The Truth About Quit Smoking Hypnosis

The Truth

Most smokers are really good at quitting... they do it all the time! But quitting and staying quit are two separate matters.

The majority of smokers want to stub out the habit

And they have lots of good reasons to give it up – current health, fear for their future health, being a social outcast and missing out on romantic possibilities. Then there’s the smell, the inconvenience, feeling controlled, being a negative influence on their kids, or future infertility.

To say nothing of the money! Smoking is expensive! A recent survey reported the average Australian smoker spends over $400,000 on that habit in their lifetime. Wouldn’t you rather have that money in your pocket?

Give yourself a pay rise – around $4,000 a year – year in, year out – just by stubbing out the habit! And if you stop smoking – right now – you start adding years to your life – healthy, quality years!

Well, then – why don’t people look at the facts and just quit?

Generally people start smoking early in life, as a form of rebellion or to fit in with their peers.

Already conditioned by advertising, portraying smoking as cool or glamorous, they begin to form a habit.

When you create a habit of smoking, over the years cigarettes become linked to a
number of activities, times of the day and emotions.

  • At the end of a meal
  • If you’re feeling stressed
  • As a reward
  • Answering the phone
  • With coffee or alcohol
  • Being bored
  • Taking a break from work

And when you say to yourself ‘a meal’s not complete without a cigarette’ then you create a habit and a belief.

Those connections make people worry about cravings or what to do with their hands. We’ll address all that so you don’t have to worry.

Other methods

Most smoking cessation methods have limited success


Cold Turkey

is often a spur of the moment thing, and without preparation and a plan a high percentage of people who give up cold turkey fail. The emotions around the smoking habit need to be tackled or when the first stressful event or social occasion comes along people usually start smoking again.


Nicotine Replacement Therapies

can help some people overcome the physical craving for nicotine but can also cause a range of unpleasant side effects. And unfortunately products like nicotine patches and gum do not address the emotional aspects of smoking.


Zyban and Champix

initially used to help people with anxiety, don’t address the habits and emotions surrounding smoking either. And the downside with the antidepressant pills is that your brain chemistry is altered and this may cause serious side effects.


Herbal Products, Acupuncture and Laser Therapy

may be beneficial but it was difficult to find formal studies on their process or effectiveness.

The Truth

Hypnotherapy deals with your unconscious, and is why it is so effective.

It targets those emotional connections to cigarettes and the habits that have been created around smoking over the years.

Most people have very few withdrawal symptoms with hypnosis and with replacement strategies in place, if they do, they have the tools to cope.

Over 93% of my clients are successful in one session. Using hypnosis with other powerful mind techniques, emotional links to smoking are broken. Old patterns and beliefs change quickly. And quitting becomes a whole lot easier than you think.


Real Reviews From Previous Clients Who
Successfully Quit Smoking

“IT WORKS! Forty years of smoking and in 90 minutes I became a non-smoker. It has now been 6 months of clean living. I was a bit tentative about this idea but thought I had little to lose by trying. I did not have the will-power to do this on my own and hypnosis was my last option. Michelle is such a wonderful person to work with. Meeting her and sharing with her was so comfortable from the start and right through the whole process. She listens carefully and truly understands. It was such an easy session, but such amazing results. Thank You Michelle. For what this one session cost I recouped by not purchasing cigarettes. I feel great, have felt improved fitness, don’t smell of smoke and am not a social outcast. I also feel that I have so much more time – everything I do is not bookended by stopping for a smoke. There are a very few times that I have this whisper of a feeling to have a smoke, but it disappeared as quickly. I am still astounded that a lifetime addiction can be stopped in 90 minutes! I actually enjoyed talking with Michelle and felt so comfortable throughout – warm, friendly and totally understanding. If you are at all thinking about trying hypnosis, and really do want to quit – GO FOR IT. My only regret…why not many years ago. I am healthy, save money and totally in control. Great work Michelle – maybe a life saver”

“I HAD been a smoker for in excess of 35 years, with an average 50 smoke a day habit, yep first thing in the morning and last thing at night. In early March of this year on a whim I contacted Michelle to really make an effort to quit.
I remember one of the funniest, yet sadist things was that she heard me lighting a smoke whilst we were discussing a booking time and my commitment to give up, yep an in-grained habit of making or answering the phone I need a smoke! We settled on the 25th of March so I had a good 2 weeks to really smoke it up, that date was “Good Friday” or my doctor tells me “Great Friday”.
I can honestly say the amount of work Michelle puts in prior to the session to understand the root cause is outstanding and the real game changer. Needless to say it is now November and I haven’t once remotely felt like a smoke since – my wife and son still smoke in front of me and that doesn’t have an impact – I have traveled OS on party hard weekends and NO slip ups, because I am now a “Life long NON Smoker” and trust me you can be too – give it a go and be committed!
Thank you once again Michelle.”

“Thanks Michelle, one session and I’m free again and staying that way. If you want to give up smoking, go and see Michelle, because it works. At 53 yo and being back on the smokes for 9 years, it was taking it’s toll on me. I had the only pre-requisite for being successful – I genuinely wanted to stop. One appointment with Michelle and I walked out a non-smoker. You are not giving it up, you are giving it away, so you come out a non-smoker, not an ex-smoker. Within a week I’d been out on two big nights on the town and not even looking like having a cigarette. No cravings or withdrawals, no bad moods, none of the bad stuff. I simply walked out not needing or wanting a smoke. I have been hypnotised before (30 years ago) and knew it was going to work. Over two weeks now and I’m saving a fortune, sleeping better, back at martial arts training, in the gym and on the bike every day, losing weight toning up and it’s not even an effort. Michelle does a one-on-one session, it’s al over in about 90 minutes. Do yourself a favour, go and see Michelle armed with a genuine desire to stop smoking and walk out that day as a non-smoker. If you are motivated, you will succeed. Just remember, you cant have just one, ever. It doesn’t work that way. Good luck!””

“Just a quick note to thank you for helping me stop smoking. After 39 years of abusing my body with cigarette smoke, I can finally say I am a non-smoker and loving it…. all thanks to YOU! I really enjoyed my hypnotherapy session and walked out of your office more relaxed and confident to finally beat the habit for good; and my cravings were instantly gone! I am really enjoying my freedom and I am so happy that I am no longer a smoker. I sincerely recommend you to anyone who wishes to give up smoking for life.”
