I dropped the topic of quitting smoking a bit, although there were still quite a few articles in the plans, from informative to based on personal experience. In the fall of 2017, it will be three years since I stopped smoking, which is probably why I stopped remembering this habit, although in the first months the desire to share the greatest joy did not leave me. In general, I decided to finish the job I started, especially since there will soon be new cycles about health and self-development. I have already achieved something, I will achieve something in parallel with the readers. I really hope that in recent years I have begun to write a little better, which means that this and other articles will be seen by people who will find them useful.

Why Buy Allen Carr's Book
I have come across a theory that no smoking cessation method works until you pay for it. Here a subconscious trigger, hammered in as a child, is triggered, according to which nothing is given for free and for free, for example, the principle of the proverb "you can't easily pull a fish out of a pond. "It is very possible that I, like many others, were once exposed to this effect, because the first time I was given the book "Easy way to quit smoking" friends who wanted to help, respectively, I did not see any effect from the book. In the same way, the pills, with which at least half of the former smokers quit, did not work in due time, because the first pack I also got for free. As a result, the process of quitting smoking dragged on for five long years from 2009 to 2014. However, I will tell my story another time.
Among other things, as a legal blogger who advocates for compliance with the law and for the principle of "start with yourself, " just not ready to give advice on theft. On the other hand, I believe that any work after the death of the author should become the property of the public. So decide for yourself, the main thing is not to read online. Most likely, one reading of the book will not be enough, so it is always good to have it on hand for every new attempt.
For example, it took me three whole readings, the last one was rather a distraction from the desire to smoke, but extremely effective. I read that you can smoke at any moment, I had a pack of cigarettes against all the advice, I knew that I could give up my plans at any moment, the stronger and more assurances I became in my desire to give up tobacco. My affirmations and my motivations worked, and Allen Carr's downloaded for pennies book "An easy way to quit smoking" worked. Even if the method was not the easiest, the goal was achieved and the next step was taken.
