How to Stop Smoking with Allen Carr’s Easyway

We have a number of programmes which will enable you to stop smoking easily, painlessly and without the need for willpower.

It’s been described as ‘a real smoker’s way to quit’. You carry on smoking until you’re ready to stub out your final cigarette. Easyway doesn’t focus on the downsides of smoking – smokers know all about those already. Instead the method answers the question ‘What’s so great about being a smoker?’ Understanding that is the key to being set free.

Clinical Trial Allen Carr's Easyway

National 12 month Clinical Trial finds Allen Carr’s Easyway almost twice as effective as other smoking cessation methods available on Health Service.

After a 3 year study 51% reported continuing abstinence.

Smokers following Allen Carr’s Easyway were about 6 times more likely to be abstinent, assessed after 13 months, compared to similar smokers in the general population.

The 1 year quit rate was 55%. A long smoking history or many earlier unsuccessful attempts to quit did not predict failure.
