I used to run a company that taught 1000's of Portlanders to stop smoking using a combination of powerful techniques based on rational emotive therapy and cognitive restructuring. I myself used this program 15 years ago to deal with my own 20-year addiction to nicotine. The program used to be offered through every major medical center here in Portland and was known by the names BreatheFree and/or ASPIRE.
Unfortunately we closed in 1998 when the government allowed the pharmaceutical companies to sell nicotine patches and gum as a treatment for nicotine addiction. This makes about as much sense as treating heroin addiction with heroin gum or patches.
I am willing to help you if you want to stop smoking. The approach is simple and effective. It is 180 degrees different than any other program or technique out there and is designed to deal with NICOTINE ADDICTION.
I won't charge a dime for my assistance but I will ask you to contribute the money you save NOT smoking, for 3 to 12 months, to Indymedia or any other Portland area non-profit.
You must call me BEFORE you stop smoking. Don't call me in the midst of withdrawal. The techniques I teach will help you get through withdrawal easily and effectively.
