More than 15% of Americans over the age of 18 are smokers. That means that roughly 36 million adults are smokers and half are living with smoking related medical issues. Smoking is the leading cause of cancer and a contributing factor to heart attacks, stokes, lung disease, vision issues and bone density reductions. It has also become so social unacceptable that being a smoker can do considerable damage to your professional reputation and job prospects as well as to your personal relationships.
Smoking is more than a bad habit. It is both a physical and a behavioral addiction. Smoking cessation therefore involves both managing the physical effects of nicotine withdrawals and reprogramming the triggers that have previously been met with a cigarette. Dr. Warren has been extremely successful in the use of hypnosis to "speak to the back of the mind" and create unconscious, alternative responses to the urge to smoke.
Through healthy workplace counseling, Dr. Warren helps corporations create more productive and healthy work environments for employees struggling with smoking addiction.
