Tips on how to stop smoking, drinking, gambling and drugs, by Sheldon Kaplan
|If you are looking for help to control a bad habit and make a fresh
start, you've found it. This method will definitely work for people who have the integrity
to make a sincere commitment and keep it.
Although there was a bit of humor intended in the title and cover illustration, the subject matter of this book is very serious and must not be taken lightly.
There are thousands of programs around to help drug addicts, alcoholics, cigarette smokers and problem gamblers. They all have their places and they do help.
The most popular program for an alcoholic is Alcoholics Anonymous, and for problem gamblers, there is Gamblers Anonymous. Smokers who want to quit can use many products, including Nicorette, Nicotrol & Nicoderm CQ, which can be found in your local drug store. Using the Cold Turkey Method will only help add to the success rate of all people who sincerely want to quit. To those of you who are severely addicted to drugs or alcohol, I would recommend contacting your family physician, a de-tox program or hospitalization; otherwise this book can be utilized for self-treatment of addictive habits.
|I've included gambling with smoking, drinking and using drugs as I
believe that the addiction is similar, only with respect to its psychological aspect. This
method is very effective with gambling addiction as there is no physical addictive
substance introduced into the body, and therefore no physical withdrawal.
The statistics are too numerous to list in regard to gambling's destructiveness.
I can only stress that if you are seriously addicted to either smoking, drinking, abusing drugs or gambling they will only lead to 5 paths: Jail, Bankruptcy, A Broken Family, Disease or Death.
|This method combines the best of Eastern philosophical thought with common Western street sense. It's unique, simple, very inexpensive (the cost of this book) and only requires a few basic things: your memory; your written commitment; and a witness (preferably a close relative or a very good friend) someone who you hold in high esteem and that you wouldn't break your word to.
