Stop Smoking: Tommy

I'd been a 2 to 3 pack a day a smoker for the last 42 years and I've now been completely tobacco free for six weeks. I've tried to stop smoking in the past with cold turkey and I could never make it more than a week. Something would just set me off or I'd have nothing to do and all of a sudden I would start craving that cigarette and fall right back into it.

I felt out of control and always thought about when I could have another cigarette and where I'd be able to do it. At certain places on the job, I wasn't allowed to smoke and I found myself worrying about how long it would be before I could get my next cigarette. I felt chained to smoking. I would just stop everything and do it because I needed it.

I used hypnosis in the past and it worked for me, so I'd been looking for somebody to help me quit smoking and my friend Erika Jean said that A New Day Hypnosis was working really well for her, so I decided to set up an appointment with Laura. I noticed that I was breathing better and I wasn't feeling strong cravings. I wasn't arguing about things and things didn't seem to bother me. I could smell better, I could taste better, and I had more endurance.

I feel more in control now. I'm not looking for time to smoke; things just keep going and I roll with it. Hypnosis has eliminated urges, cravings, and the desire for the cigarette. I feel more confident because I know that I have the power to do it with a little bit of help. I keep reinforcing things until they're out of my system for good.

I don't have to worry about the stress of the cravings and I couldn't have done that without Laura's help. I would recommend A New Day Hypnosis to anyone who wants help getting anything done in their lives because she makes it sound easy and there's lots of reinforcement. I can go on and do what I need to do without worrying about cigarettes. I don't need them anymore. I can be in all sorts of situations and even be around smokers without thinking about it. After a long day, I'll realize that I did it all without wanting to smoke and that feels really good. I'm confident that I'm a nonsmoker permanently because the desire to smoke is just gone and it's one thing that I don't have to think about it anymore.
