What the Critics Say

"Having plugged into this with the pessimism I reserve for most self-help manuals... I was amazed to find myself feverishly making notes about the supplements I should be taking - tyrosine? Chromium? Magnesium ascorbate? - to make life without cigarettes bearable." (The Guardian)

Yet another great insight into the world of health! An insightful journey that shows the impacts of additction and how it effects the functionality of the human body and brain, how it responds and from that it can literally form our personality/spirit. Ive tried some of the suggested steps and will aim to do them all as already it seems that my outlook has literrally changed from I cant to I can!
Audible Books Brilliant! I love to listen the passion of the Patrick talking the talk of the walk he walks!

It works

Although the author is very easy to listen to if you are unfamiliar with nutritional supplements you will need to make notes or refer to the website where there are downloads. As the recording claims you can quit almost any addictive substance from sugar to crack cocaine by taking a handful of vitamins, amino acids, etc. that cost only about ?2 a day, it really has to be worth a try. Note the author stresses that severe drug and alcohol addiction does also require medical and group support. I've quit caffeine already after two weeks of following the program, something I've been trying to do for years. I have also noticed a big change in how I feel generally I think because as the book suggests the program is about normalising your brain chemistry, after which you can stop taking most of the supplements.
