Mail on Sunday 29 Dec 2019 – Allen Carr quit smoking plan better than Irish Health Service
Great article in the Mail on Sunday discussing the recent results of the randomised controlled trial that showed that Allen Carr’s Easyway to Quit Smoking was almost twice as effective as the Irish Health Services Quit Smoking Service Quit.ie.
This was a ground breaking scientific study and a second trail is under way in England comparing Allen Carr’s Easyway to Quit Smoking to the gold standard UK National Health Service Quit Smoking Program which incorporates nicotine patches, nicotine gum, other nicotine products, and Champix/Chantix (Varenicline) combined with 1-1 weekly psychological support. The results of this study are due soon [now published and show that Allen Carr’s Easyway is at least as good as the best service the NHS offers].
Allen Carr’s Easyway to Quit Smoking is now a proven pharmacological-free method of smoking cessation which has a lack of contraindicators reported, suggesting that there are minimal if any long-term health effects, and which is a one-off, low-cost treatment for smoking cessation.
The standard of living of those who are successful with Allen Carr’s Easyway to Quit Smoking is higher than before they quit because Allen Carr’s Easyway to Quit Smoking is pharmacotherapy‐free. Furthermore, the patient is better off financially much sooner than those who continue to smoke or choose NRT or e-cigarettes since there are no on-going nicotine products to purchase under ACE since the patients are free from cigarettes and nicotine.
Allen Carr’s Easyway to Quit Smoking has helped an estimated 30 million smokers in over 50 countries worldwide during the past 37 years. It is a behavioural therapy (or more accurately a cognitive restructuring/retraining therapy).
