But, I will tell you that if you have any concern about how much you drink, if you have guilts or regrets over what you have done or said while you were drinking, and if you can read Allen's book with an open mind and a desire to improve yourself, I am convinced it will change your life starting the day you finish the book!!!
I'm a tough [...] and people consider me a man's man. But, I will tell you that I cried tears of joy when I finished Allen's book! Don't let yourself be swayed by Gertrude's review of this book. And, I won't tell you the secret of Allen's teaching.
Buy it! It is a tiny price for the value it will bring to your life. Be open minded and sober when you read it. I am a much better man, father, husband, professional... all because of this book. Do yourself and those around you a favor. Give it a read!
I am 26, I have a successful job in the construction industry, have a great group of friends and family and my whole world revolves around cars. Talking, wrenching, watching, driving. It is in my blood. This seems irrelavent now but will make more sense later. I went to a great high school, played all the sports, never did drugs or drank in excess. Yes, I went to parties but it was not a every weekend event. Continued on to college and got a two year degree. I was paying for myself so I could not afford the required classes to get my Bachelors degree and in search of a job I ended up getting into construction.
By the time I was 20 I was probably drinking twice a week steady with some of the older guys I worked with. I turned 21 and without realizing it my drinking had shot through the roof. I was going out and buying this or that to try whether it be hard alcohol or microbrews. I did not think much of it since I was just doing what every other 21 year old was doing, right? Around the age of 23 I realized I had a major problem on my hands. I was buying a pint of Jagermeister a night and could slam the entire bottle in one shot.Read more ›
I must say, Mr. Carr's approach to controlling (quitting) drinking was unlike anything I had ever heard, and I've read a lot on the subject, including the AA Big Book. It was nice to hear for once that I didn't need to go to 12-step meetings to be cured or check into rehab for 30 days or talk to a shrink about how daddy didn't love me enough.
It was intriguing to hear that I had simply fallen for a trick, fallen into a trap. He did an excellent job of dispelling all the common myths surrounding alcohol and why we feel attracted to it or in need of it. He tackled the problem in a very logical way by exploring what we really benefit from drinking. If you look close enough you will realize that there is no benefit whatsoever.
In other words, he very effectively and systematically removed my desire to drink; something neither AA, nor my doctor, nor my family, nor a judge could do. About halfway through the book, I knew that I wouldn't drink again! It is truly amazing, given my long history of alcohol abuse and failed attempts. At this current writing I'm 5 weeks sober and have not had any cravings for booze, which was a daily battle before coming across this gem.
Like another reviewer said, I feel like the book has hypnotized me in a way. I almost instantly went from waking up every day and praying to have the strength to fight off the temptations to waking up every day and simply knowing that the fight is over and I have won.Read more ›
