    Dear Dr. Oz,
    In watching your show with Joan and Melissa Rivers, I was interested in Melissa’s desire to quit smoking. She said “It is hard” but that she was trying. I am now 84 years old and smoked until 1999. After several failed attempts, I decided to try a different approach. Instead of answering “I’m trying to quit” when asked if I smoke, and began to answer “I don’t smoke”, or “I’m a non-smoker”. Psychologically I believe it had a positive message to my brain, and I am now 14 years smoke free Any time I was tempted to “try just one” I answered myself “No, right now I have a choice”.

    Hope this can help someone.
