The Hypno-disk

 When we were kids, my best friend and I bought a hypno-disk top. When you spun it the spiral would disappear into the center. And when you looked into it, it was supposed to put you into a trance. My friend had had the hiccups for hours. I spun the hypno-disk a few times and chanted 'Your hiccups are stopping...your hiccups are stopping' while he looked into it. And they stopped!

I remembered this when I wanted to quit smoking. I liked the idea but I was sure I would need something stronger than a hypno-disk so I went to an real hypnotist. After only 3 sessions, I stopped!

That was 5 years ago and I'm still smoke-free.

Happy to hear about your success!

Oh,OK. It's a good thing I went to a real hypnotist then.<br />
Thank you for kudos on stopping smoking. I feel great!<br />

I'm going back for my next project: either to improve my memory<br />
or get over a fear of bugs.

Hypno-disks don't really work for hypnosis; it's harder to enter that calm, relaxed state when you focusing on the center of a spinning spiral.<br />

Kudos for staying smoke-free.

In my experience. Anything can work for Anyone.

What works for one doesnt work for all.
