Rated 5 out of 5 by from This book saved my life A client recommended this book to me after I had to interrupt our meeting and invited her to go downstairs to continue our meeting while I smoked outside. I said she made it sound easy and she said it was easy and gave me a big smile. She said she read this book and it worked for her and she guaranteed that I would not be smoking by the time I finished the book. Guaranteed. I thought she was crazy but I was desperate - I had tried everything. I mean everything. I got the book and she was right. It was a miracle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Proof that this works! I don't smoke but I've read this book to encourage someone close to me. In all honesty, this book did get them to stop smoking. I've also heard that life insurance agents give this book to their clients for free to get them to stop smoking and help with their rates.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best $20.00 I ever spent - YOU WILL STOP SMOKING if you read this book I smoked for 39 years and picked up the book as a skeptic. By the third chapter I had lost the "taste" for a cigarette. After two days I had finished reading the book and I had also stopped smoking - I did not have any urges. I passed my supply of nicotine gum, patches, pills etc to a co-worker. I have been nicotine free for 5 years. I almost relapsed, but followed Alan's helpful advice and was able to ignore the nicotine demons when they tried to lure me back. I have bought this book for my brother, daughter and father - we have all stopped smoking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally quit smoking! My father has been a devoted pack-a-day smoker since before I was born. After he had a heart attack earlier this year, I bought him this book as a way of encouraging him to quit. I'm so happy I did because it's been months since he's had a cigarette and this book is a big reason why. Don't hesitate to buy it for yourself or someone in your life. Well worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life saver! I'm a young mother with one child and currently three months pregnant with my second. I told myself I will quit before my second trimester but was getting so worried because nothing was working. I bought this book and read it in one day. I have been smoke free for four days now and just want to cry because I'm not only giving myself a chance but my unborn child one as well. I thank god for Allen Carr everyday and may he rest in peace.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from REALLY DOES WORK My friend purchased this book for me as a gift. I was extremely hesitant and did not believe this book could curb my addiction. Boy, was I wrong.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LIVING PROOF AND SOOO HAPPY ABOUT IT! This book really works! You are urged to smoke while reading the entire (small) book, you have nothing to lose! Some of it isn't even stuff you haven't heard before, there is just something about how it all comes together and makes you go AH! Alot! It makes sense and it really works if you let it! I quit 1 yr 1 mo ago after more than 25 yrs of smoking & I will never go back now. I am indebted to Allen wishes to you on your new journey!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from REALLY WORKS! This book is fantastic! I smoked for years and was introduced to this material by someone who had never smoked. He claimed that reading this book will make me a non-smoker. I laughed, but thought it's worth a shot (to prove him wrong). It worked! It's amazing, borderline magic! If you want to quit, THIS is the answer, it's only $20, and best of all... IT WORKS! You have nothing to lose, and (if you can believe this) YOU CONTINUE TO SMOKE WHILE YOU READ IT! This is a ZERO risk way to go, and it DOES work!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smoker Freed From Slavery Thanks to Allen Carr I am free After 19 years of being a slave to a nicotine drug addiction. Smoking cigarettes ruled my life, and sucked the joy out of anything that controlled where and when I could smoke. I have spent thousands on smoking sensation products, and pills. Only to return to smoking. Knowledge is power and this book will set you free! KJEVANZ

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It really does work! I smoked for about 25 years. I tried cold turkey, the patch, and the gum more times than I can remember and nothing had any lasting effect on me. The lure of the addiction always brought me back within months. I have now been smoke-free for 18 months, thanks to this book. I have zero cravings, even when I'm around smokers. My wife continued to smoke for a year after I quit and finished reading this book in March. She has been smoke-free since. Read this book with an open mind and you will regain your freedom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievable! I wouldn't have believed it possible but it worked. It is easy to quit smoking with this book. I had tried everything, the patch, gum etc....and I actually quit cold turkey without any problem. It's such a great feeling. Thanks to Allen Carr because I'm feeling better, look better and I'm much healthier. I recommend this to all the people out there that want to quit but think they can't.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I was half way through the book and couldn't wait to get to the end so that I could quit smoking. You aren't supposed to stop until you are done reading the whole thing. I thought I was hopeless and weak 'cause I would quit and then start again, even after months of not smoking. Now I am completely free and don't miss it at all! I'm SO thrilled! I tell everyone about this book!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WORKED I bought this book for a 42 year old man who had been smoking since he was 15 years old. It was recommended by Jillian Michaels so I thought it might be worth looking into. He read the book, picked a quit date, and has not smoked since. It has been over 5 months now and I believe he's done for good now. I recommend this to all smokers who want a no nonsense approach to quitting. Read it if you are a smoker, or buy it for someone you care about.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy is an understatement, all you need is a little courage and an open mind ! Over three months ago, I read Allen Carr's Easy Way to Quit Smoking for Women. I haven't smoked since. I am now a non smoker and had smoked for over 30 years. Try it, what have you got to loose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I finally did it Two weeks ago I received EasyWay and was also skeptical, but quit at the end of the book and feel great. I have smoked for approximately 40 years (quitting here and there only to start again). You might feel an odd pang but you think of the book and actually the thought of a cigarette disgusts you. All doctors should be referring this to their patients who want to quit instead of prolonging it with nicotine gums and patches. You can do it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Totally, totally works A guy in my office quit. He said it was this book. I borrowed it. (I was scared.) I read a tiny little chapter each day on the subway home from work, while continuing to smoke, By the time I finished the book, I quit. Sounds crazy (I thought it was), but I have never looked back since. This book is without a doubt the most instantly rewarding thing I have ever bought or read. You can do it too!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Continued from below... Furthermore, I quit with half a pack of cigarettes in my drawer! How many of you smokers reading this can imagine doing that? I bet most would discount what I am saying as 'well he never was addicted then'.. wrong! Super addicted like you. The cigarettes sat in my drawer for 3 months before I threw them out. It never bothered me. I never thought of reaching for them once. I didn't WANT one. Keep your cigarettes around as well. Prove to yourself that you just don't want them anymore. It's amazing how easy it is to quit when you don't have to use willpower.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Book ROCKS! After 22 years of chronic use, I was terrified to stop smoking. Gaining weight, being stressed, losing something that made me "cool" (or so I thought) were only some of the many fears surrounding the dreadful undertaking. Allen Carr's book did wonders helping that monkey off my back. I've not only stopped, I haven't gained a pound, I'm relaxed and... nothing can be cooler than being FREE!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Book I finished this book 3 weeks ago and have not smoked or even had the desire to smoke since! It's absolutely amazing. I never thought I'd be able to quit. I was always using my stressful life as an excuse and now that I have quit smoking my life is so much LESS stressful. I have recommended this book to many of the smokers i know and am anxiously waiting to see if it works for them!!! Had I known it would be this easy i would have done it years ago..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome I was a smoker for 18 years and thought I enjoyed it until I read this book. I had tried quitting using several different methods but nothing worked. Believe me, it took me a long time to read this book because I was afraid to get to the end and actually stop smoking. But by the time I finished it I was ready to flush a pack of cigarettes down the toilet. I quit 4 1/2 years ago and have never looked back. Have recommended it to several friends!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm finally free! It was Ellen DeGeneres' endorsement that got me to read it with a slightly more open mind: "Everybody who reads this book stops and I stopped." Congratulations to all of you who read it :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Pen is Mightier Than the Patch! This book was amazing. About two years ago, a friend recommended this book. She had read it and stopped. I wasn’t ready to quit, so I didn’t read it (I was afraid it might actually work). About a month ago, I decided to try quitting for a number of various reasons. I was ready to go with a whole stop plan based on things we’ve all heard..drink lots of water, avoid temptation, keep your mouth and hands busy, get gum, etc. The plan was to smoke my last one on my birthday. Then I remembered this book. So I went out bought it, and started reading. I finished it in less than a week, and smoked my last one five days before my birthday. The best birthday gift I ever got. I didn’t need any of the stuff I was prepared to use, just in case. It was by far the easiest thing I’ve ever done. My husband smokes, but it doesn’t bother me and in the past two weeks I have not once wanted to light up. Now, I have to get my hands on a copy of EasyWeigh to Lose Weight / No More Diets and see if that one works just as well. I had always planned on losing weight first and then thinking about quitting smoking (my doctor actually recommended that to me also) since I thought that would be easier. This way has proven to be much easier. I’m already feeling more energetic and more motivated to get rid of all of this excess weight because I am now a non-smoker and love it. You have to read this book....visit his website for much more helpful information and hundreds of people's feedback. This method is the only method that works!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Five Readers, four of us are free This book was amazing. Many many attempts have been made to quit before. This time it is not about giving up something. I read this book and immediately bought 4 other copies for family and friends to share. Four out of the first five people I know who read this book quit smoking immediately and are all excited about it and all feel great ~ some of whom were not even looking to quit in the short-term. This is worth the read. You owe it to yourself!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow How do you explain to someone who hasn't read this book why it is so powerful? I guess you really can't put it into words, however all I can say is WOW! Allen Carr had a gift for putting things into perspective and into words that speak to the smoker and get across very clearly how and what you need to do to free yourself from the nicotine trap. I am on day 3 of my escape and I feel wonderful. I thought I"d be climbing the walls with lack of nicotine but I feel fine and I'm not craving cigarettes. Do yourself a favour if you are debating buying this book - don't think, just buy it. And while you at it, get a copy for everyone you know and love who suffers from the terrible diseases of the nicotine trap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING!!! I can not believe how good this book is. A friend of a friend told me about the book. I sceptiacally bought it (the price was great) and I started reading. I didn't really think at first that a book would help me to quit smoking. I finished the book and even though it has only been a month since I had my last cigarette I do not miss smoking or crave smoking. This was the easiest process for quitting ever! No withdrawel, no weight gain, etc. The hardest part now is convincing people that I quit smoking because of a book! You have nothing to loose and everything to gain by reading this book. Enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This book changed my life... A woman that works in the same office as me was in the middle of reading this book when she recommended it to me. Immediately I told her that she was wasting her time and there was no book out there that would be able to make me quit smoking. I had been smoking for about 10 years and I had been up to about a pack a day for probably the last 5 years. So, not really expecting much, in my spare time I took the book from her desk and began to read it because as she told me, even if it doesn't work for you, what do you have to lose? Well after getting about 1/4 way into the book, I was convinced that it might actually work for me. I left work and went out to pick this book up immediately. I finished reading the book the next day and haven't smoked since. That was back in September and it is now February. I have since recommended this book to five of my friends who were smokers and they all quit pretty much overnight. I think this book is an excellent read for anyone who actually wants to quit and I wouldn't even suggest trying to quit without it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm confused... I'm still very confused how I became a nonsmoker while reading this book. I was at about the halfway point when I looked at my burning cigarette and couldn't understand why I would want to continue to smoke. At first I was very skeptical at the other claims about this book, but it's true - Allen Carr IS a miracle worker!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even YOU can quit smoking! I read Allen Carr's book one month ago today after picking it up on an impulse at a local Chapters. I actually had no intention of quitting when I read the book, but once I was done and put the book down, I asked myself, what are you going to do? And I have not wanted a cigarette, so I have not smoked. I didn't even have the infamous goodbye cigarette. I was a non-smoker before I even finished the book! After 22 years of loving and hating smoking, it feels so awesome to finally be done with them. I have quit before, with Nicorette gum, with willpower, with lasers... and it has been a white knuckle ride every time. I feel totally free this time - I am 100% convinced that I will not smoke again! I had no withdrawl pains, no crawling skin, no problems concentrating, it was like a switch got flipped. If you smoke, what do you have to loose???

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holy Smoke... I never imagined that a book could help me overcome 44 years of pack-a-day smoking. It did. Using this book, I quit more easily than I had ever imagined possible. If smoke, buy this book. If you don't, buy it for someone who does.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pure Magic I quit smoking at the Allan Carr clinic in Toronto a couple of years ago and am a big fan. I bought ten copies of this book for my smoking friends. Eight of them are now non-smokers and the other two have been 'too busy' to read it so far. This guy is gonna put Players out of business!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Allen Carr is a genius! I tried a gazillion times to quit smoking - gum, patches, zyban, Smokenders - you name it. It was agony. Then my brother gave me this book as a gift. I read it over a weekend and haven't had the slightest desire to smoke since. That was over two years ago. Sometimes I find it hard to believe that I don't have to smoke anymore! Best thing I ever did. This guy is a genius!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing, staggering, brilliant I stopped smoking four years ago by reading this amazing book. If you are one of those smokers who thinks that they can't stop, or that it it needs to be difficult or unpleasant, then think again. Buy this book and break free from the slavery of smoking.
