I have smoked for 45 years and was diagnosed with COPD several years ago and continued to smoke having to use 3 different inhalers to breath. I saw a brochure for Columbia Hypnosis and decided to try it. I have been smoke free for 9 days and have no desire to smoke. I was worried all I would think about is smoking and that is not the case. Being hypnotized is very calming and amazing how it works. I plan to use it if needed for other issues such as sleeping, stress, etc. Michael is a wonderful hypnotist and truly concerned with the issues associated with smoking.
