After smoking 20-40 a day for 22 years I gave up smoking on August 1st after reading the Easyway to Stop Smoking. It has been easy. It remains easy. I will never smoke again. I tried many times to quit before and was resigned to being a smoker for the rest of my life. Thank you thank you thank you for giving me back my life.
I have been smoke free for 17 days, since reading Allen Carr’s Easy Way To Stop Smoking. I am of Maori descent from New Zealand where Maori women feature the highest in our country for smoking, a sad but true statistical fact. Purchasing Allan’s book was by far the best $29.00 i have ever spent and although i have only been smokefree for 17 days i know that i am truly free forever of being a slave to nicotine. I had been a smoker for 30 years and never even thought that i could give it up i thought being smoke free was a dream that somebody like me could only think about. I will forever be grateful to Allen Carr and his wisdom. He is a precious gift to this world and most certainly to me and my current freedom and dream of being smokefree is now a reality. I am now reading his book on the Easyweigh to lose weight and will keep you all posted on this exciting development in my life.
Kiaora Allan, ka nui te mihi kia koe. Maa te Atua e Manaaki koe me to
A huge acknowledgement to Allan and may your God bless you and your family also.
Allen Carr freed me from smoking, but of much more, too. Not only did I happily give up smoking without ever regretting it for one minute, but his philosophy can be applied to all bad habits, not just smoking. For me, it was a great victory! Thank you.

I would like to say a big thank you for helping me to be a non smoker.
I am glad to say I am a non smoker after 40 years!! I feel so much better and wished I had gone to Allen Carr’s clinic a lot sooner.
Thank you Eileen Marsh

I stopped after reading Allen’s “Only Way To Stop Smoking Permanently” – well it was the same price as EASYWAY and it looked like it had more words !!!
The best book I have ever read. No other book has changed my life and turned it round completely.
At every opportunity if someone asks about stopping smoking or realises that I used to smoke an ounce of rolling tobacco a day, I mention Allen’s books.
I wish I could have met him before he was taken away, but somehow I felt I knew him, as through the book realised we had so many shared experiences through our previous addiction.

A half and half story this time. I refused to read a book, point-blank. I chose another method with a non-NRT ingredient. It worked but on the 5th day my wife gave me the EASYWAY book. If I had have accepted the book straight away I would have saved myself more money and fully realised why quitting is so very easy. The book has cleared all unanswered questions and removed the fear of never smoking again. Thank you Allen – I am now off to sign the SCANDAL cause.
I began reading the book on 18 July and put out my last cigarette on 29 July and have not looked back. Buying this book was the best thing I have ever done and to think that I set out just to find a book to read and ended up stopping smoking after more than 30 years of slavery

I will never, ever forget this genius of a man who is no longer with us physicaly, but shall remain in so many people’s hearts….there are no words to portray the imense work of art he has created in the world…He is my personal Jesus and I shall love him forever…
I was in an International bookshop ( I live in Italy ) and His book fell on my foot…I was putting it back in it’s place when I read the title…This was my ’ Sign ’ ! I have been smoking from forty to fifty a day for thirty years….I read his book and stopped …..His magic works….thank you thank you…thank you….
I started smoking at the age of 15, now at the age of 31 have finally stopped smoking for good. I bought Allen’s book after my sister stopped smoking using his method. I read the book as soon as it arrived, at times it made me laugh out loud, I just sat nodding at his words, everything seemed to make sense, he is the first person I have ever listened to in respect of stopping smoking and why not, he was an expert, having smoked more in a day than some of us managed in a week!
Allen’s approach is full of common sense, common sense smokers hide from, he dispels the myth that stopping smoking is some form of mental torture, get over that aspect and the rest is a breeze. There have been times when I have experienced a nagging feeling, my reaction, soak up a bit more common sense from Allens book. For the first week it came everywhere with me, not any more – I feel totally free, but it’s in a drawer in case it’s needed, a ‘fag’ will never take it’s place.
I was gutted to find out that Allen had died, but surely his passing due to lung cancer, is his final and absolute lesson to us all.. his final dose of common sense, what a clever man he was.

My wife purchased your Easy Way book on CD a couple months ago. When I found out about it I literally laughed in her face, which I might add made her quite furious with me. I said “there’s no way a CD/Book can help you to quit smoking”, me being on of those very strong willed people you had talked about in the book, I had quit many times over, at that point I was only smoking 1-2 cigarettes per day and would proclaim it to anyone who would listen. I had will power, I could go without cigarettes for days at a time if needed. My wife on the other hand is one of those women who quit cigarettes while with child only to light up the second our beautiful daughter was born, well maybe not that quickly but you get my point. I had continually harped on her to quit, but I was completely amused by the idea of a CD that would help you quit smoking. My wife listened to the first chapter or two and said she thought it was really going to help her quit, but then she stopped listening. I happened to be driving to Detroit from Chicago for a buisness trip about one month ago. Being that the backwoods Michiana radio stations aren’t quite my style I decided to pop in you Easy Way book on CD to see what it’s all about… I nearly finished all five CD’s before the time I arrived in Detroit. I spent the week expalining to my smoking colleagues that I had listened to your book. They all scoffed at the idea especially since I claimed to be nearly done with the book, but I continued to chain smoke(yes although most days I only smoke 1-2, on other days I would smoke a pack esily). On the way home I listened to the end of the book and almost majically I did not want to smoke. It was a simple as that… I am 28 years old and have smoke for the last 15 years, over 1/2 of my life. You book undid 15 years of brain washing… For this I thank you. I thank you for my health now and in the future. I thank you for saving me from that look of dissapointment from my daughter that I surely would have received should I have continued to smoke as she matured. Thank you for providing me with a tool that I can promote to my friends and colleagues… I truly hope they take the time to listen.As I said it just that easy, listen to the CD and your a nonsmoker.
tracy mccreadie said,
this has been an amazing experience & can’t thank you all enough.it is so easy & i have just passed the book onto my brother who has been a smoker for 30 yrs.i quit in feb and have never looked back.i don’t even want one in the morning with a coffee or after a meal which was a killer for me when i tried to pack in using other methods.i get so annoyed when i hear about the government spending millions when all they need to prescribe is allen carr’s book.best wishes.
Gary Taylor said,
RIP Allen, thank you for helping me to quit. I’ve tried before, but this is the only pain free way of successfully stopping smoking. I have already been passing on your good work and recommending your book to all the smokers I know.
Vladimir Shumilov said,
I simply wanted to thank you for your book:”Easy way to stop smoking”, I have tried quitting many times, and the book was a little push that I needed to try once again. It has been a year since I quit smoking and to mark the occasion, I send your book to one of my friends that still smoke, hopefully soon none of them will smoke. Thank you once again.
A friend turned me on to EasyWay as an audio book (5 CD’s). He had listened to them every day during an hour commute to work, and had quit smoking. After about 5 weeks, I finally caught on to how happy my friend was as a non-smoker, and he reached out to me about listening to the CD’s myself. I gave the usual excuses and was not “ready to quit”. His one instruction: “I’m not asking you to quit, I’m asking you to listen to the CD’s and be honest with yourself.” Which I finally did. I am on my fourth week as a happy non-smoker.
I have recently realized that I simply will not ever smoke again, and it is wonderful to be free of the slavery. I have noticed that my skin has color and I no longer have bags under my eyes (which I had blamed on fatigue and stress). I am able to handle stress better and the headaches that had become far too common, are little more than a bad memory. I feel healthier and happier every single day.
Allen had not only realized how to get into the perfect frame of mind to make stopping smoking easy and enjoyable, but he had also learned how to communicate it to anyone who truly wanted to listen. Thank you EasyWay!!!!
Renee Ward said,
Thank you Allen!
Its only been 2 days since my final cigarette but I know that I will never put one of those filthy white sticks in my mouth again! I am suprisingly happy as well which I really wasnt expecting, altough you said it many times in your book, I couldn’t believe I would actually enjoy this, but I really am. You are truly a genious! Thank you again, Renee Ward x
I started reading The Only Way to Quit Smoking Permanently on Thursday afternoon the 16th of August and was very skeptical. I had been a smoker for 16 years, from 17 years old until now at age 33, and have tried everything to quit and thought yeah right like a book can work.
By Friday afternoon I was on page 272 and just wanted to make it through another 100 pages before sleeping, I knew at this point that when I finished the book I would be a non smoker, but I fell asleep. I finished reading the book on Saturday evening after work. I have not picked up a cigarette since and I never will again.
Thank you Allen you have changed my life.
Thijs Broersma said,
I had stopped smoking for a day, and looking kind of “I’m not sure I like this” when my colleague recommended ordering “The Easy Way To Stop Smoking”.
Awaiting delivery of the Dutch version, he gave me “The Little Book of Quitting” and that is already amazing! A real eye-opener.
I know I will never smoke again, but I do feel I need to read the texts repeatedly, cause it is just so contrary to what you have always believed. But you know Carr is right!
Pascale Mills said,
I stopped smoking 6 and a half years ago using Allen Carr’s method and have never looked back. I remember immediately feeling how easy it really was and also feeling a bit of a fool for ever having been ‘addicted’ to something I never enjoyed doing. For the last few years I have had the same dissatisfaction with drinking and a couple of years ago bought the book Allen Carr’s Easy Way to Control Alcohol. When I read the book then, I didn’t feel the same way as when I read The Easy Way to Stop Smoking and didn’t see it through. So I’ve continued to drink the over last couple of years and have not enjoyed one glass of wine or one gin and tonic. Again I got to the point of extreme dissatisfaction and reread the Easy Way To Control Alcohol and feel so liberated that I never again have to do what I don’t enjoy doing – no matter what anyone says. I logged onto the website to tell you of this and have seen that Allen Carr has passed away. I am very saddened that such an amazing man is gone, but thank you Allen and all your therapists for everything you do.
Kerem K. ASLAN ( Turkey ) said,
I’ve been a 20 or sometimes more a day smoker for the past 11 years,and have no tried to stop it. Because I know, would not do it by myself. I’ve only quit for two weeks, it feels like years.
I really do feel like I choice to live, and it has been the best decision I’ve ever made.
No more slave, Thanks millions
I didn’t even read the book. I answered 20 questions on the blue web page (not sure if it still exists), but they were apparently from the book. I used to smoke 20 a day for 30 years, and quit just like that. I’ll never ever take another sigarette in my life. This is almost 4 years ago, and I never missed it.
David Mallick said,
I got the book this morning, finished it this evening, and I know I will never smoke again! Thank you so much.
Neil Waddington said,
I thought I would finally write and express my gratitude to the Alan Carr method of stopping smoking.
I attended the session with some reservations, about 7 months ago, as most smokers probably would. All I can say is I cannot believe how I stopped and how easy it was. I would have to be honest and say i had very very small cravings the first day and then after that, nothing. No withdrawals whatsoever. My fiance is happy and everybody at works keep saying how easy I did it and i just keep saying, I KNOW!!
Thank you once again, The ability to call myself a non smoker and be FREE is amazing and I owe it all to the method! If you are skeptical, Don’t be because it is one of the best things you will do!
William Fedi said,
I’m Italian, I got the book by chance last year but never seriously read it before this summer.
I can still remember me forbidding myself to open it again at the time, because for the very few pages I had read, I could already felt that something was telling me “hey, with this book you will definitely stop smoking”.
That pervert thought was what made me stop reading the book.
But this summer everything is working !!
I’ve read the last page on Monday night(2 days ago) while smoking my last cigarette. Following what Allen suggests, I said to myself “THIS IS THE LAST ONE, AND THIS TIME IS FOR REAL. IT GAVES ME NOTHING, I MUST DO IT FOR MYSELF !”.
That damned little cilindre filled with those fucking toxic substances that I had stupidly and meaninglessly loved and enjoyed for at least a dozen years was saying to me goodbye. FOR EVER.
I know, it’s only 2 days, but I’m 110% that I will never smoke again for the rest of my life.
I’ve never felt so certain of something than what I’m now about this.
Thank you so indeed to Allen and to the magazine Focus, which enclosed the book that I bought last year.
Hi there, i just wanted people to know that Allan has freed another soul from the nicotine disease!! I AM FREE and i owe it all to him! THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!
craig, Scotland said,
People still dont believe me when I tell them i quit easilly, rip Allan, i hope there is a next life so we can have a party smoke and drink free, you saved my sanity and my self respect.
Five years ago I smoked my last cigarette. Since then I have taken up cycling and have competed in 5 endurance events, something I never thought I was capable of as a smoker. I am fitter and leaner now than I was through the 20 years that I smoked.Before I found Allen Carr’s system I had tried to quit so many times it became a joke but after reading Allens book, I quit and have never touched another cigarette again.
Pavel Shevchenko said,
I didn’t believe, it can be so easy.
I’m from Russia, from the Ural region.
I’ve begun to read this book to show everybody that it doesn’t work. But when
I finished, I stopped smoking. Every my friend, who read it-stopped smoking.
I thought, it will lose the main idea after it was translated in russian.NO! IT WORKS!!! It’s INTERNATIONAL book!
Now I’m reading the next book and I’m sure, IT WORKS!!!
Ben Brooks said,
I got the book on the 1st of August. Finished it around midnight on the 2nd. Had the last cigarette and knew within 20 minutes that I’d never smoke again. And I haven’t and won’t. I’d smoked from 14 to 28 and “given up” many times in them years. But this time “stopping” was so easy and so final. I do like saying “I’ve escaped” or “I’ve freed myself from the slavery” ha ha ha!!!
The only downer was my mate knew instantly after his last cigarette (he read the book the month before me) that he’d never smoke again so my 20 minutes was a bit lame.
Anyway amazing book. I’ve been loving it in the pub as the only non-smoker. I live in Japan where you can smoke anywhere. Thing is, I totally hadn’t planned to stop because cigarettes are only about £1.50 out here so the cost was nothing after paying over £5.00 before. Still “Nothing To Lose” as my mate kept telling me. The rest is history.
I instantly phoned my family in England and told them I’d stopped and to buy the book. My mum said “but I like smoking”. And my dad said “I only smoke in the evenings”. And my brother had been given a copy last xmas but had never read it. He too “loves a grott”.
Fingers crossed they’ve read or started reading the book. I’ve also made all my smoking mates “aware” of the book and, like my mate said to me, said to them “Nowt to lose, init?”
Thanks again for the amazing book. Allen’s amazing legacy will live on and on.
Finally YIPPEE!!! I’M A NON SMOKER!
yosef faiberg said,
stoped smoking before a year
senks to allen and his great book
I got the book from my brother who stopped smoking after 20 years. I have been smoking for 7 years. I read the book during the weekend, by the time I finished I was a non-smoker. this is amazing! Thank you Allen.
Guillermina Feher/Mexico said,
I was a-pack-a-day smoker for 25 years, and became a non-smoker in one day after reading Allen Carr’s book (twice, admittedly). I haven’t smoked for 3 years now, and have a hard time thinking I did actually smoke once.
Rest in peace, Mr. Carr. Heaven deserves you.
Kirsten Gatti said,
I’m 34 years old, I read your book back in 2001 and I have been meaning to write to thank you ever since! I have been smoke free since reading your book and I am so grateful to you for giving me my life back. I smoked between 10-20 cigarettes a day.
Your book was fun to read and I was so excited about being free at the end of it. I couldn’t wait to finish the book and be a NON-SMOKER! I have given this book to many people, I know some will not read it, but those who have were able to quit easily.
I’m pregnant now and I’m so overjoyed I don’t have to be worried about “giving up” and needing a ciggie all the time. I’m also happy I won’t be smoking after the birth and my kids won’t grow up to think smoking is normal.
You are a life saver. Thank you!
Richard Austen-Baker said,
It’s 11 months to the day I went to Allen Carr in Birmingham and I have not had a single cigarette or cigar in all that time. It worked wonderfully for me. The first few days were just a little difficult, because of all the occasions when I’d normally smoke, but not nearly as bad as you expect. I keep meeting people who tell me “I’ve tried the Allen Carr book and it didn’t work…”, but I always tell them they must try the clinic – just reading isn’t the same thing as participating in something. Anyway – 8,375 thanks (and counting).
Charlie Aitken said,
I had smoked from the age of 11 until I was 50 and probably smoked between 30 and 40 a day. Mr Carrs book was a godsend indeed. I had no intention of stopping smoking and only read the book under pressure from family. I stopped immediately. No cravings, no withdrawal, nothing….. A life without cigs is fantastic
I stopped smocking the 18th of July 2007 after a smocking life of 17 years and the thing I have to say now is thank you.
Your book will be the birthday present for my father on August and already is the present for my friend Virgili.
Thank you, your book made me move in the moment I was promising myself to quit smocking, and with this, to quit a myself I didn’t like to be any longer. Daniela from Italy
Linda Fitzgerald said,
Today is the first day of the rest of my life as a non smoker. I’ve thought about smoking most of the day but the thoughts have all been negative. I know I never want to get caught up in the trap again. I may be feeling a little apprehensive today but I was feeling absolutely miserable yesterday. I never want to go back there again!
Patricia Wesson said,
I have tried on 6 different occassions to stop smoking using different types of NRT,they would work for a while but when the course had finished I would go back to smoking,infact I never really stopped craving for a cigarette.I was browsing in a book store 2 weeks ago when I came across one of Allan Carrs books ‘The only way to stop smoking permanently’ Thought i’de give it a go, didn’t seem a lot to splash out,Istarted to read the book on the way home one the bus,couldn’t put it down. I liked the idea that you wasn’t expected to give up the cigs untill you understood what Allan was saying through the book.There was no point in fooling yourself,skipping pages ETC. I have not smoked for 9 days now with the willpower method,I have followed Allans thought patterns and I must say it’s been the easiest quit I have been through. I do get the little monster creep up and give me a prod sometimes but I understand now how the addiction was controlling me and what a stupid little thing it was. Thankyou for the truth
Brilliant. I decided back in November to attend the smoking clinic and haven’t looked back. I’ve also attended the alcohol clinic back in april and again I have never looked back. The best thingI have ever discoveres- the allen carr easy way method!!
Ryan Meigs said,
Hi, I was very skeptical about this. I have been a happy non smoker since November. Thank You.
Kathy Baites said,
Please accept my condolences, I just learned of Alan’s passing. His book was an inspiration and joy to read. I caught myself several times laughing out loud. I have been a non-smoker for 1 month and I have never felt so free and happy; I smoked for 30 years. I decided I would read Alan’s book, go on vacation and smoke my brains out and quit when I returned. I did it with absolutely no withdrawal or regrets. Thank you so much for coming into my life. Oh my son has quit as well. Double Bonus!
rosie dove said,
I have never been prouder of anything i’ve done. its changed me as a person, i’m so much more confident now as i’ve realised that now i can achieve anything.
The book has honestly opened a can of worms for me psychologically. i never expected that to happen as a result of stopping smoking. now not only have i saved money on ciggarettes but also on therapy!
Louise Wale from Sweden said,
Thanks to Allen Carr´s book, which was given to me by my sister-in-,law I quit smoking one year ago. I red it once and started to read it a second time. I quit both the book and the cigarettes after one chapter. I feel so happy and so free. Now I keep 2 extra copies of his book at home, just in case someone would like to have one. Allen – I think that whereever you are – you know how grateful I am that you hade the courage, strengt and desire to help free smokers all around the world. Thank you also all Allen carr staff for continuing his work! Louise
Hello! I have been free for 4 days! Thank you for your wonderful program! I am going to pass the book on to all my friends who are still slaves to the weed!
I have been a 20-a-day smoker for 20 years . I am a “non-smoker” for the first time in my adult life !
I feel like skipping down the road .
I even went to a dreaded “social gathering” last night and didn’t even want a cigarette .
Thanks-you , Sir Alan , I am cured ! xx
Brian Griffin said,
A good mate gave me his copy of the Easyway, along with the comment “I started to watch this, but could’nt watch it all the way through as it started to really make me think about stopping” ??? go figure!
I was a pack a day smoker, anyway I watched it two months later,(cigarettes in hand), and have’nt smoked since. That was over 6 years ago.
There is’nt enough thanks I can give, but after smoking for over twenty years I am eternally grateful, as are my family.
The Easyway, what a legacy to leave a planet, RIP Allen.
PS. My mate, also a family man, finally watched the video through completely a couple of years later and has been smoke free since.

It took me a few goes to make it then two weeks after my wife had to give up becaurse of health reasens ,7 months now being a none smoker for us both.YE HA.IT’S GREAT A NEW LIFE. P>S we were smokers for 31 years Thank’s Allen Carr.
Blake Ahalt said,
Thank you for showing me your way out. It was so relieving to put out my last cigarrette, I was actually looking forward to it! I feel in control when I supress the NicoDemon inside me. You’ve given me the confidence to step into a new world.
23yrs old, smoker for 9 years, non-smoker for the rest of my life.
Thank you, so much.
Pablo Garzón said,
I’m from Ecuador. I lost much of my healt, my tooth pieces and oportunities because of the cigarrette. By now it’s been 1 year 3 months without smokin thanks to Allen Carr’s brilliant book. You should have been awarded in life wih a Nobel prize or whatever.. Because I’m sure it is the best way to quit the poisoning. My mom is reading it now, but she is not determined yet to finish it quick, and I’m getting desperate.
Thank again Allen for a great support.
