If you can be hypnotized, it will work.
Some report that it works for a short time and has to be repeated. That can be included in the cost of the initial session.
You might try patches, gum or inhalers instead.
You might fail again, but keep trying.
Statistics say that quitters failed many time before they finally succeeded.
I, myself, quit last Labor Day after many attempts in the past.
I have not cheated even once this time.
238 days and counting.
Sometimes the desire is quite strong (and they tell me it never goes away), but you just have to resist.
Keep quitting! One day you'll make it!
After ONE visit to a Psychaiatrist who used Hypnosis I quit smoking for 26 years.
All I remember is saying, as I put out a cigarette, "This is my last cigarette".
Savings: Well over $25,000.00 in cigarette costs alone. No funeral expenses yet... grin
Dr. William Wheat, NYC, 1970, Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Sadly Dr. Wheat passed away and I started smoking again. Looking for a Psy w/hypnotheraphy experience in Palm Springs area.
Not sure if a licenced 'Hypnotherapist' would be as successful; intend to visit a Psychaiatrist... the 'New School', aka NLP, aka Neuro-Linguistic-Programming seems prominent in the behavior modification arena. Check Google!
