Cult Expert Rick Ross Identifies Popular Groups That Could Be Cu…
He began smoking in high school, and it has turned into a daily habit. He now smokes up to a pack a day and it has been going on for 5 to 6 years now.
When he has tried to quit, Chris says he felt easily aggravated the whole time and was unsuccessful at kicking the habit. Chris says he worries about possibly developing lung cancer, but says his cravings override his fear of cancer.
"I'm really desperate to quit smoking and I'll take any help I can get," he tells The Doctors and we send Chris to work with mindset expert and hypnotist Ricky Kalmon.
Ricky takes Chris through a series of guided breathing exercises and practices that place Chris in better control of his desire to smoke. Just after a few weeks of working with Ricky, Chris is happy to share he has been able to quit, and he's already seen improvements in his health. Chris shares when he exercises, he's able to run harder and faster for longer.
The hypnotist and “Leverage Your Mindset" author explains the hypnosis process helps people create new habits to replace negative feelings (like the fear of withdrawals from quitting) with breathing exercises and visualizations.
