Publisher's Summary

Jack Canfield, the number-one New York Times best-selling author of the Chicken Soup for the Soul® franchise and coauthor of The Success Principles, and Dave Andrews, a recovery expert, join forces to present a revolutionary program to help you cut back or quit drinking entirely - in the privacy of your own home.

Alcohol kills one person every 10 seconds worldwide, according to the World Health Organization. Thankfully, now, for anyone who feels that alcohol has become a problem - and for the 23.5 million Americans living in recovery and looking to be reinspired - this new program introduces a groundbreaking model for sobriety that you can achieve in your own home.

The 30-Day Sobriety Solution grew out of Jack Canfield's decades-long work in self-esteem and success training. Its principles were carefully developed into a program by Dave Andrews and tested by thousands whose amazing stories of recovery are shared throughout the book. Organized into five phases that span 30-day periods, this book guides you through each day with practical exercises that, over time, allow you to more easily make positive choices again and again. "The Sobriety System" is an empowerment program that moves systematically from beliefs (including limiting ones) to feelings and emotions to concrete actions and behaviors that promote better outcomes.

Integrating neuroscience, cognitive therapy, proven tools, and teachings, The 30-Day Sobriety Solution is a clear, practical daily program that will help you achieve your goals - whether that's getting sober or just cutting back - and create positive, permanent change in your life.

A Key Ingredient for Me!

When it comes to problem drinking each of us needs their own recipe for success. This book was a key ingredient for me. I listened everyday and worked the solutions when time allowed. Or should I say, I let the solutions work me?! This book helped me understand the WHY of my drinking and give me the positive HOW of living sober. The companion website is loaded with helpful videos, tips, links and a forum. There were a few things that wasn't a fit for me but I gained so much more.

As part of my recipe I also listened to Kevin O"Hara's Alcohol Mastery podcasts daily. Firstly, I'm not affiliated or being paid by either of these. They were both part of my personal recipe along with exercise, diet, sleep learning/meditation and over the counter supplements. Yes that's a lot of ingredients but they each played an important role in helping me to clear my body and mind from the effects of the poison. Becoming a problem drinker wasn't the result of just one day or one thing for me. It took a lot of days and decisions to get there so I took a few to get back.

If you've tried everything with no success please don't give up. Your recipe is out there or it may even be right here in this book.

So very helpful

What did you love best about The 30-Day Sobriety Solution?

I love the way that it's broken into individual days and each day has different action steps and exercises to do. There is also a companion website which was another great tool.

Any additional comments?

I've tried for a few years to get my drinking under control. This book has been the catalyst to make it happen.

not just quitting...changing!

I've succeeded in abstaining for a month in the past but I've never been helped like this before. the book is stuffed with sound counseling and doable assignments that create self-understanding and motivation. I'm a counselor, not an AA member, and I feel so grateful to have stumbled onto this book so that I now am proud and rewarded by thriving in sobriety. I recommend the audio version and a journal.

Sober for 60+ days

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, it's a well laid out program with just enough content each day to keep you busy and SOBER!

What did you like best about this story?

The daily action steps.

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

No, it wouldn't be effective

Any additional comments?

I drank alcohol daily for over 40 years. I was never able to quit for more than a few days in a row. I tried other methods but none of them worked. Most recently, I was drinking at least a pint a day plus a beer or two. If you really want to "quit" drinking, then I highly recommend this audiobook. It's over 60 days since my last drink and I hardly even think about it now. If I do, the thought quickly goes away. During this time I went on vacation in the Florida Keys with my wife and didn't have any alcohol, even though she did have an occasional glass of wine. I also celebrated my birthday without having any alcohol, the first time since I turned 18 years old. This method works and there's no need to go to group meetings!

Opened my Eyes, changed my thinking

I had fallen into a habit that was destructive. Drinking every night, stuck in a revolving door. This book helped me see what I was doing, how I had to readjust my thinking, and encouraged me to keep going. It's full of truth, hope, wisdom, and encouragement. I loved it. I no longer drink every night. I occasionally have a glass or two of wine, at a party or event. But never alone, and it doesn't have any power over me. It wasn't an overnight change! You have to follow through. I'm grateful and highly recommend this audiobook. I've listened to it again and again. This book offers encouragement to anyone who feels stuck in this destructive habit.

A must read for addicts of all kinds.

Very inspiring and encouraging. A How To for loving life again, not just how to not drink. AA didn't work for me, but this program did. It does feel repetitive at times but for a good reason. It all centers around the theme of removing the reason for addiction and becoming inspired for life all over again. I'll be reading it again.

Super disappointed

I bought the book however the website isn't working, the phone number goes to an answering machine and all the links to support are broken. I also messaged them on facebook and never got a reply back so needless to say, I wasn't able to finish day 1 and hope i can get a refund.

I had to quit it. it sounds like an infomercial.

After 10 minutes or so, I realised they had not said anything except selling the book I just bought. it sounded like a long commercial. Maybe it gets better later. I'll never know.

This book changed my life

I have been grappling with my drinking for half my life. The day after a totally embarrassing drinking situation I looked up books on quitting drinking and found this one. Today I finished my day 30, and in the process learned so much about myself.

The only thing that has worked for me in 5 years!!

I have tried to quit or cut back several times in my lifetime. I have bought supplements that were supposed to reduce cravings. This book as well as the companion website fixed me. Keep in mind you can NOT just read or listen to the audio book. You have to take full advantage of the material, videos, and exercises on the website. I have 3 full journals from the exercises after each day. Putting it all down on paper really helps. Thank you Jack and Dave!

Worked for me

I am currently 6 weeks sober after years of heavy drinking and numerous stints in and out of aa but nothing ever changed the way I thought about drinking like this has. The daily steps keep you motivated me inspired to
Keep going. I've never felt so happy and relaxed to be sober. Well worth a read!

Infuriating

This book promises the world, but delivers its strategy with rhetoric. There’s a hefty dose of hand-wringing piousness mixed with big dollop of Christianity-infused judgment. The audio version has some nauseating delivery too.

Life saver

This book is a must read if you want to really quit drinking. It's more like a "find the pothole in your road and fix it" type of book.
Great help.
