Are you serious about ending your addiction to cigarettes? Are you ready to break free of tobacco without drugs, patches or the agony of withdrawal?

HOW TO STOP DYING FOR A CIGARETTE uses the how, when and where of your smoking habit to attack the root cause of your addiction. As you dissociate smoking from the activities to which you’ve attached it, you begin to resent its intrusion into your life. The more you lessen your intake of nicotine and reduce your physiological cravings, the more smoking becomes downright annoying. Before long, you won’t want to be bothered to light up anymore, and you’re free.

Sounds too good to be true? Well, it’s not! This workbook-diary, a pen or pencil and the sincere desire to get out of the clutches of tobacco companies are all you need to get started. The author created this program and used it successfully to end her 25-year smoking addiction without medication, hypnosis or workshops. The only side-effects were loss of stale tobacco odor, cessation of constant coughing, heightened senses of taste and smell, increased energy level, and a much higher likelihood of living into old age!

Following simple exercises and recording your experiences and feelings in the included diary that only you will read will guide you toward freedom from tobacco. It can be done! The sincere desire and determination to succeed are all you need to get started with the HOW TO STOP DYING FOR A CIGARETTE program. Pick up this book, and you’ll have made a great start toward putting down cigarettes for good.


You have written a helpful guide here, and it addresses many of the secondary rewards that are embedded in smoking addiction. In breaking the association between smoking and pleasurable activities, and in making smoking more of a required chore than reward, you are challenging the place that cigarettes have in people’s lives. You also address the fear that one is relinquishing their “friend” forever, thereby activating feelings of loss and anxiety..
