The Non-Smoker's Edge: Your Guide to Smoking Cessation

By Terry Martin of

Without a doubt, your own will and determination to stop smoking are the best quit aids available to you. They are also mandatory requirements for successful, long term smoking cessation. With solid commitment in place, any quit aid of your choice will help. Without it, nothing will. So, with that said, let's take a look at hypnosis as a tool to help you stop smoking.

Hypnosis activates an altered state of consciousness in which a person is fully awake while being deeply relaxed and more susceptible to suggestion. Exactly how hypnosis works isn’t known, but one thing is certain: people in a hypnotic trance can't be convinced to do things they wouldn’t normally do. They are in full control of their free will.

You might be surprised to learn that you probably experience a self-induced hypnotic trance at least once a day. Have you ever been driving your car only to suddenly realize you can't remember some of the trip? Do you sometimes "lose yourself" while reading a good book or watching a movie? Three-dimensional life fades away, and you're immersed in a different reality, often vividly complete with emotions and physical sensations. That sense of disconnection from your present surroundings while awake and alert signals a hypnotic trance. Rather than being sleep-like, while under hypnosis, people are actually in a state of increased attentiveness, and suggestions offered can take root more easily.

As a smoking cessation aid, hypnosis has one very important benefit that other quit smoking tools aren't able to offer. Because it uses the power of positive suggestion to help you stop smoking, it actually has the ability to help you develop and strengthen your will and determination to succeed. In my mind, that's a significant benefit!

Most smokers start their quit programs on shaky legs. Nicotine addiction makes us think we are weak and unable to live without our cigarettes. Given time and a healthy attitude though, we can tip the scales in our favor. With every smoke free day completed, you are proving to yourself that quitting is possible. Add some hypnosis to your smoking cessation plan, and it will help you develop the attitude you need to succeed. Further, if you use hypnosis in conjunction with another quit aid, such as the nicotine patch or bupropion (Zyban), your chance of long term success is even higher.

The Non-Smoker's Edge - Quit Smoking Forever
This 7-CD hypnosis program was developed by Randy Gilchrist, who is a licensed psychotherapist with advanced training in clinical hypnosis. Dr. Gilchrist works in private practice helping people recover from addictions to alcohol, drugs, food and smoking, among other things. The program offers users 4 primary sessions of hypnosis to quit smoking:

  • Motivation and Confidence
    Learn how to build a strong desire to stop smoking. Reasons to quit and benefits of quitting are covered.
  • Overcoming Past Connections
    In order to quit successfully, we must change what cigarettes mean to us and the connections they have in our lives.
  • Creating New, Healthier Connections
    Time to reprogram our minds with healthier choices. Great guided visualization of cleansing our bodies of the toxins smoking leaves behind.
  • Preventing Relapse
    This session cements the value of quitting and provides help with avoiding a smoking relapse.

Each hypnosis session is 25 to 30 minutes in length. I found myself coming away from each of them encouraged and motivated to make changes in my life.

Along with the basic 4-session set described above, there are 5 additional 20-30 minute hypnosis sessions targeted at these specific issues:

  • Handling feelings without cigarettes
  • Weight management
  • Assertiveness / people skills
  • Energy and concentration
  • Pairing smoking with unpleasant experiences – also known as aversion therapy.

In addition, Dr. Gilchrist shares information about various quit aids on the market today, along with a lengthy discussion reviewing 20 separate behavior modification strategies.

This hypnosis program is a solid tool to help you quit smoking. The user is given a wealth of information and support, along with several hours of quality hypnosis sessions that can be replayed frequently. The recording quality is excellent, and Dr. Gilchrist’s voice is soft with a soothing cadence. He is extremely effective at helping the listener relax and focus.

The cost of this program is fully refundable for a year, so if you're not happy with it for any reason, return it and you've lost nothing. Use hypnosis in conjunction with another quit aid and some solid support, and you'll greatly improve your chances of making this the quit that lasts you a lifetime. awarded The Non-Smoker's Edge a full 5 stars. Getting past your smoking addiction will be much easier with the help of this mental tool.

"It would be an understatement if I said I was skeptical about ordering "Non-Smokers Edge". But considering the price was less than 4 cartons of cigarettes, what did I have to lose. Well, I lost alright - the smoking habit and haven't felt this good in years! Thank you Hypnosis Network"
--Mike Burkhardt - Crystal Falls, Illinois

"The Hypnosis Network's smoking program actually worked for me. This surprised me as I had tried hypnosis before and it had not worked for me. The company is top notch, and if you look at their therapists and product reviews you can see they are for real."
--Charles Brookside - Golden, Colorado

"Since your hypnosis, I am not only staying away from smoking, but I also stopped eating the junk food I used to eat. There were no fireworks. I am simply a new person--how I've wanted to be for a long time. This is wonderful!"
--Kim Johnson - Sacramento, CA
