With a little help from a friend, you can find out if your a good canidate for hypnosis. Noticing a correlation between hypnotizability and eye rolling, Hypnosis researcher Herbert Speigel designed this simple test.

~Roll your eyes back while slowly lowering your lids.

~When your eyes are about halfway closed have a friend check your eyes out, the greater amount of white showing, the easier it is to hypnotize you.

I know I can roll mine all the way back, can you? Can you be hypnotized?

    Yes, I was hypnotized almost 20 years ago to quit smoking and have not smoked since.

    yeah I think so, Although watching some of the shows kinda makes you reconcider even trying. Ive seen some where they had men thinking they were woman, and stuff like that.

    Yeah but I think the self hypnosis is more for those people who cant sleep or something.

    Apparently I have been by society for many decades. I pay my taxes and comply with "their," rules, but I am not sure why. I feel a bit like Neo in the Matrix, but know not how to escape.

    As to your real question, I dont know. Folks seem to give up answers under sodium pentathol, but that is not hypnosis.

    really, you dont start barking everytime the phone rings or act like a monkey when you hear the word bannanna do you? Im scared to even try that stuff cause you never know what they could instill in your mind.

    no...that wears off within days...just kidding...no...it was done by a Dr. in a very controlled setting....what I did have was this awful taste in my mouth everytime I even thought about having a cig.....They gave me the urge to drink water (from a bottle) everytime I wanted a cig.....this helped wash all the toxins out....I drank a ton of water....I also went from 2-3 packs a day (for 19 yrs) to none......I quit smoking March 4 2002........
