No I would not. this book seems to repeat several things found in the "Big book"
There is better sources to help with alcohol addiction and withdrawal. look into Craig Beck or David Norman. They helped me.
it was too repetitive and the whole book makes the assumption that you have never analyzed your drinking
The author harps on how drinking tastes bad and we trick ourselves into acquiring the taste. He acts like this is some huge revelation. Anyone struggling to quit drinking knows it is bad for you. It does a good job of showing that there are no real benefits. I think this approach works better for smoking.
Also, there really isn't much science to this book. He says some things that are flat out incorrect. Most people reading this book are probably more borderline alcoholics, but I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone who has really struggled with serious addiction. If you are a social drinker who maybe has gone too far ... this book might help.
It's not the chemical itself that addicts you its the belief that it gives you genuine pleasure that does! any false belief can be dispelled with the right information and this book has just that.
The book teaches to you look at alcohol as a poison as opposed to anything positive. It is a poison so it's not really in dispute. I liked the examples of when we first tried alcohol - you hated it, it was rancid, you wanted nothing to do with it. But for whatever reason we forced ourselves to drink it and viewed it in a positive light. As a result your body got used to it and you feel deeper into the trap.
Personally the book caused me to change the way I think about alcohol and as a result I have cut out about 90% of my alcohol consumption. I will still have a drink on social occasions if I want to but it's not anything I think about. I didn't read the book to be abstinent but I could easily be and not really care about it at this point. Great book.
This book is written for alcoholics which I am not but there's useful information nevertheless for those like me who are thinking of quitting to help in weight loss efforts
thank you for taking the time to promote an opportunity for people from all walks of life to understand the metal trap alcohol consumption creates and also the opportunity to open mindedly evade the schizophrenia of a perpetuating cycle
