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.
