Stop Smoking


S. V. | Chantilly, VA

Emily Wang really helped me quit smoking when I tried every other solution. Working in healthcare I know the risks of smoking and tried several medications both prescription and over the counter as well as going “cold turkey.” But sadly nothing worked for me. Having tried everything else I decided to look into hypnosis. I decided to go with Emily after our initial phone conversation. She knew exactly what I was feeling and also was very calming to me. I felt very comfortable being with her and did not even notice after our first session that I had not smoked for 4 days. I was surprised I went four days with no withdrawal symptoms and thought at this point that she must really know how to help people work through their issues. After working with her I have quit smoking and have also reduced anxiety with family and work. Best part of it all is that I did not gain any weight which I know worries many smokers. It is a process you really have to want to do and work through to achieve your goals of being a healthier you!

After almost 30 years of smoking a pack and a half a day I am finally free!

Diana M. | Damascus, MD

When I first read the testimonials I was very skeptical, I have been trying to quit smoking for years and have tried so many ways and methods, including hypnosis itself where the hypnotist put me in a room and talked to me through headphones telling me how I would no longer smoke. Needless to say that only lasted a week.  Never-the-less, because I had made up my mind I was going to quit smoking, even if I didn't really want to, I decided to see Dr. Wang and give her a chance, the way I saw it, I had nothing but a few dollars in a little time to lose if it didn't work and everything to gain if it did.

Dr. Wang, to my amazement, worked with me One on One and helped me release so many of the misbeliefs I had accumulated during the years in relation to my perceived self.  She "gave me permission" to feel the pain and anger I've kept in me for almost forty years.  She felt those feelings with me, after our sessions I could see that she was as drained as I was.  Interesting enough, even though the smoking itself was never addressed,  I can say that after almost 30 years of smoking a pack and a half a day I am finally free!

One night while smoking a cigarette I realized that I didn't need to do that anymore.  It was as if I had been given permission to be free of it; I have been empowered.  She guided me to change the perception of myself and the situations that are no longer real, but that in some way my mind considered them as real as they once were.  I walked in a scared little girl and on my fourth and last session, I walked out a confident grown woman, smoke free and with a new purpose for my life.  Thank you Dr. Wang, I highly recommend you to anyone who reads this.

By the way, don't be fool by her kind and quiet nature, she is quite avid at helping aching souls and unlike many other therapists I've gone to before, she really does care.  She never tells you what to do and doesn't just sit there, she teaches you how to help yourself. She reminds me of the old saying, "Give a man a fish and you feed him for one day, teach him how to fish and you feed him for a life time."  But, Dr. Wang goes above and beyond; she not only gives you the fish, she ALSO teaches you HOW to fish.  All the best.
