Connor Riley's Review
Connor Stopped Smoking After 5 Years!
JOHN: This is John from Mark Patrick Seminars and I'm on the phone with Connor. Hey, Connor. Can you tell everybody a little bit about yourself and where you're from?
CONNOR: Yes. My name is Connor Riley. I am from Fairhaven [inaudible 00:00:12], Massachusetts, around that area. Twenty-four-year-old waste water operator. I have a girlfriend. And that’s about it.
JOHN: Connor, how long did you smoke for?
CONNOR: I smoked for about five to six years. About a pack a day.
JOHN: Connor, give us a couple of examples of the things you’ve tried to help stop smoking.
CONNOR: First I tried cold turkey and—I mean, I got a couple months in and I just went back to it. I tried the nicotine gum. Same thing. It worked for a couple of weeks, went back to it. For a couple of weeks, I tried the nicotine patches, didn’t work. I tried the Chantix, didn’t work and I ended up getting some really horrible nightmares and it was just not the medication for me. And I probably wouldn’t suggest it to anyone to be honest with you. So, kind of my last whim before I went to the hypnosis thing.
JOHN: Gotcha. Connor, what we the longest you stopped for?
CONNOR: I would say the longest I stopped for probably consecutively would be three to four months. I’m not exactly sure on the exact timeframe.
JOHN: Gotcha, gotcha. Connor, what were your expectations coming to a Mark Patrick seminar?
CONNOR: I really didn’t know much about it. My girlfriend did some research and signed me up. She really, really, really wanted me to stop smoking. So, I really didn’t too much about it. I was kind od iffy about it but I decided to go in there with an open mindset and just said, hopefully this will work.
JOHN: Good stuff. Connor, what changes have you noticed since the seminar?
CONNOR: Positive things that I’ve noticed—I mean, they’ve all been positive. If I wake up like coughing was never an issue with me but like my breathing. I have a lot more stamina. Everything I wear smells better. I smell really good now. I don’t smell like a walking ashtray which is good. I’ve saved money, a decent amount of money. My car smells better.
JOHN: Sounds great. Sounds like a lot of positive changes. That’s really good stuff. Connor, if there’s one statement or a word of advice you would give someone thinking about coming to a seminar, what would it be?
JOHN: I don’t know if I have one word but I’d definitely say even if you’re skeptical about and you don’t think it’s going to work, just really go in there with an open mindset and just be really accepting of what they’re going to offer you because it worked for me. I’ve known a couple of other people it worked for. I think you really need to go in there with an open mindset and be accepting of it. I no longer feel the need to smoke. Thank you, Mark Patrick.
