Samuel L. Jackson, a well-respected actor in Hollywood has succesfully quit smoking after being recommended to a hypnotherapist by his friend, TV personality Judge Judy. The actor was given a truth serum during two sessions which lasted 90 minutes each. Ten weeks later, and Jackson has still not smoked a cigarette - but he dreams about smoking.

Stop smoking using Hypnotherapy had been proven. It is much easier and effortlessly but still depend on your determination. Quit smoking today to enjoy a healthy life!

Research on the effectiveness of hypnosis for quitting smoking

To find the most effective method to stop smoking Frank Schmidt and research student Chockalingham Viswesvaran from the university of Iowa used a meta-analysis, utilising the results of more than 600 studies totalling nearly 72,000 people.

The results, which were published in the Journal of Applied Psychology and included 48 studies of hypnosis covering 6000 smokers, clearly showed that hypnosis, to use the same terminology as the quit counsellor, was three times more effective than NRT.
