Thank you for visiting Stop for Life – A Smoking Cessation Program.
My name is John Turco and it is my pleasure to be your guide.
You are about to learn unique practices and psychological techniques that you can successfully apply at any time and under any conditions or circumstances that will enable you to always be able to control your smoking choices.
As a 3 pack-a-day Smoker for 22 years, I found myself helplessly hooked on cigarettes. I tried everything to stop. Nothing worked. I tried substituting food (gained a ton of weight), cold turkey, behavior modification, recording and tracking my cigarette consumption, and even simply throwing my cigarettes in the trash, only to find myself buying another pack, usually within the hour.
I even tried the American Cancer Society program for several weeks. There were 14 people in my class. Only one person stopped (No, it wasn’t me), but he relapsed after less than a week. I thought “If the American Cancer Society can’t help me, who can ?” …. I was at the end of my rope.
Hooked and helpless and nowhere to turn.
One day in 1980, I met a man who taught me some very interesting psychological concepts. He taught me how to apply those concepts to my own smoking problem and I have not smoked a cigarette since that time.
I have organized these concepts and began to teach them as seminars. Student Graduates averaged about 10-12 per week. Over time, the number of graduates exceeded about 650 people. I had something that worked and could be duplicated, however, this needed to be shared and taken to the next level. I chose to do that in the form of a book and published those principles in the form of an instruction manual. It is my pleasure to share these successes with you.
WHY I WANT TO HELP PEOPLE
As an Ex-Smoker, I have come to realize all of the wonderful benefits from not smoking. Within a week of stopping, I found myself thinking “If I had known that stopping smoking felt so good, I would have done it long ago”.
But that was only the start. As time went on, more and more benefits began to appear, many of which I had never previously realized had been robbed from me by smoking.
As I began to share this solution to a deadly addiction, people were approaching me with incredible words of gratitude and encouragement to continue this work. I had enjoyed job satisfaction in the past, but never had I felt the incredible satisfaction of a job well done as I did at these moments. I want to continue to enjoy that feeling by helping as many smokers as I can.
THE GOAL OF MY SITE
It is my hope that as this program develops, I may be able to translate the book into many languages and share with as many people as possible. Research into the foreign markets has already begun.
