Hypnosis To Stop Smoking
Find Out Why Our Hypnosis Sessions Are The Best Way To Stop Smoking Forever
For most people, sugar addiction goes back to their childhood, when they learned to find comfort in the things that they ate. At that time, the mind started associating feeling better with eating certain foods. That’s because eating sugary foods causes you to be awash in neurotransmitters that make you feel calm, relieved, and rewarded. This is what drives people to eat when they are upset or stressed and have no other coping mechanism. The mind tries to relieve stress by ensuring that the brain’s “feel good” chemicals are released.
If you are experiencing sugar addiction, you know that it can be very hard to stop. The more sugar-laden substances you eat or drink, the more neurotransmitters are released, which ultimately causes a deficiency that is only satiated when you eat more sugar, just so that you can just feel normal again. That is why it is said that sugar is addictive. During our hypnosis sessions, we will be programming your mind to see sugary foods and drinks in a completely different way, so that you are able to take a different set of actions that are in line with your goals.
Do you wonder why you haven’t been able to stop smoking on your own?
How it Started
You were probably a teenager when you first started smoking, maybe due to peer pressure. Back then, you had the choice of either fitting in by smoking like your other friends or being the odd one out — a loner. At first, you probably started coughing and choking. You noticed that the taste was pretty disgusting, but after a while, you got used to it and continued.
This is where the mind connection to smoking starts. Why? Because there is a part of our mind called the subconscious, whose main goal is to protect you from any dangers. That being said, you may be wondering why your subconscious mind would allow you to start smoking in the first place. Your mind is like a super-computer that sums up situations at high speeds. It decided that there were two choices — either start smoking and be accepted by your friends as part of the pack, or become a loner and possibly go into depression due to the rejection. The resulting depression might even lead you to do something grave like kill yourself. That, your mind could not allow. Hence, your subconscious decided that smoking protected you from danger as well as helped you make more friends. By this logic, smoking = safety.
With time, repetition cemented your smoking habit into your subconscious. As an adult, you no longer have the need to smoke for protection and acceptance. You now continue to smoke, but for a different reason — to de-stress via addictive nicotine. Whenever you feel stressed and anxious, you pick up a cigarette and in a few moments you feel calm again. Your mind has learned to associate your smoking behavior with the toxic calm of nicotine.
Just A Few Stop Smoking Testimonials
I went to Sasha in desperation to try to stop smoking. I really did not think it was going to work. I tried and tried and tried to no avail. I went to St. Johns which did work for several
years. But I slipped back after two years.
When I left Sasha’s office, she gave me the tools to continue to stop smoking. I am delighted to say that I have to had a cigarette for 7 years!!!!
The experience was easy, comfortable and as you can see very effective. Working with her made this unique process easy and comfortable. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND her . Please don’t walk, RUN to her if you also are experiencing trauma, addiction or counseling.

I am delighted to say that Sasha has assisted me in breaking a 30yr pack a day habit! I am almost 2 years now into being smoke free and I am feeling great. Thanks Sasha!
For those contemplating smoking cessation through hypnosis please note that you need to be really ready. After 2 sessions with Sasha I did not have any cravings but definitely withdrawal symptoms which peaked at 3 weeks. I mark every day off on a calendar as each non smokingday is a triumph!

Words nor actions can express how grateful I am to Sasha for helping me on my wellness journey to become a living miracle. I live with secondary progressive Multiple Sclerosis and was facing homelessness or institutionalization due to the negative effects of MS on my body. I knew I needed to take control of my life and break addictions like cigarettes. Years of unsuccessful attempts ended with Sasha. She not only helped me quit smoking, but also was the one to help me begin my journey of being a living miracle who kicks MS to the curb all day everyday. Today I live almost 100% symptom free and credit the start to my journey with the work of Sasha. In addition Sasha is a master of her craft with the most compassion I have ever met. I recommend Sasha highly and am grateful everyday for her work.
I went to Sasha for hypnotherapy almost 3 months ago to stop smoking. I am still so amazed at how easy she made this for me. I was a smoker for 20 years and had tried numerous times to quit. She is so awesome at what she does, I feel like I want to thank her every single day! I have never had a craving to smoke since leaving her that day. I feel as if I was never even a smoker in my life, and so I do not have the feeling like I am missing anything. I can’t express how amazing and great I feel! thank you Sasha so much! I honestly can’t thank you enough!!

One year ago, Sasha helped me quit smoking. After over 10 years of a wretched habit, I can confidently say that I will never smoke again. I definitely don’t think hypnosis is a magic wand and you need to want to make a change in order for it to be effective. For me, it was my last hope and it worked.
I returned to her recently for help in other areas of struggle and her techniques have been effective once again. She provides a highly caring environment that is free from any criticism or judgement and I am so grateful to be able to turn to her when I feel like I have no where left to go.

Sasha is the most amazing hypnotherapist ! She is the only one who helped me stop smoking for good! I had tried everything patches, alen carr, books, other hypnotherapists and non of them could help me. Its been almost a year now and I haven’t smoked and I feel like I never smoked in my life- also when I stopped I didn’t feel any major anxiety like other times I had tried to stop, instead I felt calm and confident. I recently had another session with her for stage freight and I am constantly working on improving myself with the help of Sasha.
I would definitely recommend her , she is an amazing person and hypnotherapist!

I went to Sasha about 5 months ago and have been meaning to write a review ever since.. I was a smoker and a stubborn one at that. I was open to hypnosis but with a healthy skepticism.. Sasha’s smoking package which was so easy visiting her twice and recordings of the sessions help completely worked for me. I have not picked up a cigarette since.. Sure I have had the urge, but her techniques have made me strong and able to resist.. She puts you at ease and is a true professional. I would recommend Sasha to anyone wanting to kick that habit!
Amazing doesn’t begin to define Sasha Carrion. I have had 2 sessions with Sasha and after years of smoking thanks to her help I have become and non-smoker. I have never been happier before! My Best friend would always talk about the amazing transition into a beautiful life that comes after Sasha and I finally was able to experience it! I feel like I want to thank her every single day! I have never had a craving to smoke since leaving her that day. I’m amazed at my results! Now I can’t wait for my next session with the lovely, and most professional Sasha. I would refer anyone from family to friends to a stranger on the street everyone deserves the gift that Sasha has to give. I world is truly blessed to have a person like Sasha!
