Over 42 million people smoke cigarettes in the US alone, despite numerous pieces of irrefutable evidence indicating that the practice is one that leads to an empty wallet—and a shorter life.
Contrary to the common belief that these individuals are unintelligent, oblivious, or both, most smokers understand how bad smoking is for one’s long-term health and well-being—they just find it difficult to quit.
You have most likely seen advertisements for medications and other chemical resources to help smokers quit. While good-hearted, these “solutions” fail to address the core problem at-hand; addiction is a mental sensation, and should be treated by resources that reflect that, as opposed to purely a chemical function.

This book is quite useful in it's method to rid you of the smoking habit. Each chapter outlines specific steps coupled with gentle encouragement to pull you along the way, and at the end of each chapter, a short review of to do's that are thorough and thoughtful. I've been an off and on smoker since I was a teenager and at one point had quit completely for a decade. Habits are ingrained and the longer we have them, the harder it is to shake them, the steps outlined in this book are excellent, the process alone lends itself to mindfulness about the habit and subtle changes that make you not want to return to the ashtray. I especially like the replacement tips, and the examination of why you smoke, most of us want to quit and we'll try and try but we never truly address why we started. This book is a fast read but it's one that you should keep around and reread when you struggle, as we all do when we try to change our behavior. The author suggests replacements that recreate the feeling of smoking or help to relieve the reasons for smoking and they are thoughtful and beneficial to the reader. I read self help books semi-frequently, as I like to think I'm self aware, in some things anyways. I've made the mistake of purchasing books before that I could tell quickly were regurgitated information and/or were poorly put together. I would read other books by this author because I can tell they have taken the time to know what they're talking about and they truly want to help, the suggestions, tips and writing style all read the same way. It's like the gentle push from a loved one, offering helpful advice, suggestions to change certain habits and praise. Self help books can often come off as preachy, and sadly, even condescending sometimes...I read none of that in this book. I would not be surprised to learn if the author has at least a passing interest in psychology. It's well written, thorough in its advice to retrain us in our habits so that we can be successful. I see no reason a person can't quit smoking if they follow the advice in this book, and are truly ready to stop smoking. Given the cost of cigarettes and depending on the size of the habit of the individual reader, the treats at the end of the first week that are suggested seem steep until you do the math for the money you've saved. I have a lot of bad habits. I'm off to search this author and find out what else they can stair-step me into quitting.
This book is not for everyone, I am going to say that from the start. It takes work and changing your mind to quit a habit. Habits are habits because we are used to doing them. Smoking is a double edged sword because nicotine is addictive. This book offers seven days worth of suggestions of what to do instead of having a cigarette. It suggests using patches if you need them, or nicotine gum while quitting. This is a personal choice. I am not a smoker, but I come from a family of long term smokers. I never cared what they did until I moved in with an Aunt. I began to hate the smell, the constant cough that the second hand smoke gave me. I also watched my mom die at the age of 66 years old as the result of her smoking. This gave me the courage to ask my Aunt to change, and gave her the motivation to make a difference in her life. With this book in hand, I am helping my Aunt find the power to change her habit so that she doesn't die at a young age as her sister, my mother, did. This book is full of inspiration and different parts of your life to tweak so that things that used to trigger the need for a smoke break have their impact lessened. Some of these triggers are being replaced entirely. This book is not a miracle working book, you have to want to quit and need motivation inside yourself. Without it, you will not find your inner courage. It is a hard road, but my Aunt is going to make it this time.
