Will power, reasoning and logic all take place in the conscious mind. However, the conscious mind makes up only 10-12% of our mind power.
The unconscious mind makes up the other 88-90%.
The Unconscious Mind...
"In evolutionary terms, the conscious mind is a recently developed luxury, while the unconscious, that which scans the environment for threats and opportunities, is a necessity.....Your conscious mind is only able to process approximately fifty bits of information a second, whereas your unconscious mind processes approximately eleven million bits per second. So the conscious mind is constantly making rationalizations to explain actions that the unconscious already performed."
From the Genie in Your Genes by Dawson Church, PhD.
Our habits are often due to "automatic behaviors" triggered by old associations stored in our unconscious mind. Trying to modify these behaviors through will power alone can be extremely difficult. Hypnosis, imagery and NLP allow us access to the unconscious so that we can change associations to create new "automatic behaviors" that are in line with our goals.
Reprogramming your unconscious script gives you a huge advantage toward attaining your goals.

Smoking is an addiction to nicotine. However, nicotine is not the main issue. Nicotine is out of our circulatory system within 48-72 hours. It is harder to kick the "habit" of smoking, which consists of the associations and triggers that we develop connected with smoking. Also, for many, cigarette smoking has become a coping mechanism for dealing with stress. You can replace the associations, desensitize the triggers and learn more productive ways to deal with stress and the urge to smoke.
