Why You're Vaping More Than You Smoked

Were you one of those who got caught in the trap of trading in cigarettes for vaping?

No one could blame you. After all, these vaping companies paid big money to convince people that vaping is safer than smoking cigarettes.

In this video, I explain why you’re vaping more than you were smoking. And here’s a hint, it’s not just the nicotine.

And, I cover ways that you can stop vaping so much, or at all if you choose. 

And if you’re tired of the constant vaping and want to stop vaping cold turkey, I have some great news for you. My free online masterclass, How to Stop...

The Shocking Hidden Costs of Smoking

Did you know that the part of your mind that smokes could care less about how much smoking costs? It's true. Eight out of ten people who smoke are not really focused on the expense of smoking. And yet we spend so much money smoking.

I want to walk you through the cost of smoking, not to shame you and not to put you down, but to empower you and to motivate you. Because once your rational brain sees the cost of smoking, it can really, really give you some power and some leverage to make that powerful decision to stop smoking cold turkey and be free once and for all.


It's interesting, because when I speak to clients or I get feedback from students in my online program, Smokefree123, I’ll ask if the expense bothers them. And sometimes people will say that if they stop to think about it, then yes it really does. But they also say they rarely think about it, they just pay the money. They don’t...

She Smoked Forever But Stopped in a Second

stop smoking testimonial Jul 17, 2019

When we have smoked for decades, it’s hard to believe that we will ever be able to stop smoking cold turkey.

But I Promise It's Possible

Many of my smoking cessation clients who come to my office or use my online hypnosis based program Smokefree123 for stop smoking hypnotherapy, can’t even remember a time when they didn’t smoke. That creates a lot of fear and self-doubt.

Like Leila (see testimonial below). She smoked for over 30 years and over a pack a day. She had COPD and knew she had to stop smoking but she just couldn’t. Maybe you can relate. You might have been smoking for decades, and you might even have developed health issues or struggles thanks to the habit. And you would love to stop smoking cold turkey, but you're stuck in the cycle of fear and doubt.


I bet you know people who stopped smoking and it was really, really hard. Maybe they even went back. I bet you also know people who stopped...
