Here is the summary of a psychological research study into subliminal messaging and its influence to help stop smoking. The study was conducted by Palmatier and Bornstein:

Thirty-four people in a three week group therapy session to help smoking cesssation took part in the study. The therapy sessions were carried out as normal, however, after the therapy half of the group were exposed to subliminal messages designed to aid in quitting smoking, while the other group were not exposed to any messages at all.

The findings one month after the therapy sessions reported a significantly lower relapse rate of the people in the group who received the subliminal messages, this group was significantly less likely to start smoking again.

Another follow up study was undertaken by Palmatier and Bornstein, in which they found very similar results, here is their conclusion: “subliminal messaging noticeably improved the progress of subjects attempting to quit smoking”, this is in comparison to their control groups who were not exposed to any subliminal messages.
