The Easyway method is as successful for women as it is for men, but many of the issues are perceived differently by women - as their questions in Easyway sessions reveal - and particular difficulties face women who want to quit the habit. This book examines these differences and difficulties - engaging the reader in a personal consultation - and offers specific, targeted advice on how to resolve them. The number of women, especially young women, smokers is rising inexorably, storing up a frightening array of future health problems. This ground-breaking book will help many to kick the fatal habit.

Carr changed how I thought of the whole process of quitting. Marvelous book. This comes from a now non-smoker who smoked for 28 years. Good luck to all!
I bought the other one five years ago in Romania, right after I met my husband - he is a non-smoker so he asked me to quit. I carried it with me when I moved to the States. I read about 20 pages and forgot about it: I didn't really want to quit smoking, my wonderful husband loved me in spite of my addiction, so I put the book away, I buried it somewhere in my growing personal library (I'm an avid reader with an M.A. in literature, so I always buy books).
Last November-December we decided to start trying for a baby. And I knew I couldn't do that if I continued smoking. I realized for the first time that I needed to quit smoking, that I needed to make a change, but then every time I smoked I felt terribly insecure and unsure about my decision. I must admit, I didn't really want to quit smoking. I thought I will never be able to do it, I want a baby, but I loved smoking so much and I felt I was such a weak person, I was about to read this book just to prove myself that I tried something else and it just didn't work. I even bought myself a huge supply of Njoy electronic cigarettes and I was about to smoke those even though I didn't like them just because I always needed my fix. And almost all the way through the book I had doubts, I kept smoking, and I had the feeling my life still depended on that awful cigarette. That until I got to the last part when he asks you to smoke one more time and describes everything you feel when you smoke. His description was so similar with everything I felt while smoking that cigarette, I realized all of a sudden that I must have been fooling myself my entire smoking life! I didn't like smoking, I was just another addict, and I needed to do something about that. So I went to my laptop and I wrote down the reasons I wanted to quit smoking and Carr's rules when quitting. And all of a sudden everything just made sense to me! I didn't want to smoke anymore! I still had a few pages left to read, I still had my "last cig" to smoke, but I decided I didn't need one, I didn't need any ritual to quit smoking, I gave all my Njoys to my husband and told him to throw them away, I didn't need to continue my addiction, with every minute that passed I was one step away from the cigarettes!
It's been a month since that moment. I'm smoke free and I don't have any more cravings. I actually barely had any cravings except for like the first 3 days and then I would just take a deep breath like Carr recommends at some point and the cravings were gone. I started walking and exercising... walking helped me a lot in the first week, but after that week I just realized how much I just loved walking so I continued up to this day. Plus walking helps me feel less hungry. I lost 10 pounds since I quit because I did not use any substitutes, chocolate, or anything of that sort. I know I will never go back to smoking.
I recommended the book to all my smoking students, and next week I am going to send my Romanian version back to Romania... my mother wants to quit smoking too now that she heard my story - she has been smoking for almost 30 years. I just know Carr's book CAN and WILL make her quit too. After that the book will probably go to someone else and the chain will continue.
Thank you Allen Carr, rest in peace!
Update: It's been almost 6 months and I am still nicotine free. I reached my ideal weight after losing 30 pounds in spite of the fact that I quit. I am an entirely new person, so much happier than before! I look younger, slimmer, I spent my winter without shivering near the corner of the office where I work trying to puff my life away, I didn't get any colds. I can't even believe that I used to be a smoker! Again, I recommend this book to everyone, it will set you free!
Update 2, 12/28/2014. It's been more than two years since I quit smoking. I have now a wonderful 5 month healthy baby, a beautiful family, and I feel great. Yesterday near the entrance of a store I saw a mother holding her toddler with one hand and holding her cigarette with the other, and I tried to go pass her as fast as I could so that my baby in the stroller would not smell the cigarette smoke. Then I realized that mother could have been me. Thanks to Allen Carr I am not one of those mothers poisoning their bodies and their babies' bodies. So please read this book and stop smoking.
YOU DON'T HAVE TO WORRY - IT DOESN'T PRESSURE YOU INTO ANYTHING . HE EVEN TELLS YOU TO SMOKE WILL YOU READ IT.
Advice: Read it fast, like over a weekend then toss you pack in the trash never to return. Life changing !!!
