Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, 2006/11/12 - "How to stop smoking for good in 5 days" is a unique new paperback. It’s a complete, structured, educational, self-help program - minus the classroom!.
If you’re among the 70% of smokers who would love to quit smoking, if only you knew how, the new paperback, “How to STOP SMOKING FOR GOOD in 5 Days”, could be just the answer. Whether you are an occasional smoker, or your idea of a smoke-break is when you don’t have one hanging off your bottom lip, if you use tobacco and want to stop, this book can show you the way. It’s a complete, structured, step-by-step, smoking cessation counseling support program – minus the classroom.
Comprised of five, full-length, daily “Modules”, the program treats cessation as an on-going process, employing the latest coping methods and behavior techniques, during a scheduled “countdown to stop day”. Over the course of 5 days (or longer depending on the outcome of your self-assessment performed during the program’s Introduction) you’ll learn what that the average successful ex-smoker requires 5 - 7 failed quit attempts to learn, including:
• How to take control of craving;
• How to stay focused and motivated;
• How to deal with smoke-breaks and smoking buddies;
• What to do with your hands and mouth;
• Effective methods for coping, making changes and conquering fear.
The program offers much more, including important new information regarding weight gain, the truth about physical withdrawal and proven methods used to minimize craving strength, duration and frequency.
“How to STOP SMOKING FOR GOOD in 5 Days” (stopsmokingforgood.com) is designed to help anyone prepare for and maintain a smoke-free life, regardless of level of addiction, schedule or budget. The program can be modified to suit practically anyone’s needs, providing support for NRT or “bupropion” users, as well as long-time smokers, currently smoking or not - and for those just looking for some help kicking the habit.
To ensure a smooth transition, motivating facts and statistics are combined with up-to-the-minute study results and behavior-shaping methods, providing a current, accurate, effective and stimulating program. The book also includes cutouts of carry-along support tools and features instruction on powerful techniques such as:
• Daily Affirmations;
• Positive substitution;
• Deep breathing;
• Deep relaxation and more
For a 5-day program, participants simply read one Module per day and follow the simple, step-by-step behavior exercises provided at the end of each session. Then just continue to refer to it as necessary, using your craving-handling strategies and the supplied tools, at the onset of each bout of craving.
The original “STOP SMOKING FOR GOOD” smoking cessation support program was first designed for the Canadian classroom, produced in 1999 and taught by veteran seminar producer - and pack-a-day smoker for over 25 years, Scot Fetherston. It was later further developed and condensed into a 10-piece, audio retail kit, with the help of Scot’s brother Mark Fetherston, a noted addictions counselor. The audio program has been available worldwide for $29.95us since 2002 at our website.
This new book closely adheres to the current audio program. It includes all the latest updates for 2007 and has been reworked to suit the book format. The program has been continually updated since its original writing and this 160-page, 6” x 9” paperback is the culmination of over seven years’ development.
Published by Yuna Health Publishing, it’s now available, starting a $7.90us for the e-book. Ask for “How to STOP SMOKING FOR GOOD in 5 Days” at your favorite bookstore or library, or order a copy online.
