Says Just One Cigarette Gets Kids Addicted
study released today (10th January 2018) by Queen Mary University of London indicates that two thirds
of people who try just one cigarette become daily smokers.
CEO & Senior Therapist at Allen Carr’s Easyway comments on this
latest research published in The Journal of Nicotine & Tobacco Research :
surprised anyone needed to conduct a study to appreciate that nicotine, one of
the most highly addictive drugs known to mankind, is…so highly addictive.
over 30 years Allen Carr’s Easyway organisation has been saying that just
one cigarette can hook a smoker and one puff of one cigarette can draw a former
smoker back into the addiction.
indicated in the report, educating youngsters against "trying out” smoking (or
e-cigarettes) is essential. Allencarr always said that if you could explain
to an animal, the workings of the trap designed to capture them, the animal
would never be tempted to take the bait. If young people know how the smoking
trap works – they’ll avoid falling for it. In fact the same goes for any
only way of being sure you never get addicted to nicotine is never to let it
into your body.
find it a little strange that in talking about the report, lead researcher from
Queen Mary, Peter Hajek, who has been outspoken in his support for
e-cigarettes, claims that e-cigarettes are less addictive than cigarettes. I’m
not sure the study actually indicates that and there are more and more studies
emerging that indicate that vaping does act as a gateway to smoking for
self-respecting rebellious adolescent, is bound to consider switching to "the
real thing” as a rite of passage. It’s for this reason that it’s essential to
educate youngsters away from nicotine per se. Making e-cigarettes available in
cotton candy, bubblegum, and gummy bear flavours simply serves to have vaping
appear more attractive to kids. That, combined with the normalisation of
smoker-like behaviour makes it almost inevitable that the youngster will experiment
with their first real cigarette.”

most successful stop smoking method. Over 30 years, Allen Carr’s Easyway method
has cured an estimated 30 million people of their addiction worldwide. The
success rate for the method is over 90%, based on the three-month money back
guarantee for those that have attended a clinic session and independent studies

is unprecedented in the field of smoking cessation).
