In our pop-a-pill society we swallow potent drugs with potential serious side-effects to stop smoking – but there are safer and better alternatives.

Two well know drugs prescribe by physicians to help their patients quit smoking are Zyban and Chantix. Zyban came out of the research performed on Wellbutrin, an anti-depressant drug, when it was accidentally discovered it lessened the cravings to smoke in testing on subjects. Zyban has been on the market longer than Chantix.

Zyban is not recommended if you’re already taking anti-depressants or have suffered an allergic reaction to Zyban already, or have seizure disorders. Zyban is not considered a complete stop smoking solution. For one thing, it’s recommended only for short periods, usually up to seven weeks. And so its use to you in a quit smoking program is limited and you should have in place a longer term plan to prepare for life after Zyban.

Chantix was supposed to be the new wonder smoking cessation drug. But of late it’s had some scary stories connected with its use. These include suicidal tendencies and depression, and more common side effects of nausea, headache, and difficulty sleeping and abnormal dreams. The FDA continues to investigate.

The fact is there are other alternatives to taking prescription drugs to quit smoking with no side-effects, and these have proven to be every bit as effective, and in many instances more effective.

One of these alternatives is hypnosis. Stop smoking using hypnosis has been around a long time, but tends to be used as a last resort for smokers looking to quit. So hypnotists tend to get the most difficult cases. But on the plus side these same people are usually highly motivated to quit.

Using hypnosis to stop smoking is a natural way to quit and if you’re ever had hypnosis sessions then you know how relaxing it is as well.

Two cons of a private hypnosis sessions for some people is price – although this tends to be a false economy concern – and the fact you have to make an appointment and keep it.

So the industry of self-hypnosis stop smoking CDs and even quit smoking hypnosis download products have sprung up in the last few years. These are a less expensive alternative to private hypnosis sessions and obviously you can listen to them at your own convenience.
