Quitting destructive drinking is the easy part - staying quit is the hard part. What do you do tonight, tomorrow, next weekend, when you go on vacation, for the rest of your life?
Okay, I Quit. Now What? is filled with practical strategies and concepts to make the most out of living sober. Many people expect too much out of life just because they quit drinking. This is an honest and raw view of life after liquor. Living sober can be the greatest thing you ever do - but you must be an active participant in your own Re-Invention to get the most out of sobriety.
This thought provoking audiobook will get you thinking and planning your new sober lifestyle. Personal responsibility and pride are the foundation of the principles.
This is not a 12-step audiobook or religious based. It is nontraditional and sometimes controversial. Adult language and situations are used in this audiobook. Not for the timid or bashful. It is written for those of us who want to control our destructive drinking and live a fully engaged, normal life.

There are surprisingly few audio books available that deal exclusively with the topic of quitting alcohol. However, Mark Tuschel has written and narrated his views and experience on this sensitive subject in a potent way and effective way.
Refreshingly, he doesn't hold back and tells us exactly what he thinks about the challenges within oneself and, just as importantly, the social challenges with giving up drinking. Since alcohol is so pervasive in our society, the voices for abstinence are few. Tuschel's high volume narration of his book tries to make up for this and will help anyone who is in the process of taking a personal stand against this destructive drug.
He unashamedly criticizes twelve step programs and the idea that alcoholism is a disease in that both of these concepts tend to absolve one of personal responsibility. His narrative is directed at Joe Six Packs, without any psychobabble or New Age platitudes. He addresses the challenges of dealing with lost friendships, relationships and guilt over past drunken behavior that often arise when one gives up booze. He fully admits that life may not be as "exciting" living sober, but it can be happier and more meaningful.
I highly recommend this refreshingly direct and powerful approach to this topic and applaud Tuschel for his courage in sharing his personal experiences and views.
This is absolutely one of the best things I have ever heard on this subject. He is funny, smart and a joy to listen to. This has been better than any self help book I have ever encountered. Thank you Mark!
