Hypnosis For Marijuana Addiction
Marijuana is popularly called cannabis, pot, weed, dope, hash, grass, draw etc, it has many different names. After continued use over a long period of time marijuana can lead to addiction. Marijuana addiction often creeps up on people, it’s something that people often fall into and don’t even realise that they are addicted, because they don’t realise it’s possible to be addicted to cannabis.
Some people who are addicted to marijuana even need professional rehabilitation, in fact over 500,000 Americans go to rehab for marijuana addiction every year. Going to a rehab centre helps with round-the-clock monitoring and a professional understanding of your condition.
Hypnosis has become extremely popular lately as a complimentary option for those undergoing treatment for marijuana addiction. Hypnosis can be tried in two ways. You can go to a hypnotherapist practitioner, or you can buy a CD or mp3 that help you with self-hypnosis in your own home. They both work in the same way but seeing a therapist will cost you a lot more money.
The technique of hypnotherapy effects major changes in your habits by routing messages straight to the subconscious. Therefore, you develop a liking for certain habits and dislike for others. This helps you follow a certain pattern of behaviour without as much effort. Hypnosis cannot however, interfere with your ethical ideas. It’s recognised to be safe and cannot make you do something that you do not want to. It’s not a forum of magic Jedi mind control.
Whether you use self-hypnosis with a CD or visit a therapist, it works by putting you in a trance, this is just a state of deep relaxation. Messages are sent to your subconscious only after you are completely relaxed, with your subconscious alert to any suggestions. Music with certain frequencies to heighten and sustain your trance is also used. Sometimes you may fall asleep during a hypnosis session. After putting you through the trance and giving your subliminal messages, the therapist or CD will wake you up.
If you visit a hypnotherapist your sessions may be scheduled thrice a week. A CD for self-hypnosis can be used thrice in a day if you wish. Either way, to actually benefit from hypnosis to treat marijuana addiction you must remain regular with your sessions. Most hypnosis treatments last for a couple of months. A minimum of 60-day usage is recommended with CDs for self-hypnosis.
Marijuana withdrawal symptoms can range from physical tension and irritability to mood swings, depression and complete loss of appetite. Hypnosis can compliment any treatment for de-addiction and is helpful in most cases.
Hypnosis should always be used in conjunction with exercise, family support, commitment to give up the addiction and an effective support network. Hypnosis will often make the healing process more effective and speed up the results.
Success with hypnosis will vary depending on your susceptibility, some will go deeper into trance than others and are more susceptible to suggestion, but many will experience a significant effect. Obviously will power will still be required. A mp3 download or CD wont cost you much more than a bag of dope and can be used as many times as you like.
