This "Imposed Amnesia" Thing Is Sweet.


"The reason it has been so successful with me is because my colleague imposed amnesia when I was in hypnosis, and no other therapy, to my knowledge, can do this. I forgot about it completely. I never feel the urge to pick up a pack of cigarettes."
Geoffrey Knight

Waist High would like to thank Portland hypnotherapist
Geoffrey Knight for helping her to bring to an end a filthy 21 year habit. It has been 14 days since Waist High paid a visit to Mr. Knight, and she is happy to report that the above imposed amnesia thing is true. My memory of the pleasure of smoking is gone.

You, my fine readers, have been present for two of my approximately 7 failed "attempts" at smoking cessation, and it was during this last failed "attempt" that I finally realized that my desire to smoke was greater than my desire to quit. Enter Geoffrey Knight.

Please read Portland Mercury reporter John Dooley's
tale of his visit to Mr. Knight. His story manages to make a 60 cigarette a day habit seem funny.
