Smoked for over 30 years and stopped after only 1 session!
I had smoked for over 20 years solid, and then spent another 10 years calling myself a "weekend smoker" – but a smoker is a smoker. My clothes reeked of smoke, my kids were concerned about my health and the weekend habit still caused a ton of grief with my asthma (really stupid to smoke, I know, but hooked is hooked) – PLUS it always led back to full-time smoking regardless of what I called it.

I had tried every method I could think of – the patch, just going cold turkey, gum, anti-smoking programs, etc. Nothing ever really worked for me – I’d always end up back at ground zero eventually.

But Mike’s method – the very first time I tried it – has worked for me. I’m going on my first full year as a non-smoker – completely - no weekend smoking, no "maybe just this one time" cigarettes, no "stressed-out" cigarettes – nothing. I was amazed at first, but it has gotten even better.

It has gotten to the point that every "ex-smoker wannabe" dreams of – cigarettes don’t even cross my mind anymore – even when I’m bored and once upon a time would have thought I "needed" them the most. I can smell it when someone in the car in front of me is smoking and it disgusts me – I go out of my way to avoid smokers as if I hadn’t smoked for 30 years. That sounds bad in a way, I suppose, but I only say it to illustrate how well and how strongly Mike’s program worked for me, and how much I believe in it.

I honestly believe Mike did me a lifesaving favor – my lungs feel fantastic and I can run, walk, whatever I want without the coughing hack and 100-pound weight on my chest that cigarettes gave me.

Hypnotherapy, also referred to as hypnosis or hypnotic suggestion, is a trance-like state in which you have heightened focus, concentration and inner absorption. When you're under hypnosis, you usually feel calm and relaxed, and you can concentrate intensely on a specific thought, memory, feeling or sensation while blocking out distractions.

Under hypnosis, you're more open than usual to positive suggestions, and this can be used to help modify your perceptions, behavior, sensations and emotions. Therapeutic hypnosis is used to improve your health and well-being and is different from so-called stage hypnosis used by entertainers. Although you're more open to positive suggestions during therapeutic hypnosis, your free will remains intact and you don't lose control over your behavior.

Cognitive-Behaviorial Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive-behavioral therapy is based on the idea that our thoughts cause our feelings and behaviors, not external things, such as people, situations, and events. The benefit of this fact is that we can change the way we think in order to feel and act better, even if the external situation doesn’t change.

Neuro-Linguistics Programming (NLP)

Neuro-Linguistic Programming encompasses the three most influential components involved in producing human experience: neurology, language and programming. The neurological system regulates how our bodies function, language determines how we interface and communicate with other people, and our programming determines the kinds of models of the world we create. Neuro-Linguistic Programming describes the fundamental dynamics between mind (neuro) and language (linguistic) and how their interplay affects our body and behavior (programming).
