Stop Smoking

by Charles Wm. Skillas, PhD, DD, BCH, CI, FNGH, MCCHt


Tobacco is one of the most dangerous substances that you can take into your body. Over 200 known poisonous substances are in tobacco smoke. Nicotine, arsenic, cyanide, carbon monoxide, formaldehyde and phenol are a few of the more commonly known ones.

A two pack a day smoker shortens his or her life by eight years, and even light smokers, those who smoke one to nine cigarettes a day, shorten their life expectancy about four years. Smokers take 22 percent more sick time than non-smokers and require 10 percent longer to recover from illnesses.

Every smoker is injured to some degree by every cigarette he lights. A one pack a day smoker puts one quart of tobacco tar into his or her lungs every year. As these sticky tars paint the lungs, chemicals cause the lungs to become stiff and lose their elasticity, a condition known as emphysema. It is significant that emphysema is irreversible and incurable. Once lung tissue has lost its elasticity and the air sacs rupture, the lungs' function is destroyed permanently.

Lung cancer is the leading cause of all cancer deaths, and cigarette smoking causes most lung cancers. The reason that lung cancer is particularly dangerous is because very early in its development the cancer is prone to spread throughout the bloodstream to other organs in the body. By the time the cancer is found, it has often already spread to the liver, brain and bones. The particularly sad fact is that the primary treatment of lung cancer is surgical removal with only about a 10 percent cure rate. The key treatment for lung cancer lies in prevention of the cancer through elimination of smoking.

Strokes are a common cause of death in patients having a combination of uncontrolled high blood pressure and a history of cigarette smoking. Smoking is also one of the leading causes of gingivitis, a gum disease The tars from tobacco smoke coat the crevices between the teeth and underneath the gums, causing deposits of destructive plaque and pockets of pus. Cancer of the lip is primarily caused by smoking and excessive exposure to sunlight.

Smokers have a high incidence of bladder and kidney cancer because the chemicals from tobacco tars, which have been absorbed into the bloodstream, are excreted through the urine. These cancer-causing chemicals are in constant contact with the bladder throughout all the years the person smokes and ultimately produce cancer in these organs.

Hypnotherapy is the best way to stop smoking permanently. If smoking is just a bad habit, then one session can make you a non-smoker for life. If your smoking results from deeply buried subconscious negative forcing functions, then hypnotherapy must uncover and eliminate these so your subconscious computer can be reprogrammed for you to become a permanent non-smoker who is healthy again.
