Most smokers who seriously quit then relapse back into smoking, do so long after defeating the chemical addiction to nicotine. In years of leading smoking cessation classes, I have met people who quit smoking for as long as twenty five years then fell back into the smoking trap after just one cigarette. These ex-smokers who haven’t put a cigarette to their lips for months or years somehow remained addicted not to the nicotine but to the behavior of smoking and to their attitudes that smoking is macho or cool, or sophisticated or stylish. Advertisers, movie stars, celebrities, friends, and sometimes our own families sold smoking to us since we were children. In the Ex-Smoker’s Companion I have tried to not only help smokers find the way out of the chemical addiction but also to rearrange their attitude toward smoking so that they won’t feel that they are missing anything good. Every page is a chapter in itself. Read a page each day or however you wish.
