What would you and your partner do with over half a million pounds, £532,304.10 to be precise? Spend it on cigarettes perhaps? Well, if you and your partner both smoke 60 cigarettes a day between you, and you both smoke for another 50 years, this is exactly how much it will cost you.
Maybe you’re thinking that you don’t smoke that much. Ok then, a smoker who smokes 20 cigarettes a day for just 10 years will spend £25,773.09.
A smoker who plans to smoke 20 a day for 30 years will waste £90,396.43.
These figures are based on a packet of cigarettes costing £6.50 for the first year and then increasing by 1.5% per pack, per year, thereafter, and this is not unreasonable to assume as this year in the budget it jumped 37p alone (5.6%).
As well as significant health issues, if you’re a smoker perhaps you should be asking yourself if you can afford to smoke. Half a million pounds would pay off more than the average mortgage and buy a nice car, and even a yacht, but because you spend the money in small amounts, i.e. daily, you don’t really notice it. Smokers always find the money to smoke, even if they go short on other essentials.
Imagine your reaction if someone offered you £90,000 to stop smoking and never smoke again, and if you did you would have to pay it back. Would it change your desire to smoke? For most it would, however, there are some smokers that would refuse, stating that they enjoy smoking. These smokers are not ready to stop.
This illogical reasoning is caused by our conscious mind that has to make sense of why we do something as pitiful as smoking. I was a smoker for 27 years, I know. Often we use excuses like “I’m addicted”, “It’s a habit”, “It relaxes me”, etc, etc. These are just that, excuses. I have helped thousands of smokers to get rid of this pitiful behaviour.
So, how do you stop smoking? How do you get rid of this pitiful behaviour? Most smokers know that smoking is costly, both in financial terms and in the cost to our health, but the fear of stopping often holds them back. Many smokers think that they will fail, be ratty, not be able to concentrate, tearing their hair out and generally unable to cope with the imagined withdrawal symptoms and cravings. This fear of stopping is greater than the fear of smoking. Sometimes, our conscious reasoning process can work against us.
If you could stop smoking, feel good, significantly reduce any withdrawal symptoms or cravings so that you felt confident about your ability to stop smoking for good, would that change your view on stopping smoking? That it would cost a fraction of the money that you would have spent if you were to carry on smoking, would you stop smoking now?
The aim of using hypnotherapy to stop smoking is to help you become a happy non-smoker in one session.
Would you rather spend hundreds of thousands of pounds feeding a pitiful behaviour that has not got a single benefit to it, or stop smoking easily, quickly, naturally and safely?
Imagine someone offered you £90,396.43, how would you feel? Excited or afraid? You can do whatever you decide to do. Why not take that step to a richer future, both financially and in health. See our stop smoking programme

A success and highly recommend

|I visited the clinic for hypnotherapy to stop smoking. I saw Suzi Miller who I thought was absolutely fantastic. I was sceptical at first but her joyous manner relaxed me and I was hypnotised on the first attempt. I haven’t smoked for 4 months now and have been back for a top up session as I was thinking about it on a few occasions. I feel fitter, healthier, and have about £250 a month to use on something other than smoking cigarettes. Highly recommend if you’re looking to give up and ask for Suzi, she’s brilliant. Russ.

Thank You SICH

|I went to Paul White at SICH on 18 October to quit smoking. On 18 October I QUIT SMOKING. A hypnotherapy success story in three words. But there's more to it than that. I was advised by a friend with previous experience to seek help from SICH. This is why I ignored the pressure put on me to find a 'local' hypnotherapist in Dublin, pay Ryanair for the doubtful pleasure of getting myself across the Irish Sea and imposing on friends who not only putm up (and put up with me) for two nights but drive me right through London on a miserable morning to get me to SICH 50 minutes late. Paul W was unfazed by my wetly bedraggled, highly stressed state. He immediately put me at my ease (and my wet trainers on the radiator) and made me feel I'd arrived at the right place. I have nothing but the highest regard for SICH in general (easy, fast communication) and Paul W, in particular. Right now I am delighted to be in contact with him as a follow-up to my therapy. I feel I am in safe hands. Although I'm fully aware that I am responsible for myself, it's so good to know I can continue to ask Paul for help. Jennifer (Lopez)|
It's worked for me and I've saved £7300.

|2 years 5 months (£7300 saved) smoke free. I'm back to see Paul to help me change my behaviour around eating. I would recommend Paul to anyone considering Hypnotherapy and have even paid for a family member to see Paul as a birthday present to stop smoking. It's a great gift because as she's now saving £3000 a year I won't need to get her a present this year!|
The Surrey Institute of Clinical Hypnotherapy: Congratulations on the good work and thank you for your review.
Thank you again

|I was a heavy smoker, now I'm not. Nor am I an evangelical ex smoker which makes it easier for everyone. Many, many thanks.|
The Surrey Institute of Clinical Hypnotherapy: Thank you, Finn. Enjoy your life as a non-smoker.
It's changed my life!

|Super happy with the result, it helped to change my aggressive behaviour when I was younger and also helped me to stop smoking! Thank you very much!|
