Alcohol Lied to Me – The Intelligent Escape from Alcohol Addiction
Craig Beck is a well-regarded family man with two children, a nice home, and a successful media career; a director of several companies and at one time the trustee of a large children’s charity. Outwardly, Craig was a highly successful and functioning professional man in spite of a ‘two-bottles-of-wine-a-night” drinking habit.
For 20 years he struggled to control his drinking, all the time refusing to label himself an alcoholic because he didn’t believe he met the stereotypical image that the word portrayed. He tried countless ways to cut down; attempting ‘dry months’, banning himself from drinking spirits, only drinking at the weekend and special occasions (and found that it is amazing how even the smallest of event can suddenly become ‘special’).
Alcohol Lied to Me
All these ‘willpower’ based attempts to stop drinking failed (exactly as they were destined to do). Slowly he discovered the truth about alcohol addiction and one by one all the lies he had previously believed started to fall apart. For the first time he noticed that he genuinely didn’t want to drink anymore. In this book he will lead you though the same amazing process.
I am a recent beneficiary of your book, Alcoholism Lied to Me. The reviews on Amazon convinced me to try it to address my 1-and-growing bottle of wine a night habit that I could not stop. In fact, I thought about alcohol almost all the time & could never resist the desire to open the wine after 4 PM. Used to be 5 PM, sometimes earlier, then I started recently to open a 2nd bottle, and was generally “fast asleep” (=passed out) by 9. Last month, I found your book, and a couple of weeks later I spent a week with some old (we are all quite old) college friends. During that week, I decided not to drink and did not, and I haven’t since then. It was a watershed. Today is 5 weeks since the last whole bottle+; Tuesday will be 5 weeks since ½ glass on September 25th.
This is awesome so far. On some afternoons I do have a deep longing for a drink, and that voice keeps telling me how good it would be to have one. It’s happening as I write, in fact. But so far, the voice has been silenced or kept at a distance, and I have not been thinking about alcohol & having a drink except on those intermittent afternoons. I attribute that to your message—alcohol is poison etc.—and thank you for providing it.
Alcohol has been an issue for me in one way or another since I was 12, which was a long time ago. I would tell you the stories, but you probably have heard them many times before. Thanks so much for the help!
