So, here you are again. Seeing out the old year, along with
broken promises and failed, good intentions.
You arrive, fresh with newly found conviction, after the
excesses of the Christmas period, at the New Yearís
an annual triumph of hope over reality!
Hope, that this time you will have the single mindedness to
succeed, where last time you failed. Iím not suggesting for a
moment that you do not want to succeed, Iím sure that your
desire to stop smoking is genuine, but hereís the reality,
a hope, a dream and whatís the point in having dreams if
not going to make them happen?
You may dream of winning the lottery and yes, you could win!
But itís down to chance and you have a better chance of flying
to the moon, than of winning the lottery.
Making a real change to your life? Well thatís a dream you
make happen! And you can start right here, right now.
The problem with New Year resolutions lies in the forward
planning. Moving towards a significant target date in your
life, to contemplate doing something that you know is going to
be a struggle, makes it even harder to live up to your own
Of course youíre not looking forward to it! What do you
As you begin to experience a steady build-up of tension,
up to the big day when youíre finally going to start putting
right everything thatís wrong with your life!
No pressure there then! Iím sure youíll feel ready to start on
In the meantime of course, you now have the perfect excuse to
behave badly, because it doesnít really matter if you let
yourself go over Christmas does it? You can do everything to
excess. It wonít really matter! After all, you deserve to have
one last binge before the deprivations of the coming year
If you believe that, then youíre delusionary. Youíre just
fooling yourself because it makes you feel better at the
moment. Itís the high, before the deep low that will
follow and damage your self-esteem, sabotaging your chance of
success even before you start.
Wake up and smell the coffee!!
Do you really want to stop smoking? Then do something about
Clear the house of all the things that you know will prevent
Do not put aside an emergency packet ďjust in caseĒ, thatís
just planning for failure!
No ďlast one for old times sakeĒ
Do it NOW Ė as you read this article.
Donít put it off until tomorrow, because tomorrow never comes!
How we think and feel about ourselves is often the difference
between happiness and success, or frustration and failure,
therefore success and real lasting changes, only comes from
changing the way we think. We are all products of our own
So, every thought we think has an impact on us. We respond to
our negative thoughts and to our positive thoughts. If you
a history of failing to live up to your own expectations, your
memories are loaded with negative programming.
No matter how much conscious effort you put into changing your
habits, your subconscious mind is flooding your body with
negative messages that have been ingrained for years.

smoking using the help of hypnotherapy DVDís.

embarrassed to admit to anyone that they have a problem. Now,

self-esteem, are benefiting from hypnotherapy treatment, which
can literally change peoples lives for the better.
Your life will improve if you begin to believe in yourself and
your abilities, you will feel respected, giving you that extra
boost to increase motivation, and your enthusiasm will
noticeably. Some people say it feels like magic because it is
easy to make powerful changes. Hypnotherapy simply allows you
access the resources you already have in your subconscious
Desire to make changes is good. Taking action to start
something is even better. Letís assume that youíve decided
right now, to start making the changes that you want. If you
have tried before and failed, you need a support structure put
into place as quickly as possible, to help you to maintain

goals. A hypnotherapy DVD programme for home use can help. You
