The sexy singer, 22, is attempting to regain her former clean-cut image which has was ruined by racy photo shoots, tabloid features on her smoking and drinking exploits, flings with celebrity bad boys Colin Farrell and Fred Durst and her recent 55-hour marriage to childhood pal Jason Alexander.

According to British magazine STAR, Spears has enrolled a top hypnotherapist to help her overcome her nicotine addiction.
