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 and at one time the trustee of a large children’s charity. Outwardly, Craig was a highly successful and functioning professional man in spite of a ‘two-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 and special occasions (and found that it is amazing how even the smallest of event can suddenly become ‘special’).
All these 'willpower' based attempts to stop drinking failed (exactly as they were destined to do). Slowly he discovered the truth about alcohol addiction and 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.
Craig is known around the world as "The Stop Drinking Expert" and many thousands of people just like you have quit drinking using his method. This updated edition of the best-selling Alcohol Lied to Me is new for 2014.
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.

Alcohol is an attractively packaged poison

STORY (self-help/motivational) - I used to just be a social drinker. Now I look forward to a glass of wine, sometimes two, most days after work. I've gained weight and feel guilty that I'm probably harming my health. I've made efforts to stop drinking during the week at home, but that bottle of wine always finds a way to jump off the shelf and into my shopping cart. If it doesn't, I just steal a couple beers from my hubby's weekend stash. NOT GOOD!!

This book is motivational, but it also has lots of scientific information. You will hear how alcohol is an ADDICTIVE DRUG that would not obtain an FDA approval of safety if it were introduced today. It has become socially acceptable, almost necessary. We have been brainwashed by the alcohol industry into thinking it makes us more relaxed, more confident, more fun, more sexy and that we are SUPPOSED TO DRINK at social occasions. You will hear the words in my headline over and over during this book, and you will hear why ALL drinkers are playing Russian roulette with potential addiction. Bottom line is we all need to see it for what it is and stop drinking.

Mr. Beck lays out a multi-prong attack for stopping consumption of this poison. It involves understanding the harm alcohol does to your body and its addictive properties. He suggests ways to change how you look at alcohol (including listening to a recording on his website which reprograms your subconscious mind). He also suggests the reader purchase a few supplements, which makes perfect sense when you understand why you need them. He suggests a few "new age" techniques which he admits may sound far-fetched to more traditional thinkers (myself included), but I plan to at least give them a try. I want to stop gaining weight, sleep better and stop doing harm to my body with this poison.

PERFORMANCE - The writer is a great motivational speaker and does a good job reading his own work. He has a pleasant British accent.

OVERALL - If you regularly consume alcohol and want to learn why you should stop drinking and how to do it, this book just might be what you're looking for.

If Alcohol Is A Concern Then You Need This Book!

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

I am currently up to my third listen and have picked up even more with each listen. Using a combination of his own story and a generous amount of fact Craig really makes you reconsider your long held opinions of alcohol.

Considering that I have listened to other audiobooks and read other books on alcohol I thought this may just be a refresher. Boy was I wrong! With Craig's wonderful story telling ability this is a great listen for anyone who is considering their options with alcohol.

As someone who has been alcohol free for nearly 6 months at the time of writing it would have been great to have had this book prior to embarking on my journey of sobriety. He has really opened my eyes to what I am truly capable of without alcohol especially in social situations.

I am now extremely keen to check out some of Craig's other works.

I give Alcohol Lied To Me 2 bigs thumbs up!

I wasn't impressed

I thought it was poor compared to other more recent books. I wouldn't recommend it.

Just aimed at selling hypnosis programs

The book was okay in parts and resonated at some points, however the real help you need is once you have stopped drinking not helping you stop. The book offered little practical suggestions on how you ensure you continue not to drink and seemed to be aimed at just driving income for the author by way of you joining an expensive membership and purchasing hypnotic recordings

Left with the feeling that the book could have offered so much more -but didn't

I think this is a scam - see below

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

About half way this book instructs you to open a webpage link to a hypnosis session by the author. The website is a bunch of marketing BS that wants a paid subscription! There is NO links to the media suggested in the book. I am very disappointed
