Overview

Smoking is the single largest preventable cause of death in the United States and the world, and most smokers indicate a desire to quit. This book is a comprehensive guide and motivational tool for those desiring to become tobacco free and remain that way, as well as for those who wish to help others quit. Using illustrations from the actual experiences of smokers who have quit, a comprehensive overview of both smoking and quitting is presented, followed by an examination of the many specific techniques available to assist in cessation, from behavior therapy to nicotine replacement, group support to hypnosis. Special emphasis is placed upon the maintenance of quitting, helping people you care about get started on the road to quitting, eliminating weight gain, and the increase in the use of smokeless tobacco. Social and health issues such as second hand smoke, youth smoking, and the role of the tobacco industry's marketing of its deadly, addictive products are also discussed.
