Publisher's Summary

Craig Beck is a well-regarded family man with two children, a nice home and a successful media career. A director of several companies & at one time the trustee of a large children’s charity. Outwardly, Craig was a highly successful & functioning professional man in spite of a ‘2 bottles of wine a night’ drinking habit. For 20 years he struggled to control his drinking, all the time refusing to label himself an alcoholic because he didn't believe he met the stereotypical image that the word portrayed.
He tried countless ways to cut down; attempting ‘dry months’, banning himself from drinking spirits, only drinking at the weekend & special occasions (and found that it is amazing how even the smallest of event can suddenly become ‘special’). All these 'will power' based attempts to stop drinking failed (exactly as they were destined to do). Slowly he discovered the truth about alcohol addiction & one by one all the lies he had previously believed started to fall apart. For the first time he noticed that he genuinely didn’t want to drink anymore. In this book he will lead you though the same amazing process.
Thousands of people just like you have quit drinking using this method and their feedback and advice has gone into creating this extended and updated edition. The Craig Beck stop drinking method is unique...
No need to declare yourself an alcoholic.
A permanent cure, not a lifetime struggle.
No group meetings or expensive rehab.
No humiliation, no pain and 100% no ‘will power’ required.
Treats the source of the problem not the symptoms.

Worth a listen

I would say I am glad I bought this book...as a social drinker who would not classify themselves as an alcoholic. However I can clearly see where drinking has a negative impact on my life and has to go if I want to achieve the goals I actually care about...weight management and other personal goals that require focus and energy.

I thought the author was a bit over the top at times, but his message rang true and there is some good information and common sense stuff you might need to hear, if you are struggling with some issues based around this socially acceptable drug habit.

Has it "cured me" of my desire to drink? Sure...until I go out Sat night. BUT I will listen to it a few times more to help me in truly changing how I look at it, and see it for the poison it really is.

Good luck :)

ROCK SOLID! A MUST READ! WRONG ON AA THOUGH...

Would you listen to Alcohol Lied To Me - Extended Edition again? Why?

Yes. This book is a fundamental read for those who have an alcohol or any addition and want to become free. Craig mentioned in the book that AA fails because it requires the use of will power to stop drinking. Either Craig has never been to an AA meeting, read the Big Book, or ever talked to an AA member. AA uses a spiritual and denounces will power as a path to find and maintain sobriety. As an AA member who seeks knowledge from many sources, I urge Craig to amend this area of his book.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Craig of course.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Learning my ego was the cause of all the detriment in my life.

Worked For Me. However....

What disappointed you about Alcohol Lied To Me - Extended Edition?

...don't be tempted to join the Craig Beck online site that is heavily advertised throughout this audiobook. A lot of the content is limited until you have been subscribed for up to 4 months (to preserve bandwidth apparently). So some content could effectively cost almost £100!! When you are allowed to download content it is all very similar, with identical passages 'cut & pasted' throughout. Actual download files will require some reorganising with filenames, id3 tags, etc - all very unprofessional. The forum is practically dead and I'm not convinced they are all from real subscribers. If you succumb to the adverts in this audiobook and actually join, take out a 1 month offer and then cancel before 28 days and take up the $9.99 VIP offer (which is still double the amount I feel it's actually worth!)

Working for me!!!

Would you consider the audio edition of Alcohol Lied To Me - Extended Edition to be better than the print version?

I haven't read the print version, yet.

Any additional comments?

I listened to this book on my way to night shift on Monday (2.5 hrs to work and the same return), by the time I got home Tuesday morning I was a non drinker. I have no stress from stopping my daily habit and feel great, I just have to pinch myself to confirm this is real. I did use the Alan Carr book a few years ago and quit for a couple of weeks but this book has worked straight away and I honesty cannot imagine going back to the bad old days of drinking. I have listened to the book daily on my commute which probably helps, most people would not have the time for this, but while I am driving its no problem and Craig tells his story in an engaging manner. Highly recommended.

Brilliant! Brilliant! Brilliant! It set me free

What did you like most about Alcohol Lied To Me - Extended Edition?

This book set me free from the clutches of alcohol addiction and dependency. I had struggled with alcohol dependency for about 10 years prior. I had previously tried many different methods and medications (antabuse) without any sustained or prolonged success. Since listening in full to this book and religiously doing the meditations/hypnosis, I can report that it has now been 12 months since my last drink of alcohol.

What other book might you compare Alcohol Lied To Me - Extended Edition to, and why?

Not heard anything quite like it.

What does Craig Beck bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

A tone of voice and approach to the program that I originally found very aggressive. I almost stopped listening to the program because I thought he was too aggressive. However I am so pleased I kept listening. Craig also brings a bit of humor to the program as he points out how ridiculous this drug really is.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No.

Any additional comments?

Thank you Craig Beck. I paid $15 to set myself FREE from this dangerous drug. No more doctors appointments, no more drugs to assist, just the power of what is the truth about alcohol. I am a typical Australian male who really struggled with the role alcohol played in all parts of my life . Alcohol is so cleverly interwoven into our society whether that be at family functions, sporting events, workplace events, birthdays, weddings, engagements, relaxation, holidays etc etc It is accepted and encouraged. It is so difficult to refuse or escape from. Like many I believed that alcohol somehow enhanced these events but it is actually a complete fallacy as Craig so cleverly points out.. For anyone struggling with alcohol, I cannot recommend this program enough. Listen to it from start to finish, do not be tempted to skip ahead at any point.Brilliant program! Thanks again Craig, you are a superstar!

Waited to write a review:)

I listened to the book and didn't really know what to expect. I listened to it a couple of times and had no intention of stopping drinking. I did the hypnotherapy for at least 21 days, probably a bit longer. I can now say that this book has helped me immensely and that I have not had an alcoholic drink in three months. I was drinking at least 3-4 nights per week and was drinking at least 3 bottles of wine before I listened to this book. Three months later and I haven't purchased alcohol or wanted to drink any alcohol at all and it just gets easier and easier. Life is more enjoyable now that I'm not ruled by my drinking habits.
