In brief: Frequently
It is a method worth trying as it does frequently work.
Don't expect a single episode to be the answer. The best success seems to come from repeat treatments. Combining essential oils of peppermint, lavender and orange breathed from the palm of hand three times daily plus anytime you feel anxious or an urge to smoke works well even without the hypnotism and even better combined. www.medacpc.com.

In brief: Sometimes
The results of hypnosis are mixed, as are acupuncture.
It helps some people over the first few days, which are the hardest. The best results come from the combination of nicotine replacement therapy (skin patches and gum/lozenges for craving/withdrawal) with a formal smoking cessation program. Meds can help. 1-800-quit-now can put you in touch with a program in your area. Good luck with quitting!
