Did you know that the latest research reveals that smoking may actually cause mental health problems? Professionals used to believe this was the other way round – in other words, if you were suffering from stress, depression or even something more serious, this could encourage you to smoke. However, researchers from King’s College London have found that high rates of smoking among those with mental illness are present before the illness starts. So it’s possible that smoking could be one of the factors triggering mental illness. Luckily, hypnotherapy can help you stop smoking as well as enabling you to relax, be peaceful and avoid so much of the stress and disturbance of modern life.
