I have never smoked, even during the 60’s and 70’s when it was considered cool to smoke, when the dangers were not fully known, and when movie idols and rock stars were unwittingly promoting a killer habit, it just didn’t seem a natural thing to do for me.
For many years now I have helped people to stop smoking whenever I have had the opportunity, if I have a friend or family member who I find out has started smoking, I do everything I can to stop that person from smoking, and I’m very good at doing this, in fact it is very rare that I am unsuccessful.
A number of years ago I decided to build an element into my motivational lectures and my live international TV show “The Next Uri Geller” and other shows, to help audience members and viewers to stop smoking, and this has proven incredibly successful. Here are just a tiny fraction of the emails I receive from people who have attended my lectures who stopped smoking as a result:
“Thank you, dearest Uri, for scaring the daylights out of me – you made me quit smoking immediately! I don’t know how you did it, and I don’t care – I’m just so grateful to you.”
“I’ve been a smoker for 3 years and i have always hated it but never stopped. I just saw your show about “stop smoking” and THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART.. you made me stop. I never want to touch a cigarette again, I’m disgusted. You saved my life.”
“I watched you on the Swedish program “Fenomen” and you said that you would help us Swedes to stop smoking. after the program i took one cigarette, and didn’t feel anything, but today 3 days later. i almost vomited, because of the taste of it. So i have stopped smoking, thank you very much Uri”
“You told us to stop smoking, and i did. The taste was horrible!”
“I haven’t smoked today and I will never ever smoke again!Once again, thank you Uri! Without you I couldn’t have done this.”
“I’m a 12-years old boy and i listen when you talked about smoking. I will never smoke in my life.”
“For me it worket because I feel sick afterward trying one, and the same for my mother. It feels like paper in her mouth, she tells me.My mother is 59 years old and she started when she was 15, she did not believe in you until now.”
“I had smoked for 13 years but Ã„Â± quit smoking by the help of tv program FENOMEN which was shown in Turkey in 2008. He hypnotized the people who wanted to quit smoking.I haven’t smoked for 3 years.I am very happy. Thank you so much Uri.”
It always amazes me to receive emails such as these, and with all of the things that I motivate people to do, motivating people to stop this killer habit is right at the top of my schedule, along with motivating people to believe in themselves, to educate themselves and to develop their minds, to develop a positive mental attitude, and to become magnetized to the things they wish to be, to have and to do.
So I was very happy to discover recently while talking on my weekly slot on the Doug Stephan Good Day radio show (listen live every Tuesday at 13:00 GMT), that very strong new full colour graphic images are to be placed on Cigarette packets to help convince people to stop smoking.
We have seen imagery on cigarette packets previously, but these are far stronger and more emotive images that will help to better deliver the message home that smoking really does kill!
Please be warned before scrolling down, some viewers may find these images disturbing.
I know that imagery like this will not instantly stop everyone from smoking, but I am hoping that it will people to build a stronger desire to quit the habit, the stronger the desire to quit, the easier one finds it to achieve.

“Uri Geller gave an absolutely resonating talk on his life and career. He had every single magician in the room on the edge of their seats trying to digest as much information as they could. Uri emphasized that the path to frame is through uniqueness and charisma and that professional entertainers must be creative in their pursuits of success and never shy away from publicity.”

“The man is a natural magician. He does everything with great care, meticulous misdirection and flawless instinct. The nails are real, the keys are really borrowed, the envelopes are actually sealed, there are no stooges, there are no secret radio devices and there are no props from the magic catalogues.”

“I Have watched Uri Geller… I have seen that so I am a believer. It was my house key and the only way I would be able to use it is get a hammer and beat it out back flat again.”
