Smokers with multiple new diagnoses were 6 times more likely to quit smoking compared with those with no new diagnoses (Archives of Internal Medicine, 2009)
From the American College of Chest Physicians
A new study presented at CHEST 2007, the 73rd annual international scientific assembly of the American College of Chest Physicians (ACCP), shows that smoking patients who participated in one hypnotherapy session were more likely to be nonsmokers at 6 months compared with patients using nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) alone or patients who quit "cold turkey"
What is all the more impressive is that a single hypnosis session was as effective as nicotine replacement therapy. Much higher success rates are reported for those who utilize four or five session formats, with studies showing a 64% and 67% success rate (Hammond, 1990, p. 407).
I am presently a retired physician who practiced medicine in New York for over thirty years.
I smoked cigarettes as a teenager and stopped when I entered medical school.
Later on I began to smoke cigars. [...] I usually smoked in the evening and the next morning I would
notice a cough, increased sinus discharge and a foul taste in my mouth. Although I wanted
to stop smoking I was not able to. I consulted Michael Etts for hypnotherapy. After one thirty
minute session, I stopped smoking immediately. Mike's post-hypnotic suggestions were very
effective as the one time that I did try a cigar, I became ill with nausea and headache.
It has now been one month since my therapy and I have not smoked another cigar.
I would highly recommend hypnotherapy with Michael Etts for cessation of smoking.

There is no better time to stop smoking than now. The health costs and the economic costs accumulate every day. You may tried to stop smoking in the past and feel discouraged. Or you may think that tobacco is just too addictive of a habit to give up. If you feel like it is too much effort, just think of the coughing, wheezing and the morning phlegm. Also, remember that half of all adult smokers have already quit (CDC).Is today your day?
consider this from The National Cancer Institute
Smoking harms nearly every organ of the body and diminishes a person's overall health. Smoking is a leading cause of cancer and of death from cancer. It causes cancers of the lung, esophagus, larynx (voice box), mouth, throat, kidney, bladder, pancreas, stomach, and cervix, as well as acute myeloid leukemia
Cigarette smoking and exposure to tobacco smoke cause an estimated average of 438,000 premature deaths each year in the United States. Of these premature deaths, about 40 percent are from cancer, 35 percent are from heart disease and stroke, and 25 percent are from lung disease. Smoking is the leading cause of premature, preventable death in this country.
