Recent studies have shown that hypnosis is an excellent way to help people stop smoking. In a controlled study, researchers looked at 4 groups: 1 that used hypnosis and the patch, 1 that used hypnosis and nicotine gum, 1 group that used hypnosis and Chantix, and the last group used hypnosis only. The results were surprising…of the 4 groups the one that performed the best in breaking the smoking habit was the group that used hypnosis only. Hypnosis has a 68% to 75% success rate when it comes to smoking cessation. So if you or someone you know needs help letting go of cigarettes, hypnosis can be an effective way to leading a healthier, more productive life.
