    Don't know if you heard of Allen Carr's method. For those who havn't :
    I have smoked for over 7 years. Past 2 years I was literally smoking 40-a-day. Borrowed A.Carr's method book from a friend (who gave up smoking) and after reading it I gave up too. We did spread the word among our smoking friends, some failed to give up but many more did. Looking back I can understand why one silly book made me give up my habit.
    It is definately worth a shot, for those who did not know about Easyway (theres also Easyweight- about losing weight- however it's pretty crap).
    But i recommend giving up smoking with Allen's book- or at least giving it a try. Worked for me and many others.

    Good luck with beating the habit :)

    I'm also an easyway convert... 20 yrs of heavy smoking and i quit without any withdrawals, mood swings or cravings after reading Allen Carrs book... I wasn't even 100% commited to stopping, just thought i'd give the book a read since my mum bought it me for xmas

    Shame about the easyweight book though. I was going to give it a try but if it's crap i think i'll save my money

    I gave up once with Allen Carrs method and I must admit it was the easiest quit ever.

    Seemed to only work the once for me though. After a longish break I returned to the cigs :(

    Tried AC method again and it didn't work at all. I read the book again, and instead of nodding and agreeing with it all, it made me angry:confused:

    So yes, I would highly recommend the book, but then never smoke again ;)

    yes I agree, he is terribly annoying. When I was reading it first time I was constantly saying to myself 'Hell, I know all this , no need to repeat 100 times'. Nonetheless, it did work, there surely was some bits of NLP in the book .. Actually normally I would be tempted to find out exactly why it worked but in this case- I don't wanna know :D
    KD: maybe try a video instead of the book? apparently he made some.
    And easyweight just tries to turn you into vegetarian, by reassuring you that yes you can eat what you want! (and then sneaky argument to make you believe eating meat, some carbs, processed food, milk isn't what you want lol). Worked on me for 2 days and then I got served a roast dinner and everything i 'learnt' went away very quickly lol :D

    I did give up eventually using the KD method which was personalized to suit my own weird idiosyncrasies.:D

    Allen Carr. The author of the book :)
