*A note from Garry:
Some people have asked me how I became involved with hypnosis. In 1982, I was a 2-pack a day cigarette smoker. After a year of trying to quit smoking (I refer to 1982 as my year from hell), in February of 1983 I went for a hypnotherapy session in Long Island, NY and after one session I became an ex-smoker! I couldn’t believe it! After the year from hell, I walked away from smoking and never had an urge for another cigarette!

I was so impressed with the power and effect of hypnosis, I began to read everything I could on the subject. I knew would be doing hypnosis in the future. In 1998, I had the opportunity to learn and be certified in hypnotherapy and it has been a part of my life ever since.
