Lastly, the book cites two main reasons why you will fail: the influence of other smokers, and having a bad day. Having been around for 20 some years and being able to refine it with twenty years of feedback, I feel like this is one of the better books out there on non-smoking.
Also helpful: The Sixty-Second Motivator -short, to the point, and practical.
First off, it is not a scare tactic book. In fact it addresses why scare tactics only make people smoke more. It's more about talking about the reasons why people THINK they smoke, why those reasons are illusions, the reasons people REALLY smoke, and how those things are easily overcome. The book terms it a sort of de-brainwashing.
By half-way through the book I never wanted another cigarette again, but it tells you to keep on smoking until you finish the book. There was a point in the book where it specifically said to light up, so I did. Finished the little experiment and didn't even want to smoke the whole thing. I ate dinner directly after finishing the book, realized that I had the "need" for a cigarette as usual after dinner, and then I realized I didn't NEED anything at all but to do the dishes.
All I can say is that I feel free after just one day. The book works, the ideas are simple and easy. You cannot spend a better $15 for your health.
There are some things that I really love about this book. Firstly, there is no pressure. You can smoke all the way through it (in fact, you are asked to). The last sentence doesn't pressure you to put out the cigarette because you are now "cured"; it simply ends with a checklist, a summary of the ideas contained in the book. What really makes this approach unique is that you actually quit cigarettes *while you are still smoking them*.
The author seperates your nicotine addiction from the act of smoking a cigarette. With those elements seperated, you shift your perceptions of smoking (with step-by-step assistance), blowing away those "excuses" that allowed you to justify the negative effects of smoking, and empowering your decision to quit for good. And the author definitely knows his topic. He goes through every excuse you give yourself for continuing to smoke (concentration/boredom/stress/relaxation) and busts them with logic.
He then gives you back your perceptions on smoking that you had before you were hooked. He takes you back to your first cigarette, and walks you through it as you begin to notice all of the things you chose not to confront. He arms you with knowledge so that when you do quit, you won't want to go back.Read more ›
Read my long, rambling review if you like, but I'd rather you'd spend as much time reading as many DIFFERENT reviews here as possible, then...BELIEVE IT.
Trust me, I know that as a smoker, it seems absolutely unbelievable. I was exactly the same way. Just do it, give it a shot. 359 out of 406 said FIVE STARS. That's no accident. You'll see some patterns in these reviews...believe what you're reading. Do it now.
Ten bucks for this book? That's two packs of smokes! So worth it. So easy. Don't waste another day. Don't even wait for it from Amazon...drive to the store and get it NOW. You can read it in two or three days...you'll be free.
UPDATE: September 22, 2006--it's now been three months since I quit, I haven't stumbled once, and the thought of smoking doesn't even enter my mind. I can happily and easily be around smokers without wanting a cigarette. For example: a friend of mine forgot I'd quit and asked me to HOLD HER BURNING CIGARETTE while she went inside the house...I did so with no desire to puff on it...no kidding...I never would have believed it if I hadn't experienced it myself.
A couple of reviews above contend that you will still have cravings. I'm of the opinion that those people weren't mentally in the right place when they read this book. Here's how I explain it: you can't crave or miss something that you truly don't want, right? (Case in point: non-smokers don't crave cigarettes.Read more ›
