A different way
to stop smoking
Giving up smoking doesn’t have to be hell. Forget willpower and withdrawal, this six-week Love Not Smoking programme uses scientifically-proven psychological techniques to help you quit for good AND claim back your passion for life.
The programme is based on principles designed by psychologists Professor Ben Fletcher and Professor Karen Pine, as described in their book Love Not Smoking, and is based on the latest scientific research into addiction, habit breaking and behavioural change.
After completing the diagnostic questions each person’s unique programme is created by our system. There is a two-week preparation phase by email, app and/or text to weaken the links between context and smoking habit, thus preparing the person for quitting.
After quitting the programme supports the person to continue to make lifestyle changes and avoid contexts that were associated with smoking. The new non-smoker is helped to discover a whole world of new opportunities, better relationships and to head off to lead a richer, fuller life without fear of relapse.
Why is it so hard to quit?
Smoking is a habit. It’s been hard-wired into your brain and it’s triggered by events. Things getting stressful? Reach for a cigarette. First thing in the morning? With your coffee? After sex? You may be addicted to nicotine, but your brain is addicted to these habit chains. If you can smash the habits, crush the cravings, and embrace new behaviours instead, you’ll quickly find that you love not smoking.
