In today's society, there are many different products that people put out in order to help people get over their addiction to tobacco. However, a great deal of the time, many of these products can be ineffective. That brings up the question: what makes some products more ineffective than others? Can hypnosis be used to help cure one's need for a cigarette?
Hypnosis can be used to treat many different kinds of problems, ranging from asthma to weight loss. It works by making the hypnotized person more suggestible, and then in turn changing their perceptions on different things. One must keep in mind however that the person who is hypnotized still has free will over what they think/do. If a person truly wanted to quit smoking cigarettes, and used hypnosis to do so, that person would be more succeptible to the idea of quitting. That would greatly increase the chance that he or she would stop smoking. I believe that one's will power plays a huge role not only in the use of hypnosis, but for all kinds of treatments. If someone really wants a change and believe the treatment they are getting will help them, they will have a greater success rate of it actually working.
