Hypnotherapy in regards to smoking can make a person realize its dangerous effects. During a session, the patient can be asked to focus on the negative effects smoking can have on the body, and that the body is important to live. Just like all forms of hypnosis, the smoker needs to utilize self-hypnosis beyond the sessions with the practitioner. Every time they wish to smoke they need to repeat the affirmations and remember its negative effects. With hypnosis, the emotion and connection the smoker has to the cigarettes can be cut, and the reliance the individual thinks they have on smoking can be eliminated.
