About the Book

The vast majority of people who try to quit smoking do not succeed because they do not have the knowledge and tools they need. This clinical guide helps individuals to develop their own individual smoking cessation program.  It  can be used with or without nicotine patches, gum or bupropion (Zyban).  The six chapters are designed to be read and utilized on a weekly basis, allowing 7 days between chapters to integrate the knowledge and skills into everyday life.  This weekly step-by-step program is similar to the one that Dr. Vullo uses in her clinical practice and public education classes.  This format is effective because it provides a “hands-on” approach which becomes individually tailored and well integrated into one’s personal life.  This book allows smokers to learn about their smoking patterns, habits, and personal stressors while identifying how to change these behaviors for life. Unlike most smoking books, this guide spends as much time teaching you how to remain nicotine free as it does on successfully quitting,.  Take control over your life and Quit for Life!
