| | Hypnosis helped me quit
A well known behavioural hypnotist came to my city for a quit smoking seminar.
My aunt knows I have been trying to quit for years but just couldn't - so she bought me a ticket ($86.00) Stress was my main reason to keep smoking(going through a nasty divorce... still am) I'd quit for a week or two - while using NRT (patch/gum etc)... and would start up again as soon as someone around me smoked or if I had a couple of drinks, or a fight with a loved one etc.
Anyways, I went to this seminar thinking "yea right..." but left after the seminar never having another smoke!
I know hypnosis isn't for everyone but I hear it has a pretty high success rate if you're SURE you want to quit, and it's MUCH cheaper than Over the counter NRT's (in the long run)... and after the seminar, I never needed another nicotine patch or nicotine gum again.
It's been 3 months, I still have a slight craving now and then (like once a week) - but I find it easy to say "no thanks". This is coming from someone who has NO willpower whatsoever!
In turn, I find I'm drinking more water than eating (which was one big downside to quitting for me).
