Stop smoking live group seminar

Smoking client rating 4.8 | 8,459 reviews

The seminar, whether attending at a centre or online via zoom from the comfort of your own home, is the most effective way of benefiting from Allen Carr’s Easyway.

We don’t focus on the downsides of smoking– you know all about those already. Instead the seminar answers the question “What’s so great about being a smoker and why do I continue to do it in spite of the obvious disadvantages?” Understanding that is the key to being set free.

The approach is simple, logical and can even help those who are not sure whether they want to quit smoking.

Group Smoking Seminars – What happens when you attend

Most people who attend our seminars do so as a result of hearing about us from friends, relatives and colleagues who successfully stop smoking with Allen Carr’s method.

In spite of those recommendations, many people arrive feeling nervous about the outcome of their appointment.

Our team is specially trained to reduce this nervousness before and during the seminar, everyone fills out their registration form with details of their smoking history and any other particular issues they might like to highlight.

This helps us make sure that all concerns are covered during the seminar.

Everyone who attends a clinic receives are famous money back guarantee.

If they don’t succeed in stopping smoking when they’ve completed the programme, their fee is refunded.

Our therapists are all former smokers who used Allen Carr’s Easyway to stop smoking.

Using their expert Allen Carr training and wealth of experience, they address each smokers individual fears and concerns about stopping.

Although a lot of information needs to be delivered with therapists, always addresses the individual needs of everyone present in a dynamic way which only a live seminar can achieve.

This is one of the many advantages to attending an Allen Carr’s live seminar over and above using one of our books or other products.

Some people, particularly celebrities, prefer 1 to 1 seminar, and these are also available on special request.

Everyone is encouraged to continue smoking during the seminar until they feel ready to stop.

For this reason, we have regular smoking breaks.

The seminar climaxes with the ritual smoking of a final cigarette and throwing away of cigarettes and lighters.

Yes, people happily throw them away.

As a final relaxing climax in the day the essential points of the seminar are reinforced by a 20 minute relaxation exercise.

Everyone makes themselves comfortable, closes their eyes and listens to the world.

This is a pleasant, harmless and calming experience.

Everyone is given contact details to use in the unlikely event that they require support after the seminar.

Most people succeed after just 15 hour seminar, but we also offer shorter backup seminars over the following month for the few who require them.

These are different from the initial seminar, are specifically designed for those who fail and are completely free of charge.

With the success rate of over 90% based on our money back guaranteed, a huge majority of people will lead to start a new, clean and healthy life, joining more than 30 million people worldwide who have already succeeded with the method.

If you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

We look forward to hearing from you and guiding you to a wonderful, smoke free future.

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.

This is the most important aspect of stopping smoking with Allen Carr’s Easyway – as long as we ‘get your head right’ the physical aspects of the addiction are actually incredibly mild.

We know at this point you will find this hard to believe but it only takes a few hours for us to show you how.

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.

It leaves you in the right frame of mind to quit smoking and by following some simple instructions you will find that the physical withdrawal from nicotine is hardly noticeable.

Frequently Asked Questions

Which of your programmes is best for me? online video programme, seminar or book?

expand_more

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.

What is the money-back guarantee?

expand_more

Our Money Back Guarantee applies only to our seminars for smoking, vaping, alcohol, & 1-1 drugs.

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.

Can I still socialise with my smoker and vaper friends when I stop?

expand_more

Absolutely. When you leave a seminar you are free from the tricks that nicotine plays on the brain and you will not want to smoke or vape again.

This means you are free to socialise with smokers and vapers even while they smoke and not feel the desire to join them.

We know that’s hard to believe – but take our word for it – whether you’re surrounded by smokers at work or at home or throughout your social life – you’ll be a happy non-smoker and won’t be tempted to smoke. Even better – you won’t turn into one of those awful “reformed smokers” – someone who quits smoking and subsequently hassles and harangues their smoking friends.

Your friends, colleagues, and family will be amazed how easily you’ll cope with life as a happy non-smoker and you won’t feel like you’re missing out on anything once you quit smoking.

Are there terrible withdrawal pangs from nicotine?

expand_more

You may believe that nicotine withdrawal is difficult and unpleasant, and this belief would create a tremendous fear of stopping for anyone, but is withdrawal really that bad?

The reality is that smokers and vapers go into withdrawal whenever they put out a cigarette or stop vaping. After just 6 hours of not smoking, you are 97% nicotine-free. Smokers sleep through nicotine withdrawal every night when they go to sleep but it’s so mild that it doesn’t even wake them up!

To overcome your fear of withdrawal, you need the facts, not the fiction. Get the facts about nicotine withdrawal (trust us, you’ll be pleasantly surprised) and quit easily with Allen Carr’s Easyway.
