Well, do you know the statistics? According to "A Report of the Surgeon General" every 5 minutes people die from smoking as many as in Vietnam war!
Danger of smoking is not a joke. You can say that someone smokes and nothing happened to him/her... My friend, yes, happened. They became poisoned with nicotine and 1000s of other chemicals of tobacco. People around the smokers are poisoned as bad.
There is nobody in the whole world who became healthier because of cigarettes smoking! Nobody lived longer because of smoking. So smoking doesn't have any benefits for you, absolutely not! Let's comeback to hypnosis. You don't have to be in hypnotic state, if you can accept the idea of stop smoking. But you are a normal person, and you can't control your subconscious mind, that's why you need to be hypnotized, if you decided to stop smoking through hypnosis.
In hypnosis your mind is open for any positive suggestions, that's why stop smoking suggestions will be accepted by you easily and you will be a non-smoker immediately after hypnosis session. Actually you will be a non-smoker even earlier, while you are under hypnosis.
