What is Allen Carr's Easyway to Stop Smoking?
Allen Carr's Easyway to Stop Smoking is the most effective quit smoking method in the world. It is available through seminars, online webcasts, books, CDs and as a Nintendo game.
How does it work?
Allen Carr's Easyway works by helping smokers to completely eliminate their desire to smoke. With no desire to smoke, it doesn't take willpower not to do so.
We achieve this by teaching smokers how to dramatically shift their perspective with respect to smoking. From the right perspective, quitting is easy.
What are my chances of quitting?
Allen Carr's Easyway to Stop Smoking has the highest peer-reviewed success rate of any stop smoking method. Formal studies show a 12-month success rate for a pack-a-day smoker attending the 5-hour seminar is 63.6%. The success rate for all smokers including extremely heavy smokers is 53.3%. To put this in context, Allen Carr's Easyway is 6-10 times more effective than any other method. For most smokers one seminar is all it takes to get free with the security of follow up if you need it.
What happens at a seminar?
The seminars are held by highly skilled facilitators who have themselves quit using Allen Carr's Easyway. They are held in a relaxed atmosphere and there are regular smoke breaks until the ceremonial "final cigarette". During the seminar there will be a moment when you truly understand that there is no reason to smoke. At that moment you are free from the nicotine trap.
What if I need more support?
For most smokers one seminar is all it takes to get free. For those who need more support follow up sessions are available as needed.
What about the terrible physical withdrawal?
The panic feeling that most smokers describe as nicotine withdrawal is nothing to do wth nicotine. It is a physical symptom of a psychological process. It occurs when we want to smoke but can't. This conflict creates feelings of deprivation, sacrifice, anxiety and stress. However, with the Easyway method there is no desire to smoke, and therefore no conflict.
How will I feel once I quit smoking?
You will still be you. From the moment you stub out your final cigarette you are a happy non-smoker. You will enjoy social occasions more without having to worry about the need to smoke. Your ability to cope with stress will improve as you realise you have no further need for a crutch. Physically, within 20 minutes of quitiing the health benefits begin! Trust us, the many priceless rewards of quitting will exceed all your expectations! We hope you begin your journey soon.
Does Easyway work for all tobacco users?
The addiction is to the same substance - nicotine. So yes, Easyway is effective for all nicotine users, including people who smoke cigars or use e-cigarettes, chewing tobacco, snuff, hookahs and nicotine gum or patches.
Does Easyway use pharmaceuticals or other products?
No. Easyway is completely drug free. Our method doesn't require the use of nicotine replacement products, and we don't use lasers or hypnosis.
Is Easyway re-imbursable by my insurance?
Policies vary in terms of which smoking cessation plans are covered but it is worth your while to check with your human resources department or your policy provider. Clients have also been able to use flex spending accounts and cateria plans towards the seminar.
