There have been numerous clinical studies conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of hypnosis for smoking cessation. Here are a few key studies worth mentioning:
- A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) in 2008 examined the effectiveness of hypnosis as a smoking cessation method. The study found that smokers who received hypnosis treatment were more likely to be smoke-free at 6 months compared to those who tried to quit without hypnosis.
- Another study published in the International Journal of Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis in 2010 investigated the long-term effects of hypnosis for smoking cessation. The study followed participants for up to 3 years and found that hypnosis was effective in helping individuals quit smoking and maintain abstinence over an extended period.
- A meta-analysis published in the journal Addiction in 2014 reviewed 59 controlled trials on various smoking cessation methods, including hypnosis. The analysis found that hypnosis was significantly more effective than no treatment and various other interventions, including nicotine replacement therapy.
These studies provide evidence that hypnosis can be an effective approach for smoking cessation.
