This article was in today's paper and I think you will ALL find this VERY VERY interesting.

I'm going to see if I can get an appointment with a therapist who does this

Has anyone ever done this before

Here is a part of the article
Please go read the entire article and let me know what you think

The Saboteur Within

The Unconscious Mind is a warehouse of hidden beliefs that govern how we live. The use of neuro linguistic programming is rising as people try to live happier lives

The woman was terrified of riding on elevators. She hadn't always been. The fear simply came out of nowhere one day.

Suddenly, getting to work was a nightmare: Her office was on the 40th floor of a Pennsylvania office tower.

Worse, the terror started to spread. Crossing bridges began to get her heart palpitating.

Desperate, she went to a clinical psychologist.

He decided to use a therapy called neuro linguistic programming to root out the cause of the phobia.

I've not heard of this type of therapy before; as Meg said, it will be interesting to see how this works on other issues like anxiety.  Thanks for sharing this with us.

Take care,

Well I really hope to get an appointment with a NLP therapist and will let you know.
It looks like it's a very promising therapy for many mental issues, and yes, including the addiction to smoking.
