Watch video quit smoking lessons during Smokeout

The Great American Smokeout 2006- Watch free video quit smoking clipsImagine spending this year's Great American Smokeout with one of the world's leading stop smoking. Imagine inviting him into your home.

Joel Spitzer of Chicago, author of "Never Take Another Puff," has recorded more nearly 500 video stop smoking lessons that are available for viewing at WhyQuit.com, a popular free quitting forum.

Who is Joel Spitzer and why would smokers be well advised to spend time exploring his work? Few smokers have ever met a full-time smoking cessation counselor. Fewer yet have encountered one with 40 years of clinic experience. Joel presented his first two-week, six-session, twelve-hour stop smoking clinic as an American Cancer Society volunteer in 1976, and has conducted more than 350 clinics since.

He recently retired from presenting smoking clinics and seminars for the Evanston and Skokie Illinois Departments of Health. Online he has served as WhyQuit's education director since 2000. "Never Take Another Puff," Joel's free PDF stop smoking book, has millions of downloads since August 2005. And his more than 100 quitting articles are widely shared at all major online quitting forums.

The topics of Joel's nearly 500 video lesson range from how to avoid blood sugar swing symptoms such as an inability to concentrate, to understanding the emotional loss associated with quitting smoking, to preparing for one of the most vivid dreams imaginable - the smoking dream.

Will this year's Great American Smokeout be the year that you at last put your greatest weapon of all to work, your intelligence? Knowledge truly is power. Just one lesson at a time, yes you can!
