Thank you for not letting my life go up in smoke! I love you forever and wish you and your family only “Happy Days”.

As her teacher at UCLA in Individual and Group Counseling Skills, I feel she has a genuine talent and enthusiasm for this line of work.  I would recommend her services to those who need to stop smoking.”

Jimmy Pankow

"As a 17 year-old quitting vaping …has proven to be one of my biggest accomplishments up to this point in my life. I was skeptical and scared when I started but had tried every way I knew how to quit and was out of options.  Nothing had worked.  After reading about this program, I chose to give it a try. I did what was asked of me and had faith that it would work.  Now, nearly five months later, I feel better mentally and physically. Quitting vaping was the first steppingstone to taking control of my life. Not only have I developed a sense of pride for stopping, but my self-confidence has improved tremendously in almost every aspect of my life. As a vaper I was given a life, and now I have the ability to choose the life I want to live. Thank you, Carol.”

Mac Woodman

"Carol's smoking cessation program changed my life! I went from smoking 30 cigarettes per day and feeling enslaved to my addiction, to quitting successfully. I am living a full life, it is like night and day. I am more successful at work and enjoy old hobbies again. I have more time to take my kids to do all of their activities without the constant interruption of smoking. Words cannot express my gratitude!"


“I had tried hypnotherapy, books, quitting cold turkey, the patch, Nicorette, vaping – nothing could keep me from smoking.  5 years ago, I asked two long time smokers how they were able to quit, and both of them had been to see Carol, had used her method and had stayed stopped! So, I had to try it for myself.  Not only did she help me quit smoking, but she helped me get to a place where it was my choice.  I’m 100% free from the shackles of nicotine for over 5 years now! Carol is so kind, and her method truly works.  I am grateful every day not to be a smoker and I owe it to Carol! 100/100 would recommend, if you feel you can’t quit, this is the method that truly works!”

Alexander Werner

“Carol Willard is my angel disguised as a woman!  For years I tried EVERYTHING available to try and stop smoking - patch, gum, lozenges, drugs, hypnotherapy, traditional therapy, books, acupuncture - you name it, I tried it.  Then, through the recommendation of a dear friend, I found Carol and she miraculously, and I mean miraculously, helped me to stop smoking. If you want to stop smoking, Carol is the secret sauce!  Carol changed my life, and I am forever grateful to her.”

Wendy S.

“I am sure everyone reading this has been impacted by Carol in one way or another but my experience with what she has taught me has really changed my life.  My issue had everything to do with vaping.  By trusting in her and allowing myself to be honest and vulnerable with her, I’ve learned more than I could’ve possibly asked for.  The thought process and mindset she has taught me has translated to every aspect of my life as well.  I feel like I’ve finally taken control of my life and the direction I want it to go. God and Carol have helped me through this entire process, and I can’t express how thankful I am.”

Ness Aguilar

“I smoked, off & on, for 40 years and tried numerous ways to quit...I couldn't maintain any program I tried. THIS worked for me in FIVE DAYS!  it's been five years now & I've told numerous friends & family members about Carol's approach because it was EASY...Carol, my family, my friends & my LUNGS thank you!”

Mary Cocril

“I’d like to take the opportunity to express my tremendous satisfaction upon having survived three weeks without smoking.  After smoking at least two packs a day for over seven years, and having failed at quitting many times, I am pleasantly surprised at the relative ease of your method.  From fresher breath to a healthier body, it was worth every penny.”

Mark Fenton

“Thank you for over a year and a half of health and happiness. Love you no matter where you are.”


“I believe your work with me was extremely helpful and supportive.  I never thought I’d be off cigarettes for a year and 3 months.  Looking back, it seems like a tremendous accomplishment.  I have the strength to continue making choices to not smoke.  Thank you.”


I just want you to know how much you and your program have done for me.  I was an on and off smoker for over 20 years.  For the last 16, more on than off.  I had quit numerous times, mostly going cold turkey. 

The five days we spent together (well at least 2 hours for 5 days) proved to be a miracle.  The program opened so much more for me than just relieving me of my addiction, it also gave me choice in so many other areas of my life.  The tools of your program are truly the answer for me.  I would never have believed that I would be totally free of cigarettes.  Now, 8 months later, the thought of smoking is a distant memory.  Sure, ever so often I get a thought about what it would be like, then I think of what it really would be like, and the desire is totally gone.  Pretty amazing.

You made it so safe, which helped immensely. Thank you for coming into my life and giving me the gift of freedom from smoking.

Debra Magit

"I thought that stopping smoking would be unnerving, but I was surprised to find that with this method, the experience was quite manageable. Thank You!”

Jeff Beaudoin

I never, never thought that I would be this successful. I only smoked 5 or 6 cigarettes a day, but I smoked them everyday for over 10 years and I couldn't quit.  I tried many times - the longest time being one month, but I never felt that I had a choice in the matter. The nicotine ran me, I was trapped in my head and I never had the confidence or the tools to quit.  You gave me the tools that I needed to succeed in my objective to stop smoking.  I'm 6 months nicotine free and miles away from my old smoking ways.  I still have a choice if I want to smoke or not, and I choose not to smoke!  Thanks for my freedom.

Christopher Cass

"As I complete my third week without any of those old nasty cigarettes, I’d like to thank you.  You didn’t stop me from smoking; you taught me a whole new way of looking at things which frees me to choose to smoke or not to smoke each time the desire comes up."

Graham Timbes

"What I felt, when I first walked into Carol’s stop smoking class, was safe—that feeling you get when you know you’re right where you’re supposed to be, even if you don’t know how things are going to turn out. There aren’t enough words to express my gratitude. All I can do is to rest my hands over my heart."

Margaret Serich

"It was almost a miracle that this one special woman became the only person in the world who could help Garry stop smoking."

Barbara Marshall from her book One Way Ticket to L.A.

"Your enthusiasm for your work and understanding of the problem are obvious.”

Kathy Korbholz, Administrative Director, Fit Dimension
