About the book
Allen Carr’s book The Easy Way to Quit Smoking is based on a unique method that the author has tried on himself. The first cigarette tastes disgusting, so the mind deceives the person: «I don’t get any pleasure, so I can quit whenever I want.» This closes the trap of nicotine addiction, which the tobacco industry is carefully preparing for us, together with public opinion. The smoker believes that a cigarette helps to relax, relieve stress, but it only takes away health and money, giving nothing in return. A dose of nicotine works faster than an injection of heroin. 20 puffs — 20 doses of the drug. The author debunks fears, describes the types of smokers and all the stages of liberation. Millions of people, having carefully read the recommendations of the book, got rid of harmful addiction.
• Make sure it’s easy to quit smoking.
• Understand that smoking is a type of addiction: the habit is easy to develop, but easily cured.
• Overcome the illusion of genuine pleasure from the cigarette.
