We are all essentially creatures of habit. 

Good habits like the superheroes of the world serve us well bring us much support, happiness and progress. Along the way we can pick unhelpful habits too, which turn out to be detrimental, unwanted and like the villains from the movies – we wish to get rid of them!

Smoking is one of those interesting ones.

Yes its Cancer causing impact is widely publicised. Its additional impact is damaging the walls of arteries to the extent that blood does not circulate or reach the tissue.  One of my areas of interest is diabetes and adding smoking to the mix is a super deadly mix. 

So what can we do to change anything.

The first question always is…is a change desired? If change is not wanted then the likelihood of anything happening is pretty slim.

When we look at the issue in more detail asking questions like why someone started smoking in the first place or what do they now gain from smoking, there is always much more to it than meets the eye.

NLP has some really artful ways to help look at the finer components that make up this or any other habit. Using a variety of techniques NLP can help to rearrange or eliminate these components to get a different more desired outcome.

So if your habit loop is not working in your favour let’s discuss what we can explore to break it up.
