I’m going to share a story. 🙂 Well, the snow was coming down here in the Seattle area (I know you know!–the media was calling it “snowmageddon”) and Michael and I had committed to conduct a hypnosis training. We don’t like to cancel and/or disappoint—so we decided to stay in a hotel overnight close to the training location to be SURE we could make it. We did make it.
That actually was a lot of fun spending the night there! Nice hotel. It has a no-smoking policy. (Neither Michael or I smoke, so that was no hardship for us.) However, I read something on the check-in materials that I found surprising. This hotel is SO serious about its nonsmoking status, that if you smoke in one of their rooms (even one cigarette), they will charge you a “$250 room recovery fee.”
Wow! It costs the hotel guest $250 so that the hotel can sanitize the room after smoking occurred in there–to remove the smell from draperies, furniture, rugs, I imagine. Talk about the cost of smoking!
Now I have to ask myself: wouldn’t a person who smokes rather pay to sanitize his life and body rather than someone else’s hotel room? Wouldn’t that money be a better investment toward healthy? A life recovery fee, rather than a room recovery fee? Seems so to me. And I know how you can do it!
Hypnosis works for smoking cessation. In fact, this weekend, at World Hypnotism Day here in Bellevue, I’m presenting a free public talk on just that. Click on my events button on the top of this page to find all the details.
A “room recovery fee.” Make it a life recovery instead. Smoking isn’t cool any more. It’s not socially acceptable. If you’re interested in stopping, I can help. Check out my website: http://www.stopsmokingseattle.com.
Personally, I’m glad the snow is gone. 🙂
