Testimonials from Toronto seminar attendees

"I tried many times to quit but it wasn't until I discovered Allen Carr's Easyway To Stop Smoking that it finally clicked. I went to a 5-hour seminar in Toronto and never smoked again. Never had another craving. Not one. Not when I drank, golfed, after dinner, on a trip, with coffee, after sex, nothing."

Humble" Howard Glassman, Toronto

"I want you to know that I am so happy to be free from smoking.... I not only quit; I actually enjoyed the first few days of not smoking, which had previously been horrible for me to deal with, and in fact, as promised, I had no withdrawal symptoms. The first few months I had such a sense of relief and enjoyment rather than fear and doubt about the decision to quit."

Jason Vogel, Realtor, Toronto

Feedback from attendees

"Damian was fantastic! Health Canada should be spending their non-smoking campaign $ on this seminar instead of the completely ineffective advertising they target towards smokers."
