Why don't more people stop smoking?
Most smokers have been smoking cigarettes for a long, long time. Usually, they start in their teenage years. They have tried to quit smoking using various pills, patches and gums. None of these methods work because it's a habit that is difficult to overcome.
There is a social aspect of smoking that people don't want to give up. Go to any office building and there will be people outside smoking while on a break from work.
Smokers like a cigarette with their coffee or after a good meal. They "need" a cigarette when they are stressed. Even though cigarettes are shortening their lives, smokers smoke.

What is hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a natural and powerful state that allows suggestions to be made directly to your subconscious mind in order to make significant changes in your life. Although usually done by a professional hypnotist, you can hypnotize yourself, a process called self-hypnosis.
Hypnosis is often described as entering a focused and absorbed state of attention where you become more receptive to new ideas. It’s a natural process that feels similar to when you become absorbed in an activity, like driving down a highway or reading a good book or watching a movie.
Using hypnosis to stop smoking
People that try to quit using will power have a difficult time because will power is part of the conscious mind. The conscious mind holds very little data, so in a short time the thought of no longer smoking goes away.
Hypnosis works with the subconscious mind. The subconscious mind is very powerful and vast. A smoker’s subconscious mind has allowed the person to smoke, even though it’s harmful, because the person enjoyed smoking at a young age when it was cool and necessary to be accepted by friends. Using the Stop Smoking Hypnosis Protocol, the subconscious mind is reprogrammed to understand the dangers of cigarettes and the long-time smoker changes behaviors and becomes a non-smoker.
During the day of the session, the subject is required to not smoke any cigarettes prior to the session. They are told not to have any cigarettes on their person or in their car. They will leave the session as a non-smoker. We use a unique neurological process to address cravings the smoker is sure to encounter. The process eliminates the cravings prior to the hypnosis session where the subconscious mind will be reprogrammed to change behavior.
What is the success rate of hypnosis to stop smoking?
Some hypnotists boast a 95% success rate. I tend to wonder how much follow up is conducted with such a successful result. In my experience, most smokers that are unsuccessful do not return phone calls with their smoking status. If I were to assume non-responders were still smoking, I would state my success rate is at 70%, which I am pleased with. A total commitment to stop smoking is required to be successful.
