Summary

The Fastest Way to Stop Drinking... Imagine if tomorrow you wake up with no hangover, no regrets and feeling full of energy and vitality. Picture your bank account with thousands of extra dollars in it and imagine what life would be like if you had a limitless abundance of quality time with your family and loved ones? If you are drinking on a regular basis then alcohol is stealing all that from you everyday. My name is Craig Beck; I used to be just like you... My drinking was hopelessly out of control for nearly two decades. Nothing I tried made any difference, I attempted dry weeks and months but I always just ended up drinking even more than before. My doctor agreed it was time to cut down but he could offer no practical solution to help me to do so. I concluded that the only way I was going to escape the insidious trap of alcohol was to throw away all the ‘advice' I had been previously given and do the unthinkable. The result is, I not only cured my own drink problem but I have since helped over 50,000 fellow drinkers to also escape.

  • No need to declare yourself an alcoholic.
  • A permanent cure, not a lifetime struggle.
  • No group meetings or expensive rehab.
  • No humiliation, no pain and 100% no ‘willpower' required.
  • No cravings, no medication and no silly gimmicks.

By the way… there are two very similar version of this book (only the title varies slightly). The fact you have found this one and not the other is a very good sign. Inside I will tell you why.

Honest and fresh advice

I've read quite a few quit drinking alcohol books and listened to a fair few audios and I have to say that I found this one very refreshing, authentic and also practical. I really like Beck's non-judgemental attitude and his low pressure approach. He doesn't try to harangue you into stopping drinking but skilfully takes you on a compelling journey to your own decision. Whether or not it's stopped me drinking forever, I'll have to wait and see. I guess only I can do that. It certainly has taken me to a different place on my quest for a healthier life though. Thank you Craig. Highly recommended!

Listen twice

I was a binge drinker. Drinking between 10-15 pints Heineken per weekend session. Dying with a depressing hangover for days afterwards. I listened to this book and I was going to give it a 2 star review because I didn’t really get it. I went and bought another book that uses the willpower method to stop drinking. As I was listening to that book I kept getting called back to this book. It’s really very effective and made me realise what alcohol is. A disgusting poison that makes you ill and depressed. This book is Truth. Buy it, listen to it with an open mind, Twice or more if you need to, and look forward to a healthier and happier life.

insightful

Made me really reflect about the reasons as to why I drink. it's not an over night cure for my drinking problem but it certainly gives alot of helpful advice on how to stop drinking. Was worth listening to and it has encouraged me to bite the bullet and stop

Wow!

I loved this book. I listened to it and finished it in two days. I can honestly say that it deeply resonated with me, I especially enjoyed the author Craig narrating as it seemed much more personal. He has a way of reaching out to a people from a more multiplatformed approach and credit to him for that. Whatever your story or position is with alcohol I have no doubt this will get you thinking differently towards it and that is the whole point. if you change your thought process then you can change your feelings towards anything. I am grateful that I found this book.

brilliant... poison in pretty packaging

really enjoyed listening to this audible. The delivery is good and it's not a case of you making you feel bad but make you realise the truth about alcohol. Its really good for self- development.

FINALLY ....

... someone witty and intelligent tells us how to give up alcohol in a way other than 12 steps, higher powers, guilt and desperation!!! I have been waiting for this for decades, literally. I knew there had to be a way to deal with my functional "alcoholism" other than holding hands with strangers in a church basement. Craig Beck offers a unique approach by speaking to us with humor and respect. He shows us that the real culprit is alcohol itself -- and the culture that celebrates it. He speaks to the drinker as a strong person who unwittingly finds him/herself in a bad situation and wants to get out of it. No need to feel weak or guilty, no matter how many times you have tried to quit and failed. He explains exactly -- and convincingly -- why you should try again. And he offers a simple, logical and personal way to succeed. I gave up my wine before I even finished the book, and am looking forward to listening to the rest of his books. His writing/speaking style is casual, funny, articulate and motivating. Hellfire and damnation are definitely missing from his message. I wish EVERYONE would read this book, whether they want to stop drinking or not. His insights are valuable to all of us.

Straightforward logic.

A refreshing, out-of-the-box delivery about the reality of alcohol. I'm a huge fan of giving people options to pursue recovery. Recovery isn't a cookie-cutter. Craig Beck delivers the ugly truth about alcohol, the "attractively packaged poison". No quick-fix gimmick. No bashing of any path of recovery.
