StopSmokingOn January 27, 2009, I was blessed with the most beautiful granddaughter you have ever seen.  As I held this beautiful little girl, I came to the realization that I needed to be around to watch all of her 1st's – first birthday, first day of school and so on and so on. Being a smoker of over 30 years, I realized that one of the best things I could do to help ensure this was to quit smoking.  I chose my quit date of May 1st, a date that to me sounded like spring and new beginnings and I called A+ Hypnosis and scheduled my appointment.  Then I worried and contemplated how I was going to do this.  I knew it was the right thing to do, but I really liked smoking and I wasn't completely sure I was ready to quit. I felt like I was losing my best friend. 

I went back and forth about keeping or cancelling this appointment as the date slowly crept up.  Finally on the morning of May 1st, I anxiously got into my car, still having quite the argument with myself and I drove to Omaha.  Skeptically, I went through the process, even telling myself as I went through this that it wasn't working, that I wasn't really feeling anything different, and I had just wasted my time.  WELL, I have not smoked since.  It was the easiest process I've ever gone through.  I went through no physical withdrawal at all, and only occasionally did I suffer from emotional withdrawal.  My husband chose to try to quit using medication at the same time I did hypnosis.  Within a few short months, he was back to smoking as much, if not more, than he had prior to this.  Even with the added temptation of living with a smoker, I have still managed to stay cigarette free.  I love that I no longer have to schedule my life around cigarette breaks and trying to hide that I smoke in a society that is not very accepting of this addiction.  When I look at my 2 1/2 year old granddaughter I am very thankful that I did not cancel this appointment and all the positive changes it has brought to my life.  My only regret is that my husband is too stubborn to try this.  In my opinion, A+ Hypnosis has earned an A+ in my book.
