Stoptober was introduced in 2012 to encourage smokers to stop smoking for 28 days.  The evidence suggests that if you stop smoking for 28 days, you are five times more likely to stop for good. Stoptober has become an annual event.  It is estimated that there are around seven million adult smokers in the UK and it is thought that 70% would like to quit.

The New Scientist reported from research carried out by the University of Iowa, who had examined over 600 studies which looked at methods to stop smoking and found that hypnotherapy was the most effective.

The subconscious mind influences our actions and feelings.  Hypnotherapy works by putting the client in a relaxed state so that the subconscious mind becomes more open to positive suggestions to help you become and remain a non-smoker. Smoking is a habit and this habit can be changed through positive suggestions.
