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

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.

Brainwashing? sure.

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

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.

I'm going to listen to the program again and convince myself that it's the right thing to do I like the program and I need a little more time because I haven't convinced myself yet to be confident and make my final decision but I feel I'm on the right track

Impressive

It's boring, it's repetitive, it's a drag, I came close to dropping it many times. I listened to that book every day for 20 minutes on my commute to work, all the while smoking and thinking it would never work.

One day it ended, the book was finished, and that was also my last cigarette. I never smoked again. It has been a year and not a craving, not one time did I think to start again.

I'm not easily impressed, but this takes the cake.

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.

the greatest counter intuitive technique about!!!

this audio will not only make you stop you from smoking, you will never feel self doubt and will feel empowered everytime you see someone smoking-instead of feeling deprived! follow the steps and I suggest taking a few notes especially after the half way mark!!! enjoy your freedom!

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

Effective
Un-patronising
Easy

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

To be free is just the best feeling

Any additional comments?

This book has helped so many people - it works particularly well as an audiobook. Allen Carr is a genius.

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.

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.

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!
