To all of you who are quitting. Please send all your unused cigarettes to me ASAP.

They are Hella expensive in Chicago.

Thanks in advance.

I haven't read it but I've heard a lot about Carr's method. It is very similar to the conclusions I came to on my own that helped me to quit smoking. It seems like a great book....I recommend it!

E-cigs are controversial right now, but I don't see how they could be worse than cigarettes. I have several friends who have switched to e-cigs and absolutely love them.

The Joye 510 is the best.

the book is awesome. worked for me.. after a pack a day for 10 years. no probs.

just read the book with an open mind. the best part is that he says to just keep smoking like normal while you read it.

No you don't, you just think you do because you're addicted, and organically grown tobacco will give you cancer just the same.
As you were.

I've battled with smoking for years. tried nrt and all sorts. I read "easyway" about 9 months ago and stopped completely for about 6 months with no problems whatsoever. Gradually over the last 3 months i've been having smokes here and there and i'm now a full blown secret smoker.

I bought the other book (the only way to stop smoking) but i've found it much harder to read. Its about 3 times the size of easyway and it has tiny print that really annoys me. I'm in the middle of reading easyway again and i'm going to stop smoking for good.

Smoking is shite!

1) Quit and fail
2) Quit again and remember what a bitch it is to quit
3) Realize you don't want to do that ever again
4) That is your motivation to never smoke again

that is exactly how I did it too! :D
