Complete Quit System


The Complete Quit System is my own proprietary smoking cessation program.  It’s a step-by-step method for quitting that focusses primarily on dealing with the psychological issues around smoking.  (It also deals with the physical addiction to nicotine, but in my experience, that’s really the easier of the two aspects to overcome.)

It’s not free – after all, I have to earn money somewhere so I can provide all the information in this blog and the Quit Smoking Advisor site for free, right?  But I did pour my heart and soul into making it the best home-based program I possibly could, and I don’t think you’ll find another program that deals with the psychological aspects of quitting nearly as effectively.  If it works for you, it’s a bargain at twice the price.

    I have been smoking for at least 40 years and have tried all the nicotine products. Just when I thought I would never quit I asked my doctor about Chantix..She said it would be good for me considering that I suffer from Anxiety and depression. I felt wonderful on it and had little to no side effects until I finished the program and felt just as I had before I started it…THe nicotine was out of my system but the psychological still had to be dealt with….I gave in to temptation and am smoking again and feel guilty doing so after all that money and effort. I don’t know what I can do now except go cold turkey and that would be very hard for me to do.

    Hi Debbie
    I picked up a script for Chantix yesterday and felt inspired by your e-mail that it could work for me as I believe the physical aspect is what gets me the most,,for you I was thinking for you to try to journal and join a cessation group for women- There was something going on for you when you started,why you lit up in the first place and that may be what is keeping you hooked-I believe it is key for women to indulge in what makes them happy on a creative level and to take the time-Underneath it all it seems we have to understand we are worth it– self-worth as a coaching lady once told me–is where women fall short-and there are a trillion examples to support this from putting up with an abusive partner to putting our needs and desires last etc etc,
    I feel sympathy for you cuz you say you feel guilty now and that makes you light up even more-I suggest for you to look closely at the guilt aspect-I get this and feel this way when I see my teeth or think about my lungs-guilt is a wasted emotion and serves no purpose I figure
    You did quit for a time and I salute you-as Debbie says quitting is a process and I think you are well on your way,
    thanks for your posting-

    Yes indeed – quitting IS a process, for sure. And as I’m sure you know, most people have to try to quit more than once before it works out. If you can learn something about yourself and your habit every time you try to quit, you can think of that attempt as ‘practice’ rather than a failure if you don’t stay quit for good.

    Debbie, if Chantix ‘worked’ for you for awhile, consider trying it again, but this time put it with a program or process that will help you get rid of the psychological aspects, too. Obviously, I think my Complete Quit System is a good solution, but there are some other options out there, too – you could check out the American Lung Association’s free online program. (Click the resources tab above for a brief description of that one and other resources.)

    Whatever you do, don’t give up!

    I have the psychological addiction to smoking in the worst kind of way. I’m working crazy hard to finish my Master’s Degree and I can’t even think of stopping until I finish in January. Then I really have to learn to deal with this problem. I hope it’s not too late. I’m sixty-seven years old and have been smoking off and on all my life. It really makes me feel horrible and I want to live the rest of my life in as good health as possible. What make this program different than everything else I’ve tried? And, believe me, I’ve tried everything.

    The comments I’ve just read really hit home. I have had 2 long quit times both 10-12 years long. I’ve relapsed in January after my ex-husband passed away ( I had quilt) then quit with the help of Chantix for 5 months. I relapsed again in September. You see my husband smokes and he had cigarettes around and I was feeling depressed and I really tried to pick one up but….. Anyway I’d like to give this a try with the help of the patch. I think being connected to others will help.
