“The government’s smoking cessation strategy came under the spotlight after a study showed the Allen Carr method proved to be nearly twice as effective as existing cessation options.

With close to 6,000 Irish people dying annually from tobacco-related disease, policymakers were urged to give struggling Irish quitters access to the anti-smoking guru’s treatment.

Professor Luke Clancy, a founder and director general of The Tobacco Free Research Institute Ireland, told that the results mean he can now tell patients to use the Allen Carr method.

‘After this trial, I can now recommend Allen Carr treatment and can recommend it to the government if they ask for advice.
