Publisher's Summary

Challenge your thinking, find clarity, and form new habits with a 30-day alcohol-free experiment from the author of This Naked Mind.

Changing your habits can be hard without the right tools. This is especially true for alcohol because habits are, by definition, subconscious thought processes. Through her methodical research of the latest neuroscience and her own journey, Annie Grace has cracked the code on habit change by addressing the specific ways habits form. This unique and unprecedented method has now helped thousands redefine their relationship to drinking painlessly and without misery. 

In The Alcohol Experiment, Annie offers a judgment-free action plan for anyone who's ever wondered what life without alcohol is like. The rules are simple: Abstain from drinking for 30 days and just see how you feel. Annie arms her listeners with the science-backed information to address the cultural and emotional conditioning we experience around alcohol. The result is a mindful approach that puts you back in control and permanently stops cravings.

With a chapter devoted to each day of the experiment, Annie presents wisdom, tested strategies, and thought-provoking information to supplement the plan and support your step-by-step success as you learn what feels good for you. It's your body, your mind, and your choice.

Realistic, inspiring

this book is really well done and well performed. I decided to take this on at the same time as The Whole30 in order to cleanse my mind and my system of things that were poisoning me. I don't consider myself an alcoholic, but a lot of people in my family are, and alcohol weaves itself in and out of my life and my marriage quite frequently. It's a substance that hurts everything around me and I decided that it shouldn't be in my life anymore. So I took on this book with some skepticism, cuz I don't think the whole Alcoholics Anonymous applies to me, since I don't feel like I belong in that camp. But this really spoke to me, it's well-researched scientific and at the same time inspirational. There are no unrealistic expectations, it doesn't make you feel guilty, and it gives you real world examples of people have done this and have succeeded. I highly recommend this book. I am on day 7 of this, and I feel amazing. I don't feel like I need this substance in order to have fun in my life life, or to sleep. It's an awkward adjustment, but this book really gives you strength. I am so clear-headed, calm, and serene that I have no desire to go back. I can walk by a whole entire aisle of beer and wine and not feel a pull. I feel energetic every single morning, even tho my sleep patterns aren't quite yet. I used alcohol to self-medicate during times of stress, reward for having an effective day, or just to sleep. I really use it to sleep. I have insomnia and it's really hard. But this just made it worse. And the way I feel in the morning now as compared to when I did when I would have a drink before I would go to bed is Light Years. Even if I slept harder and longer with a drink in my system, and I sleep less if I don't have that drink, I feel 100 times better in the morning for it. I get up earlier, I do a lot more things in the morning, like walk my dog and take care of things in the house before I go to work, I work out, and at night, I have so much more room to do things when I don't have alcohol in my system like read and study for what I need to know in my career. This is really showing me something different and new on a whole other level. Thank you Annie for a wonderful book.

This really works

I’ve been listening to various books on alcohol for a year and this one explained everything so well that you can’t help but stop drinking. I made the decision and now I don’t have any desire to have even one drink.

Just what I needed

This book is broken into daily lessons and encouragements so that their is a pep talk on each of the 30 days. There are plenty of facts to help...Knowlege is after all power. For anyone wanting to explore the possibility of giving up or cutting back on alcohol, this book will be a great companion for a 30 day jump start.
