Stop Smoking With EFT

You probably know anyone who has successfully quit smoking with hypnotherapy or hypnosis. But how about EFT? As a hypnotherapist with 5 years’ experience helping others quit, I can see a future when EFT will be the method of choice. Why EFT and what is so special about it?
EFT is short for Emotional Freedom Techniques. It involves gently massaging certain acupressure points whilst repeating phrases made to free you from a bad feeling. In this instance, the bad feeling will be the smoking craving. Hence the “Freedom” section of the name.
Whether smoking cravings are purely emotional or not is subject to debate. I’ve certainly pushed the boundaries of this method for many physical conditions, and as a trained biochemist, I would seriously challenge anyone to define the dividing line between your emotional and the physical. As a matter of fact, many acupuncturists recommend acupuncture to permit your body to rebalance itself after quitting smoking. And the acupressure points that we use in EFT are the endpoints of the main acupuncture meridians. Only rather than using needles, we stimulate these points by way of a tapping sort of massage. We tap, usually with two fingers, on the region, thereby stimulating these meridians.
Faster EFT Practitioner
So what is different about the aftereffect of having EFT from the effect of having acupuncture? Well, with EFT, your brain is asked to create up a bad emotional state so that the acupressure will release you from that bad emotion. It is like the mind may be the office cleaner, who switches into the office unobtrusively and removes the rubbish/garbage for the council/municipality cleaners to take away. These workers subsequently come and take away the refuse and it is no longer in your office. Your workplace is then clean.
And why use EFT rather than hypnotherapy? Because the effect of helping your physical body plus your mind makes for a very strong combination. Although you could have EFT in hypnosis, this entails the practitioner speaking at a slower rate than using standalone EFT. With standalone EFT, as the practitioner can carry out the procedure at a considerably faster pace, they can have more done in the same timeframe. In other words, the procedure with EFT reaches further and goes deeper.
I estimate that within the next five years, EFT will have replaced hypnotherapy as the approach to choice for quitting smoking. And when ex-smokers-to-be require a recommendation to greatly help them stop, they will be asking for an excellent EFT Practitioner. I anticipate that day.
