Craig Beck is a well-regarded family man with two children, a nice home, and a successful media career; a director of several companies and at one time the trustee of a large children’s charity. Outwardly, Craig was a highly successful and functioning professional man in spite of a ‘two-bottles-of-wine-a-night" drinking habit.
For 20 years he struggled to control his drinking, all the time refusing to label himself an alcoholic because he didn't believe he met the stereotypical image that the word portrayed. He tried countless ways to cut down; attempting ‘dry months’, banning himself from drinking spirits, only drinking at the weekend and special occasions (and found that it is amazing how even the smallest of event can suddenly become ‘special’).
All these 'willpower' based attempts to stop drinking failed (exactly as they were destined to do). Slowly he discovered the truth about alcohol addiction and one by one all the lies he had previously believed started to fall apart. For the first time he noticed that he genuinely didn’t want to drink anymore. In this book he will lead you though the same amazing process.
Craig is known around the world as "The Stop Drinking Expert" and many thousands of people just like you have quit drinking using his method. This updated edition of the best-selling Alcohol Lied to Me is new for 2014.
No need to declare yourself an alcoholic. A permanent cure, not a lifetime struggle. No group meetings or expensive rehab. No humiliation, no pain, and 100% no ‘will power’ required. Treats the source of the problem not the symptoms.
STORY (self-help/motivational) - I used to just be a social drinker. Now I look forward to a glass of wine, sometimes two, most days after work. I've gained weight and feel guilty that I'm probably harming my health. I've made efforts to stop drinking during the week at home, but that bottle of wine always finds a way to jump off the shelf and into my shopping cart. If it doesn't, I just steal a couple beers from my hubby's weekend stash. NOT GOOD!!
This book is motivational, but it also has lots of scientific information. You will hear how alcohol is an ADDICTIVE DRUG that would not obtain an FDA approval of safety if it were introduced today. It has become socially acceptable, almost necessary. We have been brainwashed by the alcohol industry into thinking it makes us more relaxed, more confident, more fun, more sexy and that we are SUPPOSED TO DRINK at social occasions. You will hear the words in my headline over and over during this book, and you will hear why ALL drinkers are playing Russian roulette with potential addiction. Bottom line is we all need to see it for what it is and stop drinking.
Mr. Beck lays out a multi-prong attack for stopping consumption of this poison. It involves understanding the harm alcohol does to your body and its addictive properties. He suggests ways to change how you look at alcohol (including listening to a recording on his website which reprograms your subconscious mind). He also suggests the reader purchase a few supplements, which makes perfect sense when you understand why you need them. He suggests a few "new age" techniques which he admits may sound far-fetched to more traditional thinkers (myself included), but I plan to at least give them a try. I want to stop gaining weight, sleep better and stop doing harm to my body with this poison.
PERFORMANCE - The writer is a great motivational speaker and does a good job reading his own work. He has a pleasant British accent.
OVERALL - If you regularly consume alcohol and want to learn why you should stop drinking and how to do it, this book just might be what you're looking for.

Would you listen to Alcohol Lied to Me - New Edition again? Why?
I am currently up to my third listen and have picked up even more with each listen. Using a combination of his own story and a generous amount of fact Craig really makes you reconsider your long held opinions of alcohol.<br/><br/>Considering that I have listened to other audiobooks and read other books on alcohol I thought this may just be a refresher. Boy was I wrong! With Craig's wonderful story telling ability this is a great listen for anyone who is considering their options with alcohol. <br/><br/>As someone who has been alcohol free for nearly 6 months at the time of writing it would have been great to have had this book prior to embarking on my journey of sobriety. He has really opened my eyes to what I am truly capable of without alcohol especially in social situations. <br/><br/>I am now extremely keen to check out some of Craig's other works. <br/><br/>I give Alcohol Lied To Me 2 bigs thumbs up!<br/><br/>

I enjoyed how he exposed the alcohol industry and their marketing ploys. He reminded me beer is not an enjoyable taste and it is clever marketing that makes it seem otherwise.

When you look at things differently the things you look at change. This book is ideal in helping you see alcohol different than you ever have before. It's not offensive or annoying and leaves you excited to start a new chapter in your life. Narrator does a fantastic job.

...because I was afraid to jinx myself. But it's time. 5 months ago I read Craig's book Alcohol Lied to Me, and I have not had a drink since. And the best part? After listening to Craig I have had little-to-no DESIRE to drink. Now, that's not to say I haven't had the odd craving here and there - but if you take Craig's advice to heart you'll find your cravings are completely manageable, and you have nothing to fear. If you have a vague sense that the drinking life isn't working for you anymore, I urge you to pick up Craig's book!
I can't say thank you enough for this book from Craig Beck. Struggled for 17 yrs with drinking and now I have freedom once again after only 2 short months! Craig helps you understand the hold this drug has on you and what needs to be done to get your life back again. I am thankful to Craig's book and the stop drinking expert program, without it I would be SALT..same as last time! I have already passed this book on to a friend and they are also getting positive results! Teetotalers in Michigan
This book has been life changing for me. Craig has such a tender voice and the book is written in such a beautiful and gentle way. Highly recommend to anyone searching for the way to be free from the obsession with alcohol. Thank you with all my heart Craig!!
Having problems with alcohol since the age of 13 (46 yrs now) and as a self proclaimed alcoholic this book was a serious eye opener. I was very sceptical but pleasantly suprised at the very different approach from what I have had the last 20+ yrs. I could relate and accept the common sense points made about it being a PPP (perfectly packaged poision) and the reality of it. It's made me feel differently about it than I ever have. I don't want to hurt myself do I? How important is it really? My partner and I listened to this together and also became VIP members in hopes of making sobriety a permanent positive change in our lives.
Would you consider the audio edition of Alcohol Lied to Me - New Edition to be better than the print version?
I think the audible gives the correct emphasis on the points Craig is making. He's obviously a gifted speaker and his talents really help drive home his beliefs.
Who was your favorite character and why?
ME! Because almost every anecdote describes the lies and frustration I've lived with.
Which character – as performed by Craig Beck – was your favorite?
So much of the story was his own personal journey, so as such it really is an autobiography.
What did you learn from Alcohol Lied to Me - New Edition that you would use in your daily life?
That's what's so great. The basic principle that there is no good reason or need to ingest alcohol. It's been ingrained in our belief systems since we were children and its a tremendous money making industry. I will not be influenced by the drug pushers of alcohol any longer.
Any additional comments?
Craig, thanks for creating such a great program.<br/>Everything you present resonates with me.<br/>I stopped drinking for 7+ weeks and wanted to try drinking in moderation.<br/>Not good. Felt sh..tty and guilty about not advising my wife I resumed my test to see if I could drink and she caught me in a lie. I really felt like a failure.<br/> <br/>You’ve given me a simple, logical explanation to why drinking has become such a problem this last couple years.<br/>I’ve dealt with back pain that got worse and worse. Found this great “Band-Aid” in using Opioids. And, of course, alcohol needed to be part of the treatment as it took the edge off!<br/>What a downward spiral that led to! I was a mess and it became evident to others.<br/>So, I got medical counseling, quit the drugs cold turkey and have been getting new orthopedic treatments to physically heal my back.<br/>I have needed Tramadol in the interim. But the ‘kick’ happens, so, naturally, I assumed my old friend, alcohol would help!<br/>But the alcohol, which took the edge off temporarily only contributed to my screwed up thinking.<br/> <br/>I did not understand what was happening until I got your book.<br/>I realize I’ve been a contributor to the great alcohol conspiracy most of my life and its really taken its toll.<br/>Not so much financially, but had all the symptoms you describe and yes, I wasted hundreds-- or thousands- of hours and have risked losing the respect of my sons.<br/>Planning my day around where and when I could drink, vacations that would allow me to indulge and embarrassing myself at times because I thought I was so funny and smart. What an ass!<br/>Thank God I found your program. I get it. On the day I started the book, I embraced your approach and now am able I look at alcohol in a new light.<br/> <br/>With dedication to my new understanding, I’m convinced I can quit. Not like a smoker who stops smoking but with one cigarette is soon back chain smoking, but a smoker (like I was in my teens) who finds the habit was bad news-- and quit! I could smoke a cigarette (but have no desire) and would never want another.<br/>I believe your plan teaches the same thing. Stopping drinking is not going to work. Realizing its disgusting and destructive that quitting is the real solution. This will become the new normal for me. Others may discover it also, I hope. I believe I will be someone who, if literally forced to drink some alcohol, I would be nauseated and have no desire to go back to it. That’s what quitting is.<br/> <br/>I’m excited and look forward to being off all drugs, especially alcohol.<br/>You’re right, I can’t preach about it, only share it with others who want help and can relate to some close friends who have been able to quit.<br/>Thanks for your direct approach, your eloquent delivery and the clarity your observations deliver.<br/> <br/>I was a frequent public speaker and now feel there is going to be an opportunity to get back on the podium again.<br/><br/>Warm Regards, <br/>John V<br/> <br/>
My nightly glasses of wine were beginning to cause me health issues, including high blood pressure and elevated liver enzymes. I've tried AA, but the desire for my beloved wine never went away. I had go to at least 4-5 meetings per week in order to keep my willpower strong enough to resist the urge. After 6 months, I walked into a restaurant to meet a well meaning friend for dinner, and she surprised me with a margarita, and boom, I was drinking again.
But after beginning this book, I found that I had no desire to drink at all. This book reprograms the subconscious, and explains why willpower alone does not succeed. I also downloaded the accompanying hypnosis audio and have been doing it 2-3 times per week. After 11 days, my blood pressure dropped from 151/100 to 127/89. I can't wait to take it again in another week.
I also listened to the book entitled The Naked Mind: Control Alcohol by Annie Grace and highly recommend that book as well.
I thought it was poor compared to other more recent books. I wouldn't recommend it.
The book was okay in parts and resonated at some points, however the real help you need is once you have stopped drinking not helping you stop. The book offered little practical suggestions on how you ensure you continue not to drink and seemed to be aimed at just driving income for the author by way of you joining an expensive membership and purchasing hypnotic recordings
Left with the feeling that the book could have offered so much more -but didn't
Really opened my eyes! I for one will not be touching that poison anymore! I highly recommend it to anyone if they feel alcohol is in there life.
listened in 1 sitting
saw a lot of paralells and gave me a lot of hope
very well told and compulsively witty
I did like this book and was easier then most self help books to listen too. I particularly liked the advice on health supplements to take. however parts of the book were incredibly similar to Allen Carrs book on alcohol.
As a 'Psychic Addiction' specialist (Be Psychic Free), I work with many people who suffer from anxiety about the future. Most of them drink in order to 'escape', albeit temporarily, from their problems and anxiety. Alcohol, of course, does not solve the anxiety issues, it is often the cause. This book came to me quite by chance, I am so glad it did, because it is going to be the first thing I recommend my clients to read. As a writer, how strange that I should be writing a chapter on the importance of self-care and looking after yourself physically, only to have this book appear. This should be recommended reading for all addiction specialists, life coaches, counsellors and therapists. An excellent resource.

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?
About half way this book instructs you to open a webpage link to a hypnosis session by the author. The website is a bunch of marketing BS that wants a paid subscription! There is NO links to the media suggested in the book. I am very disappointed
I now understand how socially conditioned towards alcohol most of us are from a very young age. Informative without being punitive.
This was very helpful for me as it explains very clearly how we've been conditioned to treat alcohol as an inseparable part of life despite being a strong and very harmful drug (for the society and the individuals). I think it can help many. Continuous references to family situations can be annoying for someone who doesn't conform/ agree /follow to the conventional life model
