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!
She didn’t believe she was strong enough to quit and nobody else in her life did either. She tried patches, e-cigs and all kinds of crutches over the past few years and always ended up feeling defeated and helpless. But reading Allen Carr’s book resulted in a paradigm shift.
While I’m really glad cigarettes are no longer a part of her life, what gives me the most joy is how enthusiastic and alive she sounds. If you or someone in your life is interested in being free of tobacco but has struggled or faced feelings of failure, please check out his book and/or seminars. Truly a life changer.
I felt like I had a conversation with Allen Carr. He writes in a conversational tone and the brilliance of his writing is repeating the important points over and over. By the time you get to the end of the book the points have been all but memorized and the book walks with you.
There's no magic here, but facts and dispelling myths. I can't really explain it but I quit before the book was over and haven't had a smoke since. I've only been tempted but 2-3 times and I always went back to the fact that I wasn't getting anything from nicotine but addiction. It is a drug! I didn't smoke to relax, deal with sexual frustration, when I felt hope and optimism...I smoked to feed the drug addiction of nicotine.
Yes, certain moods triggered the addiction, but it was addiction for the drug. Let me be honest...I have suffered withdrawal pains. It has been bad, but good because each time I feel pain I am closer to being free of the weed. Like a mother going through birth pain, the end result is the point of focus and going through the pain is OK...even like a badge of honor. The key for me is when I decided to stop I told my self this:
I AM NOT A SMOKER ANYMORE! I don't associate with smokers and I am born again so to speak. I live like a non-smoker and I am one.
BUY THIS BOOK!
Tell others. It isn't a rational argument, it is about timing and wanting to quit and then hublu asking for help. Carr knows what he is talking about and is a man who has focused on one thing and done it very well.
