Thank you very much for posting!
It’s just a small ‘click’ in your thought process. As easy as that, after all. And true enough, almost no withdrawal symptoms. After 2 months, I do still have to remind myself when I see my friends smoking that I don’t want to smoke because I don’t need to – that there is simply no point – but that feels like strong enough armour for me not to smoke again.
From the moment I started to read the Easyway book, I found it fascinating reading about the many aspects of smoking that were making me a slave to nicotine. As I progressed and completed the book, I could not be more happy to be a non-smoker, my joy is compounded by the fact that I know I will never fall into the trap again, as I now see smoking for what it really is. Thank you Allen Carr and the team.

I owe Allen a great debt. He left me a non smoker over 15 years ago. The last page in his book was my last cigarette. I often think of him and how blessed I have been to be smoke free. I have probably saved in excess of £15,000 also. Thank you Allen.

As a smoker, I thought I’d never be able to live without cigarettes. It was just not going to happen for me, even though I wanted to quit, but was so afraid of failure. I still cannot believe that I am a happy non-smoker for 3 months now. Thank you for proving me wrong!

yipppppeeeeee. happy non smoker for four months of freedom
Jon Brown said,
I smoked heavily for 26 years, nothing and I mean nothing could stop me. To lay in your bed some nights going to sleep knowing you we’re going to wake up and do something that not only you didn’t want to do, but was very likely going to kill isn’t nice, knowing you’ll never ever be a smoker again is! All because of one book.
It’s unexplainable to a smoker until they’ve read it. I wouldn’t have. JUST READ IT NOW! Smoke your head off all the way through! Read it.
Ahmad Natour said,
Dear easy way team
i’v been a happy non smoker 4 months ago
i just cant believe how much i’m happy and this feeling of freedom
can’t leave me alone
i can control my life
i can singing again
i love my life more and more and more
i can see now wt is the real relaxation
thank u my super genius allen carr and
R.I.P you should be in heaven right now i cant stop crying
this happiness tears is my gift for you Mr.Carr
i cannot begin to explain how this book has changed my life. i went from fifty cigarettes a day to unknowingly having stopped before id even finished reading the book. i can now stand next to smokers, be offered one or deal with work stress feeling happy that i have no desire whatsoever to smoke or inhale not only nicotine but any smokeable substance ever again.
Reading this book lead me to easy-weigh and before i knew it i was using the same method in every area of my life. it has allowed me to take control of both my professional and personal life. i’m happy healthy and motivated but most of all successful in my accomplishments. I’m constantly scrutanised by friends strangers and family but this doesn’t discourage me in the slightest.
I have only mamaged to convince one person to consider these books but they have had as positive result as me. I feel i owe my mental and physical health to cassie, my friend whom recommended the books to me and
allen Carr for sharing his solution.
Claire Dawe said,
I have been free for 6 months and it really was easy! I read the book almost willing it not to work!! I couldn’t get my head round how a book could make me give something up I craved so much for. It really has changed my life and I lent my book to my brother who has also given up for 5 months now. The book costs the price as one pack of fags, so try it, what have you got too loose?! It really does work and really is easy!!!

Watched a DVD…quit this past Saturday…not even a thought in my mind to smoke…yet I used to tell people that I smoke so that I don’t kill stupid people…the stupid people are still safe and I am a non-smoker…
Mike, Brighton said,
I attended the Allen Carr session at the Holiday Inn Brighton 19.04.2013. Can you please pass on my best wishes the to the lady that carried out the session? I can’t believe after all the misery that I have been through lately that I have been able to get rid of the dreaded weed from my life. I know that its early days and I have been here before, however this time I am more aware of what goes on. Have started cycling to work 6 miles each way, something that I would never of dreamt of before.
Thanks once again!
Joanne Mitchell, Haworth, West Yorks said,
The Easyway to Stop Smoking – an inspiration… so glad I read this book. I am a fulfilled, happy and much richer non-smoker. Many thanks Mr Carr.
i got this book from a store one and half year ago and i kept it after that till 4 days ago, i suddenly thought of reading it and finished it in 2 evenings and its been two days i haven’t smoked and i am feeling so happy and confident about myself, i know i’ll never smoke again now, my only regret is that i wasted 1 and half year smoking eventhough the cure was as near as under my pillow… Thank you Great man Mr. Allan Carr. You will always live in the hearts of those you cured.

I was a smoker for twenty something years. For the past five years I was struggling with myself, wanting to get rid of my nicottine adiction, but I never attemped to do it for real. About 2 years ago I bought and read Allen Carr’s Easyway to Stop Smoking and nothing happened. This year I started reading the book again, and I am extremely happy to say that recently I began my journey to be smoke free for the rest of my life!!! Everything that I read in the book is so true. It is like if the author was reading my mind. You live with the fear of failing trying to quit. Meditation has helped me a lot as well, because through the book I had learned that everything is on my mind. So far I haven’t felt any physical negative symptoms, except for this energy/adrenaline rush inside me that is amazing!
From the bottom of my heart I want to thank Allen Carr’s method and all the passionate people behind this wonderful program, that continue to give hope to so many people around the world!
Best wishes to all,
4 weeks today, and couldnt be happier,
thanking you allen carr
Jade duke said,
Im jade from barrow-in-furness cumbria. I read Allen carrs easy way to stop smoking 7 weeks ago today and been smoke free since :) extremely pleased. I’ve tried quitting smoking 13 times using NRT and never lasted more then a couple of weeks.
I’m so glad my friend recommended this book to me as I felt there was no way I would be smoke free ever and it really scared me.
Thank you Allen Carr for getting me FREE
Brett Lillegard said,
I was a two to three pack a day smoker for twenty years. I tried substituion methods to quit smoking, but none of them worked. I bought the Easy Way book, but didn’t read it all the way the first time. Still, I kept the book. Several years later, I took the book off the shelf and read it in about ten days. On July 4th, 2008, I started my day smoking as I had for 20 years. As my day went on, I forgot all about smoking. I used to smoke one cigarette every 20 minutes, but on that day I went four hours without even a thought of smoking. When I realized I had forgotten to smoke, I also noticed I had no craving. That day I became a non-smoker again.
I now don’t think of myself as an ex-smoker. I am a non-smoker. It is as if I never smoked in the first place. July 4th is now my personal Independence Day, a day when I celebrate my freedom from the madness of smoking!
Many, many thanks to Allen Carr. May all smokers find the freedom he shared with us.
Victory! I am finally free of all my addictions and it feels wonderful!
I’ve applied Easyway to one or another substance (nicotine/alcohol/cannabis/caffeine) consistently for the past 5 years, but I’ve finally woke up to the fact that I was still feeding “the void” by continuing to imbibe the other addictive substances… Finally I’m free and I’ve never been more euphoric! This must be the moment of revelation!
Thanks to Allen Carr and all those involved with Easyway, you are both life savers and life changers : D
I have been a smoker for 33 years and have tried to quit, it seems like, 33 times!
After reading your book, things started to fall into place within my smoke filled mind and I am proud to say I AM A NON SMOKER now and have been for 1 week, thanks to you!
I will keep you updated!
My name is Kerry and I just have to let you know how fantastic, successful and easy I have found Allen Carr’s books. I have stopped smoking for five years now, gone from a size12 to a size 10 in just a few months (fruit for breakfast works a treat) and am now half way through “no more worrying” not because I worry but just out of curiosity and admiration for Allen Carr.
I am saddened that his smoking habit of past years got the better of him but he should rest in peace with the knowledge of saving my life and others. He IS a genius and I am totally in his debt for having written such brilliant books I only wish I could have thanked him personally. I boast about his books at every opportunity.
ALLEN CARR thank you.
Yours gratefully, Kerry x
I’ve posted on here before. Here’s another update…..
182 days Nicotine free. 4,368 cigarettes not smoked. $1,485 saved. 237 hours of my life not spent smoking. Thanks to The Easy Way to Stop Smoking by Allen Carr.
Jacqueline W - Australia said,
Well that’s 300 cigarettes I have not smoked in the last two weeks thanks to this incredibly easy approach to quitting. I realised yesterday that the inner voice had died several days ago without my even noticing, I’m not even thinking at all about smoking now. A 30 year addiction gone, just like that.
Thank you so very much Allen Carr!
Tony Tomlinson said,
My wife downloaded the book via Audible for me onto my phone. I started listening to it the next day whilst driving via Bluetooth and ended up spending the whole day listening to the whole book. I don’t know how it works but it does . I thought partway through the book that I’d quit but for some reason had kept enough tobacco for one more roll up . Sure enough when instructed at the end of the book to smoke that last one , I did. That was the last one !! Anyone who thinks they don’t need the book are kidding themselves and will spend their life in cold turkey , I know , I’ve been there .
Robert Holmes said,
YIPPEEE!!Thanks to you I have been a non smoker for a decade now. I am now gonna start blowing the EASYWAY trumpet again like I did for the first few years. Thank you for your great insights into the smoking trap which have allowed me to kick smoking’s arse so beautifully.
Subject – Flying
I just flew to Japan and back to see my son.
Not really such big news but IMPOSSIBLE before I read your book Easy Way to Enjoy Flying, recommended to me by my nephew, a fellow ( ex) plane phobic.
You are right; it must be read several times but it works! I waited for the old palpitations and tears to start but they didn’t. During the 12 hour flight if things started to affect me I would just repeat to myself some of the things I learned..eg about turbulence.
Yama Sarwono, Indonesia said,
I just finished reading the book, and have been stop smoking since 31 days ago. I feel much better and feel so happy being a non-smoker. Thank you!
I’m an Indonesian, and I really hope that you have a plan to visit Indonesia, so that you can save million of smokers here.

I really just want to let you guys know probably what you know already and that Allen Carrs method is amazing… I have used his easyway to stop smoking, stop alcohol (and drugs) and also lose weight…. (i also want to read his get out of debt book just as I have an idea that it may be about reversing the brainwashing that retail therapy etc provides some sort of pleasure .. ??).
His works have changed my life and opened my eyes in ways I never knew.
I have never attended an Easyway clinic as the books have worked for me.. however if you guys done already do this, I would suggest that if they had experts there on all his books so people could attend for weight problems, drug or alcohol problems, gambling, money problems etc… They could really be rehab clinics..I think his programs should be used as a form of recovery from all self destructive behaviors.
I spead the message as much as I can to others who are still suffering. I always tell smokers at work who say theyve been a week without a cigarette but keep eating lollies and are handling the stress to just give in, go buy a pack of 30s and a copy of Easyway, sit down, chainsmoke and read this book and youll never smoke again! haha.
Thanks to the team continuing the mission of Allens legacy.
Callum, Glasgow said,
Yippee! I’m a non-smoker
I’ve been meaning to do this for the two months since I stopped smoking thanks to your methods. I was skeptical that a simple book could help me stop, but everything just seemed to make perfect sense. And it’s been incredibly easy! Thank you!
Callum, 27, Glasgow
I did it!
Awesome way of making me realize I deserve the 4000 dollars a year not the government. Loved the book. I’m a better person because if Alan.
Yippee! Im a non-smoker
Thank you Allen. My mother read your book 10 years ago and stopped. Im just kicking myself i suffocated myself a futher 10 years.
All good though, im free now. Im a non-smoker and happy.
phil Vigeant said,
I have to say I am amazed at how a book can transform your life. I have tried on many occasion to stop drinking but have never been successful. Allen’s book gave me understand and with this understanding It was easy to quite drinking. It has been a life changer for me an I just wanted to say thank you.
Muchísimas gracias! Deje de fumar hace siete años después de 15 años fumando(mucho). Fue todo tan fácil. Leí el libro y dos días después llegó el momento en que entendí que ya no era una persona fumadora. Algo cambió en mi cabeza y ya no había vuelta para atrás. Las dos primeras semanas fueron duras por los síntomas físicos pero unas semanas no son nada comparando con la libertad que se gana. Ha sido una de las mejores decisiones de mi vida. Siempre le recordaré con mucho cariño al Sr. Allen Carr!
Gabe W said,
I’ve been a happy non-smoker now for over 5 months thanks to this book. I smoked for almost 15 years and realized that I was quickly closing in on having been a smoker for more of my life than I wasn’t.
Thanks to this book, I have my life back. I’m not as irritable and I have more energy both of which have inspired me to lead a healthier lifestyle. I’m more active and eating better. Those were not concious choices, it just sort of happened. My food tastes amazing. I haven’t tasted food like this since I was a kid. Even the taste of an apple made my jaw drop.
Thank you so much for sharing your method with the world Mr Carr! I’m doing my part to tell all my friends and family who smoke (without being the preachy ex-smoker). They are all jealous of how easy it was for me and how happy I am. Some don’t believe the book will help and are still trying other methods but I’m slowly winning them over. I know I sound like an infomercial but I can’t help it. I never would have accomplished this without the book opening my eyes.
It’s been 20 days now and I feel amazing, I’m free and know I will always be! Thank you so much!
Chris Callender said,
Allen has saved my life and will save the life of my daughter. The smashing of the illusion and clever deceit perpetuated by the tobacco industry, the government and the National Health Service and the medical profession, is both profound and brave. Ever since the chains and prison of nicotine have been removed, I do more, live more and achieve more, and I realise that I am happy. I have bought many copies of the book and given it away to friends and friends relatives. The book should be on the NHS. The principles applied to nicotine are clearly transferable to other aspects of life and enable and arm people to understand the tricks of the consumer industry to waste money, exhaust our bodies and be unhappy!! Thanks to Allen and his family that allowed him to take this venture.
I would like to thank Allan Carr for writing this book. It will be 3 years on May 7th 2013 that I have not had a cigarette. The book was a Christmas gift from my son, and it sat in my desk drawer for probably 2 years. As I was cleaning out my desk one day, I picked it up and went over to the couch. I sat down and started reading. I finished the book the next afternoon. I picked up my son at work and when he was getting out of the car I asked him to throw out my pack of cigarettes and lighter. I haven’t even thought about it since!!! I was a 2 pack a day smoker for 30 years!!
I tell everybody I meet that smokes about this amazing book! Many thanks to be free from this terrible habit!
Friends and I decided to stop smoking as a fundraising event and I was determined to succeed so I bought the book. Had a real “lightbulb” moment when it dawned on me that I wasn’t giving up something I enjoyed so it was hardly a sacrifice. The sponsored event lasted all of March and we raised over £700 for a dog rescue – and I am a non smoker :-)
Hello, I am 26 years old and have smoked a pack a day since my 16th birthday. I had desperately wanted to quit, and hated myself because I was not able to. I felt miserable every time I tried, and had nearly accepted that I would die young from my smoking problem. A friend of mine told me that there was this “book” that changed his life and made him not desire cigarettes. Low and behold I bought that book for 4.37$ (digital copy) on Amazon.com, and after reading the entire thing in one day, I have never smoked since. (It’s been months) I remember that a few weeks later my girlfriend exclaimed how proud of me she was. I had to stop and think about it, because I had forgotten that I used to smoke. After our conversation, I realized the power of what I had learned. I immediately went on the web to find a way to thank this incredible author. Unfortunately this great man had passed away in 2006. I truly believe Allen Carr and his easy way philosophy saved the longevity of my life. I wish I could personally thank him. Instead, I decided that I would spread the word and lead anyone to this book who wants to quit. That is why I’m writing this review. Human beings have powerful minds and can accomplish anything, but only when we stop lying to ourselves. Thank you Allen Carr, and the people who support his teachings. Why won’t our own government make this method known? I did not find this until I was 26. I could have been helped years ago. Thanks for reading.

I am off cigarettes two days now, I know it sounds silly saying that but I have stopped smoking before and stayed off them a year at a time but I feel different I don’t feel deprived like I normally do the only problem I have is not sleeping properly but I suppose that will rectify itself once the withdrawl is over. I read this book because in the back of my mind I wanted to stop and I thought what’s the harm. I read half of it and stop for a day or two because I feared it was actually working, i pushed myself to read the rest initially but when I got to the last few chapters I was so excited to finish the book so I could finally be a non smoker. I am so excited to be a non smoker. Big fan from Ireland.
Michelle Strickland said,
I have smoked since I was 14 years old. I had my last smoke one week before my 38th birthday in March this year while reading Allen’s book. 24 years of thinking I had to smoke has disappeared and the illusion is gone. I am a nonsmoker! I know without a doubt that I will never feed that monster again and bring him back to life! And it has been SUPER EASY, even as my husband continues to smoke as we sit outside together, I pity him and will not join in any longer. It has been 12 days and my life will forever be easier. I am so grateful Jillian Michaels refers this book to people. I expect my marathon and half marathon run times will greatly improve!I’m definitely putting this book in my husband’s hands.

31 year old overweight smoker, having smoked 15-30 cigs a day for 17 years (albeit smoked less in the early years). I’ve been successful in almost every other part of my live, both financially and in love, but what is it all worth if I was one of the unlucky ones who died early. I’d wake up every morning with pains in my lungs and scared myself silly it was premature cancer…AND yet I would rush outside in all weathers and light up first thing.
You’ve got to want to give up, you’ve got to enjoy the feeling of emptiness for a while even if it is completely foreign to you, but listen to your guide and listen to your inner self. I stubbed out my last cigarette at Allen Carr on Friday 22nd Mar 2013 and then did the strangest thing on the Sunday. Having not exercised for 17 years, I went for a jog. I did about 100m and could barely breath, but I would walk then jog. The point of it is that you can’t smoke so you want/need to feel the gap. Next day I joined the gym (I can not stress how vehemently opposed I was to gyms) and have been every single day since. Today (2 weeks after having stopped smoking) I ran 6km uninterrupted and loved every minute of it – followed by 30 laps in the pool. I feel strong, capable, healthy and empowered. I am you – normal – but I’ve changed and it’s only for the better. Whilst I still want to go to the Doctor and check whether or not I should have some kind of physical or blood test, the reality is my lungs feel great. I was tired after the jog but not out of breath. I would do one length (25m) in the pool and draw breath maybe 4 times. Your body can change and so can your attitude.
Be strong, be confident and more than anything, just be bold enough to make an appointment with the clinic. Challenge yourself and see how far you can take it.
Good luck everyone & thank you Allen Carr.
Hola, He sido fumador durante 22 años y lo he dejado recientemente, el 4 de Abril de 2013. Como a Allen, antes de apagar mi último cigarrillo, ya sabía que sería un no fumador para el resto de mi vida. Lo mas importante para mí, fué darme cuenta, saber y CREER, que el tabaco es una adicción y que no hay apoyo o placer alguno.
Gracias a Allen, soy LIBRE para el resto de mi vida y recomiendo su libro o su video a todas esas personas que se están planteando dejar de fumar. Realmente, este método funciona para dejar de fumar PERMANENTEMENTE.
Grácias a Allen Carr y a su equipo, por la labor que están haciendo a nivel mundial.

It has only been a few days so far, but I have never been more confident.
I feel as if I finally have my life back. Thank you
The book was recommended to me in June 2006, I had stopped smoking by the end of July 2006 after smoking for I don’t know how long. I then joined by local Sports Centre, changed my job and have now become a personal trainer etc.. I found it very easy to stop smoking and have completely changed my life. I now run, play tennis and teach fitness. I feel better than I did in my 20’s and that was sometime ago!!
Best quit smoking product(s) out there!! I read the book and no longer smoked. Thank You!!!!
Thank you Allen. I read your book and now i don’t need to smoke anymore. It really was like magic. My wife and three daughters thank you also. A turning point in my life. Genius.
Hi.I smoked for 22 years,and as of March 20 2013 I have been smoke free for 10 months.This book WORKS!You will come to realize there is nothing to give up,only to gain.I have my life back and it was EASY.Than you Allen Carr.
Allen you smashed it, I’d tried quitting 3 times before, first using willpower, then nicotine lozenges and then patches. Nothing worked and I’d resigned myself to the fact that despite the fact that I hated these filthy vile cigarettes, I needed them to have a normal life.
I read your book when someone recommended it, but I really didn’t believe it would work. How could a book make me want to stop smoking. It is truly amazing. Once the illusion of what I believed cigarettes was broken, I now look at cigarettes in a completely different light, the allure and the beauty of cigarettes has completely disappeared from my mind and the desire to smoke is completely gone.
Truly unbelievable, I hope you rest in peace because you’ve saved my life and thousands of others!
Jessica McMullen said,
I have successfully been a non-smoker for almost 9 weeks now!! This is amazing!! I smoked for 20 years and quit using the willpower method during both my pregnancies but started the minute I got home. I now understand why. This has shed a new light on many aspects in my life and I have a newfound confidence in myself I didn’t know I had! I would and have recommend this book to smokers looking to be free!
Ann-marie Lavictoire said,
I started smoking at 12 years old and have continued to smoke for the last 30 years. I have never tried to stop smoking or have wanted too, until a few weeks ago i looked at my 12 year old son and thought how upset i would be if he started to smoke. I also found i was getting so out of breathe. A friend told me that they had stopped smoking, as a result from reading Allen Carrs book. So i brought easy way to stop smoking, when i started to read it i got so hooked on it that i read it in 2 days. I am very happy to report that i have not smoked since. It may only be a week since i stopped but i know that i will never smoke again. I owe so much to Allen Carr, i really believe that Allen has saved me in so many ways and i cant thank him enough. God bless Allen RIP x
