New interactive and supportive tools help quitters kick butts
SAN DIEGO, Jan. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- RealAge.com, the nation's leading health and wellness Web site, is launching a new program to guide and support nicotine-free wannabes as they kick the habit in 2008.
RealAge's new Stop Smoking Center launched today. The center is packed with proven strategies, long studied and pioneered by Michael Roizen, MD, a founder of RealAge and coauthor of YOU: Staying Young and other best-selling YOU books. The Cleveland Clinic's highly effective smoking cessation techniques are also included. In addition, RealAge expert and YOU book coauthor Mehmet Oz, MD, will inspire people to kick butts on The Oprah Winfrey Show January 22.
Fewer than 2% of the brave souls who quit "cold turkey" can ride out
nicotine withdrawal and resist smoking again, according to the Cleveland
Clinic. To quit for good, smokers need tools, support, and expert advice --
all of which RealAge offers in the new Stop Smoking Center. Anyone who
smokes can look to the site and . . .
-- Find out how hooked they are and which triggers will prove
easiest/hardest to thwart
-- Do mental and physical prep work before flushing the final pack
-- Find a "Quitting Buddy" and get daily checkups on puff-free progress
-- Predict withdrawal symptoms hour by hour, day by day -- and get ways
to tame them
-- Defy relapses and kick butts again with the YOU-Turn forum
-- Keep pounds off, and learn how to quell the stress of quitting
