Hypnosis for Smoking Cessation

Celebrity Ellen DeGeneres famously kicked the smoking habit live on her US chat show, when British hypnotist Paul McKenna hypnotized her and, according to DeGeneres, “probably saved my life.”

British pop star Lily Allen recently confessed in an interview in the Daily Mail newspaper that hypnosis helped her drop 4 dress sizes, adding "after the hypnotism, I want to go to the gym every day, otherwise I feel really bad.”

The list of people past and present who turned to hypnosis to help them develop positive habits, overcome limitations, or iron out personal problems includes:

Albert Einstein
Winston Churchill
Kevin Costner
Orlando Bloom
Mozart
Alfred Lord Tennyson
Jack Nicklaus
Jackie Kennedy
David Beckham

According to the American Cancer Society, hypnosis has been evaluated and approved as an effective relaxation technique by the National Institutes of Health.

The NIH also found hypnosis to be “effective in reducing fear and anxiety, reducing the frequency and severity of headaches, and controlling bleeding and pain during dental procedures.”
