While there are hundreds of quit smoking books, only one was cited by the U.S. Surgeon General in his 700 page 2020 report entitled "Smoking Cessation: A Report of the Surgeon General" "Polito JR. Freedom from Nicotine: The Journey Home, 2013." Why? Because the Surgeon General had no choice but to at last acknowledge two critical quitting facts: that real-world performance of approved quitting products has been a disaster, and that most successful quitters succeed by going cold turkey. Sharing hundreds of nicotine dependency recovery insights, this book is about their method. Looking for the "Easy Way to Stop Smoking," vaping, chewing or dipping? Wish you could succeed and "Never Take Another Puff," vape, dip or chew? Although "Freedom from Nicotine - The Journey Home" was not written by the late Allen Carr or Joel Spitzer, it certainly could have been. The common thread between all three books is the message that coming home is vastly more do-able, and far more wonderful than the user's frightened, misguided and enslaved mind believes. It wasn't that we couldn't quit and stay free, but that we hadn't yet discovered how. Freedom from Nicotine - The Journey Home was written by John R. Polito, a former 3 pack-a-day smoker, and the 1999 founder of the popular quitting site, and director of Turkeyville, Facebook's 13,000+ member cold turkey quit smoking support group. Chicago's Joel Spitzer, John's 20-year mentor, is arguably the most studied smoking cessation counselor alive. Joel's lessons are shared at WhyQuit and provide the foundation for this book. Having taught cessation full-time for nearly 50 years, Joel has written hundreds of quit smoking articles, produced nearly 500 video quitting lessons, and presented more than 100 two-week, six-session quitting clinics. Amazingly, Joel was teaching that an inability to stop inhaling nicotine was an addiction while the Surgeon General was still calling it a habit. Like John, Allen Carr discovered the "easy way" the hard way. Allen's final book was called "Scandal." Written the week he was diagnosed with lung cancer, in it, he states, "I read an interesting article in the British Medical Journal recently by someone not on the payroll of the pharmaceutical industry. It caught my eye because it was entitled: 'The NRT cessation charade continues.' The author is an American called John Polito who works as a nicotine cessation educator, which means he is honest about trying to stop the source of the addiction, rather than maintain it." Educate your natural instincts. Live the magic of becoming far smarter and wiser than nicotine's grip upon your brain. Discover why knowledge isn't just power but a quitting method. Just one lesson and step at a time, yes you can.
