    "One light bulb moment after another."

    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.

    "Brought back memories of clarity"

    A lot of the information in this book I already knew or completely forgot that I knew it. I've tried AA and other methods with no avail. It reminded me of how amazing I felt before I ever started drinking and made the population of drinkers seem like drones, slaves, zombies or what I like to call "sheeple". I could go on and on but I'll just say I was a 5th a night, black out kinda drunk and this revitalized my mind, soul and memory. I recommend putting in earphones and doing simple chores around the house while listening. I listened to the entire book in two sessions. I'm grateful to Mr. Carr.

    "Why you should read this book."
    Any additional comments?

    Because when you are through the question will change from "Can I really quit drinking for the rest of my life?" to "Why would I ever want to drink again?"

    "Helpful but long"

    I felt the author used too many of his life stories in the book, which made it hard to keep my attention.
    Also I disagree with some of his statements.

    "Subliminal Messaging? Whatever Works!"
    What did you learn from The Easy Way to Control Alcohol that you would use in your daily life?

    The content itself seems unbelievably simple but after listening to it, I have no desire to drink. Was it hypnotism? Subliminal suggestion? It doesn't really matter to me, I am 2 weeks sober without struggle! 21 days in rehab were not as effective as these 8 hours.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't judge it until you give it a good try. I felt no desire to drink after listening to the first half, but completed the whole thing. Some of his ideas seem dated or regionally specific, but it still worked for me.

    "Fantastic- I wish I read it years ago"

    I have struggled with alcohol for a considerable period of time, read widely on the subject and attended more meetings than I care to admit. What makes this book so striking is its ability to break down the mess that glorify alcohol, thus removing the feeling of depravation. Highly recommended!

    "Life changing"

    I didn't have a problem (I thought). I may have had a hangover a couple times a week. Sometimes (3 or 4 times a week), I shared a nice bottle of wine. I never planned to wit. But I have. Easily. Since then, I've been the most joyous and happy since my youth. Thank you, Allen Carr.

    "It worked!"
    What did you like most about The Easy Way to Control Alcohol?

    I was a bit cynical but wanted to quit and I thought I would give this a go. I have been drinking heavily now for 15 years (7-8pints a day easily) and after listening to this audio book I have completely stopped now for 2 weeks.


    What about Richard Mitchley’s performance did you like?

    He understands the issues and unravels them with emotional intelligence and IQ


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This guys talent was to clearly understand and articulate a map through what I did not think was possible and take me out of the maze I was trapped in. Easily the audiobook that will have the biggest impact on my life.


    Any additional comments?

    Thank you Allen only wish I could thank you in person

    "Very effective, although could do with some modernisation re comparisons"

    I never would have believed how effective this book could be.

    You need to stay open minded and bits are a little out of date, but I am completely in control of my drinking now. In fact, I haven't had a drink for over a month (I was a daily drinker) and not had one craving or withdrawal, despite continuing a full social life.

    Good luck to the next reader, I hope Mr C works as well for you x

    "Very interesting"

    I can see how alcoholics stopped drinking after reading this book. People who don't quit haven't really understood the book , understanding the book and its message is something you've never heard before about drinking , be prepared to be shocked as the story twists. I myself have told all my friends I have stopped drinking after reading this , will it last? Only Time will tell .. I believe it will. I'm free. Come into this book as skeptical as you want.

    "Fantastic book!"

    I was highly sceptical about the ability of a book to control my drinking but even though Allen encourages you not to quit alcohol until you've finished the book, I found myself recoiling at drinks very early on into it - much to the bemusement of my friends! I was always the heaviest drinker in the group but now I'm sober and very very happy! Don't delay, start today!
