Smoke free for 7.3 months
I saw a guy in Denver named Frank Oden. (I live in Missouri) He was worth the $250 and the airline ticket. It took 4 hours (including hypnosis) and I was skeptical going in. /

It wasn't the hypnosis (but it helped) but rather the first 3 hours of discussing the physical and mental hangups of smoking. Everything that would have kept me smoking was broken--no shattered. I learned what to expect, and how to deal with it.

7 months isn't a fluke. I have smoked my last cigarette. It was at 10:55 CST, April 24, 2009. I owe at least 40% of it to Frank's instruction. The hardest day was the first, but I defeated every trigger. By the end of the first week, my pride of quitting beat most temptations.

I remember early on making a deal with myself that if I found a stray cigarette I would smoke it. To my horror I found one and had the strength to crumble it anyways!!

A flight to Denver, the hotel, and Franks fee may seem like a lot, but hell--I was ahead financially sooner than I thought.

Do what you need to do. I smoked since 1989. I never thought I would quit, but I did. Since then, I have been amazed by the extra disposable income.

If you don;t want to try Frank, try something. It is a different world not to be a slave to tobacco!
