From the Publisher
The Smoke-Free Smoke Break is a groundbreaking approach to smoking cessation that helps readers learn to replace smoking with mindfulness, craving control, and cognitive restructuring techniques that help readers reduce tobacco use gradually, at their own pace. Because the ritual and habit of smoking can be as addictive as nicotine itself, this book allows readers to continue taking "smoke-free smoke breaks" using tobacco-free relaxation methods.

Samov and Samov take a different pathway here; instead of demonizing the behavior they seek to help the smoker understand the behavior and the actual benefits of smoking that keep them going back for another cigarette. The first portion of the book discusses the actual physical effects of smoking and helps the reader to understand that there is more to smoking than just the selfish desire to smoke. I'd recommend this first chapter to not only smokers wanting to cut back, but also to their significant others who want to better understand the urge to smoke and how smoking truly is a coping tool.
The second section of the book offers a 30 day prep plan--smoking meditations and koans that lead to more mindful smoking. The goal here is to disrupt the patterns we have with smoking and to make it a deliberate act and choice. The koans or thought exercises get the reader to reflect on larger questions like "what is a nonsmoking" and requires that they look beyond habitual actions.Read more ›

Mindfulness, passive meditation, is a great way not just for quitting smoking but for other areas in life. The exercises on the book are also wonderful! Thanks for this remarkable book!
