Actually "Woke"

listening to this book is like waking up from a bad dream.
If you want to know what it feels like to be a non-smoker for the rest of your life, start at chapter one.
Goodluck!

100% Success Rate

To All Smokers,

To All Smokers out there I hardly ever if at all leave reviews for anything, however it would not do this book the justice that it deserves. Allen Carr and his Easy way method is the reason I no longer smoke. i listened to this book optimistic but unsure of the outcome, however now listening to this book has changed my life and I know it will change yours. Do yourself a favor and purchase this book and be open minded, I've smoked for over 10 years and after listening to this book once I now no longer have a desire to smoke. Please give this book to all your friends and family as it will add so much value and time to there life as it did for me.

Thankyou Allen Carr.

the rules has changed!

I've had my own rules to quit smoking.. never understood what was my mistake! I thought I didn't have the will, but actually I didn't want to lose the pleasure of it. Until this guy comes to convince me that you won't lose the pleasure, but you will gain it. Sir.. you are right! life has never been this bright! thank you for saving me, my family, and even my community

Brainwashing? sure it is, but if you're a smoker your brain probably could use a good scrub.

33 year smoker here. I'm now done

After 33 years and not a day without, I'm finally done. Granted, I'm on day 3 but no matter what kind of cravings I get I know I'll never smoke again.
Please, don't delay. Even if your only considering quitting soon as I was... when I started listening to this book I thought the guy was whacked to be honest. Quitting smoking FUN AND EASY? ENJOYABLE? Ya right, dude, throw in a bridge and some snake oil whlle your at it.

But who can argue with success. I'm no different then you when it comes to smoking. Our habits may vary but we are both addicted to nicotine. If I can do it after smoking since 12, you can do it. And this is the book that did it for me.

Grateful doesn't begin to explain how much I believe in this. Give it a shot. Hey. What do you have to lose? If it doesn't work then get a refund. And what's five hours compared to how many potential years you could save of your life.

Wish I could gift it to every smoker

If you want to quit, listen to this book, it is the best approach I've come across. The mindset Allen promotes is not just good for quitting smoking, but for quitting bad habits in general.
Really a great book.

Everyone might benefit from this book

Smokers and non smokers, this is a book that tells it like it is. I smoked 50 years and was scared to death to attempt to quit again. Why? Because every time I attempted in the past I became ill and it was so difficult. When I realized it was all the things I was using, the gum, patch, lozenge ,___, _____,____, name it, to assist me in quitting, that was making me ill each time, I simply really "heard" Mr. Carr when he said (nothing bad will happen to me by quitting smoking). I believed him and after 3 times listening through, I quit. It's been 5 months now and I'm doing great. Hard to believe! I recommend you only tell those who may have skin in the game. The other's just do what you can to avoid until you have a handle on it. There are people who just can't help but try pull you back down again. Sadly. Even them asking how you're doing can trigger you. I've a list now of people I know I can't trust. Like I said it's sad but it's a real behavior we can witness in those we otherwise would believe to be really great people. Crab Potting they call it. Do what you can before hand so those around you are prepared themselves and understand they could either support you in this or wreck it. In the end it's about you and you can do this. Wishing you all the best!!!

So Easy It's Scary

Would you listen to The Easy Way to Stop Smoking again? Why?

Maybe. There isn't much need to listen to it again and again. Once your stop-smoking revelation happens, you'll never need to turn back.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes.

Any additional comments?

It's almost unbelievable how easy it was. Not only easy but actually uplifting and enjoyable. I immediately spread the word to my Dad and he too has quit after smoking for over 40 years.

Worked for me 2018

I listened to this book 6 months ago after being a smoker for many years. I have tried and failed many times to stop. I think I can safely say I am now a non smoker, not a puff since. I dont think about smoking at all, even when my friends go for one on nights out. I would have been jealous in past attempts and nicked a puff. You still have cravings when the book has finished but they are not as bad as when I have tried cold turkey or nicotine replacement. Also they didn't last for long and were really easy to deal with. I didnt want to scream at anyone!! My husband also listened but he did not quit for long. I think you have to want to stop! The way he writes is not modern (it was written in the 1980s and he was 60 odd), reminded me of my Grandad, which I liked but could come across as patronising at times. Any way, the NHS should give this out at their stop smoking clinics, save them tons of money! Good luck!

I am a happy non-smoker!

Thanks to this method i quit smoking for good and it was extremely easy to do so. Couldn't believe it would be so easy. Brainwashing was the main reason I couldn't quit myself on my previous attempts.I thought i was giving up on something i enjoyed which was far from the truth.

Still quit over a year on.

Well over the year mark and I came back to audible to get another book but thought I'd drop this line in just to pay homage to this absolute game changer book. Couldn't have done it without this book and it was actually easy after it lifted all the stupid mental shackles I put on myself. No NRT or any of that nonsense just went through this entire book and quit at the end after the final horrible cigarette.

YOU CAN DO IT.

I’ve stopped

2nd week into being a non smoker. Took ages to listen to the book the first time but towards the end I just didn’t want to smoke anymore. Yes I’ve had a few withdrawal pangs from the small nicotine monster but mentally it’s not happening. I feel good- so far! And I’ve listened to the book again in my 2nd week to keep reminding me of the lessons.

If you actually really want to quit this is how. you have to want it first so you're open and taking in what Allen is saying. I quit after 10 years. 6 months free now.
