Publisher's Summary

Allen Carr's Easyway is the most effective stop-smoking method of all time and it has now been successfully applied to a wide range of other issues. Here the method focuses on one of the fastest-growing problems of modern times for women: drinking.

Alcohol blights women's lives often in a distinctly different way to men's: women tend to stay at home drinking alcohol; women often feel particular shame over drinking too much; drinking around children can be a particular burden. In summary there are a lot of added pressures on women to stop drinking, and often they feel this is an impossible task.

Luckily, Allen Carr's Easyway makes it easy to stop drinking. It's the tried-and-tested cessation method that really works. With startling insight into why women drink and clear, simple, step-by-step instructions, Allen Carr shows you the way to escape from the alcohol trap in the time it takes to listen to this audiobook.

Makes a compelling argument to stop drinking

I think this is a very sensible book. Everyone should read it. It made me realize how much I don't enjoy drinking. Looking forward to feeling and looking my best!

Not a fan

This book claims to tell you the easy way to quit drinking.....classic too easy to be true situation. I listened for hours patiently waiting for the 'steps' and 'methods' they promised would change my life. There aren't any. Just think of alcohol as poison they say. And remember that people are attracted to shyness, and you don't need to be the life of the party, so voila! Just quit drinking! Waste of time. Learned nothing.

Just listen and absorb....

It really works... Haven't had a drink in 32 days... don't want one... can think about alcohol without wanting a drink. I can be around alcohol and not want to drink. The desire is gone. I just want to be me in a clear head and a healthy body. Not sure why nothing else seemed to work, but listening to this book made me see things differently. The only thing I can say is just listen and absorb what you hear. Stop the insanity of drinking for no reason-- things don't get better when you do drink, do they? If they do, do what you must... but if they don't, it's time to make a change.

Excellent

This really resonates with me. I highly recommend it. I think listening to it, as well as the written version is a good way to go. That way I can highlight, mark, and go back to easily for reference.

This book delivered for me

I always knew AA wouldn't work for me. So, when I knew I was in serious trouble with alcohol, l did some research and became convinced AA was a bad bet for anyone. I stumbled into Allen Carr rather by accident in Stephen Guise's Mini Habits. I got the ebook, then when nearing the final steps got the audible book as well. I doubled back twice to re-read before entering the last steps, then finished with the audio. Following my ritual last drink, l immediately had no more desire for alcohol. Until then I was afraid of failing to quit, but no more.

Best one so far

I’m reading a number of books to help me stop drinking and this touched a chord with me. Really makes sense. I’ve listened to it twice so far. The narration is great. I strongly recommend it, stick with it to the end and best of luck!

Great book

I have read and listened to a few books on quitting drinking and this one was the best by far. I feel like I will finally be able to quit drinking with the help of this book.

I am now a non drinker. After 15 years.

I previously listened to Easy Way the original and quit for around 4 months after being a 4-5 days a week drinker for 15 years. But some 'friend talked my into having a glass of wine at her house and I caved. Back to old habbits, lost friends, money etc etc over the past year so bought the womens version determined to stop again. 1 week in and I'm not fussed about drinking at all. Not been out yet as Im going to listen a few more times to reall get it into my head. Brilliant life changing book. Must read more than once though or you may forget and slip as I did the first time around.

Excellent book

This book completely put alcohol into perspective for me. It took away the self blame and helped me to see that alcohol has been lying to me for years. I now realise how stupid drinking a disinfectant, cleaner, fuel, antiseptic, poison is. Totally liberating.

Everything has changed!

I downloaded the audio book and listened to the full 6 hours in one day. The kids were at school and I did the housework with my headphones on, I would never have had the time to read the book. I'm not sure how the process has worked but it has and I couldn't be happier! I've gone from using willpower to stop drinking in the past to now having no desire for it at all, incredible! It is very very repetitive and at some points I nearly turned off but I'm so glad I followed through and persevered to the end. If you know you want to stop drinking but need a bit of help to figure out how then this may help you too.

If you have a drink problem you need to read this

I have struggled with alcohol for the last 10 years and this book has helped me to understand why. I am so grateful for this book showing me how to stop drinking with ease. If you drink more than you want to, read this book but you must keep an open mind and accept the truth about alcohol.

Thank you

What did you like about this audiobook?

This book is life changing. All women with a drinking problem should read.

Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

Great understanding of issues faced by women and how to fix them.

feeling healthy, sleeping better.

The 'little monster' is a little annoying but only tiggles for about 1 minute. big breaths and diversion helps. Im not a heavy drinker but was daily for years. I can feel the benefits already. best of luck

great book read by professor umbridge

I loved the content but really struggled to push through as I found the reader sounded quite condescending. I had to really focus on the content and not the delivery. For some reason my brain pictured her as Professor Umbridge from the Harry Potter series 🤷🏼‍♀️

Great book awful narration.

This is a great book but it’s narration is really really boring. It’s obviously narrated by a woman who has no understanding of the power behind Alan Carr’s words. She obviously has had no problem with alcohol and is somewhat quietly patronising in manner. My advice is read the book instead.

Great advice....but...

I found this book full of helpful information and suggestions, but I find some of the language and tone very condescending for example big monster and little monster and referring to those who choose to drink as people to be pitied. it has changed how I perceive alcohol though and I'm excited to be giving it up.

Definitely The Easy Way

Would you listen to The Easy Way for Women to Stop Drinking again? Why?

I would listen to this book again to confirm why I don't wont to drink anymore

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

Her voice is very hypnotising and was very easy to listen to

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

I listened to this book as I walked my dog each morning

Any additional comments?

This book made you very aware about how much alcohol is a part of everyday life. I am quite happy now to go anywhere without the need to have a drink and definitely don't feel like I am missing out. Totally recommend, I have even passed onto a few of my friends. I feel amazing.
