Format: Paperback
Thanks to the Tao of Quitting Smoking by Joseph Weaver, my ten year, 1 pack a day addiction is over. I am not a spiritual person, so I was skeptical of buying a book which labels itself as the spiritual approach to quitting smoking. However, after reading this book, I realized the book is about much more. The secret of this book is to help the reader rid their misconceptions associated with Nicotine, Addiction, Tobacco and Second-hand Smoke. The book goes deeply into the root of a person's soul to discover WHY they allow themselves to smoke. The Tao of quitting smoking is a reader's own self analysis of actions, thoughts, habits and transformation.

What I loved about the book was the chapters, lessons and assignments were extremely short and I was able to smoke while reading the book. There are assignments that the reader must do as a smoker.

The book helps the reader get a grip back on being a conscious being with chapters such as...

Lessons of Simplicity

Non-Judgment

Fear and Courage

Free Will

Our existence on Earth

The book talks about nicotine and smoking in a scientific fashion with the chapters such as...

What is Nicotine

Addiction

Biological Replacement/Emotional Replacement and Constituents of Tobacco

Products and their Smoke

Why we smoke

Research and Statistics

The book also deals with replacing the chemical affects of Nicotine in the brains, such as using Nicotine as a mood enhancer or antidepressant. The bioactive nature of Nicotine cause many pleasure chemicals within the brain to keep the smoker addicted to Nicotine.

Format: Paperback
I read this book after trying to quit smoking several times. I have tried hypnosis, other quit smoking books, the patch, the pill and even seminars. I have finished reading the book one week ago. I can truly say that I will never smoke again. Why? Especially because it has been only a week. Well, I just know I will NEVER go back to smoking. The book helped me go inward and build the strenght I needed, so I can say. Smoking is a dead subject for me.
After reading this book, I woke up. The book have me the self control to say NO. The book has a lot of assignment and it takes about 10 days to read this book. You can't read the book in a couple of days. The worse part was when the book instructed the reader to switch brands of cigarettes. The book really helped me go inward and realize that I have the power. It also helped me to HATE tobacco. I highly recommend this book for any smoker, who is still smoking and thinking about quitting.

Format: Paperback
After reading the Tao of Quitting Smoking, I highly recommend this book, not only to those addicted to nicotine, but to anyone with an addiction. The most important thing about quitting an addiction/habit is preparing yourself not only physically but also mentally and spiritually. This book is excellent because it touches upon each facet necessary to end an addiction. There are assignments which one can do while smoking as well as a step-by-step process to achieving a smoke-free life.

This book is written in a simple, easy-to-read style not only for adults, but also for young teens. I, especially love that the Author has had first-hand experiences struggling with wanting to quit and in his book, we travel with him on his journey to becoming a nonsmoker.

The book inspires one to achieve their highest potential in believing in yourself that you can do anything that you set your mind to do. He reminds me of Dr. Phil with his no nonsense approach.

This book might speak to you but it didn't speak to me. I did get a few good ideas but overall I didn't like the approach. Too much on the author's experience and not enough on mine.
