Stopping Smoking Successfully

Kelly Meister - January 27, 2010

Kelly Meister is an author who lives in Ohio. She smoked cigarettes for 25 years. Now, she has quit successfully.

“I smoked cigarettes for 25 years,” says Meister. “I tried to quit several times using various methods (for example nicotine inhaler, acupuncture, etc) before I was ultimately successful. I haven’t smoked a cigarette for eight years.”

Meister began smoking with her mother’s cigarettes when she was 12. A girlfriend taught her how to inhale when she was 14.

“I quit for good when I was 39 (I’m now 47). My method was a combination of three things: my then-boyfriend’s brother (who was my age) was diagnosed with lung cancer from smoking and died 7 months later. It struck me as obscene to continue smoking while this poor man was dying from lung cancer, so that was one motivation for quitting. My quitting method was using the nicotine patch, in conjunction with some scheduled elective surgery, which was another motivation for quitting. I did not want to experience surgical complications due to smoking, so I put on a nicotine patch one week before surgery, used it up until the day of surgery, then removed it and never used or needed one again. I haven’t smoked for eight years.”

Meister says she hates to be a reformed smoker, but the smell really does stink and she can smell a smoker several feet away. She can even tell if a smoker has been on her chiropractor’s table! And she sees no reason why she should have to deal with someone else’s smoking, so she is in favour of smoking bans.

“If a person wants to smoke (and I frankly don’t know how they can afford it anymore: when I started smoking, cigarettes were 55 cents a pack, and they’re now five dollars a pack) then they should be made to do it where it won’t affect anyone else.”

Meister also says smoking is highly addictive, serves no good purpose and it
took her years and a lot of inner strength and determination
to quit. Cigarettes should be labeled a controlled substance
and treated accordingly. If heroin is illegal to possess and
use, cigarettes should be, too. The only “good” thing to
come from smoking is the millions of dollars lining the
pockets of tobacco companies and CEO. They should be
treated the same as Columbian cartels.

Note: I have recently published a book about smoking, including several tips for quitting. It is available at http://stores.lulu.com/kakonged, as well as Amazon Kindle.

Expanding Self-Publishing Ventures

Self-Publishing One - December 6, 2009

I am someone who loves self-publishing. I have spent this entire weekend, with the exception of a bit of marking, expanding my self-publishing pool.

I have 32 books for the offer on Lulu.com (http://store.lulu.com/kakonged). Now I am waiting to find out about whether my books will be accepted for Amazon Kindle as e-books, as well as CreateSpace. CreateSpace is similar to Lulu.com, however, is one of Amazon.com’s companies.

It was a lot of hard work. Having my books on Lulu.com made it a lot easier. I found the Kindle system fairly easy to use, however with my computer at times it would take a lot of time to upload large documents that would have photos.

CreateSpace uses a .pdf format. I found this extremely efficient for uploading large files that also had photos. The first entry point seems a bit daunting at first and I ran across some glitches at first. The excellent thing about CreateSpace is that they offer free ISBNs that are generated instantly if you do not have one. This way you can also make your books available for international distribution, as well as available in libraries.

Overall I found my time working on these self-publishing projects to be well-spent. Even though I have 32 books published, I was unable to publish them all. Lulu.com may remain the key depot to find all of my books. I was able to offer some of my books for better prices than they appear on Amazon.com currently, as well as Lulu.com. I will keep you posted.
