Confession: I Was A Hypnotist Who Smoked Cigarettes

“Giving up smoking is easy…I’ve done it hundreds of times.” ~Mark Twain

It’s true. For a majority of my career as a hypnotist, while I was helping people quit smoking, I also smoked. I know that makes me seem like a hypocrite and I would agree.

I started smoking a few years before I started my career in hypnosis. Smoking made be feel independent and rebellious. I also knew no good would come of smoking but, like every smoker, I suppressed that thought with a double dose of justification and denial.  Also like many smokers, I quit smoking many times. What I want to share with you is what got me over the hump and made stay a non-smoker.

The turning point came for me when I realized that, while I liked smoking, and sometimes really wanted/craved a cigarette, I liked being a non-smoker even more. The change happened when I made smoking about my self image and self-esteem.

Many of us use a habit like smoking to distract us from something deeper, to keep us from facing a problem that might be easier to ignore. I thought I had a healthy self-esteem but I surrounded myself with un-supportive people and isolated myself from people who really cared about me. I was figuratively alone and used smoking to prop myself up and “be a man”.  Even now it sounds kind of pitiable.

Deciding to be a non-smoker and give up smoking was the most positive rebellion I could have designed against a half-lived life. When I quit smoking a lot of things changed. I began to treat myself with more respect and care. The most difficult part was ending the relationships that didn’t support my emotional well being.

As a result of all that I’m more dedicated than ever to helping people become non-smokers. Long term smokers are now the people I seek out the most to help. I want them to have the same change I did.

For some people, that simple message is enough to make them reconsider smoking. For others it can be a lot harder, I know! That is why I love helping people quit smoking and it’s why I developed my Quit Smoking CD and Download.

Common Sense and Hypnosis

I love that quote. Everyone I work with wants to do common sense things that should be easy to do. They want to stop smoking, eat right, control anxiety, focus on important areas of life and avoid distractions.  All of these things are just common sense.

  • It’s common sense to not smoke tobacco.
  • It’s common sense to eat healthy foods.
  • It’s common sense to get physical activity.
  • It’s common sense that speaking to groups of people should be easy.

These things should be easy … but they are not.  If gaining this level of control were easy people wouldn’t need a hypnotist.  A lot of people will explain that they “can’t get our of my own way.”

Hypnosis is designed to create the “ideal conditions” where doing the commons sense things are simple, easy and automatic.

People wonder what the experience of hypnosis is like to make such a dramatic, and common sense, change.  I remind people that it’s all about directing the attention to the right things. The hypnotist is the tour guide, your job is to do the “heavy lifting” by simply following the hypnotists instruction. Most of the time the feeling you get in hypnosis is so positive and pleasant it’s amazing. A lot of people feel so dramatically better they’re smiling and laughing at the end of the session.  Yes, it’s an “ideal condition” for being able to do what is just common sense.

The Unseen Expense of Smoking

Simply knowing you should quit smoking isn’t usually enough to make it happen. Warning labels on cigarette packages become just another form of white noise…even though you know they are right. An annoying cough and heaviness in your chest begs you to quit smoking. In spite of the impact to your health there is a considerable negative impact on something else – your pocketbook.

Is It Overlooking the Obvious or Denial?

Throwing a few dollars toward a pack of smokes seems harmless, like the cost to your health, smoking has a cumulative impact on your long term finances.  Considering the big picture of how small expense add up you should remember that According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention , the average cost of a pack of cigarettes is $6.28, which means a pack-a-day habit sets you back $188 per month or $2,292 per year. Ten years of smoking comes with a $22,920 price tag.

If you’re thinking electronic cigarettes are less expensive you would be wrong. It’s just another way to feed a habit that dose more harm than good to your health and finances. A pack of cigarettes you smoke carries an additional $35 in health-related costs.

Think of the BIGGER expense

The cost of smoking adds up and costs you in more ways than you can first imagine. Health and Money are just the most obvious there is also a risk of lost respect in a world where smoking is no longer a respectable pastime. Smoking also sets an example to the people you most care about. The costs keep going up and up.

You are a wiser person when you decide to stop smoking. You will also discover that you are a stronger person too. Hypnosis has been shown to be one of the most effective methods to become a lifelong non-smoker.

Make the call.

Hypnotizing People In Airports


The name tag I wore while traveling.

The title “Hypnotizing People In Airports” isn’t about how facinating airport traveler are.

It’s about how I do hypnosis on people IN AN AIRPORT!

As I was traveling over the holidays I decided to wear my name tag that says “My Name Is David. I’ll be your HYPNOTIST”. It was a social experiment just to see how people would react.

On a layover in Detroit I went to the Coney Island burger joint to eat. The waitress, Monica, asked about my name tag and immediately wanted to know if I could help her become a non-smoker.

That was all I needed.

In about 15 minutes she quite easily proclaimed herself a non-smoker.

Monica even reviewed me on!
Here’s the link.

I did this all for free… in the spirit of giving!!!!

I’m Wishing you a WONDERFUL 2016!


David Barron

PS, I don’t know how to contact Monical so if you happen to know Monica, who works at Coney Island restaurant in the Detroit airport, tell her I said hello!

Quality of Life vs. Smoking, Drinking & Obesity

ImprovePerformanceAccording to the World Health Organization (WHO) smoking, drinking and obesity is very likely to shorten the life span of Europeans*. And if it’s true for Europe it’s true for us in the good olde US of A.

Life expectancy is just one reason to change habits and improve your lifestyle. Another reason is Quality of Life.

Overeating, smoking and drinking may provide momentary satisfaction. In the long run these habits literally make you sick and reduce your satisfaction in life and your overall well being.

We all want to change but we don’t all know how. Most of our habits, good and bad, are now subconscious and we notice them by means of uncontrolable cravings and urges. Will power works for a while but it’s hard to fight habits and urges that are so deeply entrenched.

More than any other single method, hypnosis has a long history of changing subconscious habits and patterns and creating healthy choices that FEEL NATURAL.

Seriously, imagine living healthier because it’s easier and because it makes you FEEL GOOD! That’s what hypnosis has been doing for hundreds of years now.

Changing thoughts on cigarette smoking

george marks man in top hatIn the 50’s, it was fashionable to smoke cigarettes. Back then, you could smoke anywhere… airplanes, grocery stores and even hospitals. Can you remember a time when there were smoking sections in every restaurant? I can. My how times have changed! Today more than 50 million Americans smoke, with about 46% of them trying to quit each year through various methods of smoking cessation.

Face the Smokers Tax

A growing number of companies simply aren’t tolerating smoking in the workplace. Did you know about the ‘Smokers Surcharge’? That is, that more and more companies are beginning to demand that employees who smoke (or those who are overweight) share in a greater part of their health care costs. Statistics show that policies that impose a financial penalty on those who lead ‘unhealthy’ lifestyles has doubled in the past few years. Wal-Mart’s choice to start charging its employees more for insurance came without warning. Target and Pepsi have followed suit forcing workers to pay as much as $600 more per year unless they complete a smoking cessation program.

What’s more is that science is uncovering more and more about just how deceived we have all been by cigarettes. We found a study that recently revealed that people draw harder and deeper on light cigarettes, filling their lungs with more harmful material than they would inhale from regular cigarettes.

Why is Hypnosis effective for Stopping smoking?

How easy would it be to quit smoking if you had more willpower? That’s precisely what hypnosis aims to manufacture…Ten times more will power then you ever dreamed possible. Hypnosis is quite possibly the most scientifically expounded of all the so called “alternative” methods of therapy ranging around 90% effective in studies. Our goal is straight forward, to help you quit smoking. We are sure you can quit smoking through hypnosis and we guarantee it by offering free complementary follow-up sessions (if necessary). There are very few hypnotist who would make this promise. You will be a non-smoker, from your very first session, or we will do more hypnosis. It’s that simple.

It’s all in your mind

Why haven’t I been able to quit smoking before?

Maybe you’ve tried quitting smoking through the numerous methods available today. You’ve tried the gum, the patch, the electronic cigarettes, but all have failed. Have you ever considered why these methods fail?  The reason these other methods fail is simple, the other methods only aim to address the physical cravings for cigarettes and tobacco. Hypnosis is effective where other methods fail because it targets the root of your addiction; your mind.

Why haven’t I been able to lose weight in the past?

The biggest flaw in the methods you have used in the past to correct your weight loss issues, was that they focused on treating only the physical issues. Hypnosis works for weight loss because it focuses on your mind and helps you to make positive choices in regard to your health and weight.

hypnosis-mindWhy do I fear ______ so much?

Many people live day in and day out in fear, not knowing how easily hypnosis can help people overcome fears. Fears are simply manifestations of our internal defense system called our “sub-conscious mind”. Our mind can become conditioned because of our experiences to associate some behaviors as dangerous. Hypnotists help people with these common fears to recondition their sub-conscious mind to better cope with fear.

Why haven’t I been able to learn another language?

Regardless of what you may have been told about the learning process, you can learn anything under the right conditions. The truth is, your problems learning another language are mostly due to an apprehension you have towards it.  Hypnotists help people overcome mental barriers and work with the mind to produce a positive result in memory retention and learning capability.
