    Just got this book by Allen Carr (not the raving homo) and wanted to see if anyone had read it and if it worked. My mate recommended it to me and it stopped him smoking so gonna give it a go and see if it works.

    Shame you don't speak from personal experience. Shouldn't you be spending your time more productively? You could always create another alias.

    Only way your ever going to give up is if you truly, 100% want to.

    Can try all the tricks in the book, but if you still WANT to smoke you wont be able to quit.

    Agree man just lack willpower, quit enough times and it's crept back into my life. Just wondering if anyone had read this book and it worked.

    Cheers man, good to know. Just a bit of a skeptic when it comes to this sort of stuff, safe for the reply.

    I don't see this fascination with completly stopping smoking, I managed to quit after being on 20 reds a day for a few months, then started again, then quit, then just smoked weed, now i don't smoke but i might have one after quite a few beers, definatly have some if on uppers. Just don't wake up and smoke or smoke during the day, if you want to smoke then you won't fully quit, but don't beat yourself up over the odd fag now and then. Moderation seen

    it only works if you read his easy way to stop smoking book first, but that didn't work for you

    I read the book, but I had already given up about 2 months before hand so I can't tell you if it works or not. Pretty interesting read though, the ideas are pretty solid.

    ^^ Nah, that don't work. My grandfather gave up when he found out he had cancer. When they couldn't do nothing for him anymore he though fuck it, if I'm gonna die I'm gonna die smoking!

    Getting it and surviving it might though. Bit of a risky way really...
