Caution: Do not listen to this App While driving.
If you have decided to quit, this self-hypnosis program will work for you.
Hypnosis is shown to be a very effective tool in areas of behavior modification. Stop smoking commercials state, "Best results when used in combination with a behavior modification program."
Nicotine replacement is only about 32% effective Chantix is 44% at 6 months and 22% at a year. Hypnosis by an experienced hypnotists is greater that 65% effective. Highly motivated According to the National Institutes of Health Hypnosis is one of the best methods available for stress reduction & relaxation which enhances one's ability to respond to quit smoking suggestions.
Hypnosis is a focused natural state with the brain in an alpha, theta frequency somewhat like day dreaming. Changing the mind changes the brain which changes a behavior.
Important! Every night as you are falling asleep say to yourself 10 time "I quit" and create a picture in your mind of you as a non smoker. A picture of you healthy happy and in control of all habits.
At other times if the thought of wanting to smoke comes into your mind - take a deep breath and visualize the reason you gave up smoking.
Continually see yourself as a non smoker.
You become what you see yourself to be. Listen to some part of the CD at least once daily. In the morning and in the afternoon find 3-5 minutes to relax and meditate (go into self-hypnosis) and visualize yourself as a non-smoker, as having already quit.
The subconscious mind maintains what it thinks you are. We filter through the alpha theta brain wave state as falling to sleep, when driving and when day dreaming. There are no feelings or emotions without thought. Only you can control your thoughts.

"Hey Ron! I've been using your 'stop smoking' App. Five days without a cigarette!!
"Wow this program is amazing, I've smoked all my adult life, and tried everything from patches, to gum, and nothing seemed to work. I purchased your Quit Smoking program for the price of a carton of cigarettes, and quit immediately after listening to the CDs. I continued to listen to his program each day, and I've been without nicotine for over a year now. Thank you so much Ron, I can now breath, play outside with my kids, and I've saved so much money! You are the best Ron. I also used your Lose Weight with Self-Hypnosis program, and lost 100 lbs at the same time as using your Quit Smoking program. My Family and I would like to thank you for saving my life and I will recommend your program to all my smoking and overweight friends and family. Thanks, David
