Celebrating 9 years smoke-free with 1 hypnosis session

Smoking is a dangerous and addictive habit that can cause serious health problems. Unfortunately, many people struggle to quit smoking, even after trying various methods. However, hypnotherapy has been gaining popularity as an effective method for quitting smoking. In this article, we will discuss a case study where I helped a client stop smoking after 20 years in one session with hypnotherapy.


The client, a male in his 50s, had been smoking for 20 years and had tried to quit multiple times using various methods, including nicotine patches, gum, and prescription medications. However, none of these methods worked for him, and he found himself still smoking a pack of cigarettes a day.

The client had heard about hypnotherapy but was sceptical of its effectiveness. However, he decided to give it a try after seeing some positive reviews and testimonials online. When he arrived for his session, he was apprehensive and unsure of what to expect.

We started the session by discussing his smoking habits and triggers. We talked about his motivations for quitting and how he envisioned his life without cigarettes. I then guided him into a state of deep relaxation and began the hypnotherapy session.

During the session, I used a combination of positive suggestions, visualisation techniques, and cognitive-behavioural therapy to help the client overcome his addiction to cigarettes. I helped him visualise himself as a non-smoker and focused on the benefits of quitting smoking, such as improved health, better breathing, and more money.

After the session, the client reported feeling relaxed and positive about quitting smoking. He left the office feeling confident and excited about his new smoke-free life.

To my surprise, the client reached out to me nine years later to provide an update on his progress. He reported that he had not smoked a cigarette since his session with me and that he had no desire to smoke again. He was amazed at how easy it had been to quit smoking and how much his life had improved since he quit.

The client had experienced some withdrawal symptoms in the days following the session, but he was able to manage them with the coping techniques I had taught him. He reported feeling more energised and healthier than ever before and had saved a considerable amount of money since he quit smoking.

The client also shared that he had recommended hypnotherapy to several of his friends and family members who were struggling to quit smoking. He had become a believer in the power of hypnosis and was grateful for the positive impact it had on his life.

In conclusion, this case study highlights the effectiveness of hypnotherapy as a method for quitting smoking. The client, a long-time smoker, was able to quit smoking after just one session of hypnotherapy and has not smoked for nine years. The client's experience demonstrates the power of hypnosis and the potential for it to help individuals overcome addiction and make positive changes in their lives.

It is important to note that hypnotherapy is not a magic solution and may not work for everyone. However, for individuals who are open to the idea and willing to give it a try, it can be a powerful tool for quitting smoking and making positive changes in their lives.

Overall, this case study provides hope and inspiration for individuals who are struggling to quit smoking. It demonstrates that quitting smoking is possible and that hypnotherapy can be an effective method for achieving this goal. By working with a skilled hypnotherapist, individuals can access the power of their subconscious minds and make lasting positive changes in their lives.
