"Instantly I was freed from my addiction. I found it not only easy but unbelievably enjoyable to stay stopped." (Sir Anthony Hopkins)

One long infomercial. Save your money.

Wow. Really? I know this is supposedly a good way to quit smoking but this book is absolutely awful. It doesn't deliver on its title at all and is nothing but a big sales pitch for the program, without any ACTUAL advice or tips. Big disappointment.

Amazing!

If you could sum up The Easy Way for Women to Stop Smoking in three words, what would they be?

It feels good that a person could be so supportive of the differences for men and women's addictions. I have been struggling with my smoking addiction for years. It wasn't because of anyone elses judgements or reactions to me being a smoker. I just hated that something could be in control of my life and I wasn't able to have the ability to take it or leave it. It was very frustrating that this was the one area of my life I didn't feel strong.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Easy Way for Women to Stop Smoking?

When I realized that I could stop smoking cold turkey and just be done with out any issues and with out having to replace the nicotine and deal with that addiction after the habit of smoking. I was not looking foreward to a long drawn out with drawl cycle. Put them down, about 5 days of mild discomfort, and I am done!

Which scene was your favorite?

When he talks about the different stresses placed on women that are not the same for men. How those stresses work in our addiction cycles. Then how our addictions are connected to our emotions not just a pure physical habit which is why it tends to be more difficult for us to let go.

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

The most shocking comment, which he did back up, was that smoker's tend to actually be the alpha's in our culture. It made perfect sense and it sort of helped with some self esteem surrounding this issue for me.

Allen Carr is a genius

Allen Carr is the only way I've ever been able to happily stop smoking. I stopped successfully once on his program however when I was very drunk had a cigarette and it put me back in the trap. I've stopped again and this time I know it's for life. I'm so happy to see what life brings to me and I'm so glad that I made the right decision. Smoking has zero place in my life.

Amazing Author who has helped millions..!

Any additional comments?

I am not a gambler, but I read now read four books by Allen Carr: On smoking, alcohol, gambling, and debt...because I was so impressed with his unique approach to addictions.

I recently checked out his website. He company offers seminars and online classes around the world. I have a loved one who is a CHAIN SMOKER. He is also OVERWEIGHT...after being a skinny guy for much of his life.

I also have another family member who had a darling figure until she got married and had three children. I am interested in helping both of them.

BTW, on his website and on YouTube are video TESTIMONIALS from celebrities such as: Anthody Hopkins, Aston Kutcher, Ellen Degernes, and Richard Branson. Check them out.

It works!

Do yourself a favor and learn how to escape the nicotine trap quickly and easily, by listening to this book, and following all of the instructions.

Thank you Easy Way, the #9 bus is not of the slightest interest to me anymore.

I Stopped Immediately

By the time I had reached the end, I was very eager to smoke my last cigarette. This time feels completely different than any previous failed attempt. I stopped in the middle of PMS (and I’m still b****y) but I can quite easily get through those little meltdowns, those real life things without a cigarette. I don’t even think it would be better or easier to go pick up a pack. That’s the real treasure here. I don’t think things would be better, easier, more pleasurable if I was smoking. I can honestly say I feel completely free from cigarettes. I even bought a copy for my pregnant friend who has been suffering over the loss of them. The Easy Way works.

Wow!!

After getting lots of flak from the girls at work about nipping out for quick ciggie break, I decided to get this book and show everyone I was reading it so that when I finished I could tell them all I was a lost cause and would have to continue smoking as nothing would work for me.
It only went and bloody worked!!
I'm now a happy non smoker to the point where people ask me how my non smoking is going and I look at them confused before I remember "oh, I used to smoke..."
The narrator is lovely, the stories made me giggle, there was so much I could relate to in the book and it has literally changed my life.
If you are a woman who smokes, whether you want to give up or not, get this book. It's the best gift you could ever give yourself.

2nd Time

I was a non smoker for 6 years after listening to the original version. Stupidly fell into the trap again for 2 years, with all the old excuses and kept putting off listening again.....well not anymore! Back to being a healthy happy non smoker and it is just as easy. what are you waiting for? 😀

Follow all the instructions

The content of this book highly relevant
I found the narration at times irritating maybe a bit patronising. ...but mainly that pethaps it was my own frustrating approach towards it and not wanting to hear everything I thought I knew!! I just wanted an answer....but you must read/listen to the book in its entirety..skip nothing do everything it says and only focus on the reason you have this book in the first place.
I am a non smoker

If I can, you can

After 20 years (I can't believe I'm actually typing that) of being a smoker that swore to myself that I would quit soon without ever really trying let alone succeeding, I finally decided that enough was enough and bought this audiobook. I was sceptical that it would work for me as I have always seen myself as someone with very little willpower and to be honest I thought I enjoyed smoking and that it was my little guilty pleasure I did for myself. When I put out my last cigarette at the end of the book, I wanted badly to believe it really was my last, but there was still a niggle of doubt in the back of my head that I would be buying a new pack the very next day. Well, I'm 2 weeks a non-smoker now and while I can't say I haven't had pangs, they haven't been strong enough to outweigh the effect of the book on my thinking and I am thinking less and less about smoking altogether. I haven't quite had the 'yippee' moment Alan talks about, but I am realising more and more just how much of my thoughts and time was taken up by smoking, how good it feels to be free of the guilt and shame of it (especially as I have children) and how much more in control of my finances I feel! Honestly, for all it costs, if you're a smoker and you don't think you want to be any more, you really have nothing to lose by buying Easyway and giving it a go. Good luck!

A must for quitters

I bought this book almost a year ago, today is my one year anniversary since quitting smoking. I found it helpful and funny. Some reviewers found it condescending, I did not, I laughed at myself, remembering how I was in panic if I ran out of cigarettes, seriously, like it was necessary for me to function. If you're seriously ready to quit and you're doing it for yourself, no one else, give it a try. Of course it will take effort on your part, but I guarantee it's worth it.
