Synopses & Reviews
This book treats smoking as a real addiction and not just a bad habit. It teaches smokers who want to quit how to work
through their drug dependency step by step and equips them with an arsenal of self-defense skills to disarm their most
intense cravings and begin to retrain their minds. Inspiring stories from nine ex-smokers tell how they struggled through
withdrawal, learned to face new challenges, and coped with ordinary stress without smoking again.
