Smoking is said to be an addiction. There is nothing furthest from the truth because like any habit, the way it was created, it can be uncreated.
Thinking that you have an addiction is disempowering and as long as you think you have no power over your habit you will keep that habit.
The very first thing you need to realise is that you can choose to be smoke-free for the rest of your life. Becoming smoke-free will be easier than you ever previously thought, with the help of hypnosis.
Whether you are a heavy smoker or a social smoker, whether you smoke tobacco or don’t seem to be able to come off other kinds of smoke, hypnosis will make it easy for you to overcome the urge to smoke and stay smoke-free for the rest of your life, once you have made your decision to be smoke-free.
A 2-hour session is all is needed for most people, however because hypnosis is a personal phenomena it works differently for different people.
Some people, in truth very few may need a second one-hour session depending on their smoking history and whether there is an emotional attachment to the smoking, in which case we need to work on that to ensure that the unconscious mind will not sabotage the new intentions.
There is plenty of research showing that hypnosis for habit addiction has by far the best results as it does provide the easiest way to giving up cigarettes for good.
Remember: “Nothing is Impossible, the word itself says I’M POSSIBLE!”
Below is some research evidence of the effectiveness of hypnosis in smoking cessation for you to consider

‘Hypnosis Most Effective Says Largest Study Ever: 3 Times as Effective as Patch and 15 Times as Effective as Willpower.’
Hypnosis is the most effective way of giving up smoking, according to the largest ever scientific comparison of ways of breaking the habit. A meta-analysis, statistically combining results of more than 600 studies of 72,000 people from America and Europe to compare various methods of quitting. On average, hypnosis was over three times as effective as nicotine replacement methods and 15 times as effective as trying to quit alone.
