If you are a ‘happy smoker’ then continue on puffing away, but if you desperately want to stop smoking then checkout some facts to help you quit smoking.

I regretfully started smoking when I was 17 and after 12 whole years of not being able to kick it, I am finally free.2

Far from highlight horrific statistics to try to scare you into quitting (which we all know don’t really work) I want to share 8 eye opening points from the book that helped me find my freedom, Allen Carr’s "Easyway To Stop Smoking." Check out why this book has been a #1 Best Seller in ten countries and has sold over 13,000,000 copies worldwide all through word of mouth… here are 8 facts to help you quit smoking.

1. It is Purely an Addiction to Nicotine

Just like a junkie is addicted to heroine, or an alcoholic, alcohol, smokers are addicted to nicotine.

The only reason that people smoke is because they are addicted to the nicotine that is contained in every single cigarette;

this is one of the most important facts to help you quit smoking.

After someone smokes their first cigarette due to peer pressure, curiosity or stupidity, every cigarette that follows afterwards is smoked in order to alleviate the nicotine cravings that are now in your body from the one smoked before.

2. It Makes You Think

Would you wear tight shoes all day just so you could feel the relief of taking them off in the evening?

That is what smoking is like.

We smoke only to relieve our cravings so we can feel ‘okay’ again.

Why wear the shoes (smoke) at all?

3. The ‘every Now and then Smoker’

For years I was frustrated at the fact that I couldn’t just smoke a single cigarette here or there, or save it solely for the weekends.

I had friends who were proud to say that they only smoked occasionally and would almost boast how little they could smoke.

In his book Allen Carr questions why someone would feel the need to boast about how little they do something or can go without something unless it was something that they themselves wish they didn't do.

When was the last time you heard your friend boasting about how much she likes yoga but how she restricts herself to only one class every two weeks?

People need to boast how little they can smoke because regardless of how frequent or rarely they do, at the end of the day they are addicted to nicotine.
