You were born smoke-free.
And you were smoke-free for most of your childhood.
Can you remember what that was like? You breathed clean then, taking the fresh air into your healthy, happy lungs, the oxygen flowing into your bloodstream and circulating to every cell in your body.
You can have that again!
Did you know that within 8 hours of your last cigarette, the oxygen level in your blood increases to normal and the carbon monoxide level declines to normal?
Did you know that within 72 hours your lung capacity is already increasing? And that between 2 weeks to 3 months your lung capacity increases up to 30%?
And within 10 years the lung cancer death rate for average smoker drops to almost the rate for non-smokers
You need to stop. You want to stop.
You can have what you want!
With hypnosis, your mind becomes more focused – fully alert and attentive, yet able to utilize beneficial suggestions at a deep level. Through hypnosis and self-hypnosis you can change the patterns of thinking and behavior – and eliminate the cravings – that up to now may have made it difficult for you quit and stay quit.
We will do three sessions for smoking cessation. The first, the main session, lasts 2 hours. The majority of my smoking clients are done with tobacco after this session. Sessions 2 and 3 are for followup and reinforcement; they are shorter. Dr. Pelles has found that your (and his) success rate is better doing three sessions than with just one.

Over 75% of Dr. Pelles' smoking clients are smoke-free 12 months later.

I had my first cigarette at the age of 14. By college it was a pack a day habit. Today marks 5 years, 8 months and 1 day from my first appointment with Don, and 5 years, 8 months and 1 day since I last had a cigarette. It was like nothing I’ve ever experienced. I walked into the appointment a smoker, and walked out a non smoker. “Man I feel like a cigarette. Oh well, too bad. I don’t smoke anymore.” This is exactly what I was thinking the days following my appointment. I would recommend him a thousand times out of a thousand.-- Brendan McKay
