In Stop smoking they reveal tips and advice on every topic to do with breaking the habit, from how to stop the chain reaction of 'I've had one, why not have another..', to exploring alternative therapies to help you quit, via ideas for keeping yourself busy to beat the cravings and ways to de-stress your life after you’ve given up. Most importantly of all, this book never belittles the scale of the battle you'll fight as you quit, and with its collection of tips, ideas, advice and information you'll be well armed to win. It won't be easy, but with help and support, you can do it!
