Are you addicted to wine o'clock? Has that little relaxing treat become a daily routine? Have you tried to cut down and found you can't?
Craig Beck is a well-regarded family man with two children, a lovely home and a successful media career; a director of several companies, and at one time the trustee of a large children's charity, Craig was a successful and functioning professional man in spite of a 'two bottles of wine a night' drinking habit. For 20 years, he struggled with problem drinking, all the time refusing to label himself an alcoholic because he did not think he met the stereotypical image that the word portrayed.
He tried numerous ways to cut down; attempting 'dry months', banning himself from drinking spirits, only drinking at the weekend and on special occasions (and found that it is astonishing how even the smallest of occasions 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 wine 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 did not want to drink anymore. In this audiobook, he will lead you though the same remarkable process.
The Craig Beck method is unique:

I can't believe I'd never heard of Mr. Beck or his approach before finding this audiobook here. This is a total game changer for me. I'm a high-performing professional woman who had, what seemed like, a "dirty" secret. Since I'm in the healthcare industry, there was no way I was going to talk to my doctor about it. Over the past years, wine had become a must-have each night. I'd go to different stores to pick up a bottle on a daily/near daily basis, so that I didn't get a "reputation." I'm not sure how well that worked... In any case, I haven't craved wine (really) since I finished the book (actually, it was a bit after starting it). I love that I have a whole new way of looking at alcohol - what it is, and what it is NOT. I've followed up with one of the hypnosis recordings and have listened to it each night since. I can't tell you how relieved I am to NOT have to stand in front of strangers and tell everyone in my life about my problem. Without any guilt! I feel absolutely wonderful. I've already shed some weight and I feel confident that I'm on the road to a healthier life than would have been, with a happier marriage and SOOO much more time back. It was Mr. Beck's calculation of the amount of time he lost from his life and loved ones when he was drunk that made me realize that I'm not only adding years to my life, but so many more special moments starting NOW. Highly recommend this.
I tried everything I went from hard liquor to wine thinking less alcohol grade and the natural process of wine could satisfy my drinking problem just to to find out that is even worst.From $150.00 hypnosis sessions to other way of trying and errors this reading worth your attention. The supplements recommend in this book especially the 5htp will help you get thru alcohol issues and problems and I can only add the benefit of the b12 vitamin to aid in such difficult process.Wish you success in trying.
I was a bit ambivalent when I downloaded this. I only did so because of all the great reviews . this book is a game changer! !! I've been listening to audible for some time and this is my first review. I'm taking the time because the author asked me to at the end of the narrative.amd I am so impressed with my change of perspective that I couldn't imagine ignoring a request from someone who has change my life. it's a new day! Thank You!!!!!!!!!
One of the best stop drinking books written. He just got to the point on why drinking is not worth it.
Stop drinking it will eventually kill you. Its a slow ugly process.
"Fantastic and Amazing"
I never thought i could stop just like that. I have done and I feel amazing and positive. My mood is really happy. Giving up a twenty year habit just suddenly stopped. The great thing is I don't even miss the glass (bottle) of wine after work. I don't even think about it. This really is an incredible turn around. It is all pretty simple advice and just looks at the myths behind the so called benefits of drinking. It simply looks at the truth behind the lies. I then followed this book up with the hypnosis of stopping drinking also by Craig Beck. Amazing.
"A Realistic View of Giving Up"
I initially thought this guy would get on my nerves but in the end i really enjoyed the book. There were times when I wondered whether he was trying to persuade me to give up drinking or start taking heroin, but this will all make sense when you listen.
A down to earth, realistic book about the realities of the kinds of problems you will face when giving up alcohol, along with some tools for overcoming them.
A very good read, will be checking out his website next.
To the core snd answers all those fears of saying goodbye to wine...
All the excuses you make, he has made them and speak about them, making you feel not on your own...
