Allen Carr’s Easyway to Stop Smoking in Ireland

Smoking client rating 4.8 | 8,459 reviews

Allen Carr’s Easyway organisation has been helping smokers stop smoking since 1985.

It uses no gimmicks or aids, is equally effective for heavy or casual smokers, and requires little or no willpower and you need not even put on weight. It works because we understand smoking.

All Allen Carr therapists are ex-smokers who used the method themselves to get free. We won’t lecture you on all the reasons you should not smoke (you know them already) instead, we will destroy the illusions that keep you smoking and show you how to get free!

What happens in a Seminar?

It is the opposite of the willpower method that concentrates on the reasons you shouldn’t smoke: the health, the money, the slavery, and the stigma. Smokers know all that! We focus instead on why you continue to smoke in spite of the obvious disadvantages.

It is in reality fear that keeps you hooked.  Fear that you’ll have to give up your crutch or pleasure
Fear that you won’t be able to enjoy life or handle stress
Fear that you have to go through an awful trauma to get free
Fear that you will never be completely free from the craving

We remove these fears

The live group seminar is by far the most effective way to use Allen Carr’s Easyway whether at a centre or online using Zoom via a computer, tablet or smartphone.

Group Smoking Seminars – What happens when you attend

Understanding why you smoke

The programme does not use any scare tactics or shocking images of the harm that smoking does. You know all about that already.

Instead we examine and correct the misconceptions that keep all smokers trapped. We don’t just look at the physical addiction but the mental aspect as well.

You may be surprised that the addiction is 1% physical and 99% mental.

What is it that keeps you hooked?

Smokers believe that they get some sort of genuine pleasure or benefit from smoking.

That it helps them enjoy life, handle stress, relax, socialise and control their weight.

For this reason they fear that even if they do succeed in stopping they will be miserable and feel deprived for the rest of their lives.

In addition to that fear, smokers also fear the downsides of smoking; the health worries, the stigma, the cost, the slavery and although they work hard not to think about them they remain like a huge dark cloud at the back of a smoker’s mind.

These are the fears that keep smokers hooked.

The method removes your need and desire to smoke and removes the fears that keep you hooked.

You will finish the seminar as a happy non-smoker without any need for useless aids or substitutes.

“But what about the terrible physical withdrawal pangs from nicotine?”

The physical withdrawal from nicotine is so slight that most smokers do not realise that they are drug addicts. What smokers suffer when they try to stop with other methods is the misery and depression caused by the feeling that they are being deprived of a pleasure or crutch. The beauty of our method is that it removes the need and desire to smoke. Once you are in the right frame of mind and you follow our simple instructions, the nicotine withdrawal is scarcely noticeable.

We do not give you useless aids, gimmicks or substitutes. No nicotine patches or gum. No inhalators, no nasal sprays. No needles

Our Claims

Our method is so successful and popular because:

– We remove your conflict of will

– There are no bad withdrawal pangs

– It is instantaneous and easy

– There is no shock treatment and there are no gimmicks

– It is equally effective for long-term heavy smokers as for casual smokers

– You need not put on weight

– You need not miss smoking

We expect you to be sceptical of these claims, but you don’t have to take our word for it. Smokers mainly attend our clinics because they know people who have found it easy to stop using our way and who do not miss smoking at all. You will succeed just as millions before you.
