Allen Carr's Easyway to Stop Smoking method offers the most successful documented method of stopping smoking on the planet.

We don't use lasers, patches, gum or other nicotine containing products. There are no shock tactics, no gimmicks, tricks or false props. We don't even talk about the health scares. Most clients attend just one 5 hour small group session and become happy non-smokers immediately and permanently. However we do offer free booster sessions for three months after attending for the minority who need them. Easyway has a proven success rate in excess of 90%, based on claims made under our unique 3 month money back guarantee. There is nothing to lose, and everything to gain.
