“Hypnosis Most Effective Cure” Says Largest Study Ever: 3 Times as Effective as Patch and 15 Times as Effective as Willpower.

 “Hypnosis is the most effective way of giving up smoking”, according to the largest ever scientific comparison of ways of breaking the habit. A meta-analysis, statistically combining results of more than 600 studies of 72,000 people from America and Europe to compare various methods of quitting. On average, hypnosis was over three times as effective as nicotine replacement methods and 15 times as effective as trying to quit alone. This is simply more proof that hypnosis is your best bet to quit smoking.

As you can see, there is abundant proof that hypnosis can help you quit smoking. Now, here is the “but”, or caveat (isn’t there always one?): You’ve really got to want to quit. If someone you care for smokes, and you want them to quit but they are conflicted, it probably won’t help until they are completely ready to become smoke free. That is just the way these things are. But once the decision has been made, there is an 81% chance we can help. Contact us.
