This is the synopsis from Fantastic Fiction:
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.
I listened to the audio and, although it is a short book, it really hits you hard and sticks with you long after the audio is finished. Stephen King always has that way about him where he makes the reader feel the horror that the characters are actually going through. It reminded me why I always enjoyed King's work so much. It's been awhile since I read his books but this one brings it all back to me and I want more!
