Publisher's Summary

Everyone knows how bad smoking is for them: about half of all regular cigarette smokers will be killed by their habit, but they just can't seem to give up. If you're really serious about giving up smoking then this is the book that will not only help you to stop, but to stay stopped for good.

Gillian Riley's techniques allow you to understand your addiction, take control and break your habit. There is a step-by-step giving up programme that is easy to follow and really works. Even in stressful situations, or when boredom sets in, you'll soon realise that even though the freedom and opportunity to smoke is there you have chosen not to.

How to Stop Smoking and Stay Stopped for Good will even help you to give up smoking without gaining weight.

From the new edition of the best-selling programme to stop smoking and stay stopped for good.

only half of a solution

Any additional comments?

I have been a smoker for 11 years and tried to quit many times. There are many good tips in this book but unless you are listening to it constantly it is very hard to actually quit using this book alone. It helped me cut back but I could not quit entirely based on the advice in this book. It DID get me to think a lot about quitting and realize how much I wanted to quit and I don't regret listening to it. It also made me hold myself accountable for quitting and not push blame on others or make excuses for smoking. Listening to this book and trying it did put me in the right state of mind to actually quit, but it wasn't until I combined some of that mentality with nicotine replacement therapy (which the book advises against) was I able to actually quit cigarettes 100%.

Made a lot of sense, eventually

Took me several listens before I took in the principal of the book, it's not hard just can take a while to get your head around it

Well it worked for me

Would you consider the audio edition of How to Stop Smoking and Stay Stopped for Good to be better than the print version?

I gave up smoking May 2013 using this audiobook (over a year). I have tried everything and it hasnt worked. Now it may have been partly due to other things (youtube vids, gritted teeth etc) but I think this book was the deal clincher!

What other book might you compare How to Stop Smoking and Stay Stopped for Good to, and why?

Bit like Allen Carr but i preferred Gillian everyday of the week!

What about Jerome Pride’s performance did you like?

Not bad - very listenable

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

What a drag - 20 years of smoking,,,

Any additional comments?

It is no magic cure - read it, and re-read until you feel ready to quit - good luck

Good for those too lazy to read

Got this for my boyfriend who would never have read the book & it did work for a while, but he has gone back to his old ways.



That said, I think it is more about him than the book or it's techniques as it was more me that wanted him to give up than him wanting it himself.

Don't waste your money!

What disappointed you about How to Stop Smoking and Stay Stopped for Good?

It still makes you use willpower! Using willpower is difficult! Read Easyway Allen Carr! It's the only way !

Would you recommend How to Stop Smoking and Stay Stopped for Good to your friends? Why or why not?

No! You need to understand nicotine addiction and the brainwashing! This book told me to keep cigarettes on me once I had stopped this means using willpower to resist!! If you wanted to stop eating chocolate would you carry a bar of galaxy round with you? Also going on about "the desire to smoke" smoking is nicotine addiction and once you understand nicotine addiction and realise the reasons you smoke are illusions you will find it easy! Allen Carrs Easyway does just this and it makes it easy to stop and you don't have to use willpower to "remove the disire to smoke"

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

None it makes you feel you're making a sacrifice! You're NOT!

Any additional comments?

If you're gonna buy a book make it EASYWAY!
