Coke Zero Addiction Becomes Zero Addiction to Coke

Hi, Seattle Hypnosis Friends!

Another day, another happy hypnotherapy & NLP client. Here is a video testimonial from Nicole Tauber of Seattle, WA. She came in to Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP to take control of choices and habits. One goal in particular, she wanted to “turn off” her cravings for coke zero and diet coke and stop consuming those. We did that! Easy, peasy.  Coke Zero addiction become Zero addiction to coke.  🙂

Along the way, she mentioned an interest in turning off the desire for alcoholic beverages as well.  So, we did that.  Two for one!

Nicole is happy.

She reported to me that right after our session of Neuro-Linguistic Hypnotherapy® targeting this change, she went home and threw away all the coke in the house. Didn’t want it. She said she saw the bottle (of booze) in the cupboard and had no desire for it.  Hasn’t had any.  She was “amazed.”  Yay for NLP & Hypnosis!

We’re working more than just habit changes.  We’re increasing her sense of confidence and control in the world.  Not just about beverages, but about herself and life.  Nicole is doing great.  So could you.

Call me anytime and we’ll get you set up for your personal, positive changes.

All the Best,
Connie

The Janitor Stole My Trophies

Here’s a crazy story—about nicotine addiction.  And an added moral:  crime does not pay.

At Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP, I help all manner of clients accomplish all manner of goals.  One service I offer is smoking cessation.  Aka stop smoking, quit smoking, dump the cigarettes, cigars, chewing tobacco, and vaping.  And I’m good at helping!

Over the past 12+ years doing this work, I’ve helped myriads of people to quit tobacco.  Here and there, over the years, clients have so resolved: “I’m done with it!” during our session work, that they’ve given me their packs of cigarettes right there in the office.  The packs of discarded cigarettes piled up.

I decided to keep one or two packs of cigarettes of each brand given to me for future client testing purposes.  I keep them in the office.  I’ll bring them out during our work to try to entice smoking desire, and test a client’s firmness in their “No, thank you!   Get it away from me!”  I was also given tins of chewing tobacco, and vaping pens and oils.

These aren’t just cigarettes, and nicotine products, these are my trophies.   I’ve been collecting them for years, as proof of being good at my work.   Each one represents successful clients who are now nonsmokers.  They are very important to me.  I point the cigarette pile out to prospective clients frequently, explaining that any habit change is possible.

So, here’s the story.  A few days ago, I had another stop smoking client.  Testing time!  I asked him: “What’s your brand?”  He replied, and I reached for that brand of cigarettes.  The pack was still sitting on my shelf neatly stacked in the pile with others.  I grabbed the pack, opened it.  Empty!

Astonishment!  What?

Every pack of cigarettes I had there and had been using in my work for 12+ years, (now approximately 25 packs and brands) was nearly full.  And this pack was empty.  How?  I reached for another pack.  Empty.  Another.  Empty.  Another.  Two cigarettes in that one.  I grabbed one of the random cigarettes and said, “Pretend this is your brand.”

We did our work.  It went well.  When he left, I examined every pack of cigarettes stacked on the shelf behind my desk where I keep them.  Almost every pack was completely empty.  Some had one or two cigarettes in it.  I opened the tin of chewing tobacco.  About 1 teaspoon of tobacco was in there!  (It had been full).  I looked for the vaping pens and oils.  Missing.

My clients are never alone without me present in my inner office, and no one else visits the office but clients and students.  Nor are my clients or students the type of people to steal from me.  So, what happened here?

I jumped to the obvious conclusion.  The janitors!  A janitor servicing the office building alone late at night was the only one with opportunity.  The janitor(s) were stealing my cigarettes.   How desperate was this person, in the throes of some nicotine fit, jeopardizing his job and his company’s reputation (and contract) in deciding to steal my 10+ year old packs of stale cigarettes?

I notified property management and they did an investigation.  It turns out that the janitor confessed, and was let go by the cleaning co.  It’s still up in the air whether property management will terminate the cleaning company’s entire contract.

Meanwhile, my pile of cigarettes for testing is gone.  I’ve asked for reimbursement for the cigarettes from the cleaning company, so I can replace them.  But I can’t truly replace what I had.  My trophies!  Whatever cigarettes I purchase at the 7-11 would not be the actual smokes handed to me by happy clients newly freed from the habit.

Oh, well.  See, the janitor made a big mistake.  He could have come to me as a client himself and all temptation would have been removed.  That would have been a better decision, not only for his life but for his livelihood.

All the Best,
Connie

What’s Too Much? Take Control of Unwanted Habits

Best Seattle Hypnotherapy to stop smoking is Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP.

Break free!

Hi, Hypnosis Readers!

Medicos like to label things as “addiction.”  A huge insurmountable THING.  A skilled hypnotist ignores labels and looks at patterns of behavior.  We deduce unconscious “strategies” and how they can change.  What people don’t even realize is that, with the right tools, we have absolute control over our choices in life.  What we do and how we feel.  So, we reject the label “addict.”  We prefer “chooser.”  And if you’d like to choose to do something differently, yes, you can!

Gambling, alcohol, sugar…?  What’s your “too much?”  We can help.

One of my hypnosis clients, Marcy W, of Seattle, chose to take control of food choice and lose some weight.  She reported to me last week:  “Outstanding!  We’re making progress.  I wish I had done this 20 years ago!”  She had lost 25 pounds.

The right tool for the right project.

It’s Not a Warning — It’s a Hypnotic Suggestion for Addiction

Smokeless Tobacco is addictive.Hi, Hypno-Friends!

I’m helping a client to quit chewing tobacco.  It’s a habit he’s been doing for 25+ years!  He informed me as we started:  “I’m addicted to tobacco.”  He took that idea on board and created a belief out of it.  He believed he could never quit against the power of ADDICTION, therefore he delayed seeking help to do so.

The good news:  skilled NLP Neuro Linguistic Programming makes short work of removing “addictions.”  The mind controls the body, and that includes chemical responses.  The antidote to addiction is choice.  We can find and install new and different unconscious choices, and voila, there is no addiction.  I know this is true because I remove “addictions” daily, and did so for myself as well:  no more sugar addiction for me.

So, this client had his first session to quit chewing tobacco, and it went amazingly well.  At the end of the session, he was so convinced of his power of choice and control over tobacco, that he tossed his tobacco can into my garbage can.  Yay!  The work we did together looks great and we’ll see how he does in the world.

Later, I fished the tobacco out of the garbage (I use it for testing future clients).  And I was struck by this “warning label.”  “Smokeless tobacco is addictive.”  Wow!  This is not a warning to create non-use of tobacco.  It’s the opposite!   It’s a suggestion.  A suggestion which, if accepted, creates addiction.

Conscious mind will look at the words and say:  “Oh, I shouldn’t be doing this, should I?”  And reach in for more tobacco.  Conscious mind does not control the habit.  UNconscious mind will look at the words and, as the obedient servant it is, create what is suggested.  UNconscious mind says:  “Ok, we can do that!” and creates addiction.  If this is meant to be a “warning label,” it is a miserable failure.  I suspect that tobacco manufacturers hope this idea will go into the mind, be accepted, and create an addiction.

Every time my client reached into that can to use chewing tobacco, a suggestion was being made to the UN-conscious mind:  Addiction!  Addiction!  So, the unconscious mind agreed.  And created addiction.

Words have power.Ideas are power.  Words are power.  What I do at my office is help work new ideas into the mind so that we get to choose what we create in our world.  I’m very, very attuned to words and how they impact the mind, both consciously and UNconsciously.  This so-called warning label is not helpful to quit tobacco, quite the opposite instruction is being given to the mind.  And that’s not good.

If you need help to stop tobacco, or other “addictions,” there really is help.  Addictions can be anything, sugar, alcohol, gambling, spending, even negative thinking.  I help pull you out of existing patterns and create new ones.  I’m a Licensed Trainer of NLP® and I have tools to help.  Find out more:  http://www.mindworkshypnosis.net.
