What Did They Do To You To Make You Quit Smoking?

A common question posed to graduates of my stop smoking clinics was what the clinic did to the them to make them quit smoking. The video explains that as a clinic, we did nothing to them to make them quit. All that we did was provide the participants with information that helped them to understand what they needed to do to quit. It is the same information that provided freely on the Internet, through Joel's YouTube channel as well as through information and support available at the WhyQuit.com site.

"It's Inevitable, Some Smokers Are Going To Relapse" 

If you are a member of any quit smoking support group, whether it be online or a live program, it is likely that some members of your group are going to fail.

Are Doctors Taught About Nicotine Recovery?

Sometimes the response people get from their doctors upon finding out that they had quit smoking is less than enthusiastic, often expressing great skepticism that the people will be able to sustain their quits over the long-term. The former smokers are often left discouraged and at times begin to question their own ability to stay off. Video explains why physicians are often pessimistic of people's ability to quit smoking and stay smoke free over the long term.

Joel's Halloween Fearfest

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=IPynhryM2RY

 

Halloween is a holiday where people try to scare themselves. It is a perfect holiday to address irrational fears people have regarding quitting as well as the frightening realities faced by people who smoke and do not quit.

Scaring yourself to death is really pretty hard to do. Smoking yourself to death isn't. Don't use fear to trick yourself into not quitting--treat yourself to a healthier and happier life by making and sticking to a personal commitment to never take another puff.

A common misconception is that smoking is simply a habit and that if you can go 21 days without using you will break the habit .
