Mostly allot of BS ing...I kept waiting for him to get to something which really he didn't for me.

I pretty much am aware of the hazards already.

He drills and drills on the "poison" we pay to get that will kill us.

The last very few pages he gets to instructions and there are few and we already know them anyway....At least I knew them.

God I want to and need to quit. After $1,000 of hypnosis and who knows how much on drugs...CHANTIX!!!...Stay away from that stuff, I had to get on tranquilizers to even finish the run of that stuff. I was liked even less to to say the least taking that poop.

Best to us all

It's all in the head, between the ears. No drug, person, book or voodoo magic can make you do anything you do not convince yourself to do. I read the book, and yes it is repetitive for a reason, to take the fear out of quitting. It takes 21 days to build a habit of doing something. Therefore, it takes, you guessed it, 21 days to build a habit of doing the opposite. Believe me and others, YOU WILL NOT DIE, HAVE A NERVOUS BREAKDOWN, HALLUCINATE, ACQUIRER ANY STRANG DISORDERS BY QUITTING SMOKING! You just might feel better, smell better, have more friends, save money and live a little longer if you do quit.

All obvious to me prior to this book and your post. However maybe not to all.

Thanks

Well my friend, you are just not mentally ready to quit. And that is okay, hopefully some day you will be.

Get Menatlly ready is what I've been trying to do. Hypnosis....Books....Loving Wife on my butt....Loving Daughter on my butt....Son almost old enough to have finished programming to be on my but....My Doctor

I am now in my second run of plueracy...On anti-biotics for second time since January.

My Cousin had his Larynx removed this year...He is 60 yrs old and was light smoker for 20 years...His Dad (My Uncle) died of lung cancer in 1971.

Friend died 3 yrs ago from lung cancer.

Could go on....

Seems I have some mental input along the way but the dang poison drags me back down to it's level repeatedly.

This ordeal reminds me of all the expensive so-called "remedies" on the market that are out there to "just take ur hard earned cash". Quick fixes!! U know!!! Some very obese people cannot help the way they look but "some can". The pill, the books, mom amd pop remedies from 200 yrs. ago, all are there to "take ur money". Sound like that movie "CASINO". All of their games are there to "rip" u off. I think the best way to describe it, about being a little too fat, is this.."In order to put it on ur A**, U gotta put in ur mouth!". No brainer...right??? Will Power..Mind over matter?? All Free!!
Smoking? Same thing..just cut ur supply off!! In the Mid 90's, the State of Texas came down w/ a policy in our Prison system, that NO smoking will take place. And it did!! Staff and inmates were not allowed to smoke in the Units. After all the Buglar and "ready rolls" were used up, NO MORE...and that was it...Case Closed. The staff working at these Units statewide were ready for a full blown RIOT because of the "no smoking policy". No...their were not any pills, patches, books, or gum to be passed out to help overcome this nasty habit. CUT OFF BUBBA!!!! Cold Turkey..forced to Quit!! Can U imagine the tension? U know what, not a single disturbance Statewide because of the ban.
So folks, get rid of all smoking materials. Ash trays, lighters, stinking clothes U got in the closets, shampoo ur carpets, repaint ur ceiling, change air filters, same w/ ur car. Remember....U have to stick it in ur mouth first!! Bite the Bullet..It's all IN UR HEAD...U will not die cause U "flat quit". Don't let people smoke in ur house anymore, in ur car, and stay away from people (in their face) when they smoke. I've been there! Cold Turkey, drinking too! 30 yrs ago this yr.

Well I didnt get "ripped off" by using the book. I checked it out from the library, and If I did buy it it was pretty cgeap if I remeber correctly...again not a rip off if it WORKS. This book has a very high success record so again not a rip off.

The funniest part about your post is that you are saying some of the same things Allen Carr says in his book...he just used a little more tact.

Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and all is well!

Sounds to me like you just really don't want to be here, alive that is, and you know all the reasons to quit and why you can't quit already figured out.

You might need to get some professional help to find out why you're self-destructive.

Thank you Kenny...Some unique words you have there and most likely on target. I'm thinking now....

I plan to try this method myself new Years eve- any 2-coolers got a book to loan out; will send it back as soon as I finish reading it. I hope it works. My wife tried Chantix and she quit for a bout 2 weeks. She claims the medicine made her ancy and is also looking for an alternate way. I was going to to get the Chantix myself until she told me about her experience. She said it also made her feel horrible all the time. We were both discussing this method the other day and decided maybe we would do it as our new years resolution together.

Sorry, the book is not to be loaned out, thats just part of the program. Besides, if you borrow the book you have not made the conscious decision to invest in your own benefit. Its just a little psychological and monetary investment if you go out and buy your very own book.

Personally, I would run from anything that alters the mind chemically, its not a chemical problem you have.

AMEN!!!
You are soooooo right. Even though I am taking Chantix (no adverse affects for me yet), I do believe that if I were not ready and really really wanted to quit. There is nothing in the world that can make you quit if you are not ready to do it!!

Celebrating 2 smoke free years today. Looking back, it really was a lot easier this time. Since quitting I've joined a workout facility and my 1 mile time is 6:04. Not too shabby for being an ex smoker and 43 yrs old.
