If you happen to be one of those who find this book too challenging or advanced and are looking just for some scripts you can use, you may also check out Instant Self-Hypnosis: How To Hypnotize Yourself with Eyes Open.
I haven't smoked for 6 weeks now, partly due to this book, partly because it was the right time for me to give up. But this book definitely was a good tool to have while I made the choice.
As instructed I read the first half of the book, then I picked out the relevant chapter on pain control. This is no quick fix, but I have found that if you follow the instructions and reread various points and practice the suggestions given, it does help. I have also used the section on weight loss (being overweight does not help joint pain) and I have found that very helpful, as it makes you really think about why you are overeating in the first place!
I would recommend this book.
Only 4 stars as I am work in progress.
The first half explains in detail the concept of self-hypnosis and the various ways to enter a trance state with clear instructions and lots of helpful explanations of and comparisons between the different methods. The second half is broken down into chapters that deal with specific areas such as: increasing confidence, stopping smoking etc. My reason for wanting to learn about self-hypnosis was to use it as a method of pain relief for chronic pain and I have already begun to notice improvement in my own situation as a result of putting into practise the methods recommended.
It is also written in a wonderfully engaging way with simple examples from the experience of the authors,
Another very good part of the book is that it shows you many different ways to "do" the hypnosis part of "self-hypnosis".
It also covers specific issues and problems such as smoking that hypnosis seems to be very good in helping people to actually stop - especially when all else has previously failed.
If this type if stuff interests you then this is a very good investment and one of many books I would recommend you to purchase.
With hypnosis I sometimes recommend this book, hypnotherapy by Dave Elman, anything by Milton Erickson, the answer within by Steve Lankton and 10 random books on the subject. A couple that are recent and some classics.
This will put you in good stead if you ever choose to delve a little deeper in the field of hypnosis...

Not knowing much about this subject, this book gave me a good starting point to understand self-hypnosis.
Lot of examples, well explained.
