From some of the Stanford Method’s Smoking Cessation Clients:
“This program changed my life. I participated in the Stanford Method’s Smoking Cessation Seminar at Credit Suisse and I was not expecting much. This was just one more attempt of several over the years to kick a nasty habit.” “Following the session, we were given a CD to listen to as reinforcement, which I listened to religiously every day commuting home from work. Not only did I never again even think about smoking, it was as if I never smoked to begin with.” “I was always a health-conscious person, despite my addiction to cigarettes, but now all movement in that positive direction was without effort or strain. I listened to the CD for about two months, looking forward to it’s relaxing and soothing impact as well as the positive messages.” “It has been four years now. I know that I will never smoke again and I am the healthiest and fittest that I have ever been. Thank you Pat for guiding me in becoming the best that I can be.” -Monica P.
“I took the Stanford Method’s Smoking Cessation Program. Before that, I smoked from age 14 to age 52. It was three packs a day. Now, I feel like a new man. My skin looks better. My attitude is better. This has been a life changing experience for me and I’ll never smoke again.” -Roy C.
“I kneel down at night and thank God that the Stanford Method helped me to be able to stop smoking. After forty years, I quit and it totally changed my life.” -Chris C.
“I am still smoke free a year later…. still can’t believe it!” -Karen D.
“I not only stopped smoking but I didn’t gain weight! I am a believer…” -Paula B.
“My work with the Stanford Method has given me more motivation- an extra drive to push myself to new levels of achievement. The coping skills that I’ve learned have improved every area of my life. And yes, I stopped smoking too!” -Wayne M.
“I started smoking in 1972 and for the following 35 plus years, I smoked one to two packs a day. Whenever I contemplated quitting, my biggest fear would arise. It wasn’t that I couldn’t quit. I always knew I could quit. My biggest fear was that I wouldn’t be able to remain a non-smoker. So, why quit at all?” “What happened? I don’t know. I just know that the urges to smoke were somehow manageable for me. I listened to my CD daily and the urges became less intense and less frequent.” “Today is my two month anniversary as a non-smoker.” -Ed H.
From The Monthly Wellness Newsletter for Estée Lauder June 2010
“In December 2009 Ann Worth, who works at our Whitman, Islandia site, completed the Stanford Method’s two-day Smoking Cessation program.” “Ann smoked for 35 years and had tried to stop three other times but, she said, “this is the only thing that worked for me. After the program I had no desire to smoke again and literally the next day after I stopped smoking, I stopped coughing. I can walk up the stairs now without huffing and puffing. It’s been six months and I feel like I’ve never ever smoked. I’m eating healthy now, more fruits and vegetables and I have more interest in doing healthy things. I want to live to see my grandchildren. I feel very good and I’m so proud that I’ve accomplished something that was so hard to do. I’ve recommended the program to friends and one has stopped smoking for a week now and feels good.”
“For remaining smoke-free for six months, Ann will be reimbursed for the cost of the program.” “CONGRATULATIONS ANN on your Smoking Cessation!”
