There is a rule-of-thumb that it takes 21 days to form a new habit. It can also take 21 days to break an old habit. When you break the smoking habit by talking to your subconscious through through quit smoking hypnosis, you are writing over the old I-am-a-smoker tape in your mind with a new I-am-a-nonsmoker tape. The worst part of quitting is over in about a week, but getting rid of the craving can take much longer. At about 21 days, though, it becomes much easier to resist smoking and you can consider yourself a nonsmoker. Note that it is possible to be completely free of the urge to smoke after one session with a hypnotherapist, and that may be what happens with you.
