Big Tobacco is Making it Hard to Quit Smoking

It’s true smoking is becoming less acceptable in modern society, but the tobacco industry is finding it’s ways around that by making other tobacco products cheaper and more available. This includes the promotion of roll your own products as well as buying cigarette cartons direct from the factory. This is especially true in the United Kingdom where regulations on tobacco are more lax than in America.

These efforts by Big Tobacco are less concerned with getting new tobacco users as they are with digging their addictive claws deeper into existing users. Certainly cheaper tobacco products provide an easier introduction to smoking but Big Tobacco is more interested in the long term support provided by addicted smokers. Many smokers have discovered they can maintain their habit by simply switching brands, with some brands comparable in cost cigarettes at the 2002 average.

As the budget of the average smoker in the UK declines tobacco companies are compensating by providing a wider range of brands and costs. The United States has help to demonstrate by increasing tobacco price as one of the best deterrents to reduce smoking. Always thinking long term profits Big Tobacco has countered by an increase in availability of cheaper products in conventional stores to thwart public health campaigns.

Knowing smoking rates are significantly higher among poorer communities, disadvantaged smokers are more likely to use cheap tobacco. The availability of cheap cigarettes could also be contributing to the widening socio-economic disparities associated with smoking.

All The More Reason To Quit Smoking

The reasons to quit smoking are many with health and money being the most common. In the light of this information there is also a more socially conscious reason. Every cigarette represents a loss of income from the poor to the over privileged tobacco industry. Tobacco use also acts as a devious way to redirect control from the poor to the rich. The only real solution to this is to make quitting smoking a social movement of, by and for the economic underclass.

“I can’t be hypnotized!” Yes, you can.

“I can’t be hypnotized!” Yes, you can.

Probably due to basic misconceptions about hypnosis there are people who firmly believe they cannot be hypnotized.

There are several reasons for this belief and by talking about them I’ll be better able to discuss hypnosis in general.

Do your research and you’ll uncover this definition of hypnosis: “Hypnosis is a process of changing behaviors by bypassing the conscious mind critical factor to make acceptable change at a subconscious level.

What is hypnosis like?

What that doesn’t explain is what hypnosis is like to someone who has never experienced it. As a result people take stories and hearsay to create their beliefs about hypnosis. Much of what people are exposed to about hypnosis is so fantastical they can’t imagine being able to be hypnotized.

My first response to someone who says “I can’t be hypnotized” is to explain that hypnosis is simply an intense and pleasant state of focus. Thus it’s a natural process that occurs under certain conditions. Because it’s all about paying attention the only people who can’t be hypnotized either don’t have an attention span or can’t/won’t follow instructions.

People will sometimes say it as a challenge “You can’t hypnotize me”. In many of these cases they believe hypnosis is a contest of wills with the hypnotist dominating the subject so there is a natural defensiveness. To these people I say “You may be right. I can’t hypnotize people who can’t follow instructions or simply aren’t able to pay attention. But if you like we could do a small test to make sure you’re not one of those people.” From there I demonstrate how simply paying attention can make dramatic changes to perception.

The only example of people where I’ve had problems hypnotizing were people so anxious it pulls their attention away from everything else. These so-called difficult people can still be hypnotized by using different tactics to help them redirect their attention.

The bottom line is you CAN be hypnotized if you want and if you are willing to follow instruction.

Hypnosis For Pain Control 

According to an article published in the Journal of General Internal Medicine, Mindfulness training and hypnotic suggestion significantly reduced acute pain experienced by hospital patients.The study took place over a year involving 244 patients at the Utah Hospital in Salt Lake City, Utah. When testing three different methods of pain control, hypnosis yielded the best results. This was done with only the most basic of training in hypnosis, performed by social workers. There are in fact countless studies on hypnosis and pain relief. Some people even come to us before a surgery to prepare for it. 

You can be free from physical pain through Hypnotherapy

What does this mean to you? Firstly, hypnosis is a scientifically tested non-drug option for pain control. You can experience good results from only a minimal amount of hypnotherapy, imagine the possibility of success with a 20 year veteran hypnotist who has specialized in helping people who are suffering with debilitating pain. New Hampshire Hypnosis has been in operating since 2009. Chief hypnotist, David Barron has been a professional clinical hypnotist since 1998. 

Are you curious about using Hypnosis to free yourself from pain?

If you would like more information on how pain can be controlled through hypnosis contact New Hampshire Hypnosis at (603)589-8033. Our pain control hypnosis model requires 3 sessions and most people achieve the result they are seeking from the very first session. By the time you are done you won’t have the shackles of pain dragging you down and keeping you hostage. Imagine your life as a person who is liberated and has a new lease on life. Regardless of what you may have been told the pain you are feeling is part of a warning system your body has set up as a defense. Even chronic pain can be overcome through the thorough mental conditioning that occurs when your subconscious mind is satisfied that there isn’t anything you should worry about.

Why should you listen to our FREE hypnosis audio presentations?

I’d like to take some time to explain the benefits you can get from the free hypnosis audios available on this site.

When you listen you’ll immediately notice the hypnosis audios are designed to put your outer world on hold and provide some time and space for you mind to rest and regroup. After just one listening most people report MUCH less stress and a clearer perspective on how to handle things. This is often enough reason to download these audios for when you need them, but here is added benefits to regular daily listening. It’s been documented that by listening to one of these audio recording on a daily basis. The audio presentations we have on this site are simply designed to institute a greater sense of acceptance with yourself at the core while improving your ability to focus and thus renders you more susceptible to hypnotherapy in general, increasing the chances of your success in past and future hypnosis session. These sessions have also been designed to alleviate stress and promote health and wellness in your life. People who know themselves and are happy with their lives are more confident and age slower than those who constantly worry and feel like they are on an endless path to getting to know themselves.

Hypnosis clients are asked to commit to listening to one hypnosis process at least once a day for the duration we work together.  Most keep listening daily long after our work together has ended. Feel free to share in the benefits!  You can download your free hypnosis audio at http://newhampshirehypnosis.com/audio/ If you have any further questions feel free to call my office at (603) 589-8033.

What is New With New Hampshire Hypnosis? – March 2017

Over the past year I’ve done some serious reflection on how to better serve my hypnosis clients.

I started with a very simple motto “One result in one session” and indeed I can consistently get amazing results in one session. What I’m always looking for is improving my clients lives beyond the original change they wanted.

For that reason and many more every one of my clients gets a three session minimum. What I’ve seen from this small change in amazing. Not only do three session help reinforce the change, they help generalize the change in all aspects of their lives. So, in other words, they stop smoking (or lose weight or get rid of anxiety) AND they start feeling more confident, stand taller and generally start living a much healthier way of life.

One client said she noticed her relationships with family members improved.

Understand I don’t intentionally suggest those improvements, they tend to happen on their own when clients get the reinforcement from more than one session.

Another benefit is that three sessions allows for enough follow up to help fine tune any changes the client needs for success. Because the client has multiple sessions the comfort level is greater each time and each following session is easier, more enjoyable and gets a bigger “Wow!” than the last.

What’s changed with New Hampshire Hypnosis is now I ask every client to commit on three sessions. Most people WILL get the result they want the first session, it’s true, but they will get SO MUCH MORE with the following two sessions.

I’m eager to explain this in more detail. You’re welcome to call my office at (603)589-8033.

Hypnosis Over Skype. Yes, it really works!

Because I help a LOT of people over Skype I made this video to answer a few questions.

It is directed both to possible hypnosis clients and to hypnotists who have thought about adding Skype hypnosis to their services.

 

The Problem With “Hypnosis Is Magic”

The good news is hypnosis is amazingly effective at helping people. The bad news is many people think hypnosis is magic.

Hypnosis isn’t magic. It’s a very specific process that anyone can experience if they have an attention span and can follow instructions.

Thanks to the media and other poor representations of hypnosis in pop culture there is a large number of misinformed people who think hypnosis is mystical, magical and even, God forbid, satanic.

For those people whose minds are already made up about this there’s nothing I can say. But for those willing to learn and put aside preconception they will find out that hypnosis is a natural process we all experience.

The problem of “Hypnosis is Magic” occurs when people come to me with some of the following requests:

Hypnosis as a cure for your relationship.

I once had a couple come to me requesting to hypnotize the wife to prove that she didn’t have an affair five years earlier while the husband was passed out drunk. Clearly, that was not a hypnosis problem, it was a relationship problem. I told them to see a counselor to help them with their trust issues.

Hypnosis for someone else’s problem

I still get asked “Can you make my kid/parent/spouse fill-in-the-blank?” Basically they are saying “I can’t control my this person the way I want. Can you help?”

The short answer to that is “Maybe I can, but only if they ask me.”

I know the strength of hypnosis and in some cases it’s possible to change people without them knowing but I won’t do that. It’s too much work and there are no guarantees.

Hypnosis to forget

This is usually requested because of pain or trauma that people want to get over. As powerful as hypnosis is total amnesia for events is hit-or-miss at best. Yes, it’s possible but it’s seldom efficient.

A better solution to painful memories and trauma is to strengthen character of the client so can remember events without associated pain. Former traumas become simply events of their life. They will agree they were painful but feeling stronger and those events no longer control them on a day-to-day basis.

Hypnosis for some new age psychic energy thing

Because hypnosis has such broad applications it’s been applied heavily in the new age arena of mystics, psychics and energy workers. While I wish them well in using it, for me hypnosis is a very powerful and precise tool for helping people. Things like ‘opening the third eye’ or ‘raising my own energy’ are just too nonspecific for me to measure. Hypnosis is best suited for changing unwanted behaviors and enhancing performance.

Conclusion

Yes, When I’m hypnotizing someone I go for the ‘Wow!’, that’s what they proclaim when the session is over. It’s a testament of the intensity of what they experienced and proof to them they were in hypnosis.

People will tell you the quality of change they feel from hypnosis is “magical” but that does NOT mean it is magic.

Hypnotizing People In Airports

MyNameTag

The name tag I wore while traveling.

The title “Hypnotizing People In Airports” isn’t about how facinating airport traveler are.

It’s about how I do hypnosis on people IN AN AIRPORT!

As I was traveling over the holidays I decided to wear my name tag that says “My Name Is David. I’ll be your HYPNOTIST”. It was a social experiment just to see how people would react.

On a layover in Detroit I went to the Coney Island burger joint to eat. The waitress, Monica, asked about my name tag and immediately wanted to know if I could help her become a non-smoker.

That was all I needed.

In about 15 minutes she quite easily proclaimed herself a non-smoker.

Monica even reviewed me on yelp.com!
Here’s the link.

I did this all for free… in the spirit of giving!!!!

I’m Wishing you a WONDERFUL 2016!

Sincerely,

David Barron

PS, I don’t know how to contact Monical so if you happen to know Monica, who works at Coney Island restaurant in the Detroit airport, tell her I said hello!

Why New Years Resolutions Don’t Matter

new-years-resolutionsMost of us consider the New Year as a time to re-evaluate … EVERYTHING … and vow to do better. That is the origin of the New Years Resolution.

This is the reason sales of gym memberships soar in January and why gym attendance plummets in February.

It’s hard to imagine what can happen in one year but each year we try again to do better.

Understand, I’m not telling anyone to stop making New Years resolutions. In fact, I’ think we would do better to make a resolution EVERYDAY for only that day.  That way it’s more likely over time that change will happen slowly over the year instead of all at once from January 1st onward.

Think of what you could do if you made 365 small day-long resolutions in a row. You would probably accomplish more with those 365 small resolutions than with a solitary yearly one.

What kind of daily resolution could you make?

  • To be kinder to those closest to you for this one day.
  • To repeat positive phrases quietly in your mind for this one day.
  • To show up on time for this one day.
  • To remove social media from your life for this one day.
  • To give the best service you can for this one day.
  • To read something positive for this one day.
  • To give an honest compliment to three or more people just for today.
  • Anonymously perform one act of kindness for today.

The list can go on and on.

Why wait for a year to roll around when you can resolve to do something good every time the day begins?

Perhaps the title of this article is wrong, New Years resolutions ARE important. Sometimes what is more important isn’t the big efforts we make to improve our lives, but the small ones.
