Based on hypnosis - follow the instructions in this 2 section recording and like me you may quit. The 2 sections can be listened to interchangably or together. I have previously quit for longer periods of time, always with aids of some kind (patches, nicotine gum, etc.) but I always felt like a smoker who just weren't smoking. For the first time in 20 years I can truly say: I'm a non-smoker. Even being around others who smoke doesn't bother me at all!
I was a little concerned about getting this because that snobby brit's review busted on Glenn Harold's accent. In fact, I'm from California and I find his tonality and pronunciation to be quite mellifluous. Overall, it's an extremely well-produced piece of self-hypnosis that helped me quit (finally) and also gain greater control of my mind in general.
This really works. I smoked a pack a day for 18 years and this made me quit cold turkey. I was terrified of the cravings, but I didn't even use my nicotine gum, since the breathing exercise he gives satisfies the craving. Now, every time I say, "I don't smoke" I become happy and more determined than ever to stop smoking forever (That is one of the hypnotic suggestions). More than a month smoke free and I'm looking to buy another one of his recordings.
I purchased this audiobook being very skeptical of how well it would work (if at all). I had read many various reviews on it on several websites before making the decision to purchase. It seems as though the main complaint is the man's Cockney accent, which my husband (who is British) found irritating as well (and compared it to Dick Van Dyke's character in Mary Poppins trying to hypnotize you). Myself, as an American, born and raised here, I found nothing wrong with his accent - to me it made no difference what part of the UK he was from, because the recording actually WORKED and his voice didn't make me the least bit irritated.
The only parts that were annoying to me was the 80's style synthesizer music (UGH!! Get a symphony or something), and the rapid pace of the recording - he could have slowed his speech a bit, and taken more time to get the user into trance.
With that being said, I listened to it the first night I purchased it at night when I went to bed. The next day, I didn't think it had done much, or at least I didn't NOTICE anything out of the ordinary. So I listened to it the second night...and I started noticing that I had NO desire for a cigarette (I was a smoker for 14 years), and like he makes you say in the recording - The smell of cigarette smoke repulsed me! I thought the "repeat after me" bits on the tape were a bit hokey, but they really work.
I recommend this recording to anyone trying to quit smoking, however it will ONLY work if you really WANT to quit smoking, with no doubts in your mind. Good luck!!
I have not had luck in the past with hypnosis. However this program was instantly successful for me.
I have been trying to quit smoking for years. I would make it a week at the most. This time I quit New Years Eve. I listened to the program New Years Day and have not had even a craving. This time I am not trying to use my willpower but I act as a non smoker. I am now ordering Glenn's audio for weight loss!
It really works! The morning after listening to this session I had no desire to smoke! Furthurmore, one of my coworkers lit up a cigarette and it smelled awefull. Totally disgusting. I never experienced any physical withdrawal, which is amazing, and I have not had the slightest urge to smoke since my initial listening nine days ago. There is no easier way to quit smoking, period
I found this tape very helpful. I do listen every day. Although I have not completly stoped smoking I have cut back from a 2 pack aday to half a pack. I have smoked for over 40 years and for me to cut back this much and not miss the amount I was smoking is realy great. I think as long as I listen ever day I will completly quite. Thank you for making this tape...
Just get a tape recorder, put on one of those 'listen to the waves and relax' albums..and repeat over and over in as monotone voice as you can. "I don't smoke. I don't smoke. I don't smoke." Or close your eyes and say "There's no place like home, there's no place like home".
I quit smoking ONLY after I quit listening to this worthless drivel. But to each his own... so if you get your inspiration from going to sleep and letting somebody pump stuff into your head via repetition... then buy this book by all means." If there were a way to transfer licenses, I'd sell my for a dollar... but, then I wouldn't be able to sleep at night knowing I'd charged so much.
If you want to quit...this isn't the way.
i bought it yesterday, and just hear it twice... yesterday i smoked twenty or more... today just five... i'll keep hearing it... good sound, good speach...
For a first pass this can be initially inspiring, but when you are quitting smoking you need more. A lot more. I understand the need for repetition, but there are many facets to stopping such a horrific addiction and I didn't feel this covered mind, body and soul and affirmations that can carry you through the long haul. Mr. Harrold's technique is flawless, which warranted the rating of 2, but lacked significantly in substance with respect to kicking an addiction and all that it entails.
I have been using this audiobook for 2 weeks and have not smoked since 25th Feb 2008, after continuously smoking for 46 years. I had given up on giving up! A Daily session with this recording as part of my quit program, has convinced me totally that not only have I given up smoking, but that I will never smoke again. I would urge anybody who wishes to give up to commit to this wonderful recording. I find it astonishing that someone like me could benefit so quickly and effectively from the messages and affirmations contained on the recording.
