Peter, a happy non-smoker from Slovenia

We thought it would be great to share some of the wonderful testimonials we receive here. Of course – we receive many to the special Tell Allen Carr’s Easyway That You’ve Stopped Smoking section of our website but we still receive many longer messages about how people stopped smoking with the method and these are always appreciated. Here is a testimonial from Peter in Slovenia: For all smokers out there: don’t be afraid of this one. Light a smoke and order the book. Read while smoking. Smoke while reading. No need to change the habit. Just read the goddamn (sic) book. It does wonders. I hear about more and more people that stopped using this method and everyone has a special story. Here’s mine: a friend quit (again) using a nicotine-replacement therapy (Nicorette gums). We had a chat (he joined me for a smoke; well only passive one for him;-) read more

Allen Carr’s Easyway To Stop Smoking organisation support the campaign for plain cigarette packaging

From the desk of John Dicey, Worldwide Director, Allen Carr’s Easyway Allen Carr’s Easyway To Stop Smoking organisation support the campaign for plain cigarette packaging. Plain Packs combined with providing smokers with an effective method of stopping smoking would be a great step in the direction of reducing the influence of Big Tobacco on youngsters and helping smokers to stop. We thought long and hard about whether to support plain packs and the following points were compelling. a) we support plain packs not graphic photos of smoking diseases. Graphic photos eventually become ignored by smokers who “tune out” of them in the same way as they have done with the printed health warnings on the packs. Even the smokers who notice the graphic photo warnings and experience fear are likely to react by…lighting a cigarette. If a smoker experiences fear – what does he do? He smokes. b) plain packs read more

I was able to forever kick my habit using Allen Carr’s book, and I’ve recommended it to everyone I know! Briefly read more

How to choose your stop smoking therapist/stop smoking counsellor…

From the desk of John Dicey, Worldwide Director, Allen Carr’s Easyway With so many choices about which nicotine patch, nicotine pill, nicotine lozenge, or nicotine inhalator to use it’s no wonder that people become more than a little confused about how to stop smoking. With reference to the items I just listed – it reminds me how Allen Carr always used to joke about so called nicotine replacement products – he used to say “What will they think of next? A cigarette?” So many smokers have tried to use these other methods and have either gone back to smoking, continued to smoke as well as use the products, or become addicted to the nicotine product that was supposed to cure them. No surprise then that more and more smokers are turning to stop smoking therapists, stop smoking hypnotherapists, and stop smoking counsellors to help them kick the smoking habit. So with read more
