Excellent . It really works .
Stopping drinking was a little harder than stopping smoking because of the societal push to drink. I had my first (day long ) session with Allen Carr earlier this year followed by two booster sessions. I now don’t drink and feel liberated after many years of having alcohol in my life. Thank you Allen Carr.
4 years free for me and my partner… honestly …. it’s the best thing I ever did and I’ve gained so much more back than smoking took from me. Made the best memories hiking up Scottish mountains with my doggies. Would never have done that before. Thank you for giving me my life back. This method works its all mental and this man breaks it down so simply
Thank you for changing my life I feel so much better already I would recommend this program thank you so much for being there to support me even after the seminar ❤️
I…found it rather boring and repetitive, had my last vape, threw the ElfBar into the bin and, miracle of miracles, I have not caped for 333 days since – the first time in 20 years that I have not regularly ingested some form of nicotine.
If you want to stop then this is the way to stop smoking & quit vaping.
Day flew by and was easy to be free!
Came across this one by chance and had been struggling to get on top of my debt and within days it changed my thinking and stopped me using my credit card to buy things i don’t need..result! Allen Carr truly is an unsung hero.
If you feel like caffeine is controlling you then this is for you!
It helped me quit and I feel fantastic almost every morning I wake up!
I get out of bed now without snoozing my alarm once!
I had quit smoking and switched to vaping in January 2012 and although I really thought I enjoyed vaping.
I hated the control it had over me. I hated that I got anxious when I was on a plane / train or other place where I couldn’t vape for extended periods.
I slept with my vape and it was the last thing I did at night and the first thing I did every morning.
I was dubious of Allen Carr’s Easyway working but I felt hopeful. I took my last suck of my vape machine, I packaged about £200 worth of machinery, batteries, liquids, and paraphernalia and gave it away.
I won’t ever smoke / vape again. Thanks, a million, zillion thank yous, I feel free – 182 days and 21 hours and 12 minutes and seven seconds FREE

Allen Carr’s Easyway to Stop Smoking
The book is the bestselling stop smoking book of all time worldwide – having sold tens of millions of copies in more than 40 languages.
The global bestseller was fully updated and upgraded recently, titled Allen Carr’s Easyway to Quit Smoking.
Both bestselling books are based on the original version of the method delivered via Allen Carr’s Easyway to Stop Smoking Live Seminars and the upgraded version covers all kinds of issues that have arisen since the original book was published in 1985.
Live Seminars (now also available via Zoom) remain the most powerful and effective way of using the method (the books and online video programme were created to help smokers who didn’t have access to the live seminars).
Allen Carr’s Easyway method has been applied to many other addictions & issues leading to further bestselling books such as ‘Easyway to Stop Drinking’, ‘Easyway to Quit Emotional Eating’, ‘Good Sugar, Bad Sugar’, along with books dealing with vaping, gambling, cocaine, cannabis, caffeine, fear of flying, debt, tech addiction, mindfulness, and fear of flying.
