This companion workbook to Smokescreen: A Jewish Approach to Stop Smoking will support the reader in reaching the goal of attaining a smoke-free life by going through a process for quitting smoking. Depending on your CE needs, this course can be purchased separately, or if more CE is needed there is no charge for this course when the main course 'Smokescreen: A Jewish Approach to Stop Smoking' was purchased initially. Then, this would be viewed as a companion workbook course to the main book.

The workbook contains the insightful work of experts in smoking cessation, aids – including a self-hypnosis script - and a series of worksheets that can be used to evaluate smoking habits, motivations, and goals.

In addition, the reader will learn keys skills for overcoming addiction. Incorporating the tenets of Judaic traditional thought, the hands-on approach helps readers: identify smoking triggers, create a Quit Team, learn skills to stay on track, deal with cravings, prevent weight gain, learn to incorporate meditation and mindfulness practices, and develop a spiritual center.

Note: This Workbook Course is a companion course to the book Smokescreen also available on this site. This workbook course is available at NO CHARGE when you purchase the course based on the book Smokescreen. This is an excellent offering if you desire a total of 14 CE. [Workbook is paperback only]
