  How far will you get with 150 g of tobacco?
(= $240 to stop smoking)


PART 1: Practice with the Relaxation Exercise and cutting down on smoking
  • You will receive a Relaxation Exercise including instructions on e week prior to your first appointment through mail or e-mail. You need to practice with this Relaxation Exercise at least once a day.
  • Make sure that you follow the instructions for practicing with the Relaxation Exercise.
  • If you have any questions or queries, don’t hesitate to call.
  • You also need to cut down on your smoking. Attempt to not smoke one hour before or after a meal, and this includes morning tea, afternoon tea and supper.
  • If you stick to the above regime, by the time you come for your first hypnotherapy appointment, you will have cut down considerably and it is not uncommon for people to come to their first appointment having stopped already or be nearly there.
  • You need to stick to this regime for a minimum of one week. This means you should practice the Relaxation Exercise every day and follow the instructions about smoking mentioned above until you attend your first appointment.
If you haven’t followed the above regime, your first session of hypnotherapy will not go ahead because these tasks are most important to the whole process.
(There are no costs involved until your first session.)
