„Мы научились делать бомбы, которых хватит, чтобы уничтожить множество таких планет, как Земля. Чем мы оправдывали их изобретение? Возможностью положить конец войнам. Значит, войны в Корее, Вьетнаме, Персидском заливе, на Фолклендских островах, в Югославии и так далее — всего лишь фикция, плоды нашего воображения.“

„the only pleasure or crutch that smokers receive when they light up, is trying to get back to the level of peace and tranquillity that non-smokers experience the whole of their lives, and that since each cigarette, far from relieving the withdrawal pangs from nicotine, is actually causing them, even that pleasure or crutch is illusory.“ Allen Carr's The Only Way to Stop Smoking Permanently


„Wouldn’t that be an incredibly stupid thing to do? To say ‘I never want to smoke again’, then spend the rest of your life saying ‘I’d love a cigarette.’ That’s what smokers who use the Willpower Method do. No wonder they feel so miserable. They spend the rest of their lives desperately moping for something that they desperately hope they will never have.“ Allen Carr's Easy Way to Stop Smoking: Be a Happy Non-smoker for the Rest of Your Life

„There are people who can make love standing on a hammock, but it is not the easiest way.“ Allen Carr's Easy Way to Stop Smoking: Be a Happy Non-smoker for the Rest of Your Life

„However, you cannot force smokers to stop, and although all smokers secretly want to, until they are ready to do so a pact just creates additional pressure, which increases their desire to smoke. This turns them into secret smokers, which further increases the feeling of dependency.“ Allen Carr's Easy Way to Stop Smoking: Be a Happy Non-smoker for the Rest of Your Life

„Responsibility becomes stressful only when you don’t feel strong enough to handle it.“ Allen Carr's Easy Way To Stop Smoking

„The moment you stop smoking, everything that goes wrong in your life is blamed on the fact that you’ve stopped smoking. Now when you have a mental block, instead of just getting on with it you start to say, ‘If only I could light up now, it would solve my problem.’ You then start to question your decision to quit smoking.“ Allen Carr's Easy Way to Stop Smoking: Be a Happy Non-smoker for the Rest of Your Life


„The cigarette gets the credit for everything and the blame for nothing.“ The Easyway to Stop Smoking

„Eight hours after putting out a cigarette, you are 97% nicotine-free. After just three days of not smoking, you are 100% nicotine-free.“ The Easyway to Stop Smoking

„The moment you stop smoking, everything that goes wrong in your life is blamed on the fact that you’ve stopped smoking.“ The Easyway to Stop Smoking

„The main reason that smokers find it difficult to quit is that they believe that they are giving up a genuine pleasure or crutch. It is absolutely essential to understand that there is nothing to ‘give up’.“ The Easyway to Stop Smoking


„Smokers do not smoke because they enjoy it. They do it because they are miserable without it.“ Allen Carr's Easy Way To Stop Smoking

„Quite simply, the key to being a happy non-smoker is to remove the desire to smoke. With no desire to smoke, it takes no Willpower not to do so.“ The Easyway to Stop Smoking

„We think of stopping smoking as something that is very difficult to do. What do we need when we have something difficult to do? We need our little friend. So stopping smoking appears to be a double blow. Not only do we have a difficult task to perform, which is hard enough, but the crutch on which we normally rely on such occasions is no longer available.“ Allen Carr's Easy Way To Stop Smoking

„I would like you to pause for a moment, and to record your own feelings about smoking: what you think it does for you, why you smoke and why you want to“ Allen Carr's Easy Way for Women to Stop Smoking
