Reviews about Quit and Stay Quit: A Personal Program to Stop Smoking (A Hazelden Workbook) (6):

I gave myself a great gift by stopping over 20 years ago. This book was a big help; It caused me to realize why I smoked, which is probably different for everyone.

I am a relapsed ex-smoker, but now have beginning health issues due to smoking, so I headed to my local bookstore for renewed motivation. I had read a great little book that spurred my initial quit two years ago, but couldn't remember the name. That book wasn't on the shelves, so I decided on "Quit & Stay Quit" based on the back cover info, primarily:

"Before you try to quit -- before you even decide if quitting is for you -- invest some time in 'Quit & Stay Quit'."

By page 44, I knew this was the not the book I needed. On page 7, there is a note:

"In a journal, (page 21) add a reason yourself -- one of the reasons you want to keep smoking."

There was no mention to begin a journal in the introductory pages, but no big deal. However, Page 21 gives no information whatsoever about a journal. It's a totally different chapter entitled "Smoking Is An Addiction."

Up to page 44, there were a couple sentences that stated "Now that you have quit (unless you are still smoking), ...", but the statement on page 44 ended my reading:

"Right now, you are a smoker who is not smoking. (If you are smoking while reading this, you must be highly [italicized] addicted.)"

HUH? What happened to: "Before you try to quit -- before you even decide if quitting is for you ..." There are still 230 pages to read!!

The author dedicates the book to a fellow doc that died from smoking, but it's clear the author never smoked in his life. I know I'm only speaking from review of the first 44 pages, but he is simply reusing the same tips & tricks: write down why you want to smoke, write down why you want to quit, record each cigarette of the day, etc.

Nothing new here, in addition to confusing and a little deceptive. Save your money.

I was one of those people who would quit smoking for a few months and then start back. A friend recommended "Quit & Stay Quit" so I purchased it. The day it arrived, I put it in the top of my closet where it sat for over a year. Once I decided I wanted to quit smoking, I retreived the book and began reading. I was so glad I had purchased the book. It was filled with so many great suggestions I used to stop smoking! I have been a succesful quitter for almost a year, and I know I'll never go back. I have recommend this book to several friends and they too have been successful in their quit! Thanks Dr. Rustin for helping me see the best way to "Kick Nic's Ash"!

Another one who has never smoked in his life and writes a book on how to stop smoking....hello! Something is wrong in this picture. How does he know what a smoker goes thru. It did not help at all. Do not recommend it.

I smoked 2 packs a day when I was using. I had tried all kinds of ways to quit. Then I found this little book. Read it on my lunch break.

It's simple, so easy, you take your time, your own pace, learn as you read, change your mind and stop when you're ready.

I actually quit 2 weeks before my scheduled cut-off date. I just didn't want to smoke anymore. Never went back, never wanted to and there's been plenty of stress since then. But I just dealt with it.

You can do it, if I could. Read a Book!

I used this book to quit smoking and it really worked for me. I got me thinking about why I smoked and had a great program on how to quit. I'm always recommending the book to others.
