After a person has been hypnotized they can be given 'post hypnotic suggestion'. This places in their mind the thought that they must continue doing something despite no longer being in a state of false lethargy (also induced by illusions of hypnosis). This suggestion may be ignored as the 'want' that has been induced is not real and only an illusion.
Post hypnotic suggestion is used on some cigarette users in the hope that they will be tricked into thinking they want to quit smoking. It does not work as a general rule unfortunately.
