    "Very interesting"

    I can see how alcoholics stopped drinking after reading this book. People who don't quit haven't really understood the book , understanding the book and its message is something you've never heard before about drinking , be prepared to be shocked as the story twists. I myself have told all my friends I have stopped drinking after reading this , will it last? Only Time will tell .. I believe it will. I'm free. Come into this book as skeptical as you want.

    "Very effective, although could do with some modernisation re comparisons"

    I never would have believed how effective this book could be.

    You need to stay open minded and bits are a little out of date, but I am completely in control of my drinking now. In fact, I haven't had a drink for over a month (I was a daily drinker) and not had one craving or withdrawal, despite continuing a full social life.

    Good luck to the next reader, I hope Mr C works as well for you x

    "awesome, read it until the end"

    This book was enjoyable to listen to, it is a story, a life experience account and a strong and unforced message to all. This book helped me to open my mind to the reality of self perception and personal identity towards alcohol and its real place in YOUR life, as much as or little of importance upon YOUR life. The book can be listened to more than once as it allows you to measure your own personal journey with or without.

    "It worked!"
    What did you like most about The Easy Way to Control Alcohol?

    I was a bit cynical but wanted to quit and I thought I would give this a go. I have been drinking heavily now for 15 years (7-8pints a day easily) and after listening to this audio book I have completely stopped now for 2 weeks.


    What about Richard Mitchley’s performance did you like?

    He understands the issues and unravels them with emotional intelligence and IQ


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This guys talent was to clearly understand and articulate a map through what I did not think was possible and take me out of the maze I was trapped in. Easily the audiobook that will have the biggest impact on my life.

    Thank you Allen only wish I could thank you in person

    "That Was Easy"
    Any additional comments?

    Why I started this book.
    In the comments I read, I was encouraged by the heavy drinkers to pick up this book, because I didn't believe it could work. I had been to AA meetings and being an atheist, I immediately locked up. I would have gone to listen to the stories (like the narrator character in Fight Club), but not to experience change. I'm a sailor, and I developed a very heavy drinking habit, and was able to maintain it without many repercussions at work, because a lot of my bosses have heavy drinking problems. My wife said I needed to do something--and after countless times of shooting back a, "yeah, sure, I'll get on that." I finally realized that I might lose her if I didn't.

    My drinking.
    I would drink a six pack a night, about once or twice every month (this was meant for nights when I was exercising "control" because there was something important happening the next day): every other day of that month, I drank at least ten beers plus shots of whatever I had in the freezer. I'd finish off a 30 pack on Saturday and Sunday as long as I woke up in time to drink through the morning. I only breaks I took from drinking for the past 10 years where when I had to deploy or when I was too sick for the hair of the dog. I never drank to enjoy a beverage to complement a meal or any hoity toity nonsense like that: I drank to get drunk. And if I ever started drinking and couldn't reach that goal for some reason, I was mad.

    What the transition was like.
    I listened to the book in the car, washing dishes, etc. I didn't quit drinking when I started it, but I followed the instructions and I never listened while I was drinking. I had a lot of fear at first, but I decided to go to the bar with my wife and I knew my friends were going to have some questions about this, because I quit. Nowadays, I go to the bar to play golden tee golf, and darts, but I haven't had a drink in about three months, and I don't see any reason I'd ever drink again. I have to admit I was nervous to go to a bar and try to avoid drinking, but it's really easy.

    Bonus.
    I ended up reaping some great unexpected benefits, too. Sure, I feel better and I wake up more excited, but my mood has balanced out a lot. And I have always been someone who has a very uneven mood. I has allowed me to remove delusional beliefs in other areas of my life as well. You don't recognize how brainwashed you are until you start going through it one by one. My recommendation is to keep this self improvement going with a book like miracle morning or practicing mindfulness.

    Best wishes.

    "Brought back memories of clarity"

    A lot of the information in this book I already knew or completely forgot that I knew it. I've tried AA and other methods with no avail. It reminded me of how amazing I felt before I ever started drinking and made the population of drinkers seem like drones, slaves, zombies or what I like to call "sheeple". I could go on and on but I'll just say I was a 5th a night, black out kinda drunk and this revitalized my mind, soul and memory. I recommend putting in earphones and doing simple chores around the house while listening. I listened to the entire book in two sessions. I'm grateful to Mr. Carr.

    "Excellent narration of a life changing approach"

    No nonsense. No false hope. No pain.

    I quit smoking after 8 years thanks to him (4 years ago) and I'm part of the choir on this book too. His approach is empathetic and liberating. For anyone afraid to read it, you can drink or smoke while listen or read these and actually.... it really helps if you do.

    This book is transforming my life. I've listened three times. You'll see why when you read it. I've never been so changed by a book in my lifetime, next to the Bible. If you feel like alcohol may have hold of you, and you can't really control your consumption, or can't picture life without it, but wish you didn't need it... This book is for you!

    "Subliminal Messaging? Whatever Works!"
    What did you learn from The Easy Way to Control Alcohol that you would use in your daily life?

    The content itself seems unbelievably simple but after listening to it, I have no desire to drink. Was it hypnotism? Subliminal suggestion? It doesn't really matter to me, I am 2 weeks sober without struggle! 21 days in rehab were not as effective as these 8 hours.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't judge it until you give it a good try. I felt no desire to drink after listening to the first half, but completed the whole thing. Some of his ideas seem dated or regionally specific, but it still worked for me.

    "Fantastic- I wish I read it years ago"

    I have struggled with alcohol for a considerable period of time, read widely on the subject and attended more meetings than I care to admit. What makes this book so striking is its ability to break down the mess that glorify alcohol, thus removing the feeling of depravation. Highly recommended!

    It's not the chemical itself that addicts you its the belief that it gives you genuine pleasure that does! any false belief can be dispelled with the right information and this book has just that.

    "End the Brainwashing"
    Any additional comments?

    The book teaches to you look at alcohol as a poison as opposed to anything positive. It is a poison so it's not really in dispute. I liked the examples of when we first tried alcohol - you hated it, it was rancid, you wanted nothing to do with it. But for whatever reason we forced ourselves to drink it and viewed it in a positive light. As a result your body got used to it and you feel deeper into the trap.

    Personally the book caused me to change the way I think about alcohol and as a result I have cut out about 90% of my alcohol consumption. I will still have a drink on social occasions if I want to but it's not anything I think about. I didn't read the book to be abstinent but I could easily be and not really care about it at this point. Great book.
