What I loved about the book was the chapters, lessons and assignments were extremely short and I was able to smoke while reading the book. There are assignments that the reader must do as a smoker.
The book helps the reader get a grip back on being a conscious being with chapters such as...
Lessons of Simplicity
Fear and Courage
Our existence on Earth
The book talks about nicotine and smoking in a scientific fashion with the chapters such as...
What is Nicotine
Biological Replacement/Emotional Replacement and Constituents of Tobacco
Products and their Smoke
Why we smoke
Research and Statistics
The book also deals with replacing the chemical affects of Nicotine in the brains, such as using Nicotine as a mood enhancer or antidepressant. The bioactive nature of Nicotine cause many pleasure chemicals within the brain to keep the smoker addicted to Nicotine. The book teaches simple meditative-calming techniques to help the nonsmoker balance the effects of lack of Nicotine in the body. The book also teaches the reader to hate everything associated with smoking. It is this passion that helps the nonsmoker never to smoke again.
The book has a short and simple approach to helping one not gain weight when quitting which involves avoiding certain food groups, as well as exercising. I give this book an "A" on inspiring me enough to quit smoking as well as take back the control over my life in all areas. It is a complete self-help book about finding yourself again.
This book is written in a simple, easy-to-read style not only for adults, but also for young teens. I, especially love that the Author has had first-hand experiences struggling with wanting to quit and in his book, we travel with him on his journey to becoming a nonsmoker.
The book inspires one to achieve their highest potential in believing in yourself that you can do anything that you set your mind to do. He reminds me of Dr. Phil with his no nonsense approach.
After reading this book, I woke up. The book have me the self control to say NO. The book has a lot of assignment and it takes about 10 days to read this book. You can't read the book in a couple of days. The worse part was when the book instructed the reader to switch brands of cigarettes. The book really helped me go inward and realize that I have the power. It also helped me to HATE tobacco. I highly recommend this book for any smoker, who is still smoking and thinking about quitting.
