ANCHOR LEAD: How many times have you tried to stop smoking? Brian Osuch has more on one proven method that can really help you kick the habit. (:59)
SCRIPT: Lifestyles, I'm Brian Osuch. Although smoking has been proven to cause lung cancer, over 43-million Americans still smoke on a regular basis. Certified Hypnotherapist, Kerry Gaynor has helped thousands of people quit the habit over the past 30 years.
CUT: (Gaynor) I think a lot of people are so immersed in their addictions that they're frightened that they can't live without it. I think most people are terrified of beating their addiction.
SCRIPT: He says it's not about beating the addiction; it's about saving your life. And he knows how to do it… that's why he developed The Kerry Gaynor Method,
CUT: (Gaynor) I developed a program that enables people to quit smoking without suffering, without going through withdrawal. People don't need to be frightened anymore.
SCRIPT: And how does it work?
CUT: (Gaynor) What I'm trying to teach them is it's transformative. They have to go from not getting it, to getting it. The smoker doesn't realize their life is in danger – so they can't access their instinct for survival. Once I get them connected to that, that power is infinite and they can use that in conjunction with hypnosis to defeat the addition.
