Thanks to you guys, I haven’t smoked a single cigarette since 5th November 2001.

The thought of smoking never enters my head and I could no more associate smoking a fag with the relief of stress than eating cat food!

Thanks for 14 years of freedom from that wretched prison.

I read Easy Way in December of 2013. Had decided I needed to stop smoking before my 40th birthday. I finished the book a couple weeks before my birthday. It has been over 1 and 1/2 years since I had my last cigarette.

A pack a day for 25 years. 16 or more attempts at quitting during that time, all of which were unsuccessful. I read Easyway and with some real deep fortitude along with it, I have given up without flinching and its been over a year and a half without evening going near cigarettes. Threw out a full carton as soon as I decided its over. Alan’s approach was less “rah rah, you can do it” and more “let’s cut the crap, I know and you know its not hard and you’re lying to yourself”. That was refreshing.

I was a 2 pack a day smoker for 25 years and tried to quit with willpower many many times and was miserable and never lasted more than 2 or 3 days tops. My wife’s acupuncturist recommended EasyWay and I got it on Kindle and read it and stubbed out my last butt 3 weeks ago. I am as amazed as anyone that I’ve not had a smoke in 3 weeks, am not miserable and finally have broken my cigarette addiction. If I could have back all the money I’ve spent on cigarettes I would donate it to Allen Carr’s EasyWay to help educate other smokers…I cannot thank you enough!!!

Bonjour,

merci Allan Carr, après 23 ans de bons et loyaux services au tabagismes (1 à 2 paquets par jour) et après 2 lectures attentives et en appliquant la pleine conscience pour dire au revoir aux cigarettes stratégiques, je suis fière de dire que cela fait un peu plus de 3 ans que j’ai arrêté de fumer et que je n’ai pas retouché une cigarette.

Après la 1ère semaine un peu difficile, ou je devais rester tout le temps en action pour éviter de “craquer” tout c’est passé plus sereinement.

MERCI, MERCI et MERCI

J’ai noté dans le livre le jour et l’année de ma dernière cigarette avec mon prénom et j’ai fait circuler le livre à une amie pour qu’elle en fasse de même… j’espère qu’un jour il n’y aura pas assez de page pour s’inscrire dessus.

MERCI, MERCI et MERCI

- THANK YOUTHANK YOUTHANK YOU
For helping me feel alive again!
Quit Date: JUNE 27, 2015
Thank you for making me realize I REALLY, TRULY DON’T WANT TO SMOKE!

My (smoking) neighbor, sister, Mom, etc. are in utter disbelief, that I, always outside on the phone, reading or on my laptop while chain-smoking, am no longer smoking. Furthermore, I am shockingly happy, poised, and absolutely confident that I will never take another puff!

Living in the DC area, I see the power of lobbying groups. Big tobacco lobbyist (which of course include those advocating NRT) are as close as you can get to the Capitol. Big tobacco, pharmaceutical companies, and governments who earn SO MUCH $ from taxing cigs DON’T WANT YOU TO BE SUCCESSFUL GETTING OFF OF NICOTINE, so they are the first to tell you that study after study shows NRT is better then cold turkey. NO IT IS NOT!!!
ASK THE MILLIONS OF HAPPY ALLEN CARR Ex-Smokers – STUDIES!

What is so mind-boggling is realizing the extent to which one has allowed oneself to get brainwashed. ESPECIALLY that, “IT IS SO DIFFICULT TO QUIT!” Quoted by smokers and ex-smokers using the “Conflict of Will” method as well as non-smokers who have observed the effects of this method. Guess what? It’s not difficult at all!

Imagine that within a 10yr +/- age of you, there are only two types of people in the world: Smokers & Ex-Smokers. Which group do you prefer to be in? Think about it. Imagine someone you know, a dear “friend” quit…very very happily before you. Don’t you want to be first? Of course you do! Why? Because you’re still alive and life involves healthy competition! That why.

So STOP SMOKINGSTART LIVING – Keep reading Allen Carr’s books for reinforcement if needed or the wonderful video clips of the webcast.
That’s all that’s needed to click you brain back in place –
like a chain on a bicycle.

To all who at the Allen Carr International…from the bottom of heart…
THANK YOU for helping me get out!!!
————————————————————————————————————————
As you may soon notice, I am not a song writer by profession but started writing a song about stopping smoking that goes something like this:

I had a one-two-three epiphany
That this here weed is killin me.

Getting this stuff I must go out of my way to pay
Did you know it even attaches to,
And changes your DNA?

That means cigs make you something you’re not supposed to be.
Cause you’re supposed to be you and I’m supposed to be me.
That’s just the way God intended things to be.

Now I strongly suggest you follow God’s rules
Cause if you don’t, I’ve heard he can be cruel.
But you see we’ve already noticed, very first hand.
That God never guides those who don’t follow his commands!
DO NOT DESTROY THYSELF – He commands
And if you do you might just fall into the Devil’s hands.

I read the book in 2 days and was getting really excited to get to the end and smoke my last cigarette, which I just did.
Your book was a revelation. I tried the method based on willpower many times, and it didn’t work of course, or not for long…
You made me see it all very differently, now I’m confident to say I’m a non-smoker for good, yipee!
Thank you so much…

My husband bought the kindle book about controlling alcohol intake the easyway, (I think it’s called.) He told me about it and I read it at the same time on our computer. We had both been heavy drinkers since being teenagers and are now in our sixties. Before I finished reading the book I was not interested in alcohol and my husband had similar feelings when he completed the book the next day.
Neither of us has had an alcoholic drink since then, which is 2 years ago last week. It is such a joy to be free of this addiction! We are fitter, happier and enjoying our lives now to the full. Thank you for the wonderful work you do.

I quit smoking 8 months ago and I am a happy non-smoker now. I am 32 years old and I have been smoking for 16 years at least a pack a day. I never thought I would want to quit and I cannot believe how brain-washed smokers are.

Thank you Alen for the freedom you gave back to me.
That sense of freedom is priceless. I am no longer a slave of smoking.

Thank you

Today marks 1 year of alcohol freedom for me after my journey to England to complete your clinic. Not counting the days (a relief in itself) I just happen to remember because it was a Friday the 13th (lucky day indeed)! Thank you so much to Allen Carr (brilliant man) and Chris and the Easyway team. The name of the program says it all. I never worry that I will fall into that trap again. I have true freedom and could not be happier. Don’t hesitate, be free and go live your life!

I have stopped now for three weeks and I am so happy to be free from my nicotine monster. I never thought I could stop and the more I feared stopping the more I smoked ! I read Easy Way and enjoyed stopping, however, in the Timing chapter I recommend not to stop when your wife has PMT ! Thank you Easy Way, you have saved my life.

Dear Sirs,

My name is Maria Alexandrova. I’m 30. I’m from in St. Petersburg, Russia. I’ve been terribly fighting with my addiction to niсotinе with 20-30 cigarettes per day within the last 5 years. For the last two months that terrible thing was just killing me away and destroying all my life. I stopped seeing my friends and family for spending lots of time alone and just smoking cigarettes. Sometimes I couldn’t get up in the morning because of that depressive thoughts which as I know now were under the influence of nicotine exposure. Those moments I thought my life was completely crashed and over and I just couldn’t go on any more. Actually I was quite close to suicidical intentions. Thanks to Allen Carr’s Easyway to Stop Smoking Method I immediately gave up smoking. Just at once. I completely stopped just after introduction of the book, even before the first chapter. I was shocked. All these things have been always on my mind and now someone really says them aloud to me and we all can realize that’s the truth itself. It was such a great relief for me!! Now I’m a happy ex-smoker and I don’t have any idea of smoking at all. Previously I was terribly suffering trying to give up. Now I’m absolutely happy as I’ve never smoked before. So much energy, joy and fun in everyday life! That’s a freedom indeed. Thank you all. Thanks to Allen. He really did some miracle. That’s a new approach, the cure for the most horrible disease of all times. I’m convinced through years it will be helping more and more people to give up smoking and live their happy nicotine-free lives. Please, proceed, your work is very important! You can really rescue the whole world! Take care! Regards, Maria Alexandrova

Hi, my name’s Konstantin, i live in Russia.
I don’t know, what to say, you just saved me from my father’s death

The deal is my father died because of cancer.
It happend, after 2 years since i started smoking and everyone knows, he diead actually because he was smoking too much (like 60 a day).
But it didn’t stop me.
I knew, I’ll die some day too because of this, but i couldnt do anything with it.
I tried to stop, but it usually was for 3 weeks…
But thank Jesus, I’ve got your book and now I really know, that stop smoking is easy.

You saved me, and I’m sure, you will save a lot of people in the future

Good Luck

I was smoking 30 years long. In the last 10 years I have been trying to quite many times. I always used the nicotine gums and plasters but I ended up smoking again. One day I heard from a friend who quitted smoking just by reading Allen Carr’s book. So, I bought it and started reading. By reading the book I realized that is all in my mind and my will. So I took my time reading the book and going deep in myself to understand what the cigarettes were really doing to me. Now I am happy and free! Yesterday I did a 6 hours hike with a very strong elevation and my lungs were very happy :-)

Thank you very much Allen!

I have been a non-smoker for 10 days. Those first few days were not easy-but Easyway gave me the tools to make being a non-smoker for life EASY. I was a smoker for 16 years and have attempted to stop multiple times with multiple NRT’s. The book, ‘The Easyway to Quit Smoking for Women” really changed my perspective on smoking, helped me to understand the addiction, and greatly changed my thinking process during the initial withdraw and subsequent cravings. I have never felt so equipped during the quitting process. Thank you so much to all who contributed to this book! $7.00 well spent plus it is such an easy read! Thanks again!

I’ve just finished the book smoked my last cigarette in the pack and I know this is the right thing. I feel scared, excited, stupid for wasting all these years addicted. Hoping the monster will go and I thank those who have posted below for making me know I’m not alone on this journey to freedom.

Today I’m only 2 months away from having been a non smoker for 1 whole year. I couldn’t be happier!!
I went to the clinic in Raynes Park on the 9th August 2014. The lady was Colleen and she was amazing: funny, personable and very professional.
My experience there was great but I can’t deny that I was scared, sceptical and very apprehensive about what my life would be without cigarettes.
That night I had a really bad night, waking up every hour and feeling a big sense of loss. Very strange and vivid experience. The next morning though, I woke up with absolutely no desire to smoke and I haven’t had any since.
This method works, don’t ever give up on yourself. People will respond to different media so find the one that actually get through to you but in the end I think that Allen Carr the easy way is the best method ever!! I have tried a few.
I can only highly recommend it.
After my visit to the clinic I had a work trip, a holiday, parents visiting, stress and the usual events that would normally have made me want a cigarette. NEVER AGAIN!!!.
Amazing.
As an anecdote,about 1 month ago, I met one guy that was at the same session as me and he too has never smoked again! We hugged each other in delight and happiness!
If you hesitate, don’t, it’s the best thing you will ever do.

I don’t see any testimonials to the Stop Drinking Now method, but that’s what I’m here to thank Allen Carr for. I have been a happy nondrinker for almost 6 weeks now. I have gone through several social situations without even the desire to have a drink. The Allen Carr method opened my eyes, and gave me my life back. Thank you!

I read your book on a whim and finished in two days! I honestly felt really apprehensive about trying to quit again, but I smoked my final cigarette on 6/1/15 at 9:26pm and I feel pretty damn good about it so far! I keep telling myself that I’m a non-smoker and non-smoker’s have no desire to smoke. I’d been smoking since age 15, I’m now 34.

Regardless, this book is really amazing, it applies to anything we do in life and I’m really glad to have read it. Thank you for the opportunity! I fully intend to continue on being a happy, healthy, non-smoker.

Three weeks ago, I was gifted a copy of your book for the third time. Two other friends who were successful with your method had given me their copy, but I was afraid to read them, so they sat on my shelf for years. I took the third gift as a sign, given to me by a friend who’s entire workplace had quit together using your method. I read it in one day, and have been a non smoker for five days now. You’re right, it’s ridiculously easy! I’m 30 years old,and have been a pack a day smoker for 16 years. I had been convinced that I just didn’t have it in me to stop, and that I was doomed to develop a horrible disease and die from my pathetic addiction. Not only do I feel physically better, but the self loathing I’ve been burdened with for years is also lifting. I know that I’ll never smoke again. Thank you so much for sharing your experience with us. I’ve passed along all three copies of your book to loved ones.

With love and gratitude,
Laura

hi I read the easyway book 31/10/2006. I haven’t had a smoke since and am very proud of myself as I didn’t think I could stop smoking before I read the book. I am from hervey bay in queensland Australia. I felt like I had never smoked from the minute I put out my last cigarette. it was quite a strange feeling. I have just finished the easyway to enjoy flying and will be going on my first plane trip since very soon so I am looking forward to it now. I have just found easyway to stop worrying. wish I had found that years ago so that is my next goal. thankyou allen and team. I couldn’t have done it without you. xx 1/6/2015
I heard of the allen carr books from my auntie in Scotland who had to give up. I thought if it helped her, which it did, then it will help me.

I attended a seminar on 3rd January this year and so far after 4 months I have not had any alcohol since. Cris lead the session and encouraged people in a non-judgemental way. I was optimistic but not convinced I would manage to give up but it has been easier than I anticipated. I won’t say I never think about a glass of wine but I can quite easily remind myself that it doesn’t do any of the things that the advertising suggests and won’t make me more confident, less stressed or give me a better day! Thank you for the seminar and support when I attended the half day follow up it has made a huge difference to how I feel about myself

Hi there,

Just wanted to send an email to say thank you very much! I’ve just reached 3 months without smoking at all. To be honest I’m completely astonished as even towards the end of your course I still didn’t believe it was going to work. I’m not sure what you did but whatever it was has worked a treat. It’s not often I send an email like this but I find we’re often too quick to complain about something but slow to give credit where it is due and I think credit is definitely due.

I’ve recommended your course to anyone I know who smokes and that will listen to me!
I can’t remember her name but the lady who took my session in Southampton was fantastic too.

So once again thanks for the help in giving up, I didn’t think I was ever going to do it.

Keep up the good work!

Sean

YIPPEE! I’M A NON-SMOKER

I can not believe how easy it was to become a non-smoker! Why did I wait so long? Well, I know why. I hadn’t heard of your book until 2 weeks ago, when a friend of mine, who used to smoke, told me about it.

From about 2 thirds of the way through the book I was desperate to get to the end so I could stop smoking. The last cigarette was disgusting and I only managed to take about 2 puffs of it.

I can not thank you enough. It is now as if I have forgotten I ever smoked.
I don’t miss anything about it. I can be around people smoking and it doesn’t bother me at all.

The main reason I wanted to stop was because I realised that whenever I laughed, I would cough. As a result, I stopped laughing. I would chuckle or have a little giggle, but always held back from that proper throw your head back laugh.
Tonight I have been out with friends and have not laughed so much in years!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I attended your clinic in Southampton on 22/05/2015 with an open mind but sceptical as to how it would work. Well it has. I haven’t touched or wanted to touch a cigarette since. (the tobacco I had left is still in the house because I can’t bring myself to throw it away – i’m going to give it to someone who will use it but I don’t want it.) The work you do is amazing. I have recommended you to 2 people already!
I couldn’t say this in the session but for me this was a double whammy because I have also given up cannabis – having Smoked this also on a daily basis for many years. That part feels slightly harder because of the complete change of lifestyle / routine, but i believe I can do this and I don’t think i would ever have felt so positive before attending.
You have changed my life and I still cry just saying that. My daughter is so proud of me and she is reading the health benefits with me on the hand out you gave me. She now knows that i have cut the risk of heart attack (this is how my father passed away last year) and is very pleased about that as she had asked me on more than one occasion if I would die the same way as grandad – something that hurt every time she asked because I knew I was at risk.
Thank you for giving me back my life!
Btw if the lady Sarah who also attended that course ever gets on touch, please tell her I’m thinking of her. I didn’t take her contact details but wish I had.
Thank you again – you are an inspiration.
Kate

Very inspiring
I attended the EasyWay clinic just over 4 weeks ago and I can honestly say it was the best thing I have ever done for myself as smoking was the worst thing I have ever done to myself! I cannot describe the feeling of freedom that I am experiencing. The fact that I have my self esteem back, increasingly improved health ( I’m visiting the gym again!) extra cash in my pocket, not to mention the feeling of relief from my loved ones knowing that I’m probably going to be around longer now, – is indescribable. Thank you to all at EasyWay, the team was marvelous but an especially big thank you to Emma the therapist who has helped turn my life around. To anyone that is struggling to come to terms as to whether to quit smoking, my advice is to just book yourself onto the course and DO IT – it will be the best decision you will have ever made !

Now non smoker for over a year. Actually cant believe i ever smoked now.

I read your control your alcohol book a few months ago too, instant change yet again.
The amount i keep in my pocket on a night out now, crazy small!

And just recently, the book about weight control (not that i thought i was over weight, more curious) Again instant and massive change, dropped over 6 kg i didn’t know i was carrying, without trying and feel so much better about life in general!

I recon that i have probably added close to 20 years of good living to my life, perhaps more, thanks to you, cheers doesn’t even start to cover it.

I have put my girl on to your books too and her family have started to take to them as well.

My 28 year old daughter bought me Allen Carr’s easy way to stop smoking since she had read it and quit herself.

I have smoked off and on for over 30 years. I’d quit, start, quit, start. I am now 58, a female and every time I would get a cold it would go right to my lungs. I also had an awful cough. I did not think I could quit smoking but I told my daughter I would give it a shot.

I was hesitant at first, and then less than halway through the book, I knew I was quiting. It changed my entire way of thinking in regards to quiting this nasty thing called smoking. So I set my date, went past it. I wasn’t finished the book (I drug it out on purpose)

I started thinking well, I am to stressed now. Going through a divorce, taking a new job…… I thought well let me try now and if it works it will prove that you can do this under extreme stress.

I picked my quit day and stuck to it. Different than my daughter who quit and never looked back, I carried my book around with me for the first 3 days of quiting. I picked my quit day so I knew I would be home so I could do this. Every time I thought I missed smoking I started reading the book again and going over certain points. I must have read this entire book 3 times but I DID QUIT SMOKING and stuck to quiting. After 3 days I just felt like I was forgetting to do something. Yes, I was forgetting to poison myself. The book reminded me to-not think of it as losing something but by gaining so much as far as health, finances, and freedom from the addiction .

I could not believe it was this easy to quit. I wish I would have done this many years ago however the brainwashing does make people think differently. NOT THIS TIME, I am free from smoking and so happy. My cough is gone, most of my allergies are gone and I literally feel years younger. I have more energy, I look and feel a million times better. What is so wonderful is my life is not controlled by when I can feed my addiction on a regular schedule. I am FREE!! THANK YOU ALLEN CARR!! This book is awesome!! If my daughter and I quit, anyone can if they really want to.

THANK YOU! I have already convinced 4 people to try this book and all have passed the two month mark. Just posted this message to facebook:

Over the holidays my father asked me if I would quit smoking if he quit smoking. I said that was not something I would be willing to agree to because it would link my path to health with another person’s path. I have since quit smoking and will never have another cigarette for as long as I live. Even if I am diagnosed with a terminal illness or find out a meteor is going to hit the planet with no hope of survival, I will not light up again. I do not miss them and I do not want them.

I smoked cigarettes from the age of 11 to the age of 29. I never thought that I would become a pack/day smoker in the early years. I justified lighting up day after day by telling myself that I would quit smoking soon, even tomorrow. I have never bought more than one pack at a time, even though buying cartons is more economical. Every morning I woke up and hoped that I wouldn’t feel the need to smoke. Every morning I would wake up and wish that I had never had the first cigarette. Every morning I would convince myself that I needed a cigarette to get through the day. Every morning I looked at the cigarette I had just lit and thought to myself, “is this the cigarette that gives me cancer?” Then, I looked at examples of other smokers who had not succumbed to smoking related illnesses as proof that I could be one of the lucky ones who “enjoyed” cigarettes without negative consequences. Those examples included everyone from the octogenarians at the assisted living facility I worked at to my own father, who has smoked at least a pack every day of my life.

I was afraid. I did not want to let go of my precious cigarettes. They helped me to stay calm, focused, relaxed, confident, etc. if I had a bad moment at work, I went for a cig break. Anxious-cig break. Upset-cig break. Happy- cig break to celebrate! I tended to relieve my withdrawal pangs at times of stress, boredom, concentration, relaxation, et al. Of course I felt better when I smoked a cigarette; all I had done is to relieve the stress and discomfort caused by withdrawing from the previous cigarette.

Cigarettes are both a disease and its antidote. Essentially, each cigarette you smoke forces you to smoke the next cigarette to relieve the symptoms of nicotine withdrawal. Cigarette smokers are just like heroin addicts in a way. The sad thing about cigarettes is that we pay ridiculous amounts of money for them and don’t even get high. We only maintain a state of calm before the storm. If we miss a hit (cigarette break), we become monsters. If we smoke them, we don’t have a feeling of euphoria, only a feeling of normalcy. If we choose to quit engaging in the cycle, we must fear the dreaded nicotine withdrawal that keep smokers from even thinking about quitting. We have all heard the following: Nicotine is as addictive as heroin.

Yes. It is addictive. But the good news is, nicotine has a very short half life in our bodies, unlike heroin. If you are a smoker, you withdraw from 97% of your nicotine addiction within 8 hours of smoking your last cigarette. You SLEEP through nicotine withdrawal every night without knowing it. Don’t believe the hype the media and medical establishment feeds you. You can quit smoking if you want to; it is all a matter of perspective.

I can’t type the cure to your addiction on Facebook. But you can buy the cure and read it.
I was able to overcome my nicotine addiction by reading Allen Carr’s Easyway to Stop Smoking.
It is not a gimmick. If you have half a brain this will appeal to you. Read it. It is not going to kill you. Worst case scenario, you are instructed to smoke while reading the book and no one is going to stop you from smoking after you read the book. It either helps you quit or it doesn’t. You are not having to take patches, gum, or pills that hurt your system. This book costs ten dollars on Amazon. Two tears in a bucket…

oday is Saturday May 16th, three (3) days before my 51st birthday, and I have been smoke-free since Sunday April 14th. I am so grateful for this book. A “smoking” co-worked told me about the book a year ago as we stood outside, in the freezing cold, discussing ways to quit smoking. She mentioned that a friend of hers read the book, “while she smoked” and quit after finishing the book. I didn’t believe her, but downloaded the book on my smartphone. I started and stopped reading it several times, all the while feeling helpless like I was never going to be able to end the habit, I mean addiction. I spent more and more money on cigarettes and felt like they truly controlled me. The sad part is that three years earlier, I had been a non-smoker for 15 years. I stopped smoking years ago and fell into the “one cigarette won’t hurt mentality” during a get together with friends I don’t regularly associate with. So, this is my second but last relationship with nicotine addiction. I am truly a person that tested myself and thought I could handle it — and couldn’t.

As for Allen Carr, his book is better than the nicotine gum and nicotine inhaler the doctor prescribed to me to assist in quitting smoking. Although I purchased the gum and filled the costly prescription of nicotrol inhalers, I realized during my first week or two of not smoking that using these replacements was not going to help rid my addiction to nicotine. That’s the drug I’m trying to break free from.

I plan to keep my copy of the book handy and have referred to it over the last few weeks. It’s a great resource. Thank you again, Allen Carr — for sharing your journey and insight into breaking this addiction forever. God Bless You!!!!

I am a non-smoker for life thanks to Allen Carrs easyway to stop smoking. I didnt realise how easy it could be and I feel overwhelmed with gratitude. After many failed attempts to stop its hard for me to accept that I am finally a non-smoker for life. I read the illustrated guide to stop smoking and this helped me to open my mind and see what was really going on. I had been trying to understand how smokers could never have enjoyed a single cigarette they have smoked and now I fully understand why this is true although at first it was so hard for me to understand. And the truth of it is so beautiful. I am over the moon my mind has been blown open and I feel like I am free!! I feel with 100% certainty that I will never smoke again and I am still amazed at the simplicity of this method and how easy it is to stop smoking. I am forever greatful.

I now want to help others become non-smokers and I want more people including organisations that run the wrong stop smoking programmes. I also want to write to an MP. Every smoker should read this book. Thankyou, thankyou, thankyou, thankyou, thankyou, thankyou………”

Well I just can not believe how easy it has been to stop smoking. I just could not put the book down. All the way through there were comments which explained exactly how I was feeling and why I had failed before. I have wanted to stop for so long and the book removed all of the fear. This is my 5th day of being a non smoker after 30 years of smoking and I know I will not put another cigarette in my mouth. I am so excited for my future now. Thank You Allen Carr, AMAZING !

What a revelation. Each time I’ve tried to quit in the past, I failed miserably. After reading Finally Free! (Easyway for Women), I confirm that I am a happy non-smoker. I have more time to do the things I love without being interrupted by the need to smoke. Thanks so much! (Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada)

My name is Jennifer and I live in Ohio. I’ve been a regular smoker since I was 15 years old. I’m about to turn 32 in a couple of weeks. I have tried a few different ways to try to quit smoking. The most recent was through the Ohio quit line. They sent me patches and I made it about 2 weeks. I was so motivated at first and then not at all. The patches made me ill after a while and I tried cutting them in half nothing worked. I ended up right back to smoking. Skip forward 6 months. I got a positive pregnancy test! I knew I just knew I had to quit. But had no idea how. This will be my 5th pregnancy with 1 living child with no reasons why. This was extremely important! I googled until I couldn’t see anymore just when I was about to give up I found your book. I honestly thought how silly.. but I read it anyway. A week after reading I knew it was silly and I was still smoking. I read it again. The day after I finished I woke up with 3 cigarettes left. When I got to the last one.. my ash tray was full, it was gross, it smelled, and I just felt like this is it… I do NOT want to do this anymore! I had none of my typical panic anxiety attacks which got really bad in previous attempts. I was just done. It was like I had never smoked before. It was normal. I didn’t even say anything to anyone I just stopped. Soon people just noticed. I went to my first doctors appt and was able to tell them I had not smoked in 2 weeks and they marked me as an ex smoker. We heard a heart beat which had not happened with the previous 2. It’s been a month since I quit and my pregnancy is progressing well. I feel like I owe you so much!! Clearly it can’t be proven that my quitting helped my pregnancy but I absolutely feel like there would have been the same results had I not quit. Thank you soooo much!
