Publisher's Summary

Dick Morrison's life has become a nightmare of addictions, filling his days with overeating, overworking, and smoking way too much. When an old friend tells him about a surefire way to quit, he's more than willing to give it a shot. But what Dick doesn't know is that Quitters, Inc. demands a high price from anyone who strays from their rigid rules-like a few volts of electricity for the nearest and dearest... or maybe a missing thumb? Forced to choose between his desperate need for cigarettes and the dire consequences of giving in to his addiction, Dick must decide just how important another drag really is.

Love the story, hated the narration.

I love this story and saw the movie with James Woods, it was great! I did not like the narration at all. I just can't get into it and can't seem to get past the first 5-10 minutes.

This is one of my favorite King short stories but I was disappointed by the performance. At several points during the recording, there is a heavy handed sax driven muzak playing in the background - it makes the performance come off as cheesy and makes the reader difficult to understand. As for Roberts - he reads through the material very quickly and he often sounds like he has the microphone too close to his mouth and is often hard to understand. I tried setting the ipod to slower playback but it just made him sound drunk. I set the eq on the ipod to spoken voice and that seemed to help a little - although by that point I may have just been used to it. The fact that this was so short was probably the only reason I stuck it out until the end.
