In the week of national No Smoking Day, Archway hypnotist Caldwell Smythe reveals he is on a one-man mission to stub out cigarettes.
"I feel the number of people dying each year from smoking is unacceptable. I'm working to help stop this awful curse," he said.
Mr Smythe started his company, Tranceworks, two years ago. Trained by Paul McKenna and Richard Bandler, he uses hypnosis and neuro-linguistic programming to replace peoples' dependence with feelings of happiness and well-being.
No Smoking Day is on Wednesday and aims to reduce tobacco-related illness and death by publicising the support services available to people who want to quit.

Mr Smythe said: "Everyone needs back-up. I provide that. After the session, everyone receives a CD they are supposed to listen to every day for 28 days and my personal phone number. I tell them they can call me anytime. And people take me up on it."
No Smoking Day has helped more than a million people quit since the first day in 1984.
