I stopped smoking...but because I wanted to,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Allen Carr's Easy Way to Stop Smoking: Be a Happy Non-smoker for the Rest of Your Life (Paperback)My boyfriend and I decided we would both stop smoking so I bought this book to help me. He quit whilst I was still reading it, and I decided to finish before I quit too. However, my 'revalation' moment came not from finishing the book, I didn't, but just because I knew it was the right time. At first I found Allen a bit preachy and part of me wanted to carry on smoking just to spite him! I found him a bit full of himself and didn't like how he came across much. Parts of the book and his points stay in my head though and I haven't smoke since I stopped. Whilst I've not really felt tempted since I quit, I sometimes look at my friends smoking and think, yes, it was nice to have a cigarette after a meal. But I know I've quit for good and enjoying not smoking. Would I have still done it without the book? I think so, but I would have found it very hard, whereas I actually found it very easy. This book isn't a miracle, you can't guarantee it will just make you quit, but if you want to stop smoking, this is like an almighty kick up the arse to help you.
