This is a series of three letters I received from a lady who used my book to help her quit. I met her when she interviewed me for a radio program she was producing. I gave her a copy of my book to prepare for the interview and this is what happened:
Holding strong here, 51 days and $510 later. Every now and then I am surprised by an urge, but I refuse to ever act on it. Still SO happy not to be a smoker!!
You definitely helped me (saved $590 as of today!) and like you said, I can’t believe it took me so long!! I can’t imagine how I could have liked sucking in poison like that. ETC, ETC, ETC….you know what I’m talking about–you said it would be this way. You and your book are what made the difference for me.
Yesterday was my 100th day with no cigs, which translates to $1,000!!!! I’m still feeling so great about quitting.
Thanks again, Bee”
These are letters from former smokers who used my technique to help them quit.
You don’t know me. I’m a singing teacher and I tell all my “smoking” students about your book.
I smoked age 17-47 (I’m 55 years old now). Your book was so helpful to get me to quit. I tried 13 times the year before.
I should have written much sooner to say thank you. But I keep my copy of your book on hand in my home studio. I show it to students to help them plant the seed to quit. I never preach.
It was killing me and it’s a powerful drug. Imagine a singer who smokes. I think that was one of the obstacles to my success.
I estimated it cost me approx… $52,000 – maybe more including what I gave away.
Thanks so much for this great book!
Quitting was hard. The only things that were harder were the accommodations that I made in my life to sustain my addiction. I had tried all of the ‘over the counter’ remedies but realized quickly that they don’t work and I couldn’t do it all by myself. I needed help.
Your book was the only support I felt I had and the best thing was, it didn’t judge me and scold me when I failed, but was there for me anytime I chose to pick it up. I stopped many times. We all have. I can thank you and your dog eared book now because I have been smoke free for 2 years.
I sleep with your book under my bed. Don’t tell anyone ok?
When we first met and began speaking about the possibility of quitting smoking I never thought that over a year later I would be smoke free.
Reading your book was truly inspirational. Over the 15 years I smoked, I tried every pill, gum, and laser treatment and many other failures to quit. You talked me into trying one day at a time.
I remember in the 4th week after quitting (cold turkey) I was having a real tough time. I reread your book that week and haven’t had a craving since.
Thanks so much Brian. I owe you.
All the best.
