Excerpts from
"How to Quit Smoking Without Willpower or Struggle"


WHAT IS THE PROBLEM?

...the problem is not in the substance, but in the "habit" of using it. For without the habit, the addiction, tobacco has no power of its own. It is as harmless and insignificant as any simple garden variety weed.

It is the internal perception we hold about the drug that makes it so dangerous. What I shall illustrate herein is a method by which one may change that perception permanently, without "fighting the urges" or going "cold turkey". 
 

WHAT IS A HABIT? 

Smoking is a habit. Habits are created by repetitious behavior, and are built, assembled if you will, over a period of time.

If we were computers, and I strongly believe that we are indeed the most sophisticated computers conceivable, then our "habits" would be called our programs.

Removing a program from a computer is a simple, mechanical process. Removing a habit from a human being is not really as simple, but is still a mechanical process.

Each requires a process of steps, which, taken one at a time in order, with care and commitment, will achieve the desired result. 
 

LEARNING AND UNLEARNING

When one learns to smoke, they must overcome the body's natural resistance to breathing a toxic substance, with only the ardent desire to overcome the body's own safeguards to keep the process going.

However, reversing the habit, although perhaps a bit more complex, moves one toward the body and its needs, not away from it.

Therefore ending the habit will feel more natural and is actually easier, and far less painful, than starting it. 
 

HOW DO I START TO QUIT? 

The first place to start is with this simple, direct question:

Do you want to quit smoking?

The next question must be: Are you ready to begin to do it now?

If the answers to both these questions is yes, then read on, and just do what the book tells you to do.

It will work.
 

USING "WILLPOWER"

I tried "willpower" three times before designing this process.

Each time lasted from only a few days to a week.

Each time I discovered that I could not "break" the habit simply by denying it.

Just by telling myself no, when my body and mind were craving, was ridiculous. 
 

DOES IT REALLY WORK? 

If you desire to end your enslavement to a product you no longer wish to purchase, use, or allow to diminish the quality of your life, then use this little book as the key to your doorway out.

The method does work.

It will work for anyone who sincerely wants to use it.

All that is needed is your attention. Although I have stated that you can quit without willpower, you must, of course, be ready to do the simple behaviors of the process, which do not include resisting smoking.

In fact, you are encouraged to smoke each and every time you really want or "need" to.

This process is not designed to get you to stop smoking, but to stop wanting to. Once you no longer have the desire to smoke, you will never feel the need to “learn” the habit again.

Being around others who are smoking will not cause you to crave a cigarette. Also, you will not be able to just pick up a cigarette and return to your habit.

There will be no residual habit left in you.

You will be as if you never were a smoker.
