Publisher's Summary

My name is Craig Beck (from StopDrinkingExpert.com), and I am the Internet's foremost expert in helping people quit drinking alcohol. I've already helped thousands of people just like you get back in control of their addiction or stop drinking alcohol completely.

I understand how it feels to be worried about your drinking because for nearly 20 years I struggled with my own problem. I tried everything to stop drinking alcohol, from creating silly rules about what I was "allowed" to drink to going through torturous "dry months" and taking dangerous prescription-only medication! Absolutely nothing I tried worked until I dramatically changed my thinking. I also discovered some disturbing secrets that the alcohol industry doesn't want you to know. Then I used my former experience as a clinical hypnotist to construct a system to help anyone get their drinking back under control. I cured my own drinking problem (virtually overnight), and now I can help you stop drinking alcohol using the exact same painless method.

Been Trying for Decades....

If you could sum up Stop Drinking Alcohol: Quit Drinking with the Alcohol Lied to Me Method in three words, what would they be?

Inspiration w/common sense.

What did you like best about this story?

Truthfulness

What does Craig Beck bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I got through it faster by listening during commute than I would have reading it at home!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No. Need time to absorb as you go.

Any additional comments?

I have been trying for decades, battling with drinking. I think with the help of this book at the website that goes with it I might just make it.

Has helped already.

I’ve only just started and finished this audiobook over the past 3-4 days. I know it is a bit too early and will report back at a later date, yet not quite sure what it is, but haven’t had a drink since starting it and it’s been about 4 days and haven’t even had a real craving. I’ve had issues with drink since being a typical American teenager which only got worse and worse as I got older. I mostly binge drank for years maybe a couple times a week with friends, at social events, vacations etc, but this eventually turned into nightly drinking after a painful divorce. Never considered myself an alcoholic and actually despise that term and that’s why AA, while I respect it, was never really for me. After my divorce around 42 years old and a DUI within 3 months of my leaving my ex-wife, I quit drinking for about two weeks, but then went right back to drinking literally every night for about 4 years to numb my pain. I was functional and am actually an anesthesia professional.

I met a great girl and dated her for about a year around 2 years after my divorce, but ultimately I lost that relationship directly due to my drinking. Luckily, a year after that relationship, I found the love of my life and got remarried. We are super happy together almost all the time. The only time we have ever truly had issues is when I drank a lot. I would make all the excuses and “rules for drinking,” very similar to what Craig mentioned in his book to try and “manage” my drinking. I have been a student and teacher of Zen and various forms of meditation and truly believe in the Law of Attraction and the power of the mind and loving in the moment. I picked up this book after listening to some of his mediations on quoting drinking, knowing that somehow willpower wasn’t enough and that as he stated, I needed a true and total shift in my mind/paradigm to the core of my beliefs/feelings/social training and habit mind to truly escape the habit of drinking. The almost immediate change in perception from using will-power to quit, to seeing through all the social lies about the poison we call alcohol was a real breakthrough for me. I already feel physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually better and can’t wait to feel even better, day by day as I get further and further away from drinking. I sleep better, spend more time with my wife and our 4 kids, actually want to workout again and even help my wife in our new Med spa business. I will stay in touch! Thanks Craig!

DANGEROUS misunderstanding of addiction and mental health, but masterful at disciplining egomaniacs

This author does not understand mental health or addiction to DANGEROUS degrees. As a DBT, SLAA graduate with a trail of dead addict friends, it was easy to laugh when he was insanely wrong, BUT, as a fellow ego maniac who uses alcohol to feed the ego I related to this a lot. He certainly understands egomania, but an egomaniac's perspective that didn't cater to my mental health was fun and interesting. Enjoyed, but be careful if you haven't had extensive therapy. Cheers!

1 Year Since Reading This Book & Alcohol Free

This book really works. I started listening to this audio book with no expectations. After understanding the machine behind alcohol in our society I lost the desire for it. I have increased energy, better sleep, and more money in my pocket. I am proud to have made it a year without a single drink and no desire to ever have one again. Listen and learn and change your life.

It works!!!!

I am a social drinker or I thought. But I wanted to stop! I tried many ways and nothing worked I made every excuse in the book. I chose this audio book because I wanted to stop drinking now!!!! The day I purchased it I was traveling to a tidal shower and at the shower they were serving wine and cocktails and I looked at those drinks as poison it’s only been 5 days but I have not even had the desire to drink. I am listening to the book over and over it’s the first thing that has ever worked in years. I am not tired and I have so much more energy everyday if you think you drink too much you probably do and this book will help you stop.

Great help.

Very helpful. Useful information that convinced me I needed to quit drinking forever. I was really just looking for something to get my drinking under control but after reading this book I realized in my mind that the only way to control it was to quit. Im grateful this tool was available for my use.
Today I start a new chapter and journey in my life as a non drinker. I know it won't be easy but alcohol has had such a negative impact on my life that drinking cannot be an option anymore. I'm ready to live again!

Worked for me!!!

Any additional comments?

This book really worked for me. I wanted to wait before giving a review incase I "fell of the wagon" but I've now been eight weeks without alcohol. I think you need to be ready for change though.....If you DO decide the time is right I highly recommend this book. The audio version is a delight to listen to as you hear continued enthusiasm in Craigs voice. Five stars from me

Incredible. I've stopped drinking!

I noticed I was drinking more than my friends. Every time we were out or had some friends over, I would end up with a drink in my hand. Then I started drinking alone too. "To relax." "To stop feeling lonely when my partner wasn't home." And very often "To help me clean up by engaging me in the activity." And then I started hiding how much I had to drink. Taking alcohol with me in a plastic bottle when I was visiting family who don't drink much. Drinking lots before going to a pub "to save money."

I wanted to stop but ended up STILL questioning myself. No one saw that the problem was real. I'm successful at work, just got yet another promotion. I have a fantastic partner.
I thought alcohol made everything more fun. I thought alcohol made ME more fun. Craig's audio book destroyed that misconception.

I guess what bothered me the most was waking up with a moral hangover. And because I've been drinking for about 17 years, I started being worried about my liver. So I downloaded the audiobook.

Craig approaches the problem from many different angles. He addresses issues with your reason, your subconsciousness and your physical body. All in such a short audio book, in simple language, using easy to relate stories and humour. I listened to the audiobook, bought a bunch of vitamins, as he recommended, and yesterday, before being surrounded by drinks (Friday evening), just in case, did a hypnosis session using Craig's another audiobook.

It's early days but I haven't had a drink in 6 days now and am not planning on having it now, tomorrow, or maybe ever. I don't know. As Craig says: what matters the most is NOW. I only wanted to reduce how much I drunk but now I just don't want it at all! I refused to drink three times so far, when offered. I just don't feel like it, I don't need it, it's disgusting, it's POISON. I want to be healthy.

It's incredible how accurate his descriptions are. Last night I dreamt about drinking, just the way he described! In my dream I was out and mindlessly had a drink before realising i wasn't "supposed to". But my friends already got me even more drinks, I was surrounded by 3 more! And I didn't want them anymore!

Listen to this audiobook. It will change the way you see alcohol.

Fantastic, I have stopped drinking!

The most important part of an audio book is how easy it is to listen to the narrator. Craig Beck narrates his own books and I find him very easy to listen to, his speech is clear and at the right tempo with no annoying sounds from his voice.

The stop drinking information has made me want to stop drinking immediately, after many decades of heavy drinking.

His approach doesn't take willpower, it shows you a different way of looking at and thinking about alcohol, which has worked for me. I no longer wish to have or feel the need to have alcohol in my life.

I can wholeheartedly recommend this audio-book.

Most definitely works!

A bottle of wine a night and more at the weekend for almost 10 years. I listened twice to this audiobook within a week then bought the recommended vitamin supplements (which helped a lot) I stopped that day, in November and I won't be drinking again. Do yourself and your family a favour and listen to this

Immediately made me think differently

Couldn't stop listening, friendly and charming when required. Stern and powerful when needed. An excellent listen that I'll be putting on repeat immediately. For the first time I feel as though I might have a chance to begin a sober life!

unbelievable.

Have tried several times to stop drinking and failed. I can honestly say I didn't need to try again after listening to this audio book. no magic involved just plain facts. I didn't want to drink and have not since i finished listening to it. highly recommend this book for anyone struggling to give up alcohol. thanks Craig.

Brilliant book that delivers on its promises

Where does Stop Drinking Alcohol: Quit Drinking with the Alcohol Lied to Me Method rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It has literally changed my life.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Stop Drinking Alcohol: Quit Drinking with the Alcohol Lied to Me Method?

Nothing - and that's what's clever about it. It's an easily listening book. And when you finish it, the 'magic' has happened without you even realising it.

What does Craig Beck bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

The author narrates his own book so he reads it to you exactly as he intended it to be heard. He also has a great voice which is really nice to listen to. He used to be a radio broadcaster and has a very smooth voice.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Almost - I listened to it at every opportunity until it was finished.

Any additional comments?

It delivered as promised - I have been a heavy drinker for most of my life, and this book has enabled me to see alcohol for what it really is, and genuinely not desire it anymore.
