"Before you try to quit -- before you even decide if quitting is for you -- invest some time in 'Quit & Stay Quit'."
By page 44, I knew this was the not the book I needed. On page 7, there is a note:
"In a journal, (page 21) add a reason yourself -- one of the reasons you want to keep smoking."
There was no mention to begin a journal in the introductory pages, but no big deal. However, Page 21 gives no information whatsoever about a journal. It's a totally different chapter entitled "Smoking Is An Addiction."
Up to page 44, there were a couple sentences that stated "Now that you have quit (unless you are still smoking), ...", but the statement on page 44 ended my reading:
"Right now, you are a smoker who is not smoking. (If you are smoking while reading this, you must be highly [italicized] addicted.)"
HUH? What happened to: "Before you try to quit -- before you even decide if quitting is for you ..." There are still 230 pages to read!!
The author dedicates the book to a fellow doc that died from smoking, but it's clear the author never smoked in his life. I know I'm only speaking from review of the first 44 pages, but he is simply reusing the same tips & tricks: write down why you want to smoke, write down why you want to quit, record each cigarette of the day, etc.
Nothing new here, in addition to confusing and a little deceptive. Save your money.
It's simple, so easy, you take your time, your own pace, learn as you read, change your mind and stop when you're ready.
I actually quit 2 weeks before my scheduled cut-off date. I just didn't want to smoke anymore. Never went back, never wanted to and there's been plenty of stress since then. But I just dealt with it.
You can do it, if I could. Read a Book!
