About This Book

Are you concerned about your child smoking?

Though only 26 per cent of the UK adult population now smokes (down from a peak of 80 per cent), smoking is actually on the increase among young people.

How to Stop Your Child Smoking, by the foremost expert in the subject, offers a clear, practical guide to parents on how to stop their children smoking, starting with the first rule of Don’t Be Complacent. In this unique book Allen Carr addresses a growing problem that all parents worry about.

This book gives advice on:
• How to communicate freely and openly with your children
• How to understand the stresses they are under
• Recognizing that smoking is not a choice, but a trap
• Resisting the pressure of friends, partners, and advertising
• Being aware of the misconceptions surrounding smoking
• Quitting without substitutes

About The Author

Allen Carr (1934-2006) was a chain-smoker for over 30 years. In 1983, after countless failed attempts to quit, he went from 100 cigarettes a day to zero without suffering withdrawal pangs, without using willpower and without putting on weight. He realised that he had discovered what the world had been waiting for - 'The Easy Way to Stop Smoking', and embarked on a mission to help cure the world's smokers. As a result of the phenomenal success of his method, he gained an international reputation as the world's leading expert on stopping smoking and his network of clinics now spans the globe. Allen Carr's 'Easy Way' method has been applied to a host of issues including alcohol, weight control, stress, gambling and fear of flying.
