Thank you very much for posting!
I stopped smoking last week having read Easyway. I am currently reading Onlyway as I wanted to go through some of the issues in more detail. I stopped smoking for some months a couple of years ago by reading Easyway but got recaptured and ended up smoking again. This time I believe I have followed ‘all of the instructions’.
The trigger for me was realising that smoking was adversely affecting my relationship with my one year old daughter. I am now better able to love and care for her. It is good to be free.
I just finished Easy Way To Stop Smoking. I think I smoked 3 cigarettes when I first started the book. After I got past a certain point, I was done forever. I think it is funny how Allen tells you to have your final cigarette. This is great reverse psychology at work. Because if you have read and understand the book there is no way you would ever smoke that final cigarette. I can also see how to apply this method to other things in my life such as drinking. Perhaps someone should also write Easy Way To Stop Internet Information Addiction.

I had your book for a long time now, but never opened it. I do not know why I even bought it. Maybe to have a good conscious? However I started reading your book out of boredom. Guess what happened? I stopped smoking, just like that, without any further-do. I was a smoker for 10 years, I liked smoking but was also pissed at how awful stinky it was… I started to eat more after I stopped smoking. But after 2 weeks I said to myself to change the habit of nutrition. Now I am not only eating good food but also smelling delishes. Thank you for your efforts and thoughts and putting it into paper.

I quit on the 2nd October 2012 at 09:00 and it’s been 1 day i feel stronger than ever and i cant beleive how could i have been a slave to this filthy poison. I wish i had read this book earlier to understand why i really smoked. This book is a great eye opener, what i dont understand though is that the people we elect as our government can ban the sales of cigarettes and take them off the market all together, i dont see why they dont do that if it’s the biggest killer. Anyways that’s a different debate…for now thankyou Mr Carr for setting me free from my slavery to cigarettes. I will never miss them ever again.

Hello, Mr. Carr & Staff!
I quit with the help of your book, which I got from my local public library branch, so it was free.
Your excellent system came to my attention via public radio, more specifically KPFK 90.7 FM, a very independent radio station that airs a lot of conscious and helpful material. When I first heard how it works and scanned a copy of your flagship title, I was not smoking. I was in the second longest nonsmoking period in my life, 18 years. I had stopped once during an early relationship, then again after meeting my wife. Each time I had just decided to stop and did so without counseling or patches, gum or whatever chemical remedies people try. Just plain said enough.
So when I heard about Easyway, I half wished I were still smoking just so I could experience the benefit of using your system. Well, almost a year ago I got my wish. I’d separated from my wife and begun smoking one cigarette every few days, then gradually once a day, sometimes two or three. I hated the smell it left behind and the way it made me jittery and dizzy, but because I did it during meditative periods while contemplating my situation, somehow it seemed justifiable. I recognized that some kind of psychological rewind was happening: my desire to smoke stopped when I thought it would jeopardize my budding relationship and then was waiting for me 18 years later, the moment I was “free” to continue. Scary and almost reptilian. So I realized what was happening and got your book from the library. I followed Mr. Carr’s advice to smoke as I read and it only took me 18 or 20 pages to get it and quit. Just like magic.
What else can I say except thank you!! I was by no means a heavy smoker, ever, at the peak of my usage I was also ironically in the peak of youth in my twenties. That was also the period when I wasn’t playing soccer, which I have happily been playing weekly again since ’98. I love it and need my health and lung capacity for sure. So it is wonderful to know that you are there for me and everyone else who truly wants to stop. I tell everyone who ever tells me about a friend or relative who wants to stop that you are the most effective solution I know.
Thank you for sharing your knowledge with the slaves to nicotine out there.

Hello Mr Carr, & everyone involved with spreading your Easy Way to stop smoking via publications, clinics etc
Hooray! It’s Day 3 & I’m SMOKE-FREE!
I was a casual smoker for about 20 years. I started aged about 40, during a period of depression, which at that time was undiagnosed. I was ‘secret smoker’ for years, then gradually ‘came out’ as smoker at work, with certain friends & eventually to family, & at the same time smoked more often every day. My family are all healthcare professionals & were devastated. They tried to talk to me about it & to suggest ways to stop with their support & help, but, weirdly, I resisted every approach, & risked the deterioration of my relationships with them.
My husband gave me your book a few years ago, having heard that it helped a friend, a heavy smoker, to stop. It remained unread until yesterday! I’d had an epiphany the evening before & very definitely smoked my last cigarette. Your book, your approach & your deep understanding of the reasons why otherwise savvy & strong people smoke are exactly what I’ve needed to support me in my decision.
Thank you so much. I’m now looking forward to living, loving & singing (!) to the max for the rest of my life!.

Thank you! About three and a half years ago, I read the easy way to stop smoking, quit smoking, I felt everything you talked about. Now, a couple of minutes ago, I finished reading the easy way to stop drinking. I do not like, but still decided to drink the last glass. It was brandy who wanted to drink in one gulp, but to make sure I try to taste it. I vomited and I felt myself sorry for all this time I zašorennaâ the horse is not seen the truth. Thank you! Now I am free!
Около трех с половиной лет назад, я , прочитав легкий способ бросить курить, перестал курить, я почувствовал все о чем Вы говорили.
Сейчас, пару минут назад, я дочитал легкий способ бросить пить. Я не хотел, но все таки решил выпить последний бокал. Это был коньяк, который хотел выпить залпом, но чтоб убедиться, я распробовать решил его вкус. Меня вырвало и мне стало себя жаль, за то что все это время я как зашоренная лошадь не видел правды.
Спасибо ! Теперь я свободен!
I stopped smoking and lost weight!
I was sick and tired and feed up of smoking even though I loved it and felt it was just part of me. I had a steady 10 day habit, I started when I was 16 and at 32 had too many years under my belt- in fact I don’t think I had been as consistent at anything other than eating and sleeping than I had been at smoking. Which has always made it a psycological challenge to give up.
After I read the book I semi-ceremoniously extinguished out my last cigarette under the tap. I was convinced it was over. I was very clear in communicating that I was a no smoker the next morning to everyone I knew- rather than say that I was trying to give up. I also was extremely careful to communicate that I wasn’t giving up but was rather gaining and I took the time to recognize and acknowledge every craving, usually with amusement.
Many colleagues who were fitness and beauty conscious expressed their own concerns of giving up as they would gain weight- they also expressed a concern for my own looks. At 5ft 2 and 66.4kg I was not visually too overweight however any further gain would have had big impact on my confidence and health I am sure.
I often thought and did start rewarding myself with sweets and other foods for not smoking and then I realized something invaluable from the book, just like I used to use cigarettes to reward myself in stressful situations, so I was also using food. And the supermarkets and advertising industry was responsible for this. Go on treat yourself!
There is a gem within the book that teaches one to respect yourself and be clear and rational in behavioral choices. I started thinking harder about my eating habits and researching ingredients, the food industry and agriculture- all of which I had a good background knowledge on. However I had previously not been in the right state to switch my habits.
The new found respect I gained for myself from not smoking- and the techniques within the book enabled me to switch to a pure whole food diet and has resulted in a weight loss of 6.4 kg within 8 weeks with no dieting or exercise. In fact I feel fuller, look healthier and have no desire for cigarettes or for processed foods, or foods containing sugar, I can’t even chew gum anymore as its too artificial. I am amazed, the funny thing is that something so fundamental has switched in my brain that I know it’s not temporary, its a full lifestyle change. This week i even started Pilates to become even further intune with my body.
I stopped stopped smoking by going cold turkey- I stopped eating sugars, grains and unprouncable strange ingredients cold turkey too. Its easier than you can imagine- because there are no excuses. I do apply the 80/20 rule loosely to my diet allowing for 20% of food choices to be other than pure whole foods, so that I don’t become anti-social or resentful- however I still have no desire to go of course and have found it efortless to stick to without making a hard conscious effort.
Stopping smoking can be a huge catalyst for other lifestyle improvements.
Gap in the Market I don’t think I am particularly unique and if I can stop smoking and loose weight and become generally more healthy- I know that other can to. I think there is a large community of female smokers that continue to smoke for weight reasons. I wondered if you may invest some time in investigating the possibilities of a book called The Easy way to stop smoking and lose weight! know that you have a separate diet book, however as the readers of the smoking book are all so convinced that they will stop smoking after reading the book- it would be ideal to introduce some techniques for losing weight
I either love or usually hate the smell of cigarette smoke when it wafts in my direction, and it always reminds me of how grateful I am to you and your book.
Many thanks and I’ll continue to recommend you and prove that you can stop smoking and lose weight easily
Я благодарен что помогли осознать всю правду о курении и его вреде. Спасибо Аллену Карру за то что я бросил курить!
I had tried every method to give up smoking but always went back – even after a year. In desperatation I read the Easyway book. That was 3.5 years ago. I’m still very happy with being a non-smoker, never have the slightest hankering to have a puff and would recommend this to anyone. It really was easy.

I have been smoke free for 4 months!!! I have never felt better or more relaxed in my entire life. I feel like I have been reborn into a stronger more confident person.
I started smoking when I was 12 and like any other teenager did not think addiction could happen to me. When I finally did get addicted I never lied to myself or others that I was not, however; I did think that i “loved” smoking and that that was why I did it.
I had been instructed by a long time friend to read the Easyway to Quit Smoking after he had read it and quit instatnly. We both had in the past talked about how we never would quit becasue we loved it so much and because the social aspect was too hard to loose.
I wasn’t ready to quit at the time and shunned the book. I purchased it out of pressure and started reading. I read maybe half of the book while chain smoking and then put it on my bookshelf. A few months later it dawned on me that I would be smoking for close to half of my life. I then picked up the book with determination and finished reading it.
I stopped smoking before I finished the book. Allan Carr’s Easyway changed my life. I will never ever forget what this book did for me.
My family and friends could not beleive it and some still do not beleive it. I know for a fact that I will never pick up another cigarette again.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
It’s day 2 and I cannot believe I have an inbuilt resolve to continue. Every time I feel than niggling yearning feeling I think of it as 5% and talk myself through it and it passes. I am looking forward to the dawn of each new day, knowing tomorrow is my third day of abstinence and with each passing day, it becomes easier and I can pat myself on the back for succeeding (and buy myself some new shoes with the money I have saved!!) Thank you Allen Carr Easyway! Gill

I’ll admit I was one of those people who thought ‘Just one cigarette…’. I orginally gave up earlier this year and was successful for about 6 months. Then I went out with friends and thought, well one cigarette wont hurt… It did however, and as the book states, I was back smoking the same amount a day as I did before. How depressing. Not only was I back smoking but I was angry with myself, and wondered how I’d managed to get back to that state. When I came to read the book again, I was sceptical and thought it wouldnt work a second time around, because I knew the theory and couldn’t give up by myself. I just knew I didn’t want to smoke anymore and couldn’t stand the thought of doing it my whole life. I read the book again (with the same feeling of trepidation that I did the first time around) and have been an extremely happy non-smoker ever since. Unlike last time where I said to myself “I’m allowed one on special occasions”, I know that if I ever smoke again, it’ll be forever. I’m also very excited by the prospect of never having to smoke again, not even casually, not even ‘just one’. Allen Carr’s book is the best thing if you want to give up and enjoy it! Can’t recommend it enough.

I wrote my testimonial back on the 15th April 2012, just an update to say, I’m still smoke free and will never go back to having to smoke. I love being a non smoker and enjoy meals and drinks and conversations so much more as I’m no longer thinking … must have a fag. Stopped smoking in Feb 2012 after smoking for nearly 30 years. I drink a lot of tea now, but as a side effect that’s no big deal. Read this book, it really works.
Mark Jones said,
I’m from Worthing in the UK and I started smoking when I was 18 as a New Years resolution (how ridiculous is that?). I’m 43 now and have spent the last 10 or 12 years desperately but unsuccessfully trying to stop. My father was a smoker and suffered a big heart attack at 38 followed by a triple bypass, so as I approached 40 I was getting more and more desperate to stop. My most successful attempts were with nicotine lozenges, but I never managed to get off of them and always ended up back on the cigarettes without completely quitting nicotine in any form. Two years ago tomorrow, however, (26th Sept 2010) I started yet another lozenge based attempt at stopping smoking and was doing ok. I went 6 months without a cigarette but could not make the jump to completely stopping nicotine intake. At this point a friend handed me a copy of Easyway saying “you’re doomed to failure on those lozenges mate, read this, it’s the way forward”. For the purposes of reading the book, I carried on sucking the lozenges whilst reading instead of carrying on smoking as Allen Carr suggests. I drive a cab for a living and so have plenty of time to read in between customers and I ploughed through it in 2 days. 3 quarters of the way through the book I was itching to bin my lozenges but carried on sucking them till I’d finished the last page. What can I say? IT IS SO EASY!!! I threw away all my lozenges and have never looked back. All I wanted was to be able to feel normal without having to smoke a cigarette to achieve it, and that goal was almost instantly achieved. Allen Carr promises at the start of the book that you will be a HAPPY ex smoker for the rest of your life and that you’ll even enjoy the process. WOW, was he right. His book has had such an effect on my life that I wish he was still alive so that i could write to him and thank him personally. Three days in, i went away for a couple of nights with two friends who both smoke and when they got up between courses at a restaurant to go out for a fag, i was completely happy to remain inside. It’s 2 years tomorrow since i smoked that last cigarette and will always be the anniversary date that I celebrate, but I wouldn’t have made it had I not read Easyway 6 months later. I stopped despite of the lozenges, not beacause of them. Thankyou Allen Carr, I honestly believe they should posthumously award you a Nobel Prize or Knighthood or something similar to acknowledge your service to mankind. I really do feel I owe my life to you.

When I was asked to share my experience using the easy-way method I couldn’t wait to tell everyone my side. I like many others, began smoking at an early age of 11 years old. I also come from a background of tobacco farmers and believed that if we condone selling of this product, it was ok for me to smoke. After all, what could my family possibly say in its defense? Little did I know my attitude and belief system was part of the brainwashing that kept me smoking for the next 33 years. Each time I got in my car, finished my dinner, or had to confront stress- my old friend the cigarette was there. So not only did I instill this belief system and brainwashing, I believed it was my right to fight against a system that was taking my families lively hood away, I truly believed as a 6th generation tobacco farmer it was my God given right to smoke, this could have been farthest from the truth. The truth was it was just another reasoning I gave myself to continue on with a habit that was killing me. I knew the chemicals, fertilizers and trash from our floors where going into the product, but day after day I still continued to smoke. My excuses for lighting up this poison was the same as many smokers- it relaxed me, it was my choice, I cannot enjoy outings without it or I deserved it on my breaks. Slowly I was talking myself into a life of ill health and smelling bad. I never looked at the real reasons why I should quit only why I needed to smoke. After many attempts using gum, going cold turkey and finally the expensive support groups/classes held at my local hospital I began to research online effective methods to quit, I ran across Allen Carr’s method and purchased the book on CD. I soon realized the easy-way was different. It didn’t use nicotine based aids to kick the nicotine addiction or willpower that is required in support groups. The easy-way removed the brainwashing and replaced my thinking with the truth. The truth is, I didn’t need cigarettes to complete my life and the first step was changing how I viewed smoking. It was like a light going off in my head. It was me; it was my attitude that kept me locked into smoking all these years. After listening to the Easy-Way CD, I was ready to change my attitude, remove the brainwashing and recover my life as a NON-SMOKER. Today I am approaching my seconded year of being a non-smoker and I couldn’t be healthier happier. I now know that all of my past reasoning was a trap to keep me hooked into a device that was killing me; I was my own worst enemy. Now, I am free thanks to the life saving methods of Allen Carr’s Easy-Way method. Thank you for saving my life!!

I have been a smoker since I was 10 years old. I started because I could buy them for kids that were a couple of grades higher than me, so it was super cool to have older kids have to ask you to buy them cigarettes. I am now 32 years old and I finally quit. Thanks to Allen Carr’s ‘EASYWAY to quit smoking’, I am now a nonsmoker. He was right on when he talked about how it is an addiction, and that it is a underestimated addiction that poeple don’t think is a big deal. Well, it’s a huge deal and kills more poeple than all of the other drugs combined. Thank you Allen Carr for fixing my brain and helping me to fix the rest of my life. I wished I could say it is a “self-help” book, but it is not. He helps you to help yourself. Thank you!
A friend gave me this book a few years ago after her husband used it to successfully quit. I skimmed through it with an idea that this slant on quitting was different however I wasn’t ready. I didn’t want to quit or at least that’s what I told myself. Denial is an amazing thing. Then of course you are faced with regular hits of reality – people are dying because of smoking, I am aging quicker than my peers, I may be losing business because I’m smoking … there was nothing positive to say and the denial was getting harder.
The day arrived. I was sick, housebound for a few days and facing the perfect opportunity to quit. I picked up the book in the morning, had my last cigarette that evening and kept reading for 3 days while going through the adjustment.
It’s been two weeks and I hardly remember smoking. I am not using any substitutes and making sure to exercise daily to avoid weight gain and constipation.
As promised – quitting is easy. I only need to remember when that cue strikes to think of smoking that there’s this little dude in the pit of my stomach demanding I pick up a cigarette and feed him. I laugh and let him know I am in charge and he will be vanishing as every day passes.
I live in Wolfville Nova Scotia Canada and am proud to be a non-smoker. Thank you!!!

The book is a bible for those who want to stop smoking. Allen Carr should be made a Saint. I used champix to help me stop smoking, however, I would never have done it without Allens “Easy Way to Stop Smoking Book”, God Bless Him

I had to write you as I approach my 2nd year of stop smoking using the Allen Carr method. On 10-10-10 I snuffed out my final and last cigarette. I am a non-smoker and I couldn’t feel better. You promised I wouldn’t have with-draw pangs, craving and other desires that come with not smoking. Not only have I quit for life, but I also helped my closest friends to finally give up their smoking habits using your method. The amazing thing in using your method is the spark it creates in other parts of my life. Because I stop smoking, I can breathe which makes hiking and exercise very pleasurable. It is amazing what your method has done for me and I hope I am not to forward by saying- I love you, you saved my life.
10 years ago today I finished reading Allen’s book. I smoked 40 a day and never thought that I would be able to stop smoking. Well it’s been 10 years and I haven’t smoked since. Thank you so much.

I just wanted to tell you the easy method works fine , an i stopped smoking for more than a week and i fell great . I just want to thank Mr. Alen Carr for the book , it is great !
11 weeks smoke free and counting. I was CONVINCED while reading the book that I would be in the 5% of unsuccessful readers, because I didn’t feel any huge WOW moments as I read onward. But amazingly enough, after reading my last page… I went and had that last cigarette, threw out the rest of my nearly full pack (fully believing I’d be fishing them back out in under 4 hours) and never-looked-back. No stress. No withdrawals. No anxiety. Nothing. I know this time, I will never ever smoke again. Mr. Carr, there are no words that exist in the English language that could ever accurately convey the level of gratitude I feel toward you for helping me break free from that prison.

I was one of those who had this book for 4 or more years and despite starting it, kept putting it aside as I was scared of stopping smoking. How daft!
I read it cover to cover last week in one day and haven’t looked back since. I actually threw away my cigarettes and lighter before i finished the book. I could not recommend this book higher..Amazing!
Without shock-tactics,hypnotherapy or con tricks, this book just asks you to adjust your mind set and see what your addiction for what it is. I have smoked for 18 years and not only do i know now i never will again I am even after 3 days, thoroughly enjoying and feeling the benefits of stopping.
If you want to stop smoking you HAVE to read this book..what do you have to lose?
Just the same with many others I’m sure, I was sceptical about how merely reading a book could help me quit my 20 year addiction. However, I knew I had to stop once and for all as I could no longer kid myself about the possibilities of developing one of the many fatal diseases caused by smoking.
For me, there were two points which Allen mentioned that really hit home and made me “click”. The first was when Allen dispelled the myth about the difficulty in quitting smoking (really easy) by comparing it with training yourself to run a mile in under four minutes (excruciatingly difficult). The second was when he gave an example on the illusions of pleasure/crutch from nicotine, by describing the sense of relief from taking off a pair of tight and uncomfortable shoes after wearing them for a day!
Although I’m only on day 56, I just KNOW that I’ll never inhale the filth into my lungs ever again. I’m certain that your method will continue to save millions!! Thank you ever so much Mr. Carr!!
16 days without smoking. Funny thing.. I know I’m not gonna smoke again, but nobody seems to believe me or understand it :)) Thank you Mr. Carr for the amazing book. I just wish i didn’t get scared the first time i tried to read it, and dropped it for 2 (!) years…
I am about to hit 30, and was smoking for 14 years of my life, determind not to make it 15 i.e. half of my life! So in January I locked myself in a room for a day and read this book. I’ve been a non-smoker ever since. Shocked at how easy it has been, and how free I now feel. Has given me such a sense of achievement and feels like a weight has been lifted from my shoulders. I’m not fit, healthy and happier than I’ve ever been. Thank you so much, I can’t tell you how appreciative I am of this book, it has changed my life. All the best to others who try it :)

After 20+ years of being a smoker I can proudly say that I am a non-smoker all because of Allen Carrs Easyway method! I am on day 22 now and feel quite confident that I will never ever smoke again!!!
I honestly have no idea how it worked or why it was so easy. But it DID! I have tried to quit many times before using a variety of methods including zyban, chantix, the patch, hypnosis, accupuncture, and willpower…. And none of them worked! I stopped trying over the pas few years concluding that I just had an addictive personality and that I was destined to a life as a smoker! Then a couple of months ago I met a stranger at a party who told me about how she and all of her friends quit using the Easyway method. I thought what the heck…I’ll give it a try. I read the book over the course of several weeks and I did quit smoking for only a day. But I was not discouraged. For some reason I could tell that this method was going to work. I needed to attend a seminar, I thought. But there were no seminars nearby so I signed up for the webcast. I watched the webcast in one sitting and that was all it took! I have been smoke free ever since!
Thank you Allen Carr for rescuing me from that nasty habit. I am forever grateful to you!!!!
I am free now to do whatever I want to do!!
I smoked for 18 years. I never thought I’d quit. I thought I enjoyed it. I identified myself as a smoker more than perhaps anything else. I began to read ‘The Only Way To Stop Smoking Permanently’, got scared that if I didn’t quit after that, I never would (or I wasn’t ready to lose what I believed was a major part of my personality). So I put the book down for 6 months. When I felt ready I finished it, smoking my last cigarette on December 7th, 2004. I’ve not wanted (in waking life) to smoke since.
I think the reason more healthcare professionals don’t direct people straight to Allen Carr’s books etc. is that the method encourages one to not substitute one addiction with another. How can the pharmaceuticals make money that way?!
Thank you, Mr. Carr and all who continue your brilliant work. X
Carlee Marie said,
This beautiful book has helped me so in so many ways, i am forever grateful that eventually (haha) fate let me find it! As i was reading the book i recognized many other problems i was having in my life. As i read and i smoked, i absorbed the words and reflected on my life replacing the words written in the book with issues i was trying to overcome in my head. I thought about Allen Carrs words frequently, daily, whilst contemplating why i am the way that i am, and why do i think and act the way i do (i finished the book over a period of 3 weeks, partly because my attention had to be devoted to my baby)!
Then, when i finally finished the book and extinguished my final cigarette, i felt this strong feeling to ACTUALLY change my entire state of mind…and i have done it! I feel so proud of myself! I feel more confident; i used to be afraid to fight for myself and my rights but now i feel like i could talk rationally and reasonably (haha!) to anybody who i feel has a problem with me or my morals. I also feel more healthier; i used to hear blood pumping in my head when i stood up quickly, or if i was in the shower too long, or standing in one position for too long. I breathe better, more deeply; all the minor illnesses i half noticed but worried about have completely disappeared! i could rant all day about how much this lovely, worthy book has changed my life! But i bet that would make you change your mind about reading it hahaha!
The information inside the book isn’t meant to hurt, embarrass or insult you, its only written in a way to make you see the truth, and to make you confront yourself and your real issues… read it with an open mind… and with an open heart!
Happiness and serenity will be found in both of these places when you put your amazingly wonderful human mind to it!!! happy reading people!
Thanks again for my personal epiphany, i’ve never been more happier and more appreciative in my life than i am right now __ xxx
I just wanted to say, keep up the good work!! I came across Mr. Carr’s audio book online. It is the best thing that has ever happened to me.
I just wanted to thank you for the top up seminar you gave me last week. The penny really dropped when I got home and the thing that kept going back through my mind was when you said that last time I’d not got all of it and not really understood that cigarettes really gave me nothing – even when I was totally stressed! I’ve got that now so thank you very much indeed – you do an amazing job, but I’m sure you know that!
Feel so happy to be Free from this nonsense habit of smoking…its been almost 10 weeks now!
Thanx to Allen Carr.
I got the book online, and read it over 3 days, and am a non smoker since then (9th Jul 2012). I feel i have wasted 18 years of my life when i was a smoker forget the money part…i could have lived a more complete and fuller life.
I get a sense of pride being a non smoker, i feel i look better, I definitly donot stink like an ash-try and most importantly, I feel more energetic and am in positive frame of mind. I am handling workload & stress much much better. I have become more efficient at work and also am giving a good helping hand to my wife at home, spending more time with kids. Earlier used to always think about my next smoke, WHEN & WHERE.
I just donot feel exhausted/ fatigue, instead feel more confident and energetic, am already walking 8 kms / day and 1 km run. Am up by 0500 hrs. everyday..look forward to the day and life.

I read the smoking book while in alcohol detox, sold my smokes and purchased the alcohol book. That was 3 years ago. The hardest part is you find yourself applying the process to all things in your life simply because you now observe reality from a new perspective. I’m grateful for my freedom.Brent

I have successfully stopped since the 5th of February this year after 15 years, and numerous attempts at N.R.T. I have been recommending the book to as many people as I possibly can to help them stop, some have and some haven’t…yet!
I read Allen Carr’s book 3 years ago and it didn’t work. I still could not quit smoking. I told myself to read it again. I did, a year later. I read the book a 2nd time (but did not finish it) and told myself I was done! I went to work the next day (March 7th), and asked a coworker for a cigarette. I ended up smoking all day. I arrived home, completely disgusted by myself, grabbed my “hidden” pack of cigarettes and began to finish Mr. Carr’s book. I smoked a few cigarettes while reading and finally and truly finished the book. I sat there and smoked one more cigarette that night, slowly, taking my time, thinking hard about the feeling of smoking and quitting. I finished the cigarette, took the last cigarette I had out of the box, went up to my boyfriend and told him that I am finished! That I was completely done smoking and that I will never ever smoke again. He and I held the last cigarette in our hands and broke it in half.
Today, September 7th, has been a year and a half since I quit smoking.
Thank you Mr. Allen Carr for your words of wisdom, your kindness to help others, your “Easyway to Quit Smoking”. You will never be forgotten.

I originally smoked for ten years, got married & quit for 18 yrs. Then when I got separated, I smoked again for 11 yrs. I tried to quit drinking and smoking very hard for over 2 yrs., was able to quit drinking but the cigarette quitting ranged in time frames of 2 to 3 days to the longest time-frame, 17 days. I thought I had made it after 17 days, but no. I quit buying cartons which was cheaper because every pack was the last one-NOT. One of my clients was advised to quit smoking so that her bones would heal and she had Allen Carr’s book. I went to the library and checked it out and my first smoke-free day was 4-24-12 and I have not pined for cigarettes since, unlike other methods where you quit but still want them. I don’t understand why everyone in the world who smokes and wants to quit hasn’t been made aware of this method.
It’s been almost 3 months since my last cigarette!
I know that i will never smoke again.
I feel healthy, energetic and beautiful!
I love Allen Carr and his great and clean mind!

read the book last year and it didn’t do the click to stop smoking. read the book again this year and yes i’m free from sigarettes for 1 week now and i love it not to be independent any more. like you said you will feel free. thank you.
WOW !!!!! Well I was hopeful but sceptical when I turned up that Saturday morning, why would I not be, there had not been one single day, rain or shine, in sickness or health that I had not had a drink over the last 22 years, honestly (apart of course the 5 days I spent in the Priory a couple of years ago)
At the end of the day when you went round the room and asked us all individually how we were feeling. I sat mid way, if you remember, in the middle of the hope full semi circle of 12!!. I was a bit concerned as my 6 piers before me gave you answers of positive joy and declarations of bliss full future hope. When asked, I said that I was tear full and had a sense of great loss ( more than losing a wallet but closer to that of a loved one ) At the time I took this as a possible bad omen for my own future and further nurtured that seed of doubt, my biggest fear that life as I new it was over ( I’m starting to realize the poignant truth in that! ) that alcohol free surmounted to fun free.
That first night on Saturday was OK Sunday was better, the next day was even better and so on. I have achieved both, mentally and physically, in the last 6 days the equivalent too the last 6 months, or maybe much more.
I am beginning to have that wonderful notion you so cunningly planted in my mind that alcohol has no benefit to me ( unless, which so fantastically was my perception pre Carr that feeling like shit, looking shit and all the other usual suspects are indeed benefits) I am having fun, a sense of good and well being anyway. Rome wasn’t built in a day! I’m sure ( hope ) that I don’t write these words too soon. I do know the misery that was a big part of my life be for took copious and determined amounts of energy and will power to achieve, its going to be interesting to see how I re direct, its got to go somewhere!!
Anyway It just leaves me to say a heart felt and sincere THANK YOU
PS Will see you in October for Stop Smocking The Easy Way!!

Ciao to you all from Italy rome. My English is not that special,I hope you can understand me while explaining how I stopped smoking. Now I’m 50 years old. I ve smoked for about 30 years ,in the last 15 years I smoked about 30/40 cigarettes x day. I decided to stop smoking some years ago but without success.I ve never stopped smoking also if I was troubling to quit. Some other people, friends at least I heard they stopped for 1 or 2 months or 1 or 2 years… I never stopped.I ve smoked every day. For a circumstance I ve purchased the Allen’s Easy way Book. Well I tell you the steps ,the way I stopped smoking. I ve read the first 30 0r 40 book’s pages… I felt that it was enough ,but really enough to stop smoking. The book suggested me to continue smoking while reading, in the same period I was reading another book ,a romanzo, then I put apart the Allen’s book and promised to myself to finish to read it when I ll had finished the romanzo .But when I finished to read the romanzo ,nothing happened ,but my brain,my body,my hands,my muscles were spinning with those 30/40 Allen’s pages.It was October and I take more time to finish to read the easyway book and overall to quit smoking ..I made another promise :to read it and quit smoking on my 50th birthday on march 5th, the I had ahead about 5 months. The end is that I read the last part of the Easy way Book the last week and finish to read it on march 2th ,THE MARCH 3th at 7am I ve broken my last cigarette. The truth is that the EASYWAY BOOK cannot do miracles.You read it and YOU CAN MAKE A MIRACLE.The book give not you a method, YOU CAN FIND NOW YOUR HOW&WHY METHOD.Personally for me it has been a MIRACLE, finished to read it in my thoutghs in my thinking in my brain I ve had the possibility TO FELL A LIGTH- NOT TO SEE A LIGTH- REPEAT : I FELT A LIGTH, call it illumination or miracle ,NOW that LIGTH IS ALWAYS ON, like an opened door that was closed before.IT IS ALWAYS ON!!! Now I would like to speak you for days but now I m laughing ,and I can’t ..I’m a mature man with wife and one boy…I’m happy and miracled man OR BETTER ILLUMINATED! My suggestion for who wants stop smoking is to DO NOT FIND METHODS, FIND THE LIGTH IN YOU. KISS KISS KISS TO YOU ALL. THANK YOU STEVE
I Had been strugling for a few years with smoking and knew that i always wanted to give them up. It may sound strange but i was actually afraid to give them up, as i had given them up years earlier using willpower which was a total nightmare. I was still scared even while reading the book,and was petrified that i would not be able to actually do it. But when it came to my final cigarette i knew i was ready. I could not believe how easy it has been to break the addiction to nicotine. I would like to thank Allen Carr and his team for this prescious gift that has been given to the world.
I feel great and have allot of extra money.
Best of Luck

Hurray, I am a happy non-smoker! Its been 4 days and I feel amazing!
Been smoking almost 2 packs a day for 10 years, and a pack a day 8 years before that.
I never thought it would be this easy to stop. I have been wanting to quit for the last 5 years or so, but failed miserably every time I tried… which in fact culminated in starting again with a vengeance! All the psychological traps that are highlighted in the book are spot on! I had never thought of it that way till my eyes were opened, to basically “reprogram” my brain… which seriously, was much easier than i thought it would be.
Kudos to Allen Carr and all the foundation stands for! All my “smoking buddies” have been given a copy, a special gift from me. :-)

I want to thank your center and all the people who work there for what you do! My husband and I gave up smoking with the help of Allen Carr’s methodology, and this turned out to be really EASY! Thank you!
I loved your book and thought It a truly inspiring read. My story is a little different from that of the usual smoker.
I have been a heavy smoker since I was about 13. I am now 23 and have quit smoking for about three weeks. My main concern was having pre mature wrinkles, hence decided to stop.
I have many friends who are norwegan and continue to snus.
Hence when I gave up smoking, I thought I needed a way to feed “the little monster”.
Your book has completely undone my brain washing and I now have a better form of brain washing whereby every time I feel a craving coming on. I think “this is great, this craving” and relish in the feeling of wanting a cigarette or another snus.
I completely agree with what’s the point of curing a addiction with the addictive substance. Hence your book really helped me to quit and now I can’t be bothered to smoke because it is utterly pointless.
I have now spent the money on anti wrinkle creams in order to get back my fresh faced complexion!
Score all around for me!
I would like to thank Allen Carr Foundation and the Easyway Method for breaking my 12 yr. old habit, I completed the book today, and I am feeling completely fre from the Nicotine addiction.

Im a NewZealander living in Australia and Allen Carr’s method has saved my life. I tried the method a few years ago and there wasn’t something I fully understood and it was inevitable I started smoking again. I have however re-read the book and this time understood everything. Suddenly everything was clear. It was like suddenly everything was clear. What he says is true. No withdrawals, no overeating, no will power, it is that easy and enjoyable. I keep feeling better everyday!
I have since also recently read the “Easyweigh to Lose Weight” by Allen Carr and have lost 2.5kgs in the first 8 days and I havent exercised or dieted. I have been overweight all my life and Allen Carrs method has really blown me away. I feel like I’m liberated from the prison I have been in for so many years.
Although after reading both these books I have lost my desire to drink alcohol also, I see there is a book he has written about controlling drinking and also getting out of debt which I want to read too. Me and my Wife have a baby on the way and I have hope I will be around for many years to enjoy a happy life with my family.
I dont know if Allen Carr actually realised what he had discovered. His methods should be used to treat all forms of addiction and self destructive behaviours.
