You tried everything, right?
But it didn’t work for you, and you smell like rotting flesh, and your self-esteem is in the toilet.
Is that about it?
It helps to have a buddy!
But not just anyone.
It’s got to be someone who gets it.
Someone who’s been there and knows first-hand.
Meet Pam Young!
My FINAL Quit is a friend who understands how hard it is to quit. Told with raw emotion and humor, Young shares her journal from the first toke to last and the realization that busting her addiction was really her soul’s journey to discover her Self. Written for both smokers and non-smokers, My Final Quit offers invaluable insights, useful tools, and great encouragement.
What readers say:
Judy, from Freeport, TX: Your book came and I found myself on page 60 before I knew it! It was like talking to you — REAL feeling expressed in a conversational manner and very informative to this non-smoker! It has to be a winner to capture the attention of a non-smoker!… Love your book!!! I’ve told so many people about it! Even for a non-smoker, it’s informative and a fun read! I’ve laughed and laughed as well as reflected on a number of things you wrote about! You really have the gift of communicating — so glad that you are sharing your interesting thoughts, knowledge, and sense of humor with the rest of us!
Martha, from Omaha, NB: I loved the book – in fact, the expression “ate it up with a spoon” came to mind when I first finished it. It is captivating, real, and lacking the standard tone of self-righteous “quitter zeal.
“Closet smoker” from Houston, TX: Pam, it is nearly 3 months now…and no lapses, thanks to reading your book. It is hard to explain why the temptation to light up is still a daily challenge, especially in my car driving to Houston. When the craving comes, I think of your journal and just take a few deep breaths. Your experience and your title provide help to remind me that this is my FINAL quit! Thanks again.

Mimi Scott (Mancos, Co. USA) – This review is for: My FINAL Quit: How I quit smoking and broke a 40-year addiction (Paperback)
If you have ever tried to quit smoking or any other addiction, and wished you had a friend to understand what you are going through and support you, now you have one in Pam Young and her compelling book, My Final Quit: How I Quit Smoking and Broke a 40-year Addiction, Pam details with honesty and with humor the trials of stopping the smoking habit/addiction. Each chapter begins with salient quotes from famous people pertaining to the topic at hand. A couple of my favorites: “If at first you don’t succeed, you are about average” by M. H. Alderson, and Sir Winston Churchill: “Success is the ability to go from failure to failure without losing your enthusiasm”.
What the author details is not only about stopping a self-defeating addiction, but also about the spiritual journey to an expanded understanding of who she really is beyond roles and stereotypes. This book contains many ways to become your own best friend written with wisdom and wit so that it never becomes tedious or preachy.
I find the last two chapters particularly valuable sources of information– e.g. the use of amino acids and nutritional supplements to balance the body chemistry, as well as practical steps to take to prepare yourself before you embark upon your own final quit. Much of it Pam learned the hard way, and she offers what she learned at the very beginning of your journey. She shares the guidance she received in some detail as well as in a comprehensive List of References from such as Felicia Drury Klimmet’s Eat Right for Your Metabolism, Julia Ross’s The Diet Cure, and Terry Rustin’s Keep Quit-A Motivational Guide to a Life Without Smoking. She also shares online resources for help to quit your addictions. If you read this book and take her advice, the way will be made easier for you too, to quit smoking and have a happier, healthy, and more rewarding life.
