Just out of curiosity, recently researched which organizations still conduct smoking-cessation clinics.  Ran across Smokenders, a company I remember from the days when I first quit.  I love success stories, and Inc magazine ran a terrific profile on the company--who started it and why, it's ups and downs, and how it emerged from bankruptcy in 1981 to become a profitable Quit Smoking franchise.  


They currently offer a seven-week online course where you get to smoke for the first five weeks while you learn how to quit.  Believe it costs $300, comes with a money-back guarantee, and touts a high success rate (supposedly verified by a John Hopkins University study).


Does anyone here have an opinion on Smokenders?  Is it a viable program or just another way to separate an addict from his/her money?
