On my way home after my session on Saturday I thought that this is too easy, how can this change 17 years of smoking. I kept my cigarettes in my bag, because at the time I didn’t feel like a cigarette, so I was waiting to feel like one.
Well it’s now been 5 days since my last cigarette and I still have not felt like one so I have thrown the packet away and I feel great!
Thank you for helping me quit smoking after it’s been a full part of my life for 17 years! It’s amazing! So simple but yet so powerful!
Have a good day!
I just wanted to drop you an email to say thank you.
It’s been just over a month since we came to see you and we have not looked back. Both Gary and I are now happy non-smokers. I personally am amazed with the outcome and very impressed with how well it worked. It’s hard to believe it was so easy.
I really believe in your method as it’s made a huge difference in the way Gary and I live and enjoy life.
I have been recommending you to everyone who is willing to listen and even those who aren’t.
Thank you once again from the both of us.
Sunette and Gary
More than one month has passed….and guess what?…….no craving, no side effects…..no nothing!
I feel great and my wife can’t believe it.
Thank you, and I will promote you accordingly!
Well you will be happy to hear that I have still not smoked since I saw you so I am most grateful for all you did.
I do have to confirm though that at no time during the session was I hypnotised in any way, I was fully conscious while you were chatting to me, it was all very soothing and helpful. I can’t remember when I came to see you maybe end May or possibly some time in June? In which case it has been about 8 weeks!
I just wanted to let you know that the session we had, has had such a huge impact on my attitude to smoking that I haven’t even considered having one since then.
It’s been hugely effective and I appreciate the effort you put into researching my specific situation.
Thanks very much!
We just want to say a big thank you for your help.
I smoked for 22 years and Leon smoked for about 28 years or so. We thought we would never be able to stop, as we had tried stop smoking gum and prescription pills, to no avail, but your method worked from the moment we walked out of your office.
People that knew us, as smokers, are amazed and we find ourselves telling colleagues, friends and family how we did it and they cannot believe that it was that easy. Well, we must admit, we also didn’t think it was that easy a month ago when we drove to your office – all I kept thinking was how hard this will be and we must just stay motivated, but it wasn’t difficult at all!
The first few days we would chat to each other and tell each other whenever we had had a ‘moment’ – a situation that would remind us that that would’ve been a time we would’ve lit up. Also, when the actual desire would arise to light one, we would just do the breathing exercise like you explained and yes, that definitely helped – but those moments would be far and few apart. Now, a month later, we have to remind ourselves that we even smoked – how funny is that! All our friends are proud of us!
Again, thank you very, very much for all your help – now we look forward to a healthy and fuller life!
Thank you, Craig.
Debby & Leon
Just to let you know that today is one week since I came to see you and I have not had a cigarette or wanted one.
Thank you again for your help and I will definitely recommend you to family, friends, etc.
Things are going well.
The second session was incredibly powerful. I just stopped instantly with very little desire to smoke at all. There were very few cravings and I did not have to use very much willpower at all.
Occasionally, I have really wished I could have a quiet cigarette, but it has been pretty easy to just close the door again and change my attention to something else.
I am hugely grateful to you for this!!
Whatever you did in that session… if you could package it in a bottle, you would make a huge difference in the world.
I actually can’t believe that I’m not smoking anymore and neither can a lot of other people!
Once again, thank you for the help!!
Just would like to thank you, its been over a month and still haven’t had a cigarette.
Was quite sceptical when I came to see you, but am shocked and surprised that I haven’t had one. When I think about having one, it passes quickly. The breathing really helps a lot. It gets easier and easier as the days go by.
Have given quite a few surprised people your details.
I trust that you are doing well? I am doing fantastic!!!
My sleeping pattern is back to normal and I am a different person, thank you so much! You did mention that you can also assist with weight loss, as I mentioned to you, I am really struggling to get rid of the last 10kg of the 14kg that I picked up the last time I tried to stop smoking with willpower. I could really do with your help. I have also given your contact details to a couple that also want to stop smoking.
Have a great day
This last session was the last. Despite a fair amount of stress in my life, I sailed right through and past the odd stray thought of smoking and on day four I am totally happy with the result.
Many thanks for your patience and belief in what you do.
I’ve been “smoke-free” for 70 days and it’s a fabulous feeling and state of being.
The first few days were a little hard to get through, but they passed and before I knew it I was 2 weeks down the road of not being a smoker anymore.
I feel free, finally, for the first time in years, and all is good.
Thanks again for the awesome session, it’s been over two months and I’m still clean!!!
Thanks once again.
I trust you are doing well.
I wanted to send you an email to tell you what a difference you have made in our lives. Both my now husband, Gary, and I had our session with you in May.
We got married in June and fell pregnant in September. We are now more than a year smoke free and have a little bundle of joy, which would never have happened if we were still caught in that horrible trap.
I am eternally grateful for what you’ve done for us. We have an entire new, better life thanks to a few minutes spent with you.
All the best,
I sent my father to you in December last year, and would like to thank you as he has yet to pick up a cigarette. 🙂
You are a champion.
Thank you kindly.
It’s been one week smoke free and I feel amazing!
Thank you so much for everything. I’ve been passing your contact details around so hopefully we’ll have fewer smokers in the world soon 🙂 Hope you are well. Have a great day and thanks again.
Writing this email took longer than I planned. I think a part of me kept wanting to wait till I reached a milestone. And then when I reached it I was surprised and thought “Better wait and see first” ha-ha
But Craig, it’s been 1 month and 11 days since I had a cigarette. I remember crying in your office when you offered me one and subconsciously feeling really sad to lose my “best friend”. I honestly thought at first that I was saying no out of politeness! I even tried to smoke that night but my mouth wouldn’t “work”!
Instead in these 42 days I have started Muay thai training, running and belly dance, gave up caffeine and bread and feel better than I have in at least 8 years. From pack a day smoker for 17 years to runner in 42 days!
I do still think about smoking. The emotional connection was strong! But each time I successfully make it through a trigger I feel even stronger.
I can’t thank you enough. Your method works!
I am another of your success stories. You helped me stop smoking after one session in June and I don’t think I have ever bothered to thank you, because to begin with I didn’t think I would last, but I have, so thank you.
How are you? I’m fine! Without smoking since Friday. Happy!
I like to know if it’s possible we have another session for the sleep pills? Can email or write to me a MSN!
Palo Alto, Brazil
I trust you are well. Gareth has been a non-smoker since seeing you. So easy and painless it was for him that I just stopped like he had.
So a BIG THANK YOU – what a wonderful life it is without that nonsense!
I just wanted to give you an update since seeing you in July. Well, it has been 8 weeks now and I have not smoked one cigarette nor have I even wanted to smoke a cigarette.
I would like to thank you so much for giving me the tools to be able to quit. I seriously wasn’t convinced about the whole hypnosis thing, but have found it to be a very powerful experience all-round.
Thank you so much for everything and I will keep you updated.
Wanted to let you know… its almost 2 months now and NO SMOKING!!!!!!!
Thank you so much!
I came for a stop smoking session in June this year. Since then I have stopped smoking, aside from a few initial cravings during social situations, I have completely stopped.
I was wondering if you do any other therapy? And whether or not you could help me get over my failed relationship faster, so that I can get on with my life, and move forward in a meaningful way?
Thanks in advance
Just to give you some feedback. I’m now on day 8 and feeling good. I’m still just getting used to the habit of not smoking, but found a box of cigarettes at home and wasn’t tempted at all.
Been having a few glasses of wine, without smoking, and feeling good.
Thanks for all your support.
Thought I would just follow up with you about my first day. It went very well and I feel unusually calm.
I have been doing the breathing exercises that you taught me. I have also been experiencing the anxious feeling on and off throughout the day, which I assume is normal, but the main thing is I still have NOT touched or felt the urge to light up a cigarette!
It’s also a lot easier then I expected to say NO when my family around me smoke or offer me one.
I just wanted to say thank you for helping me with this, I will refer anybody to you. It’s really brilliant!!
Have a good evening.
Still smoke free. I did do the breathing exercises, as you suggested.
I think the craving I mentioned is more of a thought association. I sometimes think of having a smoke break, but then when I actually think about it I breathe and tell myself how stupid it would be to smoke again and then I’m fine.
So all in all doing OK I think.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
I am very happy with the result from our session, thank you! No cravings, however the occasional thought still lingers, but so far so good and I am feeling better every day.
Not sure if you remember me, I met with you for a smoking hypnosis session during December. Anyway it definitely worked and I haven’t smoked a cigarette since our session.
I wanted to enquire about a session for alcohol. I remember you mentioned that you had just helped someone with that back then.
Please let me know if this is something that you could help with.
For the most part, we’re okay. I must also say that the process definitely feels manageable and considerably easier than the acupuncture etc.
I’m hugely anxious and stressed about work, but I don’t feel like I need to smoke through it. I think Sam might be struggling a bit more.
I got your message and discussed it with Sam. Thanks so much for making yourself available.
He says that he’s feeling much stronger and he’s doing ok. I’m sure he will contact you if he needs further help.
Thanks again for your support and assistance!
Day 14 of being a non-smoker and all’s well.
Thanks for your help.
Since my session last week Thursday I have had a stressful few days. Have had no urge to smoke a cigarette and feeling very energetic.
One year today and still off the cigarettes!
Sorry!! I misdialled your number. I was giving your number to a friend. Nearly 10 months without a cigarette!!!
Many friends of mine have tried to quit smoking using willpower, nicotine patches or even anti-depressants. Recently I recommended that a friend of mine try quitting with the help of hypnosis. As Hypno-smoking was a client of ours it seemed like a no brainer to give Craig a call.
Overcoming the actual physical addiction to nicotine may be relatively easy and may only take a few days; while stopping the deeply ingrained habit of smoking is far more difficult and usually takes years. Hypnosis may be an effective way of giving up smoking by accessing the subconscious mind and reinforcing the message of wanting to be a healthy non-smoker.
Although this may sound rather esoteric, most smokers serious about giving up smoking surely would like to make this transition as easy as possible and should therefore consider the help of hypnosis. In a nutshell it has been 6 weeks and my friend is still not smoking…

I thought I would give you some feedback. I still have not smoked so I am officially a non-smoker. I am feeling so healthy it is unbelievable. I have so much energy.
I spoke to my mother about you. She might be giving you a call soon. I joked with her that now that I have stopped smoking, it makes her the only smoker in the family.
Thank you so much for your help.
All the best.
Just wanted to let you know that I am still a non-smoker. It is just over a month now and I am really starting to feel the benefits. The first week after our session I was a bit dazed and confused – but now things are going well. Thanks so much – I have given your number to many people already.
Much thanks and regards
It has been over two months since my session with you and I am happy and proud to say the habit has been kicked for good. If only I had known about Hypno-smoking sooner. Thank you very much for your professional service, I am recommending you to everyone I know that would like to kick the habit as well.
Thank you for what you have done. I feel great and am so scared this wonderful great feeling won’t last……….I am free of that dreadful demon.
I just wanted to let you know. I have also referred a few people to you.
Have a great day.
I am doing so well, I stopped smoking and never looked back. In fact, I have referred my friends to you too.
So, thank you very much, I am very grateful.
I hope this email finds you well. Since my session with you, I have not had a cigarette and I do not suffer the cravings for any either. However, I do still feel like I miss certain cigarettes that I used to have, “the important ones”. So trying to find something else to replace them has been a bit difficult. It feels like I want one, because I miss it, but I cannot seem to bring myself to actually do it. Does that make sense? So I am in a catch twenty-two, but I know better than to pick one up and light it.
I am very fortunate to have a boyfriend that also decided to quit the same day as my session to support my decision to quit. That unfortunately has led to unnecessary arguments and short tempers, as he has all the cravings that I do not seem to have. I have suggested countless times for him to book a session with you, to help him with his cravings, but like you said, it’s a decision one has to make on their own (I hope he makes it soon, he’s driving me mad).
Lastly, I would like to thank you for the help that you offered and for the session. I was terribly nervous about giving up control, but you made it very easy to take the step, so thank you. I have passed around your details, and my experience, in hopes that you will be able to help more and more people give up a horrible, unhealthy habit.
Thank you again.
I trust you are well? This is just a quick note to express my gratitude for your help and to let you know that things are going very well.
There’s this weird scenario where I’m struggling to completely trust the peace, but the fact is that I’ve been nowhere near smoking since I left your office. I feel wonderful, and on the few occasions that I’ve thought about smoking, I’ve dealt with it with great ease thanks to the breathing technique you prescribed.
Thanks again, take care.
I thought it was time for a quick update for you. It has been 18 days and I have not had a cigarette. I find it surprisingly easy. There are days that I think about possibly maybe just having one, then I snap out of it and realise that it’s rubbish that I don’t need.
Thank you very much for helping me to change my life.
I hope you are well. I am well and enjoying life as a non-smoker, it’s amazing. I have a few friends and colleagues I have already referred, but are still reluctant to book an appointment with you, as they want to “enjoy” smoking a bit longer. They are still in awe of my achievement, as they know what type of committed smoker I was.
Thank you once again for your awesome service, I’m living proof that it works!!!
Keep well and chat soon.
Going strong so far and exercising every day without any cravings.
Thanks for a professional session.
I must admit I was sceptical at first to try hypnosis, after trying so many other methods. Whatever you did has worked and I cannot thank you enough for changing my life. In view of this, I will definitely recommend you to all those that I know who want to stop smoking. I feel so different already. My breathing is better, and my colour… I’m actually pink and not yellow. (LOL)
All I can say to you is thank you so much for changing my life.
This Saturday coming will be 10 weeks for being smoke free and still going strong. I have my days, and I do still think about it sometimes, but now I can resist it.
I’m still going strong, haven’t smoked since the Hypnosis session. Thanks for all you have done for me I’m grateful.
All my best
Just a thank you-note for helping me quit smoking.
It’s been 3 months after our session and I’m still a non-smoker. Being healthy is the best present I could have given myself.
Every now and then a very tiny craving hits me out of the blue, but then I just do the breathing and swoosh thing and it’s gone again quicker than it came.
So, thank you for giving me the tools for this.
Just wanted to send a quick note to say that I think Tuesday’s session was fantastic. I am already feeling much better.
All the best,
Thanks so much for the session and just to let you know that I am still smoke free, the breathing is helping me! My husband has said that he would also like to come and see you, I have copied him into this email. Thanks once again! So happy to be smoke free!
I’m on at day 8 and completely smoke free!!! Thank you thank you thank you! It has been so much easier this time round after the Parts Therapy. Feeling fantastic and making better decisions about everything. It seems like all the little parts have come to an agreement and are after the same thing. Been doing my breathing exercises and when a small craving has reared its ugly head I’ve breathed easily through it. I think I might just be smoke free for life… Finally I believe it.
Thank you so much!
Happy New Year! Many thanks for not only putting an end to my smoking, but my wife quit the afternoon after I saw you and we have been smoke free since September, too boot we have completed our first two long-distance trail runs and will be tackling our first multi-day stage race in May. It feels great to be a non-smoker and I am dead sure it would not have been possible without your help!
Wishing you a successful year ahead!
Just to let you know that the penny dropped yesterday, hooray!!!! As soon as I woke up, I just knew that I was a non-smoker instead of a smoker trying to give up.
On Tuesday afternoon after lunch we carried on socialising back at ours and I have to say I was panicking on the drive back as this would normally be the time I would be looking forward to getting home for a cigarette (as I never took them out with me) and I was. I was so angry with my husband and my sister in law for not making it easy for me to just light up.
Then yesterday I never even thought about anything to do with smoking or quitting. In the evening we met up with friends in a smoking bar, I had a cigarette in my bag just in case and like the day before, that situation would have been a trigger, but I was absolutely fine, nothing registered. One of our smoking buddies was smoking close by, it was not a problem, nothing registered.
I am so excited, I feel like I have been reborn. I feel so confident and so free and so strong. Thank you Craig.
I truly believe that the telephonic support was vital to my success. When you reassured me that the session had worked and that my initial struggle was something else entirely, which you helped me with as well, I had belief in what you were telling me. Without the after support I would have been confused and just accepted that it hadn’t worked and gone back.
I hope you are well. I just wanted to give you some feedback after Christo and my session with you in February. Since then we have not touched a cigarette and are extremely happy to be non-smokers.
You mentioned you were busy with a weight loss program. Could you perhaps share some info regarding this?
Hope all is good on your side of the world. I am happy to let you know that the second session has been successful and I am well on my way! I still have the occasional thought about smoking, but it’s becoming less and less and I can manage it quite easily.
Thank you for your support with this process, I appreciate it and I am delighted with the outcome.
Have a wonderful weekend.
I heard about your success rate with getting people to quit smoking from my GP. Please advise the cost of the session, as I am willing to give it try.
Thanking you in advance,
Hope you’re well… Just wanted to let you know that I’m doing well!!! Today is day 5 as a non-smoker. I’m so strong in the days, but I’m still having a few battles at night.
It’s like the trigger of sitting outside on my deck having a cigarette at the end of the day is so strong! I almost feel like something is missing, like I haven’t finished my day properly! Do you think I should have a follow up with you?
Today is day 9 and I’m strong! I’m feeling great and I’m loving the freedom of being a non-smoker.
The thing I’ve noticed is how much more time I have in the evenings. I do still think about that last cigarette of the day, but I absolutely know that I’m not going to have it…
Hope you’re very well…
I trust you are well and busy. I just wanted to touch base and let you know how things are going. I came to see you a month and almost 2 weeks ago and I am NO LONGER A SMOKER…yeah!
Are you able to assist me with weight loss as well?
Look forward to hearing from you.
It’s been two weeks since I saw you so thought I’d let you know that I’m handling pretty well. I’ve had the occasional craving, but found the deep breathing helped a lot.
Do you have any colleagues in JHB you could recommend? My mother in law would also like to stop smoking.
Thanks – have a super day
Just to let you know that I am doing so well after the session yesterday. I was weirdly emotional and tearful last night, but am much better today.
My mom is a smoker and is staying with me for two weeks and I feel no interest whatsoever to join her in a smoke.
Day 9 and going well!! Have passed your name on to quite a few people…
Marina Da Gama
We made it to day seven. Claudette and I have been each other’s support and it has been going great.
There have been times when the thoughts were there to smoke, but strangely it just disappeared.
The breathing exercise has been absolutely amazing. So thank you from both of us.
Iolanthe and Claudette
1 month down. Would occasionally like a smoke, but fortunately I’m not interested in getting back into that habit! It’s actually quite easy.
For the first time I am aware of the dangers and I refuse to put myself through that again!
22 weeks down! Feeling great! I have a friend who needs help… he drinks too much… can your magic help or is it only smoking related?
Thanks again Craig
I came to see you quite some time ago because I wanted to stop smoking. I am very happy to say that I have never touched a cigarette since that day and can’t imagine ever smoking again.
I am struggling with my weight and seem to eat anything and everything that is not good for me.
I wanted to know if you also did hypnosis for overeaters?
I came to see you just over a month ago and am happily not smoking cigarettes anymore.
Can I please book another appointment with you to sort out my marijuana habit some time next week?
Just to let you know it worked. It’s been pretty easy actually. My wife would like to make an appointment. Do you have anything available for next Friday?
First Ramadan without smoking! What a pleasure!
Hope you are well. All good on the no smoking side! Thanks very much! It’s good to be free!
