Both my sons stopped smoking after one hypnotherapy session (�100)
I looked into it for other reasons but it was very expensive if you need several sessions.

Things to be aware of before choosing hypnotherapy.
1. It can only work if the subject is 100% committed to making it work.
2.Its not a good idea to undergo hypnotherapy whilst still using or abusing the drug to which one is addicted.
3.Choose your hypnotherapist wisely - There are many of them , there are very few rules surrounding their qualifications, ability or conduct.
4. They can be an expensive route to breaking an addiction, with session costs of �25-�50 or more.

Anecdotally, i have an ex -wife who claimed hypnotherapy removed her arachnophobia - but the phobia did come back over time. I also have an acquaintance who is a hypnotherapist, who has had a lot of success with smoking cessation - but she has had quite a few failures too.
If you are in the UK, I would recommend visiting your GP for a chat first, about the NHS options open to you - much cheaper, and with more support available to you.
It worked for my daughter but not my son. It also worked for my sister-in-law but she thought it more likely that she wouldn't want to think she'd wasted her money!
it sounds so easy it should be on the nhs - �100 versus �1000s in cancer treatment ... a snip ... I wonder why they don't already do it?

breaking an addiction requires commitment - that comes from within - everyone can pause - but without commitment - the cycle returns - more important is why the addiction is there -- you have to remove the cause - friends - or whatever
It all depends how badly you want to stop what your addicted too.
The sub conscious mind is very powerful.
Some great books on the subject
