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.
Because of this i am able to finally leave my phone out of the bedroom for two nights in a row now and have a blissful sleep. I used to experience panic at the thought of not having my phone playing a documentary or a show or a podcast in the background as I was sleeping! Now its easier to fall asleep, remain asleep throughout the night and wake up fresh and full of energy. Thank you 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.
If you’re like me, you are very skeptical about what this claims it can do. I’ve tried to quit drinking many times but I would get grouchy and I missed it terribly…… It’s only been four days but I know it will be permanent. To all of you doubting that I can know it’s permanent …. I would think the same thing …… Alcohol used to be my favorite thing and now I can’t stand the thought of it. I feel great for the first time in years. No more being a slave to it ! F you alcohol!
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.
I don’t feel like I am on a diet, I just want to eat, healthy food and drink lots of water.
I haven’t struggled to adapt it just feels natural to eat this way
I feel great, finding it really easy best thing I have ever done. I don’t feel like I am on a diet just happy eating healthy food
The past month has been very easy, I’m amazed how my attitude has changed towards eating and food
Actually enjoying what I am eating, feeling more confident
I would like to thank you for your help, I found the session very helpful

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 program 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.
