Préambule

, par patoo45

C’était en juin 2005, je fumais une dizaine de cigarettes brunes par jour et cela depuis 40 ans.
J’avais essayé l’acupuncture, les patchs. Bref je n’arrivais pas à m’arrêter et je continuais à fumer.
Une nouvelle méthode est parvenu à mes oreilles : "La Méthode simple pour en finir avec la cigarette" de Allen Carr.
Une méthode sans méthode sans substitut et qui explique pourquoi l’on trouve du plaisir à fumer. Au milieu du bouquin, j’avais déjà peur d’arrêter de fumer rien qu’à la première lecture. En effet, je voulais attendre le retour des vacances pour ne pas stresser ma petite famille.

Donc en septembre, la première semaine, je relis posément le bouquin et j’enchaine sur un arrêt brutal.
Une décision : plus jamais. Et cela a été ma seule volonté.
Une autre pensée m’a aidé : tu veux fumer jusqu’à ta mort. En effet, tout fumeur pense qu’il s’arrêtera un jour.

En tout cas, à l’heure où j’écris cet article (19/10/2006), je ne fumes plus.
