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 I… Read Full Review

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 Full Review

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 Full Review

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… Read Full Review

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 Full Review

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 Full Review

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 give… Read Full Review

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 Full Review

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, I… Read Full Review

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 Full Review

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! IT JUST DID. I bought a second hand copy for just over £2.00 and have saved over £200 since. GET THE BOOK IF U WANT TO STOP SMOKING… Read Full Review

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.
This book is definitely work a try because it does work for a lot… Read Full Review

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 don't… Read Full Review

I started smoking when I was 11 years old. I tried the patch and medication to quit smoking about nothing worked. I bought the book when I was 27, I am now 31 and have been smokefree for five years. I have never looked back a single day of my life. This book made quiting smoking effortless. I recommend it to eveyone… Read Full Review
