You are undoubtedly familiar with the fact that smoking leads to many horrible illnesses: lung cancer, heart disease, emphysema…the list goes on and on. But did you know that smoking tobacco has also been linked to hearing loss? It is important to Quit Smoking and prevent deafness.

Research Showing Smoking can Cause Deafness

Smokers are nearly 70% more likely than non-smokers to suffer hearing loss, according to a study including more than 3,000 people.

According to a study published in The Journal of American Medical Association in 1998, smoking has been linked to hearing loss in adults.

Smoking Affects Hearing in the Many Ways

1. Impairs the body’s ability to repair damaged blood vessels
2. Damages blood vessels that support the healthy functioning of the ear’s various systems
3. Impedes the repair of the hair cells or the sound receptors in the ear

The study found that about 30 to 35% of adults between 65 and 75 suffer from hearing loss and there is no coincidence that this population is from the generation in which smoking was most prevalent. Even if you yourself are not a smoker, your hearing can still be damaged; the study also found that people who either live with or spend significant amounts of time with smokers are twice as likely to suffer from some form of hearing loss.

So What can you do to Protect Your Hearing?

Quit smoking and quit being around people who smoke. If you find yourself struggling with a tobacco habit, you may be saying that quitting sounds fine and good in theory but in practice it is much harder-you want more specifics on how to help yourself quit smoking.

Hypnosis can Help You to Quit Smoking

One excellent method of smoking cessation is hypnotherapy. Hypnotherapy helps smokers to understand that smoking is first and foremost a habit and not an addiction; from there, smokers are able to use the aid of hypnosis to change old habits and thought processes and create newer, healthier ones. This is done by a kind of guided meditation in which a hypnotherapist helps you to enter a deep state of relaxation and then helps you to form new habits by way of suggestions in this relaxed state. It is the true art of mind over matter and one of the safest, most effective methods of smoking cessation around.

Is Smoking an Addiction?

Many people get caught up in believing that smoking is an addiction and you may be one of them. However, smoking is actually a psychosocial habit and creating new ways of perceiving the world and yourself can help you to break free of the chains of Big Tobacco. If you want a fresh, tobacco free start for your mind, body and soul, then take the time to look more closely at hypnosis smoking cessation.
