4. & 3. Matt Damon and Ben Affleck
These two best friends have more in common than being multi-talented actors, screenwriters, and producers: They also both quit smoking using hypnosis. Smoke-free for ten years, Matt has told Parade magazine, “Once you realize the consequences, it’s no longer an option for you to smoke. I think that applies to any addiction.” (Source: iVillage)
Ben was compelled to quit by his also-famous wife, Jennifer Garner, when she became pregnant with their daughter, Violet. To stay quit, Ben has reportedly kept himself busy with household projects and spending time with his young children. (Source: contactmusic)
While the jury is still out as to whether hypnosis is as effective as counseling in helping people quit (Source: “Hypnotherapy for smoking cessation”), it’s a popular choice among celebrities, and it worked for these two. Regardless, quitting smoking can help you find more time to invest
in your own household projects and to spend with your loved ones.
