What do we all think?  rubschin:

We went to one of those hypnosis shows in the village. It is entertainment only but at the beginning of the show they guy ran a 'test' on the audience to see who he could affect. About half of the audience as it happens including LL. It had no effect on me but then I'm rather sceptical about that sort of thing...

So he chose about six 'volunteers' (including LL) and got them to do silly things while 'under his power'...

I'm sure none of them had prior knowledge or relationship with the hypnotist. A couple of them I thought were just playing along with it, pretending to sweep up, etc. but some of the others (including LL) seemed genuinely under his control and be able to believe that they were in several unlikely situations and act out the part...

So it appears from my non-scientific analysis that certain people can be influenced by hypnotism.

Which raises the obvious question, why was the guy doing a show in a bar in Pissouri for €50 per night and not sitting on a multi-million Dollar yacht in the Caribbean having convinced other yacht owners to 'invest' in him...?

If you are serious about wanting to quit I did come up with a (so far) foolproof method but it's not one to take lightly.

You have referred to this vaguely terrifying method before. So what is it? And does it involve microwaves or explosives?  scared2:

Basically buy a case of cigarettes and eat the lot (I was running on no sleep and was asked before my first cup of coffee so was feeling a little evil at the time).

I did say it was a method not to be taken lightly, the experience at both ends has been described as absolutely horrific to the point where it is impossible to even look at a cigarette without feeling ill...  angel1

Trying to stop smoking noooo:

I used to smoke 40 a day but I stopped over 20 years ago using a hypnotist, although it took two attempts…

I’m glad I did tho, you just don’t realise how much you actually stink of fags when you are smoking.  noooo: 

The worst thing is, however, that I occasionally dream that I am smoking a cigarette again and I am gutted. I feel so relieved when I wake up and realise that it was only a dream… and the price now is outrageous…

I was put 'under' with Albatross by Fleetwood Mac... still wary when I hear the tune now, especially if I am driving...
