The Symonds Method of Smoking Cessation

Nearly everything most people believe about smoking is wrong.

 

Most other smoking cessation methods emphasise how difficult it is to stop, list the awful withdrawal symptoms you are likely to suffer and remind you of the risks you run of cancer or heart disease. They then usually offer the hindrance of so-called nicotine replacement therapy (really nicotine maintenance) or drugs. Youíre almost defeated before youíve started.

In contrast, based on Dr Symondsís experience of successfully treating hundreds of smokers, you will learn how itís easy to stop if you know how.

How does the Symonds Method work?

Itís essential to understand the real reason you smoke, because you will then realise itís utterly and totally pointless, so you wonít want to do it any more.

In other words, you will first lose the desire to smoke, then you will stop Ė not the other way round. Thus, you will have no difficulty in refraining from something you don't want to do.

For the large majority of smokers, this is achieved in a single ninety minutes to two hours session of teaching and discussion.

Aversion therapy is not used Ė no horrible pictures! Very little is mentioned about the harmful effects of smoking because these are things smokers know already. Instead, you will be taught things you probably don't know or fully understand. Hypnosis, acupuncture, drugs or other gimmicks are not used, and the sessions take place in a relaxed and supportive atmosphere.

How much does it cost?

The fee is •60,000 for an individual or •80,000 for a couple. A few people may need a further one or even two sessions for which there is no extra charge. Unlimited free telephone and e-mail support are also provided.

Is there a money-back guarantee?

This question doesn't really apply. What you will learn is not so much a method with a certain success rate, but a new way of looking at smoking which, once it is understood, in theory cannot fail. The important thing is to make a commitment to yourself that you will return for one or more free sessions in the unlikely event that you have not happily stopped after coming the first time.
