Hypnosis is a powerful tool to quit smoking

When you’re ready to stop smoking, hypnosis is a powerful tool.  Smoking has a multitude of negative side effects, including: damaging the heart and lungs, causing cancer, causing your voice to change, yellowing of your fingers and teeth and causing premature aging.  Not only is smoking is very expensive, but the odor of cigarette smoke can affect your relationships and your career.

Below are studies that show the effectiveness of smoking cessation hypnosis.  You’ll see hypnosis, when compared to other methods to quit smoking, is the most powerful tool available.
