  • With 2015 just around the corner and with so many people making New Year’s resolutions to Stop Smoking, what would be your advice for smokers wanting to stop?
  • Why do smokers find it SO HARD to stop permanently?
  • Anti-Smoking campaigns are often trying to ‘scare smokers’ into quitting as if the smoker doesn’t know cigarettes are bad for them. Hence it seems like there really isn’t much more a smoker could learn about cigarettes that could TRULY help them stop, NICK, could you share with us some fact about cigarettes here and now that perhaps your average smoker out there wouldn’t know, something that could help them stop?
  • I understand that part of your Stop Smoking Program involves Hypnotherapy so for the benefit of our listeners can tell us EXACTLY what it is and what it isn’t?
