Publisher's 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.

classic bait and switch - beware

while the book is intriguing, it doesn't provide much info on how to stop drinking other than to stop, take some supplements and do some affirmations. THEN at the end he instructs you to go to his website to join his group to get started. I did and just found more sales pitch and an invitation to join for $600. classic bait and switch. beware....if you are wanting a book that provides the actual solution, this isn't it. not sure if his program works, I didn't subscribe.

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.

It worked!!

Finally! I have tried everything and have been going to AA for years, but this information was what I needed to hear! I no longer crave alcohol or feel like I am missing something I used to love. I realize all the lies I was telling myself and view alcohol as poison. Thank you! I finally feel like me again…happy, joyous and free!!

I have my life back!

After almost 20 years of drinking daily, I have changed my mind set about alcohol which then allowed me to change my behavior. I no longer drink and do not miss it at all. This book was an answer to prayer for a way out out of the bondage of being a slave to alcohol. I thank God for you Craig for writing this book, helping myself and so many others! I also loved Alcohol Lied to me. What a blessing your writings are.

I liked the book, but the additional promised support in the book did not exist when I tried many times to reach out to Craig Beck for access to the additional help mentioned in the book. I just got flooded with robo emails from his organization.

Craig confirmed what I've been thinking and feeling: alcohol is poison with a great marketing job. I love his clarity and simplicity. I highly recommend it.

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.

Couldn't just stop drinking or why I found myself 2 glasses in on a work night, this puts it all in to perspective, thank you

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

Really works

I read listened to this book 14months ago after I'd had enough of not being able to control my drinking after numerous attempts and hadnt touched another drop of alcohol since, until last week when I thought I'd just have a few drinks. OMG I have not missed that vile feeling the next day or the feeling at the time of knowing I'm not in the best control of my thoughts and actions, so have listened to it again and do not want to touch another drop of the rancid poison again. My partner listened to it and didn't drink for a year either.

loved it

pick it carefully
if you have others
there are huge repeated sections.
no hypnotherapy to finish off.
i think it needed that as a final tool for the tool box.
worth a purchase..

A friendly chat

After a long festive season, where at the end always finishes with my birthday, this year I turned 38. That's 20 years of solid drinking. TWENTY YEARS of damaging my body (maybe irreparably), 2-0 years of countless nights that I can't even remember, half a life time of hangovers and excuses. I've been feeling that enough is enough for a while, but working in an industry where drinking is life and being in a family where big nights are rife, I've longed for a silent and effective way out.
I downloaded this book because of 2 things, the title and the reviews. Craig never professes to be a guru, or the first guy to come up with the ideas; he just explains it as a normal person (like me, like you) in a way that makes sense.
I was on a looooong car trip and listened to this book in one go. The car trip was that long I even replayed a few chapters. When I did get to my destination I signed up to the website straight away. Loads of great content as well as the needed support you require when you make this positive choice.
If you need some friendly advice and don't feel as if you can approach one of your own friends, then Craig has your back!
If you got this far, thanks for reading, listen to this book, you will get something out of it, whether it be life changing or reassurance. I wish you the best of luck
