Allen Carr (1934-2006) was a chain-smoker for over 30 years. In
1983, after countless failed attempts to quit, he went from 100
cigarettes a day to zero without suffering withdrawal pangs,
without using willpower and without gaining weight. He realised
that he had discovered what the world had been waiting for - the
Easy Way to Stop Smoking - and embarked on a mission to help cure
the world's smokers. Allen Carr is now recognised as the world's
leading expert on helping smokers to quit, having sold over 15
million books. His Easyway method has been successfully applied to
a host of issues including weight control, alcohol and other
addictions and fears.
