      About the Author

      Allen Carr was an accountant and smoked 100 cigarettes a day until he gave up and wrote this bestselling book. He has built a hugely successful network of stop-smoking clinics across the world and is the author of The Only Way to Stop Smoking, How to Stop Your Child Smoking, The Easy Way to Enjoy Flying and The Easyweigh to Lose Weight. In 2004 Allen published his bestselling autobiography Packing It In (Michael Joseph). He was diagnosed with lung cancer in the summer of 2006 and died in November of the same year. It seems likely that the years he spent curing smokers in smoke-filled sessions at his clinics must have contributed to this illness, but Allen Carr remained positive; “Given that I am informed that I have cured at least 10 million smokers on a conservative estimation, it’s a price worth paying.”

      1. Pratik

        Was a bit skeptical about it at first, thinking it is just another hypnosis technique. But everything said in the book makes total sense.Yes you may find it repetitive at times but it is important to read something multiple times to believe it (because it is the truth). After all, smoking is repetitive as well and it has fogged our mind (figuratively ) and lungs literally for years for years.Its been two weeks since I had my last one and would never want to be a smoker again. It was actually easy this time around since the book gets you in the right frame of mind to actually do it and be happy about it. No more feeling miserable with cravings everyday.Can’t thank Allen Carr enough to save mine and so many other lives from the poison we got addicted to in our youth.Highly recommended even if you think you can never stop smoking. Give it a try. What worse can happen than what cigarettes are already doing to your mind and body.

      2. Bikramjit Singh

        If you are serious about quitting buy the book immediately

      3. harshit gupta

        You will quit after reading this book, like i did :)


        A good read.

      5. Amazon Customer

        Highly recommend it, if you are serious about quitting smoking. Infact if you do pick up this book congratulate yourself as the days of smoking are numbered.

        it initiated the activity but did not help further

        Nicotine is a drug addiction!.. this book cures that!Its a shame Allen Car is not alive so i can call and thank him for saving my life. Your reading these reviews like i did 3 weeks ago. And believe me its not that i didnt think it would work, but i was afraid to try it, not ready to quit but yet wish i didnt smoke. It was 10$ almost the cost of my daily pack of American Spirits. I ordered it and was quite excited when it came in the mail. I told everyone i was going to quite this time! I am 23 years old and smoked almost a pack a day for 6 years. I am a well rounded person, pretty (just saying), smart, and WAS very athletic. Over the years i have not done a single sport, nor ran any type of long distance. My body could only handle walking, and even then walking up the stairs i was out of breath. At 23?… I hated when people would say you dont look like a smoker (which i thought was always rude). I would hide smoking from people who didnt know, because in todays society it is seriously looked down apon. Sometimes smoking makes you feel like your in prison. But no matter how embarresing it is or was, I never stopped. Not my mother crying or my boyfriend of 4 years telling me that smoking was a serious deal breaker for our future. In my body i was a smoker, in my mind i wasnt. I never wanted to be a smoker. In highschool i had some friends who were smokers, and i started cigarette smoking after weed. I thought ill never get addicted to these. These taste like s*** ! But it isnt till 2 years later i tried to quite, becasue at the time my boyfriend did not want anything to do with me as a smoker. It was hard. I rushed out of the house after a night together and the first thing i tried to do was light up a cig. I would spray my car, make my friends smoke outside in the cold after getting to school instead of smoking in the car. I wanted him to believe that i didnt smoke anymore, and i wanted to believe that i didnt. But i did. That did not stop me. It made me aggravted, which is prob why we broke up. I countiued smoking, at that point they seemed even more pleasurable for the next few years. I finally met my soul mate my senior year of highschool. he was a college boy. He has never forced me to stop but i know he hates it. occasonally hell have a cig when were out drinking. I envied him. How could he not smoke but have one almost every weekend. THats what i wished for. So i tried to quite again after 3 years together. I put on the patch and said thats it! IT WASNT BAD AT ALL…. However after reading this book i realized it wasnt bad because i was still getting nicotine. After i decided i was strong enough to take it off. I would have a cig every once in a while ( THIS IS ALL IN A 3 MONTH PERIOD ) … I was able to control myself and i thought this is nice. But i still desired them. Finally one night something pissed me off so badly that i bought a pack. I was that mad that i felt that the only thing that could make me feel better and relieve my stress after all the good ive done would be a cig? well you can guess where that ended up. Once you buy the pack you mys well finish it right! so i smoked again for another year 1/2 untill 5 days ago 14 hours and 54 minutes. This book is amazing. Its amazing because its a side to quite smoking that no other person has ever tried before. No scare tacktect! You smoke throughout the book. Which i was confused at times because he never really told you to light up …. so when you do read it ( BECAUSE YOU WILL ) Smoke as much as you want, 2 -3 cigs a chapter if you want!. This book basically debunks all of the thoughts and feelings you thought smokeing was and it reveals the real truth about smoking. Once you know the truth ( and i dont mean what it does to your body ) i mean once you no the truth about what smoking really doesnt do for you, you wont want it. One of the biggest thing the book says it that. Smoke cigerettes… the cigerttes itself contains nicotine (we all know) but did we all no that NICOTINE is the most highly addictive drug known to man kind. NICOTINE IS MORE ADDICTIVE THEN HEROIN, ALCOHOL,CRACK,…. Looking back on why i could never quit it made sense. s*** i went crazy without it. But why? its not like they taste like lobsters. If i were to be forced to eat lobsters everyday several times a day for 6 years i would hate them! i would prob kill myself. They would taste like s*** by then. But yet, we smoke cigarettes and they didnt taste good in the first place, and we have them everyday for years. why? because NICOTINE is a drug addiction. Every smokers wishes he/she never started. so take that wish and see what can come out of it. read the book. I actually read the book and had 1 chapter left, which was the “LAST CIGARETTE CHAPTER” … i closed it had a cig and said maybe ill read that chapter in a few days. I actually wanted to wait also becasue it was the weekend and i wanted to enjoy myself. lol its sad. it made me realize wow smoking controls your life. and controls how you read books for god sakes. So i was on youtube and came across the DVD. Oh by the way i at this point unlike other reviews who said OMG IM DONE SMOKING AND I AM ONLY HALF WAY THROUGH. i was no where near that. i was still afraid, i understood everything in the book but still something hadnt clicked! it made me upset… i thought to myself omg is this is it? am i going to be a smoker for the rest of my life :( … well i started watching the dvd…. i watched 10 minutes of the hour long period. I paused it once it got my interest. THe book was amazing and i am so glad i read it, but the dvd i could tell was helping as well because although i read everything and understood. the dvd reviewed everything just like the book but it picture for. I was able to grasp it that much more! So i had to go to work of course. told my boyfriend and called my mother that i was going to smoke my last cigarette. It felt so good to say it. I was confident. somehting clearly had clicked thank god. I went to work came home at 11… watched the hour long dvd from the start. I had my final cigarette at 12:50am when he told me too. Tossed the fresh 10$ pack in the trash (after breaking each cig) (boyyy would i never have done that one) and went to bed a non smoker! I must admit and share my story with you because when i read others there so positive and i had a different story. mine was still positive but it helps to hear a full story especially with the fear you must be having thinking of buying this book and quitting. So the follow day and the next was HORRIBLE. Now i had slight pangs and thought about cigs alot. But it also was a stressful two days beings my boyfriends grandfather has been in the hospital sick with stage 4 cancer. I was depressed and miserable. out of control crying. I was missing something. Was the feeling i got …. really missing something. that night my boyfriend was so fed up with me i went to a friends house. still havent smoked i asked for a cig. she put the pack infront of me. I talked out my feelings while looking at the pack. I was craving one. but would it help me? would it help my situation? I finally left and told her i would have one on the ride home thanks. I got in my car to go home. It was pouring out. I put the cig in my mouth went to light up and said “you know what no” (exactly those words) I threw out the cig and from then on i swear to god. I have not been miserable. I have been happy and joyful. I know i beat the addiction. I am now fearful of every smoking again because i realized how addicting they really are. I know that when im stressed cigarettes will not make the stress better, they would have just released the stress from the previous cigarette. ( youll learn all this in the book ) today although its only been 5 days i went for my first run. I ran 1/2 mile non stop with no pain. It felt so good i could have kept going. I only stopped to turn around, and when i did i was all smiles. Its crazy 5 days ago i would not have been able to do that. It goes to show you how presush our bodies are and how much poisn we put in them to feed our addiction. Our bodies bounce back to how they are supposed to be in a matter of no time. So do not be fearful of this. buy the book and dont question yourself. Remember if you bought it, it means your really READ AND WILLING TO QUIT. I do also recomment trying to find the DVD if things havent clicked like for me they didnt. They did though. And besides those two days (where i feel my body was breaking down for giving myself such harmful poisions all these years ) it has been easy!!! no with draw pangs since. I am so glad i picked up that cigarette and said no. it proved to me that i was truly a non smoker. thanks allen car for saving my life, and thanks to all the wonderful people who wrote the reviews. it helped myself gain confidence in defeating this awful addiction

        I had my doubtsI was literally at the end of my rope. I’ve been smoking since I was 12, I’m 35 now. I was smoking 2 packs a day, my kids complained of the smell, my 3 year old mimicked everything I did including wanting Mommy’s cigarettes to mimic smoking, my husband can’t stand the smell,I couldn’t either. I hated smoking. I hated I had to have it. I feared the withdrawal and failing as I have time and time again. I looked for solutions and stumbled upon this book. Read the reviews and just knew these weren’t legit and too good to be true. I also said it was probably worth a shot bc I spend money on two packs a day I can afford to buy the book just once. I was doubtful but kept an open mind while reading, I agreed with literally everything he wrote. Everything. I knew the dangers of smoking, my health, the smell, the need, the lies I tell myself bc I feared quitting and feared losing my crutch. I have smoked more than half my life. All of my adult life, it was a new thing and scary for me but I read this book and by 3/4 of the way into the book I really didn’t even want that last cigarette. I smoked it anyway, I made sure to “taste” and remember every negative thing about it. I smoked it, let my children rip up the 2 and a half packs of cigs I had (they were so happy about it) and watching them shred my crutch didn’t bother me a bit I was worried I’d wake up and want that cig with my morning coffee. NOTHING! Didn’t crave it, didn’t bother me. I do get done eating sometimes and be like ok time to smoke… Then it hits me instantly after that I’m no longer a smoker and I don’t need nor want it. I haven’t felt withdrawal as I have in the past when I tried. I’m not short tempered or ill like I imagined I would be. I now have a new life, without smoking, I used to run track and loved it. After smoking all these years I couldn’t do it anymore. Now, I will be returning to running and playing sports with my kids like I’ve always wanted and not think how I want a cigarette as soon as we are done. My husband was shocked at just 14 hours in I still didn’t want a cigarette bc by then I’d usually cave. This book and this wonderful man gave me my life back. I’d love to write him if he were here to tell him how thankful I really am. BUY THE BOOK! What do you have to lose? Nothing at all, but you have everything to gain I promise.

        From Skeptic to Full Blown BelieverI started smoking when I was 12 and have been a loyal tobacco customer for over 30 years. I quit using willpower for a few years during my first marriage but eventually fell back into it.Allen Carr’s book was recommended by a coworker when we were discussing my wanting to quit, but not knowing how. I began reading Allen’s book a few weeks ago with a heaping serving of skepticism. The more I read, the more I saw myself in the way that Allen describes smokers, much to my chagrin. Smokers rarely see themselves as such, and just that realization made all the difference to me.The closer I got to the end of the book, the longer I would put it down because I knew that I was going to be out of excuses the moment I read the last page. I finally finished the book Tuesday, Oct 3, 2023. Being fresh out of excuses, I then convinced myself that I should wait for my fiancée to read the book so we could quit together. I waited for a day, but I then realized that I was putting the responsibility of quitting on her so that I could carry on smoking “guilt-free”.On Thursday, Oct 5, 2023, I ran out of cigarettes around lunchtime. Once I was able to talk myself out of the panic that all smokers feel when they run out, I decided to put Allen’s method to the test until my fiancée returned from work. Surprisingly enough, the cravings did not impact me as they had in previous attempts to quit. I found myself amused that I didn’t want to light up once she got home or after eating dinner.Since that night, I have intentionally put myself into situations where I would previously HAVE to light up, and I am able to be around smokers without feeling left out or miserable. I can drink alcohol without one (something I never thought possible), and I can make it through a stressful situation without lighting up.I’ve been cigarette- and nicotine-free since then. It hasn’t been a pretty sight throughout (Friday morning was a little rough), but I’ve done something that I, and most smokers, can only dream of – I quit. I am free of nicotine, and I will never go back to it.I cannot thank my coworker, just as I cannot thank Allen Carr, enough for this book. I have never experienced anything so life-altering as Easy Way To Stop Smoking. If you’re a smoker, do yourself and your loved ones a favor – read it. I can’t speak for anyone other than myself, but if I can do it, so can you.

        Save Your Life- Buy it.After smoking daily for 20+ years I decided to give this book a try. I was VERY skeptical about anything, more so a “silly” book. I had tried the vapes but hated them. They were a mess to deal with and I felt like I needed a tool kit and box of supplies just to use them (not to mention they leak EVERYWHERE!). The gum and the patches were a joke. (Not to mention, you are still addicted to nicotine!) I soon went back to real cigarettes. I had previously quit for a month here and a month there over my 20 year smoking carrier, yet I could never stay off of them. I was using willpower and I would eventually break down. Something would happen, a stressful event, a bad at work, a party and drinks – I would swear to have “just one”. Before I knew it I would be right back to smoking full time. Willpower quitting will not work! It had been probably 7-8 years since I had even tried to quit last. I had just accept my fate all those years knowing the cigarettes would probably one day kill me. I always hoped someday I would quit but really had no plan. I was smoking roughly a pack a day all those years (sometimes two packs a day on the weekends). When I turned 40 I decided it was time to give quitting another go….before it was too late. After reading the reviews I decided to give this “silly” book a shot. I received the book in the mail a day or so after I had already quit ( despite this being against Allen’s advice). The first few days were REALLY rough. It was all I could think of. I had no idea how addicted I really was. It was so much worse than previous times I had quit. All those years were catching up to me. The anger and rages I had were almost uncontrollable. My energy levels dropped from an 8 to a 2. I kept reading the book and trying to push through the HORRIBLE withdrawal of nicotine. Each day was a challenge. I would come home, eat dinner and collapse into bed sometimes before 8pm. I had never realized how bad nicotine really was until 3-4 days into quitting. Sometimes it is laughably easy- a second later you have the world on your shoulders. I kept reading the book and kept pushing (keep a journal it helps!). About half way through the book, 9-10 days in, I started to gain real confidence! I began to see the light. I still was exhausted on some days. My mood swings were tough. I was down and depressed on some days. Persevere- you can and will get beyond this. Was it really easy? Uh… well not necessarily. There is no magic. The book helps to explain your addiction. It breaks it down to simplify it. It is not some huge massive fight that you cannot win. It is simply an addiction, ANYONE can beat it. It is very uncomfortable those early days, yet, just stop smoking and you win. Just don’t EVER light another one! No matter how bad you want one – just don’t! Go for a walk, read a book, anything to keep your mind busy. Sometimes it is all you can think of. I am now 8 months in and almost never think of smoking other than being SUPER happy that I never even think of smoking! It does get better! It does become EASY. You have to change your mindset. Every day you succeed is a major win. DO NOT GIVE IN. Keep going! Once you are beyond day 1 there is NO TURNING BACK. You have done it. Soon enough you will be breathing easier, feeling better and happier than ever. It is not overnight. Think of this – the first two days, the first two weeks, the first two months. These are the hardest in progressively easier increments. Then all at once- a couple of months have passed, you will realize you have won! You still have a ways to go but you are 85-95% there at 2 months. I will admit to a slight cheat- herbal cigarettes (non-nicotine) I used these in the beginning at parties, weekends, when drinking etc.. To get beyond those social moments when I would absolutely have to light up. (These are nothing like a real cigarette, don’t get your hopes up!) I still grab an herbal from time to time, maybe once every few weeks or so, usually when drinking or in a social situation- BUT- it is not every time now! I am completely moving on in less than a year. It is more of that old habit, still connected, yet, I am NICOTINE free and HAPPY! You too will soon start to HATE nicotine and everything it has taken from you. SIDE STORY: Both of my parents have smoked for well over 40+ years. After seeing me stop they were very curious. I GLADLY handed over my Allen Carr’s Easy Way book with a smile. I really didn’t think much of it. After all they had smoked almost all of their lives. I fully expected them to come back with the old “This book didn’t work. We are hopeless at quitting.” I honestly forgot about giving them the book. A few weeks later I spoke with my mom. She had quit! I was shocked!! I could not believe it!! She was struggling but she was WINNING the battle. I helped coach her and support her along the way. She too used the herbal cigarettes in moments of crisis. Within 4 weeks, she was gaining confidence. That was 4 months ago and she is 100% done with cigarettes. My poor dad seeing how we had both quit was up in arms. Per his words “I just can’t do it like the book says. I want to but probably can’t ever do it.” Smoking 2 packs a day for 40 years is not an easy cycle to break. My mom and I both understood. He continued picking his way through the book. Reading here and there. He continued seeing our success. Then, one day, he threw all of his cigarettes in the trash. He was done. It was not EASY in those first days- We coached him along, pushed him, mentored him and now 3 months later he is a NON-SMOKER!!!! Our family with over 100 combined years of smoking is now 100% nicotine free!! Thank you Allen Carr for changing AND SAVING my life!! And more so for SAVING my parents lives!!! Buy this book. Dig your heals in and make it happen in your life too! You will not be disappointed in 6 months I can absolutely assure you! Anyone can quit. Read the book with an open mind. Read it again if you don’t get it. Allow yourself to gain confidence. Slam your fist down- go to battle with this addiction – there is no other option now: WIN. Your life will thank you.

      13. Very nice addition to my work area and very easy to convert to and other room. I would buy again and likely gift to another.

        It works….get itGet it, it works. Smoked for 25 years, menthol. 2 packs a day on an 8 hour work day if I didn’t have a drink and more than 2 packs if I did. On the weekends when I whooped it up I got into a 4 pack in a day. Hard to believe this as I am writing this. My close friends and family never thought I could or would quit. I had heard about the book so thought what the heck, don’t hurt to check it out. I never read books either so didn’t know it would sink in. He encourages you to save a cigarette to have once you complete y try he book. The further I read into the book it started working and that last pack lasted days cuz I didn’t want to buy a full pack to have 1 for the celebration of completion. Just as hard for the person that only smokes in certain occasions. The cigarette started looked weird in my hand towards the end of the book. It’s been 14 years and no desire since the day I quite. He teaches you that you do not need to replace smoking with something else. Same concepts and strength I gained but actually quitting help me quit drinking and lose weight. 58 years old. Get it, it barely more than a pack of cigarettes so no big loss if you don’t do it. I’ve gifted a few of these to others. Oh, and I never write reviews but this one deserves it and so do you!!!
