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 bought the book and left it on the coffee table for a week or two. Picked it up after I returned from a vacation. Read most (3/4), but to be honest, I never finished the book. I didn't need to. I smoked my last cigarette on July 14, 2015 and I have not looked back. I smoked for over 20 years and now I have been free for over six months.
I started smoking when I was in high school, 15 or 16. Was a confirmed, moderate to heavy smoker from that point forward (1/2 pack to pack+ a day). I quit once for about a year in 2005-6, cold turkey. I hated it, was miserable, cried a lot and missed smoking all the time. Felt as though I was denying myself the joy and pleasure of smoking.
The last six-plus months have been completely different. I do not miss smoking. I feel relieved of a burden. I am confident I will never smoke again and I am so grateful for that. I wanted to quit. I was ready, but I was intimidated and worried I would again miss it forever, so I just put it off over and over again. Then I remembered someone mentioning this book and I figured for less than $15 and with the volume of positive reviews, it was worth a shot.
I think wanting to quit/being ready is an important piece of why this book worked for me. I was open to the power of suggestion and it helped me shift my perspective on quitting from one of fear and missing out, to one of joy and gratitude. My husband is still a smoker and I can't even get him to turn a few pages, so I know it's a personal decision and one that only the smoker can make... but if YOU are looking for a path to become a non-smoker, I suggest you give this book a try. Good luck!
I bought this book on the recommendation of a friend...she told me it cost about the same as two packs of smokes. Since I was already spending that money on a daily nicotine addiction, why not buy the book and give it a try? So I did...and I have to say that I absolutely enjoy and appreciate every moment of being a non-smoker, just like the author promised. Believe me or not, but this book explains how not smoking is actually simple and painless, requiring no willpower. Just an open mind and some healthy common sense.
Honestly, I didn't believe it was possible...and I'm not saying it's a magic formula...but it is very effective in its own unique way. Allen Carr is a very insightful teacher with a very compassionate approach to being done with smoking. It's all about escaping a trap, not quitting something pleasant. It's a book that reminds us that we're not really giving anything up because nicotine adds nothing to our lives, physically or mentally. It "doesn't fill a void, it creates one", as Allen Carr observes.
I love it and hope for your lungs, heart, and mind that you give it a try and find something useful for yourself in its methodology and unique philosophy.
When the middle-aged son of the woman I recently married told me how he had been trying to quit smoking for many years, I toold him about the Carr's book. He poo-poo'd the whole idea. But, then, he felt obligated to at least READ the book I then bought and sent to him. He told me the same story that my daughter told me. He finished the book and then just didn't smoke anymore. He says that he has loaned the book to many of his co-workers and customers, consistently being told that the book had worked its magic.
Don't ask me. I have never smoked, so I don't know the problems you have quitting. But I sure do recommend this book.
