Ellen DeGeneres decided to improve her health, the environment of the people around her, reduce litter, and set an example when she decided to quit smoking this week. She was hypnotized by Paul McKenna who had her bring up scary and uncomfortable memories related to smoking, and poof, she was cured! Hopefully it will stick. See the video over at TMZ.com.
Are you a smoker? Here is a government resource on how to quit.
Update: Ellen writes on her blog about the smoking. She asks her fans, “What have you done to help you quit smoking? Let me know because if the hypnotist doesn’t work, I may need some help.”
