How Allen Carr’s Method Works
Allen Carr's method is different.
There are no scare tactics, no horrible pictures, no substitutes, pills, lasers or gimmicks. It’s not hypnosis, mind over matter or positive thinking and we won’t bang on about why you shouldn’t do it (which you already know).
Instead we’ll focus on why you continue to smoke, vape or drink despite knowing the obvious disadvantages.
Allen Carr’s method will question and challenge what you think you know or believe about it. We’ll explode the myths that keep you hooked and by changing the way you think about it, will remove your desire so that you’ll have no reason to do it…ever again.
Step 1 - Understanding the issue - Habit or addiction?
A habit is a repeated behaviour that you choose to do... but are you really doing it out of choice? If you genuinely had a choice, you’d choose not to do it and wouldn’t be reading this. With addiction the drug controls you which is the complete opposite of choice. All addicts – and yes, it is addiction – are aware of the negatives of consuming. The health risks, the money, the stigma, the effect on your family, the slavery etc.
But most addicts believe there’s some benefit or pleasure in return and that stopping means making a sacrifice or ‘giving up’.
Step 2 - Change your thinking
In reality there is nothing to give up, but most addicts believe there is some benefit or pleasure which feels like a mental battle going on in your head:
“It’s killing me…but it relaxes me”
“It’s expensive…but it gives me a break”
“It’s consuming me…but I enjoy it”
How do you feel when you think about quitting? Do you feel happy and excited? Or does it make you feel anxious, nervous or even scared? For most users it’s the latter and of course when you feel this way, you reach for the drug in the belief that it’s going to help you when in actual fact, it’s the cause of your anxiety. And so the cycle of addiction continues.
The truth is, it’s a tug of war of fear:
How can I enjoy life or cope with stress without smoking/vaping/alcohol etc?
You know you shouldn’t do it but you still want to and this is what we call the willpower approach; otherwise known as not being allowed to do something that you want to do.
It’s unpleasant, it’s miserable, it’s difficult and it usually ends in failure. Just the thought of giving up our crutch or pleasure makes us block out the negatives, feel anxious and decide that we’re not quite ready yet.
At some point in your life you've probably tried to cut down or control your intake but this just makes it seem even more precious and the problem becomes consuming. It’s not so much that we want it in our lives, but that we can’t imagine life without it. Sound familiar?
Step 3 - Remove the fear of quitting
You may not realise that 99% of your problem is mental and just 1% is physical. If it was purely physical you’d wake up in the night in pain from withdrawal. 1% is your physical addiction to the drug; 99% is your psychological addiction to the belief that it helps you through life or that you enjoy it. By changing how you think about it and realising there are no benefits whatsoever, we’ll break the addiction by removing your psychological dependency. If you have no desire to do something, it requires no willpower not to do it and the whole process becomes easy and enjoyable.
It is fear that keeps the addict trapped. Fear of the negatives of using, fear of loss, fear of giving up and fear of life never being the same again. Once you understand how the addiction trap works, you'll have no desire to smoke, vape or drink alcohol and at the same time your fear of quitting will be removed.
Step 4 - Find your freedom
After using Allen Carr's Easyway method you will enjoy a feeling of freedom right from the start.
