I am working on a book right now called "How I Quit" which will be a collection of 30-45 brief essays from former smokers on how they successfully quit smoking. Each interviewee will essentially write how they started smoking, the struggles they had over the years (health, failed attempts, etc.), ultimately how they overcame the addiction and end with tips/tricks that worked for them and, finally, how it has bettered their life. Each interviewee will be only identified by name (first name and last initial), and age.
This 'interview' will be more of a free-flowing article you will have written as if you were explain your story to a person for the first time, so can be done 100% by an email response.
1) Must have smoked at least 15 years.
2) Must have completely quit smoking at least 1 year as of today and off nicotine replacements as of one year today.
My goal is to show smokers struggling with this addicition different stories of people all in one place (this book) of people that have been there and that can offer them some encouragement.
If interested, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and give me a brief paragraph on your backstory (age, how long you smoked, how long you have been a non-smoker, etc.).
I will give each person a free copy of this book and full credits for their story.
