Are you tired of standing in the rain and the cold in the kind of draughty, smelly places that are often reserved for smokers outside workplaces, pubs, clubs and restaurants? Do you want to feel richer, healthier and more relaxed? If so, you could be among the many people who want to get rid of the smoking habit.

Much has been written about smoking, including this article in The New Scientist. To put it in a nutshell, getting rid of smoking is undoubtedly one of the best things you can do for your own health, not to mention the people you share your life with. In fact, according to (Cancer Research UK), the children of people who smoke are three times more likely to smoke than the children of those who don’t.

The New Scientist has reported on a study covering more than 70,000 smokers/ex-smokers from America and Europe. It concluded that hypnosis is the most effective way of giving up smoking. The Which? Report has previously reported that of all the methods available for stopping smoking, hypnotherapy was the most successful, and the only one without cravings, irritability and weight gain.

The main reason a smoker will continue smoking despite the many reasons for giving up (Cancer Research UK) is because of subconscious impulses. Hypnotherapy deals directly with those subconscious impulses, often helping people transform their lives in less than two hours.

When you do, you can look forward to better health (mental as well as physical), longer life and more wealth.
