These clips are from the BBC: Horizon documentary series entitled “We Love Cigarettes”. The advice Allen Carr gives is pretty damn good, it convinced me (a 5 year smoker) to quit cold turkey. It has been a couple months now and I’m still going strong. Update: It has been over one year since my last cigarette and I have never been tempted to look back. I really hope this simple advice has helped someone else.

  3. idontevenknowaname says:

    @leftylethborg that is a good i dead belive me i think of that all the time. i have spent so much money on smokes instead i should be saving it. i don’t make enough money to be saving for a car and smoking at the same time at least 140$ a month goes toward smokes if not more

  4. leftylethborg says:


    think about the future
    do you want to be smoking around your kid’s

    calculate how much money you have wasted smoking
    you will find you have spent over 5 thousand dollars

    stay away from friends and people you know who are smokers
    it’s hard i know but when they light up walk away for a few minutes

    put the money which you have to buy smokes in other places example in a bank or buy other things so your not temped to buy smokes

    this is how i quit hope it works for you

  13. angelbe88 says:

    when I quit years ago I used plastic stir straws and cinnamon sticks. The lollipops and gum made the withdrawl worse because of the sugar. Also quit coffee first. It’s really bad for your health too. Worse than you can imagine. That way you won’t be amped up on caffeine when trying to quit smoking.

    @MegaAwesomeMe1 well, if you can’t convince her of quitting at least try to convince herof smoking habano cigars or pipe, it has little less toxines (it’s still toxic obviously), but don’t try to convince someone who’s not interested on quitting, i have never smoked (not as a habit) but everyone on my family does, and it sucks.

  18. MegaAwesomeMe1 says:

    @rod3067 well i dont smoke i just asked.. i know i wont be craving them unless i smoked i only asked because.. im trying to make my friend quit i lost my friend because she smokes im tryign to show her stuff to help her but she wont watch anything

  19. rod3067 says:

    @MegaAwesomeMe1 mmmh…………..then you´re fucked up….nah, there are some teas (they’re kinda hard to find) but they make your mouth taste like shit (literally) when you smoke, it’s not nice, but it’s effective.

  23. MINIMI95020 says:

    people who “can’t” quit smoking don’t want to quit smoking. Its all about determination, and self control.

  24. PSTRIPPLEE says:

    @sammehf4 Because you no and you have that feeling soon you’re about to be influenced and boom that;s when your smoking life begins

  25. eden2007 says:

    My best friend quit smoking, now he sucks on my lollipop..

  26. sxymelissannt says:

    But i also must say I enjoy being a non-smoker. I enjoyed smoking but being a non-smoker is also pleasureable…there’s a sense of pride & a freedom.. I can breathe much better & smell & taste. I wake up feeling great, like i wana spring out of bed whereas when I smoke I woke up feeling exhausted

  27. sxymelissannt says:

    2 play devils advocate…There mst b something good abt cigs or it wldnt be so hard 2 quit & wldnt b so addicting. Watevrs gud abt it the anti-tobacco ppl will downplay…i quit 3 weeks ago but I’m still craving.. Doesn’t tht mean there mst have been something really good abt it?

  28. RexBer says:

    he is so right, I couldn’t see it when I was in it and I didn’t want to see it when I read his book, but it’s so simple – just by the mere realization of the facts & myths enabled me to see the whole terror I was subjecting myself to.
    Thank you, Allen Carr and may your dream of an avalanche come true!

  29. mrstealthobservation says:

    nicotine is a strong drug why is there no rehab for it?You will have a serious withdrawal.It either quit or die.I quit crack.I told that rotten little rock i hate you.I think i need to say this to nasty rotten cigarettes and overpower them.Before i die and my boys have no daddy.Nor a caring mommy.

  36. MrGoldfangaz49 says:

    the music is a hit! It is apparent that it is all in the mind.

  37. InDarkSolitude says:

    Try VAPING. It is the ONLY way I have quit!!!
    You gradually step down your nicotine levels; but still feel the smoking sensation with a water mixed vapor.
    Search for E-cigarette tank systems on YouTube. Great advice out there……

  38. doctorbasslayer says:

    is it possible to smoke out of your anus?

  39. biffbiff99 says:

    I’ve quit about fifteen times. That means I’ve actually never quit once. Today is the day I try for the 16th time. I’ve found this stuff called diamorphine to replace nicotine. Jesus its good. Highly recoomend it.

  41. mmtaha1000 says:

    I quit 3 month ago .I still have strong bouts of cravings.I agree with every single word he said esp that smoking reduces stress.In contrary my concentration has improved after quitting.Every time i feel terrible i go online and search for useful information and videos.

  42. Hammersmith80 says:

    Smoking does not help you to relax, how can it with so many stimulents and toxins rolled inside a thin piece of paper?

  43. UKnowDatsPoor says:

    Man, I quit for 6 weeks and it’s coming back! The addiction! Fuck my life, this sucks!

    No really , stop smoking cigarettes , its not cool . Try WEED !!! :D

  48. 1967mustanggta says:

    I love to smoke.
    I’d rather smoke than be a cock sucker. But this day in age more and more communities would prefer a cock sucker over a smoker in apublic place. Absolutely amazing.
    I encourage everyone to become a smoke at adult age – better than be a fat pig. Cleaner and safer than living in a city.

  49. JungleListSoldier says:

    Day 4 is the toughest. I tried quitting several times in past and always broke down on the fourth day. I finally got to day 5 this time and the cravings are much smaller. However I am sort of cheating as I am chewing Snus 2 or 3 times a day.
