How to Stop Smoking and Stay Stopped is published to support a pan-BBC campaign, Kick the Habit, launching in March 2000 on the subject of addiction. The author takes the line that stopping smoking is a process which can take time and can be difficult but is certainly possible with good planning, determination and a bit of support. How to Stop Smoking and Stay Stopped provides help in all three of these areas. The book begins by explaining just why it is so hard to stop. It describes the importance of motivation and preparation before guiding the smoker through the process from day one onwards. It includes details of the common problems and excuses that smokers will come up against and suggests solutions. As well as information on the various therapies available (both traditional and alternative), the book provides details of where smokers can get further help and support. How to Stop Smoking and Stay Stopped is a practical book, filled with charts, tables and questionnaires. Drawing on 25 years experience in helping people to quit, Martin Raw has written a truly smoker-friendly guide, including case studies examples of how real people have beaten their addiction to encourage the reader to stop smoking and stay stopped!
