Does Hypnosis Work?
"As a former smoker, I know how difficult it is to quit smoking. If you are motivated, Hypnosis is a very effective method to help you quit."

"Thank you for helping me kick the smoking habit. The reinforcement CD's helped me through a few tough times."
Ralph - Carrollton, TX
It is really amazing to me. I was so excited the other day while driving at work on the realization that I'm a non-smoker that I had to scream in delight. Too cool. Keep up the great work you're doing for people. Thank you again so much! I didn't think that I would ever be able to pull this off and you have made it possible for me. I can't tell you how much that means. Sincerely,
Kim - Frisco, TX

She is still a non-smoker and is very happy about it. She said her skin is looking much better already. She is listening to your CD and doing the tapping routine when she feels stressed. It seems to be doing the trick. Thanks so much for helping her, I really appreciate it.

Thanks to Chantix, Quitting Smoking May Be Hazardous, Too
Source: Wall Street Journal (sub req'd), May 29, 2008
The pharmaceutical company Pfizer "is preparing an advertising and public-relations campaign to counter concerns about its antismoking drug Chantix, once trumpeted as a potential billion-dollar- a-year blockbuster. " So far, Pfizer has "run ads in five major newspapers in which its medical director explains Chantix's risk-benefit balance." The drug company will soon "start hosting round-table discussions on Chantix for members of the media." The Pfizer campaign comes after an independent study linked Chantix "to 988 serious side effects in the last quarter of 2007." According to Senator Charles Grassley, who has asked the U.S. Food and Drug Administration about the drug's safety, Chantix has had "more reports of serious adverse events in this country than any other prescription drug." Some of the side effects reported for Chantix aren't currently listed in the drug's warnings. The Institute for Safe Medication Practices, which conducted the Chantix study, receives drug company funding, but not from Pfizer, according to the Center for Science in the Public Interest.

10 Tips on How to Quit Smoking
by Darren Hiller, CH

1. Believe you can quit. Studies have shown that belief that you can quite is the most important trait in successful quitters.
2. You must be motivated. Ask yourself on a scale of 1 Ė 10 (Ten being the most) how motivated you are? If you are not at least an 7, you are not ready. If you are not quite ready, write a list of the reasons you want to quit, and put it on a bulletin board. Also, write down all the health risks involved with from smoking (Smoking-related diseases claim an estimated 430,700 American lives each year, cigarette smoke contains over 4,800 chemicals, 69 of which are known to cause cancer, about 8.6 million people in the U.S. have at least one serious illness caused by smoking.)

3. Create a Plan. Choose an date and write it down on your calendar. It is helpful if the date you choose is a special day, like a birthday or anniversary. Each day before your Quit Date, write in your calendar (__ days till I quit smoking), mentally prepare yourself that you will be quitting on that day. Like many thousands before you, choose a safe and natural method to quit smoking. Hypnosis is the most effective method according to MedScape Medical News. Plan to have water, gum, and healthy foods to offset your smoking triggers. Find a support group, friend, or a quit buddy who you can share your experience with.
4. Work with a Certified Hypnotist on the day of your Quit Date. Show up for your appointment. Throw away all your cigarettes, ashtrays, any other related paraphernalia. Listen to your reinforcement CD at least once day for a few weeks. Hypnosis will help you with your triggers, and give you tools to help you reinforce your decision to quit.
5. Make a list of all your triggers. I smoked when I felt, bored, stressed, with coffee, after a meal, in my car etc.. Make a second list of all the activities you will do instead of smoking. Healthy dis-tractors like reading a book, going for a walk, working in your garden, taking a deep breath, chewing gum, lifting weights, riding a bike, listening to music, drinking water.
6. Use Daily Affirmation and place in on your fridge, mirror, or at your desk. Say them to yourself 10 times each morning, afternoon, and evening. I am Happy, Healthy, and smoke-free, Everyday I choose to breathe fresh air into my lungs. Today I am a proud and healthy non-smoker.
7. Tell a Spouse, Friend, or co-worker that will hold you accountable If you are held accountable by someone else it may help you to quit. Signing a contract, may make it more official. Find a support group locally or online.
