SubjectPornography addiction

EasyPeasy Method is a free self-help ebook that aims to help people quit pornography, asserting that with it, readers will "painlessly quit porn immediately, without willpower or any sense of deprivation or sacrifice." It is heavily based on Allen Carr's philosophy in his book, The Easy Way to Stop Smoking.[1]


The main author of EasyPeasy Method, Fraser Patterson,[lower-alpha 1] was a long-time pornography user who quit in 2019. He published a free ebook, titled EasyPeasy Method, intended to lead to the cessation of pornography addiction.[2] The book grew in popularity, receiving high acclaim for its effectiveness in comparison to willpower-reliant methods of quitting.[3]

EasyPeasy Method states that pornography addiction is psychological and therefore this is the most significant factor. The book is divided into 33 chapters, whose purpose is to lead the pornography consumer to, upon completion of reading the book, make the decision to quit.[1]


EasyPeasy Method teaches that pornography consumers do not receive a boost from viewing pornography, and that doing so only relieves the withdrawal symptoms from the previous 'session' of pornography consumption, which in turn creates more withdrawal symptoms once it is finished. In this way the addiction perpetuates itself. It asserts that the "relief" that users feel when consuming, the feeling of being "back to normal", is the feeling experienced by non-consumers of pornography all the time. So that users, when they consume, are really trying to achieve a state that non-users enjoy their whole lives. It further asserts that withdrawal symptoms are actually created by doubt and fear in the mind of the ex-user, and therefore that quitting is not as traumatic as is commonly assumed, if that doubt and fear can be removed.

Another assertion unique to this form is that willpower is not required to quit.

The contention is that the fear of "giving up" is what causes the majority of users to continue their consumption, thereby necessitating the user's perpetuation of the illusion of genuine enjoyment as a moral justification of the inherent absurdity of pornography consumption in the face of its adverse effects on well-being. Instead, users are encouraged to think of the act of quitting, not as giving up, but as "escaping".[1]


EasyPeasy Method steadily rose to well reception. Its author created an audiobook of it, gaining more than 137,000 views.[4] It is highly praised for setting readers free from porn addiction.[2]

EasyPeasy Method takes heavy inspiration from the original method by Allen Carr, and claims a 90% rate of success;[5] with this method, there are a number of other how-to books by Allen Carr on subjects such as losing weight, stopping alcohol consumption, & fear of flying, and along with his close friends, protégés, & co-authors Robin Hayley (Chairman, Allen Carr's Easyway) & John C. Dicey (Global CEO & Senior Allen Carr's Easyway Therapist) wrote books dealing with gambling, debt/junk-spending, sugar addiction, emotional eating, mindfulness, tech/smart phone addiction, caffeine addiction, vaping/JUUL with Online Video Programmes handling smoking, vaping/JUUL, alcohol, cocaine, cannabis, sugar & carb addiction, emotional eating, gambling, caffeine addiction, debt/junk-spending, fear of flying, & mindfulness. In 2020 it was estimated that the method had helped more than 50 million people worldwide.[6][7]
