Publisher's Summary

Allen Carr’s Easyway has helped over 50 million people to date and counting! His revolutionary approach to the problem of addiction allows addicts to take back control of their lives.

Here in this brand-new audiobook the renowned Easyway method is applied to the subject of gambling.

Most gamblers are convinced that it’s almost impossible to stop gambling and free themselves from debt; they also feel unable to solve the widespread problems gambling causes. The wonderful news is that this audiobook shows you how to stop immediately, painlessly and permanently.

Ideal for listening to in the car or whilst traveling, this audiobook understands gamblers and how they think and, without being judgemental or patronising, takes them step-by-step through the process of how to free themselves of the gambling addiction.

It demonstrates how gamblers fall into the trap of gambling, the psychology behind being addicted to risk and how to quit gambling once and for all.

STOP AND LOOK! READ MY REVIEW!

What made the experience of listening to The Easy Way to Stop Gambling the most enjoyable?

This book gave me everything I have ever wanted from therapy,
self help, and Gambler's Anonymous but never got.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Easy Way to Stop Gambling?

Allen Carr asks only that you have an open mind. You have tried it your way for years: Withdrawal method, help lines, quitting for awhile; and they all haven't worked. The least you could do is hear him out.

Which character – as performed by Richard Mitchley – was your favorite?

N/A

What insight do you think you’ll apply from The Easy Way to Stop Gambling?

The answer isn't one "eureka" moment. Everything makes sense when you put it all together.

Any additional comments?

I think this is the second review I have ever written in my life.

I am 37 years old. I can honestly say I can remember about 60 days in my life since I was 6 years old where I haven't gambled. Rolling dice on the playground, betting my lunch, ponies, sports, casinos, you get it. One month ago I hit rock bottom and asked my friend who was a lifelong smoker (which is how Allen Carr got famous) if there was anything he could recommend that would help my situation. I was throwing a lifeline for help and he emailed me the link to this book. Desperate and at my rawest I started reading.

I am (was) the LAST guy who would believe that a book could change your life, but I can honestly say that The Easy Way To Stop Gambling could seriously knock therapists out if a job when it comes to this issue. I'm not joking one bit. The book works. Carr (a 100+ cigarette a day man) removes the illusion, fear, and denial that one has when it comes to your addiction by implementing his Easy Way method. I have been gambling for over 30 years. My frame of mind has shifted like you wouldn't believe. I am a non gambler thanks to Allen Carr. Please believe me: This book has changed my life without withdrawal, craving, or desire. I would buy this book for you if I could. Honestly, you have absolutely nothing to lose by reading this and I PROMISE YOU, IT WILL MAKE SENSE WHEN YOU ARE DONE! THIS MAN HAS THE #1 QUITTING SMOKING BOOK IN THE WORLD, ALL BY WORD OF MOUTH. HIS METHOD WORKS!

Thanks to Allen Carr, I am truly looking forward to the second half of my life as a non gambler, free from the addiction that has plagued me for 30+ years. YOU HAVE TO TRY THIS BOOK. I PROMISE YOU IT WILL MAKE SENSE!!!

LIFE CHANGING

For the first time I feel I've found something to kick my gambling addiction. What he says makes complete sense and he breaks it down so that you GET IT. I've tried other forms of "rehab" including the willpower method he speaks of and none of them worked.

I believe GOD led me to this book because I was at my wits end on how to overcome this addiction.

This book is a MUST read for anyone looking for the final method to quit gambling for good.

I'm also going to buy the physical book to keep on hand so I can always refer back to the principles for other areas in my life.

It was time to quit

I really enjoyed the Audio Version. I am not much of a book reader. This was very informative and described me and my battle with gambling to a T. I am very happy with the information in the book. I feel that the Instructions herein are easy to follow and WILL help me stay a Non Gambler! Wish I would’ve found this book years ago! Cheers to new beginnings

Read the book, it works

I like to read, I liked.. key word.. liked.. to gamble, but wanted to stop. I’ve tried little things to stop but realize they didn’t work. I just passed it off as my chink in the armour or by bad habit, everyone has one. The further along I got in the book, I realized it was working. The book. By the end, I was confident that I had lost the desire to stop gambling. I’d rate this 10/10 but that doesn’t do justice. This book will and I’m sure has saved some peoples lives.

A short cut of some therapies rewrapped.

I thought this book was boring. I do not think that problem gambling is the same as any other addiction.

Not specific to gambling, not for me

This didn't help. Discusses giving up smoking/alcohol. Not sure the author ever gambled at all and therefore doesn't understand the addiction.

Best book to stop gambling ever

Well iv been gambling since I was 12 and am now 30. Haven't went more then a week without gambling and when I did I wanted to gamble the whole time. After listening to this the book 3 times over I haven't gambled for 2 months and don't miss it at all. I'm totally cured and I can control my my money and plan out things. This book was the best thing iv ever found to stop. Iv tried to stop before always failing within a week. But this book has finally done it. Thank you so much Allen carr

Simplistic and patronizing, some useful stuff.

The patronizing part is assuming all gamblers are in denial, whereas I think many know they have an addiction they can't control. Compares gambling to all other addictions and pretty much says they are all the same. However, gambling does produce dopamine and this gets you addicted to that excitement, win or lose. His main message is that you don't ever enjoy gambling and you only do it to escape withdrawal. However, he ignores the excitement that comes early in gambling as if it doesn't exist. May be useful for some people in denial or think they enjoy gambling. Main message is gambling overall is not pleasant or supportive (a crutch in his words), which I agree with, but it takes an awful long listen to just have this message repeated. I'm thinking he's just applied smoking template to gambling and I dont think they are quite the same.

Listened to the whole book in one day

I had never heard of Allen Carr until I searched the internet for help to quit gambling. I read the book reviews and decided to purchase it straight away and listened to the whole book over the last 24 hours. It resonated with me so much. I have made the decision to immediately become a non-gambler and feel a huge sense of relief.
