I succeeded beyond my wildest dreams---i know just because it worked for me does not guarrantee it will work for everyone----but it is not expensive and it truly is a NEW WAY OF QUITTING and worth the price of the book.
It may not work the first time you read the book - it's not a magic pill, but if you read it over and give it the space to work for you, your giving up will be pain free and without drama. Good luck!
The problem I have with this book is that the author rags on hypnosis, saying that it's a waste of money. He later writes that he won't be using hypnosis to help people quit smoking, because it's not needed.
The truth is, he uses hypnotic techniques throughout the book. It's a masterpiece of building expectation and applying metaphor. His approach culminates with directing the reader through a series of visualizations that use metaphor and future pacing to communicate the message to the unconscious mind--that's self-hypnosis, plain and simple.
Perhaps Casey doesn't realize what he's doing, or perhaps he's trying to avoid the wrongful stigma that hypnosis carries with the uninformed. In any case, he's proven Hazlerig's Law once again: "The more someone rails against hypnosis, the greater the chance that they're using it."
That said, the book does contain methods that are effective in helping some smokers to quit.
