Publisher's summary

Millions of people worry that drinking is affecting their health, yet are unwilling to seek change because of the misery and stigma associated with alcoholism and recovery. They fear drinking less will be boring, difficult and involve deprivation, and significant lifestyle changes.

This Naked Mind offers a new solution. Packed with surprising insight into the reasons we drink, it will open your eyes to the startling role of alcohol in our culture. Annie Grace brilliantly weaves psychological, neurological, cultural, social and industry factors with her extraordinarily candid journey resulting in a must-listen for anyone who drinks.

This audiobook, without scare tactics, pain or rules, gives you freedom from alcohol. By addressing causes rather than symptoms it is a permanent solution rather than lifetime struggle. It removes the psychological dependence allowing you to easily drink less (or stop drinking). Annie's clarity, humour and unique ability to blend original research with riveting storytelling ensures you will thoroughly enjoy the process.

In a world defined by 'never enough', Annie takes us on an intellectual journey through the world of alcohol and specifically the connection between alcohol and pleasure. She dispels the cultural myth that alcohol is a vital part of life and demonstrates how regaining control over alcohol is not only essential to personal happiness and fulfilment but also to ending the heartache experienced by millions as a result of second-hand drinking.

Finally, with perfect clarity, this book opens the door to the life you have been waiting for.

The BEST support you could possibly have!

We are a +3,000 strong alcohol support group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/OYNBPirates/ and we use this book as our main support tool. It's ideal for anyone new to cutting down or giving up on alcohol, which is a journey rather than a one-time event. We can't recommend this book highly enough, Annie Grace is the 'guru' when it comes to this subject!

Good but a bit repetitive

Good book, great performance, but a bit repetitive and lacking structure. Also a bit too emotional, overly dramatic and scarce on the facts.

Got me sober keeps me sober.

this book gave me freedom from alcohol and from the stigma of the non medical irrational recoverism.

I used to wish I could drink but couldn't because I had a character defect. Now I know the truth: alcohol is an addictive drug and nothing abnormal happened to me.

I became addicted to an addictive drug. Of course!

👍🏻

Fantastic book. Has inspired me to give up alcohol. Annie’s description of alcohol and it’s effects on our bodies and minds resonates.

Highly recommend it

If you are questioning your relationship with alcohol, this book is a must listen. There are so many truths in this book, it really opened my eyes. I now look at the world of alcohol with different eyes. Annie has given me the power to stop drinking alcohol without judgement of my friends and family that still do.

I also love a book that is narrated by the author and this book is well delivered.
