Today Allen Carr who is a best selling author of quitting smoking books, has sadly passed away.
He died of inoperable lung cancer that is said could be attributed to his long term smoking habits. He stopped smoking 23 years ago when he kicked his 100 a day habit. If he had not have stopped it is very doubtful that he would have reached the ripe old age of 72.
I bought the Allen Carr book after I had stopped smoking 5 months ago, just to have it as a back up and to find out how he encouraged thousands of people to quit. It is an excellent book and will always be to hand.
