The emotional and physical triggers that cause us to light up don't miraculously disappear when we decide to quit smoking. Indeed, when the nicotine patch isn't fooling you anymore and when you've chewed more gum than you can bear to recount, here are true stories from the front lines of the battle to counter inevitable cravings and avoid other smokers. Distracting, amusing, and inspiring, this book helps readers stick with the effort to kick the habbit! Misery loves company and sometimes the only advice we'll take is from someone who has already stood in our shoes. Whether it is about giving up smoking, trying to lose weight, or having in-laws move in for a month, the Staying Sane series provides readers with just this kind of been-there, done-that commiseration. Each Staying Sane volume is filled with sometimes humorous (laughter is the best medicine, after all!), sometimes inspiring but always sanity-saving success stories of how other people have overcome obstacles or have risen above the situations in question. Practical tips and coping strategies lighten the reader's load throughout. Bibliotherapy of the first order, the Staying Sane guides will support beleaguered readers as they strive to persevere through the duration of their particular challenge.
