... someone witty and intelligent tells us how to give up alcohol in a way other than 12 steps, higher powers, guilt and desperation!!! I have been waiting for this for decades, literally. I knew there had to be a way to deal with my functional "alcoholism" other than holding hands with strangers in a church basement. Craig Beck offers a unique approach by speaking to us with humor and respect. He shows us that the real culprit is alcohol itself -- and the culture that celebrates it. He speaks to the drinker as a strong person who unwittingly finds him/herself in a bad situation and wants to get out of it. No need to feel weak or guilty, no matter how many times you have tried to quit and failed. He explains exactly -- and convincingly -- why you should try again. And he offers a simple, logical and personal way to succeed. I gave up my wine before I even finished the book, and am looking forward to listening to the rest of his books. His writing/speaking style is casual, funny, articulate and motivating. Hellfire and damnation are definitely missing from his message. I wish EVERYONE would read this book, whether they want to stop drinking or not. His insights are valuable to all of us.
