I had previously read Mr. Carrs other book (The Easyway to Stop Smoking) and gave up sucessfully for 1 month. Unfortunately, I made the mistake of having one cigarette, that led to another and the another and I found my self smoking again. However, I was still going round pushing the benefits of the book (!), after all, Mr Carr told me that having just 1 more cigarette would mean the cycle would start again. He was right.

I therefore took the plunge and bought this book. I took about 1 week to read it - lots of chapters & small print, and as other people have mention he does go on a bit, plus the knowledge that once I got to the end I would no longer smoke did not make it compelling reading.

Read this book and TRUST it. All the way through I was reading and believing BUT still thinking that I would need patches or something to get through the "terrible withdrawal pangs" I would undoubtedly SUFFER - but there really are no withdrawal pangs. Giving up REALLY IS EASY (and I've been smoking for more years than I care to admit - I am {WAS} "MR ADDICTED". I know what you're thinking - I used to think that way too! PLEASE BELIEVE ME AND TRUST IN ALLEN CARR - IF I CAN DO IT, ANYONE CAN. I am now a VERY HAPPY, NON-PANGING (?) NON-SMOKER! And I am so much richer too!
