A doctor recommended that I read a book by Allen Carr called, "Easy way to stop smoking". There is another one called, "The only way to stop smoking, permanently". I read the first book and I can honestly say that I had just about quit before I finished it. When I had finished it, I found that I didn't want to smoke. I continued to do my normal things like going out to the pub etc. and I did not get any withdrawal symptoms like I had when I had tried to quit before. I couldn't believe it. Both books are published by Penguin and I hope you all will give them a try.

Unfortunately, Mr Carr did die of lung cancer but he stayed alive a lot longer than he would have done if he had carried on smoking.

Good luck to all who try this method.

Yes! Allen Carr's easy method book worked for me. If you've tried everything else and failed - READ THIS BOOK. My lung had collapsed 3 times over the years, had a bad cough and my wheezing at night would wake me. I thought I'd never be able to quit.

In the past I've tried Hypnosis and a special acupressure Ring in the ear - neither worked. Nicotine patches gave me a rash. Nicotine gum had me going to the Dentist with inflamed gums. Chantex had too many side effects for me to try. I even went to the local hospital for the free smoking cessation class - Right off the bat they stated "You definitely will not be able to stop smoking without some form of drug therapy."- NOT! I even Googled "what did you have to hear for you to stop smoking?" Nothing came up that helped until I read Allen Carr's Book. No scare tactics in it, just the facts - the real facts. I needed good logic and psychology to quit which the book provided - WITHOUT DRUGS! In the opening chapter it states not to quit smoking until you've finished the book - I liked that, so I took 4 days to read the book but on day 4 I quit and have never had a cigarette since! He explains how "the willpower method" will fail you. I read about this book from this post.

I thank you Jennifer.

Yes, Allen Carr's book worked for me too! Have absolutely no desire to ever take up smoking again! Highly recommended.

I quit many years ago after reading Allen Carr's book. I had tried so many times before. I have never ever have any desire to start smoking again.

Horsetail extract capsules is all you will ever require to quit smoking. The natural silica compounds in it does the trick.
