In recognition of the 36th Annual Great American Smokeout, an effort of the American Cancer Society, local hypnotherapist Barbara Britain, pictured above, in association with the Artesia Chamber of Commerce and Artesia General Hospital, hosted a group session at the Ocotillo Performing Arts Center Thursday to help smokers kick the habit. Nearly 30 individuals attended the session, where Britain talked about the dangers of smoking and what happens to the body when you quit smoking. Britain used hypnosis to unlock the subconscious mind, which acts as a home-base for habits, and guided the individuals to let go of their smoking habits. “I’m on a mission to make Artesia smoke free,” said Britain, a quitter herself. “I see the damage smoking can do to people; smoking controls people, and people don’t like being controlled, people like being free.” Britain has practiced hypnotherapy since 1999 and said most of her clients are looking for help to quit smoking. Britain said hypnotherapy is 80 to 85 percent effective with a single session. For more information on quitting smoking, call the American Cancer Society at 1-800-227-2345.
