Manchester, United Kingdom (PressExposure) December 24, 2009 -- One-time multi-substance drug addict Chris Sullivan revealed at a Manchester book fair this week why he offers a free service to quit cannabis via his website.
"We don't exactly offer the full quitting service, he explains, but if someone who needs that little bit of extra encouragement or reassurance then we are there for them, at least via email or Skype. Conceptually helping people and making money will always be at odds with each other.
Having said that, all of us need money to feed and clothe ourselves and for that reason I personally am never ashamed to take bread and soup at the end of a hard day's slog! Helping people to quit drugs is not a glamorous job by any means but if money is a stumbling block to becoming happier then I am pleased to help as much as I possibly can.
"I grew up in poverty and I remember the misery of being stoned all day long. I never read books in those days because I couldn't afford them. Therefore I want to be there for those people who genuinely want to quit, wherever they happen to be in life."
In The Joy of Quitting Cannabis Sullivan writes; 'quitting cannabis is achievable without using willpower or suffering pangs of temptation and life after cannabis is so much more enjoyable.'
In January/February 2010 Sullivan will see three new books published, The Joy of Quitting Cannabis, How To Quit Marijuana In One Easy Step and the Dutch translated version Kappen Met Blowen Is Een Eitje.
