About the Author

The fundamental difference this book takes is that, unlike other "quick fix" methods that aim to eliminate your desire to smoke, the author forces you to acknowledge that you desire to smoke. This desire will lessen with time -- but can strike at anytime; therefore, you must develope some techniques for dealing with that desire. She even encourages you to face your desire and temptation head on. If you smoke while commutting or when having drinks with friends -- don't avoid these activities at first -- you are only trying to avoid the desire and then you become afraid of the desire itself. The desire is normal for anyone who has smoked. It's not to be feared, because you alone have the choice of whether to stop smoking or become a smoker again -- which, the author reminds you is a drug addiction that kills or disables at least 50 percent of the people who do it.
I have only been stopped for a couple of weeks, but feel very empowered by my choice to stop smoking. I used to say that I smoked because I liked it, and to a degree that is true, but I was also a slave to it and was dishonest with my children when I would be hiding out back while smoking. It feels good to not be a slave to cigarettes or to be lying to my family about it-- even though those things never bothered me before. I feel free and empowered.Read more ›
it gives the full picture of how smoking works, how it gets you and how it keeps you hooked. and after having given the framework, it provides the lightest method to quit you could ever dream of. and with no side-effects.
i did smoke for 15 years and was a real tobacco addicted (30 heavy ones a day), and i've been a happy ex-smokers for almost 5 years now. i wish mr or mrs riley could get my gratitude!
stop as well.

I was not impressed by this book.
Most if not all of the five star reviews are fake. Look for yourself.
