hypnosis and quitting smoking

I would like to know just how effective is Hypnosis on helping you quit smoking??

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
