Allen Carr in South Africa

Dr. Charles Nel

Dr. Charles Nel, a South African dentist working in London, was a 40 a day smoker for 18 years and thought he enjoyed every puff. He stopped once for six months using willpower and it was the most miserable six months of his life. He got to the point that a lot of smokers get to, where he thought to himself "I would rather live a short happy life, than a long miserable one." He started smoking again.

After hearing about the London Easyway Clinic he was extremely sceptical. However, after meeting a number of people who had not only stopped smoking, but were happy not to smoke, he attended the clinic. He stopped immediately and permanently after the first session and found it easy and enjoyable. He has been a happy non smoker for more than 18 years.

Charles subsequently successfully applied to become the master franchisee for Allen Carr in South Africa. After completing the training to become a therapist, he opened the Cape Town Easyway Clinic in Claremont in February 1999. He is responsible for developing the Easyway Clinic network, throughout South Africa.

Charles also started Conifer Books which publishes Allen Carr's best selling book "The Easyway to Stop Smoking"
