Présentation de l'éditeur

Allen Carr established himself as the world’s greatest authority on helping people stop smoking, and his internationally best-selling Easy Way to Stop Smoking has been published in over 40 languages and sold more than 10 million copies.

In this classic guide Allen applies his revolutionary method to drinking. With startling insight into why we drink and clear, simple, step-by-step instructions, he shows you the way to escape from the ‘alcohol trap’ in the time it takes to read this book.

His unique method removes the feeling of deprivation and works without using willpower. Allen dispels our illusions about alcohol, removes the psychological dependence and sets you free to enjoy life to the full.

“I would be happy to give a medical endorsement of the method to anyone.” Dr PM Bray MB CH.b., MRCGP

Praise for Allen Carr's Easyway:

“His skill is in removing the psychological dependence” - The Sunday Times.

“A different approach. A stunning success” - The Sun

“I was exhilarated by a new sense of freedom.” - The Independent

En savoir plus sur l'auteur

Allen Carr est devenu expert-comptable en 1958. S'il s'épanouissait dans sa vie professionnelle, la consommation quotidienne d'une centaine de cigarettes le déprimait. En 1983, après l'échec d'innombrables tentatives pour arrêter de fumer par le seul pouvoir de la volonté, il découvrit ce que l'humanité attendait en écrivant La méthode simple pour en finir avec la cigarette (The Easy Way to Stop Smoking), best-seller traduit en plus de trente langues et vendu à plus de treize millions d'exemplaires dans le monde. Dès lors, ne fumant plus, il s'est consacré aux autres fumeurs.
Sa solide notoriété repose sur les résultats spectaculaires de sa méthode, qu'il a appliquée plus spécifiquement à la gent féminine dans son ouvrage La méthode simple pour les femmes qui veulent arrêter de fumer. Il est désormais considéré comme l'expert numéro un dans l'assistance aux fumeurs qui souhaitent arrêter la cigarette. Au début, les fumeurs des quatre coins du monde se retrouvaient dans son centre de Londres ; aujourd'hui, son réseau de centres couvre les cinq continents.
Cinq autres ouvrages fidèles aux principes qui ont fait le succès de sa méthode ont été traduits en français et sont désormais disponibles aux éditions Pocket notamment La méthode simple pour perdre du poids, La méthode simple pour prendre l'avion sans avoir peur et La méthode simple pour avoir du succès.
Allen Carr est décédé le 29 novembre 2006.

Struggling with too much and too often excess booze I have tried everything I could find: bought most of Amazon books on the subject, talked with AA, psychiatrists, took medicines et after each step getting more and more depress and feeling ashamed and useless. Then I read Allen Carr's book, thinking deep inside that it would be another usual book giving your advices, orders, telling you terribles stories in one word very negative. But I really found this time something to rely on. I found myself in those pages and the way I was dealing wrongly with life, stress and booze. This is the ONLY book to buy if you are concern about your drinking and sincerely want to do something about it. This writer is a bit of a magician !!!!....... but still very realistic and straight to the point. Buy it, not tomorrow or next week... buy it NOW and read it ASAP. It will save your life !.... it saved mine and gave me back MY freedom.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Helped me change my life! 28 janvier 2007

Last year, I searched Amazon for a book that might give me some advice/support on ways to help me control my intake of alcohol. I'd been a heavy drinker for nearly 35 years. I had no intent of quitting drinking when I bought the book. I read the reviews and had mixed feelings.

But, I will tell you that if you have any concern about how much you drink, if you have guilts or regrets over what you have done or said while you were drinking, and if you can read Allen's book with an open mind and a desire to improve yourself, I am convinced it will change your life starting the day you finish the book!!!

I'm a tough [...] and people consider me a man's man. But, I will tell you that I cried tears of joy when I finished Allen's book! Don't let yourself be swayed by Gertrude's review of this book. And, I won't tell you the secret of Allen's teaching.

Buy it! It is a tiny price for the value it will bring to your life. Be open minded and sober when you read it. I am a much better man, father, husband, professional... all because of this book. Do yourself and those around you a favor. Give it a read!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 What an amazing little book! 4 avril 2013

I had quit drinking for about 2 weeks with the 'willpower method' for the 100th time and knew that I was on the verge of falling off the wagon again. So I started searching amazon for a new book to help give me some motivation to continue my run. I read some reviews on this book and figured it was worth a read.

I must say, Mr. Carr's approach to controlling (quitting) drinking was unlike anything I had ever heard, and I've read a lot on the subject, including the AA Big Book. It was nice to hear for once that I didn't need to go to 12-step meetings to be cured or check into rehab for 30 days or talk to a shrink about how daddy didn't love me enough.

It was intriguing to hear that I had simply fallen for a trick, fallen into a trap. He did an excellent job of dispelling all the common myths surrounding alcohol and why we feel attracted to it or in need of it. He tackled the problem in a very logical way by exploring what we really benefit from drinking. If you look close enough you will realize that there is no benefit whatsoever.

In other words, he very effectively and systematically removed my desire to drink; something neither AA, nor my doctor, nor my family, nor a judge could do. About halfway through the book, I knew that I wouldn't drink again! It is truly amazing, given my long history of alcohol abuse and failed attempts. At this current writing I'm 5 weeks sober and have not had any cravings for booze, which was a daily battle before coming across this gem.

Like another reviewer said, I feel like the book has hypnotized me in a way. I almost instantly went from waking up every day and praying to have the strength to fight off the temptations to waking up every day and simply knowing that the fight is over and I have won. I still think it's too good to be true, due to my horrible track record, so I continue to re-read certain chapters and the instructions, just to ensure that my resolve and my new perception of the foul tasting poison remain strong.

I highly recommend this book to anyone searching for a fresh perspective on this disease. I haven't gone this long without a drink in over 20 years and the amazing thing is that I no longer feel like I'm making a sacrifice or missing out on anything. Read this book with an open mind and I think you'll come out of it feeling the same way. Truly amazing!

Update - 5/28/13 - I'm still going strong, now 89 days sober. Upon re-reading the entire book, not being surprised or intrigued by the contents anymore, I'm realizing that the author tends to ramble on, when making a point, often taking off on long tangents. This makes the book a bit hard to re-read, but scattered throughout the rambling are golden nuggets of advice and excellent points and arguments that I never considered until reading this book. I'm making good use of my kindle note marker this time around to preserve the valuable information and dismiss the useless stuff, for when I come back to it. Still highly recommended.

Update - 9/12/13 - About 6 and a half months sober now! And I owe the beginning of my journey to this little book. It helped me get in the right frame of mind in the early days, which was essential. No book is going to make you stop drinking, but a book can act as a good guide or counselor to help you see things outside of your own warped perspective. And believe me, every active alcoholic has a warped perspective of things. The longer I'm sober, the more astonishing it is to me how easily I used to rationalize my extremely dysfunctional way of life. If you're tired of the maddening pattern of spending half your time repairing things and the other half sabotaging them, then look beyond your own understanding and buy this book and take the first step to correct your warped perspective. If I can do it, then anyone can!

Before I begin, I just want to say that this is the first review I have done for Amazon despite being a Prime member for 6+ years. I know I know, you may be thinking I am some lazy bum who does not care about his fellow Amazon shopper....OR realize that this book has made such a large impact on my life and want to share it with as many people as possible. My goal is to give a little background about myself, my struggle and the solution. Even if just one person gets something from this then this review will be a success. Now a little about myself...
I am 26, I have a successful job in the construction industry, have a great group of friends and family and my whole world revolves around cars. Talking, wrenching, watching, driving. It is in my blood. This seems irrelavent now but will make more sense later. I went to a great high school, played all the sports, never did drugs or drank in excess. Yes, I went to parties but it was not a every weekend event. Continued on to college and got a two year degree. I was paying for myself so I could not afford the required classes to get my Bachelors degree and in search of a job I ended up getting into construction.
By the time I was 20 I was probably drinking twice a week steady with some of the older guys I worked with. I turned 21 and without realizing it my drinking had shot through the roof. I was going out and buying this or that to try whether it be hard alcohol or microbrews. I did not think much of it since I was just doing what every other 21 year old was doing, right? Around the age of 23 I realized I had a major problem on my hands. I was buying a pint of Jagermeister a night and could slam the entire bottle in one shot. Of course I left out some details in those two years such as I gained about 60 pounds, ruined the relationship with the girl of my dreams whom I dated for 5 years, I lost touch with friends I had known for years, was now socially and personally using drugs (weed, pills, coke) becuase I was trying to reach a "new drunk" since I had such a high tolerance and I lost touch of reality.
But I always made it to work in time, I made new friends, bought bigger clothes and was just telling myself one continuous excuse after another. So I continued to drink like a fish. Anything and everything. I can not tell you how many times I would slam that pint of Jager, and within an hour was driving to the local liquor store for another pint because I started to early (5:00pm) and didnt want to lose my buzz before bedtime. Being blackout drunk was almost a nightly occourance and the hangovers just became the normal for me. But again, I kept it to myself and figured I would deal with the issue later.
I eventually went to an AA meeting and what the people said there really made sense. They had the same issues as I did. But I did not know how to dedicate an hour a day to it, but more importantly, let everyone know that I was an alcoholic. I did not want that label. I tried stopping through willpower a dozen or so times. That would last about two weeks tops before I gave myself another reason to drink. I would google things and tried the Kudzu root and the vitamin deficiency programs, etc. Nothing worked. I knew I had to stop before I killed myself or someone else. I could not live my life like this. I stumbled across "The Easy Way to Control Alcohol" on Amazon, read some reviews and based off them, it almost seemed to good to be true. I ordered it and was nothing but doubtful.
Once I recieved the book I did not open it up for about three weeks. Why, I am not sure, probably becasue I would have rather drink then read. Once I started, you are given very specific instructions, one of which is continue to drink like normal as long as you read the book sober. I would read a dozen or so pages at a time about every three days and I really took my time, did what he said and comprehended what he wrote. The entire time I was nothing but doubtful that this would work however in the back of my head I was jumping for joy hoping it really would be as easy as Carr said. When I got to the last chapter it probably took me a week to finish it. I was just so apprehensive and nervouse for the "final instructions."
I did it, I completed the book but nothing felt different. Did it work? I went to work the next day and on the way home I avoided all the liquor stores. But it felt more like when I try to quit with the willpower method then a permanent fix. I stayed sober that night. The next day I went to work and did the same thing, avoided the liquor store stop on the way home but only because I felt like I had to. I was walking up to my front step of my house when my best friend whom I have grown up with was working on his car and he yelled over. He asked if I wanted to give him a hand putting a part on his car when he gets off work (9pm). Then it all clicked!
Right then, right there, it all made sense. That was my "Eureka!" moment. I was free. No longer a slave to alcohol and my life revolving around it. At that moment I realized I no longer had to make up another excuse or text him the next day saying how I "fell asleep" when in reality would rather get in a drunken coma then hang out with my best friend and work on cars. So many times I had left car shows/events early or blew off working on a car because I wanted to get drunk. At that moment I knew I would never have to make that decision again and it felt incredible.
Everything Carr said fell into place and not only was I going to be sober, I was going to stay sober and it was going to be easy. I am proud to say I am currently six weeks sober, I have not felt this good since I was about 20 and I have zero desire to drink. This includes going to the bar for lunch with my co-workers, bowling in a league once a week, celebrating New Years Eve, my birthday and attending a wedding. It is a feeling I cannot describe to say I have beaten alcohol.
I know my review has been a little longer then you probably wanted to read, and I could still write more but I just wanted to show that I was your typical jock in high school, I was succeessful at whatever I tried and alcohol still dragged me down to its level. Even then I was still a functioning alcoholic but that did not make it ok. I also wanted to establish just how much alcohol I was drinking on a daily basis and was able to stop just like that. This book is your answer if you have a real desire to quit drinking. You need to follow Carr's instructions exactly as he says, take your time reading it, have an open mind and digest what he says. Just becuase you finish it does not mean your magically cured. You may have to re-read it or let it sink in for a few days. It has changed my life and I am forever thankful for it. I cannot wait to update this review and let everyone know how my sobriety is going and the positive changes it has led to. Thank you for reading and if you have any questions do not hesitate to ask.

I've always been a heavy 'casual' drinker and I've tried to cut back using the willpower method before. It definitely does not work and who wants to be miserable for the rest of their lives trying it? I quit after reading this book and even watching my husband have wine or beer in the evenings does not bother me. THANK-YOU ALLEN CARR!!!

What you really enjoy in an alcoholic drink is not the drink itself, but the ending of the irritation of wanting that drink. Non-drinkers enjoy that all the time. &quote;
