Publisher's Summary

Are you struggling with alcohol addiction? Have you tried to quit, but you haven’t managed to stop? 

Well, alcohol addiction is a disease and for you to stop drinking alcohol, you have to embrace the fact that you need help. In this book, I will briefly take you through my journey of alcoholism and how it affected my life. Personally, I had befriended the bottle to the extent that I found it difficult to let go. This friend grew into a monster that I couldn’t control any more. I suffered in the hands of alcoholism as it stole away everything that I had worked hard for including my friends and family. In just a few years, I was at the edge. I had given up on life considering the fact that I had tried to quit drinking, but relapsed over and over again. Friends and family had given up on me. I was a worthless being. My self-esteem was negatively affected as I could not see any good thing about my life.

One thing that I later realized is that I only needed to accept that I needed help for me to begin my journey towards recovery. So, I made a bold step and sought for all the professional help I required. This was the beginning of a successful journey to sobriety.

Following the difficult times that I went through, I have written this book to inform and inspire other addicts out there that they can save themselves from alcohol addiction. This book details vital information that will help you comprehend how alcoholism corrupts your mind and robs you of your humanity. What’s more, you will garner a deeper insight into some of the reasons why people find it difficult to quit. 

What you will find inside: 

  • Why you need to make a life-time decision
  • Why is it so hard to quit drinking?
  • Causes of alcohol addiction
  • How to successful quit drinking alcohol: tips and advice
  • Signs to help you realize that you’re an enabler and how to stop
  • Detox vs. rehab; choosing the best recovery path
  • How to avoid alcohol relapse
  • The 30-day no-alcohol challenge
  • And so much more!

This Changed My Life (Relief at Last)

I have check reviews about this being a great book, but I didn't expect for it to actually work (at least not nearly as well as it has).

I think I was in a place with my relationship with alcohol that this book had an incredibly strong impact on me. I'll give the liminal sections a review or listening the book over a few more times as I continue with my sobriety to further instill certainty. Reversing your unconscious emotions and desires towards alcohol is one sure way to help address any cravings or conflicts you have about abstaining. I'm glad that I don't have to try to avoid drinking or have some exhausting internal conflict, as there simply is no longer any desire to drink. Gaining control of my drinking is the greatest gift I could have asked for, and I am in disbelief at how well this book worked for me.

I’ve been sober for a month now

I have been struggling for about 2 years now trying to quit drinking. My research into the AA 12 step program left me knowing that that path was not for me. I didn’t want to live a day at a time with a victim mentality, hoping for help from the man upstairs. I wanted to wrestle this beast to the ground, stomp a mudhole in it, and take back my power and my life. This book taught me to do just that. It was exactly what I needed. I’ve been sober for a month now and I feel like I am in control again. Thank you Sam!

This book can change your life!

This book works! I felt as though I had hit rock bottom in my life. Never sleeping, hating who I had become: a "functional" alcoholic mother of two young kids drinking gin straight from the bottle in my closet every evening. This book has given me my freedom.
If you are looking for help, please listen this book. It has given me back the life I want to lead. It is easy to listen, with a balance of narrative and research.

Very very worthwhile listening

I have listened this book in sections as recommended and thought it was a wonderful book. I listened it to help me understand a problem a family member is having and found it made a huge difference in my own life with regard to alcohol. I cannot explain it, but reading it has changed my life and I did not think I had a problem. I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone.

This just works, and that is amazing

I have tried numerous times during my adult life to quit drinking. This book worked, and that amazes me. I listened this book, and after that I've not had a drink. It has really felt easy, no willpower needed, the book is interesting, well-written and it reverses a lifetime of conditioning and that is the highest praise I can give a book. I have listen it twice now and really want to learn the magic behind the "liminal points" in each of the chapters to apply them to other areas of life, as this is truly a game changer.

Open your mind; it works.

I've had a love/hate relationship with alcohol most of my adult life. I've gone ten years without booze, and then been in periods where it seemed I couldn't stop drinking when I wanted to (not in an evening, but overall). Perhaps my problem has been that I've kept it under control, no one other than my wife knows my struggles, I'm very successful and work (I don't drink, typically, during the week), and have not suffered any real health consequences (that I know of!!). So, quitting has always been a matter of "depriving" myself of something that I thought I enjoyed. Just recently, upon the urging of my wife, I quite again. Fearing the seemingly inevitable relapse to drinking on the weekends, harboring this feeling that I was depriving myself of something and wondering how long I could hang on, I stumbled upon this book. Wow. Truly a godsend. Although intellectually I've known all the stuff the book contains, the way that Sam writes, the structure of the book, the repetitive nature (which is by intent and meant to make the lessons sink in), and the positive guidance completely turned my outlook around. I don't feel deprived, I don't feel a craving. For the first time in a long time, I feel like I no longer feel the need/want to drink and, indeed, can picture the rest of my life without it. I plan to keep listening this book over and over again.

Refreshing, modern, and most importantly positive

This book is a refreshing listening, with a modern and real-world approach to quitting a bad habit in the face of overwhelming pressure from advertising and a world where entertainment is associated with alcohol. What struck me most was the reminder of how much joy life once gave prior to the introduction of beer and wine, which replaced the enjoyment with drinking. I would recommend this over the AA Big Book as a very useful tool without the constant hammer over the head about being a selfish, dishonest, and resentful person. This Naked Mind is positive and empowering. I truly enjoyed listening this book.

Great tool to help quit drinking alcohol

I have been a heavy drinker since college. While drinking alcohol I have managed to have a very successful career and a good family life. Nonetheless I have always felt my heavy alcohol use kept me from doing my best and sometimes caused me to do my worst. It has also added unwanted pounds. I have long wanted to moderate my alcohol use, but the cravings got in the way. This book was referred to me by a loved one who successfully quit drinking after listening it. The book is written very well in a way that successfully weakens a persons subconscious desire to drink by effectively re-educating them on the myths of the value of alcohol and highlighting its health risks. After listening, I knew I was getting the tools I would need to really quit alcohol and since finishing the book I have not had a drink. Moreover I do not want a drink and when the occasional cravings recur I can resist by listening again portions of the book. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to quit drinking alcohol.

Becoming my best

Wow. What an incredible book. I purchased it after I quit drinking a few months ago to reinforce my decision to quit. During this time I did "cheat" a handful on a some weekends. and even stopped listening this book for a month or so. I picked it up again, determined to finish it and become sober once and for all. It was the end of the book that sealed this for me. Even though I am not physically addicted I had to come to the realization that I am mentally addicted to wine and my unconscious thoughts were bringing me right back to the drinking. I created a mantra and have been saying it morning and night to recondition my mind. I truly had a love affair with wine and now I realize I was poisoning my mind and body. Alcohol is a thief; it steals my time, money, creativity, my peace, my sleep, and so much more. I thought of wine as my best friend and now I see it is my enemy that has kept me from becoming my best.

A Complete Tectonic Shift In My Thinking

I won't go into details of my story here. That's personal. Suffice it to say that after many, many years, I was quite worried about my patterns of behavior, wanting to change but unable to do so.

There's something about Sam's book that almost immediately caused a complete shift in my thinking. Even before I was a quarter of the way through the book, I thought, "Man, I can't wait to get started," but I thought I'd finish the book before endeavoring to quit alcohol completely. During that time, having even a beer or a glass of wine was not enjoyable as I observed the obvious effects that I had been ignoring: it didn't actually taste good; I burped a lot; it made me feel wobbly and out of control; my senses were dulled; my thoughts were scattered; I felt lethargic and depressed. And it caused me to ponder and curse my lack of resolve.

Stutters mid sentence frequently

Terrible. Waste of money. Doesn't help, just lists facts. The performance is terrible it continually pauses beiefly mid sentence making it sound like the narrator is having difficulty with the next word. The tone is terrible too. Bass is too high and the accent is offputting sounds like he's singing at times.
Terrible. No help what so ever.

This book has changed my life in a powerful way.

This book has changed my life in a powerful way. I no longer think about alcohol not have any desire to drink. After three-plus months of sobriety, I am listening through it a second time just to catch things I may have missed. I highly recommend it!

This is an amazing and practical book.

This is an amazing and practical book that has changed my life in a profoundly positive way. Not only is it the best book for breaking addiction but also quite possibly the best book for making positive life changes and understanding how your brain works and what holds you back. This is a tremendous self-help book for establishing powerful habits to change your personality to the core and unlock your potential. I would enthusiastically recommend it even to anyone who is not battling addiction, as everyone stands to gain a lot from this book. I've gone through the 30-day plan and am going to do it again no doubt multiple times, not because I give in to addiction (because I won't) but because I want to solidify the lessons learned.

Loved this book and program.

I am using this book along with going to A.A. I have learned so much about myself and my drinking. The action steps at the end of each chapter have been very helpful to the process. I am going along at my own pace, sometimes taking 3-4 days per chapter... I could not do a chapter a day and incorporate the info and action steps into my life

A great book. Highly recommend.

This book and its accompanying pod-casts set me off on the course of sobriety that has literally changed my life. Do not hesitate - if you are looking to bring sobriety into your life - this is fantastic support.

This book worked for me.

This book worked for me. I liked the multi-faceted approach, the privacy of doing this on my own, the endless encouragement, and no need to wear the banner of "recovering alcoholic" for the rest of my life. I don't believe I'll ever go back to drinking and I feel fine.

It will work if you are willing to work!

This is by far the best book/program I have found to help me quit/cut back drinking. I had tried to go 30 days numerous times before trying this approach and didn't do as well. The exercises are very eye-opening and taught me a lot about myself and why I drink. It also helped me find new ways to think about things and has helped me build better habits in life in general, not just where my alcohol consumption was involved.

Can change your life.

This book and its exercises really helped me stop drinking and have kept me off for over 1 year. The reality of what drinking was doing to my life was the key to stop. It still has an effect.

I enjoyed every single lesson.

Most inspiring and encouraging. Regardless of where someone is in their drinking routine, this book contains information not only to assist people with either curbing or eliminating their drinking habits, but it also has amazing lessons and encouraging words to embrace and strengthen who we are as individuals. Cover to cover, I enjoyed every single lesson.

Absolutely the best book! This book will guide you

I am loving this book. Haven't worked all the way through it but am doing the work it calls for, and that I need, and feel it is a great resource. Plus there is the website support that goes with it!
