This delightfully illustrated book relies on a whole range of strategies for breaking the smoking habit with resources gleaned from NLP and hypnosis developed through the authors' experience of twenty-five years in general practice. The authors empower their readers to take heart and believe in themselves and in their ability to quit. Using visualisations, sage advice, understanding and large doses of encouragement, they not only explain why we become addicted to smoking, but also show us the best techniques for giving it up, and how to handle stress levels that develop along the way.
For those who really want to give up smoking for good – here's a small book with a large mission to show you how!
