Stop Smoking Success with Mindworks HypnosisSmoking Cessation Success, with Stop Smoking Seattle’s Mindworks Hypnosis!

These are testimonials from real people in our Greater Seattle Metropolitan area who have quit smoking with hypnosis by Connie and Michael, just like you can now:

“Hi Connie, I am doing well and continue to be smoke free. I prevailed! I have been bragging about your services to everyone. Thanks again!”  — Jenny Rivera, Seattle, WA.

“I went to Connie to get help quitting smoking.  I visited her 6 weeks ago and came out of her office a non-smoker.  I tried all the conventional methods to quit and nothing worked.  After 50 years of smoking, it’s almost unbelievable that I do not have any desire for a cigarette and know that I will never smoke again.  Thank you Connie, you’re a life saver.”  — Robert B., Camano Island, WA

“Since I’ve seen you on April 5th, I have NOT smoked. Wow! What a  difference!  I’ve smoked for over 30 years…this is great not to be chained to that bad habit any more! Thank you, Connie!!”  — D. Butrick, Seattle, WA.

“I have 3 months now since I quit smoking. I am so much happier and feel so much better. I feel this is a lifelong experience with your skilled hypnosis expertise. Thank You.”  — Laurie A, Seattle, WA.

Jennifer, of the Greater Seattle area, reports that the NLP Hypnosis quit smoking process was “easy.”

“I’m 28 days without a cigarette.  I feel great!  Everything worked!  I’m very surprised at these results.  Exceeded my expectations.”  — Dave Manion, Bellevue, WA.

“I am so proud that I have not smoked all this time.  It’s amazing!  I can’t believe that I have done it!  I used to believe that I could not live without cigarettes.  Now I know I will never be a smoker again!  I’m so happy I met you, Connie.”  — N.B., Bellevue, WA.

“Hello there Connie. This Thursday will mark 6 weeks of NO SMOKING!! Yahoo!! The journey so far has been interesting for me…I have had a few dreams where I did light up and was very disappointed at myself.  Nice to wake up and realize “I’m good.” :)  — Dawn Abourezk, Seattle, WA.

“Hi Connie, I want to share with you that I have not been smoking for over 5 weeks now! The onsite sessions coupled with your no smoking cd really has allowed me to finally take control and be proud of myself for being able to do what I have wanted to do…stop smoking!!  I am so grateful for your help! Thank You!”  — Cal Ihler, Woodinville, WA

Laurie Adams of SeaTac, WA, broke a 40-year smoking habit in a two sessions.  Now, 2 years later, she reports on her ongoing success!  “This is the way to go!” she says.

Kim quit smoking in one Neuro-Linguistic Hypnotherapy session!  Five weeks later, here’s what she says about the experience:

“Over the 20 + years of being a smoker, I have made several attempts and used a variety of methods to try and quit…. all unsustainable.  I was always thinking about smoking or not smoking which made the battle to quit miserable and in the end I’d go back and have ‘just one more’.

I was desperate for a solution to quit permanently as I was sick and tired of being a ‘prisoner’ to the habit.  I had heard that hypnosis had helped many people so I started to research my options in the area when I found Connie Brannan.  Connie is not only a hypnotherapist she is also certified in neuro-linguistic programming (N.L.P. – she is far better at explaining what this is).

She is very professional and very good at what she does.  Connie is a warm, positive, and uplifting person.  She is also a success story of hypnosis herself.  Her office environment was also very comfortable and I felt very relaxed and trusted her immediately to ‘talk to my sub-conscious’.

I walked out of that office with absolutely zero desire to smoke.  I got in my car, which has always been my private smoking chamber, and drove myself home wondering when the urge would hit me.  It didn’t.  In fact after one session, it hasn’t.  Unbelievably, I have no desire to smoke at all and in addition, my association with being a smoker has changed.  It doesn’t even feel like I was ever a smoker.

I have so much energy!  It has been 5 weeks since that session and not a single cigarette or more importantly a desire for a cigarette.  I am amazed!! I wish I would have found Connie a long time ago!

If you are a smoker and have battled with trying to quit, see Connie.  She is awesome and has changed my life!  It was instant, it was painless, and it was successful!!”  Sincerely,   — Kim J., the Seattle non-smoker 1/30/11.

“I’m going to tell you a bit about my success with Hypnosis.  I was a smoker.  I smoked about a pack a day at the worst days.  I had coughs, and unhappy mornings when I ‘had to have’ my cigarette…Before meeting with Connie Brannan, I was struggling with not smoking.  After I walked out of her office, I didn’t have to struggle anymore.  Now, THREE MONTHS later, I am still a proud, successful nonsmoker.  Not only was this treatment relaxing, I learned tools that were practical for me.  Whenever I had a craving, I applied her useful tools to my moment-to-moment cravings for what I once had.  I feel great, and I have no desire to smoke cigarettes.  Connie, you have no idea how much of a difference, and how many years you helped add on to my life.  Many, many thanks!”   — Samantha Woolsey, Kirkland, WA

And more:

“It’s been 7 days since my first session with you, and I haven’t touched a cigarette!  Thanks for your help.  I feel great and less stressed.  My lungs feel younger!”   — John W., Bellevue, WA

And a follow up report:

“Hi, Connie, I just wanted to share news with you that it is almost a month since I smoked my last one.  I feel so clean, energized, refined and all good stuff I dreamed of.  Thank you once again!”  — John W., Bellevue, WA

John O.  of Bellevue, WA, quit after one session.  His comment:  “You’re good!”

“Hi Connie, Alan the former smoker here!  Well, not very surprisingly I am now a tobacco free person.  On the 1st of April (the day I had marked in my time line) I woke up realizing that I had been dreaming and what I was dreaming was your voice doing an intervention.  Cool huh.  Just thought you would like to know.”  — Alan A., Lynnwood

Diane B. had smoked 3 packs a day for 20-plus years.  She successfully quit after one powerful Mindworks Hypnosis session!  (You can, too!)

That’s right, some people quit in one session.  Some people, it takes a little longer for the mind to process the changes.  Bottom line:  changes happen.  Success happens.  Here’s a happy nonsmoker (now) sharing his success story with our services:

One and Done! — More Stop Smoking Success with Seattle Area’s Most Powerful Hypnotherapy

Quit Smoking with Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP — John did!

Lots of people want to know: Does hypnosis work? Do the positive changes last? Yes, and yes! Here is a another testimonial of success for Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP.

John M. of Seattle came into my office in July and had a single session of Neuro-Linguistic Hypnotherapy ™. At that time, he felt so sure he was done with smoking, he literally crushed the cigarettes he had. Smooshed the pack in his fist. That was his last pack. We documented it:  John crushed the smoking habit!  Now, three months later, I have John’s follow up report. It’s good news:

“Hi Connie,  It was definitely a pleasure meeting you! Since our meeting, I have not had any cravings nor desires to smoke! I feel much better and my blood pressure is down significantly. I also have been eating healthier and started to work out!  I definitely will send any friends over to you. Thank you for helping me!”  — John M. of Seattle, Washington

Yes, it lasts. The positive changes last. For John, it’s three months now–WITHOUT CRAVINGS. When you upgrade a program (new way of thinking and feeling) in your mind, it stays upgraded. And your behaviors in the world change. There’s no going back to cigarettes for John. Why would he? He’s a nonsmoker!! That’s how he sees himself, and that’s who he is. A healthy person taking care of himself. Yay, John!

If you need to dump the tobacco habit, well, it’s so much easier than you think.

Warm Regards,  Connie

From A Pack A Day for 30 Years to None – in One Hypnosis/NLP Session

Yes, hypnosis works to quit smoking!

Hi, Hypno-Friends!

Dave Manion of Bellevue, Washington used to smoke. A pack a day for 30 years. He’s done with that!!  He successfully quit in one two-hour Neuro Linguistic Hypnotherapy session with me. I like happy reports.  Here’s what Dave told me yesterday, that he walked out of my office and hasn’t smoked since:

“I FEEL GREAT! I’m 28 days without a cigarette. Everything worked! I’m very surprised at these results, they exceeded my expectations!”

That’s right. Hypnotherapy works! NLP works better. I use both. For smoking cessation and so much more.  Whatever habits you’ve fallen into, if they no longer serve you, fall out of them. Learn something new.

We work on the unconscious level, that makes change easy and your life becomes more what you want it to be.

Like Dave. He’s added some years onto his life, an improved quality of life into those years and thousands of dollars back into his pocket.  What’s it worth to you to have a better life, and even MORE life?

Michael and I do this work, and we’re very passionate and skilled. Call us if you’d really like to kick nicotine forever or other changes for your healthy and happy. Mindworks Hypnosis: (425) 564-8608. Contact us

One more, Brian Jacob quit a 15 year habit in one session.  He shared his joy on YELP and google reviews.  Here’s that story:

“I have been smoking one pack a day for the past 15 years. I tried to quit so many times but it never worked. There was always something that pushed me right back to it.   One session with Connie… That’s right… One session!… And I was smoke free!  I still don’t know how she did it, but now every time I think about cigarettes I am like : “Oh no!”.

I left my cigarettes and my lighter at her office when I left and never had to buy cigarettes since then.

Some advice if you want to quit smoking and are considering using Connie’s Services:  Do not think of hypnosis based on what you’ve seen on TV. It is not a joke. Just be super open and play Connie’s game. I feel like the fact I was so open to her and treated hypnosis so seriously truly helped Connie to do the right work with me right away.

Hypnosis made me demonize cigarettes, yes. But the nicotine craving was still there for a couple of weeks. I used patches and I was done after 3 weeks of using them less and less every day. I didn’t need anything after that… I was cured.

Let’s be honest, being hypnotized is kind of a bucket list item. There is something fascinating about it. If it does not work for you (Which I truly doubt), at least you can say: I did it!

Anyway, let Connie guide you, she is FANTASTIC and I am so grateful I get to work with her.  Smoking sucks!”  — Brian Jacob, Seattle, WA

The truth about cigarettes: 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention lays out how cigarettes can harm your health:  Cancer, Heart Disease, Respiratory Disease

Smoking harms nearly every organ of the body; causing many diseases and reducing the health of smokers in general. The adverse health effects from cigarette smoking account for an estimated 438,000 deaths, or nearly 1 of every 5 deaths, each year in the United States.  More deaths are caused each year by tobacco use than by all deaths from human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), illegal drug use, alcohol use, motor vehicle injuries, suicides, and murders combined.


  • –Cancer is the second leading cause of death and was among the first diseases causally linked to smoking.
  • –Smoking causes about 90% of lung cancer deaths in men and almost 80% of lung cancer deaths in women. The risk of dying from lung cancer is more than 23 times higher among men who smoke cigarettes, and about 13 times higher among women who smoke cigarettes compared with never smokers.
  • –Smoking causes cancers of the bladder, oral cavity, pharynx, larynx (voice box), esophagus, cervix, kidney, lung, pancreas, and stomach, and causes acute myeloid leukemia.
  • –Rates of cancers related to cigarette smoking vary widely among members of racial/ethnic groups, but are generally highest in African-American men.

Cardiovascular Disease (Heart and Circulatory System)

  • –Smoking causes coronary heart disease, the leading cause of death in the United States. Cigarette smokers are 2–4 times more likely to develop coronary heart disease than nonsmokers.
  • –Cigarette smoking approximately doubles a person’s risk for stroke.
  • –Cigarette smoking causes reduced circulation by narrowing the blood vessels (arteries). Smokers are more than 10 times as likely as nonsmokers to develop peripheral vascular disease.
  • –Smoking causes abdominal aortic aneurysm.

Respiratory Disease and Other Effects

  • –Cigarette smoking is associated with a tenfold increase in the risk of dying from chronic obstructive lung disease.  About 90% of all deaths from chronic obstructive lung diseases are attributable to cigarette smoking.
  • –Cigarette smoking has many adverse reproductive and early childhood effects, including an increased risk for infertility, preterm delivery, stillbirth, low birth weight, and sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).
  • –Postmenopausal women who smoke have lower bone density than women who never smoked. Women who smoke have an increased risk for hip fracture than never smokers.

Cigarettes kill.

Cigarette smoke is a cocktail of poisonous chemicals, which include:  sixty-nine cancer-causing chemicals, such as benzene, arsenic, cadmium, radioactive polonium-210, and formaldehyde, and also other poisons such as carbon monoxide, ammonia and hydrogen cyanide that can lead to heart disease and other illnesses.

According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the following carcinogens are found in cigarette smoke:

Chemical Amount (per cigarette)
Acetaldehyde 980 micrograms to 1.37 milligrams

Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon 28 to 100 milligrams
o-Toluidine 32 nanograms
Vinyl chloride 5.6 to 27 nanograms



But…the good news is:  Once you’ve quit your body quickly repairs itself.

  • Carbon monoxide level in blood drops to normal
  • Oxygen level in blood increases to normal

At 24 hours smoke-free:

  • Nerve endings begin re-growth
  • Your ability to smell and taste improves

Between 2 weeks and 3 months smoke-free:

  • Lung function increases

Between 1 to 9 months smoke-free:

Starting as early as a month after you quit smoking, and continuing for the next several months, you may notice significant improvements in these areas:

  • coughing, sinus congestion, fatigue, shortness of breath

At 1 year smoke-free:

Your excess risk of coronary heart disease is decreased to half that of a smoker.

At 5 years smoke-free:

  • From 5 to 15 years after quitting tobacco, stroke risk is reduced to that of people who have never smoked.

At 10 years smoke-free:

  • Risk of lung cancer drops to as little as one-half that of continuing smokers
  • Risk of cancer of the mouth, throat, esophagus, bladder, kidney, and pancreas decreases
  • Risk of ulcers decreases

At 15 years smoke-free:

  • Risk of coronary heart disease is now similar to that of people who have never smoked
  • Risk of death returns to nearly the level of people who have never smoked

“The most effective way of giving up smoking.”  That’s right!  This is the best method available, saysNew Scientist, the world’s #1 science & technology news service, in their issue 1845, 31 October 1992, page 6.

To find the most effective way to give up smoking, researchers carried out a meta-analysis, statistically combining the results of more than 600 smoking cessation studies covering almost 72 000 people from across the globe.  By combining the results from so many separate studies, the meta-analysis enables the real effectiveness of each technique to be seen.  The results are clear:  the use of clinical hypnosis for smoking cessation is the most effective approach to becoming smoke-free in existence!  And, one of the least expensive!

Since the American Medical Association approved the use of clinical hypnosis in the 1950’s, hundreds of thousands of people have found hypnosis to be an effective way to stop smoking, and improve their lives.  You can, too!
