What Every Smoker Should Know!
If you want to smoke, that is your business.  If you want to stop smoking that is my business.

Smoking causes approximately 440,000 premature death in the United States annually, leading to 13.2 years of potential life lost for male smokers, and 14.5 years lost for female smokers.
For centuries, people smoked tobacco, which comes from the plant nicotiana tabacum.  

The reason tobacco is used by so many people is because it contains a powerful drug known as nicotine, that is very addictive.  When tobacco is smoked, nicotine is absorbed by the lungs and quickly moved into the bloodstream where it is circulated throughout the brain.  All of this happens very rapidly.  In fact, nicotine reaches the brain within 8 seconds after someone inhales tobacco smoke. 

Nicotine can also enter the bloodstream through the mucous membranes that line the mouth and even through the skin.
Nicotine affects the entire body.  Nicotine acts directly on the heart rate and blood pressure.  It also acts on the nerves that control respiration to change breathing patterns.  In high concentrations, nicotine is deadly; in fact, one drop of purified nicotine on the tongue will kill a person.  It is so lethal that it has been used as a pesticide for centuries.  Hypnosis has been used very effectively for smoke cessation.  Some people have relied on nicotine patches (nicotine transdermal system) made by Nicoderm and Habitrol but there are risks associated with the use of this products.  Hypnosis is a very effective and safe modality.

Records have shown that hypnosis is one of the most effective modalities in dealing with smoke cessation.  But like any instrument, most of its success depends on its operator.  Using hypnosis for effective smoke cessation is combining a positive attitude from the hypnotherapist with specific skills and suggestions.

Jacob Bimblich has been in practice for over 25 years and over 90% of the clients that come to him for smoke cessation have been referred to him by others who have been successfully treated by him.  

Every smoker is injured to some degree with every cigarette he or she lights.  A one pack a day smoker puts one quart of tobacco tar into his or her lungs every year.  As the lungs are painted with this sticky tar, chemicals cause the lungs to become still and lose their elasticity, a condition known as emphysema.

One of the most significant facts about emphysema is that it is irreversible and incurable.  Once the lung tissue has lost its elasticity and the air sacs have been ruptured, the lungs' function has been permanently destroyed.

Lung cancer is the leading cause of all cancer deaths, and the vast majority of lung cancers are caused by cigarette smoking.  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 spread to the liver, brain and bones.
