What to do after you quit smoking cigarettes

I initially became a professional hypnotherapist to help people quit smoking cigarettes. In fact, I started my hypnosis practice in San Diego after a friend of mine died from smoking related lung cancer. Shortly after I found that adding Neuro Linguistic Programming Techniques gave the smoking habit a one-two knockout punch that works on about 70% of the clients I see on their first visit.
