How do I give up smoking?

I am a single parent with two children, aged 12 and 2. Both are very intelligent, and also demanding! Sometimes I get really stressed out. When I try to give up smoking, I end up snapping at my son, which I hate. Smoking is something I have given up and then restarted several times when I have had problems in my life. I want to kill this habit once and for all. Thank you in advance for any help you can give me.

    Just quit. My husband quit about a week ago. He just came home from work, said I quit smoking today, and hasn’t touched one since. He used Nicorette gum the first couple day, now he chews regular gum. I know it’s hard, but if he can do it, so can you. (He’s been smoking since he was 14.) Just think how much healthier you will be and in better shape to play with your kids. Plus, you are setting a bad example for your kids by smoking. By having a parent that smokes, they are twice as likely to smoke themselves.

    This method works for me and is the only money back guaranteed.
    I quite smoking 2 years ago

    Get the Facts
    Easyway, founded by Allen Carr in 1983, has the highest independently verified 12-month success rate (75.8% for a smoker completing the program) of any quit smoking technique and a 90% satisfaction rating.

    Compare Easyway to other methods and see for yourself why Easyway is called “The Cadillac of quit smoking methods.”

    The Allen Carr Method
    HOW THE METHOD WORKS

    Using psychotherapy, the method works in the opposite way to the “willpower” method. It does not concentrate on the reasons the smoker should not smoke : the money, the slavery, the health risks and the stigma. Smokers know all that already. Instead it focuses on why smokers continue to smoke in spite of the obvious disadvantages.

    It is fear that keeps smokers hooked!

    Fear the smoker will have to give up their pleasure or crutch. Fear the smoker will be unable to enjoy life or handle stress. Fear the smoker will have to go through an awful trauma to get free. Fear the smoker will never get completely free from the craving.

    The Method removes these fears
    Smokers quit with the Allen Carr Method as happy non-smokers, not feeling deprived but with a huge sense of relief and elation that they have finally achieved what they always wanted….

    TO BE FREE!

    What about the terrible withdrawal pangs from nicotine?

    The physical withdrawal from nicotine is so slight that most smokers don’t realise that they are addicts. What smokers suffer when they try and quit using other methods is the misery and depression caused by the belief that they are being deprived of a pleasure or a crutch.

    The Allen Carr Method removes this feeling of deprivation.
    It removes the need and desire to smoke. Once the smoker is in the right frame of mind and they follow the simple instructions, the physical withdrawal from nicotine is hardly noticeable.

    No Gimmicks!

    The Method does not use any gimmicks, useless aids or substitutes. No nicotine gum, patches, lozenges, tabs, inhilators or nasal sprays! No needles! No lasers! No drugs! No herbs! No shock treatment!

    The Allen Carr Method is successful because:

    It removes the smokers’ conflict of will.
    There are no bad withdrawal pangs.
    It is instantaneous and easy.
    It is equally effective for long-term heavy smokers and light smokers.
    You need not gain weight.
    You will not miss smoking.

    Medical Endorsements

    A personal view from Professor Judith Mackay MBE, JP, FRCO (Edin), FRCP (Lon), World Health Organisation Advisory Panel on Tobacco and Health

    “I have no hesitation in supporting Allen Carr’s work. Many clinics use some of his techniques but it would appear that few do it in quite such a successful package.”

    Carole Johnson, Coronary Heart Disease Prevention Unit, Tyne Tees

    “his success rate was such that, when budgets allow, we continue to use Easyway for work with specific groups and individuals.”

    Dr Anil Visa BSc, MBBch., FRCA, Consultant – Royal Hospitals NHS Trust – Royal London Hospital

    “I have observed the Allen Carr method at first hand and have found it to be very successful and I wholeheartedly support it as an effective way to quit smoking.”

    Dr William Green, Head of Psychiatric Dept, Matilda Hospital, Hong Kong

    “It is a remarkable fact that Allen Carr, on his own admission a non-professional in behaviour modification, should have succeeded where countless psychologists and psychiatrists holding postgraduate qualifications have failed, in formulating a simple and effective way to stop smoking.”

    Dr Martin Jarvis, Principle Scientist, Imperial Cancer Research
    Fund and Reader in Health Psychology, University College London

    ”…I am more than happy to testify to Allen Carr’s enduring involvement and to recognise the value of the kind of behavioural and cognitive support he provides.”

    Dr PM Bray MB CH.b., MRCGP

    “I was really impressed by the method. In spite of the Allen Carr organisation’s success and fame, there were no gimmicks and the professional approach was something a GP could readily respect. I would be happy to give a medical endorsement of the method to anyone.”

    Celebrity Endorsements

    “His method is absolutely unique, removing the dependence on cigarettes, while you are actually smoking. I’m pleased to say it has worked for many of my friends and staff.”
    Sir Richard Branson

    “Some friends of mine who had stopped using Allen Carr’s method suggested I tried it. I did. It was such a revelation that instantly I was freed from my addiction. Like those friends of mine, I found it not only easy but unbelievably enjoyable to stay stopped.”
    Sir Anthony Hopkins

    GOOD LUCK!
