Hi, welcome to Bookey. Today we’ll unlock Allen Carr's The Easy Way to Stop Smoking. Reports from the World Health Organization show that smoking harms the human body in many different ways. Smoke generated by burning tobacco contains more than a thousand harmful substances, including at least 250 carcinogens and other toxic substances. Smoking severely damages the respiratory system, cardiovascular system, nervous system, digestive system and reproductive system. Millions of people die because of smoking every year around the world. Moreover, the damage from secondhand smoke is no less than active smoking. It is especially harmful to children and teenagers. It can cause asthma in children and sudden infant death syndrome, and it can also worsen tracheitis and pneumonia. As smoking is so harmful, smokers who care about their health will start to make an effort to quit. However, quitting smoking seems to be one of the hardest things in the world. Whether you smoke or not, you must know someone who does, be it in your family, or among your circle of friends and co-workers. Many of them must have tried to quit, but they just can’t manage to come through. They may have even tried several times but still fail to give up smoking. Smokers understand that smoking damages their bodies. They cough constantly; their skin condition gets worse; their blood pressure gets higher; they develop lung diseases and even die of lung cancer. But still, many comfort themselves with the following thoughts: Aren't there many who smoke but still live a long life? I'm not that unlucky! I know smoking is not good, but aren't car emissions more harmful? They damage my lungs even more seriously than smoking! Not to mention, there are so many commercials, movies, co-workers and relatives around me that tell me: “It’s okay to smoke.” “Taking a smoke break with colleagues is so enjoyable.” “It makes you more attractive, more manly.” “How come you don't smoke?” Well, living in such an environment that reminds one of smoking constantly, one can hardly resist smoking, and one who smokes can hardly stop it for good. Many people are of two minds about smoking. They feel guilty when they smoke, knowing it's not right, but when they are not smoking, they find it unbearable and too hard to resist the temptation. So, what makes stopping smoking so hard exactly? How can one give up smoking for good? Allen Carr, the author of this book, had smoked for 33 years, he once smoked 100 cigarettes in a day, and he had claimed that he would rather die if he couldn’t smoke. After dozens of attempts to stop, he finally found an easy way to stop smoking. He tells us that the main reason why it is difficult to stop is because smokers have fears deep inside their hearts. Only by overcoming these fears can one quit. Next, let’s find out the easy, fast, and effective way to quit smoking in three parts. Part 1: Why do we smoke? Part 2: Why do conventional methods of stopping always fail? Part 3: How to easily quit?
I like that app. Works fine and very convenient to read the text
So far the best reader that I've tried. I gave it a 4 star rating because I would really appreciate if dictionary feature would be available. Overall it is pretty good.
Great design and the settings have everything needed in an e-reader.
Really good reader. The only issue I've had is that the colour randomly goes from dark mode to sepia and I can't figure out why. Otherwise awesome.
