I am writing to express my warmest thanks and sincere gratitude for your help with my smoking
cessation. I had been a smoker for 36 years, and therefore the habit was ingrained into every aspect of my life.
I tried to quit several times (at least 9 that I can recall) which lasted from 3 to 8months, only to end up hooked again.
My health has been an issue because of my smoking, and I was beginning to have difficulty breathing when walking up and down stairs, or just walking short distances.
I have recently been diagnosed with early stages of COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), which scared me terribly, as I have 3 wonderful grown children, and a grandchild that I love more than anything – yet, I was unable to quit and continued to smoke. My every waking thought from the time I opened my eyes in the morning, to my last thought before I fell asleep, was consumed with the fear of dying.
I pictured my children grieving at the loss of their mother, and was therefore consumed with sorrow, grief, and anxiety.
For me, the quitting was easy, it was staying quit that was hard—everything I did, had a smoking component—first thing in the morning, after dinner, during phone calls, driving in the car, having the odd alcoholic beverage (usually warranted 3 times the amount of cigarettes), etc.
Since our first session on October 26, 2012, I can truly and proudly declare – I am a non-smoker!
I feel like I have been given a new lease on life, and am now optimistically looking forward to the rest of my long and healthy life with my family, and future grandchildren.
I am no longer consumed with thoughts of doom and gloom, but with feelings of accomplishment, pride, joy, and
absolute bliss! Each and every day is filled with happiness
I’ve never felt so good, or so good about myself.
My friends and family have noticed a change in me, stating I look and sound so happy, calm and relaxed. I am!
I wish everyone could feel as happy and free as I do, so I have been referring friends and family to you.
I feel so totally in control of my life, and can say with conviction (for the first time ever) that I
will never smoke again. I am free!
As I write these words to express my thanks, I am becoming emotional and overcome by a deep sense of optimistic joy and most sincere gratitude. You are in my thoughts every day, and I will never be able to truly express how absolutely grateful I am. You have changed my life! Thank you Ron!!! Please feel free to use any part of this letter as a testimonial in any way you wish.
I just wanted to let you know that I am still losing weight!! Its still slow but each week its another 1 or sometimes 2 pounds down. The total weight loss so far is 25 pounds. The inches are still coming off as well. I have lost about 21/2 off the top, 3 off the waist and 3 1/2 off the hips. I am down about 2 sizes. I am happy with the ongoing results even though I wish it would come off faster :). I put in one of the cd's every night and I know that it puts me into hypnosis because I wake up slightly at the counting up.
I am emailing you because I wanted to thank you so much for putting me on this path. The portions of food are easy to maintain, I don't even think about it now, it's just a natural progression. I feel so much healthier and happier now!
I just wanted to let you know that my hypnosis sessions with you have been so successful! Remember I was frustrated with spending so much time and energy thinking about eating things like cupcakes and rich desserts, and spending even more time and energy trying to resist eating them??
Well, I have totally dropped that obsessive thinking since seeing you, it's quite amazing. I no longer feel like my head is full of images of rich sweets I know aren't good for me; even when I test the boundaries of my desires for them, to see if I can conjure those images up, it just doesn't work, it's like the images are slippery and I can't get a grip on them.
They simply aren't on my radar any more.
You had also said that the results would get even stronger over time and I have noticed that as well. I am extremely pleased!! Thank you so much.
Thank you again for all your help, it was all a great experience.
After 24 years of drinking alcohol,mainly beer on a daily basis for the reason of stress relief and to wind down from extremely physical work it started a life time habit that I could not get off by means of normal ways such as doctors drugs or trying by myself as I seemed to fall back to the habit rather quickly.The alcohol was becoming a rather exspensive habit and also I was gaining weight and not to mention health issues as well.
I had read for years about Hypnotherapy and was rather interested in the process.I am a believer in the power of the brain and human body but I am rather a different believer as I am a skepic as well until it either happens to me or I have 100% evidence.
So the decision was made all by myself to stop this never ending habit and I decided that most of my problems with alcohol was in my mind.
This is when I decided that Hypnotherapy would be a good choice and I then contacted Ron Thompson of Nanaimo Hypnotherapy Centre.I phoned Ron and he was so ever helpful in setting up my first appointment with him.On my first appointment Ron made me feel very safe and relaxed.He handled my problem with great expertise and was truly a great help.If you ever want someone to help you with your mind this man is the greatest and has such a wonderful voice whilst in the Hypnotherapy session.
Within the first week after my session I found it rather easy to resist any tempations of alcohol and seemed to breeze through the week.My second session was even better than the first and that is a big ask as the first one was so great.Ron brushed up on a few issues and that was that all done.It has been now a month of no alcohol which is the longest period of my life I have never had any alcohol.I have what so ever no desire to have a beer again.I have lost weight and now have a new vest for life not to mention more money in my wallet.This Hypnotherapy is truly the real deal and to convert a very stubborn man like me into a non drinker is nothing more than a mircale.
I strongly urge anyone who needs some help in any part of your life to make an appointment with Ron and your life will change.I am truly thankfull to Ron and wish him all the best with his patients as he will be an assest to all humans on earth.
