I have been smoking for almost 60 years and have tried quitting several times. The patch/gum/Champex did not work. Nicotene is an addiction. One week ago I finished the book Easy Way to Stop Smoking by Allen Carr. I smoked my last cigarette as I finished the book and have not once craved a cigarette since. This book is amazing, I highly recommend it and don't understand why Doctors or sites like this (AHS) don't recommend it. I personally know at least 30 people who have quit using this method. Do yourself a favor and get this book (also available on cd). Its only around $20, easy reading and it WORKS! What do you have to lose?
