Ending cannabis (marijuana-weed-pot-etc) addiction

You can use hypnotherapy to help you get rid of your cannabis habit quickly and painlessly

There is another way to describe cannabis addiction: a compulsion, a craving. Hypnotherapy and NLP can help by addressing the compulsion directly, removing the craving. Quickly. We also help you conquer any fears you may have about life without cannabis. And can show you how to build a forceful idea of life after marijuana. An idea of how good it can feel to be free, of telling yourself you have finally done the job, of being able to see more clearly now the smoke has cleared.

Making an end of a long-term habit

Use of marijuana in whatever form (solid, resin, weed etc) can last for tens of years, and the intake often increases as the body adjusts to the dose. For many of our clients it became a way of life. Most people seeking help have reached a point where they can no longer bear being so reliant on the substance. Many studies agree that cannabis use does not result in physical dependency; people may become psychologically dependent. The fact that we are dealing with psychological dependency is what makes hypnotherapy/NLP so appropriate a treatment.

An effective way to stop

It is possible to end the habit quickly and painlessly. A method suitable for you is required. Our approach adapts to suit the individual, so that we cover all eventualities. The cannabis habit is similar to the tobacco habit. In both cases there are many ways of helping someone stop. It is not unusual for someone to deal with both habits at the same time.

We use a mix of neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) and hypnotherapy. After an initial study of how your thoughts about marijuana produce the craving, we use NLP to enable you to learn how to control your own mind, so that events that used to trigger thoughts about cannabis no longer do so. Hypnotherapy is used to reorganise things for you at an unconscious level.

Life after the craving is gone

People are dissimilar, and respond in different ways. Some find that the craving for marijuana is gone, and simply stop taking the drug at once, forever. Some lose the craving but a few days later it returns, for which they need help as they control and overcome it. Some find that the craving does not disappear entirely, but has lost its edge; they find that they can learn to deal with it, they avoid cannabis and it gradually wears away.

Symptoms of cannabis addiction can include:

Increased tolerance.

Greater use than intended.

Unsuccessful efforts to cut down or control use.

A great deal of time spent in using the drug.

A reduction in social, occupational or recreational activities.

Continued use despite knowing it will cause significant problems.

Signposts to a solution

How long will it take me to stop this addiction?

By using this combination of NLP and hypnotherapy, most people need only two or three one-hour sessions.
