The Center for Tobacco Control has created two documentaries designed to help individuals stop smoking.

 



4000
is about tobacco addiction. The documentary, filmed at the Center for Tobacco Control in Great Neck New York, discusses how to overcome the addiction to cigarettes, available treatments and testimonials from clients who have successfully quit. The documentary gets its name from the 4,000 chemicals contained in cigarettes. Forty-three are known cancer-causing (carcinogenic) compounds and 400 are poisonous. The 4,000 chemicals include nicotine, tar and carbon monoxide, as well as formaldehyde, ammonia, hydrogen cyanide, arsenic and DDT. 4000 is hosted by Fran Capo, comedienne, adventurer, author, actress and motivational speaker.

  I Could Have Been Five Feet is a compelling documentary featuring a young woman, formerly an adolescent smoker. Meghan chronicles the physical and psychological impact smoking had on her early life, despite having been a smoker for only six years. She describes her intense and prolonged struggles with quitting and speaks with other young people about this powerful and life-threatening addiction. We hope that her story will influence other young people when they are faced with the decision to initiate smoking.
