I'd been smoking a pack a day for sixteen years. I felt out of control. I didn't like being dependent on cigarettes. It ran my life and I couldn't just put them down. I used Chantix for a month and a half, but I was taking Chantix and still smoking. I used the patch for seven days and I would take it off to smoke a cigarette. I was smoking less, but I was never able to successfully quit.
I heard about A New Day Hypnosis on citysearch. I decided that it couldn't hurt and I didn't have any qualms about hypnosis, so after I read the testimonials I just picked up the phone and called. I smoked my last cigarette on my way to my first appointment and noticed a change in my behaviors that night. My thought process was different. I've been a nonsmoker for two months now and I've haven't had a smoker's cough at all. I've been exercising for the first time since high school. I could never get on the treadmill before and now I'm doing it every week.
This has been remarkably easier than I imagined it would be. I didn't have to fight urges to go outside and smoke a cigarette. I worked on retraining my brain and applying the things that Laura was teaching me and I feel free because I'm not chained to the cigarettes anymore. I see things differently and think differently now. Hypnosis has eliminated 98% of urges and cravings. I thought that this would be a constant battle, but I actually went outside and sat next to my Dad when he smoked a cigarette and I had no desire to have one, it felt really good.
I feel better about myself because I'm free from that addiction and I'm getting myself healthier. The biggest benefit for me has been not smoking and knowing that I've done it. I'm just going to be healthier and it has lifted a huge burden off my shoulders. The process has helped me with way more than just smoking alone. Laura helps me see things in a different light and I would absolutely recommend A New Day Hypnosis to anyone who wants to stop smoking because it has helped me. I know that I am a non-smoker permanently because I haven't had cravings and haven't wanted to smoke. I just feel totally confident in myself now and it feels really good.
