That was a wonderful seminar. The videos were very complementary and important to illustrate the seminar. I feel I relate to this matter because I once was highly addicted to nicotine and I have been free from it for 20 years now after reading the Allen Carr book who was using a method I could not really understand why it was so powerful. Now I understand he was using the law of repetition, suggestions and desensitization. It's very dear to my heart to be able to help people quit that highly addictive substance. And as I am writing this comment, my brother had a stroke and is fighting for his life mainly because of his 40 years addiction to tobacco. Thank you John for helping us help others.

I've been looking forward to taking John Melton's Smoking Cessation workshop for a while and it was not a disappointment. He laid out a clear and effective format on how a hypnotherapist can help a client quit smoking. Many techniques will come with practice and experience but it gives a useful framework for new learners. Thank you John and AHA.

This was very educational! One knows cigarettes are bad but the in-depth information of the chemicals in them, shined more light on how bad they really are and reinforcing the damage they can do to one's body.

John is always very thorough and giving in his teaching. It is a gift being able to help someone quit smoking, and John's blueprint on how to achieve it for the client that is ready to let go makes it possible in the first session. Great seminar!

Excellent course! I really enjoyed this and John is an excellent teacher. Easy to follow and I learned so much in a relatively short period of time. Even though I realize I need to make my own CD, would it be possible to hear the generic 17-minute CD John made and gives to his clients? Thank you.
