I have just realised that it has now been 12 years since I stopped smoking through hypnotherapy, this is why I believe in this treatment. Having been a smoker myself, I understand the draw to this past-time. I enjoyed the process of smoking but didn’t want to be a smoker, the smell, the money etc. I remember pretending that I needed more milk for the morning and driving off at midnight to a garage to make sure that I had cigarettes for the next morning. They took over so much of my life. When I stopped, I felt such freedom.
