The FAMOUS Stop Smoking Survey Results
In 1992 New Scientist Magazine published the results of an extensive Clinical Study on the most effective smoking cessation methods. It shows single session hypnosis increased a smoker's chance of success by 1000% from 6% to 60%.
SUCCESS RATES FOR DIFFERENT SMOKING CESSATION METHODS:
*. 60% - Single session hypnosis
*. 24% - Acupuncture
*. 10% - Nicotine Replacement Therapy
* 6% - Willpower alone
Hypnosis IS the most effective way of giving up smoking, according to the largest ever scientific comparison of ways of breaking the HABIT. Willpower, it turns out, counts for very little.
This research was carried out in 1992.
Frank Schmidt and research student C. Viswesvaran of the University of Iowa carried out a meta-analysis statistically combining results of more than 600 studies covering 72,000 people from America,Scandinavia and elsewhere in Europe and included 48 studies done into hypnosis covering 6000 smokers.
