The Easy Way To Stop Smoking
Howdy folks! I am going to do something a bit different this week. I am going to review a book called The Easy Way To Stop Smoking by Allen Carr. The reason that this review will be different is because I will be blogging about becoming a non-smoker. Don't misunderstand me, as I type right now I am smoking. However, with Mr. Carr's book you are to continue to smoke until you finish the book. I will be finishing the book tonight, so tomorrow will be my first day as a non-smoker.
Notice that I said non-smoker and not my first day quitting or trying to quit. There are many ways people trick themselves into not quitting or set themselves up for defeat from the get go. Alot of the addiction to cigarette's are in the mind. Now I am not saying there is not a physical addiction, that would be silly since we all know that there is. But I have always believed that my addiction to cigarette's was something that I would have to fight out in my mind more than physically. This book by Allen Carr totally supports that. Mr Carr dispels a lot of the myths that are assocatied with smoking and has really opened my eyes to alot of things!
Now you may be saying to yourself how can a book help me become a non-smoker. I have tried so many times to quit and failed every time. I understand how a book can sound absurd, but honestly think about it. We as human beings know that knowledge is power. This book gives you the knowledge that you need to defeat the demon that holds you captive.
Follow my blog and see how my life changes with the help of this book. I am so excitied to be able to post here come tomorrow that I am a non-smoker! I cannot wait!
This book has helped many people quit. Don't believe me? Google the book and look for reviews or check out the reviews on Amazon. I encourage you if you are a smoker or have a loved one that is a smoker, get the book. Read it. After reading the book if you choose to continue to smoke than you have lost nothing at all. And if you do read it and quit just think of the gain!
If you are a smoker I have a challenge for you. Just for today when you lite a smoke do nothing else but smoke it. Don't talk on the phone, don't talk to others, don't read, and don't let your mind roam. Give your full attention to the cigarette. Really taste it, really feel the smoke entering and leaving your body. Pay attention to how you feel once you have smoked it. I think you may be surprised.
