STOP SMOKING NLP ANCHORING SCRIPT
A hypnosis script for breaking smoking habits
This script is designed specifically to Stop the Smoking Habit. A script for smokers who say that it is just a habit, but one they cannot get rid of.
It is intended to be used where the smoker has stopped the habit for a time, and then fell back into the bad habits and started again.
It works because it uses the techniques of anchoring and visualisation. It links the smoker's inner strengths and personal beliefs to external triggers, so that when the trigger happens they are reminded of their own ability to stop.
The script uses three different anchoring strategies. One is a physical metaphor to anchor feelings of determination to squeezing their fist shut. One uses the idea of a Magic Word. This is associated to a visual metaphor and is used to remind them that they have the ability to succeed any time they feel temptation again. The third hyponotic technique anchors a colour to a belief. The script uses a post hypnotic suggestion that seeing the colour will constantly remind the smoker that they can succeed in stopping the habit.

|Identity||You have the ability to return to this state any time you want to...||D||Leading|
|Capability||and when you are in this state you can perform the most amazing things... with the most amazing strengths... because your mind is focussed||>|

|Capability||And you have the natural ability to use this special unique state...||D||Ambiguity|
|And as you are relaxing there now... breathing gently... you can become aware of your hands... a feeling in your hands... and your mind can select one hand or the other hand... allow your mind to decide... to pick one hand...||Dissociation|
|And while most of your body becomes more relaxed you will find that one hand begins to close, to clench into a fist... and then relax again... and as that hand relaxes... you go deeper and deeper inside...||Deepener|
|And as you go deeper and deeper inside... you become aware of something... you become aware of something rising up inside you... and you recognise that for what it is... a fierce determination to never [smoke] again... a feeling of stubborn resistance to [the idea of smoking again]||Reframe physical feeling to mental toughness|
|And once again... notice your hand closing... and notice the feeling associated with this... as that hand closes... your mind focuses on why you want to [ stop smoking], [the smell, the cost, the health, ... ]|
|And that makes you even more aware of what you get from not smoking... and as you think about that... that feeling of determination... of self-confidence... that you can beat this... that you can stop for ever... grows ever stronger...|
