The basic principle of the use of hypnotherapy for smoking cessation is to bring those unhealthy thoughts to the surface and to replace them with more positive thoughts that encourage the smoker to break his/ her negative patterns or behavior.
After 20 + years of smoking, I didn't think I could do it. I was
sceptical in the
beginning but I am amazed at the outcome after just 1 session. I didn't feel the need to smoke after my session with Joyce. I did try it once about a week after just for
curiorsity and I
realised that I didn't like the taste anymore. Never touched
ciggarettes since then.

I've tried patches and medications. It worked for a
while but it only lasted at most for 3 weeks. I went to Joyce, as recommended by a friend as I am really happy with the results so far. It has been 5 months now and there
isn't any thoughts or cravings.
