No pressure

“New Year’s Day! The day every smoker resolves to stop smoking. Don’t! … it just so happens to be the very worst day in the year,” wrote Allen Carr in How to be a Happy Non-Smoker. Well, today is January 1st – and there’s no time like the present! But Allen’s sentiment still rings true. There is only one perfect time to quit smoking, and that’s when you are ready. In an article about quitting with Allen Carr, Ontario-based Paul Rollinger writes that his decision to quit for good, after four decades, was spurred on by ‘nothing concrete, other than it’s time.’ The key to being free of smoking once and for all is to not be pressured into it. Just as Paul quit when he felt it was truly the right time, Coco Rose Morrison, another recent quitter, explains: ‘Friends and family have always hammered us smokers to quit. read more

Mindfulness

Mindfulness. Recently, it’s a word that has been hard to avoid. It seems like everyone is doing it, or if you’re not, like something that you definitely should be doing. But what exactly does mindfulness mean, and how does it apply to you? If you’re interested in the idea but not sure where to start, this new book, The Easy Way To Mindfulness, will help set you on the path to a more mindful existence using his famous Easyway method. Research shows that average stress levels are higher today than at any other time in history. As everyday pressure and anxiety keep on mounting, we often tell ourselves that we shouldn’t worry so much, yet somehow we feel helpless to stop. But happiness is not beyond our reach, nor a consequence of things beyond our control. It’s how you choose to respond to these things that determines your happiness – read more

Do we have a drinking problem?

  In many societies, alcohol problems are rarely out of the news, and the situation appears to be getting worse. With stories of ever more bizarre forms of binge drinking (Neknominate, anyone?) and proposals to make it illegal to drink while pregnant, is our society really in the grips of an alcohol crisis? Or does the media merely highlight and exaggerate things that have always gone on, in one way or another?                                                 We have been reflecting on this issue as the Christmas party season is once again in full swing. Our book Stop Drinking Now by Allen Carr (available here) deals with the “Alcoholic” stigma and society’s contradictory attitude towards alcohol. We wanted to share this quote from the book with you: Why do they conceal it? Because read more

How to get my father to use the Allen Carr’s Easyway stop smoking method

We received an interesting enquiry at Allen Carr’s Easyway To Stop Smoking Clinic in London recently. A gentleman who had stopped smoking easily after attending one of our quit smoking seminars wrote to ask for advice regarding his father and how he might inspire him to stop smoking. The writer said that while he was explaining how the stop smoking session seemed to work (to another family member) his father appeared to take some interest. The writer explained that he told his father and the family member that it was all very easy to stop smoking, that there were no scare tactics, or health lectures – in fact not a single mention of the C word! He explained that smokers are able to carry on smoking throughout the session until the end and how all the people on the course were all very happy. How it was almost miraculous in read more
