I never really tried to give up, because I didnt feel like I was addicted. Then I turned 20 and I realised i have a serious cough, depression, upset stomach, unpleasant smell and very sensitive teeth, all those nasty things that smokers have.
I didn't try any gums or patches, I knew there was a book which my dad read and gave up smoking in two weeks after 25 years of smoking. So I found the book. I had a lot going on at that moment, i didn't have time to read. But I really didn't want to put off reading, so I ordered this comic book. It took me about 2-3 hours to read it (I am not a native English speaker). I stopped smoking two days before I read the book, so it was a bit hard to read it, as they ask you to smoke your last cigarette while you're reading. I didn't even do that. And I must admit it never touched tobacco again.
The book itself is a great fun! Full of funny comic pictures, and you feel really engaged with it, cause they describe so much about you as a smoker, it feels they read you through.
If you smoke joints, it is fine. You still can give up smoking tobacco and enjoy weed. The only thing is don't mix weed with tobacco. They sell great herbal mixes for this purpose. So you'll never ever have to breathe nicotine in again.
The most amazing book I have ever read. Changes my life. I read this back in 2001 and am still a non smoker. I don't think I would still be around now if it wasn't for this book. I feel fantastic to be free of an addiction that is basically all in the mind. Read it.... you can smoke all the way through to the last page..... you have nothing to loose. My tip would be take it easy and read it over a couple of months so the messages really get in (I read every page twice, I was so desperate for it to work). I also felt so much more confident in myself once I wasn't ruled by cigerettes.
This helped my friend quit smoking. They said they found his approach useful. I can't comment past that, however it made a great gift to inspire my friend to give up. They used to own the non-illustrated paper version so the illustrated Kindle version was great.
Gave up smoking using Allen Carr's easy way to give up smoking permenantly. However recently have been having the odd cigarette, this book provides a handy reminder a to why you gave up in the first place. Subsequently I have been off the cigarettes for around two weeks and its going well. I have a kindle fire and have the app in my phone so the book is easily accessible if I get tempted. Allen Carr has literally changed my life, reading health warnings does nothing when reading sensible observations from someone who has been a heavy smoker really hits home.
this book is so easy to read. it's funny it's light hearted. we all know smoking is bad for our health, we all know it can kill us, but yet we still do it. this book shows us our thinking, why we think the way we do and how we can change it. :)
