  • I am so happy that people are actually here with me!  I was hesitant to start this because was afraid no one else would be interested.  ... more

    As a past smoker, I know the challenges and being a female the weight gain is an issue for us. I am a hypnotherapist and can offer some suggestions to help put an end to your smoking. * Tell yourself you’re a non-smoker, you don't smoke, you hate to smoke. Keep reinforcing that into your mind. * Switch to a low tar brand that you know you will not like * Cut your smokes in half and discard the cut off portion. * Poke pin holes in the half you keep to smoke. * Place smokes in a zip lock bag and put in a place hard to get to (You will really need one in order to go get one). * No ashtrays in the house. * Smoke only outside (even in bad weather). * Each week cut the number of smokes by 5 (20 the first week, 15 the next week, 10 the next) until your down to one. * Contact me or a hypnotherapist that is your last smoke you will ever smoke, this is your day to combat and conquer your habit. For more information, please feel free to call or email me.

    Tomorrow is my day! I have about five cigs left now and a whole bunch of nicotene gum. Wish me luck! Hope I won't gain any weight because I'm on a new diet also.
