The Easyway method: How does it work?
Allen Carr’s Easyway method has been described as ‘a real smoker’s way to quit smoking’. You carry on smoking until you’re ready to stub out your final cigarette.
Easyway doesn’t focus on the downsides of smoking – instead the method answers the question “What’s so great about being a smoker?”
Understanding that is the key to how to quit smoking & being set free
So you’re thinking of quitting smoking.
There’s only one problem.
Only around 3% of those that try to stop persevere for more than a few days a week.
So what should you do?
Try electronic cigarettes, injections, gum patches, tablets, acupuncture.
These methods might help you get cigarettes out of your mouth for a short while, but none of them will get them out of your head anyway.
You’re probably afraid of all the withdrawal symptoms of the void that might form without vapes & cigarettes.
One you may replace with food of your coffee breaks being less enjoyable of looking for something to do with your hands, especially when you’re out drinking with friends.
You think you’ll have a hard time adjusting to life without cigarettes without something that seemed to be part of you for so long.
But there is another way you can wake up tomorrow morning and feel as if you’ve never, ever smoked.
You can continue to enjoy your coffee, go out, deal with stress and boredom, feel even more relaxed without suffering from unpleasant withdrawal symptoms or gaining weight without longing for cigarettes or envying other smokers.
You can start a new, clean and healthy life, and all you need to do is attend an Allen Carr’s Easyway to Stop smoking Centre.

Smoking and Vaping
OMG. I was lucky enough to have Sam. She was absolutely fantastic. I went through such a range of feelings, emotions, expectations, realisations. She slowly, clearly and methodically covered everything I was thinking, worrying about, doubting….. how she did the whole day, chatting so engagingly, being so kind, understanding, inclusive, positive…. huge hats off, she deserves a medal. I came in positive, got quite emotional as I wasn’t sure I was ready (I was, but I was an addict making excuses), became very nervous about failure, and now I’m completely happy and ok and I genuinely don’t want to smoke. Sam – thank you. You were fantastic today and I feel relief that nicotine isn’t in control anymore. And god knows how, but that big monster isn’t bullying me tonight (first night), I’m completely ok with it. I really feel like I have the tools to deal with this. Thanks so much.
I smoked for 20 years. I live in Turkey. I used to “smoke like a Turk”. I broke free from the nicotine addiction with the seminar about 6 months ago. Unless someone reminds me or I go to some smokey venue I don’t even remember that cigarettes exist. The thought of smoking or nicotine does not cross my mind at all anymore. I did gain some weight but with my newfound energy level and lung capacity I managed to lose much more weight than I gained.
The easyway method has really helped me get my life back only much healthier!
At age 50 I am running again and enjoying a very active lifestyle – I can breathe now, I feel so much more energy and I never even missed smoking!
Having read the easy way to quit smoking book years ago and successfully quitting i don’t know why I waited so long to apply the same to drinking.
The day seminar hosted by Chris was surprisingly enjoyable!
I feel I have the insight to stay booze free but happy to hang out with other drinkers.
So nice to have a doom and gloom free approach laid out in simple terms. I am extremely grateful
Chris was extremely relatable and professional.
Just to let you know that I haven’t felt the need for a cigarette since I visited the clinic on 09/08/2011.
I had been smoking for 35 years up to 25-30 cigarettes daily often chain smoking. I had tried all other methods including the book but the longest I managed was a year.
This time I feel different and although I am only three months free so far I feel so happy and am enjoying life as a non smoker.
I don’t even think about them. I am healthier, fitter and slimmer. I found the clinic brilliant and came out of it on a high which I am still enjoying.
The only reason I am writing this mail is that I am cleaning out my mailbox but couldn’t delete the mail without telling you how beneficial I found the clinic.
It has been about 5 years [since I stopped smoking].
I started smoking when I was about 10-11 years old, and I smoked about 20 cigarettes a day when I was about 14 years old.
Fortunately, I successfully quit cigarettes!
I am truly successful.
I no longer feel dependent and craving for cigarettes.
I don’t need to smoke in my heart!
it worked! I’m an ex-heroin and crack addict who managed to quit those, and then tobacco, but for some reason went back to weed and struggled to stop. Now I’m free!
Frequently asked questions
Which of your programmes is best for me? online video programme, seminar or book?
The seminar boasts the highest success rate of 90% and a full money back guarantee for smoking, alcohol and drugs. It’s the most powerful way of accessing Allen Carr’s Easyway method either at a centre or online via Zoom.
Our online video programmes allow you to stop when you want and where you want. It is not a seminar, neither is it a recording of one, but a standalone programme in its own right. Unlike our centre seminars you will not be able to speak directly with an Allen Carr’s Easyway therapist.
The book, audiobooks and apps allow you to go through the method at your own pace.
Why do I need the method? I can quit on my own
Statistics have shown that the success rate of quitting on your own is less than 3% after a year.
People have all types of erroneous perceptions about their addiction or issue.
The fact that you have been doing this for so many years does not mean that you understand how the addiction or issue mechanism works, in the same way that if you drive a vehicle, you won’t necessarily understand how the engine works. If you need help or a repair, you approach a qualified professional.
At Allen Carr, we specialize in helping people with addictions and issues. We have assisted tens of millions of people and set them free. The purpose of the programme is to share the data that we have accumulated with you and to assist you to perceive things truly and clearly, perhaps for the first time in your life.
The difference is not only in the significantly higher success rate than self-quitting, but also in the quality of quitting—the goal is to quit, but continue enjoying life without feeling a lack or sacrifice.
How successful is Allen Carr’s Easyway? / What is your success rate?
The success rate at Allen Carr’s Easyway Centres is over 50% after 12 months as indicated in independent scientific studies in peer review journals1.
It is also more effective than established government programmes including the gold standard NHS 1-1 service & the Irish Health Service’s Quit.ie based on two randomised controlled trials published in a peer reviewed journals.
What happens when you stop taking nicotine (smoking or vaping)?
When you stop taking nicotine whether through smoking cigarettes or vaping you will suffer withdrawal as for any drug. This page explains why, what you can expect and how bad smoking withdrawal or more correctly nicotine withdrawal will be.

What is the money-back guarantee?
The reason we offer a money-back guarantee is so that people can try our approach without a financial risk. We are unique amongst established smoking, alcohol and drug addiction cessation services in offering this kind of guarantee.
Less than 10% of our clients make a claim but as long as you complete the programme as specified in our terms below, we will be more than happy to refund your fee.
Does your skin pay a price for your smoking and vaping?
Yep. Cigarette & vape smoke contains carbon monoxide, which displaces the oxygen in your skin, and nicotine, which reduces blood flow, leaving skin dry and discoloured. Cigarette smoking also depletes many nutrients, including vitamin C, which helps protect and repair skin damage. You can be the most dedicated gym goer and have the strictest diet, but smoking will negate all that. And sadly an expensive skincare regime won’t be able to get rid of the tell tale signs of smoking.
