I’ve always wanted to be able to say: “As Seen on TV!” Now I can, because after my book on smoking cessation was featured in a newspaper article, I was invited onto the live Breakfast Show on Channel M (TV for Manchester!) to talk about it. Later – 29th January 2008 – they invited me back and issued a challenge: could I help a member of their staff to stop smoking with hypnotherapy?
The woman in question, Samantha Jordan, was someone I had never met before the show. The plan was to do one session at my office, then go back on the show later and discuss the results. The session took place on the 9th February 2008, and about a month later (12th March) we went back on the show.
Sam reported no cravings at all since the session, no desire to smoke, that she was perfectly comfortable around other people smoking but didn’t want one, in fact the thought of smoking herself was now unpleasant to her. She had not found herself eating more or gaining any weight, in fact she said she felt much healthier in every way. The TV presenters seemed astonished, but I wasn’t surprised in the least, and in my judgement it is unlikely Sam will ever smoke again.
Now, ask yourself this question: Why would I accept a challenge like that? To work with someone who probably wouldn’t have thought of contacting me if the TV Station hadn’t needed a volunteer, just one session, then have to go back on live TV to talk about the results? Why take the risk? What if it hadn’t worked?
The answer is simple: that’s what usually happens, so I reckoned it was well worth the small risk of looking like an idiot myself for the great opportunity to demonstrate to thousands of smokers that hypnotherapy is by far the easiest and most successful way of quitting smoking, and anyone can do it. You won’t gain weight either, and it requires zero effort from the smoker. Interested?
