St. Petersburg Hypnosis Center specializes in Smoking Cessation and helping you become a permanent non smoker. We feel that becoming a permanent non smoker is one of the biggest positive changes that you can make in your life. Hypnosis is one of the most powerful techniques available to stop smoking because smoking is a habit and habits are formed in the subconscious mind.
Hypnosis helps stop the cravings, eliminate weight gain that you may normally experience when quitting smoking and motivates you and remain a non smoker. It is a very relaxed enjoyable stress reducing experience.
Come find out for yourself.
Hypnosis supports your decision to break the smoking habit as well as the cravings that go with it. It can motivate the powerful, resilient subconscious mind to relearn and release you from this horrible nasty habit. Unlike will power, cravings are reduced where the habit resides in the subconscious mind. The subconscious mind works out the solution at the deepest level of your mind using the imagination which always wins over willpower.
Our Stop Smoking program is affordable and very effective.
DESIRE – A necessity! You must first WANT to quit. This doesn’t mean you don’t like to smoke. But don’t expect hypnosis to work if you are only “trying it” because someone else wants you to quit. You must be at a point in your life where YOU are ready to quit for yourself. We cannot MAKE You Quit Smoking.
COMMITMENT – Having a strong desire to quit means that you will do whatever is necessary to quit smoking. If you are really committed to quitting, you will read any material given to you and listen to your audio cd’s, get rid of all smoking materials and keep your follow-up appointments.
POSITIVE ATTITUDE – If you think you can or think you can’t, you’re absolutely right! Hypnosis is a great tool to help make the transition easier without strong withdrawal pangs and cravings. There is no “try.” There is only “do” or “don’t do.” Expect to succeed and you will. You will feel very proud of your accomplishment!

I went to see Tammy in pure desperation in order to stop smoking. I had tried everything. I was apprehensive after my first session as I continued to smoke. After my 3rd session with Tammy, I am now a permanent non-smoker! This is my 23rd day! Tammy, you have changed my life forever! My family and I are so thankful! I have bought a treadmill with the money I am saving on the poison!!! You have changed my life!
*I had an excellent experience. Tammy is professional, kind and full of positive energy. I highly recommend her you want to quit smoking.
*Two days after my first session I stopped smoking easily. It’s been three weeks now and I’ve not had a problem staying off nicotine. Tami is very friendly and very professional and as far as I’m concerned, a life saver! If YOU want to make a change this is a great place to invest in yourself.
*After two stop smoking treatments I feel great! More relaxed in general than I have felt in some time. Tammy is so fantastic! She’s funny, inviting, engaging… Most of all supportive and comforting. I’m terribly excited for my last appointment tomorrow and looking forward to a smoke free lunch life! Thank you so much Tammy!
Hypnosis has been proven to be the most effective means of smoking cessation. According to the “American Journal of clinical Hypnotherapy,” in a 1968 study involving 1000 smokers, after using three hypnosis sessions, 94% were still nonsmokers after 18 months. In 1992, “New Scientist Magazine” reported success rates for the various methods of smoking cessation: 60% were successful with only one hypnosis session and 30% using only a recorded hypnosis session. Compare that to 24% who used only acupuncture, 29% with exercise and breathing therapy, 25% with aversion therapy, 10% with nicotine replacement therapy (gum or patches), and 6% who used willpower alone.
Hypnosis Patients Twice As Likely To Remain Smoke-Free After Two YearsStudy of 71 smokers showed that after a two-year follow up, patients that quit with hypnosis were twice as likely to remain smoke-free than those who quit on their own.

Hypnosis is the most effective way of giving up smoking, according to the largest ever scientific comparison of ways of breaking the habit. A meta-analysis, statistically combining results of more than 600 studies of 72,000 people from America and Europe to compare various methods of quitting. On average, hypnosis was over three times as effective as nicotine replacement methods and 15 times as effective as trying to quit alone.
