Help Yourself or Someone You Love Quit Smoking the T'ai Chi Way is a 3-stage program (pre-Quitting, Quitting, and post-Quitting) for the unready, the stubborn, and the scared. Emphasis is on severing the smoker's emotional link with tobacco by preparing the unready, persuading the stubborn, and calming the fears of the apprehensive. T'ai Chi is a very old Chinese method of reducing stress and maintaining health. Now the magic and mystery of this ancient art can be used to help the 45 million American smokers overcome their addiction to this paralyzing habit. The program has more exercises and strategies than similar systems. It contains video links to show you how to do the t'ai chi exercises which makes quitting easier. These practical exercises enable the reader to feel the internal energy that the Chinese call chi. This energy, and the ideas behind it, can unlock the door to freedom, better health, and happiness.
