Why Your Client Still Can't Quit Smoking
Your client is desperately trying to quit smoking, but something’s not right. You’ve tried everything in the book, applied all of the teachings, but nothing’s helping and they keep lighting up.
They’re dreaming of a day where they’re free of cigarettes and smoke, and you’re dreaming of getting them there, but, somehow, the dots aren’t connecting… and time is running out.
You desperately want to help your client crush this habit for good, but you’re stumbling on things like:
→ Relying on old, dated techniques that don’t address their unique situation, leaving your work ineffective and unsuccessful
→ Knowing your client is ready to quit, but they're blocked and resistant because they're afraid to fully commit to the process, creating resistance that is hard to overcome.
→ Getting results that last a couple of days, and then your client finds that cigarette in their hand again and stops believing they can quit and stops believing in you.
What will happen if you don’t help your client quit smoking?
This bad habit can have serious effects on your client's physical and mental health. Smoking uncontrollably can harm their family, their wallet, their time, and their focus. And worst of all, it could lead to disease and even a slow, painful death.
And not helping your client can have serious repercussions for your practice:
→ Your client will be too frustrated and move on to another practitioner for help.
→ Failing will tarnish your practice, and you’ll lose out on referrals and future clients.
→ You’ll feel like you failed your client, that your work isn’t valuable, and you may lose confidence in your abilities.
Your client came to you for a solution, but you haven't been able to help them.
