Quote    "I don't know how you did it but I have just stopped smoking and snacking...."


Quote    "This is to thank you again:  I notice that I just don't even think about smoking..."                                                                                                                        

Quote "I came to see you on 9th January and I have to admit I was a little skeptical that a single session would stop me smoking after 18 years. Well it did, I haven't smoked since, feel like a new person and I think it's fantastic.... The best hour and a half I've ever spent and I can't thank you enough for helping me."                                                     

According to an article in the New Scientist, "Hypnosis is the most effective way of giving up           smoking, according to the largest ever scientific comparison of ways of breaking the habit.             Willpower, it turns out, counts for very little". (Vol 136 issue 1845 31 October 92, page 6)


Smoking a cigarette shortens your life by 6 minutes. Twenty cigarettes per day means that your life is shortened by almost 3 days for each month that you smoke.

Twenty cigarettes per day costs per month over £200.

Start planning now what to do with the rest of your life and what to spend that money on.

Stop Smoking background;

Many smokers believe, or are led to believe, that they are addicted to tobacco products. They may be surprised to learn that of all the scientific studies carried out on the subject of this supposed addiction, a surprising number are ambivalent on the matter.

It is eye-opening to compare the behaviour of those who take substances that are accepted to create a chemical, body-dependant addiction and smokers. A true addict simply has to take the substance they are addicted to and make sure that they take the correct amount of that substance or they suffer serious side effects. These side effects may include nausea, heart palpitations, hallucinations, vomiting and lapsing into a coma. On the other hand, if a smoker is unable to smoke, perhaps due to a stay in hospital, a long plane journey or simply having a bad cold or sore throat, they may become a little grumpy or short tempered, but suffer none of the previously-mentioned side effects. If a smoker who usually smokers 30 cigarettes a day for some reason only smokes 20, they do not have to 'make-up' the amount of tobacco they did not take the next day whilst a true addict simply has to ingest the 'correct' amount of the substance that they are addicted to.

Those smoking-cessation methods that treat smoking as an addiction (patches, gum etc) have a very low success rate, acknowledged to be around 23%. The makers of the drug Zyban state that the drug is only effective if it is taken in conjunction with 'psychological intervention'.

Hypnotherapy is the most effective form of psychological intervention. In the vast majority of cases, provided a smoker truly wants to quit smoking, a single session (taking around a total time of one and a half hours) is effective.
