The most important part of quitting is to make the decision to quit, to end one's addiction to nicotine. In order to do that you have to find a genuinely personal motivating reason for quitting. Once you do that it IS easy to quit.
Once the hits to my health built up to a certain level, I reluctantly decided I should give up smoking. I didn't want to. I thought I loved it. This book helped me to change my mind about smoking. I started to see it for what it is and was almost magically able to separate in my mind the pleasure of smoking from the addiction of nicotine. I don't think I could have quit (not only quit, but quit actually HAPPILY) without having read this book. I used nicotine patches and e-cigarettes to help separate out nicotine from the smoking habit, and it worked. I didn't have to become some annoying anti-smoking ex-smoker. I simply understood my own body better.
To this day, I still enjoy the smell of people smoking, but I will never have an interest in smoking cigarettes again. I was such a slave, whereas now I am free. I still use an e-cigarette (I gradually reduced my nicotine intake to zero) for petty amusement. Throughout my smoking career, I had acquired pretty poor fitness levels and a nagging periodontal problem. My perio is almost healed and I am training for an Ironman. I cannot recommend this book enough.
We decided to try the Allen Carr audiobook. We took time out every night to pop one disk into the living room sound system and just sat back and listened. We deliberately waited a few days before we listened to the last CD. Then, when we both felt ready to let go, we put in the last CD, listened to it, threw out everything in the house related to smoking and just stopped. No substitutes at all.
That was over a year ago. Somehow, it seems like I've never smoked. It just melted right out of my psyche. Even the first three days were easy. I don't know what it is with Allen Carr's system that makes it work so well, but it is more magic than science. It is as though we never smoked. I can now put on expensive perfume and know that the people around me are smelling me and not the acrid stale smoke smell that smokers give off. They don't even know it, but it almost a visible miasma like the dirt surrounding Pigpen in the Peanuts cartoon. I'm so glad that is no longer me.
All I can say is THANK YOU ALLEN CARR, WHEREVER YOU ARE.
This book truly gives you a different way to look at the reasons why we smoke, and why we may be afraid to quit. I would highly recommend this one for anyone who smokes, who is thinking about quitting, who has quit and needs a bit more support, or just for a good read. It's that good! Please comment if you quit after reading this book. I continue to try, because as they say, if you don't at least try, you will never quit
