Hypnosis and Tough Clients

You always get one soft bastard who resists.

When inducing a first hypnotic trance, you always ask the client two questions and you do not pass GO, you do not go any further, until you get "YES" to both of them.

One. Do I have your full, informed consent to do this?

Two. Do you do this freely and of your own free will, without any form of coercion whatsoever?

And still, despite giving their firm assurances of their consent and 100% willingness to trance, they will refuse to accept the triggers, or to allow the instructions to activate, even if these instructions will save their life - such as quit smoking or quit drinking instructions.

Some blockheads have such a fear of the loss of control that they will even fake a trance, just to play along, then spring up as if to say "AHA! I BEAT THE HYPNOSIS!"

To which I calmly reply "Congratulations. You have amazing strength of will. Good luck using it now to beat your lung cancer / cirrhosis / emphysema / gambling habit. Ah, but you can't, can you?"

Stupidity and vanity bring their own reward. Slow self-destruction. Good riddance to such blockheads.

So speak.
