I've never posted here before because it didn't immediately hit me that this particular link has something to do with me! I'm in my late 20's, and have been smoking since I was 14 (perfect time to start, wouldn't you say??
), tried to quit 3 times to no avail.
Then an ex-smoker friend of mine suggested a book that might help me. A BOOK. Oh, please, I thought. No book could ever succesfully shield me from my nic cravings!(a pack-packandahalf/day)No way. I was a hardcore, confirmed smoker- pathetically even smoked while pregnant
One day I finally picked up the book and read it after having it in my posession for some time (I think I was bored that day). It took me about 1 month to finish. You can finish it in a day if you want to!
See, the book operates on the basic principles of hypnotherapy. It actually speaks to your subconscious. Sounds hoakey, I know, believe me but I've been a non-smoker since THE BOOK told me to put out my last cig. (You smoke the whole time reading it- he actually advises AGAINST cutting down)
That night I went out for drinks with friends. NO problem! I remember thinking that I SHOULD be wanting one...but I'm not! And I haven't in 6 months!
The name of the book is "Allen Carr's Easy Way To Stop Smoking". I bought the book for a ton of my friends and family that Christmas. So far a friend of mine has quit (after 11 yrs), my sister (after 20 yrs) and the one that makes me so happy I could pee
--- my MOM has quit after just over 35yrs!!!!!!The others haven't read it yet. They will!
Please give the book a chance. It's a tad repetitive, but know that 's the method behind the madness. For some reason a lot of people I know from Europe are familiar with this method and it's successes. Yet not many Westerners do. Go figure. Something to do with big buisness, I'm sure.
If this solution has already been posted, please forgive me. Just take this as an incredible success story. I was suckin' on those things like there was no tomorrow(note the irony
) And I'm a singer! UGH!
Much much love and strength!
