84 Days Smoke Free

Posted in Hints and tips 02 Oct 2013

Hi everyone, just wanted to share my story.

I started smoking when I was 17 and I'm now 48.  In that time I probably tried to give up once.  However over the past couple of years giving up entered my mind quite a lot but never ever thought I could go through with it!!   As luck would have it I tried three sessions of hypnotherapy and I've now been a non-smoker for 84 days - I also used nicabate mini's which helped me alot.  

For those just starting out please don't give up hope - I know it's hard - but keep going because it does get easier, even though you can't possibly imagine it!!!!  Good luck to everyone - if I can do it then anyone can!!!

    Dianna, fantastic 84 days WELL DONE! I too was a dedicated and highly experienced smoker some 40 years at 35 to 40 a day. AND I too went through the hypnotherapy sessions and thus far have been smoke free for 147 days. I cannot speak too highly of hypnotherapy MIRACLE CURE!!! First session down to 4 cigarettes after second session ZERO no NRT nothing but 3 1 hour sessions.

    Hi Diana, I have just been to a hypnotist as well I have another session this Thursday but I did slip and have two on the weekend. Did you stop after your first session?

    Hi Vickim2 - no I didn't stop after my first session even though I tried!!! By the second one I was pretty determined to stop, good luck.
