be good to yourself...


Can you recommend any books on quitting smoking?

CAUTION. PLEASE NOTE (and I can't overemphasize this): these recommendations fulfill the requirements of the Compost in every way: they are available through libraries and from bookshops, and no one in the group profits from their use or sale. It is acceptable to recommend a published title that fits these requirements; it is not acceptable to advertise one's own book, or to advertise on behalf of an associate.

From Pete Dako

In addition to those books, once I'd gone through early withdrawal I found books with more political focus about the tobacco industry really motivated me to never start smoking again.

Specifically: Merchants of Death The American Tobacco Industry, 1988 by Larry C. White

The Cigarette Underworld, 1985, edited by Alan Blum M.D.

The Gilded Leaf. Triumph, Tragedy, and Tobacco. Three Generations of the R. J. Reynolds Family and Fortune by Patrick Reynolds, Tom Shachtman, 1989

Smokescreen: The Truth Behind the Tobacco Industry Cover-Up by Philip J. Hilts. 1996.

Hooked but Not Helpless: Kicking Nicotine Addiction by Patricia Allison

Happy Reading!
