Hi. I’m Bob Felix.
This is just to give you a feeling
of who you’ll be talking to.
I had my first experience with hypnosis back in 1991. In
January of that year I decided that I wanted to stop smoking, and
picked May 1st as the target date. I had been smoking
since I was 14, so this was a momentous decision.
Well, a few days later I was looking through the
catalog for Lake Washington Technical College, and
lo-and-behold, a hypnotist was scheduled to do a
stop-smoking session there on May 1st.
This was my date! Was this a signal from the universe?
I had my doubts. After all, I had been an architect and a homebuilder.
I was a practical, no-nonsense sort of guy, and I
didn’t believe in that “woo-woo” stuff. I thought hypnosis was
all about beads and incense and weird music.
I decided to give it a shot, and signed up.
At 6:55 p.m. on the night of May 1st, I stood outside the
building having a cigarette … and it tasted good!
Five minutes later I went into the classroom. I was
disappointed. I thought hypnosis would feel weird; like I was
hallucinating, or had been drugged, or some other
Instead, I felt the same as always. I could hear every
sound in the room. I could hear people coughing and wheezing.
I could hear the hypnotist shuffling papers. I could hear the
air conditioner. I could hear doors opening and closing.
I could hear people walking down the corridors.
I could hear the instructor in the next room.
I figured that I had wasted my time.
Boy, was I wrong. I have not had a cigarette since that day!
And it was easy. At first I thought it was easy
simply because I had decided to quit smoking. I thought
it had been easy because I had good willpower,
and that it had nothing to do with hypnosis.
But now I understand just how powerless willpower
can be when it comes to addictions. Now I understand that
hypnosis made the entire process much easier.
Now, I’m a believer.
I hope you will experience similar success,
