This up-to-date video clearly identifies the major medical quitting methods that are currently available to anyone who wants to stop smoking or chewing tobacco. Two teen presenters offer an overview of nicotine and its addictive properties, as well as an explanation of the withdrawal process. The program looks at five FDA approved methods that are commonly used today: the anti-smoking pill (Zyban), nicotine gum, the nicotine inhaler, nicotine nasal spray and the nicotine patch. Quitting "cold turkey" is also explained. The pluses and minuses of each method are reviewed by the presenters, with additional commentary from a prominent physician who specializes in smoking cessation. Proper usage and side effects for each method are explained in a simple, concise manner. The importance of joining a cessation support group is also discussed. Teens learn that smokers who use nicotine replacement therapy together with a behavioral change program double their chances of successfully quitting. Activities in the Teacher's Resource Book aid students as they expand their knowledge. This video is sure to offer helpful information to any student who is struggling to break free of tobacco addiction.
