"DO NOT WAIT - BUY IT NOW!!!!!!"
Ok, i feel like i have to set the scene a little here, firstly i buy many many things off the net, read many books, try out lots of software, but never ever leave a review or feedback. im only doing it now cuz i think this audiobook has CHANGED MY LIFE FOR EVER!!!
I wont bother you with the full story of how many i was smoking or how long for i simply want to say that no matter how sceptical you are (and i really was, in fact didnt buy it many times on occasions when i was thikning about it) this audiobook works!!
Im a real sceptic with all things like this and am terribly weak willed but i think this book does a few key thing that make it work:
1. Changes your subconsious perception of smoking and why you feel you need
2. Impregnantes in your mind the real reason you smoke
3. reminds you how enjoyable it will be not to smoke
..the result is YOU WILL, and i really mean this, not only give up smoking overnight,(but heres the best bit) find it EASY, and (wait for it) ENJOYABLE!!
Its so hard to believe but i can assure you i have gone from 40 smokes a day to none, its not beEN hard, its not been torture, its been ENJOYABLE and its been enlightening!!! DO It now YOU WONT LOOK BACK....
I am not reviewing the audio book but I read this 14 months ago and stopped smoking immediatley afterwards.
It is written in such a way that you think Allen Carr wrote it for you. I am going to get this version though as my wife wants it.
It is a fantastic piece of work and simple and clear and concise. Instead of the millions our government spend on ridiculous advertising campaigns they should recommend you read this book, in it you will find out why they don't.
I usually don't write reviews about any books or downloads I have made in the past, but I must do in this book as it deserves the recognition. I have been a smoker for 20 years. I'm 32, I started when I was 12. I've tried many times to stop smoking using various methods, none worked. I was always extremely distressed and unhappy when I would light up another cigarette.
This book changed everything. I was sceptical when I first got it, but listening to it has made me realise that I gain absolutely nothing from smoking and I gain more from not smoking. All the myths I had about smoking (boredom, stress, etc) had been dispelled. At the end of this book, I found myself wanting to quit and I've not had a cigarette since. I feel incredibly happy, actually found myself smiling cause I am free.
When I came home tonight, I realised that Allen Carr had actually passed away. I usually never feel emotional for someone I have never met, but this man was a true hero and he literally saved my life.
Thank You Allen Carr.
You will be remembered and respected by people you have cured for years to come.
I smoked almost a pack a day for 30 years, then I bought this audiobook last March. I finally listened to it in April and gave up smoking right away. I havent smoked one cigarette since and have been smoke free for 9 months now. There is no magic - just a simple, compelling expalantion of why we smoke and why in fact, we don't really either want or need to.
I wish I had done this years ago - but it's never too late. What have you got to loose?
I have been smoking 20-30 a day for 17 years. I listened to this audiobook and on the 28th December I stopped smoking.It was easy and I have not craved one since. Brilliant book, and actually works
"I don't know how but it works."
I haven't got the audio but 9 weeks ago I picked up a paper copy from the bookshop and three days later I finished the book and smoked my last cigarette. I was smoking thirty plus a day. I'm amazed it worked.
It's a must buy!
I listened to this on the 4th of April 2008 and havn't even thought of having another fag. Even going to the pub or out socialising has not proved difficult. I recommend this book every time.
I went to one of the Allen Carr courses 4 weeks ago, having read the book. I haven't smoked since, and have found it pretty easy. I used the audio book over the last couple of weeks whilst in the car or in bed, and it's a great way to reinforce the facts in your mind. Buy this now, it's great!
"Excellent book and amazing advice"
What a Brilliant book well worth the read and has helped me with my giving up smoking.
"It is the best way to stop smoking"
Incredible! Now smoke free! Love it. Relax and listen to this, you won't regret it.
The only problem is the narrator sounds like I imagine the voice of the telecaster announcer would sound if Orwell's 1984 existed today, so one star off for that - but it DOES work
