    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    I would like to know just how effective is Hypnosis on helping you quit smoking??
    silerblaz03 responded:
    Spent $60.00 and still smoke. I went with 6 other people and it was a waste!
    GGrandmaJan replied to silerblaz03's response:
    I do believe it is best to have a one-on-one session. Too many people and a person gets lost in the shuffle.

    I did it some years ago and had great sucess. Then got a rare form of cancer and went back to it. But it did work for years.

    Go to a one on one.

    Best of luck to you.
    ericbeattie responded:
    The advice on one-to-one sessions is sound, but more importantly there needs to be a desire on your part to quit. This is often overlooked by therapists who see the immediate gain of a paying client rather than the more ethical results-oriented outlook that should prevail. Do choose the therapist carefully, the more faith you have in his effectiveness, the more likely you are to achieve a positive outcome. I do wish you every success. Best wishes, Eric
