Is it possible to stop smoking with a hypnosis seminar?

I want to try it but only if it will work.

Some people have found hypnosis to be a fantastic way to quit smoking and others have said that it did not work for them at all. It can't hurt to give it a try and see if it works for you.

It is possible to stop smoking with a hypnosis seminar only if you really believe that you can be hypnotized. The only time hypnosis doesn't work is if the person goes into the hypnosis with the attitude that it will not work. But if person goes in with a positive attitude then it should work.

Some people claim that these seminars work but when it comes to things to try to stop smoking you have to find what is right for you. If you have the extra money and really want to go, try it. There is no harm.

Absolutely. Back in the 60's my dad delivered babies using hypnosis. When the woman entered the hospital, its doors "became her anesthesia." She had her baby feeling NO PAIN. She laughed and talked throughout delivery because for 9 months she'd been training using hypnosis. So, yes, you can quit smoking!

Many people swear it works, but research shows that a single hypnosis session is rarely successful in breaking a habit, especailly one as strong as smoking. You will need multiple sessions with the hypnotist to learn the self-talk skills you need to be able to quit for good.

Yes, but everyone's different. You should use it in combination with other stop smoking aids such as the patch, counseling, etc. for the most success.

Yes, it is possible, I have known people who have quit using this method and they have never smoked again.
