'How can a book help me to quit? What I need is willpower!' 'How can a book avoid the terrible withdrawal pangs?' In addition to these pessimistic comments, I had my own doubts.

We regard it as our failure, we failed to convince those smokers just how easy and enjoyable it is to quit. I dedicated the first edition to the smokers that I had failed to cure. That failure rate was based on the money-hack guarantee that we give at our clinics. The average current failure rate of our clinics world-wide is under 5 per cent. That means a success rate of over 95 per cent, Although I was aware that I had discovered something marvelous, I never in my wildest dreams expected to achieve such rates. You might well argue that if I genuinely believed that I would cure the world of smoking, I must have expected to achieve 100 per cent. No, I never ever expected to achieve 100 per cent.
