i don't know..i read easy way to stop smoking last year..got to the part where he says 'if you still don't feel ready to quit put this book down and come back in a couple of months'..
but i never did..
until i got pregnant, which made me stop right away.. he he...so maybe that could be your solution?
i am trying to get dp to read it now as i want him to stop before baby is born, but he says theeres far better books to spend his time reading..hmph
lots of friends have read it and quit, but i think you need the willpower, and initial inclination..nothing will work miracles!

not for me, but the course in Raynes Park did. 6 years ago and not a fag since. Most amazing thing that's ever happened to me.

4 hours and £130 very well spent.

His book REALLY worked for me. I stopped smoking on my 30th birthday after 16 years of the habit. Highly recommended.

I want to stop but im not a million percent THERE iykwim. Im doing it largely as DP asked that I would stop once we are married (we get married on Saturday!) My sister is doing it with me which is good as we are bad influence on each other. I just cant imagine not being a smoker.

charliecat Wed 13-Jul-05 22:46:44

whyquit.com go read now!

Allen Carr worked for me with quitting smoking. Can't recommend him enough. I tried EVERYTHING else and in desperation I eventually bought his book. Yay!
