Most smokers are spending thousands of dollars every year on cigarettes - according to the American Cancer Society, smoking cigarettes lead to the death of half of the people who use it. Smoking is the top preventable cause of death in the U.S., yet millions of people continue to smoke. The U.S. Center for Disease Control says that about 13% of Hawaii residents are tobacco users. If you’re ready to quit smoking, then Hawaii Hypnosis Center is here to help you quit. We charge one price, regardless of whether you stop on the first session or the second or the tenth. We call every non-smoker three days after the nicotine has left the body and confirm they are a non-smoker. If they need a follow up appointment there is no charge, for as long as we are in business (12 years so far).
There are many products and services out there claiming to help people quit smoking. It can be confusing if you’re a smoker trying to sort it all out. All of those statistics, figures, and even some outlandish claims. Hawaii Hypnosis Center has been serving clients on Oahu since 2006 and the best testament to our hypnosis smoking cessation system is the clients we’ve already helped quit smoking. If you haven’t run into one of our successful former smokers, then here are the two things we want you to know:
1) A study by the University of Washington School of Medicine in 2001 found that 90% of smokers who quit using hypnosis were still non-smokers at the 6 month mark. We encourage you to also do your own research about the success of smoking cessation programs. Call for your free phone consultation and we will share with you our Center's success rate because we call and track EVERY smoker that goes through our program. We can show you our client's results.
2) Am I just prolonging my addiction with nicotine? Ask yourself: What have I tried that has actually dealt with the reason that I smoke? What have I tried that replaces my old habit with a new healthy behavior that doesn't include nicotine?
If you’re still hesitant, there’s nothing wrong with feeling a bit of fear when you’re giving up something you’ve done for most of your life… and a majority of smokers have been smoking since their teenage years. Smoking can become like an old friend… but it’s a lousy friend. There’s nothing good in cigarettes - just cancer causing chemicals. We’ll show you how cigarettes have been lying to you about relieving stress, helping you relax, or coping with anything. They’re a bad friend and you deserve better.
You already know that you’ll save thousands of dollars when you stop smoking. You’ll also add years to your life when you quit smoking. You’ll pay less for life insurance and health insurance. You’ll get better value for your vehicles and your home as a non-smoker. You’ll also be more valuable in a job market where an increasing number of employers are refusing to hire tobacco users because of the added sick time, decreased productivity, and insurance costs. And you’ll be in control of your life - instead of being a slave to the smoking habit.
Tried and failed to quit smoking? When you quit smoking, it doesn’t have to mean difficult cravings. When you quit smoking it doesn’t have to mean short-tempered interactions with everyone around you. When you stop smoking it doesn’t have to mean replacing your bad habit with another bad habit or eating everything in site.

Why Choose One-on-One Hypnosis to Stop Smoking?
Hypnosis is safe, natural, and effective. Advanced one-on one hypnosis in a professional setting gives you the tools that you need to be successful. A mail-order program, audio, book, or a group hypnosis session can’t address the things in YOUR life that got you smoking and they can’t address the specific things that keep you smoking. By working individually with our Master Hypnotists, you alter your relationship with cigarettes. Not all hypnotists are specifically trained as Smoking Cessation Specialists. At Hawaii Hypnosis Center we have received advanced smoking cessation training and our Center has provided this program for over 12 years.
Results Using Other Methods Besides Hypnosis to Stop Smoking
Trying to stop smoking cold turkey using willpower alone is tough for most people - in fact, the success rate is generally between 6-11%. Your conscious willpower gets overwhelmed when you encounter stress. Nicotine replacement is only 10-20% effective in independent studies and while that may be double the success of willpower, it’s still not very good odds. When you add in side effects like nausea, indigestion, itching, and nightmares, the replacement can seem worse than the habit - and that’s not helpful. Zyban and Chantix also have relatively low success rates with some dangerous potential side effects. E-cigarettes have concerns over the unregulated and unlisted chemicals in many of the blends as well as E-cigs replace one bad habit with another one which isn’t the best choice. Listening to hypnosis audios alone takes self discipline which so far hasn't helped you quit smoking so why is it going to work this time?
Nothing to Fear and Everything to Gain
Hypnosis has been around for many years. The use of trance-like states and positive suggestion was an important feature of the early Greek healing temples. Today hypnosis is used widely in the U.S. in medicine, dentistry, law enforcement, professional sports, and education. The Mayo Clinic, American Cancer Society and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) all use hypnosis for pain management. Our experienced and trained Master Hypnotists are certified by multiple professional organizations. We have a professional office environment where you’ll find it comfortable and relaxing to change the way your mind thinks and feels about tobacco. You won’t be asleep or knocked out during the hypnosis process - you’ll remember everything and will be alert and awake. If you want to quit, we can help but don’t call if you’re not ready - a hypnotist can’t make you do something against your will. But if you have tried to quit and can't, give us a call.
How does hypnosis help you stop smoking?
Smoking is a habit and habits are controlled by the subconscious mind which is where hypnosis works. Through hypnosis you are able to make quitting smoking easy for you. Change the part of your mind that seems to “crave” tobacco. Change the part of your mind that still believes that nicotine is helping you - even though you consciously know that tobacco is only doing one thing, slowly killing you. Use both parts of your mind to beat the habit - for good. Call today to find out if hypnosis will work for you.
