I'd Rather Carry On Smoking, Thanks!

This is a favourite book of mine.
.

.
You see, I'm a bit of a pedant for the correct use of grammar and punctuation.
.
(I realise I'm leaving myself wide open for past or future errors I will make, but I cannot stop my inner-stickler wincing whenever it sees a case of poor grammar or apostrophe abuse.)
.

.
I can't help it.
.

.
I wish I could, but I can't!
.

.
So I was quite tickled when I saw this advert in my local newsagent....
.

.
So hang on, if I give up smoking all my weight becomes loose?
.
I know, I know! I should get a life!
.
So if you're normal and can pass by a sign like this without cringeing...
.
.
Then I recommend this book...
.
.
If, however, you're a sad-case like me and want to see more pictures to make your eyes roll, then check out these sites:

PS - I don't smoke, it just made a good post title!

I am sure you are right there, with my mom cringing, when you read my blog. It has been over 20 years since I took an english class, (I didn't pay much attention when I was there.)
I would love to find a user friendly, simple, book to help me.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I have an issue with that also. I am not an expert though.

I like the look of that book. I was handed a leaflet at a fete yesterday inviting me to find out my future at a physics party..
