Quitting smoking has long been one of the hardest things on the planet to accomplish for anyone.
Whether you choose to go cold turkey, wear a patch, or gradually quit smoking over time, it's just not easy.
But, many say that hypnosis can take much of the difficulty out of the process to quit smoking.
According to Fox, Hypnotherapist Ed Martin says it could be as simple as one or two sessions. Martin was once hopelessly addicted to cigarettes, but says he sought out hypnotherapy.
The result of those sessions helped him to quit smoking, and he has since become a hypnotherapist so that he can help others.
“I was smoking three packs a day,” Martin said of his beaten habit. “In the first session I stopped!"
Martin says the power to quit smoking, or lose weight or control anxiety for that matter, is all in a person's head and they have the power to control those impulses.
“Everything in life is learned, habits, behavior. Everything is learned. We learn from things that happened to us in things we've learned. Then our subconscious learned it and it becomes automatic," Martin said.
Martin says it generally only takes one session to be able to quit smoking. During the session, he can pinpoint the "triggers" that make a person want to smoke.
Then, they just quit smoking!
“We have a session and they stop smoking," he claims.
It seems pretty amazing, but is it really true? With so many people around the country struggling to quit smoking, it seems like there should just be more to it than that!
What do you think? Have you ever quit smoking? Did you try hypnosis and did it work?
