My name is Joseph Giove. I’m a biomedical engineer and a clinical hypnotist. I’ve helped thousands of people stop smoking over the last twenty five years. I created this video series to help you become free of the habit an addiction of smoking cigarettes.
“I am a closet smoker. How do I quit?” I am seeing more and more closet smokers as time goes by and there is a very good reason for that. Smoking is becoming less and less socially acceptable. Further, many people are closet smokers because they are hiding it from their spouses, their children or their parents. Closet smoking creates its own unique challenges. Probably one of the most significant one is that sneaking away to have a cigarette feels somewhat rebellious, which is why many people started smoking in the first place when they were children.
It is also a way to get away. If you have a family you have a busy life, and sneaking away for a few minutes on your own can be a real nice get away…and then the getaway then becomes associated with smoking. That is a very dangerous combination. You still need to be able to get away. You still need to be able to take breaks. Just do it in a constructive way. And if you have that rebellious spirit then find some other way to get out of the box.
A very important part of quitting smoking is to honor that nature, that creative, rebellious part of you that needs to get away and take a break from the stresses of life. On the other hand many people who are closet smokers just hate it because of the very reasons I just mentioned. In either case the way to break free is to listen to every video in this series, in the order I have numbered them. Make your decision, address both the habit and the addiction and just do it.
