I don't think it fits under the title of "self-hypnosis", but I tried a very simple auto-suggestion method a while ago, and I can say I had some
success with it.
Basicly, all u have to do is to find a small rope, u can chose a color that have a special meaning to your-self (I chose green, the color of life, and
one of my favorite color), tie as many nod in it as u can (they said 40 in the text that I had read, but I don't really think it matters).
U can basicly use in anywhere anytime, but I guess one would have better result doing it in a relaxed state, maybe like while meditating or something
similar. All u have to do is make a "sentance" that represent what u want to suggest to your-self, and while touching each node in the rope, repeat
that sentance mentally one time for each node, and repeat as necessary.
When I really wanted to convine my self of the "power" of auto-suggestion, I used to wear this rope around my neck or wrist. It kinda worked for me,
might not work for everyone but I think it may still be worth trying. Good luck beating those cravings
I'll send out some positive thoughts for u.
You're a strong minded individual, from what I know of you, I'll sure you'll succeed and realise how ridiculous is this need of smoking.
May the force be with u !
