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.

This method worked for me
My nightly glasses of wine were beginning to cause me health issues, including high blood pressure and elevated liver enzymes. I've tried AA, but the desire for my beloved wine never went away. I had go to at least 4-5 meetings per week in order to keep my willpower strong enough to resist the urge. After 6 months, I walked into a restaurant to meet a well meaning friend for dinner, and she surprised me with a margarita, and boom, I was drinking again.
But after beginning this book, I found that I had no desire to drink at all. This book reprograms the subconscious, and explains why willpower alone does not succeed. I also downloaded the accompanying hypnosis audio and have been doing it 2-3 times per week. After 11 days, my blood pressure dropped from 151/100 to 127/89. I can't wait to take it again in another week.
I also listened to the book entitled The Naked Mind: Control Alcohol by Annie Grace and highly recommend that book as well.

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
