5 Reasons Why You Need to Stop Smoking

Quit Smoking with Hypnosis

People smoke for many different reasons and there are also a lot more reasons why a person should stop smoking.

Why do People Start Smoking

Initially some people start smoking due to peer pressure because they don’t want to be different from their friends. Some people smoke out of curiosity. They want to know what it tastes like or what it feels like to smoke. Other people smoke because they think it makes them look cool.

Smoking has extremely negative effects on a person’s health and appearance. It not only affects the smoker, it also affects the people near them.

Why a person needs to stop smoking

1. Smoking has a great negative effect on your health

Smoking can lead to lung cancer and other chronic lung problems which could lead to a slow and painful death. It can cause extreme damage to other body organs such as the heart or the whole cardiovascular system. Smoking can also lead to other types of cancer such as throat cancer. At whatever angle you want to see it, smoking doesn’t have any good help to a person’s health condition.

2.During pregnancy

There are several harmful effects of smoking during pregnancy. When an expecting mother inhales tobacco smoke from a cigarette, some of the chemicals are exhaled immediately and leave the body, but others stay in the body and make their way into the placenta. There are a lot of possible pregnancy complications that have been associated with women who smoke. Ectopic pregnancy, foetal death, miscarriage, still birth and more commonly premature birth are just a few examples.

3. Smoking can cause impotence.

Impotence is a problem among men characterized by consistent inability to sustain erection that is sufficient for a sexual intercourse. Smoking can damage the blood vessels supplying blood to the penis and cause them to degenerate. Nicotine narrows the arteries that lead to the penis, reducing blood flow and the pressure of blood in the penis. This can then result in impotence.

4. Social disadvantages may also be brought by smoking.

Smoking stains the teeth and gums which can result in an unsightly smile. Smoking increases the risk of periodontal disease, which causes swollen gums, bad breath and teeth to fall out. These are huge social disadvantages.

Second-hand smoke is dangerous to other people. Therefore, smoking is not allowed in many public places. The smoke coming from the cigarette inhaled by the person near the smoker can also cause the same health problems as experienced by the smoker themselves.

5. The Cost of Cigarettes is Very High

In countries such as Australia where the tax is very high on any type of cigarettes, people want to quit but are struggling to quit smoking. The money to buy cigarettes is reducing the quality of their lives which in turn impacts on the whole family. This in turn impacts on the mental health causing frustration, stress and possibly relationship problems.

Many people believe it is too hard to just suddenly stop smoking. It’s not supposed to be a one day or one month process. Some people go cold turkey and most become so irritable that their spouse, partner or friend become so fed up they often go out and buy a packet of cigarettes just to bring harmony back into the home.

It takes a lot of commitment, effort and dedication for a person to finally stop smoking. To increase your chances of success, you need to be motivated, have social support, an understanding of what to expect, and a personal game plan. The most effective system today is with Hypnosis and Neuro Linguistic Programming or NLP.

5 Reasons People Start Smoking

Quit Smoking and Help your Skin and Body

Quit Smoking and Help your Health and that of your family.

Starting to smoke is one of the most regretted actions of most smokers, especially people who have experienced serious health problems. Losing a loved one to smoking is also painful and sad.

Smoking is a Psychosocial Habit

While most people search the internet for information on how to quit smoking, finding out why people start smoking is also a worthwhile endeavor. This is because smoking is a psychosocial habit and in order to kick it, people need to identify and then address the root issues related to their smoking; they need to know why they started to figure out how they can stop.  Let’s take a closer look at five of the main reasons people start smoking.

Peer Pressure/Social Rewards

Many people light up their first cigarette as a way of connecting with others in a group. Cigarettes are an object that people socialize around, laughing, talking and forging or maintaining friendships.  It is important to note here that many people, teens and adults included, feel pressured to smoke, fearing they will not belong to a group and sometimes even being told so directly.

Parents

In terms of smoking, the apple often doesn’t fall far from the tree. When parents smoke, their children are much more likely to become regular smokers during adolescence and adulthood.  Children model the behavior of their parents and smoking is a very easy habit to pick up in this way.

Relief and Self-Medication

Many people start smoking as a way to relieve stress or as a distraction from personal problems they may be dealing with: depression, anxiety, relationship issues, work issues, and paradoxically even health issues.

Weight Loss

Many people believe that smoking is the fast track to weight loss, since cigarettes very often suppress one’s appetite.

Advertising

Although the strength of tobacco advertising has diminished in recent years, smoking is still portrayed as a glamorous, daring activity that many people want to try and the advertising media is a powerful tool for perpetuating these beliefs.

Above are the most common reasons why people develop a long-term tobacco habit. But there is a common theme behind all of them.  Each fulfills a psychological or emotional need. Whether it is gaining a sense of belonging, a sense of security or tension relief, or a boost to the ego. People start smoking to strengthen or even fulfill an emotional aspect that is missing from their lives.

Given the psycho-emotional reasons behind smoking, quitting smoking is really about identifying why people start in the first place. One particularly helpful way of doing this is by trying out Quit Smoking Hypnosis. Quit smoking hypnosis employs the techniques of hypnotherapy for smoking cessation purposes and the powerful Neuro Linguistic Programming or NLP.  It helps people identify their core smoking issues and then assists them in re-learning and re-shaping their attitudes and emotions towards cigarettes and themselves so that they can give up the deadly habit. People may start smoking to meet a certain need, but they can learn to find fulfillment through healthier avenues with the help of Quit Smoking Hypnosis.

Quit Smoking is not always easy

Indeed that can be said of many people who struggle every day to quit. Remember when you first started smoking and it was so revolting. Then we persevered until we were hooked and enjoying it.

Depressed as he would like to quit

Depressed man smoking cigarette

Looking back there are many reasons why people smoke – peer pressure; parents smoked so it was a natural progression for yourself; loved the social interaction.

Are you a still smoking and either enjoying a cigarette or perhaps struggling to quit smoking?

Do you ever feel hurt or annoyed when you see people turn their noses up when they see or smell your smoking? You ask yourself, “How do they know how I feel?” Or more importantly, “It’s none of their business if I smoke. I can do what I like – it is my body.”

Or perhaps you are saying to yourself, “If only they knew how hard it is for me to quit smoking?”

Which phrase relates to you?

For some people, quitting smoking on their own is easy. On the other hand, it is one of the most difficult things they have ever had to do. Even quitting dope seems easy compared to quitting smoking.

People have often tried so many ways to quit – tablets, NRT or nicotine replacement therapy such as patches or sprays, cold turkey just to name a few. Yet they continue to smoke. Often feeling like a failure. Of course they are not a failure. This is what we call feedback. Smoking is frequently being classed as an addiction however it is more of a habit.

Where are our habits stored?

Our habits are stored in the unconscious mind.
So how do we change those habits? The most successful way to change those habits is with hypnosis. While a person is in that relaxed state of hypnosis the habits that have been stored there for years and years can be changed in one short session. Hypnosis is a trance like state where the person is relaxed and the therapist can speak to the unconscious mind.

So the question may be asked if hypnosis can help everyone.

As a rule yes as we are all in and out of trance throughout the day. There may be some people who may be challenged to be hypnotised.

With Quitting smoking or hypnosis in any therapeutic occasion, the most important requirement is for the person to want to let go of their habit. Hypnotherapists are not magicians although some people feel they must be due to the amazing changes people experience.

Can Smoking Cause Irritable Bowel Syndrome?

Can Quitting Smoking Cause Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Can Smoking Cause Irritable Bowel Syndrome Ambro / FreeDigitalPhotos.net

Many people fear quitting smoking for a variety of reasons. It will be too hard, it is impossible to quit, it will make socialising harder etc. However, many of the fears that people associate with quitting smoking are really just excuses; many people want to justify their habit by creating a litany of reasons why they can’t quit smoking.

What is Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

One such excuse that some people have come up with, but that is not grounded in truth, is that quitting smoking causes Irritable Bowel Syndrome. In fact, the reverse is true: smoking very often leads to a person developing IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome). Let’s take a closer look at IBS to understand what it is and its relationship to smoking.

IBS is an uncomfortable bowel disorder that comes with a variety of unpleasant symptoms:

  • Chronic abdominal pain
  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation
  • Cramping
  • Bloating
  • Nausea

IBS is a gastrointestinal disorder and the medical community has not pin-pointed one cause of the disease. It seems to be the product of many different types of activities from poor diet to smoking. People who suffer from IBS are generally in a constant state of discomfort which can then cause them to suffer mood swings.

Smoking both contributes to the development of and irritates  cases of IBS.

This is because cigarette smoke irritates the valves connecting the esophagus and the stomach as well as aggravating the lining of the stomach. Tobacco smoke has been linked to acid reflux, indigestion and other gastrointestinal disorders like IBS, so it can definitively be labeled as a contributing factor to IBS and other digestive problems.

So why do people believe that quitting smoking causes IBS?

There are a variety of reasons and some make sense and some don’t. However, many people falsely believe that quitting cigarettes causes IBS because of the discomfort that is experienced by people immediately after they quit smoking.

Some people who quit smoking may experience some form of digestive discomfort as their body learns to re-adjust to life without cigarettes especially if they go cold turkey. Heartburn, indigestion, nausea, constipation—these are all possible side effects of quitting smoking. However, these problems were originally caused by the cigarettes.

If people begin to experience digestive problems for longer than several weeks, they might want to consider other aspects of their lifestyle—such as diet and exercise—as roots of the problem, and seek medical attention accordingly.

So the long and the short of it is: quitting smoking does not cause IBS. Smoking disturbs the body (and may be the direct cause of IBS itself) and when a person stops smoking, then the body is still off kilter and takes some time to adjust to life without tobacco smoke. It should be mentioned here that quitting smoking with hypnotherapy usually has the opposite effect with people experiencing a reduction in heartburn or indigestion and the energy kicks in around day 4.

To assist with quitting smoking, reach out to a hypnotherapist who will step you through an easy and relaxed session so you can become a non smoker.

Quit Smoking Inspiration

Such excitment at now being a non smoker

Happy man feeling free from the habit of smoking

Quitting a bad habit is one of the most difficult things to do, especially smoking. It is  a physically and mentally destructive habit that leaves its mark on all systems of the body. For you, quitting smoking may seem impossible. However, with the right tools, determination, and inspiration, you can quit without ever wanting a cigarette again.

However, you really need all of those three things: Determination, inspiration, and the right tools. Quit smoking inspiration comes from within, and the smoker must be driven in order to feel inspired. Maybe their family is worried about their physical or mental health. Maybe they have a family history of heart disease and don’t want to exacerbate their risk by smoking. If an addict doesn’t have the will to quit the habit, nothing will make them. While smoking is more of a habit than an addiction, it will still be fairly difficult for most people. For some, the will to quit might be sudden, and for some others it may be more gradual.

The Right Tools to Help You Quit

 Once you find your personal inspiration and determination to quit, it’s time to find the right tools to put you on the right track.

Remember: To quit, you have to be ready to quit. If you still want to smoke while you’re quitting, you are less likely to become a permanent non-smoker and more likely to cycle through relapses.

Frequently speaking with another person who has quit with hypnosis certainly is quit smoking inspiration. Mary went to see Maureen Hamilton (Hypnotherapist) to quit smoking. At the end of her session (only one) she went off a happy non-smoker. Two weeks later her son called and said, “You got Mum off cigarettes after smoking for 44 years. So I need to come and see you too.” This chap was working at the local station as a policeman.  Needless to say he also went off as a happy non-smoker. So if you’re ready and truly committed, then hypnosis will change your life so you too can be a non-smoker.

What can hypnosis do for you?

 Hypnosis is the most unique tool to help you quit smoking. It is the only one that can help you truly believe you are a non-smoker, rather than a smoker who is suppressing his or her cravings with medicated treatment. For hypnosis to be effective in terms of quitting smoking, you must first find an accredited hypnotist, and then you must trust them, and trust yourself, that the hypnosis will work.

What is the Process to Quit Smoking with a Hypnotherapist

Before you meet with the hypnotherapist, he or she may speak with you to try and gather more information, and to see if you’re uncomfortable or unsure of the process. It is their job to make sure everything goes smoothly!

By the time you first visit your hypnotherapist, you two should have an action plan all ready to go. Just like no two people are the same, no two smokers are the same. Each smoker’s experience with a hypnotherapist will be different than the next.

The importance of following up

 Once you become a non-smoker, you will have a period of adjustment, even just in terms of your lungs. In order to help you cope with this and keep you on track, you need to follow instructions about your care following your session. Only you can be in control once you become a non-smoker.

Final thoughts

With a hypnotherapist, the hardest part about quitting smoking is finding your inspiration. Once you’re determined, you can work together with your hypnotherapist so that your future never includes another cigarette.

Whether or not you’ve tried other methods to quit smoking in the past, you can find fulfilling and permanent success in hypnosis.

Cigarette Prison: The Smoker’s Isolation

Very often, we think of smoking as a social habit; that is, smoking is something that people do to connect with others around them. But as smoking becomes more and more of a taboo—especially in the public sphere—many smokers are beginning to feel isolated and alone as they see their friends around them quit smoking one by one.

Depressed as he would like to quit

Depressed man smoking cigarette

Not so long ago, smokers were everywhere. On planes, in the office, at parties, in their beds reading at night. And even though Big Tobacco is still a multi-billion dollar industry world-wide, headway has been made in the effort to get people to quit smoking: In Australia, for example, the smoking ban in all enclosed public spaces makes it impossible to light up in bars and restaurants.

Smoking bans

These bans plus people’s awareness that smoking is deadly, have contributed to lower rates of smoking in some cases here in Australia. But the shadow side is that smoking is now a stigmatized activity. In today’s world, smokers are usually looked down on by non-smokers.

The Stigma Surrounding Smoking

This can lead many smokers to feel isolated and alone. Some even go as far as to engage in their habit in complete secrecy. Others worry that they will be shut out or mocked by friends, family and colleagues because of their dependency on cigarettes. As a result, many smokers become depressed and unsure of what to do—they want know they want to quit, but aren’t sure how. They just feel so alone.

The good news

Is that smokers don’t have to feel isolated. They can give up their smoking habits without being stigmatized. Quit smoking professionals, like those who employ quit smoking hypnosis, help smokers quit without feeling ashamed of themselves. Smoking cessation professionals help smokers empower themselves to kick their cigarette habits for good. With the guidance of a good quit smoking professional, smokers learn to value themselves and build self-esteem. With self-esteem comes the ability to be alone without feeling isolated as well as the ability to socialize without feeling stigmatized.

No smoker need ever feel isolated because no smoker is ever really alone. There is always help for those who need it—and help to quit smoking is no exception.

Smoking and Pregnant

Impact of smoking on kids

Quit smoking before it harms your kids!

Smoking used to be cool, the coolest thing you could do. Just watch an episode of Mad Men or turn on a Humphrey Bogart flick for proof—tobacco used to be the King of suave. These days cigarettes have lost their glitz and glamour. In most Western countries, smoking is frowned upon and is quickly losing is social acceptability.

How Does Smoking Affect the Unborn Baby

Just because something is stigmatized does not make it an anti-social behavior. Many smokers would still claim that smoking is an act of community during which people can socialize and make and maintain friendships. However, recent research has linked prenatal smoking to anti-social behavior in children. If this is true, it has wide-ranging consequences for our society since many pregnant women are exposed to cigarette smoke on a daily basis even if they have made the conscious decision not to smoke themselves.

Potential Issues Due to Smoking While Pregnant

According to a study published in the British Journal of Psychiatry, a “small but significant” link exists between maternal smokers and the development of ADHD and unruly behavior in their progeny. They speculate that this has to do with the reduction of oxygen to the fetus when mother’s smoke during pregnancy, which can damage brain development as well as other parts of the body. While this claim is still quite controversial (as many psychiatrists see ADHD and unruly behavior as phenomena engendered by socialization), it is still worth pondering. How many children and the lives of those around them, are negatively impacted by the fact that they were exposed to the over 4000 toxins present in cigarette smoke? We know how fragile fetal development is and we know what cigarettes do to adult bodies. So it isn’t that far of a stretch to see the link between maternal smoking and the development of anti-social behavior in children.

What Can You do for Your Unborn Child

If you are a smoker and are considering having children or are around pregnant women, then you should seriously consider the implications of your habit relative to the healthy development of the baby growing inside you or growing inside the women around you. Children are born into this world innocent and dependent and rely on the judgment of their parents for their health, development and safety. Children are a great incentive for you to find the will power to break the chains of your tobacco habit. There are many smoking cessation methods that can help you put out your last cigarette. One method worth looking into is hypnotherapy or hypnosis to quit smoking as it helps you change your beliefs and restructure your habits—it is never too late to create a new you!

Unfortunately when quitting smoking it is important to be focused on being a non smoker. So preparation is extremely important. Going cold turkey is painful and there is an emotional struggle. That’s because smoking is a habit and you are trying a break a habit built up over years and years. The unconscious mind is there to protect you emotionally as well as physically. So that habit is keeping you happy. So changing that habit is going against your unconscious mind making quitting very difficult. This is where hypnosis comes in. Hypnosis is an easy pleasant way to become a non smoker in just one session.

Why Quit Smoking is Hard

Depressed as he would like to quit

Depressed man smoking cigarette because quit smoking is hard.

Habits are hard to break. Like biting your nails or twirling your hair, smoking is a habit that becomes a nearly unconscious reflex. As you develop a smoking habit, your mind associates having a cigarette with getting settled in your car, having your morning coffee, or walking out of the office at the end of a workday. It becomes a subconscious habit. Quitting smoking is hard because, by quitting, you are forcing yourself to remove a habit out of your daily mindset.

Once you are a smoker, you do not continue to smoke because you truly want or enjoy every cigarette. You continue to smoke because smoking controls your life. It is automatic. This is why quitting smoking is so hard, but, as long as you’re truly ready, quitting smoking doesn’t have to be impossible.

The problem with physical treatments

People wonder why quit smoking is hard. Many people turn to physical solutions to help them quit smoking, whether those are nicotine patches, gums, or electronic cigarettes. These can help curb physical cravings, but the mental urge is still there. While using these treatments, you are still a smoker. It is common for smokers who have used these to pick up smoking again, either in the middle of treatment or shortly after quitting. Especially if you turn to using electronic cigarettes, you are replacing one habit with another. If long-term or life-long quitting is your goal, you may be looking for other, more permanent solutions.

How hypnosis is unique

Hypnosis is different. A good hypnotherapist can make you into a permanent nonsmoker after just one session. For a hypnosis session to be successful, though, you must be completely prepared. Perhaps the hypnotherapist will provide materials to fill out, listen to, or read before your session. Think of why you want to quit, why you started smoking in the first place, and why you have or haven’t tried quitting previously. You cannot have doubts while going into your hypnotherapy session—you must trust your hypnotherapist, and you must truly believe you will be a nonsmoker at the end of the session. You may have outside motivators to help you quit smoking, whether that is your family, friends, job, etc., but the most essential thing you can bring to your hypnosis session is your want to quit.

After hypnosis: Being a nonsmoker

Being a nonsmoker, of course, has its perks. But after so many years of smoking, suddenly quitting after just one hypnotherapy session can come as a shock to the body, especially the lungs. After all, you’re used to taking more deep breaths from inhaling cigarette puffs as a smoker. After your hypnotherapy session, your hypnotherapist should advise you to frequently perform deep breathing exercises. There is still a buildup of tar and other harmful chemicals remaining in your lungs, so modified breathing technique is essential to getting healthy lungs back. Practice deep breathing exercises whenever you’d normally have a cigarette, or several times a day.

With other methods, quitting smoking is hard, but with hypnosis and the true want to be a nonsmoker, it is possible after just one session.

Is There a Cure for Skin Cancer?

Ambro / FreeDigitalPhotos.net

Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in humans, and it affects millions of people across the globe every year. This cancer is caused by over-exposure to the sun, radiation, carcinogens, and aging.

Types of Skin Cancer

There are three types: basal cell carcinoma, melanoma, and squamous cell carcinoma. All three pose a serious risk to your health, but melanoma is the most dangerous.

How Can Skin Cancer be Detected

Skin cancer is relatively easy to detect because it comes in the form of skin discoloration and abnormally colored or shaped moles; indeed, most skin cancer victims discover their condition on their own just by examining their skin (however, a diagnosis can only be made by a doctor).

Since many people are desperate to maintain their golden brown tans year in and year out, skin cancer remains a potent threat to public health because most people are not willing to take the link between sun exposure and UV rays and the development of skin cancer seriously. Tanning is in and trendy, and people don’t like going against the aesthetic curve. However, being an avid sun bather does not automatically lead to skin cancer, and it isn’t the only cause.

What Else Causes Skin Cancer

Skin cancer can also be caused by damaging free radicals from carcinogens and the unavoidable effects of ageing. In act some research is being done on the effect of high level in diets. Still, the best method of avoidance is to stay out of the sun or use only a strong sunscreen when out in the sun. Keep in mind that the decreasing ozone layer makes it more and more dangerous to soak up UV rays on the beach.

Is There a Cure for Skin Cancer?

As with all forms of cancer, everyone wants to know: Is there a cure for skin cancer? Last year, a study conducted in the UK by researchers from Rush University Medical School in Chicago showed that a vaccine developed was able to completely cure 16% of those who used it and who were infected with advanced melanoma. For the rest of the group, the vaccine greatly improved the user’s chance of remission. This does not definitively prove that skin cancer can always be cured, but it makes curing it an option. In addition to pharmaceutical cancers medication, there are many topical ointments that have been shown to relieve skins cancer.

Cymilium, an over the counter insect bite remedy, has been shown to improve it’s symptoms, and a variety of natural remedies such as aloe vera and vitamin D are also used. If you have skin cancer, any course of treatment you undertake should be at least discussed if not approved by a doctor. However whether you are interested in natural medicine or pharmaceutical-driven medicine, the chances of completely curing your cancer are slim, so in that sense, both sides of the medical aisle are worth a try.

Does Smoking Cause Skin Cancer?

One of the causes of skin cancer is poor lifestyle including a sugar rich diet and/or smoking. So for smoking, you may have tried many times to quit smoking and perhaps you have stopped. However after a time you became stressed or you were having a drink and thought you would just have one puff. That is waking up the habit!

Unfortunately when quitting smoking it is important to be focused on being a non smoker. So preparation is extremely important. Going cold turkey is painful and there is an emotional struggle. That’s because smoking is a habit and you are trying a break a habit built up over years and years. The unconscious mind is there to protect you emotionally as well as physically.

5 Ways to Quit Smoking

5 Ways to Quit Smoking Hypnosis

5 Ways to Quit Smoking – Check the 5th way – Hypnosis

Making the decision to quit smoking is the first and most important step in quitting smoking. Some people can go cold turkey and not feel too many side effects.  This is often due to the fact they have made the conscious decision to stop smoking. However, most people feel extreme stress and sometimes anxiety when they try to quit.  This is due to the act that they are going against their unconscious mind to do something that has been doing it for so long. It is now a habit.

What are the 5 Ways to Quit smoking

1. Make a Plan and be Committed

Have you ever been on a holiday to say for example Fiji, made the decision and all of a sudden you were there. Now that doesn’t seem feasible does it. So planning is very important and is like most things. There needs to be a plan of how you are going to do it. Then there needs to be the date. This is usually followed by doing the research and finding out the best options.

2. How are you Going to Avoid those Cravings

Be prepared for the cravings and the discomfort of quitting. What can you do to avoid it? People often find that keeping themselves busy is a good start. Think about all the times you smoke eg, when you are bored, filling in time when you have nothing to do, after meals. So give some conscious thought about these times.

However the best way to do that is to make a list in one column of the times you smoke. Then in the right column list down what you can do instead. Keep adding to this list.

Start to affect change in your mind. Stand in front of a mirror and look at yourself smoking and see how ridiculous it looks allowing a little white object to control you so strongly.

Another thing you can do is save all your butts in a jar and every now and then open it and smell it and see how repulsive it is.

3. Avoid Those Times or Places When You Smoke

Perhaps you are smoking more frequently when you are with certain people or places. If it is with certain people, let those people know what you are doing. They will understand you will not be seeing them for awhile.

If it is certain places, then possibly the best thing you can do is stay away for a few weeks until you are well on your way or more comfortable with being a non smoker

4. Stay Positive and Seek Help

Sometimes it is a good idea to share with people your goal to become a non smoker. However on the other hand it can also work against you as they persist on asking you how you are going. Sometimes that in itself can be extremely annoying and enough to make you want to give up. Of course All you need is for someone to sympathise with you and that in itself can be a trigger.

5. Hypnosis

Would you like to quit without worrying about the cravings and other effects mentioned above. Well now you can, with hypnosis. With just one easy 2 hour session you can walk in as a smoker and out as a non smoker. The only thing that is required of you is the “want”. Hypnosis will not work for people unless they have the desire to quit. They cannot quit for someone else, it must be for themselves. People often make the comment that it is like magic. So easy and relaxing.
