Quotes from the book:
"Why do human beings acquire bad habits so easily? ... The white man and the red man came face to face at a crucial juncture in history, and the first thing they did was exchange vices (.. tobacco vs. alcohol ..)."
"You can break your habits and overcome your addictions. I know, because I have done it, and others, just like you, have done it. All you need is a desire to quit; this book will show you how.
It will also reveal how you can build your health more certainly and more easily than you ever dreamed possible. And perhaps most important, it aims to shatter some delusions and falsehoods about health that hold most people captive throughout their lives. Get ready for some challenging ideas!"
"More than alcohol, more than tobacco, more than coffee, food addictions are the hardest ones to break. In fact, your battle with food may well be a lifelong struggle."
"The Anonymous program starts with the premise that the addict is powerless to stop. He cannot do it himself. ... Granted, it is sometimes true. But it is not always true, and a lot of people do not want to think that way. They want to believe that they can conquer their addictions themselves.
On their own power they want to struggle against their addictions and win."
"What the Quit for Good Program does is give you a way to feel good about yourself while you are in the process of effecting change. It provides an effective, yet flexible framework. All you have to do is play by the rules. You don't have to be perfect."
