I had been a 40-a-day smoker for about 24 years. Several times I tried to quit this horrid habit of mine. I tried going cold turkey, smoking herbal cigarettes, smoking electronic cigarettes and chewing tons of nicotine chewing gums............none of these helped me stay away from cigarettes for more than 10-hours. My son used to be ashamed of me when he used to see me lighting one cigarette from the smouldring remains of the earlier one. I really tried very hard but just could not stop till... (read more)

It's now over eight years since this book completely changed my life. I now run and have more energy than I did twenty years ago. I pick up copies of this book from charity shops etc and pass them on to others. Of all the people that I have given a copy of this book to, only one person still smokes, the reason, he hasn't read it yet! Allen Carr was a genius. (read more)

The man is a genius! I truly hope his name goes down in History as the man who helped the world to quit smoking. He removes all fear and physcological dependency on nicotine before you stop, so that when you do...all you are left with is a mild pang for nicotine which you know will pass within a relatively short period of time. I think the key is to stay focussed and perservere, as although it is easy to stop using his method, it is also easy to have a weak moment and kid yourself that... (read more)

A friend recommended this book having used it to quit eight years ago. Like most smokers I've 'given up' loads of times in the past but always succumbed shortly afterwards, usually following a night out drinking. During my previous attempts I've always had something in the back of my mind saying to me that I would smoke again one day but NOT THIS TIME... After reading Allen Carrs book I feel completely free for the first time in nearly twenty years. I've been a happy non-smoker (yes you... (read more)

What a book! I was very sceptical when I borrowed this book from a mate at work, but it had worked for a couple of the guys so thought I would be worth at least reading. From start to finish I couldn't put it down, so when the book told me to have my last cigarette I was a little taken aback. Still, I didn't it and I can now say I am no longer a slave. 20 a day to ZERO! (read more)

In 2002 I was selected to be a volunteer driver at the Manchester Commomwealth Games. This meant I would be based in the athletes village. It suddenly stuck me that there would be very limited opportunities to smoke in that location! I had wanted to stop so this was a real motivation. A friend had used Alan Carr's book and stopped and recommended it. I bought the book, followed the advice and got myself ready. On the 25th of June 2002 I went to the place I had had my FIRST cigarette, (at the... (read more)

I had serious doubts about the book. I friend had read it 10 years prior and always said, "Just read the book". I read the same book and completed it 2 days ago. I was 20 to 30 a day 12 year smoking veteran. From yesterday I'm a ex smoking believer. I had tried numerous times to give up smoking within the past 4 years. I tried the gum, the spray, etc. If only I "JUST READ THE BOOK". Allen makes so clear and so simply easy to stop. I can now see why he has a 90% success rate. If you want to... (read more)

I suppose I had a decent headstart because I was totally ready to quit and have managed to quit very easily in the past but it wasn't like this time. This time I'm 100% certain I will never touch a cigarette again - In my review on my blog I added something which helped me loads. I chain smoked my last four cigarettes to leave a very unpleasant lasting memory. They made me feel pretty ill. Definitely a good idea I found. (read more)

I have to say I have had this book now for almost a whole year. It sat under my ashtray of all places. Every night I would look at the inside cover and be petrified of what it said. Stop Smoking without withdrawl and non of the horrific side effects. Yes that made me scared. 2 nights ago I decided to take the chance and read the book. Why should I be scared of a book, that will ultimately help me? Well I read the book and now I know why. I finished the book after 5 hours of straight reading,... (read more)

My partner and I had wanted to quit smoking for about a year before we got this book. One of my mates at work swore by it. He said that you'd keep smoking while reading it, but by the end you wouldn't touch another cigarette ever again! We felt that was a big claim, and probably worked for some but not everyone. I have to say, this book really changed our lives! After talking and talking about quitting, we both thought we'd never do it. We didn't want to surround our children with harmful... (read more)

I got the book on the 16th April and quit on the 17th April. I had smoked heavily for over 20 years. EVERYONE has said they didn't think I would last 3 days let alone 4 weeks and 4 days (as of today). I can't see myself EVER smoking again. I don't know how the book helped and I don't care!

I've ready this book three times now, each time in the hope of miraculously not wanting/needing to smoke when I got to the end. And it has never worked for more than a few hours for me.
I never had that "a-hah" moment while I was reading, and although it all made sense, it was never powerful enough for me to quit.
I have since started on the medication Champix, and have quit for over two weeks now and everything's going well.

I had tried many other methods of quitting. None lasted. I just celebrated 4 years smoke-free and it only took me the two weeks I spent reading Allen Carr's guide for quitting smoking for women. My husband had just left after 32 years. I picked up the book because I felt isolated by my smoking. The book just resonated with my desire to change my life...so, yes, I was motivated. But I had always looked at smoking as my "stress-reliever". Nothing is more stressful than a divorce you... (read more)

I've been smoking since I was eleven and I'm now twenty. Last year I really wanted to quit for all the usual reasons (money, bad cough, bad smell, yellowing teeth). I used the patches and lasted a few days before I gave in and had a cigarette. I had decided over the Christmas period that I wanted to give up sometime in the New Year.

Absolutely amazing book!!! I finished reading it two weeks ago and haven't been tempted to have a cigarette since. I really used to believe that I enjoyed smoking, and that socialising and having a few drinks would not be enjoyable without a cigarette in my hand, I thought smoking relaxed me and gave me something to look forward to, and I even feared that somehow life wouldn't be complete without my cigs.

Reading Allen Carr's Easyway is without doubt one of the best thing that's ever happened to me. It was recommended to me by a friend who also stopped smoking by reading it. I smoked for 10 years and tried patches, gum, inhilator and cold turkey all with no success. I read Easyway 3 and a half years ago and haven't smoked or wanted to since! Simple! I still had my moments after stopping so also read the second volume of the book for an added boost. I cannot recommend it highly enough. ... (read more)

A book that costs £9 but saves you approx £75,000 over a lifetime has got to be value for money! This is quite possibly the best aid to stop smoking and is a worthwhile purchase for any smoker, whether they feel they want to stop at this time or not!
Well written and very witty, I will be recommending this book to all of my smoking friends and family :)

The book "Easyway to Stop Smoking" stopped me smoking- there is no doubt. I have several friends who had used it and suggested I should try it but I never quite believed it until I read it(which was actually 12 months or more after I bought it). The book was very easy to read; although I realised I was being told things I already knew, I didn't feel it was trying to make me feel stupid for smoking when I knew how bad it was for me. There was plenty of humour in the way it was written to get me... (read more)

The idea that reading a book barely an inch thick would help me quit smoking after almost 30 years of the habit was ludicrous to me. I'd tried patches, gum, hypnosis ... how could I quit doing something I enjoyed doing so much? I heard about Allen Carr's "The Easy Way to Quit Smoking" on the radio. A comedian (whose name I cannot recall) was touting its effectiveness with his own habit. So I bought it. I mean, what's 12 or 13 dollars compared to a carton of cigarettes, right? It laid...

I owe Allen Carr the last 2 fabulous smoke-free years of my life and the next 20 I hope, if my lungs recover.
The Easyway method worked after 17 years of heavy smoking where thousands of pounds spent in Acupuncture, Chinese Medicine, Gums, Pills, Willpower books and Hypnotherapy failed miserably.
When I finished the Easyway book, I felt relieved, happy and convinced this was the end of my nicotine addiction, but I couldn't get around to completely stop. I then booked a group session at my... (read more)

Gotta admit, I was a skeptic. How would reading a book help me kick the habit? And, to boot, I smoked because I WANTED to smoke, because I enjoyed it! I wasn't even sure I wanted to quit, but was feeling pressure from family and friends....
It took me a bit to get used to Carr's writing style, and the first few chapters are sort of a hard read. But quarter of the way through the book, I was hooked. You mean I *DON'T* really enjoy smoking? Wow.
