"Butt Out" is two books in one, one for a smoker who wants to quit or is thinking about quitting, and one for a partner who wants to help. It is based on the scientific literature on quitting smoking but it is written in a way that is easy to read. Quitting smoking is hard to do and many smokers feel judged about their smoking and pressure from everyone to quit. The author, Dr. David Antonuccio, understands the challenge of quitting smoking and has worked for over 30 years helping people do so. He has sprinkled cartoons throughout the book to help lighten the mood while systematically teaching skills that have been shown to be helpful in quitting smoking. The books can be purchased separately or together for a discount. This book was used for years to help veterans quit smoking at the Reno V.A. Medical Center where some of the most highly dependent smokers sought treatment. It has been systematically evaluated in research at that facility (Graybar, Antonuccio, & Boutilier, 1993) with good results. Now you can use what has been learned to help you or a partner quit smoking.
