Sometimes new clients come to see me because they want to quit smoking cigarettes and say "but I still want to smoke cigars". In most cases, they believe that smoking cigars is safer for their health than smoking cigarettes. And cigar smoking has continued to increase. Jiping Chen, MD, PhD, MPH and epidemiologist at the FDA Center for Tobacco Products in Silver Spring, MD noted that by 2013 cigar smoking had more than doubled in the US since 2000. He reported that in a large-scale analysis comparing blood and urine sample results from cigar smokers and nonsmokers, cigar smokers were found to have higher levels of a number of toxic substances in their blood and urine than nonsmokers. At least one potential cancer-causing agent found inthe samples was comparable to that found in cigarette smokers.
If you or a loved one has felt because you "only smoke cigars" that you were not at risk from the kinds of health dangers that cigarette smokers have, it's time to think again. Hypnosis can help you become a healthy nonsmoker and BE WELL.
