next week, but it's not going to keep it off.  In fact, more often than not you will gain the 5 pounds back and more! I am a Certified Hypnotist with the National Guild of Hypnotists.  I regularly use hypnosis to help clients lose weight and stop smoking. The two, weight and smoking, are similar in that they both can be helped with hypnosis and that they can often be addressed by controlling cravings. That is where most of the similarities end. You can stop smoking. You can't stop eating. Both weight loss and smoking cessation have to be handled differently.  With smoking, the client will come in and I will take him gently into a deep state of relaxation, and then use what we refer to as hypnotic deepeners to get their subconscious mind to the surface.  After that, I will use negative suggestions as in "as you look at someone smoking you can actually see the smoke traveling through their mouth, turning their teeth brown, going down their throat, and you can see the black soot and tar left in their throat...as you watch them you feel that same thick, black coating on your throat...so much so that it makes your throat feel scratchy and swollen, like you have to cough."

Usually at this point the client will indeed cough.  After all of the negative suggestions, and I will continue, I switch to positive.. Always ending the session on a positive note is key to having the hypnosis feel like they are empowered and in control.  Positive suggestions for both smoking and weight loss tend to be very similar.  No voodoo, no tricks, just good old fashioned health and vanity!  "You feel clearer and more in control of your body and mind, you look fantastic, your skin is now glowing a beautiful healthy color," etc.

For weight loss, there are many ways to go including negative to positive.  You can focus on one specific food they have an issue with.  For instance, they eat too many bagels.  "As you look at the bagel, browned perfectly, with a soft center you realize that the center is starting to move.  There are maggots drilling holes and you can see them devouring the tan outside of the bagel.  Those poppy seeds on the bagel are beginning to change....they have legs now!  They are crawling and attacking the bagel. Ooh, look, they are planting their eggs inside so all of their spider babies can hatch.  Won't that be great?  If you bite into the maggot and spider infested bagel the babies will be born into your nice warm stomach!" etc, etc.

Then, of course, stress all of the benefits to losing extra, no longer useful weight, or quitting smoking... By making healthy choices they will create and possess a beautiful body, mind and spirit.  Also, I will use everyday references such as being able to walk up the stairs without losing their breath or going on vacation and feeling comfortable with a bathing suit on.  Imagine being able to shop for clothes at the stores in the mall without having to worry whether you'll be able to fit into them!

I had one client who to this day can no longer eat her favorite candy; Snickers bars!  She actually turns her head in the other direction as she passes them in the grocery store!  Initially, she had no idea why.  Now, she knows, and even the knowing doesn't stop her from her Snickers avoidance!


Eric Michaels: Wow, that's a pretty good story!  I know it would be hard for me to give up my favorite candy bar!  So, how long does it usually take for hypnosis to actually work and produce results?
Melanie Barnum: That's a great question, and one I get asked quite often!  I usually allow for an hour for each session.  But, that will include, not only the hypnotism portion, it also includes getting to know the client and what their needs are.  The actual hypnotism may be as little as 5 minutes or it could take the full hour.  When facilitating regression therapy I usually take more time.  First I relax the client, and then deepen their hypnotic state before regressing them back, whether doing current life or past life regression.

The number of actual hypnosis sessions needed depends upon each individual client.  Quite often, only one is necessary for the client to experience results.  As a general rule of thumb I usually let the client know that one session will begin the process.  If they are coming for weight loss we also look at "recharging" their hypnotic batteries periodically.  Just imagine your body like a car.  Whether you take meticulous care of your car's appearance or performance or not, there are certain things you have to do to maintain it such as filling it with gas, getting a periodic oil change and changing the spark plugs.  It's the same with weight loss hypnosis.  Every once in a while you need a jump start to recharge your weight loss drive.


Eric Michaels: Why use hypnosis instead of a different type of weight loss or stop smoking aid?
Melanie Barnum: Most weight loss and stop smoking aids sold in stores either come in the form of drugs, shakes or patches.  While these may work and accomplish what you are hoping they also contain different chemicals which you are then ingesting into your body.  These chemicals can change your metabolism, affect your mood, and even cause serious problems as well as posing health risks.  They can also create the yo-yo diet effect.  This means you may very well lose weight or even quit smoking.  But, more often than not, when you stop taking these drugs you will gain back what you've lost and then some!

Having said that, there is no reason hypnosis can not be combined with other modalities.  For instance, for someone going to weekly meetings at weight watchers we can tailor their hypnotism session to include references so they can achieve their weight watchers goals easier, allowing them to be a part of a weight loss group and use hypnotic suggestion to increase their ability to create a whole new life for themselves.  It doesn't have to be an either/or situation.  It can actually be a great and lasting partnership.

Luckily for everyone, we are evolving and shifting as a whole into a more aware society.  We are becoming awakened to the idea of mind, body and spirit being connected in ways we never imagined before.  This doesn't just pertain to the metaphysical aspect; it also helps on the hypnosis front.  Hypnotism is a natural remedy for many ailments, not limited to weight loss or smoking. Because of our increased interest we are looking for these more natural aids which is helping to bring hypnosis to many more communities that were previously unaware hypnosis was even an option.

As someone who works with hypnosis as well as intuition and energy, I am able to bring this  together to create a lasting change.  By helping them tap into themselves I can open them up to a whole new world; something that is better for them and that can help them attain whatever they want in life, that can help them make lasting changes for the better.

That to me, is a far greater proposition than taking a pill which not only affects their chemical balance, but has very short term, non lasting results.


Eric Michaels: So hypnosis really does change lives!  That's amazing!  Do you have to go into a hypnotist's office in order to be hypnotized and have it work?  Does it work in groups? Is it possible to practice self hypnosis? Or even hypnosis over the phone?
Melanie Barnum: I'm glad you asked!  Hypnosis works really well one on one, in a professional office.  However, with a good hypnotist, it can work anywhere!  The average success rate for large weight loss groups, and I'm talking about really large audiences, is upwards of about 40%.  Now, having said that, you have to remember what I said earlier.  We need a bit of a recharge on occasion!  It is also more difficult for us to relax when we are with 100 of our closest friends!  Often we are more focused on the person up on the stage than we are on ourselves.  Smaller groups generally have a higher success rate, plus if you get hypnotized with someone you know they can become your partner in achieving your goals which always helps!

Self hypnosis is a great way to get you started with hypnosis and to reinforce hypnotic suggestions!  By simply repeating something over and over with the belief and intent that it will become an automatic part of your subconscious you are enabling yourself to achieve your goal.  When I teach clients how to use self hypnosis I also teach them how to visualize what they want.  They are able to create symbolic representations of what they want or what they want to be rid of in their lives which helps give them a focus point. What the mind believes, the body will achieve!

Tele classes are a great way to utilize hypnotism.  Many people are too embarrassed or too busy to make a one on one appointment with a hypnotist.  However, given the option, they are very willing to pick up the phone, anonymously, and dial in to their own personal hypnotic suggestions!  I regularly do hypnosis teleclasses, which work well because clients are able to actually call in anytime during the week and get their session!  This way they are able to make the call and lie down or even tape the session to use later when they are somewhere they can relax and focus on the voice!  I offer weight loss hypnosis over the phone, and as I said, there are many people who would rather keep their weight loss endeavors private so it works out much better for them.  It is also a cheap alternative to a one on one in office session!  It also works well for people who can't physically come to the office, whether due to disabilities or geographical location.

All in all, hypnosis is a great, natural way to achieve whatever goals you have.  What the mind believes, the body can achieve!

250sq_edrugstore.jpg


Abbreviated Transcript of Interview with Debbie Lane


Eric Michaels: Why is it that people who make and act upon important decisions all day, every day can’t seem to follow through with stop smoking?
Debbie Lane: Thinking in the conscious (or rational) mind is how we learn a new skill or attack a new challenge. Once a task becomes routine we go into “the zone”, the area known as the subconscious mind.  So, when we are making logical, conscious decisions we are applying that part of the mind.  We know at a rational level that smoking is not good for us and we are well aware of all the harm that cigarettes cause our bodies.  The problem is, it has become a habit and even to many smokers a “friend”.  They light up without a thought; turn to their “friend” in times of stress, loneliness or some other emotional need.  Every behavior we have benefits us in some way or we wouldn’t exhibit it.  The habit of smoking is often a filler of time or consolation.  I have had many clients who are mourning the loss of that “friend”.


Eric Michaels: Smoking is a friend that has always been there for many smokers, how do they get over the grief?
Debbie Lane: Once again, at a logical level we understand that a friend isn’t a very good friend that empties our wallets, causes us harm and lies to us on a regular basis.  What we do in hypnosis is allow the subconscious mind to understand that.  As that part of the mind is programmed to protect us, once that is truly understood, it immediately begins the process of stopping that relationship. The subconscious mind has an amazing ability to help a smoker create new and healthier ways of filling the needs that they once believed smoking did.

I encourage the client to create new habits and beliefs regarding their healthy habits while in trance. We can review each of the reasons that the individual was attached to smoking and ask the internal genius, care giver (whatever title is appropriate) for a better way to meet that need.  We also allow issues of self image and self esteem to be improved.  It no longer is necessary have the identity of a smoker.  In fact, a stronger, more powerful self image is created.


Eric Michaels: How do you make sure the cravings go away?
Debbie Lane: Many of what the smokers previously believed were cravings were actually the body detoxifying.  So, while the body mind connection can cause those sensations to lessen, any remaining sensations are redefined in the thought process as feelings of self empowerment.  It is also explained that a thought, any thought is one of thousands of inputs in any given moment.  So, a thought of a cigarette is not the same as a need or a craving.  A thought grows as it is given attention.  Instead of fighting the thought of a cigarette, take three deep breathes and become aware of the body for a moment.  Breathing deeply, focus on the improved sensations of the breath as it enters the body. Exhale any distractions. Breathe in the understanding of being stronger than Big Tobacco. Exhale any person, situation or thing that might want to take your power away.  Breathe in the moment, exhale and relax.


Eric Michaels: What makes your program so effective and long lasting?
Debbie Lane: I approach smoke cessation as an opportunity for the individual to become stronger in more ways than one.  This is about making a personal choice to breathe easier, to feel self empowered and appreciate themselves.  While I have an audio that is effective for stop smoking and many have used it, when I work with an individual, I record our session and give them that to use as well.  It is a great way to reinforce what they accomplished in session.

Most of my clients report better sleep after a hypnosis session with me.  So, the body heals and recovers while they sleep at night.  The recording often helps to continue the process of better sleeping as well.

I also have hand outs that my clients read and sign.  These have practical suggestions and easy follow up activities to really make this a commitment.  Now, when I say easy, I really mean easy.  Things such as taking three deep breathes every time you get into the car as a reminder of your desire to be focused and relaxed.  It doesn’t get much easier than that!

I work with clients around the world, using Skype.  They have the same fabulous and long lasting results as those who come to my office and they do it in the comfort of their own home!


Eric Michaels: What if you are strong willed or strong minded, will this program still work?
Debbie Lane: It is a common fallacy that hypnosis is for the weak minded. Actually, quite the opposite is true.  The client is in control the whole time.  A good strong mind is well equipped to problem solve and create new habits.  I have been tickled many times by a client who tells me they can’t go into trance.  They have even been told by another hypnotist that they can’t go into trance!  We all experience trance on a daily basis; we just don’t call it that.  But, if you have ever been to sleep in your life, then you have been through the brainwaves identified as trance. Just recently I worked with a woman who had been told she couldn’t go into trance. Well, obviously there was no rapport between her and the hypnotist who told her that.  She went into trance so fast it was amazing.  What’s more, she gave up a two pack a day habit!  She has a fabulous mind, and now she is using it for her benefit.

Tina Schumacher discusses the following on this eHealth Radio Episode:


Quit Smoking with Acupuncture


Eric Michaels: Is Acupuncture an effective way to quit smoking?
Tina Schumacher: Acupuncture treatment for nicotine dependency is safe, drug-free and works with your body to re-establish its chemical balance. Acupuncture has an 88% success rate according to the Journal of Medicine. It helps to overcome the physical addiction to nicotine, and significantly reduces the cravings and stress associated with withdrawal. There is only one condition: You Must Be Ready to Quit.


Eric Michaels: What is Involved?
Tina Schumacher: The two-treatment program is given on consecutive days, spaced 12-18 hours apart. The first starts with an orientation. Here you learn what is involved with your acupuncture treatment and undergo your first session. After your first treatment, withdrawal symptoms are reduced to a tolerable or insignificant level. After the second treatment, there is minimal or no craving or withdrawal symptoms. Occasionally a third “booster” treatment is needed. Our experienced staff will make you aware of the chemical changes your body will be making and how to avoid pitfalls in the future.


Eric Michaels: How Does it Work?
Tina Schumacher: Acupuncture releases endorphins and neurotransmitters. This dramatically reduces cravings and withdrawal symptoms which most people experience when trying to quit cold turkey.


Eric Michaels: Is it painful?
Tina Schumacher: No. The sterile needles are extremely thin and specifically designed to be virtually painless. Lights are lowered and music is provided to enhance your relaxation. Some people even fall asleep during the 30 minute treatment.


Eric Michaels: How Does One Get Started?
Tina Schumacher: Take the first critical step: decide that you are ready to stop smoking. Then evaluate your upcoming month and look for a time when things are less stressful. A week before treatment, to get prepared:

  • Begin drinking more water.
  • Start reducing the number of cigarettes you smoke daily.
  • Change your routine, for example avoid smoking in your car or right after a meal.
