For some people, hypnosis can be very dramatic. However, for others, its powerful effects may be much more subtle. When Zara left the smoking cessation seminar at Central Florida Regional Hospital in Sanford, Florida, she felt very skeptical. “Was I even hypnotized?” she wondered. It was the day before her birthday and she desperately wanted to quit. However, after the hypnosis, she wasn’t quite sure if any great change had taken place. But she did notice something different inside herself. To her delight, she wasn’t reaching for a cigarette, the way she normally would. She decided to give the program a shot and re-inforce the hypnosis with her audio recording. A month later, she hasn’t had a single cigerette!

Zara was a smoker for approximately 40 years. She had tried to quit 3 or 4 times in the past with no luck. She’d get very angry and out of control after just 5 or 6 hours without a cigarette. So she always gave up. This time she came out of the seminar still wanting a cigarette. But it was different somehow. She could control what she would do! The physical withdraw symptoms were not nearly as bad as in the past. On top of everything, a few days after the seminar, her brother passed away. He had lung cancer, and other complications. Zara went to the hospital with her sister, and on the way, though she wanted a cigarette very badly, she remembered that she had told her brother, Greg, on Sunday evening that she had quit. He was very pleased. So she held on to that thought and did a lot of deep breathing!

We can all learn from Zara’s commitment to herself and belief in the possiblity for personal change. Whether your hypnosis experiences are dramatic or subtle, one thing is for sure. You can create the future you desire by clinging to and replaying the images, phrases and strong emotions that reflect the life that you want. What you focus on grows! So if you want to be a non-smoker, focus on the thrill of living in freedom, cleanliness and in control of your life and your habits. If you long to fit into those comfortable jeans, create a vision in your mind’s eye of how great you’ll look and feel as you stroll through town in your youthful, attractive outfit. Drop any doubt and hold the vision of the life that you deserve. Step into your new image, leave the past behind, and say, “yes” to your new and fabulous creation–the new you! Thank you, Zara, for your inspiration.
