    I quit for New Year's Day.

    I totally recommend this book for anyone, who has had difficulty with quitting smoking. I was a two pack a day smoker, who tried the patch and other books, but I seem to always go back to smoking. I'm a physican in the Emergency Department and my life is full of stress, as well as having three children at home. My wife has hates the smokes and my smoking has caused so much added stress in my life. So, I have been ready to quit for years, but I couldn't. The Tao of Quitting Smoking helps the reader go inward to capture back his self. I have given the book to my staff in eht E.R. Actually, most of the doctors and nurses smoke in the E.R where I work. I met the author at a book signing in NY and bought his book. I found the book very interesting, and extremely self motivating. Only one wish is that the author, Joseph Weaver would have spent more time on diet after quitting. I used most of his suggestion but needed more. I also had a problem with this book because, in order to complete this book, one has to be smoking. However, there were much much more that I loved about the book. What I loved about the book was that it referred smokers to discuss plans with their doctors for those, who have difficulty in the past with quitting. The book is complete and has help me finally end my addiction. Great Job, Joe. You should think about doing seminars!
