I thought that I was the coolest kid in school and started smoking when I was 16. By the time I turned 18 I smoked a pack a day or more and kept up that habit for too many years.

I feel very fortunate that I was finally able to break free of this addiction on August 8, 2021 after reading Alan Carr’s book “The Easy Way to Stop Smoking”. I remain skeptical that this book did anything for me, but as I write this overview over two years later, I have still not had any nicotine and do not plan to ever smoke again.

It’s a shame it took this long, but I am glad that I never gave up.
