Scientifically Proven to be Twice as Effective
Allen Carr’s Easyway seminars have been scientifically proven to be a more effective, drug-free alternative to nicotine patches, nicotine gum, and e-cigarettes.
A fully independent Randomised Control Trial (RCT), conducted on behalf of the Irish Government, has found that it is twice as effective as the techniques currently offered by the Irish Health Service (which include nicotine patches, e-cigarettes and gum). The trial results have been reported in the BMJ’s Tobacco Control Journal on 26 October 2018.
The results of the trial show that Allen Carr’s Easyway quit smoking success rates were consistently superior to Quit.ie, achieving higher quit rates at 1, 3, 6 and 12 months.
These results should give the government the confidence to make Allen Carr’s Easyway to Stop Smoking seminar programme available as an exciting alternative to nicotine patches, nicotine gum, and other publicly funded treatments in New Zealand. Working together, we can now provide a realistic and more cost-effective opportunity to free New Zealanders of smoking – which was the reason that the Irish Government’s Minister for Health pushed so strongly for the study to happen.
"Have my own business, 3 young boys, busy life and always believing I needed to smoke to help control my stress. Did the course recently, went in a pack a day smoker, not overly keen to quit but knew I had too... walked out a happy non smoker."

Professor Luke Clancy, a founder and director general of The Tobacco Free Research Institute Ireland, said that the results mean he can now tell patients to use the Allen Carr method.
‘After this trial, I can now recommend Allen Carr treatment and can recommend it to the government if they ask for advice.
It is believed that this is the first time that a cognitive therapy has been subjected to the rigours of a full RCT.
