Dan's Smoking Addiction
- Will M.
by Dave Wilkinson
Dan arranged a session with me, as he had tried to stop smoking for the past two years, without success. I asked Dan not to smoke for two to three hours to increase his need for a cigarette, before we started the session.
At the start of the session his SUDS level was nine. Two rounds of tapping brought the level down to four. A few more rounds of EFT and the craving had disappeared.
Using Matrix Reimprinting, I asked Dan to think back to the first time he had a cigarette. He was 11 years old, and with some friends. I asked him how he felt at the time, and he told me he felt peer pressure. The feeling of peer pressure was overwhelming with a SUDS level of 10.
I asked Dan to introduce himself to his younger self, as young Dan didn’t recognise him. I asked Dan if his ECHO (Energy Consciousness Hologram) would allow him to tap on him, and Dan’s ECHO agreed. Dan started to follow my tapping and began to cry. When I asked about the reaction, he said that young Dan felt stupid. We tapped on this issue and the feeling disappeared.
I told Dan to tell his ECHO anything he needed to know regarding smoking, which he did, and a smile came across his face. He said he felt great, and he was never going to smoke again.
The following morning I rang Dan to see how it was going. He had no cravings for the rest of Friday and felt good. I saw Dan again on Monday, and he said that Saturday afternoon he had a few cravings, but all he could think of was what he had told young Dan, and that "I love and respect myself too much to smoke." I spoke to Dan again on Tuesday, and he has had no cravings and no desire to smoke at all.
