More About the Author

Allen Carr was an accountant and smoked 100 cigarettes a day until he gave up and wrote this bestselling book. He has built a hugely successful network of stop-smoking clinics across the world and is the author of "The Only Way to Stop Smoking," "How to Stop Your Child Smoking," "The Easy Way to Enjoy Flying" and "The Easyweigh to Lose Weight." In 2004 Allen published his bestselling autobiography "Packing It In" (Michael Joseph). He was diagnosed with lung cancer in the summer of 2006 and died in November of the same year. It seems likely that the years he spent curing smokers in smoke-filled sessions at his clinics must have contributed to this illness, but Allen Carr remained positive; 'Given that I am informed that I have cured at least 10 million smokers on a conservative estimation, it's a price worth paying.'

I was very sceptical of this book, but read it after two of my friends read it and quit.

The pages of this book break down smoking and the addiction to nicotine in a totally different way.

I'm a non-smoker!" This is key: you're supposed to smoke the whole time you read the book.

I didn't want to quit. I needed to quit. I bought the book and because I didn't want to quit I put it away until the cough was, quite simply, embarrassing. Then I thought, with this huge tug-of-war going on (I don't want to quit but I must quit for my health!), let's see if it's as easy as he says it is.
He deals first with the fear. I NEVER even tried to quit using 'willpower' before because of the fear. I was just too terrified of losing my friend, my companion, and all my coffee/cigarette rituals. He immediately acknowledged that we all think like that. But in fact we have invented these rituals as ceremonies for our next "hit".
He points out that we don't feel normal any more unless we're smoking because we are drug addicts and in a constant state of withdrawal that makes us feel empty and insecure and which can only be cured by another 'hit'. That nicotine, far from relaxing us in reality, actually makes us anxious because of what it does to the nervous system over time. But the 'hit' creates the illusion of relaxation because it's so much better than the feelings during withdrawal!
He points out a lot more and does it gently, rationally, entertainingly and never ONCE tries to scare us. And by the time I had finished the book I really was ready to jump to the other side of that proverbial line and say, "Yippee! I'm a non-smoker!"
This is key: you're supposed to smoke the whole time you read the book. So I'm sure a lot of people read really slooooowly. That's not a bad thing, that's a good thing. This is a book you want to literally live with for a few days, focus on it, re-read it again if you need to, and let it really sink in so it can change your thinking.

I was very sceptical of this book, but read it after two of my friends read it and quit. I can tell you right now -it works. You quit without any cravings, any pain, any weight gain.

There is no sensationalism -nothing about lung cancer, strokes and the usual fear tactics used to try and stop people from smoking (hey -they don't work anyway!).

By the end of this book, something inside you will have shifted, you will throw away your cigarettes without a backwards glance -free at last, forever.

Unbelievable. I was a skeptical, heavy smoker for more than 20 years, and I've been quit now for more than two months. I tried and did not quit with many other methods.

Allen's way WAS EASY. I swear. I've NEVER written a book review before, but felt compelled to share with others. In fact, I've even bought four other copies for friends.

I had no withdrawals, no regrets and no cravings. I kept the ideas he said to keep in mind, and like magic, I quit and loved every moment of it. He tought me how to be and think like a non-smoker again (as we all are born). It does feel more natural.

The key? Knowing, feeling and believing (which I found out was true) that being and feeling like a non-smoker, is waaaaaaaaaaay better than how I 'though' smoking made me feel (good). I can't explain any more than that, but it did change my thinking dramatically.

He takes the way we all as smokers 'think' about ourselves and our smoking, and turns quitting into a positive. Not the negative that most smokers who want to quit, think of it as. By the time you're half way through the book, you are joyful at the excitement you have at how great you're going to feel when you quit. And it just continues!

AND I DO FEEL GREAT.

HE HELPS YOU TO THINK DIFFERENTLY ABOUT QUITTING AND TAKES AWAY THE FEAR.

Go ahead, buy it. You will be elated that you did!

I had tried to quit smoking 5 times, in the 38 years I was an addict. My sister bought me this book, which I let sit on a shelf in my house for six months...I was afraid that if I read it, I would actually quit, and I just couldn't imagine life without cigarettes...

This book did it for me. It was easy to read, and I can tell you that it will work for anyone who reads it, follows the instructions, and understands what is being taught.

I do not crave cigarettes at all. Every time I had quit in the past, I would drink alcohol, and just HAVE to have a cigarette!

Not this time...I had three drinks the night I quit, and have had several more since then...the feeling of power and confidence is exhilarating, at the very least.

I will never smoke again, and I am loving every minute of it. If you get this book, and read it, as a smoker, you will be able to do the same thing...easily.

Edit: Just wanted to update, I've now been smoke-free for almost nine years. Thank you, Alan Carr! I couldn't have done it without you.

I was really addicted to cigarettes. A 20 year habit, and even though I'd desperately wanted to quit for years, each attempt ended in failure. The most I'd managed was just a few months, and that was during my first pregnancy. Three weeks after my daughter was born, I was back at it again. My subsequent pregnancies I tried to quit, but never made it more than a few days. My husband is a vehement non-smoker, and I was desperately ashamed of my habit, and yet the urge was just too strong.

Now in my late 30's, I knew I had to do something. If not for myself, then for my young children. My oldest really wanted me to quit. There was many a time I lectured her about not smoking, with a cigarette between my own fingers, using myself as an example of what not to do and explaining to her all the ways it had made, and was making, my life so much less than it could have been. My two youngest were starting to ask me questions that made me so guilty and uncomfortable, like "Mommy what's that?" and, "Can I put that in my mouth too?" And for our entire married life, I cringed everytime my husband kissed me because I knew he was totally repulsed by the lingering cigarette odor.

So finally I decided this was it. Sure, I'd decided that before, but this time I was more desperate than ever. I went to my doctor and got a prescription for Welbutrin. I knew from an earlier attempt that it did help. You're supposed to take the Welbutrin for two weeks before you quit. I used those two weeks to read Alan Carr's book. (Thank you, Amazon, for making these reviews available.
