Stop Smoking Hypnosis – How Does It Work?

Hypnosis is what happens when you “zone out” or in other words, when your conscious mind drifts off into a daydream while you still have awareness. Many people experience this very feeling when driving a car from Point A to Point B and at the same time, dreaming about being on their favourite beach with a cocktail in their hand. In this detached state, learning or change is much quicker as your unconscious mind absorbs and accepts new behaviours much quicker without the interference of the conscious mind.
