Mr. Allen Carr, I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart (and lungs) for saving my life! I have been cigarrette free for almost 2 years and I will never EVER smoke again. I feel wonderful and thanks to you I have been able to break the curse that had taken over me for 15 years. A HUGE hug from Mexico. Have a wonderful day!

i started smoking when i was 14, and at nearly 20, i was smoking 20 a day. i regularly walk to attempt to keep my fitness up, and started to feel that the smoking was having an effect on my health.
i read the book and went walking on the glorious weather that we have just encountered a week after stopping smoking and there was already an amazing difference in my fitness, as i was able to walk up the hill without feeling as out of breath as normal!!! THANK YOU ALLEN CARR!

I read Allen’s book in Jan 08 and stopped immediately. My brother had read it before Xmas and stopped also. Although I was committed to stopping I was sceptical that the written word could have such a profound effect. However, it did and the feeling is great. I cannot believe what a mug I was to smoke as long as I did (22 years – ahhh). Stopping was easy and I would recommend this approach to everyone. Indeeed I have encouraged a number of friends and colleagues to read the book. So far I have helped three others to stop…more to follow I hope.
Thank you Allen and all those who have helped and supported you.

YIPEE!!! I’m a now a non smoker! I’m 25 and have been smoking for 14 years. Now that Ive got a family I thought it important to quit. Not only for my family but for myself also. My father recommended the book and I thought “if he could do it (smoker, 30 years) then I can definatly do it! And I have. Thank you.
I am a professional musician,(Singer/songwriter) and am so exstatic about quitting smoking that I would gladly write a promotional song for any campaign you may wish to pursue in the future.
Thanks for freeing me.

I owned Allen Carr’s book for several years, read it, but I never quite succeeded in quiting. This year I turned 35 and decided to attend a slimming club. As I lost my first stone I decided that I should try to quit the smoking again. I re-read the book and this time the message sunk in. I have now been free for two weeks and see smoking in a totally different light. My desire to smoke has gone up in, er… smoke!
Everyone tells you that you shouldn’t try to lose weight and quit smoking at the same time “It’s impossible!” they say. I’m finding it EASIER to lose weight without smoking. And it’s taken years off me. I keep looking in the mirror as I can’t believe how much better I look, and I feel so much healthier and happier too.
Allen gave me the key to escape the nicotine prison. I was sad to hear he died. I only wish I could thank him personally, I owe him a great deal.

Who would have thought it would be so easy.. Genius.. Saw the book in Asda, bought it, read it over 2 nights and presto… Instant non smoker. If only divorce was as easy. Thanks Allen, you have saved my life
Anna Owens said,
I don’t know what I could possibly say to you to adequately express what you have given me. I thank God for you. I could tell for a very long time that if I kept smoking, it would kill me. It burned and hurt me in a way it did not hurt others my age who smoked the same amount or less. My uncle and grandfather both perished due to smoking (tongue cancer and lung cancer), and I could feel my body trying to beg me to stop. I read your book, suffered for three days against the addiction, and then felt as though I had escaped prison. Thank you.
I smoked for almost ten years until quitting with Alan Carr’s method.
My girlfriend bought my the book as part of a law school graduation package. I did what many recommend against: I quit while studying for the bar. (I gained from quitting; why not gain something during a stressful time?)
Not only did I pass the bar, I haven’t smoked since!
My god..after 34yrs, I finally did it! I have been a non smoker since Jan 27th..the 28th was my 45th birthday, what a fantastic present! I can proudly hold my head up high and say “for the first time in my life…I have COMPLETE CONTROL OVER MY LIFE!!! Thank you Allen Carr!
While reading the last chapter of the book, I was walking around the house, puffing my last cigarette, while throwing out all my ashtrays.
I finished the book, threw out the last ashtray, and broke up the rest of my cigarette pack. Its only been a bit over 24 hrs, but I know that I am a non-smoker.
Peter Headford said,
Well I am at the six month mark.
The system has worked for me because
I believe I have handled it emotionally.
This was possible because of the content in the course.
I also believe that if I went cold turkey on the same day I would be back on them.
I feel that all round I handle stress
a lot better too.
I enjoy cycling more and went up market on a new bike with the proceeds of not smoking.
I tried three times over 31 years and this system was what worked.
I am hard core, and don’t care to be told that it is bad and controlling or I will die etc, not interested in the slightest.
I gave up to enjoy sport and to not smell of it whilst doing business.
I felt I was ready, and it appears so.
In any case the all-round benefits are great.
Thanks again Natalie.
Glen Cameron said,
I Just wanted to say I have reached the one month mark of being FREE, and I am so proud of myself. It has been so EASY and an absolute joy.
I look at my freinds who still smoke and think to myself thank god its not me who’s trapped anymore.
I have been spreading the word. The word that is Allen Carr.
Once again thank you to a great man.
Tracey Hewitt said,
I have had Allens’ book for 4 years and started to read it back then and never finished it. Just recently my children asked me when I was going to stop smoking, I replied by saying when I finish this detox I’ll give up. Well four days into the detox my 8 yr old son asked me again, so I picked up the book and started to read it again. I read it and finished it within 5 days, I had my final smoke on finishing the book. For myself I jumped up and down when I put the smoke out and yelled out “I’m a non smoker”. I honestly feel that I have know cravings for a smoke. I feel like I’ve never smoked before in my life. I gave up smoking may times but the little nicotine monster inside kept pulling me back. I was sad to read that Allen had passed on but he has left behind a fantastic legacy to many millions of people who want to take on the nicotine monster. Thank you so much
I watched the DVD of Allen Carr`s Easy Way To Stop Smoking a week ago and have not thought about lighting up since.I feel a fraud when my partner says he`s proud of me as it has been so easy to stop smoking.I recomend it to anyone. I was just looking for an email address to say thank you to the great man when i read that he had sadly passed away in 2006. I feel very sad on hearing this.I am sure that my own life has improved or even been saved because of Allen Carr.I would like to say Thank You if you are reading this up there,you were,and still are an inspiration to many
Paul Fletcher said,
I sadly started to experiment with cigaretts when I was 9 Years old, my mother used to buy me 5 Park Drive as reward for cleaning the house.
I have just read the Book “The Easy Way To Stop Smoking” By Alan Carr. As I read through the book I slowly lost the will to smoke, I continued to read right to the end. What a Guy this Alan Carr fellow was, It should read SIR ALAN CARR.
Any ways after 40 years puffing on the fags, Alan helped me puff my last puff.
God Bless Alan

Thank you Allen.
I’m 18 and have been smoking for 4 years (15/20 a day)
I finished your book yesterday and I’ve never felt such excitement.
I NEVER NEED A CIGARETTE AGAIN.
You saved my life Mr. Carr and I will be forever grateful.
Zoe Harmer said,
Thank you for changing my life! I downloaded Easy Way from I-Tunes in May last year and it was the best money I have ever spent. Having smoked 20 a day since the age of 18 I thought that I was going to be hooked for life. Thinking now of how I used to have near panic attacks if I only had half a packet left on a night out, now makes me laugh – how stupid was I.
Now I can enjoy nights out even more (especially as I don’t have to go outside every 15 minutes) and feel amazing.
Thank you for saving my life!

Lars Pedersen said,
I have now been a non-smoker for 15 months, after having smoked heavily for 14 years. And I just wanted to thank you getting me off the smokes for good. I didn’t think it could be that simple and easy, without cravings or substitutes. I read your book, while smoking, and just bloody-well stopped! Hurray for you. You saved my life and my sanity. I haven’t had one moment where I ever wanted to touch a cigarette again. Cured for life.
Thank you so much,
Just want to say finished the book a few days ago and couldn’t wait to finish my last cigarette. Its only been 3 days so far, but it has just been soooo easy- no physical pain whatsoever. I am ashamed to say I purchased Allen’s book about 8 years ago and got maybe half way through and never looked at it again until last week when I decided to give it a go. I now wished I had read it all those years ago. But YIPEE – I’M FREE.
Hope you know how many people you are still helping Allen. RIP
Thanks for a great book and the gateway to a new life. Two weeks Quit now and confident that this is the end of my smoking.
I’ve been free of cigarettes for 10 days now and cannot believe it’s happened so easily. I had some mild cravings, but I envisioned starving the nicotine monster to death and in a few days they were gone. I smoked 1-2 packs a day for the last thirty years and was never able to walk away from them before. Wow.
Thank you very much Allen! I am non-smoker now!!!
God bless you!

Excellent book! Many thanks!!! I “tried” quitting every half a year since I started, and always was happy about not smoking, but the right way is just never start again! I read all my thoughts in this book, but condensed and more persuasive. This book brought me back to happy life! I am free and confident again! I am MYSELF!

10 days but Im hopeful. bless Al. wished I’d had a chance to meet him xxx
After smoking half my life (I’m 25) I have finally succeeded in quitting. I read Allen’s book now for the second time and finally realized what Easyway really means. I’m so grateful.
Mark Lowe said,
40 a day to 0, easy. Anyone can do it, read the book with an open mind and you can can quit too. Thankyou :)
All I can say is that – just like all the others – that I am SO happy to have read The Book. I’m still in the early phase, but I am sure I will not light up again. Í don’t know how Mr. Carr managed, but I simply became a non-smoker from one day to the other.
The Book is magic.
Mr. Carr, rest in peace. You have saved uncountable lives and will continue to do so with your methods.
I thank you deeply,
linda stoessel said,
Quit July 31st 2007I said I would never stop smoking unless someone waved a magic wand and went poof you are a non-smoker. Well six months later I’m still a non-smoker. I didn’t know what to write here because I have so much to say, so I asked my sister for help. She said just two words-CELEBRATION & FREEDOM!Because that’s what I heard you say over and over. Stopping smoking was a fun and wonderful experience for me and I will never forget. Thank you so much for restoring my COURAGE Allen Carr! Yippee! I’m a non-smoker!!!
As I sit here getting over the cold and the flu I sit in appreciation that I am a non-smoker going though this. I remember in the past, even though smoking would make me feel worse, it wasn’t something that I would consider doing without. That’s when it should have clicked with me how addicted I was to nicotine.
My husband and I have been smoke-free for the past 8 months. We both started smoking at the age of 12, so we were pretty good at it :-)
A friend of mine spoke of this book that a friend of hers read and said that she quit smoking. I said to her, “What the hell is in the book?”. She bought one for me and one for her. I read the book first, very easy reading around the pool one day. I had two packs left in my carton and thought that I would try it Mind you when I got the book, I had no intentions of quitting, I was just curious.
Two days later my husband read the book after he notice I put mine down and he quit as well.
Like I said earlier, it’s been 8 months for both of us. I am so grateful to my friend for getting me the book. She read hers, put the smokes down for a while but went back to them. Go figure?
Here’s a cute story.
I guess my 6 year old grandson listens more that I think because one day a friend was over and she was smoking. Spencer leaned over to me and said, “Grandma, I don’t think she read the book yet”!
Feel free to use my testimony on the website.
I have been smoking for like 30+ years, hand rolled Duch tobacco. Did’nt think the cigaret’s you can buy tasted of anything.
Last week I’d finished Allan Carr’s book on how to stop smoking, and the moment I closed the book I gave up the 30 year old habit and become a happy non-smoker.
No problems to that thing at all, I’we always tught it would be hard to quit smoking, but no problems at all.
I have been a happy non-smoker for a week now and I haven’t felt no need at all for a cigarette
Thanks Allan for your words.

I heard about the book on Jay Leno from Ashto Kutcher, bought the book read a chapter a night like a normal book. halfway through I woke up and finished the rest in one day. I am smoke free happy and spreading the word. My brother read the book and quit and I am encouraging it to others. This method is amazing.

greig dunkley said,
Finally! it took me a little while, not because it was hard, Allen made it easy, but because of me. I fell back into the trap 3 times but i am now free forever, thank you Allen i think it’s about time that some certain other people woke up to the reality of just what this man has achieved. Greig
Sherri Taylor said,
Mr. Carr, as most who have read your book I too, am sending my “thank you’s”
I had stopped smoking a week before I read your book- after reading your book I was confirmed in my convictions and “energized” about my decision.
As gifts I have purchased your book for two other friends and expressed to others ( who have asked me ) to read it.
My friend was recently diagnosed with lung cancer – and this news has greatly affected all my friends and family. Your book has been a great comforting support system and I have the checklist on my refrigerator !
In ending I would like to add I now have 4 non-smokers in our cirlcle of friends and the support system has been wonderful – anyone who wants to bash or judge smokers – I simply say read Allen’s Book before you say any more….. Everyone has to come to their on conclusions the deciding factor for me was realizing that I am not giving up anything. Your encouragement to treat life just as you were – was an incredible joyous journey. Im grateful for the wisdom!
Choice is a beautiful word !
After many years of trying different methods, In November 2006 i purchased Allan Carrs Easy Way to quit Smoking.I took my time reading it so that i understood it properly, everyone around me refused to believe this method could work (Smokers mainly)After 2 weeks i smoked my last cigarette and freed myself from this awfull habit.. The following day i heard that sadly Allan carr had pasted away, This gave me more motivation to carry on on my journey in memory to him!! I have not touched or craved a cigarette since that day!! Over 14 months ago.
Thank you so much Allan..God bless you! xxxx lyndsey
I have red the EASYWAY last summer and very painlessly abstained from smoking for 3 or 4 months. However, I enjoy an occasional doobie with friends and that was my undoing! I have forgotten the instruction about taking no nicotine whatsoever..so around Christmas I have started “puffing” on “special” occasions again and at New Years I’ve even bought my self a package.
I have just finished rereading the Book and this time, I am convinced, it is the Real Thing. Evidently I am one of those who find it really easy to stop..and start again. Not anymore! I have also realised that part of the brainwashing about “enjoying” a cigarette on partys was still very much there. I believe I have got rid of it- as well as of the filthy weed!
They say the second try is not quite as remarkable as the first, but I feel that I know more now. I couldn’t actually wait to extinguish my final cigarette- and be done with it! (Unlike the first time where I have postponed finishing the Book for weeks!) YIPEEEEEEE!!!!!! I so wish Allen was with us to read this..no one has even come close to achieving what he has for us ! WE LOVE YOU, ALLEN!! Wherever you might be, you’ll always be in our minds, too…and HEARTS. THANK YOU THANK YOU…WE LOVE YOU.
thank you alen carr for such life saving remedies as you had,and the passion to share these with the rest of the world
kirstie & Paul said,
We both cant believe how deceived we have been for so long (20-30yrs)Thanks for offering the truth about smoking in a simple easy to understand way. We have found the process to be far easier than any previous attempts and will share this method with whom ever is interested.Thanks again, Kirstie and Paul down under :)
When we were told that you could stop smoking by rading a book both my wife and I said “pull the other one”. We were wrong, it really does work. My wife had been a smoker for 44 years and I had smoked for 46 years but we both found it so easy to stop after reading “Easyway”. It is only three months for us but we both feel so much better. However, I do not call myself a non-smoker but a smoker who has stopped. The reason being that I know that like an alcoholic with drink, if I had just one cigarette I would be back on the slippery slope.
To all the people who have recently become non smokers:
16 years ago I gave up with Alan Carr’s ‘Easy way to stop smoking’,after 30 years of 30 a day and having unsuccessfully tried chewing gum,patches and hypnotism.
I have never craved a cigarette since and have no problem with people blowing smoke in my face at social gatherings.
On the other hand, friends who used the old will power system (some of whom gave up more than 10 years ago) often say things like “I could kill for a cigarette at a party when I’m having a drink”
That’s the difference: once you’ve used Alan Carr’s method you think as a non-smoker and that danger of relapse becomes non existent.
John Widdowson said,
A point in history. Once we thought the world was flat, once it was cool to smoke.
Let’s move on for the sake of future generations. We just don’t do THAT anymore. It just wasn’t right.
A disciple of ‘The Only Way’ stopped – for good!

WHAT A GENIUS.. ALLEN YOU ARE THE MAN. YOU ARE THE RICHARD BRANSON AND ALL THE OTHER PEOPLE THAT I ADMIRE IN THIS PRESENT LIFETIME. I AM 28YEARS AND HAD BEEN SMOKING FOR 12YEARS. NEVER HAD IT CROSSED MY MIND HOW EASY AND PAINLESS IT WOULD BE TO GIVE UP THE LITTLE MONSTER WHEN THE FRAME OF MIND IS RIGHT. YOU ARE THE GREATEST TRAINER OF THE MIND IN THIS WHOLE WIDE WORLD. WHAT A SPECIAL GIFT YOU HAVE (SIR ALLEN CARR), I CANNOT THANK YOU ENOUGH AND MAY GOD BLESS YOU. AMEEN
Thankyou AGAIN Allen! I first read your easyway in 1995 and stopped smoking EASILY! I took up long distance walking and cycling and camping and even ran marathons to raise money for lung cancer research…and then, like a FOOL, I started smoking again after 5 years of freedom, just to annoy my husband. It worked! We’re divorced! And like an IDIOT I was left holding the babies and the cigarettes!! Another 7 long years later, I get to thank you again, after reading Easyway for women to stop smoking, which I picked up in the airport. I finished the book a week ago, in tears of joy, threw my last roll up onto the fire, sent a text to my daughter to tell her “no matter what happens in my life I will never smoke another cigarette”...and I have started to live again!! Thankyou thankyou thankyou! My only sadness? I just read today that you died, and I will never be able to thank you in person…but I WILL run again, and raise money again for lung cancer research!! God bless you Allen!! XXX
Thank you Allen for your method and your belief that we can all find it easy to stop smoking. You made me realize what a fool I have been to continue doing it. It took me several reads of the book and more than a year for me to finally quash my fears and do it. I can’t thank you enough for showing me the way.
I am a non smoker since 11th Jan 08.
I read the Easy Way to stop first, but wasnt ready to stop. Got The Only way and couldnt wait to light my last cigerette.
I was so scared to try to live without them, yet it has been so easy to stop.
I think that Allen Carr is with every single one of us when we are reading the book.
Bless you and thank you Allen Carr
Gillian McLaughlin said,
I smoked my last on Saturday at 3.30 in the afternoon: that’s 3 days and almost 4 hours ago. I have never spent such a long time free from smoking since I fell headlong into the trap 25 years ago. I have not foun dit difficult – in fact it has been surprisingly painless!
I attended a clinic here in Brussels and stubbed out my last cigarette at the end. The other participants and I bonded even though we came from very different places. I feel that I have everything I need now to keep away from nicotine for life. I can’t thank you enough.
Just as an aside: I think my mother was one of Allen Carr’s early converts in the late 80s… she hasn’t smoked since.
I am utterly shocked at the lack of support for this method and lack of enthusiastic response from the anti-smoking lobbies in the UK… hopefully employers will pick up the initiative and run with it. I’m waiting until my “stopping” reaches a credible duration and then persuading my employers to take the initiative organisation-wide.
Many thanks once more and more power to your collective elbows.
WOW!!! This was amazing!! I want to continue the crusade that you Mr. Carr have began. I know you are looking down upon me and have saved my life. Who could have thought that you smoking 100 cigarettes a day…. a world away… could make someone who was so addicted quit like it was nothing. I laugh at how easy it was and kick myself for not knowing about this earlier. Once this method is spread… smoking will cease to exist in those that are intelligent enough to understand what it is doing to them. I am a 28 year old engineer from Illinois, USA that thought quitting was impossible.. because I “loved” to do it. Little did I know.. I hated to do it… the “little monster” loved to do it.
Thank you thank you!! You have saved more lives than any Dr. in the world. One day… I hope you receive the Nobel Prize for what you have done. Truly unbelievable!!
