Anyway I still hesitated and continued to smoke. I have been a smoker since I was 15 and I am now 55. I had tried everything by the way, patches, liquids that make ciggies taste awful, chewing gum, lozenges, acupuncture. Now patches did work a bit, but when I felt like a cig I would take the patch off and have one then put it back on again, obviously never getting free! Oh and may I say that I watched my mum with her oxygen tanks and finally die an awful death because of smoking, did it stop me, no that didn't either I’m ashamed to say. 


Well I decided to ring Julie. I decided I was willing to lose the money rather than never try at all and I am glad that I did. It was the 29th May and it was a lovely day. I took two cigs with me and I stood outside her building smoking my last ciggie (or not as I had one in my bag for the way home). I observed several people outside probably lunch breaks, but all smoking and I thought if she is that good why are people smoking outside her building. But then thought how ridiculous of me, not everyone wants to stop, I did, I had been trying for years. 


Anyway back to the point Julie was fabulous she was very friendly and got straight to it. After the session she gave me a bottle of water and the waste bin, waste bin you may think strange, but it was for the cig she knew that I had in my bag, very clever. I caught the bus home and was glad I did, I don’t think I would have liked to drive, I felt a wee bit strange, not ill or anything but a bit spaced out if you know what I mean. By the time I got to Bramley I was fine, we were having a barbecue, I rang my kids and all I could say is I’m not sure if its worked but I haven’t had a cig yet! 


That folks was 3 months ago and I am still not smoking, I don’t think about cigs, I don’t fancy cigs, I don’t over eat either in fact I was overweight when I went and I am now half a stone lighter, you see she incorporates not eating more into the session. All I can say is that I talk about Julie all the time I shout from the rooftops I even have an interest in NLP, and I am convinced that this didn’t just work for me, this would work for anybody. My partner promised that if it worked he would go but he hasn't and won't because he really does not want to stop, well it’s his lungs not mine (he smokes outside) and he knows if he goes to Julie he will definitely stop. How bizarre! Anyway it works folks and my next adventure with Julie is to build my self-confidence.


Make that appointment, give up the weed, I feel fantastic and one last word I bought the Wii fit with what I have saved so far, pick up that phone! 


Thanks Julie
