Which How To Quit Smoking Book Is The Best?

By Dominic Wells

It is a difficult question to answer which how to quit smoking book is the best, because many people quit smoking using different methods. However, I think we can at least establish a basic criteria for the best, based on sales, success rate, testimonials, accessibility (how easy it is to understand), and practicality.

Books seem to be quite low down the pecking order in terms of favorite methods for quitting, yet in my experience they can offer something that other methods can’t. Time. It takes time to read any book, and this can be a great advantage as it allows the methodology to really sink into the brain and take hold. Quitting smoking isn’t something that can be done overnight, so it makes sense to take ones time in the buildup to quitting.

In terms of sales, and success rate, Allen Carr’s EasyWay to quit smoking tops the list, and has done for years. It was first published in 1985 and has been revised three times to make it even more successful. There have been over Nine Million copies sold worldwide and it has been translated into countless languages, boasting a very high success rate – 90%.

What appealed to me about this book was the fact that the author was aware of other methods, knew that they didn’t work in many cases, and took a completely different approach to quitting. Instead of saying why we should quit, he helps us understand why we continue in the first place, which makes quitting a lot easier. He also takes time to dispel many myths about smoking and nicotine addiction. Essentially, by the time you finish reading this book, you have already quit in your mind(although he suggests you keep smoking until you have finished the book).

Another popular book comes from Paul Mckenna and is titled “Quit Smoking Today Without Gaining Weight,” I didn’t personally use this book but it comes highly rated and deals with the fact that many people fear they will gain weight when they quit. He takes the time to explain why this happens in some people, and how to avoid it, as well as helping you quit in the first place.

Another book that has to be mentioned is Anthony Robbins’ ” Awaken The Giant Within ” – While it is a more generalized self-help book, it has a very good segment on smoking and if reading it can help you improve other aspects of your life too, then even better!

One thing that all three of these books have in common is that they take a psychological approach to quitting smoking and really get inside your head to help you change your ways. Allen Carr is the winner not only because of his sales, but because he actually used the method he recommends, and he focuses on quit smoking in his career, whereas the other two use psychology to improve all aspects of one’s life.
