Quit Smoking in Under 10 Minutes

A process to help you quit smoking. This quit smoking process is interactive. The audio of this video can be found on Amazon MP3 Downloads, iTunes and other Music Downloads sites as ‘Quit Smoking Process’, as can a range of other self help, training and relaxation Mp3’s.

This process is a rapid process to help you to quit smoking, it is less than ten minutes long and for many people just listening to this once for less than ten minutes will be enough to help you stop smoking. For others because it is interactive they may need to listen a few times to get an idea of the process they are following before successfully quitting smoking. And some people may benefit from listening a few times to quit smoking, and may need to listen a few times in the future.

People often have relapses, this is normal and OK, the important thing is how do you respond to relapses. If it is to instantly think ‘that’s it, I am a smoker again now’ then you will probably go back to smoking rather than seeing it as an isolated incident. It is normal that life throws you into situations where you respond with an old pattern that you had spent years using, rather than responding with the new pattern you now have. When this happens it is best to chalk it up as a one-off incident and start the next day a non-smoker again, and look at what led to that one-off situation, whether it was unusually stressful, an unexpected event that you hadn’t previously planned for, or some other reason. Once you identify this you can think about what you will do in the future differently if that type of event happens again to ensure you respond in a new way that helps you remain a non-smoker, rather than drifting back to responding in the old way.

Please share your comments and experiences below, it is always nice to get feedback on when you quit smoking and how long you have been a non-smoker for, and how you moved passed any blips or bumps in the road to continue as a non-smoker. Please share you story below, and share this page with others that also may be interested in quitting smoking.

Help With Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

OCD is often linked to ritualism and addiction. It is usually to do with anxiety or insecurity (see anxiety section). The behaviour is often very ritualistic and if it is not carried out or the obsessive thought is fought against then it can cause feelings of anxiousness or uncomfortableness. Normally people with OCD have one or more of their basic needs not being met. When these get met it will help the OCD lift.

The most common compulsions in adults are:

  • Thoughts of contamination (which can lead to obsessive washing or cleaning)
  • Doubt (E.g. Whether you have locked doors or turned off switches)
  • Thoughts of having physical symptoms
  • Symmetry (straightening pictures, lining pens up on a desk
  • Aggressive thoughts

Compulsions are usually carried out to prevent or reduce anxiety or distress. Often it is believed the compulsive behaviour will prevent something unwanted occurring. OCD affects not just the person carrying out the behaviour but also those around them. When a compulsion is carried out the person enters a trance as the compulsion takes control. This trance can be triggered by specific situations, thoughts, feelings or times of the day or by a heightened level of tiredness.

To help remove the compulsion, clients can imagine watching a screen with someone calmly NOT carrying out the compulsive behaviour. Notice what they look like, how relaxed they appear, how they know that person is relaxed. Notice how well everything goes before during and after they hadn’t carried out the compulsive behaviour. Notice what else is better for them as they continue to behave differently. Then take a few moments to relax deeply and gently into that person in the screen. Seeing through their eyes, hearing what they would hear. ‘Try on’ their behaviour and beliefs. ‘Pretend’ what it is like to be them. Enjoy the feelings. Notice how much calmer they feel. Notice the benefits of being this way. Go to some old familiar situations where they had carried out the compulsive behaviour and notice the difference in how they respond to those situations as this person. Notice how calm they feel, how unbullied they feel to be going through the situation being the one in control, calm and relaxed. Then imagine being this person in some future situations when they would expect to have carried out that old compulsive behaviour. Notice how pleasurable it is to respond in this more desirable way. Tell the client to practice this regularly. If occasionally they still get the old compulsive feeling which can happen for a short while as they adjust to not doing that old behaviour suggest they could do this experiment – each time they feel the need to carry out the compulsion treble it. E.g., if they have to check everything is locked 3 times before they leave the house then check it 9 times. Tell them to stick to this whenever they feel the need to carry out the compulsive behaviour. This won’t be appropriate for all cases but if you can set a task that will make the compulsion a chore or change it in some way it is more likely to lead to the compulsion stopping.

Transform the Lives of Those With PTSD, Trauma & Phobias

One of the main issues client’s present with are phobias and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Even clients who present with other conditions frequently have PTSD underlying the condition making it much more difficult to treat. Many clients who present with anxiety, anger, depression, self-esteem and confidence issues and some relationship issues often have some traumatic experience, or a series of traumatic experiences at the heart of the problem and without tackling this root cause the presenting problem can seem to stubbornly hang around. Often the presenting problem is the client’s own unconsciously attempted solution to the real problem.

You can learn to treat phobias, trauma and PTSD here for just $14.99 USD (usual RRP $149.99) in my new Treating PTSD, Trauma and Phobias With The Rewind Technique eCourse.

I remember working with a client who used to have angry outbursts at their husband. She didn’t know why she got so angry with him and did domestic abuse towards him. During our first session she revealed that as a teen she had been raped. She thought she had moved on from it, she could talk about it fine, she was aware that it was part of her history, but because she felt like she had moved on she hadn’t made the connection with her current situation. What led us to discover the connection was analysing what it was in the relationship which made her angry. It was specific tones of voice, specific ways she was touched and specific words and phrases. All of these were aspects of the traumatic experience from when she was a teenager. Once we de-traumatised the rape incident her anger stopped. The anger was a solution, it was protecting her on a primal level from being raped. If anything which pattern matched to that incident occurred it made her become angry so that she would fight to prevent coming to harm, even though now there was no harm going to happen, it was just her husband who she loved being loving.

It is very common for people with phobias – most commonly of spiders, flying (especially when someone is about to go on holiday), and dentists, to come for psychological therapy, but many therapists don’t recognise the traumatic roots of other stuck clients problems.

There is a fast and effective way of treating phobias trauma and PTSD and that is to use the Rewind Technique (you can access my Treating PTSD, Trauma & Phobias With The Rewind Technique course for just $14.99 USD (or equivalent price in other currencies plus any taxes) here – Usual RRP $149.99 USD).

The Rewind Technique is a rapid way of breaking the trauma pattern relinquishing its hold over the client. It is common for the Rewind Technique to work in 1-3 sessions. When treating phobias this means someone who perhaps has restricted an aspect of their life for years – like has always wanted to holiday abroad but has never been able to fly, or may have missed opportunities for this reason, or may have poor dental hygiene due to a fear of dentists, or may have restricted their life due to being scared to leave their own home – can suddenly experience freedom in as little as a single session, like the elderly lady I helped who had been involved in three accidents on the road and when out walking and had developed a fear of leaving her home. She hadn’t left her home for over thirty years and yet within 30 minutes we were both sat on the beach eating ice-cream discussing how life will be different now she can leave her home. This 30 minutes was life-changing for her. All I did was use the Rewind Technique with her, which you can learn to do here.

Some people have problems which seem quite complex, like a teen I worked with who had about 20 phobias, had anger problems at home, at school and when out with friends, had been seen by a psychiatrist for many years without any improvement in his behaviour, anger and anxiety or phobias and whose education was suffering due to poor behaviour and lack of attendance at school. In a single conversation with his mother I worked out that all of his issues stemmed from one school experience, I met with her son for less than 30 minutes, used the Rewind Technique on the incident from when he was in primary school and all of his phobias went away, his anxiety and anger problems went away, his school attendance improved, he became a happier and calmer teen and started doing well. This was a transformative moment for that teen and his mother and all it took was a single session with the Rewind Technique – which you can learn here for $14.99 USD.

An advantage of the Rewind Technique is that you don’t have to know any details. As long as the client knows what they are working on you don’t need to know. You can have a codeword so that you can say something and they will understand what you are referring to, but you don’t need to know what you are referring to. For example, I have worked a lot with teens and children who were physically, emotionally and sexually abused. There was a child who wouldn’t go in the bathroom, wouldn’t have a bath or shower. He was about ten years old and in a care home. I knew his background and why he was in care. Talking about sexual experiences with a stranger is uncomfortable for anyone, being a child and talking about them is even more uncomfortable. The child would get angry if you tried to get him to shower or bathe, he was getting bullied by other children in the care home for smelling and he would get angry if people tried to talk about what happened to him or tried to get him to talk about what happened to him. I used the Rewind Technique with him over about a 30 minute period. I told him he didn’t have to tell me anything about whatever has happened to him, he didn’t have to talk about it, I wasn’t going to ask him to tell me anything about it. I just asked him to give me a codeword for whatever it was that had happened that was making him angry. He said ‘bathroom incident’. I then did the Rewind Technique just referring to what we were working on as ‘the bathroom incident’. I didn’t ask him for any details about the incident, what the incident was, what happened, when, how often, how he felt about it. I just helped him gain freedom from what had happened. Within less than 30 minutes he was comfortable going into the bathroom and having a bath or shower. This meant he no longer got bullied in the home for smelling, his anger significantly reduced (he no longer got angry in relation to the bathroom or what happened to him) and his behaviour improved.

The Rewind Technique is an incredible technique for every psychological therapist’s toolbox. You can learn the Rewind Technique for just $14.99 USD here. (Usual RRP $149.99 USD).
