Hey Uri!
Thank you for doing that “Anti-smoke-campaign” yesterday on Fenomen.
You made me aware of how much damage I am causing my lungs by smoking. And the fact that I’m not just causing damage to myself but also to other people by passive smoking makes me feel really bad. I as a smoker is causing pain to myself as well as to other people. And I am poisoning the Earth by every cigarette I smoke.

I’ve been smoking since 5 years back now and I’ve tried to quit earlier a couple of times without succeeding. I even wrote a song about how dangerous addiction as smoking is. The song is called “Life is dancing with death” and I wrote it last year. When I write whether it is a poem or a song I usually use pseudonyms.
Because I want the reader or the listener to get their own opinion and maybe catch an another idea of what it’s about. As in this case I call the cigarette for: She and her

“Now she’s a part of my life
I can’t break up, we’re like husband and wife
We’re closed up tight
She’s my death and I’m her life”

I think I know why I decided to stop smoking, it’s because of you. Of what you said, did and showed. People have told me to stop before, but I didn’t listen. Because when they told me, I can tell you that they sounded kinda indifferent, like they really didn’t care. So I didn’t take it seriously.
But when I watched and listened to you yesterday. I felt and saw that you meant every single word you said. And it caught my attention!

But I must admit that I smoked a cigarette after your show. While I was smoking it, I started to picture me my neighbours oldest kid, he’s around 6 years old, he’s very young and very cute. I saw him lying in a hospital bed, suffering from lung cancer that he’s got from passive smoking, caused by me and other smokers.
I stood beside the bed and watched him die. It was terrible and I burst into tears. So everytime I wanna smoke I’ve started to imagine myself that this is happening.
Because in the reality it could happen if I continue to smoke. And I don’t want to be responsible for some peoples death.

After I had seen that “possible future event” in my head. I just couldn’t enjoy smoking anymore, so I stubbed the cigarette and said loud to myself: “I won’t let this happen. I’m done with smoking, I quit with this shit!”
Then I throw the rest of the cigarettes away. 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.
Now I will focus on my career and to continue to make the world a better place!

“I deserve the best. I will demand the best. I will settle for nothing less.”

Thank you for your belief, inspiration, energy and love.

“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.
