Are you addicted to Nicotine? Have you attended a smoking cessation program that gave you a good education on tobacco and focused on the cigarette? It's time to try a very different approach to smoking cessation. 'I Don't Smoke!' is about a proven plan that focuses on you--not the nicotine. It's an approach that looks at quitting as a joyous adventure. After all, you're going to be free of a serious addiction--it's like overthrowing a dictator. If you are one of the 47.7 million adult smokers in the United States, chances are you have wanted to--and have tried to--quit smoking. Eighty percent of adult smokers want to quit completely, according to a survey by Gallup and the National Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. But the nicotine in cigarettes is an addictive drug that can make quitting difficult . . . but not impossible. Now from Dr. Joseph Cruse, founding medical director of the Betty Ford Center, comes a program that applies addiction recovery techniques and includes the importance of feelings and increased self-worth. If you want to quit smoking, you can laugh and feel good while you are freeing yourself from your addiction. Using powerful and positive affirmations, retraining your brain, and calling in a virtual army of support from others, this program makes smoking cessation a lifechanging and joyous adventure! There are millions of former smokers who have recovered from their addiction to nicotine. Millions who can now boast, 'I don't smoke!'--and mean it. Take the first step and join them today.
