Allen Carr dies of lung cancer

Allen Carr, the man who helped millions of people quit smoking with his self-help books, has died of lung cancer, aged 72.

According to Yahoo,

Mr Carr was diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer in the summer. He was a heavy smoker with a 100-a-day habit before giving up over 20 years ago and making a name for himself helping others do the same. But friends say that the years he spent curing smokers in smoke-filled sessions at his clinics must have contributed to the illness.
