Most people know the negative consequences of smoking cigarettes, cigars, or other tobacco products but still find it nearly impossible to quit. You can successfully quit smoking with the advice, support, and tools of a trained therapist or counselor.
Smoking cessation therapy uses primarily nicotine replacement therapy and behavioral therapies to help reduce urges and make it easier to put the tobacco down for good. Trained therapists can help you develop other coping mechanisms, prevent triggers, and create new thoughts and behaviors when you feel a craving.

One successful tool used by smoking cessation therapists is hypnotherapy, which can help you create new thoughts and behaviors in a safe environment. If you’re not sure, read licensed therapist Keiko Wolfe’s description of how hypnotherapy can help you quit smoking.
