The 55-year-old Simon Cowell wanted to stop smoking, but his attempt failed and he started to smoke again. More than one year ago he said he wants to quit because his girlfriend Lauren Silverman is pregnant. Now his baby Eric is 14 month old and Simon is still smoking. Yeah, this is an addiction and it is not so easy to get rid of it.
The ‘X Factor’ superstar confessed that he underwent hypnotherapy in his attempt to kick the habit, but it did not help him and he smoked cigarettes right after leaving the session. He told:
”I tried once to give up smoking, and the first thing I did when I walked out of the hypnotist’s was light up a cigarette. I actually wanted one more.”
During the reality TV show ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ Simon was hypnotized by a dog and he told in an interview to The Sun newspaper he experienced a strange feeling.
”That was a very strange sensation. Look, I don’t know whether it was the trainer or whether it was the dog, but it was the weirdest feeling. It’s all on tape.
”I do start yawning and feeling very light-headed. My last memory was the dog staring at me – and I love dogs – with this really weird look. Then the next thing, the girl is saying: ‘Five, four three, two, one, wake up.”’
