I dropped the topic of quitting a bit, although there were still quite a few articles on the agenda, from informational to based on personal experiences. In the fall of 2017, it will be three years since I stopped smoking, so I probably stopped remembering this habit, although in the first months I did not want to share the greatest joy. In general, I decided to finish what I started, especially since there will soon be new cycles on health and self-development. Something that I already achieved, something that I will achieve in parallel with the readers. I really hope that in the last few years you have started to write a little better, which means that this and other articles will be seen by people who will find it useful.
Many people began their attempt to quit smoking with Allen Carr's book "The Easy Way to Quit Smoking. "Why buy when you can read online or download from torrents? This is your right, but I continue to bet on legal methods, in addition to spending even a small amount of money, you will have a great incentive to read the book to the end. I'll write about buying or stealing a book at the end of the article. And now I would like to talk a little about the methods described in this book.
When you get your hands on Allen Carr's book "The Easy Way to Quit Smoking", it looks like it's in the bag, now you will read a smart book and life will improve. The promised way is easy, which means you don't have to work at all. It may well be so. Many managed to kick their bad habit simply by reading to the end. Unfortunately, the habit returned to many after a short time. And all because they did not read carefully, fluently and without thinking, perhaps relying on the Russian. By the way, the author of the book is a foreigner, so you shouldn't be 100% accurate.
I wrote in a separate article about other books on the same topic that will help you get rid of other bad habits. Don't be puffed up in the hope that quitting will solve all your problems. In fact, you will only embark on the path of self-improvement with confidence in your abilities.
What's the magic of Allen Carr's easy way to quit smoking? Do you really have a special writing style? Of course, no. The book helps to reflect on his habit. It shows the true face of the enemy, without intimidating with horror stories about various sores that threaten the smoker, about which there is already a lot of material on the net (in the article: "smoking damage to the human body" - I tried to reveal this topicas much as possible, without unnecessary horror stories). Allen says that smoking is just an imposed necessity, thanks to which he spends a lot of money to enrich corporations. Just think that the state is not striving to introduce a complete ban on tobacco, although it could, the church does not say anything about smoking, although it would be worth it, they only need smokers. Sick people who die prematurely pay an additional tax for the right to voluntarily destroy themselves.
In The Easy Way to Quit, Allen Carr emphasizes that there is essentially nothing to quit smoking, you don't give up on something important and useful, you just stop paying corporations by killing yourself. Remember, when he was a kid, he didn't need to smoke a cigarette after dinner to get more pleasure, he didn't need to light a cigarette while talking to friends, he felt great right after sleeping. Cigarettes, according to Allen, and it is difficult to argue with him, all this takes away from the smoker, whose life consists of two periods: the desire to smoke and the smoking itself; the only pleasure becomes the satisfaction of his need for nicotine, which immediately arises again, it is worth throwing out the butt. The most surprising thing is that having freed his life from tobacco, he will get rid of the need to consume it, that is, if he stops smoking, he will stop wanting to smoke.
The book is written in a fairly simple and accessible language and has been translated with high quality, so reading it is not only useful but also enjoyable. So feel free to purchase its electronic or paper version, if your smoking problem has not yet been solved.
Who and why is it useful to read Allen Carr's book
First of all, the book "The Easy Way to Quit Smoking" will help those who are really going to quit. I seriously tuned in and seek help whenever possible, for example I personally used the book as an additional source of motivation as well as an opportunity to shift attention from smoking to something else.
According to statistics, about 80% of Allen Carr readers quit smoking. But do not think that everyone has such a weak character and that the writer is a great mystic and hypnotist. People just start thinking and sooner or later come to the conclusion that quitting smoking is really easy. "In fact, there is nothing to throw away, " which is why Carr likes to express himself in his own book, all that is needed is to stop being subjected to daily torture and poisoning. And to quit, he can pay corporations to destroy his own health.
So smoking is not won by weak-willed and carefree people, but on the contrary, by those who clearly think and take care of their health and the health of their own children. A high percentage cannot help but rejoice; This means that the world has not yet gone crazy and most people still know how to assess the situation sensibly. And even if I, and people like me, quit smoking not ONLY thanks to the book "An Easy Way to Quit Smoking", but it wasn't without it.
Why buy Allen Carr's book
I have come across the theory that no quitting method works until I pay for it. Here a subconscious trigger is fired, hammered like a child, according to which nothing is given for free and for free, for example, the principle of the proverb "you cannot easily get a fish out of a pond. "It is quite possible that I, like many others, have ever been exposed to this effect, because the first time I was given the book "An easy way to quit smoking" friends who wanted to help, respectively, I did not see any effect on thebook. In the same way, the pills, with which at least half of the ex-smokers quit, did not work in due time, because the first pack I also received for free. As a result, the process to quit smoking spanned five long years from 2009 to 2014. However, I will tell my story another time.
Among other things, as a legal blogger advocating for law enforcement and the "start with yourself" principle, he is simply not ready to give advice on stealing. On the other hand, I believe that any work after the death of the author should become the property of the public. So decide for yourself, the main thing is not to read online. Most likely, one reading of the book is not enough, so it is always good to have it on hand for each new attempt.
For example, I took three full readings, the last one being more of a distraction from the urge to smoke, but extremely effective. I read that you can smoke at any time, I had a pack of cigarettes against all advice, I knew that I could give up my plans at any time, the stronger and more confident I became in my desire to quit tobacco. My affirmations, my motivations, and Allen Carr's "An Easy Way to Quit" book, downloaded for a penny, also worked. Even if the method was not the easiest, the goal was achieved and the next step was taken.
