A list of stop smoking self help books
« on: January 12, 2016, 02:28:51 am »
Thinking of giving up smoking? You may be one of the lucky ones that can go “cold turkey” all by yourself. But if you want a bit of a helping hand, try one of these books. The same approach won’t necessarily work for everyone, but if you’re struggling, one of these could be just what you need to kickstart your smoke-free life.

1. Allen Carr's Easy Way to Stop Smoking by Allen Carr

Written by an accountant who smoked 100 cigarettes a day until he gave up and wrote this best-selling book, this is the one that everyone knows. More than nine million copies have been sold worldwide and his method has apparently helped more than 25 million people give up smoking – including celebrities from Ashton Kutcher and Anjelica Huston to Ruby Wax and Sir Anthony Hopkins.

2. How to Stop Smoking and Stay Stopped for Good by Gillian Riley

Former smoker Gillian Riley identifies the thinking that drives addictive behaviour and the techniques you need to control this behaviour. Her book promises to help you understand your nicotine addiction and get to the point where you realise that even though you could smoke, you are choosing not to.

3. The SmokeFree Formula: A Revolutionary Way to Stop Smoking Now by Professor Robert West

There’s not a lot that Professor Robert West doesn’t know about smoking and addiction. He is an internationally recognised figure on the topic and an adviser to the Department of Health who helped set up the NHS Stop Smoking Services. His approach, which has been helping smokers quit for more than 30 years, includes encouraging you to find your own personal formula for stopping, rather than relying on a “one size fits all” technique.

4. Quit Smoking Today Without Gaining Weight by Paul McKenna

This book, from renowned hypnotist, Paul McKenna, addresses one of many people’s biggest concerns about smoking – that they’ll replace one craving with another and pile on the pounds. It comes with a CD and builds on McKenna’s theory that small changes in people’s lives can yield huge results.

5. The Voice of Tobacco: A Dedicated Smoker's Diary of Not Smoking by Richard Craze

Although it’s out of print, you can pick up second-hand copies on Amazon and this practical, funny diary gets praise from those who have found it succeeded where others failed.
Quit Date: 04-04-2014

You don’t need cigarettes to be complete. All the happiness, comfort and peace you seek, is already inside you.

Somebody recommended The Nicotine Trick by Neil Casey to me.  I've not read it myself so not sure how good it is.

There's also a book called The Smoke Free Smoke Break which is meant to be quite good and a different approach but again, I've not read it.
