Ewan McGregor, movie star and international heart throb, says he is having a generally better life after quitting smoking because of the peace of just relaxing and not having to hunt for cigarettes, ashtrays and lighters.
He said: "The idea of life without cigarettes is terrifying, but it’s so much better… and it’s so easy – you just don’t smoke. I found the most annoying thing about cigarettes – apart from the fact that they give you emphysema and cancer and it makes you stink and not have any money, and you have to stand outside in the snow, and all of those things – is that you couldn’t do anything without them.
"I couldn’t stand the fact that I couldn’t just sit down – I’d have to go and find my cigarettes and, ‘Where’s my ashtray and my lighter?’ I’d always be looking for things… Now I can just sit down."
McGregor is confident that others can also quit smoking since he has been able to and added, "I did it as a second profession; I used to act and smoke."
While success rates vary between sixty to eighty percent from peer reviewed studies on the use of hypnosis to stop smoking, it is very clear from the research that hypnosis is the single most effective method to kick the habit, far higher than everything else, including cold turkey, willpower, nicotine replacement gum, and other methods.
If you are in Taiwan, I do offer hypnosis sessions to help folks in their journey to stop smoking. I also have audio CDs available. Just go to my webpages at http://www.briandavidphillips.com and take a look around.
