Editorial Reviews

Review

"Brilliant...with an incredibly high success rate" Daily Mail "Gillian is an author who always makes sense" Nigella Lawson "Forget ridiculous aversion and repression techniques and look your addiction straight in the eye with her simple, one-day-at-a-time technique" The Guardian "It teaches you, not tricks and gimmicks, but such effective common sense and home truths that I was able to bring an entirely new attitude to my efforts to give up. I found, as a result, that my worst stop-smoking experiences - the tetchiness, the tearfulness, the constant teetering on the brink of failure and the absurd wish to die - didn't happen at all this time" Cosmopolitan "What I found most liberating about this technique was that I no longer needed to run or hide from wanting a cigarette. Not only could I go anywhere, do anything, be with anyone whether they smoked or not, but I also didn't need to try to deny the desire to smoke by eating and drinking more...It is, quite simply and literally, a technique for life" Sunday Times magazine

From the Inside Flap

It is easy to stop smoking -- the hard part is staying stopped -- but the great news is that 75% of smokers who have taken Gillian Riley?s highly successful Full Stop course are still not smoking a year later. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

The book recommends that you listen/read it before you actually quit, and I think this is good advice.

In the end, a couple of cessation methods and what I learned in this book that helped me get to where I am.

Tried a few other methods with limited success but this book really took the magic out of stopping smoking.

Format: Audible Audio Edition
I listened to the audio version of this book after I had stopped smoking. The book recommends that you listen/read it before you actually quit, and I think this is good advice. I had smoked for approximately 20 years and, while never a heavy smoker (5 per day), I was heavily addicted, nonetheless. This book helped me understand why I stopped with ease when I was pregnant, but went right back to it each time and have never been able to just stop.

The fundamental difference this book takes is that, unlike other "quick fix" methods that aim to eliminate your desire to smoke, the author forces you to acknowledge that you desire to smoke. This desire will lessen with time -- but can strike at anytime; therefore, you must develope some techniques for dealing with that desire. She even encourages you to face your desire and temptation head on. If you smoke while commutting or when having drinks with friends -- don't avoid these activities at first -- you are only trying to avoid the desire and then you become afraid of the desire itself. The desire is normal for anyone who has smoked. It's not to be feared, because you alone have the choice of whether to stop smoking or become a smoker again -- which, the author reminds you is a drug addiction that kills or disables at least 50 percent of the people who do it.

I have only been stopped for a couple of weeks, but feel very empowered by my choice to stop smoking. I used to say that I smoked because I liked it, and to a degree that is true, but I was also a slave to it and was dishonest with my children when I would be hiding out back while smoking. It feels good to not be a slave to cigarettes or to be lying to my family about it-- even though those things never bothered me before. I feel free and empowered. I still want a cigarette, btu I'm not afraid I won't be able to cope with that feeling.

a must to read if you are committed in quitting smoking.
it gives the full picture of how smoking works, how it gets you and how it keeps you hooked. and after having given the framework, it provides the lightest method to quit you could ever dream of. and with no side-effects.
i did smoke for 15 years and was a real tobacco addicted (30 heavy ones a day), and i've been a happy ex-smokers for almost 5 years now. i wish mr or mrs riley could get my gratitude!

Tried a few other methods with limited success but this book really took the magic out of stopping smoking. Read it on my own pace, no pressure and I have not been smoking for a while now with minimal cravings or draw backs. Altogether, very great experience!

I used this book in 1992 when it was first released and have been a non-smoker since then. I had tried to quit for years and was unsuccessful until I found this book. If you read it and follow the instructions you have a real chance of stopping. This book is a miracle. I have given it to several people and most of them were able to
stop as well.
