The method
Carr’s Easyway method focuses on the reasons why we smoke rather than the reasons we shouldn’t. Since smokers already understand that smoking is unhealthy, costly and often anti–social, the Easyway method eradicates the belief that smoking provides any sort of genuine pleasure or crutch. Additionally, by eliminating feelings of sacrifice and deprivation, this method quells smokers’ fear of stopping.

• A global network of clinics in 38 countries: 250,000 smokers treated at clinics to date

The results
• Based on the three-month money-back guarantee offered at all Allen Carr’s Easyway Clinics, the success rate is over 90%
• Independent studies indicate that even after 12 months the success rate remains over 50%
• An estimated 10 million smokers have been cured worldwide by clinics and books
