Look Who's Talking...

This is a much needed, comprehensive book about how and why to quit smoking. If you thought you knew it all, had tried it all, but are looking for a way to make it happen (this time!), this is the book for you.

It turns out that you need to prepare to quit smoking, and if you do, you have less trouble quitting! Dr. Bens has a wealth of information on every aspect of getting healthier, supporting your body’s wish to be well, and the benefits of specific nutritional supplements. This is information that is specific to smoking, and has never been compiled in just this way before.

“Kudos, Dr. Bens, you’ve filled an important niche. I will definitely recommend this book to my patients who still smoke-that is if they admit it!”

-Carol L. Roberts, M.D. Medical Director and Founder Wellness Works; Radio talk show host, WMNF and WHNZ


“The genius of The Healthy Smoker is that it is a motivational resource for the smoker AND the non-smoker alike. It’s a clear, concise reference guide for those who are truly serious about good health. This is an incredible, must have, book that should be kept with all other timeless references.”

“The definite book to quit smoking, and yet this is more than just a book about how to quit smoking, it’s a new way of looking at yourself.The wealth of information found in this book is normally found in ten different books, but The Healthy Smoker has it all. If you have a friend who smokes, this is the perfect gift – it will show you really care. It’s also a great book for employers to include in their wellness/prevention program. When you get towards the end and you read about the long-term benefits, you’ll wonder why you ever did smoke. This book is a must for everyone, even if you don’t smoke.”

Healthcare Sarasota (PPO)


“The Healthy Smoker delivers a truly novel way to overcome one of the most common and powerful addictions today. Not only does Dr. Bens enlighten the smoker with many health opportunities, he also eloquently portrays the gradual downfall of a smoking habit. Combined, it offers every smoker a compelling reason to quit, as well as a logical and achievable cessation strategy. A must read to succeed.”

-Bart Rademaker, M.D.


“Destined to become a classic, the provocative perspective of this well-written book is engaging and inspiring. Charles Bens brilliantly describes his newly termed ‘healthy smoker,’ giving comprehensive and intelligent advice for quitting and bringing new meaning to ‘better health naturally’ for everyone, not just for smokers. His refreshing book offers a concise, easy-to-succeed approach that supports ones desire to survive, in spite of less than perfect habits. The Healthy Smoker is a major breakthrough and it will not only improve the quality of your life, it may actually add many years which might have been lost.”
