"Instantly I was freed from my addiction. I found it not only easy but unbelievably enjoyable to stay stopped." (Sir Anthony Hopkins)

One long infomercial. Save your money.

Wow. Really? I know this is supposedly a good way to quit smoking but this book is absolutely awful. It doesn't deliver on its title at all and is nothing but a big sales pitch for the program, without any ACTUAL advice or tips. Big disappointment.

Amazing!

If you could sum up The Easy Way for Women to Stop Smoking in three words, what would they be?

It feels good that a person could be so supportive of the differences for men and women's addictions. I have been struggling with my smoking addiction for years. It wasn't because of anyone elses judgements or reactions to me being a smoker. I just hated that something could be in control of my life and I wasn't able to have the ability to take it or leave it. It was very frustrating that this was the one area of my life I didn't feel strong.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Easy Way for Women to Stop Smoking?

When I realized that I could stop smoking cold turkey and just be done with out any issues and with out having to replace the nicotine and deal with that addiction after the habit of smoking. I was not looking foreward to a long drawn out with drawl cycle. Put them down, about 5 days of mild discomfort, and I am done!

Which scene was your favorite?

When he talks about the different stresses placed on women that are not the same for men. How those stresses work in our addiction cycles. Then how our addictions are connected to our emotions not just a pure physical habit which is why it tends to be more difficult for us to let go.

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

The most shocking comment, which he did back up, was that smoker's tend to actually be the alpha's in our culture. It made perfect sense and it sort of helped with some self esteem surrounding this issue for me.

Allen Carr is a genius

Allen Carr is the only way I've ever been able to happily stop smoking. I stopped successfully once on his program however when I was very drunk had a cigarette and it put me back in the trap. I've stopped again and this time I know it's for life. I'm so happy to see what life brings to me and I'm so glad that I made the right decision. Smoking has zero place in my life.

Amazing Author who has helped millions..!

Any additional comments?

I am not a gambler, but I read now read four books by Allen Carr: On smoking, alcohol, gambling, and debt...because I was so impressed with his unique approach to addictions.

I recently checked out his website. He company offers seminars and online classes around the world. I have a loved one who is a CHAIN SMOKER. He is also OVERWEIGHT...after being a skinny guy for much of his life.

I also have another family member who had a darling figure until she got married and had three children. I am interested in helping both of them.

BTW, on his website and on YouTube are video TESTIMONIALS from celebrities such as: Anthody Hopkins, Aston Kutcher, Ellen Degernes, and Richard Branson. Check them out.

Just what I've been looking for.

this book tells the truth. My mind has lied to me for 40 years approximately. I quit smoking 3 or 4 times but every time was so sure that I couldn't be tempted that I would smoke with someone to socialize and weeks later I would be hooked again. Just like he explains in this book. now I have COPD , and I'm on oxygen half the day , my feet are turning dark red. and my heart hurts so much I have to take Nitro. and yet last night I still kept smoking. I finished the book this morning. and intend to Play It over and over. I recommended this book to my daughter who is trying to stop smoking also.

Same idea as the original but much preferred voice reader

I’ve read the original twice before and was never really committed to quitting. Don’t take this as the book wasn’t effective; it is only as effective as the reader wants to be about quitting. The content itself was quality from the very first reading. It is subtle, don’t expect some crazy magic plot twist. But it is spot on in terms of approach and this is the way to go if you are serious about quitting.

I ‘quit’ for a few months after reading it the first time with half a resolution to not smoke anymore. Obviously, I always knew I’d get back to it because I wasn’t committed. This book isn’t black magic, which is why it’s good! It is logical and real and fundamental in its content.

I listened to the original a second time but the downfall of the original is that it does come off a bit repetitive and arrogantly stubborn with a tone that can be offputting at times. Going through it the second time was more difficult because I already knew its course; and sitting through a few parts didn’t really inspire me to go forward.

But I knew the content was good and it would work when my mind would become resolute in wanting to quit. I knew at that time, this is the only way to go about it for once and for all. I knew having been through the approach, that it’d be the only way to quit not just for a couple of months but for good and for life!

I got to that point a few weeks ago finally. I dread having to listen to it the third time but I needed to come back to it one way or another. So I got this book and am so glad I did! It was a lot easier to go through than the original recording, the readers voice was both soothing and enjoyable. I was surprised by how the idea is still all there but there were so few parts that I thought “it’s the original book with a different voice.” So kudos to Allen Carr for that.

This book isn’t as “for women’s” as I had expected which is good! It does touch on key parts of issues specific to women but it was a lot more subtle than I thought it might be; it didn’t drag on and on like how some things are “for women” so they feel the need to overdo it and drains you out.

Read this, if you’re serious and prefer a more soothing tone than the authors in the original. I’d still go and listen to the original again but now I’d much prefer this audible.

Quitting update: have gotten to that “stage” that Allen talked about in his method. I don’t fight against the urge to smoke anymore - I don’t have the urge. And every now and then when I am with smokers especially friends who I have built a past time with over smoking, I do feel a second of physically reacting to it because smoking was so strongly associated with certain people/social settings. However, they’re not urges like I used to have them from someone just mentioning remotely relating to cigarettes. Even in these settings now, my body goes through about a second or two of a confused state whereby “hey, don’t we usually smoke now?” But I am not resisting against urges because I know I don’t want to have one - my body might be a bit confused because it’s what we’ve been smoking for so long and now we abruptly aren’t and that’s just that. So it’s like WTF what happened there, out of nowhere too - a pack every day to 2 days at most then one day, just nothing.

This is why I say that in the right mind, this would have been the only way out for me. As for cravings, the physical yearning is so so mild compared to the physical withdrawal of say, heroine but more importantly - it is amped up in how you feel towards that little yearning for a cigarette. Since this book removes the urge from your core, if you do it properly, your mind knows that it’s just the nicotine trying not hold onto one of its fav victims. So the actual “cravings/urges” for me are extremely mild to how they used to be - I was a desperate feign, trust me - and every time it comes up, it lasts for about 3 seconds AT MOST because my brain is smarter now to understand the situation with my body and it reacts accordingly, “it’s your little nicotine buddy, trying your attention like a child because it wants it’s feed and playing you hard for it”. Knowing that, the feeling is doesn’t have any fuel and is squashed quickly and easily. Compared to me before - it’s actually amazing that Allen Carr came up and shared such a simple and obvious school of thought on quitting cigarettes yet without it - I’d have no way to imagine myself not a smoker.

I will say this - if you aren’t 100% fully committed to quitting, you won’t. It’s as simple as that. When I came back to it this time, I was finally at that point where I was ready and serious about quitting for good. I knew the first time, that I’d be back on it eventually even though I agreed with everything on the first read of the original.

RIP Allan Carr. Not all heroes wear capes, your life and work have helped millions including myself.

I'm a non-smoker!

I finish this book in two days which is unreasonable considering the time crunch I've been under. But it was so spot-on and so enlightening and I'm happy to say that even at this moment I'm breathing easier I just finished the book!

2nd Time

I was a non smoker for 6 years after listening to the original version. Stupidly fell into the trap again for 2 years, with all the old excuses and kept putting off listening again.....well not anymore! Back to being a healthy happy non smoker and it is just as easy. what are you waiting for? 😀

Follow all the instructions

The content of this book highly relevant
I found the narration at times irritating maybe a bit patronising. ...but mainly that pethaps it was my own frustrating approach towards it and not wanting to hear everything I thought I knew!! I just wanted an answer....but you must read/listen to the book in its entirety..skip nothing do everything it says and only focus on the reason you have this book in the first place.
I am a non smoker

If I can, you can

After 20 years (I can't believe I'm actually typing that) of being a smoker that swore to myself that I would quit soon without ever really trying let alone succeeding, I finally decided that enough was enough and bought this audiobook. I was sceptical that it would work for me as I have always seen myself as someone with very little willpower and to be honest I thought I enjoyed smoking and that it was my little guilty pleasure I did for myself. When I put out my last cigarette at the end of the book, I wanted badly to believe it really was my last, but there was still a niggle of doubt in the back of my head that I would be buying a new pack the very next day. Well, I'm 2 weeks a non-smoker now and while I can't say I haven't had pangs, they haven't been strong enough to outweigh the effect of the book on my thinking and I am thinking less and less about smoking altogether. I haven't quite had the 'yippee' moment Alan talks about, but I am realising more and more just how much of my thoughts and time was taken up by smoking, how good it feels to be free of the guilt and shame of it (especially as I have children) and how much more in control of my finances I feel! Honestly, for all it costs, if you're a smoker and you don't think you want to be any more, you really have nothing to lose by buying Easyway and giving it a go. Good luck!

Wow!!

After getting lots of flak from the girls at work about nipping out for quick ciggie break, I decided to get this book and show everyone I was reading it so that when I finished I could tell them all I was a lost cause and would have to continue smoking as nothing would work for me.
It only went and bloody worked!!
I'm now a happy non smoker to the point where people ask me how my non smoking is going and I look at them confused before I remember "oh, I used to smoke..."
The narrator is lovely, the stories made me giggle, there was so much I could relate to in the book and it has literally changed my life.
If you are a woman who smokes, whether you want to give up or not, get this book. It's the best gift you could ever give yourself.

more spesific than the original one!

i also found the reader really good. even the book is repetative, there is a reason for it. it makes the words more poweful, makes them go more deeper that just on a conscious mind for a moment.
