Yes! You Can Stop Smoking
Even If You Don't Want toeBook - 2012
This is an advanced textbook for people who have been unable to stop smoking. It covers motivation to stop smoking, healthy coping skills and the ability not to smoke. I wrote the book, Yes! You Can Stop Smoking, because after working in treatment centers for years I saw drug addicts and alcoholics relapse again and again. Some addiction counselors resisted treating smokers for nicotine addiction. This is because the counselors had no training and no material for treating nicotine addicts. They lacked the knowledge that smoking is a major contributor to relapse for alcoholism and drug addiction. I wanted to cause a change, so I educated myself on nicotine addiction with what was available. I also, along with my experience and training treating other addictions, I developed an inpatient program to treat smokers. Yes! You Can Stop Smoking is the center piece in the inpatient program. I have over twenty years' experience working with addictions, specializing in nicotine addiction. Originally, there was no creditable treatment information available during that time, so I became driven to write this book to fill the gap. I spent hundreds of hours putting it down on paper. I sold thousands of hard copies to treatment centers, health departments, individuals and even the U.S. Congress ordered forty books. Two compliments that stand out for me are: A client stated, "The book helped me because obviously, you have lived what you have written. I feel like you were talking directly to me." The other statement was from a professional who stated: "David Jones is "the expert" in the field of treating nicotine addiction."
