Book Reviews of Ceasing Smoking Books

By: scubaman
Anywhere you buy books online you can generally benefit from customer ratings, reviews, testimonials, recommendations, and other kinds of feedback not traditionally accessible as part of the book buying experience. While professional book reviews are informative, it can be especially helpful to know what other readers have to say, especially in self-help formats such as advice on quitting smoking.

Books or authors may also have accompanying websites where you can go for further information, making it possible to follow up on ideas you have found particularly helpful. In some cases, where a book gains tremendous popularity, discussion groups are formed, providing another way for readers to share their experiences. There are many different books, recordings, and kits available on how to quit smoking, written by physicians, former smokers, and non-smoking advocacy agencies and organizations.

Topics are as general or specific as you want, including such areas as:

- Stop smoking for women
- Stop smoking for men
- Hypnosis
- Natural remedies
- Stop smoking in a certain amount of time (i.e. 3 days/21days/50 days)
- Help a loved one stop smoking
- Using religion to help you stop smoking
- How to stop smoking without gaining weight

Online bookstores are searchable by category or author, and often automatically recommend similar books to the ones you are browsing, so you can easily get an idea of what is popular. Descriptions, excerpts and customer feedback will help you determine if a particular book is of interest to you, and allow you to compare some of the many books available. Whether you are looking up a specific book that you have already heard of, or discovering something new, there are books on every kind of approach to quitting smoking.

Doing some reading ahead of time, as well as throughout your quitting process, will help you understand the behavioral, psychological, and physical components of your addiction and how to overcome these. Learning how to change your thinking about cigarettes is an essential element of quitting successfully, and numerous books are available to help you do just that. Try to find an author who writes in a style that you find easy and enjoyable to read, and allow yourself to benefit from the wisdom and experience of others who have made this journey.

Because everyone's experience of stopping smoking is different, it is important that you customize your quitting plan to meet your own unique needs and preferences. Look for books that appeal to you - whether you want a more medical, humorous, or spiritual approach, and so on. If you are not a big reader, remember many audio resources are also available, so choose the tools that are most likely to work for you.
