Can you imagine taking on the identity of a non-smoker?
Can you imagine yourself actually saying ‘I am a non-smoker’?
With all of the bad press given to smoking in recent years, what with pictures of diseased
organs on cigarette packets, banning it from public places, and more recently keeping
cigarettes locked from view behind the counter in supermarkets, the message is slowly
getting across that it is BAD FOR YOUR HEALTH!! It kills, it harms your baby whilst pregnant
and is generally bad for everyone around you.
It is also argued that it’s pretty bad for your taste buds, and ensures that you will always
smell pretty bad to the non-smoker. I once heard a non-smoker describe the sensation of
kissing a smoker as being very similar to that of ‘licking an ashtray’ (no joke, although I was

to stop smoking for a day I could claim that as a ‘success’ right? However, a real success
would be if you were still a non-smoker after a year, or after two years or even TEN YEARS!!
Sadly this kind of data is difficult to acquire as we can never really know whether our
client’s decide to start up again after a few months or a year (although be warned, I will be
The true success though, does indeed rest in the abstention rate - that is, how long you
successfully stop for.
With everything I have just said in mind, what I do not do is quote a cure rate. However,
what I do offer is my commitment to the cause (fuelled largely by my ex-smoker now non-
smoker new lease of life passion), and assurance that I will be with you every step of the
way for support.
You can be confident that I will unleash every tool in my arsenal to help you kick the habit!
If you are 100% committed to the process you will stop smoking.
