Quit Cigarettes in 60 Minutes!
A 'Green' Way to Stop Smoking- for Life!
By Anthea Hudson and Christina Barnes
Smoking is a very powerful addiction for many people, and can be very hard to stop. It is not only harmful to you and the people around you, but to the environment itself, with cigarette buts often liberally littering the landscape. These are unsightly, and can poison creatures who ingest them, and add toxic chemicals to land and waterways.
||I interviewed Christina Barnes, from Quit Cigarettes in 60 Minutes! about a safe, effective, fast method for quitting smoking, that uses no drugs, patches, replacement devices... nothing but the power of your own mind to heal you of your addiction... so nothing extra to be added to the environment.
Christina, tell us a bit about your business… what you do … who your typical clients are… the scope of what you might do.
I am an NLP practitioner and hypnotherapist, and apart from specialising in helping people to give up smoking, I also help people with phobias, performance anxiety, depression and other related issues.
How do you feel your business relates to your environmental interests and concerns.
Many smokers try other methods to give up smoking, things like patches, which all end up in our environment. Then of course, there are those horrible cigarette butts which have become become so common that they are almost part of the landscape!
Then there are the long term implications for smokers, which is the likelihood of developing cancer or other major illness. The cost to society, the environment and the individual, of being treated with chemicals is a long term issue which eventually will take its toll on our health system, the environment and of course, our families and friends.
When it comes to treatment for other issues, such as depression for example, generally I am able to help people get off anti-depressant drugs, or at least reduce the use of these. Many of these drugs are not broken down completely by our bodies, and end up in our waterways.
How do you feel your business can help people in a more environmentally friendly way than some treatments, or than remaining untreated?
Imagine being able to quit smoking without the use of chemicals, drugs, pills, patches, injections and without putting on weight, having withdrawal symptoms or being stressed. NLP and Hypnosis are clean, immediate and stress-free treatments.
What training have you undergone and what qualifications do you have?
I am a fully qualified and certified NLP Practitioner, Hypnotherapist, Time Line Therapy Practitioner, Life Coach and Quit Cigarettes in 60 minutes Specialist. I also have a Masters in Music Performance from the Queensland Conservatorium of Music.
What made you become interested in doing this kind of work?
My father was a smoker most of his life, and I watched him die of lung cancer. I have seen how terrible that can be.
But I have also seen how difficult smokers find it to break free, and how much control smoking has on their lives, financially, health-wise and also time wise. Many people don't look at how much smoking really cuts into their lives, at how much it impacts on all areas of their lives.
