It can and it will immediately get you rid of your desire the cravings to drink alcohol. For this CBT and any other CBT to work, you have to actively question your cognitions, hence it does not work for a everyone. Not everyone succeeds at questioning their cognitions for one reason or another even when they think they do. If you are the type of person on whom CBT is effective, then this book is for you it will work like a magic This book is an effective CBT cognitive behavioral therapy. If you are the type of person on whom CBT is effective, then this book is for you it will work like a magic pill.
If you have tried CBT 10 times with different therapists and none of them could help you, then this book won't be of any help for this group of people, the book will feel very repetitive. I had to read the book twice for it to work on me. That's just how it is with therapy sometimes. Nov 23, Caitlin rated it it was amazing. This worked for me! My drinking was destroying my life and my relationships. I felt out of control. Not even a little. That is the greatest thing about this. Objective examination of harms associated with 20 of the most commonly used legal and illegal drugs ranked alcohol as the most dangerous.
I was an alcoholic, albeit not a final "If we discovered alcohol today, we would restrict and criminalise its use in the same way we have for drugs such as heroin. I was an alcoholic, albeit not a final stage one - you could have called me social drinker, or heavy drinker, but once I realised I was actually addicted to the drug - to the point that I couldn't enjoy a social moment if alcohol wasn't present - then I decided to stop this mindless consumption.
This book helped me immensely, and I recommend it to anyone. As with every drugs, addiction lurks right behind. Be mindful in what you put into your body, and in what quantity! Dec 03, Diana Ubilla rated it it was ok Shelves: moving-towards-me-always , help-yo-self. I actually think there is more positive in this book than not.
It did help me have a shift in thinking about alcohol as an addictive substance just like all other 'vilified' addictive substances out there think heroin, nicotine. Best I can explain - I don't use heroin because I have decided at some point in my life that the high is not worth the risk of using it. I'd imagine that it's vilification and it being illegal played a large role in that.
The other way I'd conceptualize it is comparing I actually think there is more positive in this book than not.
The other way I'd conceptualize it is comparing it to smoking cigarettes- i don't smoke bc I've decided that the health risk of cigs are not worth the health effects of smoking cigarettes. Now I understand alcohol in a similar way- addictive and dangerous. Of course I knew these things about alcohol on some level but I do feel like this book made a shift in my mind regarding alcohol.
I also agree that for most people there is a psychological addiction to alcohol what he calls The big monster and that the physical addiction is for most people minimal. I do believe this to be true but he also bases a large portion of the book on the premise that most people get that restless, antsy, anxious and "I want a drink" feeling because alcohol is leaving their system this they are, on some level, physically addicted he calls this The little monster.
He states that once one stops drinking it will only take days up to 10 to 'kill the little monster' i. Withdraw and that any withdrawal symptoms on has are mostly psychological and that even physical symptoms of withdrawal are psychological. While I agree that likely most people are not so physically addicted that they will be at rush for 'the shakes' as he calls them Read potential seizures or DY's he majorly minimizes this and this could be dangerous and potentially life threatening for a portion of people who are THAT physically addicted.
He is irresponsible in not mentioning this. That said, I could see how this book would be very helpful on a journey to sobriety in many ways. So I'm not saying don't read it- I just had to speak my thoughts on the potential dangers of unmonitored withdrawal for some people. Truth about alcohol trap Instead of disempowering onesself by common AA type programs , this book empowers the individual by allowing us to see the real trap of alcohol usage. The great news? Alcohol is my number 1 worst weakness that impacts many areas of my life and diminishes my emotional guidance system - ie its the number one thing holding me back.
I am grateful to be aware of this and now step into a differ Truth about alcohol trap Instead of disempowering onesself by common AA type programs , this book empowers the individual by allowing us to see the real trap of alcohol usage. I am grateful to be aware of this and now step into a different direction away from the trap. I would only add I think there will be times all of us might still want to drink. I recommend EFT tapping to use in conjunction with this book.
The reason I gave this book a 4 is because he does bring up some really good points that make you think about why you even drink in the first place. Like are there any actual positive reasons? He goes through many examples that make you think just a little bit differently. I didn't give it a 5 because I think he is a terrible writer, uses poor examples and arguments, and makes a lot of assumptions. Despite this, if you read it with an open mind and try to understand where he is coming from, you w The reason I gave this book a 4 is because he does bring up some really good points that make you think about why you even drink in the first place.
Despite this, if you read it with an open mind and try to understand where he is coming from, you will get value out of reading this book.

For me Friday evening drinks were sacred and if you would tell me before to stop buying Friday night beer, I'd laugh. That was a long awaited treat. Now I'm free! The book contains many great ideas, but also lots of bullshit. Some parts writer could have just skipped. But I'm giving this book 5 stars because it was a very effective way to rethink alcohol.
Jan 16, Robyn rated it it was amazing Shelves: recovery. If anyone out there is struggling with drinking and you want to slow down or quit, I suggest the audio version of this. The content itself seems unbelievably simple, and a little dated and regionally specific even, but after listening to it, I have no desire to drink. At all. Was it hypnotism? Subliminal suggestion? I don't know about you, but if it worked, I don't really care why in this case. Oct 08, Patrick rated it it was amazing.
If you are open minded and have an IQ over six you'll think this book deserves five stars. It is quite repetitive, but I understand that it's necessary for person who is in the alcohol trap. Jul 29, Michael rated it it was amazing. Two years after quitting smoking, thought I'd give this book a try to see if it can guide me towards cutting out alcohol from my life completely. Oct 25, excalibur rated it did not like it. I read the Easy Way to Stop Smoking and it worked for me. It made sense: smoking gives you absolutely nothing. But drinking does.
Jan 19, Tangerine rated it really liked it Shelves: I was your classic social drinker who drank maybe once or twice a week or even once a month just to have social confidence but when I did I never knew if I'd have 2 drinks or 6. I didn't like my relationship to alcohol so I read this book out of curiosity. It helped me to see the ridiculousness of all of the social conditioning that makes us think we need alcohol to be an adult and have fun.
I decided I didn't want to be a part of that machine anymore and to find the joy inside myself to have fu I was your classic social drinker who drank maybe once or twice a week or even once a month just to have social confidence but when I did I never knew if I'd have 2 drinks or 6. I decided I didn't want to be a part of that machine anymore and to find the joy inside myself to have fun and confidence at social functions.
I didn't necessarily agree with all of it but it must have worked because I have had zero desire to drink since finishing this book and it feels amazing to be free. Apr 09, Annica rated it it was amazing. Awesome alternative to AA. Allen employs an attitude of reverse brain washing by looking at alcohol for what it really is, rather than what we've been culturally and socially conditioned to believe.
Instead of 'giving up' drinking Allen talks about freeing ourselves from the shackles of alcohol, rather than spending the rest of ones life resisting the next drink, one day at a time, he proposes that we celebrate the liberation and all the benefits a sober life provides: waking up feeling rested a Awesome alternative to AA. Instead of 'giving up' drinking Allen talks about freeing ourselves from the shackles of alcohol, rather than spending the rest of ones life resisting the next drink, one day at a time, he proposes that we celebrate the liberation and all the benefits a sober life provides: waking up feeling rested and well, having a clear head, not regretting or wondering what might have been said in a discussion or at a social gathering.
Essentially, there are no benefits to drinking alcohol whatsoever, and Allen addresses and removes each of the excuses why we drink beyond doubt. Sep 18, Steliyan Stoyanov rated it it was amazing Shelves: personal-development. I stopped smoking because of this man, this was 4 years ago I think. I've never craved cigarette despite the first weeks , which is more of a habit than anything else. He has unique style of writing which really suits me. Maybe there were some weird examples and comparison here-and-there, but overall I really agree with him.
I think the content of book can easily be mapped to any other addiction YOU consider harmful or not positive. Let's see what happens from now on. Apr 10, Kristopher Kelly rated it really liked it.
The language is super-repetitive, but maybe that's the point. I loved this book, even if the writing was hokey.

The message was clear. The thinking was clear. Lots of great arguments against drinking and in favor of sobriety. May have rid me of my desire to drink alcohol. Yeah, I know that sounds ridiculous. But it might be true. It really might be true. Jul 17, Tracy Skorka rated it it was amazing. Glad to have awoken and evolved in this realm at least.
Alcohol is a waste of time, money, and a poison. An escape that one should avoid and stay in the present instead. Especially if you suffer from anxiety and depression. This definitely confirmed it. May go back to this book if I ever doubt myself again, but not likely.
Definitely recommended. I read the book then immediately quit drinking. No cravings, no willpower. The week before I did the same thing with his 'quit smoking' book. That was 2 years ago and its effects and lessons are entirely undiminished. Sep 12, Aj rated it it was ok. I read this book more out of interest rather than any great need to control my drinking. To an extent it does help to reframe alcohol and drinking.autoconfig.cigliola.eu.org/58-comprar-azithromycin.php
Allen Carr's Easy Way to Control Alcohol
However, it is very dogmatic and at times patronising. Some of his comparisons to smoking and heroin just don't fit and others are just plain wrong. Apr 30, April Pitcairn rated it it was amazing. Absolutely the best book I ever read!!! Apr 26, Naresh Tanna rated it really liked it. I no longer drink or see a point to drinking. Easy read and it will change your life for the better.
This book was very helpful and gave me a refreshing perspective. I know blokes who feel like that when their football team loses at the weekend! Even at their worse they sound no more unpleasant than a touch of flu! Of course not. Even heavy drinkers. Why not take a look at our alcohol seminar and on-demand service information and Frequently Asked Questions on our website? Has the way we drink changed dramatically over the past few decades? Even today — new ways of describing or labelling the effects of drinking on our behaviour seem to appear as each week passes.
You could say that the only differences in recent years are the amount of alcohol drunk is there such a thing as a small glass of wine anymore?
