Publisher's Summary

Craig Beck was a successful and functioning professional man in spite of a "two bottles of wine a night" drinking habit. For 20 years, he struggled with a problem drinking, all the time refusing to label himself an alcoholic because he did not think he met the stereotypical image that the word portrayed.

All these "willpower" based attempts to stop drinking failed. 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 audiobook, he will lead you through the same amazing process. You can stop drinking today.... No need to declare yourself an alcoholic. No group meetings or expensive rehab. No humiliation, no pain, and no "willpower" required.

Alcohol Lied to Me has already helped thousands of people to escape from alcohol addiction. Newly updated, this third edition of the audiobook includes two new chapters.

More convincing than competitive books about this.

I just finished listening to Alcohol Lied to Me and Escaping the Evil Clown audiobooks. They are the best books I've heard yet on dealing with alcohol. I gave up alcohol this spring for 3 months after listening to The Easy Way to Control Alcohol by Allen Carr because I wanted to lose 25 pounds before I went on a 7 week backpack hike (and I did lose the 25 pounds, alcohol weakens my appetite will power and I put on weight if I drink). I did my 7 week backpack this summer but did drink once every 8 days when we had a zero mileage day and resumed drinking after finishing the hike but in the 2 months since then I've gained 7 pounds and wanted to give up drinking again to keep the weight off and I'm on day 11 of abstinence now. Beck's audiobooks are much more convincing than Carr's book and this time I plan to make it permanent. I know I can go without alcohol as I do it for 7 weeks every summer on my annual backpack hikes. I do really appreciate the author explaining everything the way he does though. I did not realize about the 24 hour withdrawal urge (it explains it perfectly, 24 hours after giving up wine is when I want it again the most). Also I'm glad to know that after 2 weeks, one doesn't really have that withdrawal urge anymore. I'm also glad to have the mental image of how horrible alcohol is by itself. The author is right, I'd never drink it straight. And the realization that alcohol kills cells (that's why it's used to sterilize things) is a powerful image. I do want to 100% eliminate alcohol from my life the rest of my life though as I know it's the best way to live a healthy life and save money too. Not only will one save money on alcohol not bought but also on about 30% less food bought as one without alcohol does not eat as much. PS, I'm 68.

Useful.

Useful info. But I found Allen Carr's method much better. The book would have been better if he elaborated more on topics of ego and sub-sub-conscious mind.

Excellent read, more people should be talking about this! Truly hoping people start to catch on that what they're drinking is actually a poison.

Felt like jazz man from the fast show was trying to flog me a used car.

Nothing altruistic about this book.

If you’re thinking of giving up

I really purchased this to help support me going AF. Early days but I enjoyed the persuasive elements which helped me stick to my AF commitment. I would recommend this to help you too.

Holds the mirror up to the reality of alcohol in society in a way I was not expecting but could unfortunately all too easily relate to. Had to stop listening a few times as home truths rang a bit too loudly! Good book and glad I listened to the end.

Life changing book

I've read numerous books to stop the evil habit of drinking alcohol, just finished this one today and I genuinely feel different, that urge to drink seems to have gone.
I'm sure there will be some difficult days the next few weeks, but the way I feel now I'm sure I can deal with them.
