Six hours to a smoke-free future

The Easyway to Stop Smoking seminar is the heart and soul of the Allen Carr method and boasts the highest peer-reviewed success rate in the tobacco cessation industry.

the seminar day

The seminar lasts around six hours and are generally held from 1-7 pm. The atmosphere is informal and relaxed and attendees are welcome to smoke throughout, so five smoke breaks are built into the seminar. A symbolic "final cigarette"  is smoked during the fifth smoke break and your expectation should be to leave the session as a happy non-smoker. 


los angeles details and facilitator

We have been running Easyway To Stop Smoking seminars in Los Angeles since 2004. They are held approximately every 6 weeks on weekend dates from 1-7 pm. 

Our west coast facilitator Collene Curran, like all Allen Carr facilitators, quit with the Easyway method herself in 2004 and she has been running extremely effective seminars since 2007. In Collene's words: 

“From the day I bought my first pack until the day I quit 28 years later, I never went a full day without smoking. The thought of quitting terrified me. A life without cigarettes seemed impossible. That was before a friend recommended Easyway. Allen Carr’s Easyway taught me that quitting isn’t a sacrifice – it’s a freedom. Quitting smoking is one of the best things I’ve ever done. The only thing I enjoy more than being a happy non-smoker is helping other smokers find freedom.

feedback from attendees

"Collene was absolutely brilliant. Not just as a counselor/teacher/mentor for your company, but as one of the best deliverer of information that I've ever experienced. And I'm 46; I've through hundreds of seminars. I needed to give her a hug afterwards to thank her for changing my life FOREVER. Absolutely one of the key reasons that the information was thoroughly received and comprehended. Thank you for the gift of your program and especially for giving us Collene."
