"Thank you it's been 12 months, 16 days and 3 hrs since my last cigarette... thanks so much."

Most smokers have tried to quit at some point in their lives and some have done well enough - lasting a few hours, days, weeks, months and some, even a few years. I was one of those people- I had been a smoker for 18 years with a few breaks in between, some short and some long. I had tried patches, tablets and one time I even tried chewing the nicotene replacement gum which ended up in the bin after about 5 chews! Like most smokers I was at a point where I just wanted to be done with this old and out-dated habit. I felt that this habit was starting to take my time, health and money. I was like most smokers and thought that smoking was my vice and I could probably even come close to saying that I felt as though cigarettes would always be a part of my life. Until I was hypnotised to stop smoking and I can honestly say "you could not pay me to put another cigarette in my mouth". I have no will or desire to ever smoke again and it is almost as though it was never a part of my life.
"I finally feel free of this old habit!"
I find that this experience is what helps me to be very effective when helping others to quit smoking. Because I know how you feel. I also know what is required and how Hypnosis can help you to quit. I have helped hundreds of people to quit smoking in an easy and effective way.
How Does it work?
Hypnosis can be described as an altered state of consciousness and although you will still have awareness, you will feel very relaxed. While you are in this relaxed state of hypnosis, your subconscious mind becomes more receptive to the very positive suggestions towards you finally quitting smoking.
I have tried quitting before and am unsure if this will work?
You might be wondering why you were not successful quitting with pure will-power alone and why you struggled in the past, even when using perscribed drugs or patches. This is because you are consciously wanting to quit smoking, but you have not dealt with the underlying reasons on the subconscious level - that has been keeping you smoking for so many years. This is why hypnosis is so effective- it deals with the subconscious. RENEE ERIKSEN - HYPNOTHERAPIST uses hypnosis to help you create a balance within your mind- both consciously and subconsciously.
I have seen people get hypnotized on stage or on movies and I am afraid that I might say or do something that is not of my moral values and beliefs, while under Hypnosis?
We only act in your best interests- to strive to help you reach your goals in life. There is nothing to worry about. Hypnotherapy has been proven to be safe and effective. You will still have full awareness and you can come out of hypnosis if you feel uncomfortable. The examples of stage and movie hypnosis are made for entertainment and the people in the shows are able to stop at any point, if they feel the suggestions are against their morals and values. Unfortunately most peoples exposure to Hypnosis is either what they see on tellevision or via stage shows. These forms of Hypnosis are for entertainment and different to how Hypnosis is used in therapy.
