Sometimes I fantasize about being hypnotized to get out of my bad habits. I like the idea that my mind would be trained to stop doing the things I shouldn't do, and start doing the things I should do, without even trying. I've given up on willpower and self-control, especially where eating is concerned.
I know people who have used hypnosis to lose weight. The beauty of the therapy is that people are not trained to have the willpower to put the chocolate chip cookie down; they're trained not to want the cookie in the first place.
