“Some of my patients who successfully quit smoking after reading Allen Carr’s book and reports from Occupational Physicians about Allen Carr’s Easyway seminars/clinics made me curious.
First I decided to evaluate the seminars that were presented to employees in their workplaces over a period of 4 months. Successful quitters developed better mental and general health, vitality, physical and social functioning. I was amazed also about the unusually high quit rate after a single intervention: The 1 year quit rate was 40% (worst case assumption) to 55% (best estimate).
To control the results in a different setting and for a longer period of time I decided for a second cohort study in a large steel plant, where the occupational physicians were willing to make the follow up after the seminar by telephone over a mean of 3 years. Of 510 persons 51.4% reported continuing abstinence.
In a random sample of respondents cotinine concentration in urine was measured, showing agreement with smoking history. Of all persons interviewed 50.9% reported long-term abstinence.
Overall the success rates of Allen Carr’s Easyway seminars in the occupational setting exceeded those achieved by other methods. Every second smoker motivated to participate seems to be able to quit, even without medication, and to stay abstinent.”

“his success rate was such that, when budgets allow, we continue to use (Allen Carr’s) Easyway for work with specific groups and individuals.”
Dr Anil Visa BSc, MBBch., FRCA, Consultant – Royal Hospitals NHS Trust – Royal London Hospital
“I have observed Allen Carr’s Easyway method at first hand and have found it to be very successful and I wholeheartedly support it as an effective way to quit smoking.”
Dr William Green, Head of Psychiatric Dept, Matilda Hospital, Hong Kong
“It is a remarkable fact that Allen Carr, on his own admission a non-professional in behaviour modification, should have succeeded where countless psychologists and psychiatrists holding postgraduate qualifications have failed, in formulating a simple and effective way to stop smoking.”
Dr Martin Jarvis, Principle Scientist, Imperial Cancer Research
Fund and Reader in Health Psychology, University College London
“…I am more than happy to testify to Allen Carr’s enduring involvement and to recognise the value of the kind of behavioural and cognitive support he provides.”
Dr PM Bray MB CH.b., MRCGP
“I was really impressed by the method. In spite of the Allen Carr (Easyway) organisation’s success and fame, there were no gimmicks and the professional approach was something a GP could readily respect. I would be happy to give a medical endorsement of the method to anyone.”
Dr. Ricardo Gonzalez, National Coordinator Medical Services, Schweppes
“The success rates you achieve (between 75% and 80%) are far in excess of anything known to me or my colleagues. I will therefore happily continue to recommend Allen Carr’s Easyway both professionally and personally.”
Dr. Helmut Csillag, M.D., voestalpine Stahl GmbH – Linz, Austria
“The program has been a great success at voestalpine in Linz. We had a success rate after one year of 80%. Our study evaluated smoking cessation seminars in the occupational setting by a telephone survey on average 3 years after the seminar. Of the 510 persons 51.4 % said they were still non-smokers while 48.6 % declared to be smoking again. This long term success you will not get by any other method.”
