I want to live!
  Stop Smoking

 

 

Congratulations. You have finally made the decision to give up, and that decision has brought you here.

There are many reasons why smokers do decide to quit. There are the health consequences of what might happen if you were to continue to smoke, the money wasted and the smell, the aging effects (unattractive skin and wrinkling) or that you want be to be around to watch your children grow up.

If you were to continue to smoke, there's a 50% chance it will kill you and a 75% chance that it will give you a chronic illness (eg., emphysema, heart disease, stroke, blocked airways disease, vascular disease, amputation of the legs, feet and toes, gum disease and lung cancer).

Smoking has also been linked to many other cancers, cancers of the face, throat and mouth, tongue, testicles, breast, stomach, pancreas, cervix, bladder and kidney.

You have reached the conclusion that you do enjoy life and yes, that you do want to live for as long as you possibly can.

 

 

 

Your Stop Smoking Session

Your session is a simple, effective, three-step process;

Step 1: Kerry will ask you 'Why do you want to stop smoking?" and then run through some health related statistics with you. 

Step 2: Hypnotherapy will follow. There is nothing to be concerned about. You will not be knocked out. You will still be aware of what is going on around you.

Step 3: Following the hypnotherapy, some suggestions and recommendations will be given.

After the hypnotherapy session you will leave feeling relaxed, positive, committed and determined to be and to remain a non-smoker.
