Stop Smoking Testimonials

I really enjoyed working with Ken, Not only did I quit smoking, but I also learned value and confidence in myself. It was life changing what he was able to do in a few short sessions. I feel like a new person ready to take on new challenges and live my best life.

I found Ken in the Phone book from a friend in town. She took a snapshot on phone. I called a month later and choked on price. A car wreck supplied some cash.
I know how effective hypnosis is because 3 friends used hypnosis. I was going to use a traveling hypnotist but timing was wrong. So I kept my Appt. with Ken. A TV show called criminal minds has a character called Spencer Reid and a line stuck in my head. A prostitute was talking with Spencer and light cig. He says "6 minutes."
Then he explains that each drag is 6 minutes off life. "I can't quit" she said. "I've tried everything." "Hypnosis" he said "It Works!" That stuck with me.
I haven't smoked in 6 weeks and I know I am a non smoker for the rest of my life. Now I am making other changes in my life. Getting fit etc. I am so glad I came here.

I smoked for 11 years before I worked with Ken-
So far, the desire to smoke and the stress associated with quitting has been reduced to a very comfortable and manageable process. I tried many methods to quit previously, so far this has been the most successful.

Dear Ken and Tara,

Just want you to know that I am still a non-smoker! Thank you for your help. I was stuck on my stop smoking plans and the hypnosis got me unstuck. Still have the occasional craving, but those are pretty easy to overcome.

Thanks again, Cindy

As we approach my one year anniversary of being hypnotized I am happy to say it works if you want it bad enough. I have been a smoker off and on for 20+ years. I have quit many times, many, many times only to start back up again. I have no desire to pick one up, hold one, look at one, it ( the urge to smoke ) was gone from day one! I like many others was very skeptical when it was presented to me " Try Hypnosis"! I am so glad I did! I am about 14 days from my one year anniversary of being smoke free!

My three sessions with Ken have been life changing. I have not smoked or even been tempted since the first session. I never knew it could be this easy. I would recommend this process to anyone. Thanks Ken!

If someone would have told me five years ago that I would quit smoking down the road sometime by use of Hypnosis I wouldn't have believed it possible. Even during my session with Ken I thought I was tricking him into thinking I was under hypnosis, but didn't think I was. However, that is not true. I went from being so broke that I was butt diving for smokes in my car before my session with Ken, to never smoking again. I've been a non-smoker for a little over 1 month and have a better quality of life than I ever could have imagined.

I found the pamphlet on stop smoking by hypnosis with Ken one day at the hospital. I was not sure that this was something that would work for me, being I had tried about every other methods of stop smoking and failed miserably.

My husband and I have each smoked for over 20 years, we were tired of wheezing, smelling bad and having cigarettes run our lives. We both went to see Ken for 3 visits. We both quit smoking and haven't had a cigarette since!! It's been 6 weeks now and we love the freedom from smoking, smelling so much better, not coughing up phlegm, saving money etc.
Ken helped us quit without gaining weight, being cranky and helped us gain more confidence. It was so worth the money to get our health back.
Keep an open mind and try this hypnosis, it really can change your life for the better if you want it to. Best decision we ever made!!
Thank you Ken

I had been a cigarette smoker all of my life. I started smoking when I was around 14 years old and did so because it was "the cool thing to do". All of our parents, aunts and uncles, admired old friends smoked as well. Advertising of the day reinforced the joys and status of smoking. We simply didn't know the hard and scary truths associated with smoking. So I tried hard to learn to smoke the favorite brands of the day. About a half a century later, dozens and dozens of "quit days" have come and gone without success. I am one of those people that had "tried everything". I had quit smoking LOTS of times.

Before the end of the 2012 school year, I contacted Kenneth Hatcher at Accelerated hypnosis and spoke with him to see if he could help me stop smoking cigarettes once and for all.

My sessions with Kenneth Hatcher left me feeling empowered and strengthened. I cannot describe the end of my smoking as "quitting". Rather, it became a clear and obvious fact that I SIMPLY WAS NOT A SMOKER. I had the occasional desire (old physical habit or learned repetitive motion) but all I did was remind myself that I DID NOT SMOKE, and that was the end of the craving.
It is now approaching September 2012 and I very rarely even THINK about a cigarette or the fact that I EVER smoked.
I am so thankful to Kenneth Hatcher of Accelerated Hypnosis for his program. It was worth every penny.

For 40 years, I was "chained" to smoking. I felt powerless, ashamed & embarrassed to be a smoker. My last resort was Ken. Though him, I was able to break those chains & feel the freedom of being a non-smoker. I am no longer ashamed or embarrassed to be around my family, friends & neighbors. I thank GOD for Ken & my own desire to be in control.

I came to see Ken because I was tired of living my life with depression, I wouldn't enjoy life as before. I was always a fun outgoing person who enjoyed life but once my depression got worst I didn't want to do anything. I wouldn't go out, I always wanted to be home alone, not enjoy life, always in a bad mood but after I started my sessions with Ken my life has changed a lot for the better. I enjoy going out with my husband, my kids. We get together with my family all the time. Ken is really making my life a lot better and I feel happy always even if I have no reason. I am a complete woman now. Thank you so much Ken.

I will start by saying that Ken Hatcher and Accelerated Hypnosis has changed my life. I was a smoker for 37 years and have now been without a cigarette for over a week. After 37 years, you might not think a week is very long, but with Ken's help, I can say I will never pick up another cigarette.
I actually went to Accelerated Hypnosis to just quit smoking. I was under so much stress and anxiety in my life at the time that I didn't believe it would be possible. Ken decided to work on my stress and anxiety issues first and then start with the smoking issue. After meeting with Ken for 5 visits, I can actually handle my stress and anxiety in other ways without blowing up and I no longer need a cigarette to make me feel better. Ken is absolutely amazing and I would and have recommended him, to many of my friends and co-workers. Ken, I want to say "Thank you so much for everything you've done for me and my life.

My name is Terry and I have been smoking for over 40 years. In the past I quit smoking a few times but alas I started back again. I now realize the times I quit, was for reasons not real, so it never worked. When I first met Ken I wanted to quit but had no idea how, he showed me how I could quit by realizing why I smoked and it was me that made it happen. Ken opened an avenue to allow me to not only quit but to become a non-smoker. It was a valuable experience, not only did I quit smoking but opened my mind to realize other things that will aid me in my future. I thank him and will tell everyone of my experience.

My husband and I are both smoke free!!! We were smokers for more than 30 years. We had decided that we were going to stop and not just for a few months at a time but for good, this time. I say "this time" because we had tried and failed. It did seem like a lot of money to spend on something we were not sure would even work but we knew that the money would literally go up in smoke any way. So we made our appointment. We first went into the office together and were asked some questions, then we were asked which one of us would like to be the first to quit, I quickly answered that I would go second, just needed that one more cigarette. Then my husband came out, "Well, do you want a cigarette" I ask him, he said "No"... still I am reluctant. Ok my turn, as I sit there thinking is this going to work?
Well, I am here to say that it did work and our appointment was on January 5, 2007.
Ken, thank you, from the both of us.

I feel this was the best thing I have done in years. I don't want a cigarette! YEAH!!! I would definitely recommend this to everyone.

M. Poloa

Very relaxing and it really opened my mind to life without cigarettes. Thank you.

H. Poloa

I smoked for approximately 3 ½ years and tried to quit several times but could not. I smoked 1 ½ to 2 packs per day. After having my sessions with Ken, I can say I feel better about myself physically and mentally. I know this is one of the best decisions of my life! Well worth the price, considering what I would be paying for smokes and hospital bills the rest of my life.


B. VanderLinden

It was easy and stress free. I did it for me and it feels good to know that I will no longer be wasting my money, time, energy and life on smoking. I am a non-smoker and I will be for the rest of my life.

T. Noggles

What a wonderful experience to meet Ken. The session was an absolutely positive and uplifting experience. I truly am a non-smoker and free from the addiction. I feel not only physically but emotionally free.

Leslie K.

I know that hypnosis works and to be able to use this type of therapy to quit is amazing. Although it is difficult to understand how much control the smoking habit is, I know that the power of your inner mind is so strong it can overcome anything. You just need to know how to get there.
