Is it too late to stop smoking at 50? What’s the age limit for quitting smoking?

None!……… It’s never too late to quit smoking. 

Health benefits start immediately, at any age. 

A 50-year-old lady rang me to book in for a stop smoking session ………………………. for her father Frank, 84.

Frank stopped smoking immediately after one clinical hypnotherapy session with me. He bought all his rollies, ashtrays, ifs and butts, and bits and pieces for his session. And dumped them in my bin.

If you quit smoking before you turn 50, you’ll cut the risk of dying in the next 15 years in half, compared to those who keep smoking.

Some people try several times before giving up cigarettes for good.  If that’s you, don’t get discouraged. Instead, think about what led to your relapse, such as your emotions or the social, emotional, and physical environments you were in. 

And ask yourself these questions…….. 

  • How do you feel about your smoking?
  • What are your recent thoughts about quitting smoking? 
  • What do you know about smoking and your family’s health? 
  • What do you think it would be like to stop smoking? 
  • What are your concerns about quitting? 
  • What holds you back from trying to stop smoking? 
  • What do you imagine it would be like if you weren’t a smoker anymore? 
  • What do you think you would need to successfully stop smoking? 

Use your answers as your reasons for quitting

It may be to lower your chance of getting lung cancer, heart disease, or other health conditions and being around for your loved ones 

  • Or to look and feel younger 
  • It may be to protect your family from toxic second-hand smoke 
  • And to breathe easy going up the stairs, regaining your old fitness once again
  • It may be to taste and smell wonderful foods again, fully, exquisitely
  • And to Save all that wasted money, gone up in smoke, putting it to better use

Choose your reason/s …..  Are they strong enough to begin to outweigh the urge to smoke?
