Remember –

Quitting smoking cold turkey has a 1% chance of success according to most health research.


After having a heart attack I knew it was time to quit smoking and do what I could to make it stick this time. I first went to a psychologist who wanted to move me from one addiction to another, vaping. That made little sense to me. I had read about using hypnosis for smoking cessation (my Mother had done it successfully years ago with a friend of hers) so I explored the few places and people in the area who would provide the service and after that reading and research I found Sandie and I could not have been happier. I do not know the ins and outs of hypnosis, nor do I really understand just how it works, but luckily Sandie does and in a little over 3 hours she took a smoker and made me not only a nonsmoker but one who had minimal to no desire to smoke, something different than all the other times I quit in the past. In the first week I drank a lot of “Cold, clear and crisp water,” Sandie’s substitute for the physical action of smoking. She made it so going to my balcony, something that was a trigger to smoke, was now just going to the balcony without the urge to smoke. I even find the smell of smoke distasteful, something that never happened in the past. Another big concern was weight gain, my cardiologist told me I would gain 6 kilos; they do not know Sandie. I put on 2 kilos that are now off.

I cannot recommend Sandie enough to anyone who has the desire to quit but needs that extra nudge to not only do it but make it easier for it to stick. Knowing she is there if I ever need a booster is of great comfort, she has your back even after you leave.

Attorney - MARBELLA

Debbie Maclean recommends Lux Hypnotherapy & NLP Clinic:

“I had smoked for over twenty years and with three children and getting older decided that I’d had enough and wanted to stop, for my kids and myself.

Anytime I’d tried to stop before I’d be a mess after three days and so I decided to try Lux Hypnotherapy. I wasn’t sure what to expect but Sandie was very easy to talk with and explained to process clearly.

I have now not had a cigarette since my session with Sandie, two months ago, and although I’m in the early days, I feel stronger and believe in myself. My will power is much more stronger than the habit and my rational mind wins every time when or if I ever think of having a cigarette.

Thank you Sandie for helping me find within myself what I needed to quit this habit.”

Stuart is one of the most inspiring people I have ever met. I spent three hours with him to help with some addictions, mainly smoking. Its been amazing, not only have I not touched a cigarette, I haven´t even thought about one. But I guess the main thing is I´ve been able to be honest with myself for the first time since I can remember, thank you Stuart.

The Cost of smoking is not just money.
any calculator can show you that.



The actual cost is to:

      • Your health and breathing

      • Time lost to smoking

      • Increased private health insurance

      • Nagging stress from Doctors, adverts, family & relatives.

Some companies are enticing employees to lead healthier, more productive lives with a variety of ”wellness” initiatives, including smoking-cessation counseling and products, weight maintenance plans, and exercise programs. Companies are promoting everything from a discount on smoking replacement aids and health club memberships to substantial discounts on health insurance premiums.

Employers Penalize Smokers and Overweight Workers ?

In recent months, some companies have gone further, imposing what some critics say are stiff and unfair penalties against smokers and overweight workers.

Hypnotherapy IS EFFECTIVE, but what about other options?

Zyban or stop smoking the easy way or remain a slave to it.

Champix or zyban?

Some people think tablets may be an easy way to quit:

Champix tablets
(varenicline) which can cause sleeplessness and difficulty concentrating, decreased heart rate and increased appetite or weight gain.
Zyban tablets
(bupropion) also used as an anti-depressant also has an impressive list of possible side effects including agitation, dry mouth, dry mouth, headache, dizziness, nausea, stomach pain, constipation, insomnia, weight loss or gain, changes in appetite, loss of interest in sex. Seizures may also occur, especially at higher doses of Zyban
So still thinking tablets are an easy way to quit?

NRT nicotine patches or stop smoking the easy way

Nicotine replacement therapies (NRT)?

Nicotine replacement therapies (NRT), including nicotine patches, gum, lozenges, microtabs, inhalators, nasal sprays E-cigs and Vapes.
NRT products. A nicotine patch releases nicotine slowly into your system to help keep you on a constant level, while a fast-acting product such as an inhaler, spray or lozenge helps you deal with any immediate cravings.
Would you tell the cocaine addict to quit by chewing cocaine gums? Or would you tell the cocaine addict to detox by spraying more cocaine in his mouth? Of course not. Nicotine replacement is not always the answer.

stop smoking the easy way or remain a slave to it

Electronic cigarettes or vaping?

Electronic cigarettes or vaping, these battery-operated devices that are made to look like a cigarette and turns liquid from a cartridge into an aerosol, or as they prefer to call it: vapour. Glamorous? Modern? Harmless?

Scientists conclude, vaping would be no better for the lungs than tobacco.

The World Health Organisation recommended that e-cigarettes should be banned indoors.
In the summer of 2019, the news started reporting more and more deaths linked directly to the Vape.

What this all boils down to, is that you can’t really quit this addiction if you keep putting nicotine in your body in other forms

The wise choice

A whole new world
of smell and tastes

Allow your body
to heal itself

What are the benefits of quitting smoking when you allow the body to heal?

Your body is amazing. As soon as a person stops smoking their body begins to recover in the following ways:


Stop Smoking Timeline

The benefits are almost instant. As soon as a person stops smoking their body begins to recover in the following ways:

After 1 hour

In as little as 20 minutes after the last cigarette is smoked, the heart rate drops and returns to normal. Blood pressure begins to drop, and circulation may start to improve.

After 12 hours

Cigarettes contain a lot of known toxins including carbon monoxide, a gas present in cigarette smoke.

This gas can be harmful or fatal in high doses and prevents oxygen from entering the lungs and blood. When inhaled in large doses in a short time, suffocation can occur from lack of oxygen.

After just 12 hours without a cigarette, the body cleanses itself of the excess carbon monoxide from the cigarettes. The carbon monoxide level returns to normal, increasing the body’s oxygen levels.

After 1 day

Just 1 day after quitting smoking, the risk of heart attack begins to decrease.

Smoking raises the risk of developing coronary heart disease by lowering good cholesterol, which makes heart-healthy exercise harder to do. Smoking also raises blood pressure and increases blood clots, increasing the risk of stroke.

In as little as 1 day after quitting smoking, a person’s blood pressure begins to drop, decreasing the risk of heart disease from smoking-induced high blood pressure. In this short time, a person’s oxygen levels will have risen, making physical activity and exercise easier to do, promoting heart-healthy habits.

After 2 days

Smoking damages the nerve endings responsible for the senses of smell and taste. In as little as 2 days after quitting, a person may notice a heightened sense of smell and more vivid tastes as these nerves heal.

After 3 days

3 days after quitting smoking, the nicotine levels in a person’s body are depleted. While it is healthier to have no nicotine in the body, this initial depletion can cause nicotine withdrawal. Around 3 days after quitting, most people will experience moodiness and irritability, severe headaches, and cravings as the body readjusts.

After 1 month

In as little as 1 month, a person’s lung function begins to improve. As the lungs heal and lung capacity improves, former smokers may notice less coughing and shortness of breath. Athletic endurance increases and former smokers may notice a renewed ability for cardiovascular activities, such as running and jumping.

After 1-3 months

For the next several months after quitting, circulation continues to improve.

After 9 months

Nine months after quitting, the lungs have significantly healed themselves. The delicate, hair-like structures inside the lungs known as cilia have recovered from the toll cigarette smoke took on them. These structures help push mucus out of the lungs and help fight infections.

Around this time, many former smokers notice a decrease in the frequency of lung infections because the healed cilia can do their job more easily.

After 1 year

One year after quitting smoking, a person’s risk for coronary heart disease decreases by half. This risk will continue to drop past the 1-year mark.

After 5 years

Cigarettes contain many known toxins that cause the arteries and blood vessels to narrow. These same toxins also increase the likelihood of developing blood clots.

After 5 years without smoking, the body has healed itself enough for the arteries and blood vessels to begin to widen again. This widening means the blood is less likely to clot, lowering the risk of stroke.

The risk of stroke will continue to reduce over the next 10 years as the body heals more and more.

After 10 years

After 10 years, a person’s chances of developing lung cancer and dying from it are roughly cut in half compared with someone who continues to smoke. The likelihood of developing mouth, throat, or pancreatic cancer has significantly reduced.

After 15 years

After 15 years of having quit smoking, the likelihood of developing coronary heart disease is the equivalent of a non-smoker. Similarly, the risk of developing pancreatic cancer has reduced to the same level as a non-smoker.

After 20 years

After 20 years, the risk of death from smoking-related causes, including both lung disease and cancer, drops to the level of a person who has never smoked in their life. Also, the risk of developing pancreatic cancer has reduced to that of someone who has never smoked.

Smoking in the News

Some never quit and say they like it. Some decide its time!

From the Huffington Post

Margaret, a 90-year old (not a typo!) musician from Manhattan, has been tobacco-free for a whopping 26 years, after a pack-a-day smoking career that spanned six decades. She’d quit before, cold turkey, but lasted only two days before she relapsed. Years later, she decided to try hypnosis at the recommendation of a trusted friend. “It wasn’t scary,” she remembers. “I was quite unaware that I was being hypnotized. The hypnosis was just deep enough for everything she said to take root. She told me that I shouldn’t ever touch another cigarette, not to think I can smoke and get away with it, and that one cigarette can restart the addiction over again. It was very easy. I was really quite surprised.” Margaret hasn’t taken a puff since.


About half of all smokers die from smoking-related diseases. If you are a long-term smoker, on average, your life expectancy is about 10 years less than a non-smoker. Stopping smoking can make a big difference to your health. It is never too late to stop smoking to benefit your health. For example, if you stop smoking in middle age, before having cancer or some other serious disease, you avoid most of the increased risk of death due to smoking.”



In 1974, almost half of all adults in the UK smoked. For many, spending time in smoke-filled homes, pubs and workplaces was simply a part of daily life.

Today, that figure has fallen to 15%. The government has pledged to end smoking in England altogether by 2030.



I have a few things that I would like to share with anyone interested. I am sure that many of smokers have heard from the dreaded x- smoker. Always complaining about your smoke. It gets so annoying that at times you light up to piss them off. Now after 44 years of smoking I realized that I wish I would have listened. 12 years ago I was diagnosed with COPD. COPD is a progressive disease which means it keeps getting worse. Five years ago I was told that my disease had now reached Stage Four also known as end stage COPD. My doctors said they would be surprised if I lived for another 5 years. I have beaten that. Let me tell you. Every day when I go to sleep I wonder if tonight is the night that I will not wake up. Breathing is horrible. I am on 4 litres of oxygen just enough to keep me alive. Any type of activity sends my oxygen level to critical levels. Cathy and I have made some plans of what we wanted to do when we retire. As I am sure most of you all have. For me my plans are no longer achievable. My stubbornness when I was younger has now ruined not mine but my wife’s planes after retirement. This is not fair. She will be left alone when the time comes to enjoy our life together. Three weeks ago I was diagnosed with lung cancer in both lungs. I cannot be treated like most people because of the conditions of my lungs. I have begun Radiation treatment on my left lung first. The reason I am posting this is to possible get someone’s attention to quit. To save one life would be fantastic this is why I write this, with the hope that someone will quit. Love you all.


Studies have shown that hypnosis is a powerful aid to stop smoking and staying smoke free.

There is no cast iron guarantee.

As with all the other ways listed above. Hypnosis can help, AND it does have a higher chance of helping you, but nothing in life can be 100% certain except illness from smoking and death.

If it’s your time or close to it.

If you’re ready. Really ready.

If you are REALLY serious about quitting smoking, then get in touch now and we can help you.

Please Note: We only work with clients who are 100% committed to quitting smoking now.

If our therapists have any doubt that you are not ready, then we reserve the right to cancel/postpone your appointment.
