There are many versions of what a great life constituents, for some it's about things, others it's experiences and for others it's family or career.
But one thing all people agree on, at least to some is that having good health is an important part of living a better life.
A young person will give it some importance, an older person will rate good health highly, and a sick person of any age will usually give health a number one priority.
The great news is that even in spite of possible genetic issues, is that we have a huge capacity to create our own good health.
Despite being married to a doctor my advice to you is do not rely on doctors to make you healthy. Doctors are great when you are sick, but they can not stop you from getting sick. That is your job!
You decide what food you eat.
You decide what drinks you consume.
You decide exactly how active you are.
You decide how much rest and relaxation time you give yourself. The exception is when you have young children, sorry can not help with that
You decide if you take drugs.
And you decide if you smoke!
So here's the problem, you have been conditioned to believe that you are a nicotine addict, you have bought into a huge con that quitting smoking is really difficult. Because of this so called knowledge about quitting smoking, when you try to quit, and you start to feel a craving, then you throw in the towel and light up.
Some of you may hold out longer than others, but many will fail, because the message in the unconscious mind is that it's going to get worse, in fact so bad that you will not be able to manage your life unless you smoke.
But I'm sure you already know that no one has ever died from not smoking, your head will not explode, you will not fall in a heap drooling and shaking on the ground in the foetal position.
The worse thing that happens is you might get a bit angry, have a headache, feel some weird sensations somewhere in your body. That's it, that's the lot, and guess what, it will not last long.
You may think I'm making light of the quitting symptoms. But actually, what I describe is the worst case scenario. For most people who quit using hypnosis the discomfort is somewhere between none and mild, and even the rare people who do experience a stronger reaction, it soon passes leaving them free from cigarettes for life.
