Stop Smoking Naturally!
“I have not smoked in the past five months. Since Lola Bahri has been working with me my blood pressure has gone down. I feel much better. I have more energy.”

Our Approach to Success
Since the British Medical Association (BMA) and the American Medical Association (AMA) approved the use of clinical hypnosis in the1950s, thousands of people have found hypnosis to be an effective way to stop smoking, lose weight, and otherwise improve their lives. Of course, there are varying degrees of success with hypnosis. A client’s desire to truly become a non-smoker is a prerequisite for a successful outcome. The beauty of this smoking cessation approach is that we use the best traditional hypnotherapy techniques, and combine them with Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), which takes hypnosis to an even greater level of effectiveness.
One of the reasons why it’s natural and comfortable to stop smoking with our method, is that we transfer the pleasure derived from smoking to a healthier habit of your choice (e.g. exercise, drinking more water, or relaxation). This is the reason why, with us, there is usually NO unwanted weight gain or other problems associated with kicking the habit – the only side-effects are an increase in health, wealth, and freedom.
“We are here to share our success with doing hypnosis with Lola for smoking cessation. We did this in July 2005 and have been successful ever since. My sister had a medical problem and needed to quit smoking so we did this together and our health has improved. No more coughing, heavy breathing and especially we do not smell anymore. If you make the decision to stop smoking her program works. So save your future and invest in you now.”

Why People Don’t Stop Smoking
Most people know that by stopping they will save several thousand dollars a year. Most people know that they could add years to their life. And most people know that if they stop smoking right now, they could save their health – before it’s too late.
So, why do people continue to smoke? With more than 20 years combined experience in dealing with the mind, both in the USA and in the UK, we have found the answer to be the same all over the world.
It all comes down to one thing…FEAR.
- Fear that you’ll have to give up your crutch or pleasure
- Fear that you won’t be able to enjoy life or handle stress
- Fear that you will put on weight
- Fear that you’ll have to go through an awful trauma to get free
- Fear that you’ll never get completely free of the craving
All of these fears are just examples of one overriding fear. The one simple reason that you have not stopped smoking is that you:
Fear that it is going to be too painful and too difficult!
Hypnosis makes it easy to free yourself of this unwanted habit.
Hypnosis is not licensed by the state of California, however, treatment with hypnosis is complementary to healing arts services licensed by the state.
Nothing to Fear Everything to Gain
Hypnosis is possibly as old as mankind. The old myths and misconceptions about hypnosis have given way to proven, scientifically sound applications. Today the use of hypnosis is seen in a variety of fields including medicine, dentistry, law enforcement, professional sports, and education. Most people have a limited understanding of the positive results that can be achieved in a professionally controlled hypnosis session. We would like to dispel some of the myths and answer the most frequently asked questions about hypnosis.
How does hypnosis work?
Our minds work on two levels – the conscious and the unconscious. We make decisions, think, and act with our conscious mind. The unconscious mind controls our habits. In the relaxed state known as hypnosis, we can communicate directly with the unconscious mind. This is why it is so quick and easy to change habits of a lifetime with hypnosis.
Will hypnosis work for me?
Generally speaking, every normal person is “hypnotizable.” That is, people with an IQ of at least 70, and no severe mental disorders. Therefore, virtually anyone can achieve successful results using hypnosis.
How will I know if I am hypnotized?
Most people can’t tell the difference between the hypnotized and the waking states. Some people feel relaxed and lethargic, others feel a lightness. One thing that people do notice is an inexplicable change in their daily behaviors.
Is Hypnosis Safe?
Hypnosis is completely safe. You are aware and in control at every moment and can terminate the session at any time. Hypnosis is not sleep, nor can you get “stuck” in a state of hypnosis. You can’t be made to do something against your will! Hypnosis is a safe, relaxing, and enjoyable experience.
How does hypnosis help me to kick the smoking habit?
Because smoking is a habit, it is controlled by the unconscious mind. Since hypnosis and Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) work directly with the unconscious, this is the only method that makes sense! We can help you effortlessly transition into the healthy lifestyle of a happy non-smoker.
When using other methods:
When smokers try to stop with other methods, they suffer misery and depression caused by the feeling that they are being deprived of a pleasure or a crutch. The beauty of hypnosis is that it removes the feeling of deprivation. It removes the need for gimmicks or substitutes. There is no need for nicotine gum or patches. No need for inhalers or nasal sprays. No need for needles or lasers.
All that you have to do with hypnosis is sit back, and relax. It doesn’t get much easier than that.
Hypnosis makes it easy. Let us make it easy for you. All you have to do is pick up the phone, make an appointment, and keep that appointment.
