From the desk of John Dicey, Worldwide Director, Allen Carr’s Easyway

The Irish Independent newspaper reports that former editor of Vogue (Paris) Carine Roitfeld regrets using cigarettes in so many of her fashion shoots. She was editor of French Vogue magazine for ten years and left her post in January.

Roitfeld states that she wishes she’d never shown models smoking in her pictures as she knows it probably had a profound effect on many young women. Apparently her sudden change of heart has more to do with her husband having stopped smoking than the fact that she is no longer employed as editor of a seriously influential magazine. What a tragedy that she has only now seen the light – or perhaps she new very well what she was doing all along?

Talking about the impact the photo shoots that she selected were likely to have had on young female readers of the magazine Roitfeld is reported as saying “….some are very young, and they’re like sponges. So if your girl [in the photo shoot] is smoking a cigarette, they can say, ‘Oh, my God, it’s smart to smoke a cigarette, it’s good for the look, so I’m going to have one, too.’ And it’s totally stupid.”

Smokers young and old can find it easy to stop smoking by using Allen Carr’s Easyway method. Learning how to stop smoking is actually really easy…when you know how. Furthermore – knowing how youngsters have been ruthlessly and knowingly exploited by the fashion industry and movie industry for decades by creating poster boys and girls for the tobacco industry can be a really motivating factor and can even spark an attempt for a smoker to try and quit smoking. At that time it’s so important that they get help to stop smoking from a proven method. Thank you to everyone who recommends Allen Carr’s Easyway
