Here is a brief EFT story that should give hope to some addiction clients. Angelique used tapping for many possible causes for her smoking addiction but made no real headway until she addressed her rebellion as a young person.

Hi Gary,

I just wanted to share my experience with others. I wrote to you some time ago about how I cleared up a 3 year episode of eczema with EFT. Well I recently set out to finally break free of the addiction of cigarettes. I smoked since I was 13. I am now 31 and I tried everything...including some tapping.

Well this time I was serious so I tapped on everything I thought would be related to the addiction. This included the reason I started and the various "trigger times" for me. Nonetheless, there was still something left. Guess what it was.....


After I tapped on that, I was done. I also made sure that I tapped on the child inside of me needing to rebel. What is even more interesting is that my boyfriend is trying to quit so after 2 days of not smoking I said ok I will have a last one with you. I couldn't even inhale the cigarette. My body wouldn't let me.

I am so excited about EFT, I tell everyone about it and now I am confident enough to start my Hypnotherapy practice. I just want people to consider the rebellion aspect of addiction, especially when they start young because I think that is a driving force.

Thanks Gary,
