KIRKUS REVIEW

If you enjoy two or more of the cigarettes you smoke in a day, you're probably not ready to quit, says the author of this, the best how-to-stop book we've read in some time. First, change your view of yourself. Most people use cigarettes to make up for imagined or real inadequacies: to make a train arrive, to reward yourself for a job well done; to console yourself for a failure. Once you recognize that that won't work, then it's important to understand the physiological tricks that nicotine plays on your system. It robs the system of vitamin C, for example, and provides a lift when blood sugar levels drop. Rogers claims that a small protein snack will raise the blood sugar level and allay the need to smoke a little. From the founder of SmokEnders, a program that has purportedly stopped more people from smoking than any other. Sounds like it just might work.
