Response 4: How I finally quit smoking.

I’d tried everything to quit over the years; patches, pills, even hypnotherapy – nothing worked. My mate Dan recommended the Quitters Inc clinic. “They have a 100% success rate” he proclaimed. I was intrigued and booked an appointment.

Dr Kessner revealed the secret to their success. “We’ll be watching you but you’ll never know when or where. If we catch you with a cigarette, bad things will happen.” He wouldn’t go into detail and I left sceptical but uneasy.

I held out til midnight. I crept into the garage and lit up in a dark corner. The next day I was summoned into the clinic. They had my cat in a cage. I watched as they electrocuted poor Jingles several times. “Next time, it’s your wife” they warned.

Kate left me a month later. The trauma proved too much for her.

I haven’t smoked a cigarette in over three years now.


  1. Could you imagine this? I'm not surprised this clinic has a 100% success rate.

  2. It is good to hear that you quit smoking. I also quit smoking, but I will take help from electronic cigarettes from that. Electronic cigarettes give me same feeling and experience of a real tobacco cigarette without any harmful effects on your health. At starting I face some problems. Best4ecigs-e cigarette starter kit helps me a lot to understand the product. It does not contain tobacco and not produce smoke so I enjoyed my quitting tobacco experience with that.
