Does hypnosis work to quit smoking or is it just a joke?

Has anyone had any success with hypnosis?

it hasn't helped some people quit. I justknow for me before I quit, I wanted an easy way out.........a magic pill, some solution to the "problem" I'd created for my body. What I had to do was finaly admit I was an addict and do the sweat and time it takes to set free. It's hard. Hardest thing I have ever done. But it IS doable!!! I just had to make a choice and NEVER go back on that choice....one day at a time.......until one day.......the pain of quitting had faded and wasn't coming back every so often to haunt me anymore and I knew I was free. Are you wanting to quit smoking or have you already quit?

It worked wonderfully well... until a year and a half later, when one of those big, life-kicks-you-in-the-teeth moments came along, and he started smoking again.

The hypnosis seemed to help him a very great deal. He didn't really believe it did anything, but claimed he was only not smoking so he wouldn't have wasted the $50 he paid for the session. But I think there was much more to it than that...for him anyway.

He has since quit again, cold turkey, and has been smoke free for three years. Or is it four? I should know, but I don't.

I don't think hypnosis is the cure all, but I do think it's a good tool in the tool box, and can help with the process. I believe that support is the real key, though.

It is really good to "see" you, too!

Late at night, my thoughts turn to Blairsville.......just like in the good old bad old days.

I hope you are well!
