I have quit with this book. 20 a day smoker, overnight none smoker - 4 months going strong
2 January 2019
I was a 20 a day smoker, 40 a night if drinking. 'Quit' about 50 times in my life.
I read this book over two evenings, chain smoked whilst reading it (about 30 cigarettes) and had no belief it would actually work.
It's a tedious read, it's patronising and repetitive (literally), but who cares when it is brilliantly effective.
It sort of re-wires your thought process on cigarettes. It has now been 4 months, and easy months at that. I haven't had cravings, I don't have twangs, I go on heavy drinking nights and don't even crave one with my beer (which used to come hand in hand). I still go to the smoking area with my friends, and I don't feel I need to distance myself.
My only advice is take it seriously, read every condescending sentence, and if it doesn't quite read right, read that extract until it does. Don't skip the repetitive sections, they are there for a reason. Stick with it and good luck with quitting.
