Giving Up

Today I am grateful for giving up. I’m not normally a quitter, or endorse throwing in the towel, but in this case I gave up smoking.

It’s been 12 months today since I stopped, and the only thought I have about it now is that I wonder why I didn’t do it sooner? It really was such an empowering decision to make.

For anyone who’s interested in the how, I had one session of hypnotherapy then stopped cold turkey, and I’ve never felt inclined to pick one up since.

As a reminder I have an app on my phone called ‘Since I Quit’, which calculates not only the length of time that’s passed, but the number of cigarettes I haven’t smoked, and the amount of money I’ve saved. Currently it says I haven’t smoked 2923.5 cigarettes which has saved me $2631.15.

  1. This is great! I had no idea there was such a cool app. 🙂 Can I share this blog post on my blog? I’m hoping to connect with more people who have had positive experiences with hypnosis in order to build a social network of sharing and success. Thanks!


    • Hi Gabrielle, You’re very welcome to share a link to this blog post on your own blog! Hypnosis worked beautifully for me and I’d be happy to shout that from the rooftops for anyone that’ll listen 🙂 I also think having a positive reminder of my choice (the app) has played a part in my success.
      Good luck with spreading the word!

    I came across this blog post about giving up smoking and thought it was great! I asked Kylie’s permission to reblog her post and share info on the phone app called “Since I Quit” which helped her stay on track. Thanks Kylie!! 🙂 Hypnosis Works!
