October 22, 2007: Hospitalized patients who smoke may be more likely to quit smoking through the use of hypnotherapy than patients using other smoking cessation methods. A new study presented at CHEST 2007, the 73rd annual international scientific assemble of the American college of Chest Physicians (ACCP), shows that smoking patients who participated in one hypnotherapy session were more likely to be nonsmokers at 6 months compared with patients who quit “cold turkey”.

“Our results showed that hypnotherapy resulted in higher quit rates compared with NRT alone,” said Faysal Hasan, MD, FCCP, North Shore Medical Center, Salem, MA. “Hypnotherapy appears to be quite effective and a good modality to incorporate into a smoking cessation program after hospital discharge.”

All most all my smoking cessation clients report to me that they have little to no withdrawal symptoms and that with hypnosis stopping smoking is easy.  I teach all of my clients self-hypnosis so that they have hypnosis as a life time tool for their success in what ever they do.

Are you ready to stop smoking?
