Book Description

This groundbreaking book from the UK's leading spokesman on nutrition looks at why millions of people have cravings for substances such as coffee, sugar and alcohol, as well to drugs such as sleeping pills, antidepressants, marijuana and cocaine. It uncovers how the brain becomes addicted and how it can be 'unaddicted' through a combination of diet, supplements and lifestyle factors. The book is written in association with Dr David Miller, who has worked in the addiction field for 25 years and is an expert in relapse prevention. It looks at each of the most common substances that people become addicted to and offers specific advice on how to tackle that particular substance safely and effectively yourself. In-depth yet practical and accessible, HOW TO QUIT WITHOUT FEELING S**T, will allow you to understand why you feel the way you do, whether you have a depndency or have already given up but still feel lousy. The book provides a 12-week action plan for becoming addiction free - without suffering the deeply unpleasant symptoms of withdrawal that most addicts believe they must go through

Editorial Reviews


Another excellent book from Patrick Holford, this deals with addictions - not just alcohol, drugs and nicotine - but sugar and caffeine too. All have major impacts on health and well-being and are difficult to give up without expert help. Using nutrition and providing the right nutrients and supplements, investigating allergies, stabilising blood sugar levels and addressing the psychological reasons for addiction the Brain Bio Clinic, founded by Holford, helps many people every year. This book is written for anyone who feels it is time to take control of their lives, rather than being run by their addictions and experiencing the mental and physical consequences. It isn't made out to be easy, but a detailed run down of how to approach each addiction gives an insight in how to change. There are plenty of resources, references and places to get help included as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally a REAL solution to addiction, a life saver December 12, 2012
By burbol
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I don't usually write reviews, but this time I feel that it's very important for people to know that this book offers a REAL solution to addiction. I can't be grateful enough for having found it. It works, people, really, it works. I have tried so many times (at least 20 times) to get off my opiate addiction during the last six years, but nothing seemed to work. Any addict will relate to the depression that this fight puts you in. When you read this book, you understand completely why you feel as you feel. I can"t explain it so well as they do. But the main problem is that your brain changes while taking drugs, and these changes last for many years if not all life long. The authors state a great truth: many addicts manage to overcome the physical part of the withdrawal, as hard as this can be. But the harder part to overcome is the "psychological" or "mental" part. When you feel so depressed that you can't even smile or speak normally with people or eat or take a shower, etc, then it's no wonder that one goes back to drugs just to feel "normal". And the authors of this book understand this fact so well, that not only do they describe it wonderfully, but they have managed to create a detox plan based on simple stuff such as food supplements (vitamins, amino acids, essential fats, etc), and food. They also give you some other advices about activities that can make you feel better, like exercising or meditating. The whole book is written from the perspective of how the brain works. For example, they explain that exercising is good when quitting drugs because it raises your endorphin levels. Another thing you will find in this book are very precise instructions on how to quit different addictions -not only opiates- including cigarettes and antidepressants. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm Off Sugar! July 2, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I read this book and started the program over a month ago. My physical and mental health are still improving, not where I want to be yet, but I have not had ANY sugary filled deserts in 35 days. I've been struggling with low blood sugar and trying to stay away from sugar since I was 12 - 36 years. I've tried Kathleen Desmaison and The Zone and Eat Right 4 Your Type. All of those have been helpful, but I've never licked the habit for this long before without a huge struggle. I don't even WANT sugar anymore. I've NEVER been able to say that. I'm excited.

This book is fantastic! Am using some suggestions about supplements to curb depression with outstanding results! As a person with limited medical coverage and a need to perform at my best daily, this book has been a life saver! Plan to use in my couseling practice as well for those who do not want to use meds and have mild symptoms. Great book!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Goes beyond addictions, even... November 9, 2013
This book is not just excellent in addressing addictions in terms of what they are, but helping you use amino-acid therapy to reinforce your willpower, build better relationships, and eat better food that supports your health-giving personal project. It certainly takes you away from artificial things that undermine the very achievements people struggle to make: those that replace one addiction with another, and instead gives you the opportunity to create that 'bridge' to a more rounded personality, a stabler mind, a mind that can take the strain and not give in.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent healing resource January 3, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent "how to" book. It can save many of lives. This info is what the medical profession does not want you to know. I am withdrawing from effexor with no symptoms. Amino acids are essential in the healing processes as well as other recommended supplements and changing subconscious fears and beliefs.
