Our expert says:
Zyban is very effective, but no such product should be used entirely on its own --- use it again, but along with a proper counsellor to help you recognize and deal better with the various triggers that push you towards smoking, Hypnosis is NOT the treatment of choice for stopping smoking, even if you are a good hypnotic subject. As anyone is allowed to call themselves a hypnotist or hypnotherapist, as there are no registrable qualifications for this, there's no easy way to find a competent one --- but one rule is handy NEVER EVER go to any sort of hypnotist who is not a fully trained, qualified and registered mental health professional ( a psychiatrist or psychologist ). You dont want to hire a carpenter with only one single tool in his workbox. A shrink could prescribe Zyban, provide counselling and support, AND add some hypnosis if this seemed likely to help, after an assessment by someone unbiased rather than devoted to finding customers for their one method
