Based on modern brain neuroplasticity discoveries and how the brain can easily “unlearn” old habits once thought unchangeable, this smoking cessation program is unlike anything you’ve ever tried! Get to the root cause of why you smoke and eliminate it by releasing old habits stored in the brain, going back to when you first started smoking… even if that was as a teenager! No other method does that. You will learn powerful Neural Retraining Techniques (NRT) that reverse the process of addiction and reprogram your brain to stop needing cigarettes. A stress management component shows you how to live happily without nicotine, relieve anxiety and stop relying on cigarettes to manage stress, relax or socialize. Quit without food cravings, weight gain worries or use of any other crutch. Course includes my 45pg eBook “Retrain Your Brain To Successfully Stop Smoking” with a step-by-step guide to quitting in 14-days with free coaching support to help you quit. Bonus: 30 minute NRT therapy session in-class to help you quit, overcome withdrawals and kick the habit of smoking (you can record session for reinforcement therapy at home).
