About Carol


Carol Williard, creator, author, and founder


Carol Williard

Hi!  I’m Carol, and if you want to understand why Choose a Smokefree Life came into existence, you need to know a little about me.

I tried to stop smoking eight times using a variety of approaches before I was finally successful. I even continued smoking while I had pneumonia. Because my behavior was so out of sync with my values, I felt truly defeated and hopeless that I would ever be able to break free. But quite by chance, I found an approach that finally made sense and gave me insight about why all my past attempts at quitting had failed. In fact, I learned that the previous methods had been sabotaging my success!

In one way or another, I have always been a teacher. Not long after I quit smoking, I discovered my passion for helping others succeed – and now I’ve helped thousands. Along the way, I became an addictions counselor by studying at UCLA. In addition to my teaching and counseling experience in the field of addiction, I’ve explored various therapeutic teaching methods.

I created my own uniquely effective program in Los Angeles and have continued developing it into what you now know as Choose a Smokefree Life. I am endorsed by national medical organizations, hospitals, corporations, the recovery community, celebrities, and folks of all ages and from all walks of life. Now I want to help you succeed!
