When are committed to quit, this book will make it happen,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Easy Way to Stop Smoking: Join the Millions Who Have Become Non-Smokers Using Allen Carr's Easyway Method (Hardcover)
My wife tried every technique including the LungUSA program (Freedom from Smoking), counselors, the gum, willpower, etc. I came across this book in the mall, she read it, and quit. And she did it decisively. Don't buy this for someone you want to quit -- reserve it for when they are committed and struggling and need something to help them. The psychology is subtle but highly effective. I even bought a copy to put in the public library. It begs the question -- why hasn't it become popular here already?

Perhaps tobacco companies have something to do with it? (laughter)

Actually this book teaches you specifically not to consider the ending of one's slavery to smoking as "quitting" ;).

I think Mr. Carr was more adamant about not referring to quitting as "giving up" smoking, since you're not giving up anything, only gaining :-)
