This is not what I expected at all. I walked in, we talked very practically about smoking for a while, and then before I knew it, I was drifting off. It wasn't that I was completely out of it, but I just felt very relaxed. When I walked out, I was convinced that it wouldn't work, but I would look at my pack of cigarettes, and was completely unable to have one. It has now been 6 months and I don't have even the slightest craving. I don't know what it was about the hypnosis, but I have tried the patch, the gum, acupuncture, and Chantax and nothing worked. All I can say is that it did work, and I couldn't be happier.
