Middle aged men who smoke, have high blood pressure and raised cholesterol levels may shorten their lives by up to 15 years.
Research published by the British Medical Journal showed improvements in blood pressure and cholesterol levels proportionate with giving up smoking. The study of 19,000 men aged between 40 and 69 showed their average levels of blood pressure and cholesterol fell by two-thirds when two thirds of those studied gave up smoking.
Those men who smoked and had high blood pressure and raised cholesterol at the age of 50, had their life expectancy cut by ten years compared with men who had none of those risk factors. When taking into account other risk factors such as diabetes and employment grade, the research showed the 5 per cent of men with lowest scores had their life expectancy cut by 15 years.
The research suggested the government should fund more activities that promote improved heart health to increase life expectancy. . Smoking cuts years off your life, but by stopping smoking quickly and easily with hypnotherapy you can start to look and feel great as a non smoker.

Mark Biggs had been a heavy smoker for 10 years, often lighting up to 30 cigarettes a day. Today, the 37-year-old human resources director is smoke-free and has been so for the past five years after undergoing two sessions of hypnotherapy. “I was shocked with the result. The first few weeks were tough. But, over a period of time, I had no problem being in the same room with smokers,” Biggs said.
Beryl Comar, a Dubai-based hypnotherapist, has the solution to kicking this bad habit with one or two hypnotic sessions. “It’s all in the words,” she said. Comar is a graduate of economics, geography and sociology, and also holds masters degrees in education and applied linguistics.
However, Biggs did not have a smooth ride. Eighteen months after quitting smoking, he found himself lighting a cigarette again. “I immediately contacted Comar. I haven’t had another recurrence in the past five years after that,” he said. Comar said the craving for nicotine is fuelled by a need for belonging. This can be remedied through hypnotherapy.
“The most important factor to achieve anything is a strong resolve, a complete dedication. It’s the same with hypnosis. If you are not certain about what you want to achieve, you might as well not go in for it,” she said. She said there are two areas of information storage and thought processes in the mind: our conscious mind and the subconscious. Hypnotherapy targets the subconscious mind. “There are two methods to get into one’s subconscious – through complete relaxation or through shock. The person will have complete control of his desires. So, any suggestions that he is not open to may be discarded by him.
