You do realise that the Allen Carr seminar method involves hypnosis, right?
The book didn’t put you in a trance or Hypnotic state (otherwise how could you read it?) but instead he used a method called NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) which allows you to break bad habits and in this case smoking. So yes, hypnosis is probably a big part of the Seminar and NLP is the method employed in his books. (otherwise you have to get into scripts and such).
Perhaps a psychologist or hypnotist could better explain the difference between Hypnosis and NLP, but if either helps you in your objective, then thats good enough.
I pressure your referring to “Packing It in the Easy Way” by Allen Carr, haven’t read it, I understand this is his autobiography rather than a method book? Was it any good?
The difference in prices for hypnotism is a tricky one.
What's the difference? If you go to Desmond Riordan, do you have less of a chance of staying off them?
Well Kevin (as you call him!)
works out of The Albany Clinic on Fitzwilliam St lower and has an office in Gorey.
There is the backup alright but if youo went to Dr. Riordan it might work on the 1st session and if it didn't work you could go back 3 times before the price would equal Dr. Hendrik's.
I really don't know.
...only 'cos that's his name! What you need to ask yourself is this: if people didn't find his service worth the price, would he be in a position to continue charging it?
i did Allen Carr five and a half years ago, quit effortlessly, but then got hooked agin this summer after smoking a joint. i'm struggling to quit again. the only problem with allen carr is, if it fails it won't work agin, because he tells you you can't fail. you have to believe in the system.
anyway, if you're quitting, stay off the joints!
Ugh, five days off the smokes and I'm turning into the monster from hell. . . . I'm cranky, I could not stop crying on . . . I was crying over the most stupid of things as well . . . I ended up crying over the fact that he went for 5 hours.
. . . seen me turn into some sort of raving, foaming-at-the-mouth she bitch
would it be of any benefit to read Allen Carr's book after giving up smoking??
I gave up on monday!
sorry i havent had time to read the whole thread but what exactly are in his books/cd's?
