Jack Canfield, the number-one New York Times best-selling author of the Chicken Soup for the Soul® franchise and coauthor of The Success Principles, and Dave Andrews, a recovery expert, join forces to present a revolutionary program to help you cut back or quit drinking entirely - in the privacy of your own home.
Alcohol kills one person every 10 seconds worldwide, according to the World Health Organization. Thankfully, now, for anyone who feels that alcohol has become a problem - and for the 23.5 million Americans living in recovery and looking to be reinspired - this new program introduces a groundbreaking model for sobriety that you can achieve in your own home.
The 30-Day Sobriety Solution grew out of Jack Canfield's decades-long work in self-esteem and success training. Its principles were carefully developed into a program by Dave Andrews and tested by thousands whose amazing stories of recovery are shared throughout the book. Organized into five phases that span 30-day periods, this book guides you through each day with practical exercises that, over time, allow you to more easily make positive choices again and again. "The Sobriety System" is an empowerment program that moves systematically from beliefs (including limiting ones) to feelings and emotions to concrete actions and behaviors that promote better outcomes.
Integrating neuroscience, cognitive therapy, proven tools, and teachings, The 30-Day Sobriety Solution is a clear, practical daily program that will help you achieve your goals - whether that's getting sober or just cutting back - and create positive, permanent change in your life.

I love the way that it's broken into individual days and each day has different action steps and exercises to do. There is also a companion website which was another great tool.
I've tried for a few years to get my drinking under control. This book has been the catalyst to make it happen.
When it comes to problem drinking each of us needs their own recipe for success. This book was a key ingredient for me. I listened everyday and worked the solutions when time allowed. Or should I say, I let the solutions work me?! This book helped me understand the WHY of my drinking and give me the positive HOW of living sober. The companion website is loaded with helpful videos, tips, links and a forum. There were a few things that wasn't a fit for me but I gained so much more.
As part of my recipe I also listened to Kevin O"Hara's Alcohol Mastery podcasts daily. Firstly, I'm not affiliated or being paid by either of these. They were both part of my personal recipe along with exercise, diet, sleep learning/meditation and over the counter supplements. Yes that's a lot of ingredients but they each played an important role in helping me to clear my body and mind from the effects of the poison. Becoming a problem drinker wasn't the result of just one day or one thing for me. It took a lot of days and decisions to get there so I took a few to get back.
If you've tried everything with no success please don't give up. Your recipe is out there or it may even be right here in this book.
I had fallen into a habit that was destructive. Drinking every night, stuck in a revolving door. This book helped me see what I was doing, how I had to readjust my thinking, and encouraged me to keep going. It's full of truth, hope, wisdom, and encouragement. I loved it. I no longer drink every night. I occasionally have a glass or two of wine, at a party or event. But never alone, and it doesn't have any power over me. It wasn't an overnight change! You have to follow through. I'm grateful, and highly recommend this audio book. I've listened to it again and again to keep the things I've learned fresh and want to offer encouragement to anyone who feels stuck like I did!! Just listen, start today, and finish the entire book!
The book title is used over and over again and it keep telling you well the program works. Well intentioned but misses the mark. It's a giant commercial for itself.
Yes, it's a well laid out program with just enough content each day to keep you busy and SOBER!
The daily action steps.
No, it wouldn't be effective
I drank alcohol daily for over 40 years. I was never able to quit for more than a few days in a row. I tried other methods but none of them worked. Most recently, I was drinking at least a pint a day plus a beer or two. If you really want to "quit" drinking, then I highly recommend this audiobook. It's over 60 days since my last drink and I hardly even think about it now. If I do, the thought quickly goes away. During this time I went on vacation in the Florida Keys with my wife and didn't have any alcohol, even though she did have an occasional glass of wine. I also celebrated my birthday without having any alcohol, the first time since I turned 18 years old. This method works and there's no need to go to group meetings!
If you think (or you know) you are drinking too much or too often, consider this book. It is a whole program designed to help you determine what to do about it. You can do the work in private. They do not assume you can never drink again. It gave me priceless insights and valuable tools to address my situation.

I bought this book on a whim and read it partially once and then a second time, bookmarked like crazy and now have finished it. I'm so happy I did! I'll listen to it a third time, I know. I've also been recommending it to friends, even friends who don't drink much because finding the right solution is helpful and life changing. It's like a little gift each day for 30 days. This book changed the way I think. I will only keep growing with this foundation. if you're even thinking about it, get it.
I have no idea who this will help. They say it has helped a lot of people so someone must be helped. I just am at a loss as to who is helped by this.
all of it
This is the same old stuff packaged as if it were new and different. I was looking for new science and insights into addiction but I get the same old, "stick with the program and it will work for you promise". They ask you to commit 100% to the program, (whatever that means) then they tell you not to read ahead. In other words commit to a program that you know nothing about.
