I was an unhealthy smoker. It was so easy, just like having a visit with a friend! I have never been so relaxed in my life. Everything I mentioned or said was heard and felt like it was just for me. I am feeling relaxed and free of smoking for the first time in over 20 years. I would recommend anyone who wants to quit to come and see Lynda Petterwood.

I was embarrassed before being the odd one. I felt disrespectful for the hospital patients when I was working with me being a smoker. The whole session was very relaxing, calming and soothing. Lynda Petterwood makes you feel very comfortable and is very honest. Life feels more fulfilling now, and I will have more fun.
Steve Massey, Gold Coast
Nearly 50 years of smoking was killing me. Lynda Petterwood has helped me feel free and get rid of that awful habit. Oh to breathe fresh air again. Hallelujah!!
Puhi Hadfield, Gold Coast
Life - smoking was disgusting, smelly, embarrassing, it was expensive and inhibited relationships with my in-laws. During the hypnosis I experienced a euphoric inner peace, the most relaxed feeling I have ever had. I feel relieved that my addiction with smoking is going from my life and I am excited about my new healthy future. Thank you Lynda Petterwood.
I was a smoker for 35 years and on 35-40 cigs a day. (gross). I had tried giving up a few times but just couldn't quit. Then I heard about Sara Dobson and after talking to her for ages I booked in to stop smoking. I was nervous but she made me feel comfortable and confident this was going to work.
It's been 2 years since I became a non smoker. Wow what a milestone. It's been soooo easy. No struggling with any thoughts of smoking, I can be around people who smoke and it doesn't bother me at all. No cravings, no crankiness. How easy was that !!!! I kick myself that I didn't quit 12 months before when I first heard about Sara. I can now laugh without coughing. I can now walk long distances and look forward to it every day. I enjoy being able to breathe deeply now. I love smelling the ocean, flowers , a Sunday roast , my grandsons baby breath . So many things that make me smile. I love the FREEDOM of being a non smoker. This has been the best investment. My gains are huge and I've saved almost $20,000 already!
Please , if you want to give up , go see I Quit 4 Life. You can't put a price on health or your life. Invest in yourself. Choose to live.
Sara, I thank you . You gave me back my life. I will be forever grateful.

Sara asked me to write about my experience after quitting. I didn't do it for ages because I was too embarrassed to tell my story. It's been 9 months since I gave it away now and finally have the courage to tell my story. After 22 years of smoking I was so sick of having cigarettes control my life. I am a nurse for goodness sake and know what cigarettes do to you. I couldn't quit when I had the kids and I felt like there was little hope left for me. I was obsessed about covering up the smell of cigarettes on me when I was working because I would be horrified if any patients found out that I was a dirty smoker. Having my 6 year old son freak out every time he saw me have a smoke was just too much. I couldn't stand the tears any longer knowing they were caused by me - ouch! As the days got closer to quitting I began to feel excited and s***t scared. That was 9 months ago and I haven't looked back since my quit day. I'll never forget that day and I love my life now.

Sara is the 'REAL-DEAL' when it comes to getting off the smokes. After 45 years as a very heavy smoker and having tried every known Quit method ever invented, from gums to patches, mints, inhalers and medications, I resigned myself to being lifelong smoker until one day when a work colleague suggested I try hypnosis which had worked for him. Although sceptical, I thought I would give it a go. That was the best advice ever given to me and I am eternally grateful to my workmate, and of course to Sara who is a very dedicated and special person. For me the results were immediate and permanent!!! No withdrawals, no cravings in fact, to this day I feel as though I had never smoked at all. It has now been 4 years, more than 85,000 cigs not smoked and $58,000 dollars better off!!! and best of all, a good recovery and a much better quality of life, which is priceless. I have referred several people to Sara, all who know how heavy-a-smoker I used to be and they have also beaten the habit with Sara's help and that alone gives me a real buzz that in a small way, I have been able to help them. If you are a smoker and want to quit Sara Dobson will help you achieve a smoke free life.

I had been trying to stop smoking for years and had given up quitting - it was just too hard! One day I saw the local delivery man who I hadn't seen for ages and he looked amazing - years younger. I asked him what had changed in his life and he told me he had quit cigarettes by hypnosis with the regional Quit Specialist who is a clinical hypnotherapist. He said he felt like a million dollars and I was sold on the idea immediately. I was worried about packing on weight. I've now been off those filthy cigarettes for 7 months and I've got more energy than I've had in years. I feel great and have lost a few kilos. I've got more time and motivation so I'm walking the dog every day and love it.

I kept hearing about people who had quit smoking with I Quit 4 Life but thought it was like that all stage show bizzo and knew I would be able to do it cold turkey like I had years ago. Well a year later, I still hadn't gotten around to quitting and as far as I knew those people were all still ex smokers from I Quit 4 Life. I rang Sara Dobson and she sounded like she knew her stuff, she used to be a smoker herself so that made me feel more confident. She said she helps a lot of tradies like me and could do my session before I started work so that made it easy for me to book in. The last laugh was on me, it's 6 weeks since my session and I've not touched a cigarette. I just got my credit card bill and the money I've saved has covered the cost of my quit session and I have some extra! What a bonus - might take the wife and kids out for a treat on the weekend.

Smoking killed my Dad, Auntie and best mate. Then when I got asthma, diabetes and high blood pressure I figured I would be next. I felt hopeless and desperate. I read an article in the paper about I Quit 4 Life and that gave me hope because they give people a lifetime guarantee. Maybe this was my lifeline. That was almost 18 months ago and I'm proud to say that I'm a non smoker and getting healthier every day. I hardly ever need my puffer now, my blood pressure is almost normal and what's best of all is that the doc said if I keep off the smokes then I may be able to give the diabetes pills away by the end of this year. So if I can do this then anyone can - give it a go, you've got nothing to lose. I feel like I won lotto. Thanks mate.
Coleen - Innisfail
Best money I've ever spent on myself. Have saved $1000's already. Should have done it years ago. Feel bloody great now.
Vic - Gordonvale
When I stopped smoking after 40 years, it was like saying goodbye to an old friend who was always there for me, but this friend was controlling my life. Now this friend no longer has control over me I have become rejuvenated, I now think of how I was also affecting other people's health, I always have money in my purse, the money I have saved by not smoking is paying for a holiday and I have so much more time to do other things. (I never realised how much time I wasted when I was smoking). It's been a year since I quit and it still feels better and better every week. This is certainly an anniversary worth celebrating! Thank you Sara from Gemara Visions for the rest my life.
Diane - Innisfail QLD
I feel healthier already and very excited - like I have a secret! I somehow know that I'm going to have a fantastic future free from smoking.
Tracy - Townsville QLD
It feels great not to be worrying about where I'm going to find somewhere to smoke any more.
Tanya - Ravenshoe QLD
It's a good feeling to be a non smoker for the rest of my life. I can smell the tobacco on me now whereas I couldn't before. It feels easier to breath now.
John - Cooktown QLD
We're bettering our lives, protecting our children and their future by quitting smoking. We can walk away knowing we're smoke free for the rest of our lives.
Steve and Cassandra - Papua New Guinea
Of all the failures I've had in the past; patches, laser, gum, champix etc I feel like I've never smoked in my life - AMAZING! I will recommend this to anyone I meet that smokes in future. Five star process.
Ona - Perth WA
After 26 years of being a slave to nicotine, I'm on top of the world knowing that cigarettes no longer control my life. I'm free of that lifetime addiction to 60 smokes a day that were slowly killing me and keeping me broke. I was worried that I would gain weight but 9 months later I have tons of energy, feel alive and excited about every day. My skin, hair and body feel good and people tell me I look years younger frequently. I've saved $8,000 since I quit which has taken the pressure off our family in a very big way. If you are seious about giving up for good then use the specialists at I Quit 4 Life.

I am very pleased I decided to go ahead and do this program.
It was very easy and non invasive. I would recommend it to anyone considering giving up smoking. I was a packet of 30 a day smoker, I am now a non smoker!!!
Kellie - Sunbury, Victoria
It was so relaxing. I was totally in control. I feel so glad that I came. I am a non smoker. Before I came I had a totally different look at hypnosis, but now I see that there is nothing to be afraid of, it is just like meditation.
Jacqui - Bacchus Marsh, Victoria
I now feel I have the power to never smoke again. I have more motivation to do the things I've always wanted to do but never did.

I have been battling to quit smoking for so long that I had almost given up on myself - until I found Pamela. Now I am a proud non smoker. Pamela gave me all the strategies & tools I needed to Quit & I couldn't be happier, this is the best investment in myself that I have ever made.

After 20 years and numerous attempts, Quit Cigarettes in 60 Minutes was the quick and easy way to give up and I haven't felt like one since
Simon - Melton West, Victoria
Hi Adam, You may recall that I came back for a 2nd visit with you on Tuesday 26 October.
I am happy to report that I am a non-smoker - and loving every minute of being so !! I already feel so much better, health-wise - no longer wheezing, no more coughing. My sense of smell has dramatically improved - can smell the jasmine in flower, as I walk to my mailbox each day !!
Have definitely had a shift in my thinking - and I attribute that to your listening - thank you !

I smoked cigarettes for fifty years. Finally I got sick and tired of it so I got hypnotherapy by Pamela Course at Inspired for Success on 18/4/2009 and I haven't smoked since.
George. Wyndham Vale
I quit cigarettes with Pamela Course at Inspired for Success and have been a non smoker for 12 months. I am fitter than I was before. I am no longer embarrassed to be ducking out for a smoke during social situations. I have more time in my day for exercise and no longer have to make excuses to myself as to why I can't give up. I never think of cigarettes and even during tough stressful situations it is the furthest thing from my mind.
I had tried to give up smoking 'cold turkey' and never succeeded. I felt that relaxing my mind helped me to think more clearly about why I didn't want to smoke. It was so rewarding having Maureen Hamilton helping me and I feel confident and anticipate the future only breathing fresh air.
Delia Brown - Sherwood Qld
I now have the power to change my own life. I can now smile knowing I can do it and focus on other things in my life.
Margaret Townley - Bridgeman Downs Qld
Maureen Hamilton was and is delightful and supportive. The hypnosis was extremely relaxing. I accept what has been told to my subconscious and am now a non smoker! I am now really looking forward to a healthier happier and fuller life. Look out Fiji, here I come and I can't wait to take my boys overseas with me. Many thanks
