Genre: Self-Help
~
We all have undesired addictions we want to let go of. We try and try, but end up failing again and again. But what if the only reason we are going in endless circles of failure is the method we use to let go? Imagine you have access to an effective manual full of mental and practical exercises, the manual that's gonna help you get rid of your bad habits. Who says we don't have one? Now we do . . .

It's the book that changes the chemical reactions in your brain by reprogramming it. It will cause you to let go of whatever harms you spontaneously, just like taking a course of medicine to let you eventually quit your bad habits effortlessly, and, most importantly, enjoyably. It works very effectively, as this book contains a real story for a specific method with defined exercises and calculated steps. The method has been applied to several people, and it cured them completely.

EXCLUSIVE EXCERPT:
Determination and Willpower are Deadly Enemies

Now that we have spent some words and lines together, you know me better. You know that I previously tried many times to quit my smoking habit, and I failed just like you or like the many people you know. Do you think that our failure was due to lack of determination? Or maybe it is because we are not strong-willed people?

Neither. In fact, will and determination can be deadly weapons working against you and not by your side if they are wrongly loaded and badly directed. Determination and will, when used naively and without the appropriate information, will push you to mess up because they are empty attempts that lack the solid background, the required knowledge, and the right planning to help you reach success.

Thus, failure would be a normal result for most empty attempts that begin chaotically. The process of quitting addiction is a change process which needs management and needs to take place accurately and in a planned fashion, not in chaos.

Radical change cannot happen overnight. The doctor wouldn’t hold his scalpel and do a surgery just because he has the desire and the will to save someone’s life. Rather, he must first go through many years of study, practice, and preparation to make him ready for the moment when he has to deal with a living human being.

Will, desire, and determination are great things, but they’re worthless without the required information and skills. When our first child, Karam, was born, we had a visit from one of our relatives. She was a great and lovely old person. She insisted that she wanted to “salt” Karam—an ancient social tradition in which the body of a newborn baby is rubbed with salt and oil to sterilize the baby’s skin. We had a very long discussion about that, and eventually our relative won the sparring and she did “salt” him. An hour later, he looked upset and he was feeling uneasy. He suddenly started crying and we ended up at the doctor clinic. We realized that Karam was dehydrated because the salting process made the skin suck in all the salt, which increased the sodium or natural salts in his body and in his blood. This caused him to lose a huge amount of water from his body. However, our relative is a lovely and great person and she has the desire to help people and a strong will—so strong that she convinced us to do this process of salting. Unfortunately, she lacked the scientific knowledge required to ensure this was a safe process. The desire and the strong will are worthless without supporting them with knowledge. On the contrary, desire and will are great qualities when they are boosted by the required knowledge and skill.
