If you are one of them, this book is your guide. Based on the American Lung Association's Freedom from Smoking program, it acknowledges that each smoker is different and requires different strategies. You identify the places, times, moods, and conditions that trigger your need to smoke. Then you learn many techniques that you can choose from and adapt to fit your personal needs, lifestyle, and smoking habit. 7 Steps to a Smoke-Free Life leads you through this process: 1. Understand Your Habit and Addiction.
2. Build Your Motivation to Quit.
3. Develop Your Quitting Plan.
4. Prepare for Your Quit Day.
5. Quit.
6. Fighting Temptations--the First Two Weeks.
7. Staying Focused--the First Six Months.

The book is organized interactively, presenting information that will help you understand your habit and break it, worksheets, and checklists that you fill out to personalize your plan, and frequent "quick quit tips" of suggestions and motivation. Even if you've tried unsuccessfully to quit before, this book will prove full of useful tips to help you become an ex-smoker. --Joan Price --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, up-to-date aid to quit smoking. May 30 1998
By JDiver
As a trainer of health professioanls and trainers for smoking cessation programs (Lung, Cancer and Heart Associations), I think this is a very effective self-help book for those interested in quitting smoking. It follows time-tested and proven behavioral change techniques, and has information on the newest aids, such as nicotine replacement therapy (gum and patches) and Zyban. - This book should be of particular help to those who have tried to quit previously, using only "will power" or "gut power"- which for most of us, isn't enough. It also has lots of self-work that will enable the smoker to learn the unique aspects of his / her smoking habit, and to personalize the reasons and methods of quitting- as well as how to make the vital period after quitting lead to success, not relapse. - For the busy person or the one who has no interest in groups, this book can be a big help to make this attempt at quitting a difficult habit a lifelong success!

5.0 out of 5 stars Even you can quit too!!! Aug. 27 2002
This book helped me realize that I too can quit, and for good!!! It carefully explains statistics, effects and mortality rates, be it gender or age. Each step is very clear and very easy to follow. The Pack Track, notes and defense mechanisms that are given to you in this book will help anyone kick the butts for good!!! Very easy reading and easy on the eyes. Step by step until you are smoke free is the success that comes with this book. Mr. Fisher and Mr. Koop did an outstanding job on this book. The alternatives and attitude changing methods toward smoking are simply superb. Realizations are met on all sides of quitting in this book. From the ones who have quit numerous times to the struggle of relaspes. This book has it all covered. Hypnosis, gum, patches, fading, or whatever method exists, is clearly explained and can be tailored to suit anyone's need on any level!!!

I'm 21. Started smoking at 15. Well, i can finally say "NO" every time a friend offers me a ciggy! I was smoking atleast two packs a day. I also had so many psychological dependancies on this global killer. I smoked when i was happy, sad, or just when i felt bored. I guess i smoked the most when the going got tough, especially in college when the work got unbearable. People this book.."7 steps to a smoke free life" is definitely effective when wanting to educate yourself on the dangers and rewards of quitting smoking. It took me exactly 1 month to break off the habit! And every time i feel like slipping up, this book ,as a reference, just convinces me otherwise. Take my word for it.I definitly recommend it. Thanks to the American Lung Association!!
