In response to my request for suggestions for tobacco cessation videos for hospital inpatient teaching, here are the responses I received. Thanks to everyone who provided their suggestion.
1. Video Librarian Review - September/October 2006 You Can Quit! How to Stop Smoking During Pregnancy
(2006) 50 min. VHS or DVD: $69.95: public libraries; $149.95: high schools, colleges & universities. Facilitator's guide included. Injoy Videos. PPR. Color cover. Closed captioned. You Can Quit! How to Stop Smoking During Pregnancy opens with a short introduction featuring information that doctors typically share with pregnant women to encourage them to quit smoking: i.e., reduce the chance of a premature birth, save money, and decrease long-term health risks for both mother and child. But the bulk of this program is devoted to the "how-to" of quitting, suggesting a variety of different self-help tricks (list the times you smoke and find something else to do during those periods; always have something around to keep your hands and mouth busy; and be aware of the withdrawal symptoms), followed by a brief section on remaining smoke-free. Combining dramatic scenarios, informative graphics, section summaries, and brief interviews, the program sometimes seems a little elementary (for example, the narrator encourages viewers to "pause now and think about how you're going to handle your stress"), but given the seriousness of the health risks involved*as well as the number of pregnant smokers*this spell-it-out approach is probably best to reach the intended audience.

2. Swedish Medical Center in Seattle Washington developed their own for use in house.
3. KICKIN' BUTTS: HOW TO PUT OUT YOUR LAST CIGARETTE Have you ever wanted to quit smoking, but weren't sure exactly how? Follow Diane as she puts out her last cigarette and begins her journey to be nicotine-free. In this 24-minute program you'll find out exactly what to expect when you quit smoking and get tips that will help ease the transition to becoming a non-smoker. You~Rll find out tips, such as what are the 4 D's and what the rule of HALT is all about. You will hear from experts like Christine Mason of Addictions Recovery, who will tell you exactly what sort of withdrawal symptoms you can expect to have once you quit smoking. There is also information about how to keep away from potential triggers and where to get help and support. This program is also helpful to teach kids what to expect when a family member quits smoking. It helps them to see what an emotional roller coaster everyone goes through when a loved one stops smoking. 2000
