I joined Quitnet.com and ordered the book Allen Carr's Easy Way to Stop Smoking Allen Carr. It's a British book and old and hard to find, I got it from Barnes and Noble, and that book changed my life. This book shows you the reality of what you are doing, and how it really is mind over matter. I smoked and read the book like he suggested, but by the time I had finished the book, I was no longer smoking and never have I had the urge since.
I was a pack and half a day smoker for 15 years. I never had tried to quit before. I have never had any urges.
I know it sounds strange, but its true!! If I can do it, anyone can!!!
Go to QuitNet
get Allen Carr's book and you will be on the road to a new life!
ps: Just this year, I started to be able to smell the earth, the richness of it. It is like candy, I can't breathe deeply enough to get all I want, the earth smells soo GREAT!!!!! And the leaves right now, the dampness, my god it's like a natural high. It's amazing how things smell, and it keeps getting better. I guess it took over 2 years for my sense of smell to come back?
