5.0 out of 5 stars Miracle! 4 Mar 2007
I am a 23 year old male. I had been smoking since I was 14 years old. For about the last two years of my smoking, I was constantly trying to quit - by the end, I was trying to stop every Monday. Sometimes I would go an hour, sometimes a day, maybe even four or five days, now and again. Almost inevitably though, some reason, some excuse for me to smoke, would crop up that left me absolutely no choice in the matter, I just had to have a cigarette.

I'm not sure where I heard about this book, but I did, and how grateful I am too. This is the point where you who are reading this, start to feel sceptical of what you are about to read, much like I did when reading the reviews before me. Not that I questioned the truthfulness of others, but I seriously doubted my own capability of being successful like other people had. Here's what happened...

I read the book over the Christmas period of last year, 2006. By New Year's Eve, I was going over the last chapters, preparing for the 'final' cigarette. I tried to cram as many cigarettes into those concluding few hours of my smoking life, as I could possibly stomach. With mixed emotions, I read one of the penultimate chapters, instructing me to smoke my last cigarette, and end the slavery. I say mixed emotions because there was some fear of the unknown, some trepidation there, but I must stress that I really wanted to be free and was completely clear on my decision. I think the key for me, was really believing and desiring a life free from smoking. I had to want it.

So, that was a little over two months ago as I write, not a substantial amount of time, yet not insignificant considering the longest I ever went was 6 days and that was an absolute battle every minute.

5.0 out of 5 stars A STUNNINGLY EASY WAY TO STOP SMOKING 8 Dec 2002
Allen Carr has made stopping smoking ridiculously easy. My only complaint is that the author makes it far too easy to quit without the need for will-power or need for gimmicks or substitutes. Through logic and observable facts he dispels the illusion of pleasure that smoking provides. He doesn't even ask the reader to quit until they are happy and ready to do so at the end of the book.
I smoked for 18 years and am now a very happy non-smoker. Thank you Allen Carr! I cannot tell you succinctly enough of the utter joy I received on realising that I no longer had to continue to poison my body day after day, never being allowed to stop, as the addiction to nictotine enslaved me. Freedom is very sweet!
The author also provides two compact discs for after you have quit. They alone are worth the price of the book. Here is one happy customer and you will be too! Buy the book, GO ON! It will be the best decision you have ever, ever made. What have you got to lose? If you don't quit you will be no worse off than you are now. Remember Allen Carr will not ask you to quit until the end of the course. The course itself is so very easy that it is difficult to understand why we continued to smoke for so long. I now regard Allen Carr to be the only expert on nicotine addiction. Do you have a good enough reason not to buy this book?

5.0 out of 5 stars If it can work for me it will work for you. 28 Aug 2007
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have tried Gum, Patches, Inhalator, Lozengers, Zyban & Champix none of them worked at all. I heard of this book and thought why not...what have I got to loose, but I have to admit that I thought that going 'cold turkey' had little chance of working.
When reading the book I was actually looking forward to the end of the book when I would have my last cigarette and excited about being a non smoker!!!!
The book makes you look at what you do as a smoker in a totally different light and shows how nice and free it is to be a non smoker.

*UPDATE* Just thought I'd update you guys....well it is now 30/12/07 and I am still a non smoker and I know I always will be. Don't get me wrong there was some tough days and I'm sure there will be more to come but now I see all those people desperately puffing on those fags and now I look at them and think...well at least I'm not putting my body through that any more. When the going gets tough I simply glance through the book and some part will catch my eye and remind me why I did this in the first place then I feel fine again.
Oh, and lastly we have booked a 2 week med cruise for next year which my 2 kiddies are really looking forward to! bottom line is I know if I had continued to smoke we would never have been able to afford to do is that the ultimate reward or what!

Please give the book a go if you want to quit....Good luck! xx

**Last Update ** 10/08/09
Well I'm now fastly approaching the 2nd year anniversary of freedom! (26/08/09):-)
All I can say is if you are still looking for excuses then I feel sorry for you.

I pretty much concur with the reviews of the previous 451 people (well, most of them anyway). Believe what you like.

I was told to buy this book by someone who quit 4 years ago. He was a 40-a-day smoker himself and just quit overnight using the book. When he said that he didn't ever fancy a cigarette, I was very sceptical - I know how hard my Father has found it and he quit nearly 30 years ago.

I'm not even sure I really wanted to give up - I think it was more peer pressure than anything - none of my friends smoke and my best friend is married to a Doctor! I got nearly all the way to the end (to the part where you are asked to smoke a final cigarette). I realised for possibly the first time in my life that the most revolting thing I had ever put in my mouth was a cigarette (I was a little boy once too!)

If you've read this far, you're definitely interested. As someone earlier has said, this is half of the battle. This book will help you win the final battle and the war!

I'm not pretending it will help everyone but for the cost of it, even if you quit for a day, you're getting to the point of saving the cost of the book.

As for the person who said that they didn't like the way Allen Carr talks down to them, they obviously live in a little bubble where everyone is nice and polite. Sometimes, to achieve things, we all need to be put in our place. This is something that Allen Carr does correctly. He doesn't do it "just because he can", he does it because he needs you to understand how to help yourself!


20 a day for 22 years to nothing! In just a few hours!

It might be sunny now when you go down the pub and smoke outside... just think about what it'll be like at -10 and you're shivering in the snow!
