Twenty-five years ago, Allen Carr found himself tortured by his five-pack-a-day smoking habit. He devised his own method for stopping smoking and, since then, has helped millions of people quit by exploding basic myths about smoking, such as that it relieves stress and boredom, improves concentration or is enjoyable. Carr insists that fear of being without a cigarette really keeps people tied to smoking. Carr's book hammers home the point that smoking is an incredibly stupid and revolting habit that poses extraordinary health risks, and has no upside.
